Pete Davidson is seeking help after his recent split from Kim Kardashian and the harassment he has endured at the hands of her ex.
Soon after Kardashian and Davidson’s breakup this weekend, Kanye West shared a threatening post on his Instagram, featuring a photo of a fake New York Times newspaper with the all-caps headline, “Skete Davidson Dead at Age 28.”
He also wrote in the post, “Kid Cudi meant to play funeral but fearful of bottle throwers,” making a reference to his nemesis Cudi leaving during his performance at the Rolling Loud music festival last month after people in the crowd began throwing objects at him.

Per People, reps for Kardashian and Davidson contacted Instagram about taking down the post, which has since been deleted. The source said Davidson’s “team and Kim’s have reached out repeatedly to Instagram asking to make the platform a safer space.”
Still, the comedian—who briefly activated his Instagram during his relationship with Kardashian, but has since deactivated it—has “been absent from social media” as result of West’s frequent attacks, an insider told the outlet.
He “has been in trauma therapy in large part [due to Kanye],” the source said of Davidson. “The attention and negativity coming from Kanye and his antics is a trigger for [Pete], and he’s had to seek out help.”

West’s latest Instagram attack against the former Saturday Night Live comedian comes after the rapper viciously insulted him for months on social media and accused him of stealing his family, referring to Davidson’s nine-month relationship with the SKIMS founder.
This March, the “Heartless” rapper released a music video for his song “Eazy,” in which he depicted himself in Claymation form kidnapping and burying a Claymation version of Davidson. He eventually took the clip down and was temporarily banned from Instagram for the harassment.

Davidson and Kardashian stayed mostly silent about West’s threats, though the comedian did reportedly send the rapper a string of texts asking him to stop harassing him and Kardashian, and a selfie of him in the SKKN founder‘s bed.
Despite the bad blood with West that came from his relationship with Kardashian, the insider said Davidson “has no regrets” about the romance and is appreciative of all the support she has given him. Having said that, “moving forward he just wants to focus on his career,” the source added of Davidson, who is currently filming the movie Wizards! in Australia.
