The 28-year-old comedian has been dating Kim Kardashian for months now, coinciding with a period where the 41-year-old reality star and entrepreneur has been divorcing the 44-year-old record producer and fashion designer.
It hasn't been all smooth sailing; far from it. Kanye, who has spoken publicly about his struggles with bipolar disease, has lashed out on a number of occasions at the couple. Perhaps most notably (or at least graphically) is when the rapper circulated a disturbing video on Instagram, to coincide with his new single ‘Eazy,' which showed a claymation caricature of Pete being kidnapped and buried alive.
Apparently, we'll get answers on her new Disney+ series.
Then there was Valentine's Day incident, where Kanye arranged for a truck of roses to be delivered to Kim's home and issued threats towards Pete – a gesture some have dubbed "love bombing" and even Kanye has subsequently admitted in a statement might have been regarded as “harassing” and “jarring.”
Pete – who does not have social media – has thus far remained out of the conflict. But it seems things have changed, judging by a text exchange between him and Kanye in which the former warned his girlfriend's partner: “I’m gonna stop being nice.”
Screenshots of the text exchange were circulated in a post on Instagram by comedian and writer Dave Sirus, a close friend of Pete Davidson. While Dave's account is private, the post has been highlighted by US publication Page Six.
For context, it is understood to have come in response to Kanye posting a video criticising Kim for letting the pair's eldest daughter, North, eight, use TikTok.
“If you're rapping about Pete Davidson, Pete wins.”
This was apparently the straw that broke the camel's back for Pete, who texted Kanye the following: “Kim is literally the best mother I’ve ever met. What she does for those kids is amazing and you are so f–king lucky that she’s your kids mom. I’ve decided im not gonna let you treat us this way anymore and I’m done being quiet. Grow the f**k up.
