After months of receiving online harassment from Kanye West for being in a relationship with his ex-wife, Kim Kardashian, Pete Davidson has finally reached out to the rapper to talk things through and to ask to stop the attacks on him and Kim.
In leaked text messages, Pete stood up for himself as he expressed that he’s “done being quiet” and that Kanye should “grow the f*** up.”
He even shared a selfie of himself to taunt Kanye about being “in bed with [his] wife.”
Kanye didn’t seem fazed by the photo, however, and merely commented about Pete being “out of the hospital and rehab.” It can be recalled that Pete has openly discussed having Borderline Personality Disorder which has made him struggle with his mental health. But Pete welcomed the jab and turned the tables instead on the rapper to insinuate that he, too, should try to get help.
“It’s wonders what those places do when you go get help. You should try it,” Pete told Kanye. He then informed Kanye that he’s currently in Los Angeles if he ever wants to “stop being a little internet b**** boy and talk.”
Pete goes on to say that, despite the threats and the harassment, he isn’t scared of Kanye at all, claiming that Kanye’s actions are just “embarrassing” and “sad.” He also stressed that what Kanye has been doing online is harmful to Kim and their children and that he should learn how to keep things private.
“What you’re doing to your family is dangerous and going to scar them for life. Please handle these matters privately bro I beg you,” Pete continued. “This isn’t public dude. I’m not here for pictures and press. Which is obviously all you care about.”
Pete urged Kanye to agree to meet him so they can talk privately one-on-one, “man to man.”
“I wish you’d man up for once in your life. Let me help you,” he added. “I struggle with mental health stuff too. It’s not an easy journey. You don’t have to feel this way anymore. There’s no shame in having a little help. You’ll be so happy and at peace.”
Pete then listed down all the ways he’s “been nice” to Kanye over the years despite how he’s being treated. He mentioned how he “stopped” stand-up comedians and his show “Saturday Night Live” from making frequent jokes about the rapper and how he’s defended Kanye on occasion.
But he’s almost at his limit.
“If you continue to press me like you have for the past 6 months I’m gonna stop being nice,” he ended.
Kanye did not reply to the lengthy message.
