Pete Davidson checks into rehab for mental health struggles

Kat O'Connor

Pete Davidson is in rehab for mental health issues, including PTSD.

A source close to the comedian confirmed he is doing well, but has been struggling with Borderline Personality Disorder as well as PTSD.

An insider told Page Six that Davidson is being treated at a rehab facility in Pennsylvania.

The Saturday Night Live star regularly goes to rehab, a friend told the publication.

They shared, “Pete regularly goes to rehab for ‘tune-ups’ and to take a mental break, so that’s what’s happening.”

Friends said the Set It Up star is taking a “well-deserved break”.

“Anyone who knows Pete knows that he will always step up and get help when he knows he needs it. He has a lot of people in his corner who love him and support him, and are proud of him,” they said.

Davidson’s admission to rehab comes after he was charged with reckless driving after he crashed his car into his home in Beverly Hills.

He was also recently forced to apologise to the head of PETA after he left a “foul-mouthed rant” on her phone.

Davidson has often been praised for being so honest about his mental health struggles.

He told Glenn Close during Variety’s Acting on Acting:

“I got diagnosed with BPD a few years ago, and I was always just so confused all the time, and just thought something was wrong, and didn’t know how to deal with it. Then, when somebody finally tells you, the weight of the world feels lifted off your shoulders. You feel so much better.”
