“The attention and negativity coming from Kanye and his antics is a trigger for [Pete], and he’s had to seek out help,” the source stated.
They revealed that the therapy began in April this year, shortly after Kanye’s online attacks began.
The damaging posts and commentary began with memes in which Kanye would pit himself against Pete and culminated in him referring to Pete as ‘Skete’ in posts where he attacked Kim as well, accusing her of keeping his children away from him and disbanding their family.
He also rapped about harming Pete in the song Eazy, singing “God saved me from that crash just so I can beat Pete Davidson’s ass”.

Reports have also emerged that Kanye might have removed the newspaper post at Kim’s insistence.
“[Kim] won’t stand for this. She is demanding that Kanye take the post down,” an insider revealed to The Daily Mail.
“She has been vigorously defending Pete,” they added.
“She’ll never get back together with Kanye over the way he’s treated the people she loves and respects. She has tried incredibly hard to have a good co-parenting situation for the children.
“She won’t stand for this type of behaviour from him.”
Kim and Kanye began divorce proceedings in 2021, but they’ve been heavily protracted.
It was recently reported by Rolling Stone that Kanye’s fifth divorce lawyer has now withdrawn from the case.
Kim told Vogue this year that "for so long, I did what made other people happy".
“And I think in the last two years I decided, I'm going to make myself happy… And that feels really good. And even if that created changes and caused my divorce, I think it's important to be honest with yourself about what really makes you happy."
