Kanye West says he’s worried about Pete Davidson’s influence on Kim Kardashian – and he’s revealed he’s biggest fear about his wife’s new boyfriend.
Kanye West is now concerned about Pete Davidson’s influence on Kim Kardashian.
The Yeezy designer went on a social media tear against the “Saturday Night Live” star early Wednesday, saying he is “really concerned” Davidson will get his ex-wife “hooked on drugs.”
“Im [sic] really concerned that SKETE will get my kids mom hooked on drugs,” West captioned an Instagram post of a follower’s comment about Davidson. “He’s in rehab every 2 months.”
It’s unclear what made the Flashing Lights rapper discuss Davidson’s history with drugs, as the comment he screenshotted read, “The way Skete used Kim’s marital status too [sic] address Kanye was a sneak diss towards her & she didn’t even catch it.”

Davidson, 28, has been candid about his love of marijuana but always has maintained that he has “never really” done any other drugs. At one point, before he was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder, he thought his mental illness was a “drug problem.”
“I’ve been a pothead forever. Around October [or] September last year, I started having these mental breakdowns where I would, like, freak out and then not remember what happened after. Blind rage,” he disclosed on the “WTF With Marc Maron” podcast in September 2017 after completing a stint in rehab in Utah.
“I never really did any drugs, so I was, like, ‘I’m gonna try to go to rehab. Maybe that’ll be helpful.’ So I go and get off weed. They told me, they’re like, ‘You might be bipolar.’ … One of my psychiatrists [diagnosed me].”
The comedian has been to rehab a couple of times to handle his mental health issues. He most recently sought treatment in Arizona in 2019 following his split from Kaia Gerber.
Since entering a relationship with the Skims founder, 41, last year, Davidson has implored West, 44, to go seek help for his bipolar disorder.
“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,” he added. “I have your back even though you treat me like s**t because I want everything to be smooth. But if you continue to press me like you have for the past 6 months I’m gonna stop being so nice.”
West and Kardashian were married from 2014 to 2022 and share four children: North, 8, Saint, 6, Chicago, 4, and Psalm, 2.
