Pete Davidson’s intimate colleagues have informed the media that Davidson has hired an additional security because of Kanye West indicating to beat him up. Davidson, a comedian, is the new boyfriend of socialite Kim Kardashian following her on-going divorce with West.
An informant said, “Pete isn’t worried about Kanye, but he is concerned about the massive fanbase that Kanye has. His devoted followers listen to his songs and act upon them. That’s why Pete is now using security.”
“Until recently Pete never had security with him when he was out and about, even when he was engaged to Ariana Grande. But dating Kim (Kardashian) is a totally different level of fame. Pete is now a superstar, which comes with a price. As much as he still wants to be low-key and hang with his friends, the reality of his situation has changed,” said a source.
West, who recently legally changed his name into “Ye,” rapped “God saved me from that crash/ just so I can beat Pete Davidson’s ass,” in his previously released song, “My Life Was Never Eazy,” which he recorded in collaboration with fellow American rapper The Game.
This threatening line has sparked fear in Davidson for its influence on West’s fans. After all, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
“Pete isn’t taking any chances. Whenever he is out with Kim, they use her security. But now Pete needs his own security when he is out alone,” adds another close mate. “He is still Pete, but now Pete comes with a 6’1, 220 lbs security guard.”
This arrangement to strengthen security was decided upon following West’s public outburst during the weekend. In an Instagram Live, West claimed that his future ex-wife Kim threw a birthday party for their daughter Chicago without considering issuing an invitation for him.
West further accused Kim of concealing the party location from him. All of this happened while he recorded himself driving all over town, navigating the address.
In the end, West was found to be at the party talking to Kris Jenner, his ex-wife’s mother, and hanging around with his daughter. Kim reportedly said these claims were untrue. However, she assumed that they were organizing different birthday parties for Chicago because of their separation.
Sources said that West had actually thrown a birthday party for their daughter but it was soon after his buzz on Kim’s organized party.
