Kanye West has been feuding with Pete Davidson for quite some time now. The rap icon even nicknamed Pete as “Skete.” Just recently, Kanye insisted that he ran off Pete from the social media site, Instagram. However, according to new reports, Ye’s claims might not have been true.
Despite Kanye West’s assertions, Pete Davidson did not deactivate his latest Instagram account because of the rapper’s relentless online attacks. A source close to the “Saturday Night Live” star told Page Six, “Pete deleted his IG because immediately after his first post he started receiving a flood of messages, both positive and negative, reminding him why he didn’t want social media to begin with.”
Pete’s last post before deleting his Instagram page was a clip from comedian Rupert Pupkin, where he recites his legendary quote “Better to be king for a night than schmuck for a lifetime.” Soon after he shared the post his fans flooded his DMs with messages.
“[Pete] is in the middle of several big film projects and wants to continue to stay very focused on his work and the positive things happening in his life,”
The source asserted, “Kanye didn’t drive Pete off social media.” The Donda 2 artist has been relentless in his pursuit of Pete. He has called out Pete time and time again in a bizarre attempt to win back estranged wife Kim Kardashian. Ye even referred the comedian as “dickhead.”
The exes are still at odds over their divorce. West recently voiced his objections at Kardashian’s efforts to expedite the divorce process. The mother of four begged a judge to sign off on the split due to West allegedly causing “emotional distress” with his social media attacks.
