Pete Davidson enters rehab to work on mental health, TMZ reports

Actor and comedian Pete Davidson is reportedly taking some time away from the spotlight.

According to a report from TMZ, Davidson has entered rehab to work on his mental health.

TMZ and Page Six had previously reported that the former Saturday Night Live star may be living with PTSD and borderline personality disorder. For years, Davidson has used his platform to raise awareness of mental illness.

The King of Staten Island star has opened up about his borderline personality disorder diagnosis with an interview with Glenn Close on Entertainment Tonight. Davidson has previously called out rapper Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, in a SNL skit, saying, "being mentally ill is not an excuse to act like a jackass."
