Pete Davidson Checks Into Rehab Over Mental Health Struggles

Saturday Night Live alum Pete Davidson has entered rehab.

A source close to the actor comedian confirmed to PEOPLE that Davidson, 29, checked himself into treatment but “should be getting out pretty soon.”

According to Page Six, which first reported the news, Davidson entered the treatment center seeking in-patient therapy to address ongoing issues related to post-traumatic stress disorder and his previous diagnosis of borderline personality disorder.

Another source told PEOPLE, “Pete will often check himself into rehab to work on these issues. His friends and family have been supportive during this time.”

Davidson has long been open about his mental health struggles. In 2017, he publicly revealed his borderline personality disorder diagnosis while appearing on Marc Maron’s WTF podcast, describing what led to the diagnosis and his time in rehab in December 2016.

Davidson discussed his extreme mood swings, which he initially credited to his regular marijuana use, since he had a “mental breakdown” after returning from rehab and resuming use of the drug. But he was eventually diagnosed with BPD several months later.

“I found out I have BPD, which is borderline personality disorder,” he said. “One of my psychiatrists [diagnosed me]. He was always saying before this big meltdown, ‘You’re probably bipolar or borderline, we’re just going to have to figure it out.'”
