Earlier this year, Kanye shared multiple posts on his social media space where he allegedly threatened and trolled Pete. Though the comedian never made any official statements or responded on social media on the same, a source of People revealed that Pete was seeking trauma therapy at the time because of the negativity brought by West’s posts and hate comments from his fans.

As per Page Six, the SKIMS mogul was ‘very supportive’ of Pete for his decision to take therapy. An insider told the magazine, “Kanye was very detrimental. He was posting negative things — now add thousands and thousands of comments. Someone has to work with you to deal with something like that.”

According to the source, the comedian also received death threats from Ye’s fans, which was partially the reason that he went to therapy in April. Another source stated, “Getting death threats from [Kanye’s] fans and all the negative attention online doesn’t feel good for the average person — add someone who’s struggled with mental illness, and it’s even worse.”

Back in 2018, Pete opened up about his mental health struggles and has been actively advocating for the same.

Meanwhile, Pete is in Australia working on a film for about three months. He and Kim parted ways last week citing the reason as the duo is busy with their schedules and also the distance. However, the former couple has decided to ‘stay best of friends.’
