Pete Davidson is beefing up security in the wake of Kanye West’s threat.
A new report claims that the “SNL” star has hired extra security after Ye threatened to beat him up on his new collaboration with The Game.
“God saved me from that crash / Just so I can beat Pete Davidson’s ass,” Ye raps on “Eazy,” while his new girlfriend Julia Fox reportedly provides the ad lib, “Who?”
“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,” a source tells Radar Online.
Pete and Kim Kardashian’s relationship has been heating up in the wake of Kim and Ye’s pending divorce, and 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,” says a source. “He is still Pete, but now Pete comes with a 6’1, 220 lbs security guard.”
Pete had to hire additional security once he started dating the Skims mogul. “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,” adds the source. “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.”
Pete’s decision to beef up his security comes after Ye claimed that Kim’s security wouldn’t let him inside her house to see their kids because Pete was inside, which Kim has denied.
Ye also called out the Kardashians for not giving him the address to his daughter Chicago’s 4th birthday party. However, he later made it to the party thanks to Travis Scott. Kim chalked it up to a miscommunication, explaining that they were supposed to throw separate parties for Chicago.
