SNL actor has had a rough history with marijuana and first went to rehab for excessive use in 2016
Cindy Crawford is here to help.
The former supermodel is reportedly stepping in to help Pete Davidson, her daughter’s boyfriend, as the actor goes through another rough patch. The Saturday Night Live actor and Kaia Gerber have been together since October, E! News reported, but Crawford and husband Rande Gerber have become increasingly concerned about him of late.
“It’s been a very stressful and concerning few days,” a source close to Crawford told the entertainment site. “Cindy and Rande wanted to be there for Kaia and supportive of her. They are very involved and loving parents and they would do anything for her. They stepped in to try and guide her and to help Pete through a difficult time.”
Davidson has spoken about some of these difficulties in the past, revealing last year that he had given up his daily cannabis habit during a rehab stint in 2016. He later admitted his sobriety only lasted three months and he returned to marijuana to treat his health issues, primarily the symptoms from Crohn’s disease.
However, during treatment, Davidson admitted he learned that “it wasn’t the weed” causing his problems and he felt more miserable off the substance than when he was taking it.
“I was sober for three months at one point and was like, ‘This f—ing sucks,’” he told Howard Stern last year.
“I have Crohn’s disease, so it helps more than you can imagine. There was a point where I couldn’t get out of bed (due to the pain). I was 110 pounds,” he said. “I also just love smoking weed. I’ve been smoking weed every day for eight years.”
The star also suffers from borderline personality disorder, which reportedly leaves him depressed “all the time.”
Davidson stoked speculation he might be heading back to rehab when he appeared on Weekend Update on the Dec. 21 episode of SNL. After being asked about his plans, the actor nonchalantly replied, “Oh, I’m going on a little ‘vacation,’” putting the word in air quotes. “You know, the kind of vacation where insurance pays for some of it, and they take your phone and shoelaces and you have roommates, but it still costs like 100 grand.”
Crawford has her work cut out for her.
