Pete Davidson Acting Like A 'Total Diva' At 'SNL' Since Kim Kardashian Romance, Costars Starting To 'Turn On Him': Source
Pete Davidson's Saturday Night Live costars think he may be in need of an attitude adjustment.
The 28-year-old comedian — who has recently been making headlines for his whirlwind romance with Kim Kardashian — seems to be getting caught up in his growing stardom.
Davidson has reportedly turned into "a total diva at SNL," since getting involved with the A-lister, stated a source to The Sun. "He missed the first few days of rehearsal last week and was still allowed to be in Saturday's show."
According to the outlet, Davidson has been acting as if he is above the rules and is getting away with things that normally wouldn't slide. "Normally if you miss any rehearsals, you are out of the show on Saturday night," the insider continued. "The cast is starting to turn on him."
Meanwhile, The King of Staten Island star has been doing more than just skipping out on rehearsals, as he "also now has security for when he's outside the building," causing his costars to become bitter over the extra attention. "Colin [Jost] married an actual movie star [Scarlett Johansson] and yet Pete is getting more attention," the source reportedly said.
As OK! previously reported, Davidson recently vamped up his security team after Kardashian's estranged husband, Kanye West, threatened to get physical with him. In the rapper's latest song "Eazy" with The Game, West insisted he was going to "beat Pete Davidson's a**."
"Pete isn't worried about Kanye, but he is concerned about the massive fanbase that Kanye has," an insider dished after the song dropped last weekend. "His devoted followers listen to his songs and act upon them. That's why Pete is now using security."
The actor's need to hire new security comes with the territory when dating the Keeping Up With the Kardashians alum, who also has her own massive security team.
"Until recently Pete never had security with him when he was out and about, even when he was engaged to Ariana Grande. But Kim is a totally different level of fame," the source pointed out. "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."
