SNL’s Pete Davidson: ‘I Would’ve Killed Myself If I Didn’t Have Kid Cudi’

Kid Cudi saved Pete Davidson’s life.

At least that’s how the comedian, who is a junior cast member on Saturday Night Live, describes it. During an appearance on The Breakfast Club Tuesday morning, Davidson explained his loyalty to Cudi: “He saved my life. I would’ve killed myself if I didn’t have Kid Cudi. If you’re 25 and under, I truly believe that Kid Cudi saved your life. … I truly believe if Man on the Moon didn’t come out, I wouldn’t be here.”

Earlier this month, Kid Cudi opened up about his struggles on his Facebook page:

My anxiety and depression have ruled my life for as long as I can remember and I never leave the house because of it. I cant make new friends because of it. I dont trust anyone because of it and Im tired of being held back in my life. I deserve to have peace. I deserve to be happy and smiling. Why not me? I guess I give so much of myself to others I forgot that I need to show myself some love too.

It’s that vulnerability that changed everything for Davidson. “I think that’s why a lot of kids my age can relate to Cudi and people love him so much is because he’s a very emotional dude, and he saves all of us.”

Davidson told the hosts that he has talked to Cudi and says he’s in “really good spirits” in rehab.
