Kanye West is allegedly spreading rumors that Pete Davidson is gay and had AIDS

On Jan. 28, Page Six reported that Kanye West has been spreading some unfounded rumors about Pete Davidson. Sources told the publication that the rapper is telling “anyone who will listen” that the SNL star is gay and has AIDS. West also allegedly said that Davidson is a “junkie” and has threatened to have him beaten up. 

The sources’ claims align with comments recently made by DJ Akademiks on Twitch. “Kanye has been telling anyone within an earshot of himself, he’s trying to spread a rumor that Pete Davidson has AIDS,” the YouTuber said. “I’m telling you this is a fact. I’ve heard this from eight people. He’s telling everybody!”

DJ Akademiks expressed disapproval for the rapper’s alleged behavior. “Bruh, if you gotta spread a rumor that the n—- f—ing your wife got AIDS, you burnt out, bro. Wrap it up. It’s over.”

Kanye West recently slammed Pete Davidson in new song ‘Eazy’

The Donda rapper has publicly threatened Davidson with violence before. On Jan. 15, West released a new song titled “Eazy.” He drops the comedian’s name in a line where he says he could “beat” the comedian’s “ass.”

West referenced a nearly fatal car accident he survived in 2002 before mentioning Davidson. He raps, “God saved me from that crash/Just so I can beat Pete Davidson’s ass.”

A woman’s voice asks, “Who?” right after West says Davidson’s name, implying that the comedian is unrecognizable and irrelevant. 

The rapper’s new song came out while he was under investigation for battery following an incident where he admitted to punching a man who asked for an autograph. 

There is no evidence to suggest that the ‘Saturday Night Live’ star has AIDS, but he does have Crohn’s disease

There is no reason to believe that any of Kanye West’s claims about Pete Davidson are true. While there isn’t any evidence that the comedian has AIDS, he has spoken publicly about his experience with Crohn’s disease. 

Davidson opened up about the autoimmune disorder in 2016. “I got Crohn’s disease when I was 17 or 18,” he said (via People). “My stomach would be in pain all day and I wouldn’t be able to eat … I’m sick, I have Crohn’s … so it sucks.”

After Barstool Sports made fun of the pigmentation around Davidson’s eyes by calling them “butthole eyes,” the comedian’s former fiancée, Ariana Grande, came to his defense by mentioning his disease. 

“Y’all do kno this man has an auto immune disease …… right?” she tweeted. “….. like you do understand what you’re doing when u do this right ? jus wanna make sure.”

Davidson has also made self-deprecating jokes about health. “I got engaged and no one could believe it, and I can’t believe it, and yeah, I get it,” he joked on an episode of SNL. “She’s the number-one pop star in the world and I’m that guy from SNL that everyone thinks is in desperate need of more blood.”
