SNL's Pete Davidson Was Once Suicidal, Says Kid Cudi Saved Him

Saturday Night Live star Pete Davidson is opening up about his past suicidal thoughts and how Kid Cudi‘s 2009 album Man on the Moon saved him when he was a teenager.

“Cudi’s the best of all. He saved my life. I would’ve killed myself if I didn’t have Kid Cudi,” the 22-year-old comedian told The Breakfast Club radio show on Tuesday (October 25) (via Us Weekly). “I would’ve killed myself. Absolutely 100 percent. I truly believe if Man on the Moon didn’t come out, I wouldn’t be here.”

Kid Cudi recently checked himself into a treatment program for suicidal thoughts.

“It’s kind of comforting to know your hero goes through the same stuff you do. 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,” Pete said, adding that they are in communication. “I texted with him last Monday, and he’s in really good spirits. I think I might go see him next week. But he’s in a good place.”
