Celebrities with BPD: Exploring the traumatic life of Pete Davidson

Celebrities with BPD: Exploring the traumatic life of Pete Davidson

It’s rare for celebrities to acknowledge having a BPD. Given the stigma that exists surrounding the label, who can blame them? American comedian and actor Pete Davidson has always been open about his struggles with his emotions and the serious trauma he’s endured throughout his life – he has said he was “in and out” of inpatient treatment facilities since the age of nine. This progressed into troubling episodes of intense emotions, explosions of rage, dissociation, depression, and marijuana addiction. All of this led up to a personal rock-bottom that ended in a borderline personality disorder diagnosis in 2017.

In this episode (part one of two), I’ll provide the in-depth profile on Pete that the BPD community has always wanted and needed to hear. Together, we’ll analyze interviews he’s given since his diagnosis as well as some online biographical pieces.
