*“Saturday Night Live” star Pete Davidson says he might not be alive today if it weren’t for his friend, rapper Kid Cudi.
“[Kid] Cudi’s the best of all. He saved my life. I would’ve killed myself if I didn’t have Kid Cudi,” Davidson, 22, told Power 105.1’s Breakfast Club on Tuesday.
He added, “I would’ve killed myself. Absolutely, 100 percent. If you’re 25 and under, I believe 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 (real name Scott Mescudi), 32, announced that he was in rehab to deal with depression, anxiety and suicidal urges.
“It’s kind of comforting to know your hero goes through the same stuff you do,” he said. “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.”
“I texted with him last Monday, and he’s in really good spirits,” Davidson added. “I think I might go see him next week. But he’s in a good place.”
