Kanye West declared war on Pete Davidson, slamming him yet again in a new contentious interview.

In the midst of the backlash over his controversial statements, West engaged in another contentious interview in which he slammed Davidson.

The “Jesus Is King” rapper appeared on the “Drink Champs” podcast recently and accused Kardashian’s ex-boyfriend of being a heroin addict. He chastised the 78 media outlets that allegedly labeled him an abuser when all he wanted was to get “that heroin addict” away from his children.

West told N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN:

“The 78 media outlets that called me an abuser when I was tryna get that heroin addict away from my kids that was tattooing my kids’ names on him, Skete, Pete Davidson…”

It wasn’t the first time he made fun of the comedian.

In March, he released a music video for his song “Eazy,” which featured Davidson as a Claymation character. He defended himself, claiming that it was simply art and an expression of free speech.

He also mocked Davidson in an Instagram post that has since been deleted, with the words “SKETE DAVIDSON DEAD AT AGE 28.”

A source told PEOPLE in August that the former “Saturday Night Live” star sought help after being harassed by West.

It was revealed that the 28-year-old underwent trauma therapy due to the threatening posts made by the 45-year-old rapper while dating Kardashian.

The source said:

“The attention and negativity coming from Kanye and his antics is a trigger for [Pete], and he’s had to seek out help. [He] has no regrets for dating Kim and wants it to be made very clear that she’s been nothing but supportive of him throughout their relationship.”

He reportedly wanted to focus on his career after his breakup with the “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star.

Meanwhile, according to recent reports, Davidson has been texting Kardashian again amid West’s recent controversies. He discovered that he still cares about her as a person.

Furthermore, he appears curious about how she is doing after their divorce.

On the other hand, Kardashian stated that she intends to see another man and date again as soon as the opportunity arises. However, a second source clarified that the reality TV star wishes to rediscover love when the time is right.
