Pete Davidson Says He ‘Secretly Hopes’ Kanye West ‘Pulls a Mrs. Doubtfire’

Kanye West is giving Pete Davidson plenty of new material.
During his first stand-up show in three years at “Netflix Is a Joke: The Festival” last month, Kim Kardashian’s new boyfriend opened up about his feud with Ye, even joking that he wishes he would pull a Mrs. Doubtfire.
“Does anybody else secretly hope that, like, Kanye pulls like a Mrs. Doubtfire?” he asked the crowd at the Fonda Theatre. “I come home one day and they’re like, this is the new housekeeper. And, he’s like, ‘What’s up fam?’”
In the 1993 comedy, Robin Williams stars as a divorced husband who dresses up as a female housekeeper to get back into his family’s home and see their kids.
Davidson also joked about the time Ye allegedly claimed Davidson had AIDS. “Kanye told me I had AIDS and he’s a genius so I was like, ‘Oh, f**k,’” he said. “I was like, I better call my doctor. The guy who made College Dropout thinks I have AIDS.”
Davidson believed the rumor and went to the doctor, only to confirm that he doesn’t have AIDS. His fellow comedian John Mulaney suggested that Davidson get back at Ye by spreading a rumor that the rapper has polio.
In newly-released footage from his comedy show, the “SNL” star also brought up his friendship with Jack Harlow. After Kanye featured the “First Class” rapper on DONDA 2, Davidson’s friends asked how it affected their friendship.
“He’s a rapper. That’s his field… It doesn’t hurt my feelings. It would hurt my feelings if I saw like Bill Burr at Sunday Service,” said Davidson, referring to his King of Staten Island co-star.
In the wake of his divorce from Kim, Ye repeatedly targeted Davidson on social media and depicted his kidnapping and burial in his “Eazy” video with The Game. But he has reportedly agreed to stop harassing his estranged wife and cyberbullying her boyfriend.
“Kanye has been laying low and focusing on healing. He is trying to disconnect from all the drama that happened between him and Kim,” a source told “ET.” “He is focused on taking care of himself, getting healthier, and removing himself from all the craziness. He cares deeply about his family and kids. They are his number one priority and he’s working on himself.”
