Comedian Pete Davidson found himself in an unexpected spotlight once again, but this time not for his dating history. Leaving his comedy show at The Wiltern in Los Angeles on Saturday night, the Saturday Night Live alum encountered a fender-bender that left his vehicle with noticeable scrape marks.
After hosting an afterparty post his stand-up gig, Davidson made an exit around 10 p.m. According to an eyewitness, the mishap occurred when he inadvertently swiped his car against a wall while departing from the venue. Exclusive photos obtained by Page Six reveal Davidson in the driver’s seat of a black GMC SUV. Accompanying him was another individual in the passenger seat and three others in the back.
The images highlight scrape marks along one side of the vehicle, extending from the middle door to the back wheel. Observers at the scene reportedly didn’t realize it was Davidson until he emerged from the car, prompting a surprised reaction from onlookers who recognized the comedian. Fans, upon discovering the identity of the driver, reportedly exclaimed, “Oh s–t, that was Pete!”
Notably, other celebrities like Machine Gun Kelly and Ruby Rose were reported to be at the event, but they had left before Davidson, avoiding any connection with the mishap.
This incident follows Davidson’s entry into an 18-month diversion program in July, a consequence of a reckless driving charge. While his comedy has garnered attention, this time, it’s the aftermath of an unintended scrape that’s drawing eyes to the comedic star.
