Pete Davidson loses cool at Riff Raff set
As per In Touch's report, Davidson had an outburst on the set of his movie Riff Raff after he caught a paparazzo tailing him at his work. A source told the outlet that a lone photographer had been stalking the New Jersey set for hours, hoping to get a glimpse of Pete and his co-stars, Bill Murray and Ed Harris. While he's no stranger to the kind of attention, the 30-year-old apparently grew irritated because the paparazzo wouldn't leave the set, reports aceshowbiz.com.
That's when Davidson allegedly tried to take matters into his own hands. He reportedly lost his temper and tried to confront the photographer who wouldn't budge despite initial warnings. He was said to be so furious that several members of the production crew were forced to restrain him.
The star of The King of Staten Island eventually retreated to his trailer. But instead of calming himself down, the funnyman apparently expressed his anger by trashing the trailer. "He's a good guy and everyone likes him," said the source, defending Pete. "He's obviously going through something right now and people are worried about him," the source added.

The report about the comedian’s alleged on-set outburst comes just days after he abruptly canceled a slew of shows on his comedy tour. He was supposed to perform at Beacon Theater on the weekend, but he decided to call them off due to “unforeseen circumstances.”
The venue announced the cancellation just two hours before the schedule. "Please be advised that the Pete Davidson Live performances scheduled to take place at the Beacon Theatre on Friday, December 22 and Saturday, December 23 have been cancelled," read an email sent to ticketholders.
