Hectic: The comedian and actor had been through a tough time in his personal life, including the scary car accident in Beverly Hills, while maintaining a busy schedule shooting commercials, several movies and starting a new romance with Chase Sui Wonders, 27.
He has also just settled his legal issues related to that frightening accident in Beverly Hills, which led to him being charged with a misdemeanor reckless driving.
Police say Davidson was driving a Mercedes, with Wonders in the passenger seat, in March when he lost control of the car, jumped the curb, pulled out a fire hydrant, then slammed into it the side of a house.
Investigators did not suspect drugs or alcohol played a role in the crash, so he was not arrested.

In response, the King of Staten Island star left him a phone message, in which he explained how severely allergic he was to most other breeds of dogs, but then told Nachminovitc, “Fuck you. and suck my dick.”
In the end, Davidson issued an apology for his rude voicemail rant.

And at the end of 2018, he also had family, friends and even fans worried when he shared suicidal thoughts online, leading the New York Police Department to do a medical checkup on him. .
At this point, Davison has not publicly announced if he will be booking any more stand-up shows in the near future.
