He also has borderline personality disorder.
In addition to Crohn's disease, Pete was also diagnosed with borderline personality disorder, a mental illness that causes unstable mood and behaviors. When he began dating Ariana, many brought this up and tried to use it against him. He quickly took to his Instagram Stories to write, "Just because someone has a mental illness does not mean they can't be happy and in a relationship. It also doesn't mean that person makes the relationship toxic. I just think it's f*cked up to stigmatize people as crazy and say that they are unable to do stuff that anyone can do. It's not their fault and it's the wrong way for people to look at things."
