Pete Davidson

LOS ANGELES — Actors Pete Davidson and Chase Sui Wonders were involved in a single-car crash over the weekend in Beverly Hills, but both were uninjured, according to reports.

Officers responded to calls about a crash at 11:12 p.m. Saturday in a residential area of Beverly Hills near the intersection of Rodeo Drive and Elevado Avenue, Lt. Reginald Evans, a Beverly Hills police spokesperson, said.

Officers found a wrecked dark-colored four-door Mercedes-Benz and a damaged city fire hydrant, Evans said. There were no injuries in the crash and no arrests made.

Police declined to name the vehicle’s occupants, but TMZ, which first reported the collision, and New York Post reported the actors’ involvement.

As investigators worked to determine the cause of the crash, Evans said they believe speed may have been a factor.

Representatives for Davidson and Wonders did not immediately respond to The Times’ requests for comment.

Water from the busted fire hydrant shot into the air, the geyser-like flow rising higher than a nearby street light, according to footage from the scene. Fire crews scrambled to shut off the hydrant as the water rained down on them.

TMZ obtained photos from the scene of the crash that show damage to the side of a house. A trail of tire marks along the lawn of the house leads to cracked wooden panels and shredded shrubs.

Davidson and Wonders, who starred together in the 2022 comedy horror film “Bodies Bodies Bodies,” have been spotted together at various public outings in recent months, including last month at the Daytona 500 NASCAR race in Florida and the NFL Pro Bowl in Hawaii. However, neither has publicly confirmed they are dating.

Davidson had previously been attached to model and author Emily Ratajkowski who he was rumored to be dating late last year after he broke up his storied relationship with Kim Kardashian West.

Wonders broke out as a member of the cast on HBO high school drama “Generation,” which was canceled after its first season in 2021. She stars in the forthcoming Apple TV+ crime drama “City of Fire,” an adaptation of Garth Risk Hallberg’s 2015 novel of the same name.


Bruce Willis and Emma Heming Willis

Emma Heming Willis made a plea Saturday to paparazzi who chase down her husband, actor Bruce Willis, who was recently diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia.

In an effort to raise “awareness around dementia,” Heming Willis posted a video on Instagram asking photographers and videographers to stop shouting at the “Die Hard” star while he’s spending time with loved ones in public. Willis’ family revealed in February that the actor’s “condition has progressed” since he was diagnosed last spring with aphasia — “just one symptom of the disease Bruce faces.”

“This one is going out to the photographers and the video people that are trying to get those exclusives of my husband out and about,” Heming Willis said in her Instagram message.

“Just keep your space. I know this is your job, but ... please don’t be yelling at my husband and asking him how he’s doing or whatever ... just don’t do it, OK? Give him his space, allow for our family — or whoever’s with him that day — to be able to get him from point A to point B safely. That’s my PSA.”

Heming Willis’ remarks were provoked by recent headlines and a video of her husband “getting some coffee with some friends that did a stand-up job with protecting him.”

“If you are someone that is looking after someone with dementia, you know how difficult and stressful it can be to get someone out into the world and to navigate them safely,” Heming Willis said. “Even just to get a cup of coffee.”

In March 2022, Willis’ family announced that the 67-year-old action hero would be “stepping away” from his acting career while living with aphasia, a neurological disorder that affects a person’s ability to understand and communicate with others. Last month, the family had “a more specific diagnosis” to impart: FTD.

“Bruce always believed in using his voice in the world to help others, and to raise awareness about important issues both publicly and privately,” the family said.

“We know in our hearts that — if he could today — he would want to respond by bringing global attention and a connectedness with those who are also dealing with this debilitating disease and how it impacts so many individuals and their families.”


One person died and nine others were injured when a crowd surged after a concert in Rochester, New York, according to police, who said Monday there’s no evidence gunfire preceded the stampede.

The chaos at the Main Street Armory ramped up shortly after 11 p.m. Sunday following a show headlined by the rapper GloRilla.

“As people began to exit, the crowd began to surge and rush toward the exit. There are some reports that shots were heard, causing the crowd to panic, but that has not been confirmed,” Rochester Police Chief David M. Smith said during a news conference Monday.

“We do not have any evidence of gunshots being fired or of anyone being shot or stabbed at the scene,” he said.

A woman died after being taken to nearby Strong Hospital, police said. Two other women were hospitalized in critical condition and seven other victims suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

“Preliminary reports from people at the scene indicate that these injuries were caused from people being trampled,” said Smith, who said the investigation is in its “very early” stages.

Investigators are also looking into reports that the crowd’s size and pepper spray caused the stampede. Authorities are speaking with concertgoers and security staffers to determine what happened and to hold accountable those responsible, officials said.

It’s unclear how many people attended the concert at Main Street Armory, which Smith says has a capacity of around 5,000.

“My heart, Rochester’s heart and prayers go out to the victim that passed away last night and those that are fighting for their life,” Rochester Mayor Malik Evans said Monday. “This is a tragedy of epic proportions and is something that all of us who love concerts worry about.”

GloRilla, whose real name is Gloria Woods, is known for songs such as “Tomorrow,” which has a remix featuring Cardi B that reached No. 9 on the U.S. singles chart.

“Praying everybody is ok,” GloRilla, 23, tweeted early Monday.
