“He went to pick me up and he couldn’t, so he just started to slowly tilt back.”
MGK and Pete’s endearingly ludicrous BFF dynamic legitimately took center stage during the rapper’s guest appearance on Saturday Night Live in January. As credits rolled, MGK squatted down in an ostensible effort to lift Pete off the ground, but both stars ended up tumbling off the edge of the platform.
Nine months after the incident, Pete explained exactly what went down during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon yesterday.
Needless to say, the story involved some pretty personal details about his friend, and the injury that preceded his onstage fall.
“He couldn’t walk or sit. He had a tushie pillow,” the comedian continued, adding that it was “really cool” to see a guy who looks and acts like MGK “just put a little tushie pillow down and sit.”
“It’s just like, Megan Fox is right there and he’s sitting on his little tushie pillow.”
As for the tumble: “He got really excited and he went to pick me up, and he forgot he had a bruised coccyx…So he went to pick me up and he couldn’t go up, so he just started to slowly tilt back.”
Pete remembered the accident happening slowly. “It was such a slow fall, we had time for him to go, ‘Oh no!'”
