David, the child of Curb Your Enthusiasm‘s Larry David, exposed a lot about her two-and-a-half year love with Davidson in her 2020 book of essays, No One Asked For This The couple initially started dating in 2016, with David composing that they were “kindred spirits.” But she confessed Davidson’s psychological health battles had actually taken a toll on her.
“Previously, self-harm and suicide threats had come about from trivial circumstances, incidents that would go from 0 to 100, which were so momentarily urgent, like the last minute of an escape room before the time goes off, except I’m the only one in the room and all the clues are tricks,” she remembered. “Once he was back in a good headspace, I wouldn’t be able to bring myself to do it either; I was too mentally exhausted to do anything besides emotionally recover from the chaos of the week before.”
After she ended their relationship while on a household journey in 2018, David tried to fix up with Davidson in a minute of weak point. But she was surprised when he later on sent her a text to expose he had actually proceeded.
Two days later on, she opened Instagram to see her ex had “uploaded a photo of himself with his hand covering his face to show off his new finger tattoos,” she composed. “My name, which had been written in cursive across his ring finger, was now covered over with black ink.”
