Davidson has been open about his mental health battle in the past and has now revealed that Saget was crucial in getting him help.
“When I was younger and several times throughout our friendship he helped me get through some rough mental health stuff,” Davidson wrote.
“He stayed on the phone with my mom for hours trying to help in any way he can — connecting us with doctors and new things we can try.”
“He would check in on me and make sure I was okay,” Davidson said. “I love you, Bob. It was an honour to know you. Thank you for your kindness and friendship. My condolences to the family.”
Saget was found dead at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando on Sunday. He was 65. The circumstances around his death are still unclear but authorities say “no signs of foul play or drug use” were found.
His family released a statement after his death to ET Canada.
“We are devastated to confirm that our beloved Bob passed away today. He was everything to us and we want you to know how much he loved his fans, performing live and bringing people from all walks of life together with laughter,” they said.
“Though we ask for privacy at this time, we invite you to join us in remembering the love and laughter that Bob brought to the world.”
