A celebrity couple we weren’t expecting? Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson… Though, actually, we probably shouldn’t be so surprised, as the pair did kiss (as part of a sketch) when Kim recently hosted Saturday Night Live. Anyway, the pair were spotted holding hands - ooh - at an amusement park over the weekend, with People running the photos as an exclusive. An insider tells the site that they’re only friends - who, you know, hold hands at theme parks - so we'll see if anything develops.
But a romance between the pair would make sense. The SNL comedian does have a long list of A-list girlfriends - and he’s been linked to Kate Beckinsale, Ariana Grande, Margaret Qualley and Kaia Gerber. (As somebody joked on Twitter, ‘[I’m] convinced dating Pete Davidson is like jury duty for celebs and most people will be called to do it at least once.’)
And dating so many beautiful women isn't the easiest job in the world, apparently. In 2019, Pete joked that he isn't sure he's got everyone's support over his love life. 'It’s not fair, Colin', Pete complained to fellow SNL star Colin Jost. 'You get to date a famous woman and everyone’s delighted, but when I do it the world wants to punch me in the throat. What’d I do?'
Anyway, here's a look back at Pete's very famous dating history...
Pete Davidson's Relationship Timeline
Pete and Cazzie - the daughter of actor Larry David - dated for two years, from May 2016 - May 2018. Cazzie touched upon the split, and Pete dating Ariana Grande shortly afterwards, in her book No One Asked For This, writing that she was 'screaming in agony' when Pete started to date Ariana.
Who can forget Ariana Grande and Pete's whirlwind engagement? (She even included the song pete davidson on her album, Sweetener.) They engaged shortly after their first date in May 2018, but they split five months later.
Kate Beckinsale and Pete were first spotted getting cosy in 2019, but the internet was really set alight following photos of them kissing while they were watching a hockey match. Later, following their split, Pete said Kate was f**king hysterical, really, really funnyu2026she's really cool' so we're guessing they split on good terms.
Pete's relationship with Margaret Qualley - the daughter of actress Andie MacDowell - only lasted a couple of months. The pair were photographed holding hands in September 2019, but had split by the following month.
Kaia Gerber - the daughter of Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber - dated Pete for a few months in late 2019 and early 2020. At the time, he was 26 and. she was 19. Later, in a Vogue interview, Kaia said she ended up dating 'older people' as that was who she was hanging around with in the fashion industry. The model added, 'I got put in situations where one day I'd wake up and be like, How did I get here? I have no idea what I'm doing, and I need help.'
The Bridgerton actress and Pete were together from February 2021 for five months. They were even spotted together courtside at Wimbledon, the ultimate sign of celebrity PDA.
The First Lady of reality TV - Kim Kardashian - and Pete were spotted holding hands on a rollercoaster in October 2021. Insiders are saying they're just friends, but we'll wait and see...
