Pete Davidson Dating History: From his popularity on Saturday Night Live to his active dating history, it appears that Pete Davidson has emerged as pop culture’s It guy. Davidson’s love history has been widely discussed on social media, whether it’s his suspected relationship with actress Julia Fox, who is Kanye West’s new girlfriend post-Kim Kardashian, or his prior whirlwind affair with pop sensation Ariana Grande. As Davidson has officially become Kardashian’s boyfriend, a look back at his former love relationships is in order.
Pete had a brief relationship with US actress and stand-up comedian Carly Aquilino in 2015. The duo appeared to split on amicable terms, and they later co-starred in the 2020 film The King of Staten Island, with Carly publicly thanking Pete for the job.
According to Us Weekly, Carly did appear to mock Pete’s engagement to Ariana Grande in 2018, posting a screenshot of a text message she received on the day of the announcement, saying, “I know I’m the 9 billionth person to text you today about this, but… I can’t,” and captioning it, “My day in a text message.”
Cazzie David, Larry David’s daughter and another female from the world of comedy, was Davidson’s first public long-term romance. Their romance began in May 2016 and ended in 2018, just before he began dating Ariana Grande. In her essay book “No One Asked For This,” David claimed mental health issues as the reason for their breakup in 2020.
Pete and Ariana Grande acknowledged their romance in May 2018, shortly after his separation with Cazzie, making it one of the comedian’s more public partnerships. Pete debuted two Ariana-inspired tattoos weeks later on 2 June, featuring the initials ‘AG’ on his hand and Ariana’s famed ‘Dangerous Woman’ bunny ears behind his ear.
Davidson and seasoned actress Kate Beckinsdale had a brief but beautiful romance in early 2019. Their love appeared to be validated by their frequent PDA, most notably during a New York Rangers game in March of that year. It was nearly a month later, in April.
Pete is believed to have been dating Maid actress Margaret Qualley in August 2019. Margaret’s mother, Andie MacDowell, spoke with PEOPLE in September about her daughter’s connection.
Following his breakup with Qualley, Davidson dated Cindy Crawford’s daughter Kaia Gerber. After Davidson’s self-admission to treatment in 2020, the relationship terminated.
Pete and Bridgerton actress Phoebe Dynevor were caught holding hands in Staffordshire in March 2021, sparking rumors of a romance. The couple didn’t make their first public appearance until July, when they were seen kissing, snuggling, and generally looking adorable in the stands at a Wimbledon event.
We’ve arrived at the present day of Davidson’s love life, with Kim Kardashian at the center. The couple’s love grew after they shared a kiss as Jasmine and Aladdin in an SNL spoof, much to the amazement of the general public. Though they rejected dating rumors, Davidson’s romantic Staten Island supper for her seemed to imply something more serious. Their romance was revealed in November 2021 and has since been continued, and we can only hope for a pleasant conclusion this time.
