Comedian and Saturday Night Live alum Pete Davidson hasn't always been open about every relationship. But in a candid interview with Charlamagne Tha God back in 2020, the Staten Island native discussed his past romances and confessed how much they tend to overshadow his professional life. Still, he mentioned that he felt "very fortunate and lucky" to have dated "really wonderful, beautiful, cool, talented women.”
So, who are Pete Davidson's famous exes? And who is he dating now? Let's dive in...
Pete dated Carly Aquilino from 2014 to 2015.
This was before Pete rose to fame, so the exact timeline of their relationship is unclear. However, we do know that they were close when they co-starred on MTV's Guy Code and Girl Code. He and Carly knew each other since 2013, so it's possible that their romance started even earlier. But unfortunately, the comedians split up in 2015.
Despite the split, it turns out that they're still on good terms. Pete told Charlamagne in his 2020 interview: "We're cool friends. We actually hang out all the time ... She's honestly one of the coolest chicks I've ever met."
Pete dated Cazzie David for two years.
After his split from Carly, Pete moved on to Cazzie, the creator of the web series Eighty-Sixed. The happy couple made several public appearances together and sang each other's praises in their interviews. For instance, Pete once noted that she played an important role in helping him stay sober and Cazzie revealed that her father — the legendary Larry David — approved of him.
She said: "He really loves that I'm dating a comedian. He loves it because he feels like the only people he can talk to are people who also make jokes. It worked out very well."
Sadly, they broke up in 2018. He revealed in his interview on Open Late with Peter Rosenberg: “We’re not together anymore."
Pete got engaged to Ariana Grande in June 2018, just weeks after they started dating.
Not long after his split from Cazzie, Pete started to date Ariana Grande, who had also recently split from late rapper Mac Miller. Their relationship seemed to progress at the speed of light, because they went from hanging out and being flirty on social media to sporting matching tattoos and getting engaged in a matter of weeks. This was only a few days after they made their relationship Instagram official.
Pete announced the news a few weeks after Ariana was spotted with an engagement ring. On June 20, 2018, while on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, he said: "I feel like I won a contest. So sick."
But their engagement didn't last for long. The singer and the comic called it off after four months and split up in October 2018. Then in November, Ariana released her breakup anthem "Thank U, Next," which, of course, mentioned Pete (and the rest of her famous exes). Still, both she and Pete claimed that they had no hard feelings toward each other.
On SNL, Pete shared: “I know some of you are curious about the breakup, but the truth is, it’s nobody’s business and sometimes things just don’t work out, and that’s OK. She’s a wonderful, strong person and I genuinely wish her all the happiness in the world."
Pete dated Kate Beckinsale in 2019.
They were seen flirting and sticking close to each other at Netflix’s Golden Globes afterparty in January 2019, which was more than enough to spark new dating rumors. But Pete and Kate didn't confirm the relationship until they were seen having a full make-out session during a March 2019 Rangers game in New York.
Kate mentioned that being with Pete was worth having to deal with the extra spotlight. Meanwhile, Pete had to address people's concerns about their 20-year age difference. He said: "Apparently people have a crazy fascination with our age difference. But it doesn't really bother us."
Just four months after they started dating, it was reported that he and the actress called it quits, although neither of them publicly confirmed the news.
Pete reportedly also had a fling Margaret Qualley in 2019.
Us Weekly revealed that the comic was already seeing someone else by August of 2019. He reportedly started dating Once Upon a Time in Hollywood actress Margaret Qualley and a source claimed: "They’ve been seeing each other for a couple of months and Margaret is really excited about him."
That same month, they were seen sitting near each other at the Venice Film Festival.
Although neither of them confirmed that they were in a relationship, they were spotted holding hands in September 2019, while they were in Venice. Also, Margaret’s mom, Andie MacDowell, revealed that her daughter and Pete had “a beautiful relationship."
Sadly, the couple broke up that October.
Pete then started dating Kaia Gerber in 2019.
About five seconds after his breakup with Margaret, Pete was romantically linked to model and actress Kaia Gerber in October 2019. One source revealed that they were trying to keep a "low profile," but they weren't too successful. They were actually spotted holding hands on a few occasions and were seen making out during their getaway in Miami. However, their whirlwind romance came to an end in January 2020.
Pete later reflected in his 2020 interview with Charlamagne The God: "She’s very young, and I’m f--king going through a lot and it was before I went to rehab. It’s just like, she should be having fun. She shouldn’t have to worry about some dude that just has issues and s--t. She should be enjoying her work.”
Pete was caught getting cozy with Phoebe Dynevor in 2021.
The Bridgerton star and Pete reportedly dated from around April to August 2021, according to Us Weekly. A source told the outlet the English actress and the New York–based comedian were "happy with each other." They made their first public appearance together at Wimbeldon in London in July 2021.
But sadly, things didn't last. A source told E! News after Phoebe and Pete's breakup: "The long distance made it very difficult. They had fun, but it wasn't sustainable being so far apart. It was great while it lasted, but they both agreed it was best to move on."
Pete dated Kim Kardashian for nine months from 2021 to 2022.
In a relationship that shocked the world and caused mass Hollywood chaos, Pete started dating reality star Kim Kardashian in October 2021 until their relationship ended in August 2022. While the duo initially had mutual friends, it was Kim's appearance on Saturday Night Live in October that cemented their relationship potential.
Sadly, their relationship came to an end by August, but not after several shared red0carpet moments that included the White House Correspondents' Dinner and the Met Gala. A source told E! News after their breakup that long distance played a role, but that the two had "a lot of love and respect for each other."
Pete briefly dated model Emily Ratajkowski in 2022.
Following his split from Kim and Emily's own divorce from husband Sebastian Bear-McClard, it appears that they found each other. People reported in November 2022 that the duo were "seeing each other" following reports from gossip outlet Deux Moi where they were spotted on a date in New York City in October 2022.
But by December, it was reported that the two were already done. A source told Page Six at the time that "their fling [had] moved into the friend zone,” which was “fine with both of them.”
Pete had already been seen out and about with his Bodies Bodies Bodies co-star Chase Sui Wonders by that point (more on that in a moment!), and Emily had been seen with artist Jack Greer.
Pete dated his co-star Chase Sui Wonders from December 2022 to August 2023.
Pete met actress Chase on the set of their slasher flick Bodies Bodies Bodies in March 2022 and were first linked together in December 2022 when they were seen at a Rangers game. In April 2023, he told Entertainment Tonight: "She's the best. She's the best actress. She's gonna crush. She's got a lot of cool stuff going." But by August, it was reported that the two were over.
Pete is now dating 'Outer Banks' star Madelyn Cline, whom he began seeing in September 2023.
Sources told People that Pete and Madelyn began dating in late September 2023. Madelyn was seen that month attending one of Pete's stand-up gigs in Vegas, and they were both seen at the SNL after-party following his hosting gig in October 2023.
In September, a source told Us: “Madelyn and Pete have been dating for several weeks but have grown close fairly quickly.” The two were reported to have already shared a "strong bond."
