Pete Davidson is probably the most talked-about Saturday Night Live (SNL) cast member. The comedian joined SNL when he was just 20 years old. Apart from his ability to crack funny jokes that leave his audiences gasping for air, Pete is also famous for one other thing – his impressive lineup of ex-girlfriends. He has been linked with some of America’s most beautiful and successful women, including Kate Beckinsdale, Ariana Grande, and quite recently, Kim Kardashian.

As a matter of fact, all that’s left for Pete now is, maybe, the Queen of England. Davidson doesn’t age discriminate and has been spotted with older women as well as the regular twenty-something-year-olds. So, beginning with his current relationship, here are all the women Pete Davidson has been linked to and how long they stayed together.

Kim Kardashian might be the most famous and most recognizable television personality on earth. The wealthy socialite infamously became rich and famous off of a leaked sex tape back in 2002. The backlash in the aftermath should have terminated her rising career as a fashion stylist, but Kim K has long proven that she is absolutely capable of cashing out on any situation – no matter how messy.

Born in the city of Los Angeles to lawyer Robert Kardashian and businesswoman Kris Jenner, she comes from a family of famous sisters. Nearly twenty years later, she is almost a billionaire and is the founder of the KKW Beauty and KKW Fragrance empires. She is also a mother of four and she had all her kids with rapper ex-husband, Kanye West. All these bring us to how Pete won the affections of one of the richest women in the world.

In early October 2021, Kim Kardashian hosted the Saturday Night Live show. During a Jasmine and Aladdin sketch, she cosplayed the Disney princess, Jasmine, while Pete played Aladdin. At some point, they shared a kiss onstage, sparking serious dating rumors on the internet. A few weeks later, precisely on the 30th of October 2021, they were seen holding hands during a roller coaster drop at Knott’s Berry Farm in photos exclusively obtained by People.

An inside source claimed they were both just “friends”, but the pictures making the rounds on the internet said an entirely different thing, which people could easily interpret. By the following day, Twitter was abuzz with comments about the duo as seen below:

Pete and Kim’s Relationship Was Confirmed On Instagram

On the 17th of November 2021, everyone got the confirmation they were waiting for following a picture posted on Instagram by American rapper William Jonathan Drayton Jr., popularly known as Flavor Flav. This was how it happened… Pete Davidson spent his birthday weekend with Kim and along the line, the rapper came around to celebrate him and in the spirit of celebration, they took some pictures, which Flavor Flave posted on his Instagram. This was how Kim and Pete’s relationship became Instagram official as they were seen dressed in matching PJs.

Two days later, a source close to both Kim and Pete confirmed that things were serious between them. Speaking to ET Online, the source said that the duo was connecting on a deeper level. The source further explained that Pete is a romantic and does everything he can to make Kim feel special. On the other hand, “Kim thinks Pete is hysterical and he’s constantly making her laugh, but they also have been connecting on a deeper level,” the source explained.

Unsurprisingly, their relationship did not make it beyond 2022, as Davidson has a history of short-spanned romances.

Carly Aquilino and Pete Davidson (2015)

  • Carly Aquilino’s Date of Birth: November 18, 1990
  • Place of Birth: New York
  • Age: 33 Years Old
  • Occupation: Stand-up Comedian

American comedian Carly Aquilino was born on Long Island in New York. This comedian has also been an actress, a television show host, and a reality TV personality. Having discovered her knack for telling jokes after recovering from a spinal injury when she was younger, Aquilino started by doing short comedy skits and was hired by the Carolines Comedy Club.

She later appeared on ‘Girl Code Live’, a show which she began hosting in 2019 after being a main cast member for years. Currently, she seems to be quite busy – Carly runs a podcast and regularly goes viral on TikTok because of her insanely hilarious and creative skits.

Carly and Pete have a lot in common and so it isn’t too difficult to figure out why they may have dated. For one, they are both into comedy. Also, Pete appeared on the male version of ‘Girl Code’, a show called ‘Guy Code’. It might also have been the fact that both of them are Island natives as Pete was born on Staten Island.

Whatever the case might have been, the then 22-year-old Pete was certainly intrigued and decided to go for it. They dated around 2015, according to multiple reports, but things were never too serious for the pair. They split up shortly after, but still remained friends. It is believed that they just outgrew the relationship, and mutually decided to move on.

In fact, in an Instagram comment, she congratulated him jokingly in 2018 after he announced his engagement to pop singer Ariana Grande saying, “I know I’m the nine-billionth person to text you today about this, but… I can’t”. Aquilino also made an appearance in Pete Davidson’s short movie titled, ‘The King of Staten Island’ in 2020.

Cazzie David and Pete Davidson (2016 – 2018)

  • Cazzie David’s Date of Birth: May 10, 1994
  • Place of Birth: Los Angeles, USA
  • Age: 30 Years Old
  • Occupation: Writer, Actress, Producer

Cazzie David’s relationship with Davidson was his first serious public one and it ended on quite a controversial note. Cazzie was born in 1994 on May 10, to comedian Larry David and activist, Laurie David. After graduating college in 2015, she almost immediately landed her first job as a Production Assistant on the show, ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’. By the time she was 26, she had already run her own web series titled ‘Eighty-Sixed’, a show that Pete himself had made an appearance on.

The relationship between the duo was called the David-Davidson era by bloggers and the likes, as a play on their last names. They began seeing each other around May 2016 and dated all through till 2018. While together, Davidson demonstrated his commitment to her by getting two tattoos of her – her name and her face – and even traveling across states on a whim to assist her. It was a perfect relationship, or so it seemed.

Unfortunately, it all came crashing in mid-2018 when Cazzie reportedly said that Pete had broken up with her via text. Even more shocking was the fact that she found out the next day on Instagram that he had moved on with Ariana and that he had already covered the tattoos on his arm that were inspired by her. According to Cazzie herself, she was the one who first asked for a break, but she quickly tried to change her mind. However, by then it was too late. It also appears that both of them were dealing with mental health issues, and finally had to move on.

Dealing With The Heartbreak Was Tough For Cazzie But Life Goes On

Lossing a relationship that you have invested about two and half years into would leave anyone shattered and that was the case with Cazzie. Speaking with the Los Angeles Times in November 2020, she revealed that she had to fly to Boston with her dad, Larry David, for her younger sister’s college graduation just after she found out about Pete and Ariana. According to her, she was shaking without control in her dad’s arms all through the flight.

As soon as they got to their hotel room, she huddled in the bathroom to let her emotions out. She cried, smoked marijuana, and slept off, only to wake up screaming in pain. Her father did all he could to get her out of the rut, even reminding her that her ancestors survived the holocaust.

Cazzie David also told the magazine that fans of Ariana Grande harassed her with nasty messages via social media, hurling insults at her and comparing her with the singer. She also said she could not help imagining Davidson and the pop star falling in love immediately, “accompanied by audio of her baby voice whispering sweet nothings in his ear, dubbed over his past declarations of love and trust to me.”

While Cazzie was still nursing her broken heart, Pete publicly confirmed his breakup with her on May 16, 2018, on an episode of Complex’s Open Late With Peter Rosenberg. Afterward, he said that “[Cazzie was a] very talented girl, she’ll be great and she’ll be fine. Yeah, I think she’ll be OK.” It turns out he was right as they remain good friends, with Cazzie admitting that his “friendship means the world” to her.

Cazzie is currently busy with the ‘Umbrella Academy’ show and is slated to play the role of Jayme, in the upcoming season of the popular Netflix series.

Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson (2018)

  • Age: 30 Years Old

Pete and Ariana’s relationship was the most talked-about relationship of 2018. At the time, she was also the most famous woman he had ever been with, and the best part of everything about this duo was the unexpected nature of the coupling. Meanwhile, Ariana Grande has not always been a famous singer. She joined Broadway in 2008 when she was 15 years old, and this paved the way for her to land major acting roles on Nickelodeon.

Her music career took off in 2011, but she didn’t release her first studio album until 2013. All her albums enjoyed tremendous success, and in 2016 Grande was listed as one of Times’ ‘100 most influential people in the world’. So Ariana Grande is a pretty big deal, with billions of YouTube views worldwide, multiple AMAs, VMAs, and Grammy Awards to her name. How then was Pete able to land such a big fish?

The two of them met almost four years back, first in 2014 and then in 2016 when Grande hosted the SNL show. Ariana, however, revealed that although they weren’t friends and didn’t exchange numbers, she’d had a huge crush on him for years. That probably means that although they were both with other people at the time, the pair had it clearly coming for quite a while.

The Duo Started Dating 4 Years After Their First Meeting

According to various reports, Grande and Davidson began seeing each other in May 2018. The SNL host and his new heartthrob were both dealing with fallouts of past relationships. Pete had just broken up with Cazzie, as previously mentioned, while Ariana was dealing with the aftermath of her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller’s death. The two seemed to find solace in each other and the romance progressed at hurricane speed.

In the first two weeks that they were together, Pete Davidson got two tattoos dedicated to his girlfriend, after covering the previous Cazzie-David-themed ones. Soon they moved in together and by the next month, they were engaged. Things flamed out as quickly as they started, however, and by October 2018, they had called off their engagement, and they were officially over.

The superstar singer allegedly called the relationship “a distraction”, stating it was “fun, frivolous, insane and highly realistic”. Pete Davidson replied by covering up the Grande-tattoos and declaring their relationship “fair game” for his comedy contents.

Kate Beckinsale Dated Pete Davidson For Just 4 Months (January 2019 – April 2019)

  • Kate Beckinsale’s Date of Birth: July 26, 1973
  • Place of Birth: Chiswick, London, United Kingdom
  • Age: 50 Years Old
  • Occupation: Actress

The English actress is definitely one of the most recognized screen beauties of her age. She was born in London to the late Richard Beckinsale and Judy Loe, both of whom are well-known actors. Growing up, Kate had a flair for writing fiction and poetry and during college at Oxford, she gunned to be a journalist. She ended up dropping out of school eventually, all in a bid to focus on an acting career that seemed to be blooming.

Her major Hollywood fame came after a lead role in the war film ‘Pearl Harbor’ and after featuring in several blockbuster ‘Underworld’ action films, Kate is definitely up there when it comes to top-rated Hollywood veteran actresses. This was exactly why it shook the entertainment world yet again when she and Pete Davidson were rumored to be dating.

Apparently, they’d begun seeing each other in December 2018, mere weeks after Pete’s infamous split from Ariana Grande. One surprising fact about this particular couple was their age difference. They had an unbelievable 20-year age gap between them with Pete being a mere three years older than the actress’ daughter. They were publicly pictured together at hockey games, football games, and even at the January 2019 Golden Globes awards night.

It was definitely an unusual type of relationship, but like most of Pete’s entanglements, it fizzled out completely within weeks. Reports have it that Kate wasn’t too comfortable with the public attention which the relationship received and decided it was best for her and her children if it all came to an end. Poor Pete!

Margaret Qualley and Pete Davidson (2019)

  • Margaret Qualley’s Date of Birth: October 23, 1994
  • Place of Birth: Kalispell, Montana, USA
  • Age: 29 Years Old
  • Occupation: Ballet Dancer, Actress, Model

Margaret Qualley is probably the most low-key celebrity that Davidson has ever dated. The American ballerina and model is the daughter of famous actress Andie MacDowell and professional model, Paul Qualley. Margaret received classical ballet training as a young child but abandoned dancing as she got older for a modeling career. Apparently, that was short-lived as well, as she eventually took to acting – like her mother.

The “The Leftovers” actress linked up with SNL playboy Pete Davidson in August 2019. They were first seen together in Venice where Margaret was filming for ‘Seberg’, and they were with each other throughout the autumn season. They, however, broke up in October, after three months of dating.

Kaia Gerber and Pete Davidson (2019 – early 2020)

  • Kaia Gerber’s Date of Birth: September 3, 2001
  • Place of Birth: Los Angeles, California, USA
  • Age: 22 Years Old
  • Occupation: Fashion Model and Actress

Kaia is the daughter of the quintessential Cindy Crawford, one of the world’s most famous supermodels. Her father, Rande Gerber, was also a model but he later became a businessman. Kaia is among the leading top models of the present generation and has modeled for brands like Prada, Fendi, Moschino, and Max Mara.

The budding supermodel has not stopped at simply being a fabulous model, she has been sharpening her acting skills right from when she was young, playing Ruby in the popular TV show, American Horror Story. She is also the first 2000s-born-model to cover Vogue four times. Now it seems like Pete not only likes them famous, he also likes them to have famous parents. Think about all his exes with famous parents – Cazzie, Kate, Margaret, and now Kaia. Or maybe he might just have been in love for real this time.

Anyways the two dated between December 2019 and wrapped things up in January, right after unwrapping Christmas presents. Davidson said that they broke up because he thought Kaia was “too young” to have coped with his many issues. In all fairness to him, the model had just turned 19 at the time and was already killing it in the fashion world. It seemed he was not the only one that thought so; Kaia’s parents were also highly relieved when they learned their little fling ended.

Phoebe Dynevor and Pete Davidson (2021)

  • Phoebe Dynevor’s Date of Birth: April 17, 1995
  • Place of Birth: Trafford, United Kingdom
  • Age: 29 Years Old
  • Occupation: Actress

The British actress was born in the United Kingdom to actress Sally and Tim Dynevor. You might readily recall Phoebe from her portrayal as Daphne in the Netflix period fantasy drama, ‘Bridgerton’. In fact, Phoebe was the star of 2021 simply because of her role in the Shonda Rhimes-produced show. She was first seen together with Pete in March 2021 after an inside source confirmed that they had been spending time together.

In April, however, another source said that the relationship was not too serious. Pete himself confirmed his involvement with the ‘Bridgerton’ actress in mid-April, saying that she was his celebrity crush. The relationship ended just after five months together. Both of them insinuated that their split was due to distance, as Pete lived in the US, while Phoebe was based in England.

Is Pete Davidson Only Attracted to Older Women?

A lot of people have expressed their curiosity about Pete’s exact preferences – apart from being rich and beautiful that is. Apparently, the SNL star doesn’t seem to have a particular type. His tastes have ranged from older women to much younger ones down to those in the same age range as he.

Carly Aquilino is older than he is with just three years, which is such a far cry from the 20-year age difference between him and Kate Beckinsale, or the 13-year age gap between him and Kim Kardashian. The youngest woman he had been linked with is Kaia Gerber. Coincidentally, she was also one of his shortest relationships. The comedian himself has only responded by jokingly referring to himself as a “diamond in the trash”.
