Pete Davidson has received quite a bit of attention for his history of dating female celebrities. The actor and comedian rose to fame in the mid-2010s when he became a popular cast member on the legendary sketch comedy show, Saturday Night Live. Davidson joined the cast in during its 40th season in 2014. He spent the following 8 years on the show, during which time he became a household name. However, his fame was far more likely due to the women he dated during that period than his SNL tenure. Davidson’s dating roster reads like a who’s who of Hollywood it-girls. Still, he doesn’t think that his extensive list of past partners is all that bad.
In an interview on the Real Ones With Jon Bernthal podcast, Davidson opened up about his dating life. His list of exes, which includes the likes of Kim Kardashian and Ariana Grande, is something that many people take issue with for one reason or another. Davidson, however, finds the negative reactions confusing. During the podcast, he clarifies that he is “not on social media”. As such, he contends that he is not sliding into anyone’s DMs or trying to flex his relationships publicly for his own sake. According to Davidson, he’s met all of his exes at work. The relationships, he says, had a negative effect on his time working at SNL. “They’re making fun of you… and then you gotta walk out and do a sketch next and hit your mark,” Davidson said of the experience.

In 2018, Pete Davidson began dating one of the most famous pop stars in the world, Ariana Grande. She was not his first celebrity partner, but the 5 month relationship certainly put Davidson on the map in a way that he hadn’t been previously. The two were briefly engaged before they split. He then dated actress Kate Beckinsale in early 2019. Later that year, he had a short fling with actress Margaret Qualley. Shortly thereafter, it was reported that he was dating another actress, Kaia Gerber, daughter of supermodel Cindy Crawford.
Davidson’s most famous relationship, however, was with Kim Kardashian, but this was mostly due to Kanye’s reaction to the news. For months on end, there seemed to be daily headlines about it. Since his split with Kim, Davidson’s headline-making romances seem to have dwindled. Earlier this year, there was news of a short fling with Emily Ratajkowski, but that seemed to have fizzled out quickly. He’s now been linked to Bodies Bodies Bodies co-star Chase Sui Wonders.
