From his engagement to Ariana Grande to his 2021 romance with Phoebe Dynevor from Bridgerton, Pete Davidson has had a number of well-known girlfriends, exes, and relationships. Of course, Kim Kardashian is one of them.
Therefore, it makes sense that there would be a lot of curiosity about the comedian’s dating past, as well as who celebrity he might be dating at the moment. From his 20-year age difference with Kate Beckinsale to his most recent hand-holding with Kim Kardashian, these are all the people Pete has been associated with over the years.
Carly Aquilino: 2015
In 2015, Pete had a brief relationship with American stand-up comedian and actress Carly Aquilino. The two appeared to part ways amicably, and they later collaborated on the 2020 movie The King of Staten Island. Carly openly thanked Pete for the part on Instagram.
Carly did, however, seem to poke fun at Pete’s engagement to Ariana Grande in 2018. According to Us Weekly, she shared a screenshot of a text message she received the day Pete and Ariana announced their engagement, saying, “I know I’m the 9 billionth person to text you today about this, but… I can’t,” and adding the caption, “My day in a text message.”
Pete dated writer and actress Cazzie David for two years beginning a year after his breakup with Carly, and the two appeared in several public settings together.
During a frank interview on Complex’s Open Late with Peter Rosenberg in May 2018, Pete stated the relationship had ended. “He said, “Very talented girl, she’ll be wonderful and she’ll be well. We’re no longer together. Yes, I believe she will be alright.”
Cazzie discussed her breakup with Pete in her book of essays titled No One Asked For This two years later, in 2020. In one section of the book, Cazzie relates how she “shook uncontrollably” in her father Larry David’s arms after learning of Pete’s relationship with Ariana the day after Pete sent a text formally ending their relationship.
However, the two appeared to mend their ways as Cazzie mentioned Pete in the book’s acknowledgements, writing, “Pete. I cherish you. I’m inspired by your courage, and I value our friendship dearly.”
Ariana Grande: May Through October 2018
Pete and Ariana Grande officially announced their relationship in May 2018, not long after the comedian’s split with Cazzie. It is likely one of the most well-known partnerships in his life.
The two’s romance developed swiftly, and a few weeks later, on 2 June, Pete debuted two tattoos that were inspired by Ariana, including the letters “AG” on his hand and the infamous “Dangerous Woman” bunny ears behind his ear.
Pete announced their engagement on June 15, almost exactly one month after they were first seen hanging out, taking things one step further.
However, the couple called off their engagement soon after, in October 2018. Later, Ariana made a famous allusion to Pete in her song “thank u, next,” singing, “even came close to the union. And for Pete, I’m very grateful,” followed by a “dipping” apology to Pete “in the music video that goes with it.
Kate Beckinsale: March–April 2019
After the two were seen interacting flirtatiously at a Golden Globes afterparty in January 2019, Pete was first connected to actress Kate Beckinsale. Pete and Kate had a 20-year age difference at the time; Pete was 25 and Kate was 45.
Later, on March 4, the couple publicly acknowledged their relationship by sharing a kiss at a New York Rangers game. Pete is said to have subsequently met Kate’s parents.

Later that month, Kate revealed her relationship with Pete to the LA Times, saying: “I’ve never dated someone who brings their own bag of mischief, so I’ve never been in this situation before. Everything is extremely shocking, but you just have to get used to it. I believe you would withdraw if you didn’t like the individual as much. There would be a problem if that were the main focus of the relationship. Yet it isn’t.”
Sadly, the couple split up in April 2019, according to rumours, making their union rather brief.
Margaret Qualley: August Through October 2019
Around August 2019, Pete is said to have started dating Margaret Qualley, an actress who starred in Maid.
In September, Margaret’s mother Andie MacDowell spoke to PEOPLE about the couple’s connection after they were photographed holding hands.
“I recently FaceTimed Pete, and during that call, she recorded a video of myself to email to Pete. She and he have a lovely relationship, and I don’t want to intrude too much. They get along well together, “She disclosed. The couple had reportedly split up by October, though.
Kaia Gerber: November 2019 Through January 2020
Following dating rumours, Pete and model Kaia Gerber were seen holding hands in upstate New York in November 2019, possibly confirming their romance.
Before breaking up in January 2020, the couple dated for a few months. The following month, in a sit-down interview with Charlamagne Tha God that was uploaded to YouTube, Pete talked about the split.
He said, “We were dating for a few months. “I’m f***ing going through a lot, and it was before I went to treatment. She’s extremely little.
“She really ought to be having fun, it seems. She shouldn’t have to stress over some jerk who only has problems and s**t. She ought to be relishing her job. Simply said, neither the setting nor the moment was appropriate.”
Phoebe Dynevor: March To August 2021
When Pete and Bridgerton actress Phoebe Dynevor were seen holding hands in Staffordshire in March 2021, dating rumours about the two began to circulate.
The couple didn’t go public with their relationship until July when they were photographed holding hands, caressing, and generally looking adorable in the stands at a Wimbledon tournament.
A source told The Sun that Pete and Phoebe’s romance was a true whirlwind and that from the beginning they were both absolutely dedicated. Sadly, the pair broke up shortly after in August 2021. But as time has gone on, it has become more and more clear that it will be challenging to make this work.
“While it lasted, it was wild, and they both genuinely care for one another. However, the distance has strained them. Although their friends think they would make a terrific match, the distance has rendered that impossible. They enjoyed themselves and will stay close, but unless something drastically different occurs, their relationship won’t improve.
Kim Kardashian: October 2021 – Now
After she presided over Saturday Night Live in October 2021, Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson became acquainted. On a ride at Knott’s Scary Farm in Buena Park, California, they were later seen holding hands and appearing to be on a double date with Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker.
While they were papped (via Page Six) holding hands on a date for Valentine’s Day in February, Kim and her new beau were seen holding hands as they boarded a boat in The Bahamas to start out 2022. By March, Kim had disclosed Pete had tattoos honouring her, and they had been spotted together in several Instagram PDAs.
In April, Kim made it clear she was considering the future of their relationship, saying she wouldn’t be with Pete if she didn’t feel that way. “Naturally, I want to take my time, but overall, I’m extremely content and delighted. And being at peace is such a lovely feeling “Good Morning America,” she said.
“I am a relationship kind of lady, for sure, and I wouldn’t be with someone if I didn’t plan on spending a lot of my time with them,” Kim responded when asked how serious the situation was.
