He’s got a big reputation. Pete Davidson‘s love life has been a topic of conversation through the years — and many celebrities have offered their opinions on the subject.
The former Saturday Night Live star’s dating life previously made headlines when he sparked a romance with Ariana Grande. The couple originally met in March 2016 during the singer’s appearance on SNL. They took things to the next level two years later and made their relationship Instagram official in May 2018.
Us Weekly broke the news in June 2018 that Davidson and Grande were engaged after a few weeks of dating. They called it quits later that year.
Before their split, the New York native admitted that he didn’t “hate” how his personal life was discussed by the public. “I’m just really, really happy, and if that means I have big d—k energy, then sick,” he told Variety in August 2018, referring to his ex-fiancé’s NSFW comment about him. “My favorite thing was my mom was like, ‘Peter, they’re saying you had a big penis just like your father.’ What the f–k!”
The Meet Cute actor was then briefly linked to Kate Beckinsale before moving on with Phoebe Dynevor in March 2021. After Davidson was spotted holding hands with the Bridgerton star, Us confirmed that they were trying to date long distance.
“They’re happy with each other. He makes her laugh. Pete is a good guy and definitely a charmer. He’s easy-going and fun to be around,” a source revealed. Davidson and Dynevor’s romance fizzled out later that summer.
At the time, Davidson opened up about his approach when it comes to dating someone new.
“I’m just very, very honest,” he said during an interview on “The Breakfast Club” in May 2021, noting that he isn’t into “playing any of the games” in a relationship. “I think what a lot of people do is they try to put on — not even their best self — but almost a version of themself that they would like to be. And eventually, that will unravel, you know?”
For the King of Staten Island star, it is important to be honest with a potential partner. “Off the top, I’m like, ‘Hey, I’m nuts. Here’s all my issues. Here’s what I do. Here’s the therapists. This is what happens,'” he continued. “And that can either be a lot for someone … or they could be like, ‘Cool, that was really refreshingly honest.’ Or sometimes it can be a little intense and weird and people can handle that stuff.”
Later that year, the actor was at the center of attention again after he started dating Kim Kardashian. The duo, who reconnected in October 2021 during the reality star’s SNL hosting gig, confirmed their romance after they were spotted holding hands.
After less than one year of dating, Davidson and Kardashian ended their relationship in August 2022. The Bodies Bodies Bodies star has since been linked to Emily Ratajkowski.
“Pete makes Emily laugh and he loves how intelligent she is,” another insider exclusively told Us in November 2022, noting that the twosome have been together for “a couple of months.”
That same month, Jay Pharoah weighed in on Davidson’s public romantic life. “You could have a big whatever all day. You can handle business all day. But … you gotta be able to listen. You gotta have everything in the relationship. … Pete is just a sweet dude,” he said on SiriusXM’s The Jess Cagle Show. “He’s sweet. He’s vulnerable. … He got Kate Beckinsale. He got the vampire from the Underworld. What the hell? Are you kidding me? What, you got Ariana Grande? You? … Hey, I’m proud of him. … If [Queen Elizabeth II] was still alive, he would’ve slept with her.”
