Stand-up comedian and actor Pete Davidson has been in the public eye ever since he began appearing on various MTV shows back in 2013.
But it wasn’t until his high-profile romance with pop star Ariana Grande that the world took notice of Davidson’s love life – and his relationships have continued to make headlines ever since.
Amid reports that Davidson is now dating model Kaia Gerber, here’s a look at the people he has been romantically linked to in the past.
October 2019: Kaia Gerber and Davidson were romantically linked for the first time.
In October, supermodel Kaia Gerber was first romantically linked to Davidson when they were spotted grabbing dinner in New York City.
Throughout November, the two were photographed kissing and celebrating Davidson’s birthday together. Recently, they were also photographed hand-in-hand while attending a friend’s wedding.
August 2019: Davidson was reportedly dating actress Margaret Qualley.
In August, Us Weekly reported that Davidson and actress Margaret Qualley have been dating for a few months.
The actress played Pussycat in “Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood” earlier this year and she’s also starred on the TV series “The Leftovers.”
January – May 2019: Davidson and actress Kate Beckinsale reportedly dated for a few months.
In January, reports circulated that Davidson and Beckinsale were spotted “flirting” at Golden Globes after-parties, publicly linking the two together for the first time.
In March, Davidson and “The Widow” star were photographed kissing at a New York Rangers game in NYC. Beckinsale also spoke about the romance that month, saying that even though she wished paparazzi wouldn’t hide outside of her house, dating Davidson was worth it.
By May, Us Weekly reported the pair went their separate ways, splitting after nearly four months together. Neither Davidson nor Beckinsale confirmed their split.
May – October 2018: Davidson and Grande dated for a few months and were briefly engaged.
Davidson told Howard Stern that he started dating Ariana Grande on the night of the Met Gala on May 7, 2018, when the pair hung out with friends at Grande’s NYC apartment.
The “7 rings” songstress had met the “SNL” star when she first appeared on the show to perform back in 2014 but did not become close until she appeared on the show again in 2016. Grande had been dating the late rapper Mac Miller at the time.
Grande confirmed she’d split from Miller in a post on her Instagram Story on May 9, 2018, and in the coming weeks, Grande and Davidson were spotted together on various occasions, even sporting new matching tattoos. They also commented frequently on each other’s Instagram accounts.
They didn’t become Instagram official until later that month when they dressed up in “Harry Potter” outfits in a since-deleted post on Davidson’s account.
Days later, on June 3, Grande was spotted wearing what Us Weekly and TMZ reported to be an engagement ring, but the couple didn’t confirm they were engaged until June 20, when Davidson appeared on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” and announced their engagement.
A summer romance ensued, with the couple moving in together into her New York City apartment, adopting a pet pig that they named Piggy Smallz and Grande even dedicated an interlude on her album “Sweetener” after her new fiancé, naming it “Pete Davidson.”
They made their red-carpet debut at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards on August 20, exactly two months after confirming their engagement.
Then, in September, they announced plans to take a break from social media.
At the end of that month,Davidson joked about the couple breaking up on “Saturday Night Live.” A few weeks later, in October, reports confirmed the couple had split, with Davidson discussing the split in the following weeks during his stand-up shows and on “SNL.”
May 2016 – May 2018: Davidson and Cazzie David were together for about two years.
Following his split with Aquilino, the Staten-Island native began dating Cazzie David, creator of the web series “Eighty-Sixed.”
According to Us Weekly, Davidson began dating the actress and writer in May 2016 and the couple was spotted together out in New York City that same year.
In April 2017, Davidson spoke highly of his then-girlfriend, telling Entertainment Tonight, “She’s the most beautiful girl in the world, look how lucky I am. She’s so smart, look how smart she is. She is a very, very wonderful lady.”
He also credited her with helping him stay sober, saying, “I’m very lucky. She’s very, very supportive.”
For her part, Cazzie David, the daughter of “Seinfeld” co-creator and several-time “SNL” guest star Larry David, said that her father “100%” approved of her dating Davidson, adding, “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.”
2014 – 2015: Although the exact dates of their relationship are unclear, Davidson’s first high-profile relationship was with his MTV co-star Carly Aquilino.
Not much is known about Davidson’s pre-fame love life, but his first public relationship was with his MTV co-star, fellow stand-up comic Carly Aquilino.
The pair both appeared on MTV’s “Guy Code” and “Girl Code,” respectively, and reportedly dated between 2014 and 2015, although the official timeline is unclear.
Although she has since seemingly deleted many of her Instagram posts featuring Davidson, the TV host has kept a handful of photos of the two of them, dating back to 2013, when they first began appearing on MTV.
The last Instagram shot of them appeared on Aquilino’s account was in February 2015, presumably around the time they split.
