Pete Davidson may be the King of Staten Island, but he’s also the king of romancing high-profile women in Hollywood. From a whirlwind engagement to pop superstar Ariana Grande, to recent rumours of a private date with none other than Kim Kardashian, it would seem that Pete’s charms are capable of wooing just about anyone. While we know that humour goes a long way in locking down a partner, a new theory goes one step further in breaking down how he’s managed to date so many stunning women.
The theory points to Saturday Night Live, where Pete has been a cast member since 2014, as the place where romance blossoms. Pete met his former fiancée there when she hosted the series, and although we know how that ended, if not for SNL we would not have “Thank U, Next” in our lives. He was also spotted holding hands with now-ex Kate Beckinsale outside an SNL afterparty — they packed on the PDA at a hockey game not long after that. He met another lover, Bridgerton star Phoebe Dynevor on set, and the two dated for a while before ending things in August.
Now it would appear that Pete and Kim K are in the early stages of a relationship, as the Keeping Up With the Kardashians alum locked lips with Pete during an Aladdin-themed sketch when she hosted SNL in October. Three weeks later, the internet was shook after seeing photos of the two holding hands on a spooky rollercoaster ride on Oct. 29. Then, on Nov. 2, the two had a private dinner together on Staten Island, where Pete is from. They hung out again the following night in Manhattan at a private social club with a group of friends on Nov. 3.
Neither of the stars have confirmed they’re dating, but if the SNL theory holds up, it’s only a matter of time before things are official. Until we know for sure, we’ve rounded up some of the internet’s best reactions to Pete’s love life to tide us over:
I think pete davidson is attractive of course but wtf is going on there, truly, that made kim kardashian of all people go to staten island? I would never go to staten island for a man! I would barely go above 14th street for a man!
