Who Is Pete Davidson?
Pete Davidson is a comedian, actor and writer from Staten Island, New York. He was born on November 16th 1993 to parents Amy and Scott Matthew Davidson. His father was a firefighter who died on service during the 9/11 terrorist attacks. His father’s death has been used as joke material during stand-up comedy events and celebrity roasts.
Pete Davidson’s career started on MTV, where his most notable acting credit came during an episode of reality TV comedy, Guy Code in March 2013. Following this, he hit the stand-up comedy circuit in the US before appearing on the TV police-based sitcom Brooklyn Nine Nine (which can currently be viewed on Netflix).
Pete Davidson amassed a wide fanbase after he joined the cast of the iconic Saturday Night Live late-night comedy sketch television show. He joined the cast in September 2014, becoming one of the youngest cast members ever at the age of 20. Pete Davidson left Saturday Night Live in 2022.
His later film acting credits include What Men Want; The Dirt; The Angry Birds Movie 2 along with the upcoming Netflix biopic I Slept With Joey Ramone, in which he will play Joey Ramone of The Ramones.
Pete Davidson Girlfriends
Pete Davidson may be a funny man but his dating history isn’t something to be laughed about. The SNL star has had some very high-profile relationships including Ariana Grande and Kim Kardashian. But in between the two stars, Davidson has dated an impressive list of women.
Davidson briefly dated stand-up comedian Carly Aquilino in 2015 and then writer and actress Cazzie David for two years after Aquilino.
After they broke up, Davidson had a short fling with Ariana Grande which led to an engagement. Next up for the comedian was 40-something Kate Beckinsale whom he gave up 20 years in age.
When he broke up with Beckinsale, he proceeded to date Margaret Qualley, the daughter of actress Andie McDowell. Next up was model Kaia Gerber and then Phoebe Dynevor. And then it was Kim Kardashian whom Pete went steady with for nearly a year.
Emily Ratajkowski came after Kim K and most recently, he was linked to his Bodies Bodies Bodies co-star Chase Sui Wonders.
Pete Davidson Kim Kardashian
Without a doubt, Pete’s most high-profile relationship was with business mogul and TV star Kim Kardashian.
The first documented meeting between Kim K. and Pete Davidson was on January 30, 2019, when the then-couple Kim and Kanye West went to dinner with Davidson and Timothee Chalamet to celebrate Kid Cudi’s birthday. In an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Davidson admitted to ‘getting stuck’ to paying the bill at that dinner and went on to call Kimye ‘the cutest couple ever.’.
Romance however began when Kim hosted Saturday Night Live in October 2021 and the two shared a kiss during an Aladdin and Princess Jasmine skit. Although it looked like nothing more than a stage kiss at that time, Kim K. admitted months later that she felt a ‘zing’ from the smack.
Rumours of a blooming relationship followed after the two began casual dating. At the start of 2022, the pair was spotted vacationing in the Bahamas.
One month later, Pete referred to Kim as his girlfriend in an interview with People, and by April, they made their public debut as a couple during the Los Angeles premiere of The Kardashians.
But things began to turn sour between the new couple when Davidson began a five-week filming period for the movie Wizards! in Australia. Kim K visited her beau there in July and the two spent a weekend together.
However, before the month was over, it was reported by E! News that they were splitting up due to the long-distance status of their relationship and hectic schedules among the reasons. The whirlwind romance lasted only nine months.
Pete Davidson Emily Ratajkowski
Davidson quickly rebounded from her split with Kim Kardashian by dating model and actress Emily Ratajkowski who was coming off a split with her actor husband Sebastian Bear-McClard. Ratajkowski once appeared with Davidson at SNL and that meeting left a first impression.
During an interview at Late Night with Seth Myers, Ratajkowski described Davidson as “super charming”. She added:
“Pete—he’s got the height. Obviously, Women find him very attractive. Guys are like, ‘Wow. What’s that guy got? And I’m like, I mean, he seems super charming. He’s vulnerable. He’s lovely. His fingernail polish is awesome. He looks good!”
Soon, the new pair would be seen all over the place. Shortly after paparazzi photographed them holding hands on a Brooklyn date, relationship rumours swirled after they were caught hugging while wearing matching outfits.
On November 27, Pete and Emily made their first public appearance when they watched the New York Knicks host the Memphis Grizzlies at courtside from Madison Square Garden. But before 2022 was over, they were both seen with different partners. Davidson was spotted with Bodies Bodies Bodies co-star Chase Sui Wonders while Ratajkowski was caught passionately kissing Jack Greer.
A source told People that although Ratajkowski has been dating since her split from her ex-husband, she isn’t planning to get serious with the people that he has been linked to. She is enjoying her time as a single woman and is trying to keep her options open after what he went through with her failed marriage.
Pete Davidson Jenna Ortega
As the calendar turned 2023, a new girl was linked to Pete Davidson. With Emily Ratajkowski enjoying the field for now, Davidson’s name became connected to former Disney Actress Jenna Ortega.
Jenna is a known fan of Pete. In fact, she and her former boyfriend actor Asher Angel dressed up as Pete and ex-GF Ariana Grande while attending Just Jared’s Halloween Party in 2018. Ortega is currently making a push in the acting scene.
The 20-year-old actress has a starring role in the Netflix horror comedy series Wednesday, for which she earned a Golden Globe nomination.
Despite current rumours, the two celebrities have not been spotted together nor have they worked together on a project. Both however appeared at the 2023 Kids Choice Awards, with Ortega receiving the Favorite Female TV Star award and Davidson a presenter for the Lifetime Achievement Award.
It appears that netizens are merely speculating on the alleged association between Davidson and Ortega and it’s unclear what sparked rumors to spread around. Last March, Ortega told Elle that she was single with no rush to enter into a relationship. In that interview, she said that she is currently obsessed with her work.
Pete Davidson Ariana Grande
Pete Davidson and Ariana Grande began dating in May 2018. The pair had met a couple of times at SNL several years back but it wasn’t until after they were seen looking lovey-dovey at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards that they were linked to each other.
After just weeks of dating, Davidson proposed to Grande with a $93,000 engagement ring from New York City celebrity jeweller Greg Yuna. The newly-engaged couple then headed to Disneyland to celebrate.
In an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Davidson confirmed the engagement by saying he felt like he “won a contest.”
But in October 2018, the couple announced that they were calling off the engagement. There was no official statement from either party but reports said that it was likely a case of “too much too soon”. Meanwhile, TMZ said that the main cause was the death of Ariana’s ex-boyfriend Mac Miller.
While Grande didn’t blame herself for Miller’s passing, she was reportedly in a dark place after it happened. She reportedly realized that he could not be fully invested in a relationship with Davidson and that she rushed into an upcoming marriage by getting engaged too fast.
The Grammy-winning singer then referenced Davidson in a song called “Thank You, Next”. It was the second time that Davidson was mentioned in an Ariana Grande show. Back when they were still engaged, Grande decided to include a track called “Pete Davidson” in her fourth studio album, Sweetener.
Pete Davidson Kate Beckinsale
The initial spark to the Pete Davidson-Kate Beckinale relationship happened during a post-Golden Globes party where the two were seen leaving together. They kept their dating low-key but were photographed in public several times while holding hands.
Then in March 2019, Pete and Kate showed their true feelings for one another when they kissed during a New York Rangers game.
Later, the couple was photographed having an intimate dinner with Beckinsale’s mom Judy Loe, and stepfather Roy Battersby. That dinner date started rumours that the two could be taking their relationship seriously.
However, that turned out to be the peak of the relationship if you wanted to call it that. By April 2019, sources confirmed to ET that Davidson and Beckinsale were no longer dating although they remain friends.
Many believed that the age gap between Pete Davidson and Kate Beckinsale was the reason why they broke up. But interestingly, the 20-year age difference was ruled out as the cause of the breakup.
A few months later, Davidson revealed that his health issues were a big factor in the breakup. Davidson has had drug rehab stints, PTSD, borderline personality disorder, and depression. According to Davidson, Beckinsale had plenty of work at that time while he wasn’t “right” yet so it was not the right time.
Pete Davidson Dad
We’ve already touched upon Pete Davidson’s dad, revealing that he passed away during the 9/11 terrorist attacks in New York City. But aside from just being a father to the comedian and a courageous firefighter, Scott Davidson is said to have been a hero to practically everyone he met.
One of Pete Davidson’s most recent film projects, The King of Staten Island is loosely based on his own life, and even includes the storyline of the main character’s father being a firefighter who has passed away. It is likely this character is based on Pete’s father, Scott Davidson.
Scott Davidson was last seen helping people evacuate a Marriott hotel before the North Tower of the World Trade Center collapsed onto it, likely killing Pete’s dad immediately. Scott was part of Ladder 118. The firetruck he was on was captured in an iconic photo taken on 9/11.
Scott Davidson was born on 4 January 1968 in Brooklyn, New York, before moving to Staten Island when he was two. He was a keen athlete at school, playing both baseball and basketball for his various schools and colleges. After he left school, Scott Davidson became a substitute teacher, but always expressed an interest in one day becoming a firefighter.
He passed his firefighter’s exam in 1994. He continued playing basketball for the firefighter’s team and even coached other teams too.
Pete Davidson Tattoos
If he isn’t known for his comedy or his relationship with Kim Kardashian, then Pete Davidson is known for his tattoos. Pete is said to have over 70 tattoos on his body, although, according to Insider, he has said he wishes to now get them all removed.
Pete has opened up in interviews to say he started getting tattoos to cover up self-harm marks on his chest.
Some of Pete Davidson’s tattoos include an image of the alien from the 1996 comedy sci-fi film Mars Attacks on his right pectoral, the number ’93 to indicate his birth year in the middle of his chest, a micro heart and a micro cube on his right hand, a portrait of the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg and a white angel on his back.
Other tattoos include a quote from Albus Dumbledore from the Harry Potter series, some of the planets in the solar system on his left arm and a kneeling firefighter at the top of his left arm, in honour of his father.
Pete Davidson’s Net Worth
Thanks to his long stint with Saturday Night Live, which is said to have earned him $15,000 per episode, plus several acting credits under his belt, Pete Davidson currently has an estimated net worth of $8 million.
Pete Davidson Penis
With the impressive resume of relationships that he’s had, many have wondered what is it in Pete Davidson that makes him very attractive to beautiful women. Some say it must have been his sense of humour.
But ex-girlfriend Ariana Grande may have given it away when she once bragged on social media that Davidson was “like ten inches”. Grande also tweeted “HUUUUUGE” next to a photo of her and Pete.
Davidson didn’t like the fact that Grande bragged about him having a huge penis. During a stand-up show in 2019, Davidson hit back at Grande, saying that “everything is huge to her”. Pete also asked why Ariana would tell the public that he had a big penis.
Because of her revelation, Davidson became labelled as BDE or Big Dick Energy.
Pete’s reputation as BDE was one of the reasons why his recent ex, Kim Kardashian got interested in him. Although Kim never gave a hint of how long Pete’s schlong was, it must have been of good size, considering they lasted 9 months as a couple.
Last April, Davidson cleared the air on his penis size during an appearance at The Breakfast Club. In that show, Davidson revealed that he has a normal-sized penis, one that is big enough to enjoy and not big enough to hurt.
Pete Davidson Health
Pete Davidson was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease at the age of 17 or 18. He uses medicinal marijuana to help with treatment and pain, but he also uses it recreationally.
In a since-deleted Instagram post from 2017, Pete Davidson claimed he was off drugs – except for the medicinal marijuana – and was now sober. Pete has also been diagnosed with borderline personality disorder, and has since spoken on comedian Marc Maron’s podcast, saying he is “depressed all the time.”
Pete Davidson Cairns
Pete Davidson spent five weeks from July to August 2022 in Cairns to film the Australian and US comedy movie Wizards! with co-stars Orlando Bloom, Naomi Scott, Sean Harris, and Franz Rogowski.
The movie dwells on the comical exploits of two beach bar operators ( Davidson and Rogowski ) who get into trouble when they stumble upon stolen loot.
While filming in Australia, Davidson’s then-girlfriend Kim Kardashian, travelled via private jet to visit him there. The two stayed at the AUD 5,000-a-night five-star Silky Oaks Lodge in the lush Daintree rainforest near Mossman in Tropical North Queensland.
Kim K reportedly stayed there for only a couple of days and she immediately returned home to work on The Kardashians reality show. But it was while Davidson was finishing his movie in Cairns that reports of the couple splitting after nine months emerged. When Davidson left Australia, he was a bachelor again.
