Sound the alarms: Saturday Night Live comedian Pete Davidson’s enchanting big dick energy appears to have landed him a new woman. In late October, he was spotted not once, but twice in the same week with the model Kaia Gerber, best known as Cindy Crawford’s 18-year-old daughter. Then, he traveled across the country to dine with her in a ritzy restaurant. Most recently, the couple was spotted upstate doing something that’s hard to write off as just-friends behavior: Holding hands. While they have yet to engage in aggressive PDA or get matching tattoos together, all the evidence is convincingly suggests that these two are definitely kissing.
Here’s everything we know about the sitch.
So what’s the evidence?
So far, we have quite a few documented hangouts. On October 23, a source told “Page Six” that Pete left Kaia’s apartment in Soho, where a paparazzo captured the comedian walking around wearing a zip-up and AirPods. Then, the very next day, a woman captured a sneaky photo of the two eating lunch in a cozy corner booth at Sadelle’s restaurant, in which Pete is beaming at Kaia (while she stares at her iPhone. Modern love!).
Admittedly, those two encounters didn’t look particularly romantic; then came what I’m confident labeling a date. On November 4, Pete “jetted across the States” to take Kaia to dinner at Nobu in her hometown of Malibu, the Daily Mail reports. The photos of this outing, as captured by the paparazzi, are compelling. Sitting across from each other in the front seat of Pete’s Mercedes G Wagon, the two can be seen staring into each others’ eyes as if mesmerized (and horny to kiss.) And it appears that the two are certainly enjoying each other’s company, if you know what I mean. On November 13, “Page Six” published photos of the them holding groceries — but more importantly, hands — outside a supermarket in Hillsdale, New York. An upstate trip already? We’re moving fast, here.
When would they have met?
Per a source who spoke to “Page Six,” it’s likely the celebs met this past June, when they both walked Alexander Wang’s spring 2019 runway — which also happened to be Pete’s modeling debut. Who among us, at one time or another, hasn’t swooned over a heavily tattooed man in a white tank top and backward baseball hat?
But didn’t Davidson just get out of a relationship?
Well, that is correct. In mid-October, Us Weekly reported that Pete had split from his doppelgänger, actress Margaret Qualley, after a few months of dating. (Per a “close source,” the two “remain friends,” which sounds lovely and mature.) But that’s not reason enough to shut down the possibility of Pete and Kaia being “a thing.” You can’t pick when you catch feelings for someone else, and we all know that Pete tends to move on from relationships pretty quickly. (Sure, he took a few months off of dating following his split from Ariana Grande, but that was one hell of an intense relationship.)
Also, Gerber seems to be just his type.
Davidson loves a well-known celebrity daughter: He’s dated Larry David’s (Cazzie David), Andie MacDowell’s (Qualley), and now Kaia, who, as mentioned above, is Cindy Crawford’s daughter. It’s probably coincidental, but something to think about!
That aside, he seems to have a thing for pretty brunettes — no mystery blondes for this man.
So do we think they’re dating?
While a source told “Page Six” that Pete and Kaia are “just friends,” their shared dinner at Nobu and trip upstate — as well as Pete’s dating record — suggest otherwise. And if they are truly dating, I’m sure we’ll have inarguable evidence soon enough. We all know how much Pete loves a public make out.
