Did Breaking Up with Ariana Grande and Kate Beckinsale Cause Pete Davidson to Move in with His Mom?
Most people move out of their parent’s homes when they reach a certain age. For celebrities, that time usually comes a bit faster as they have more money to throw around than others.
So when news hits that a celebrity lives at home with their parents, people are often shocked. But Pete Davidson, who shares a lot of his life with the public, has made it clear that he is not ashamed to live with his mom.
Davidson announces living with his mom
On Saturday’s episode of Saturday Night Live, Davidson spoke about his living situation on the “Weekend Update” segment of the show while wishing his mother a Happy Mother’s Day.
“This year, she’s not just my mom, she’s also my roommate,” Davidson said.
“I know what people think,” he continued. “They see you on TV and magazines and stuff and they think, ‘That guy must have a place.’ Nope.”
According to Davidson, the two purchased a house together.
“So I live with my mom… well we bought a house together, but nobody believes that. So I live with my mom, kinda,” he said on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. “So I have, like, a basement that’s mine, but that’s, like, an apartment, so I live underneath her.”
The home has an arcade in the basement that Davidson wanted to call “the man cave.”
“I was calling it The Man Cave, but the Mulaneys told me that if I call it that they will no longer be my friend,” he said, referring to John Mulaney and his wife, Anna. “So, now I call it The Basement like The Ohio State University. I don’t like that college. It’s the ‘the’ that’s the important part.”
Davidson’s rocky relationships
Davidson moved in with his mother after a very public breakup with actress, Kate Beckinsale and a broken engagement with singer, Ariana Grande.
Grande and Davidson had the definition of a whirlwind romance.
“We never exchanged numbers or anything, we weren’t even friends for the longest time, but I had the biggest crush in the whole world on him the whole time — like forever,” she once told Jimmy Fallon of her first time meeting Davidson. “Like, my friends used to make fun of me for it.”
“I’m not a crush-y person, I don’t have, like, crushes on people I don’t know,” she continued. “But I left [Davidson’s writing room at ‘SNL’] and I jokingly said to my tour manager, I was like, ‘I’m marrying him. A hundred percent.'”
The two got engaged a few weeks after they started dating, but then called off the engagement just a few months after that.
Shortly after the split, Davidson got together with Beckinsale, but Grande made it clear that she was not bothered by their union.
She recently shared a quote about letting go by Horacio Jones on her
“Sometimes, the reason for letting someone go is because they can’t help but hurt you during this phase of their life,” it read. “When you love someone deeply, you learn what demons live within them and you realize they are hurting you because they are hurting somewhere within themselves. They are fighting a battle within and may not even know it, so they take it out on you and fight you.”
Since both breakups, Davidson has been focused on his mental health and dealing with Borderline Personality Disorder.
