Who Is Pete Davidson Dating After Kate Beckinsale?

Pete Davidson rose to fame on Saturday Night Live, but these days, he makes more headlines with his personal life than with his comedy routines. The tattooed comedian has become an unlikely tabloid fixture and fans have been following along throughout the past several years, as Davidson has had relationships with several very successful women in entertainment.

A new report indicates that Davidson could be hooking up with yet another well-known celebrity. Read on to discover who he has dated in the past and who his new fling is reported to be.

Pete Davidson’s earliest high-profile relationship was with Cazzie David, the daughter of Larry David. The two dated for several years, from 2016 – 2018, before splitting early in 2018. On the heels of his breakup with David, Pete Davidson started dating pop superstar Ariana Grande. Their whirlwind romance was the subject of thousands of tabloid headlines.

Shortly after they went public with their relationship, Davidson and Grande announced their engagement. In short order, the two had moved in together, gotten matching tattoos, and declared their love for each other on various late-night talk shows. Sadly, their love didn’t last and by October 2018, Davidson and Grande had split up.

They never really gave a reason for their breakup, but many fans speculated that their relationship moved too quickly to really have a chance to solidify. The exes have remained amicable, and there truly seems to be no bad blood whatsoever between the two. Grande even referenced Davidson in her hit tune, “thank u, next,” stating that she was “grateful” for his time in her life.

Davidson and Kate Beckinsale’s brief fling

By early 2019, Davidson had moved on from the pain of his breakup with Grande. In January, the comedian was spotted getting flirty with Kate Beckinsale, the respected English actress. By February, the two were seen holding hands and spending time together in public, so fans assumed that things were getting pretty serious.

Beckinsale is two decades older than Davidson, but the age gap didn’t seem to bother the couple – in fact, Davidson even spoke out on Saturday Night Live, mocking the double standard in Hollywood where older men date much younger women. In the months since their initial hookup, Beckinsale and Davidson seemed to be pretty hot and heavy – and were even photographed making out at sporting events. There was a lot of speculation regarding the pair, but as it turned out, fans didn’t have to wonder for too terribly long. 

Their relationship ultimately fizzled out fairly quickly. By May, reports surfaced that Beckinsale wasn’t really looking to get into anything serious and that they were pumping the brakes on their romance for the time being. Davidson, true to form, wouldn’t stay single for too long.

Who is Davidson dating now?

In August, Us Weekly released a report stating that Pete Davidson was dating actress Margaret Qualley. Supposedly, Davidson and Qualley have been quietly seeing each other for a couple of months and that the two get along very well. Qualley, while not quite as famous as Ariana Grande or Kate Beckinsale, has her own impressive credentials. The brunette actress, who recently appeared in Quentin Tarantino’s film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, is the daughter of Andie MacDowell. 

The tabloid claims that Davidson and Qualley plan to make their romance official by stepping out together at the Venice festival. Whether or not this relationship progresses as quickly as did Davidson’s flings with Grande and Beckinsale remains to be seen, but it is certainly possible that the comedian wants to take things a bit slower this time around.
