Peter Michael Davidson is an American comedian and actor born on November 16, 1993. From 2014 until 2022, he was a cast member of the NBC sketch comedy series Saturday Night Live (SNL) for eight seasons. Early in the 2010s, Davidson began his career with guest appearances on Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Friends of the People, Guy Code, and Wild ‘n Out.
Scott Matthew Davidson, his father, was a New York firefighter who died in 2001 during the September 11 attacks at the World Trade Center. In the 2010s, Davidson also appeared in several movies and television shows. Pete Davidson: SMD, his debut comedy special, was published in 2016; Pete Davidson: Live from New York will be released in 2020.
The 2019 comedy film Big Time Adolescence starred Davidson and was produced by him. He co-wrote and starred in the semi-autobiographical comedy-drama The King of Staten Island the following year.
In 2020, he was nominated for the People’s Choice Award for Favorite Comedy Movie Star, among other honors. Davidson began appearing in different films in the early 2020s, including The Suicide Squad (2021), Bodies Bodies Bodies (2022), and Marmaduke (2022).
In 2015, Davidson dated “Girl Code” alum Carly Aquilio briefly. Even though their relationship never became severe, Davidson certainly left a mark on her. In 2018, when he became engaged to Ariana Grande, Aquilino posted on Instagram about their relationship: “I know I’m the nine billionth person to text you about this today, but…I can’t.”
Davidson began his first long-term relationship with Cazzie David, daughter of comedian Larry David. In May 2016, the pair started dating, and things rapidly became severe. Two years later, in May 2018, Davidson confirmed the couple’s separation.
“We are no longer together,” Davidson stated to Complex at the time. “Very talented young lady, she’ll do well and be excellent. Yes, I believe she will be fine.”
David discussed their breakup in her upcoming collection of essays, “No One Asked for This,” in which she recalls the mental health issues they both experienced throughout their time as a couple, as well as when Davidson broke up with her the day before discovering he was seeing Grande.
Thankfully, she overcame the grief of their breakup and stated that they were once again friends.
The beginning of Davidson’s relationship with Ariana Grande was one of his most shocking romantic gestures. They publicly announced their romance at the end of May 2018, following Davidson’s breakup with Cazzie.
Davidson and Grande got engaged only a few weeks after the beginning of their relationship. However, just as quickly as things began, they stopped abruptly. After only five months, the couple called off their engagement and split in October 2018. Davidson moved on from his connection with the “Positions” singer by concealing the neck tattoo inspired by her.
At the Golden Globes in January 2019, Davidson and the Pearl Harbor actress were seen flirting at an afterparty. This led to rumors that they were going out together. A source told Us at the time, “She was kind of following him around and waiting for him.” “A lot of people tried to talk to her, but she didn’t want to.” The two people broke up in late April 2019.
In August 2019, we reported that the actor from Dirt was dating the actor from Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. A source told Us, “They’ve been dating for a few months, and Margaret is really excited about him.”
Two months later, Us Magazine was the first to report that the couple’s quick romance was over. In October 2019, someone close to Davidson and Qualley told Us, “They are still friends.”
We found out first in November 2019 that Davidson was dating the 18-year-old model. The insider said, “Pete and Kaia are dating, and they’ve been trying to keep their relationship quiet.” But they broke up a few weeks after the comedian joked on SNL in December that he was going back to mental health treatment. On January 14, 2020, Page Six of the New York Post confirmed the breakup.
Us told the Bridgerton star’s fans in April 2021 that the comedian had swept her off her feet. A source said at the time, “They’re happy with each other.” The two were “seeing where their relationship goes” and “trying to make long-distance work,” the source added.
Later that month, Davidson and Dynevor were caught on camera walking hand in hand through a beautiful part of the U.K. But Us made it clear in August 2021 that they were done.
The former “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star was first linked to the comedian after they did a few sketches together while she was hosting “Saturday Night Live” in October 2021. After seeing them together several times, a source told Us that Kardashian is “falling for” the comedian because he “makes her laugh” and “makes her feel good.”
Even though the makeup mogul and Davidson didn’t say much about their relationship, they were seen holding hands in public a month after rumors started that they were dating.
In June 2022, the singer said that she dated Davidson for a short time before he started dating Dynevor. “He texted me and was like, ‘I’m seeing someone else. She talked about their breakup on the podcast “BFFs with Dave Portnoy, Josh Richards, and Brianna Chickenfry.”
O’Brien said at the time that the two have stayed friends. “He’s really funny and very attractive. He’s also very nice. She went on and on about how nice her ex-boyfriend was. But a representative for the comedian told Us, “This is not true. They were friends and hung out once.”
In July 2022, the singer explained on her Instagram Story that her answer to a “very specific question” was taken “out of context.” She wrote, “I never said I had a boyfriend or girlfriend. Stop trying to make strange trouble because I texted someone two years ago.”
