Pete Davidson was photographed walking down the street after leaving supermodel Kaia Gerber's apartment building in the Soho neighborhood of New York City on Wednesday, October 23. Pete and Kaia were first linked in June 2019 after they both walked in designer Alexander Wang's fashion show. Timing for a new romance is right, as the Saturday Night Live star recently split from girlfriend Margaret Qualley.
It was confirmed that Pete, 25, was at the building to visit Kaia, 18, but they are reportedly "just friends," according to Page Six. Fans first became suspicious that something was going on between them when they were allegedly caught spending time together on Mercer Street in June.
Pete and Andie MacDowell's daughter Margaret, 24, started quietly seeing each other over the summer but they called it quits after just two months of dating on October 17. Before their breakup, Margaret's actress mother opened up about their romance. "She has a beautiful relationship with him but I don’t want to step on her relationship too much. They have a nice relationship," Andie, 61, told People.
The comedian's split from the Once Upon A Time In Hollywood star is his most recent in a string of failed relationships. Pete famously proposed to singer Ariana Grande after just a few weeks of dating in June 2018 but they called off their engagement the following October. He moved on with actress Kate Beckinsale after they hit it off at a Golden Globes party in January 2019, but their relationship fizzled in April 2019.
Pete's personal struggles have also made headlines this year. He shared a worrisome message on Instagram in December 2018 that prompted his SNL boss Lorne Michaels to send him to rehab. "I really don’t want to be on this Earth anymore. I’m doing my best to stay here for you but I actually don’t know how much longer I can last. All i’ve tried to do was help people. Just remember I told you so,” he wrote.
Pete bravely revealed that he was diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder back in September 2017.
He spoke candidly about the disorder and his drug-fueled downward spiral on the podcast WTF with Marc Maron and explained that he had learned to manage his symptoms with the help of dialectical behavior therapy, otherwise known as DBT.
