Pete Davidson Gets Candid About Kaia Gerber Split & MORE Of His Famous Exes: 'I Love Love'

Pete Davidson talks relationship with Kaia Gerber and other exes

Pete Davidson may seem like a serial dater, but he’s really just looking for love!

The Saturday Night Live star made that loud and clear in a new interview with Charlamagne Tha God, during which he opened up about his relationships with Kaia Gerber and a few other famous exes.

After noting that he and the 18-year-old model, whom he referred to as “KG,” had been “dating for a few months” before they broke up, the 26-year-old comedian explained why things didn’t work out between the two: apparently, it was just bad timing.

He elaborated:

“She’s very young, and I’m f**ing going through a lot and it was before I went to rehab… It’s just like, she should be having fun. She shouldn’t have to worry about some dude that just has issues and s**t. She should be enjoying her work… It just wasn’t the right place or the right time at all.”

Especially not for Pete, who has confirmed he recently sought treatment at the Sierra Tucson treatment center in Arizona.

As we reported, the Staten Island native and Gerber were first linked in October, but fans speculated their relationship had cooled off by January after they hadn’t been seen together in weeks.

Despite their breakup, Pete — who has borderline personality disorder and previously sought treatment in 2016 —  had nothing but wonderful things to say about his ex, whom he described as “beautiful” and “smarter than [himself].” He also praised Kaia’s parents Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber, adding:

“Her parents were really helpful and stuff, so they’re cool.”

Later in his interview with Charlamagne, the funny man admitted he can be “a lot” in relationships, sharing:

“I cry a lot. I get into deep conversations. I care about your s**t. I like to meet your family. I like to know who you are. And some families are like, ‘Who the f**k are you?’ So I’m a lot for certain people. It was just how I was raised.”

And while his recent relationships have suggested otherwise, Pete’s not exactly looking for a fling. He added:

“I love love. That’s how I grew up. Just my mom, my sister, I didn’t have a man around the house, so I was just like, ‘When am I going to find my Princess Charming?’ That’s all I’ve ever wanted.”


Under all those tattoos and cynical jokes, Pete’s just a big softy. Not only is he hoping to find a woman to share the rest of his life with, the actor — whose father died in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks — said he hopes to become a dad one day and has even considered adoption!

He explained:

“I just want to have a kid. I want to be there for something or do something that I didn’t have growing up. That’s my biggest thing.”

But first, he’s going to take a break from the dating scene and focus on himself. The performer noted:

“I’m not dating for a while. Unless I meet the love of my life. I’m pretty done with that, I’m going to try and stay away from that. It’s just a lot.”

Dating takes up a lot of BDE, that’s for sure!

While he hasn’t found the love of his life just yet, Pete said he’s learned a lot from his past romances:

“I think you grow a lot as a person. [I’ve] learned a lot from the awesome chicks that I’ve been with, and they’re all cool… You become a better version of yourself because you learn a little something from everybody. I’ve been very fortunate and lucky to date some really wonderful, beautiful, cool, talented women and with that comes [drama in the public eye], unfortunately. So I’m aware that there’s s**t, but I do think that I get a little harder than most. But like, that comes with the territory.”

When asked what he thinks of his ex Margaret Qualley, Pete said:

“Beautiful soul. Great girl. She’ll win an Oscar. She’s so talented. She’s dope.”

The New Yorker went on to gush over his other ex, Kate Beckinsale, sharing:

“Oh, man. F**ing legendary. All of my uncles freaked out. Also, f**ing hysterical. Really, really funny. One of the funniest people I’ve ever met. She’s really cool. She was very understanding and cool.”

As for why he and the Underworld actress split, he revealed:

“It wasn’t the right time. I think I was going into another rehab. I must have a pattern. I wasn’t like, right yet. And she had a lot of acting and work to do. She’s like, a superstar.”

What a sweetie!

Let’s hope Pete doesn’t have to wait too long to find the love of his life. Which celeb would YOU set him up with, Perezcious readers?
