True to form, Pete Davidson soon discussed his relationship with Kaia on “Saturday Night Live.” When co-host Colin Jost asked him if he was dating anyone, Pete confirmed the relationship. But he had more to say on the subject. Some might even go as far as to call it a small rant.
Pete explained how the world cannot wrap its head around the fact that someone like him gets to date beautiful women. He had no idea how this was possible. “What did I do?” he joked. It seemed like the jibes about his inexplicable appeal to women had started getting to him.
Ah! To Be Young and in Love
Although the signs were subtle, hints that the two were dating became abundantly clear. In October 2019, Pete Davidson was spotted leaving Kaia's apartment in New York City. Pete and Kaia also attended the same New York Knicks basketball game, even though they sat in different parts of the stadium.
Kaia was at the game with her father, while Pete went with some of his friends. But it didn't take long for them to reconvene and get things back on track. Soon after, the pair jetted off for a romantic getaway vacation in Malibu. They were seen holding hands and looking happy.
By November, E! News confirmed that Pete Davidson and Kaia Gerber were officially in a romantic relationship. The two shared common friends and had known each for a long time. But they only began spending more time together after meeting in New York City and just like that - we had our new celebrity power couple.
Needless to say, Pete was over the moon that he had started another high profile relationship. Kaia loved his personality and found him charming and funny, among other things. The couple was excited to see where things go despite their demanding work and travel commitments.
Ouch! Cindy Crawford Does Not Approve
Pete and Kaia end the year on an unsurprising note. The couple earned the express disapproval of Kaia’s parents, Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber. Kaia had just turned 18, and Pete was 25. Kaia’s parents were concerned about the relationship since their daughter was still quite young. Any loving and involved parent would want to step in and guide her.
And it didn't matter if it was some random guy or if it was the most famous young comedian in the world. As for Pete, Cindy and Rande were aware that he was “troubled,” and they wanted to help the “struggling” comedian through a difficult time.
Pete and Kaia Break Up
For a minute there, it seemed like Pete Davidson and Kaia Gerber might have started something kind of special. But red flags began to present themselves. The couple dated for a few months before calling it quits in January 2020. Pete discussed the breakup with Charlamagne Tha God in an interview later posted on YouTube.
The comedian explained that someone as young as Kaia should not have to deal with his issues. It was not her cross to bear. Neither was it the right place nor the time for a serious relationship since he was going through a rough time emotionally.
