Pete Davidson is currently familiarising himself with Emily Ratajkowski. A source close to Davidson has confirmed that the former Saturday Night Live cast member, 28, and the actress and model, 31, are “seeing each other.”
After the celebrity gossip Instagram account Deux Moi stated that the two had been sighted together in New York City, the news was originally reported by US Weekly.
An insider has shared with Us in an exclusive interview that “Pete and Emily have been talking for a couple months now.” The insider went on to say that the two are “in the very early stages, but both really like each other.”
Ratajkowski, who is now 31 years old, separated from her husband Sebastian Bear-McClard in July, after the couple had been married for almost four years. She filed for divorce in September, amidst reports that the producer had been unfaithful.

Who Was Davidson Dating Earlier?
Pete Davidson was earlier dating Kim Kardashian. The first romantic speculations about the couple surfaced in October 2021, and they lasted until August 2022, when they broke up after dating for nine months. At the time of their breakup, a source close to the couple revealed to PEOPLE that “Part of the reason they split was because of their busy schedules, they both travel all the time, and it was hard.”
Since his breakup with Kardashian, 42, the King of Staten Island actor has been focusing on his career and trauma rehabilitation. Davidson’s decision to get help was influenced by Kanye West’s abusive tweets and Instagram posts about the Skims founder throughout their relationship.
An insider close to Kardashian confirmed the end of the nine-month relationship, saying, “Kim and Pete have decided to just be friends.”
“They have a lot of love and respect for each other, but found that the long distance and their demanding schedules made it really difficult to maintain a relationship.”
How Did They Meet?
When the model and the comic were introduced by mutual acquaintances, feelings quickly rose. “Pete makes Emily laugh, and he loves how intelligent she is,” the source tells Us exclusively.
Despite her recent divorce, Emily Ratajkowski is having fun in the dating scene. Last month, she said to Harper’s Bazaar, “I can tell you that I have never been single before. I feel all the emotions. I feel anger, sadness. I feel excitement. I feel joy. I feel levity. Every day is different. The only good thing I know is that I’m feeling all those things, which is nice because it makes me believe that I’ll be okay.”
What Does Emily Ratajkowski Feel About Dating Pete Davidson?
The author of My Body is somewhat fresh to the dating scene. The Gone Girl star admitted that “It was hard for me to go on a date with someone and think about how much I did or didn’t like them, I would have been thinking about how they were perceiving me, what it meant, what they wanted from me, what it meant about my self-worth.”
Ratajkowski was previously linked to Brad Pitt before she began dating the SNL star. According to an exclusive Us report from September, the Bullet Train actor, 58, and the iCarly alum, 27, have been “hanging out as friends” and are “excited to see where things go.”
In an interview with Variety last month, Ratajkowski said that she felt “freedom” after her breakup with Bear-McClard. When asked about her newfound freedom, the singer said, “newly single for basically the first time in my life ever,” the star added, “And I just feel like I’m kind of enjoying the freedom of not being super worried about how I’m being perceived.”
Howard Stern had previously recommended that Ratajkowski and Davidson go on a date before they really started dating. The 68-year-old radio host made the remark on the September 12 episode of “The Howard Stern Show” on SiriusXM ” I was thinking Pete Davidson could go out with Emily Ratajkowski. That beauty. … That would be a good matchup there.”
