When those now-infamous photos of Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson holding hands on a rollercoaster were released to the world, the internet went wild. If Davidson, whose dating history already included the likes of models, actresses and the world’s biggest pop stars could snag Kim Kardashian — arguably one of the most eligible women in the world, following her divorce from one of the most famous rappers alive today, Kanye West, mere months earlier (she was reportedly fielding date requests from billionaires, celebrities and even royals at the time) — what couldn’t he do?
Fast-forward nine months and the romance no one saw coming, not least Kardashian’s friend Megan Fox who told Davidson he was dreaming when he asked for Kardashian’s number, appears to have come to an end. Sources suggest age differences, priorities, and distance were factors in the split, which saw Davidson wearing a slogan T-shirt reading ‘What… I feel like sh*t’ in the days following and West posting fake news headlines in celebration (the latter of which apparently left Kardashian “livid”).
Now, just one question remains: where will Pete Davidson go next? Or, more to the point, who will Pete Davidson date next?
Firstly, though this list of women has been published far too many times (a moment of silence for their agent’s eye rolls when a Google Alert pings that’s, once again, to do with Pete Davidson), in the past few years, the SNL comedian has dated:
Comedian Cazzie David (May 2016 – May 2018), whose “What did I miss?” Instagram upon returning home from holiday to find out her boyfriend of two years had left her for Ariana Grande will go down in history, the aforementioned Ariana Grande (May 2018 – October 2018), who Davidson got engaged to after a few weeks of dating, British actress Kate Beckinsale (January 2019 – April 2019), American actress Margaret Qualley (August 2019 – October 2019), American model Kaia Gerber (October 2019 – January 2020), British actress Phoebe Dynevor (March 2021 – August 2021), and, finally, Kim Kardashian (October 2021 – August 2022).
As for who Davidson could date next, Twitter has some theories:

A Tweet suggesting the pair’s compatibility went viral earlier this week:

Over on Reddit, Miley Cyrus, who Davidson hosted a New Year’s Eve party with in Miami this year would be a good match, with one commenter posting: “I can definitely see this hot mess happening….they both are the same kind of grimey in an odd way.”
My favorite guess thus far is Julia Fox. Not only did Fox do a viral Paper Magazine cover with Davidson prior to each of them realizing they’d soon each be dating one half of Kimye, and this union would undoubtedly annoy West, but these two just suit.

Others have pointed out, Davidson won’t have to remove his “My girl is a lawyer” tattoo if he sparks up a relationship with another lawyer… such as Gloria Allred.

But, of course, no one would have ever suspected Kim Kardashian, so we’re likely miles off the mark. As another person put it on Reddit, Davidson moves in mysterious ways: “This is such a trying time for women. Any day one of us could wake up and find out we’re dating Pete. It’s anyone’s guess.”
