Pete Davidson has a new romance in his life — Emily Ratajkowski. The 28-year-old comedian and the 31-year-old model and actress are seeing each other, a source confirms to ET. “Pete and Emily have known each other for a while because they run in similar circles. They’ve always had a good time together and liked each other,” says the source. “More recently, they have spent one-on-one time with each other and things have become flirtatious between them. Emily is playing the field and enjoying dating.”
The new romance comes about three months after Davidson's split from Kim Kardashian. The couple parted ways in August after nine months of dating. Meanwhile, Ratajkowski filed for divorce from Uncut Gems producer Sebastian Bear-McClard in September. She has since been romantically linked to Brad Pitt. However, in October, Ratajkowski referred to herself as “newly single” amid the romance rumors. “I’m newly single for basically the first time in my life ever, and I just feel like I’m kind of enjoying the freedom of not being super worried about how I’m being perceived,” she said.
Davidson has been on Ratajkowski’s radar, as the two have a history together: they modeled together and she defended the Meet Cute star during a November 2021 interview on Late Night With Seth Meyers as “a professional,” adding, “I was impressed.” She also weighed in on Davidson’s charm, discussing why women find him attractive. “He’s got the height, obviously women find him very attractive,” she said, adding of those questioning the Saturday Night Live alum’s appeal, “I feel like only other men feel that way. Guys are like, ‘Wow, what’s that guy got?’ He seems super charming, vulnerable, lovely. His fingernail polish is awesome. He looks good! Good relationship with his mother, we love it!”
Ratajkowski also has a history with Davidson’s famous ex: in 2016, the pair posed topless together in a mirror selfie, flipping off the camera after Piers Morgan publicly insulted Kardashian for a nude pic. “Kim was kind enough to send me flowers,” Ratajkowski said at the time. “Then we decided to do a selfie with our tops off, flipping off the camera, which I think speaks for itself.”
