From Carly to Ariana to Kim and everything in between. Featuring an additional (optional) deep dive into Mac Miller and Ariana Grande’s dating timeline, and other related rabbit holes.
Hi.If you’re here because you want all the tea, all the overlapping timelines and weird insider knowledge that gets revealed in whispered leaked sources and Met Gala afterparty gossip…all the stuff that eventually gets lost in the never-ending black hole of time and space (and flat tummy tea spon-con) that pop culture media drowns us in……then you are in luck.
This was originally going to just focus on the Pete-Mac-Ariana situation because there is some pretty blatant and interesting overlap I found, but then I was like actually… this dude’s whole timeline is pure chaos distilled and none of the current blogs and websites have done justice to how messy it really was.
So this will be pretty comprehensive and in-depth, but I’ll try to make it a fun read cuz I love mess and if you read this far you probably do too. Also dont come for me if grammar and capitalization arent great. i’m not a journalist!!😇
Disclaimer: I want to mention that I won’t really have a ton of my own opinions in here, good or bad, mainly because I want to be respectful of everyone involved’s mental health. Also, for anyone concerned about how I will be discussing Mac, please know that I have, and have always had, the utmost love and respect for him, and I’ll make sure my words reflect that as well.
Part 1: Ariana & Pete were definitely not single when they first hooked up.
Featuring Cazzie David and Pete Davidson’s relationship, and the very messy story of how Ariana and Pete first became a thing
Right. This is going to seem a little out of order relationship-wise at first, but to me it made the most sense to lay it out this way. I’m starting with the timeline of events that show how Ariana and Pete first got together in 2018.
Why? Because this is when you probably first heard Pete’s name right? When him and Ariana got together? Or maybe not, maybe you were a die-hard SNL fan, or like.. a Wildin’ Out enthusiast (is that a thing? are there like, stans for that show? LOL) but if not then you probably didn’t really know who he was before this. So yes, we’re starting with how Ariana and Pete got together because it’s a lot messier than I thought.
And just so y’all know, here’s how I decided we’re doing it:
PART 1: This will cover Cazzie David and Pete Davidson’s relationship, and the messy story of how Ariana and Pete first became a thing. I’m starting here because this is when most people first heard about Pete. And since this post is decidedly about Pete at the end of the day, this just made the most sense to me. This is what you’re reading now.
PART 2: This is a big segment that will deep dive into Mac and Nomi’s 7-year relationship timeline, from 2009 until 2016. This 7 year timeline breakdown is now up.
I decided this would be a separate article just for continuity’s sake(since it doesn’t really hold a ton of meaning for Pete’s timeline). I want to include this because it’s all wildly interesting, semi-relevant, and at times, pretty scandalous.
A college girl writing in her online journal about her rap star boyfriends rise to fame. It was not a private blog, in fact she was working towards becoming a writer full-time. On the chance that links get broken or removed, I screenshotted or copy/pasted a lot of that content for posterity’s sake. There is some crossover with their timeline and Mac and Arianas dating timeline as well. Once again if you are interested in that, I would recommend starting with it. Read it here.
PART 3: This is going to be a full breakdown of Mac Miller and Ariana’s relationship forming, and everything that happened during it. This breakdown is complete. I recommend reading this first because a lot of the events here come up again during Pete and Arianas relationship. you can read Ariana and Mac’s relationship breakdown here.
Which will lead perfectly into…
Part 4: This
will be is a full timeline breakdown of Pete and Ariana’s fast-paced relationship, combined with what Mac was doing at that time, and the drama and fall out that happened after they ended it. It will also cover all the other relationships Pete’s been in: Carly Aquilino(2015), & post-Ariana: Kaia Gerber,Kate Beckinsale, Margaret Qualley, Phoebe Dynevor, and Kim Kardashian.
Soooo this is Part 1. Part 1 and 4 are both on this page.
To give a little background, Pete was discovered because some guy was at one of his Staten Island stand-up shows and he liked what he saw, and connected him to Nick Cannon. Nick then put Pete on Wildin Out, and that MTV connection landed him an occasional guest spot in MTV’s Guy Code as well, and he gets a small part in a movie called Trainwreck that Amy Schumler found him for, which eventually leading to him being cast on SNL.
Pete met Ariana for the first time when he was only 20 years old and had JUST started working on SNL. When I say just started, I mean like… literally his first day:
And then March 12 2016, Ariana was on SNL again, I think she hosted it this time. A lot of sources will tell you that this is when they first met but thats not the case, as we know per the 2018 article linked above. During her monologue she joked about wanting a “real adult scandal” and Pete says to her, “Do you wanna like, smoke some pot or something?”
Pete comes in at around the 2 minute mark. She responds “Nah man lets smoke some crack” and hes like “…I’m good” and leaves hahaha. We’ll get into it more later, but in case you were wondering, Pete and Ariana were both in relationships when this was filmed so its unlikely anything happened here.
Anyway like I said, for now we’re going to fast forward to 2018.
April 21 2018, Ariana and Mac Miller are happily dating and at Coachella together:
Also on April 21, 2018: Pete says he’ll probably marry his current girlfriend(Cazzie David) during a set at Kenyon College. From a Refinery29 article where the author was a Kenyon College alumni:
“According to multiple sources who were in attendance, Davidson spoke on stage about his girlfriend at the time, and told the audience that they would probably get married.”
And, just so you guys are able to get a grasp on the timeline, I’m going to give a little info on Cazzie David now. Pete started dating her around November/December 2015.
Larry David, her father, was on SNL on Oct 17, 2015, and this is when I’m prettyyyy sure they must have first met. Even though Larry David has been on SNL a ton, I think this is when they met because lots of articles cite a 2.5 year relationship when they broke up in May 2018. So they probably met in October 2015, and started dating a month or two later, which would make it a 2 and a half year relationship.
I’ll go back into their relationship in a few but what you need to remember right now is that he said he’d probs marry her on April 21, and also on April 21, Ariana was cuddled up with Mac at Coachella.
Then on April 30 2018, Pete confirms that he is still dating his longtime girlfriend Cazzie in an interview.
“You’re dating Larry David’s daughter, Cazzie,” host Joe La Puma stated, seemingly catching Davidson off guard. “Yes. I’m a very lucky guy,” Davidson replied.
Then, on May 3 2018, Cazzie posted a pic with Pete that is definitely very couple-y, safe to say they’re still dating here:
4 days later is May 7th 2018… which is the first Monday of May, and in the celeb world that really only means one thing:
The Annual Met Gala in NYC.
And as you may remember, Ariana attends.
And this…is where it gets interesting. Let me give you a play-by-play of what happened that night.
After the Met Gala, Ariana hosts a get together/afterparty at the AirBnb she’s staying at in NYC. She invited Pete. She got his number from her manager Scooter Braun, apparently he told her the day or so before that he would be hanging out with some of the SNL cast, and she said she always had a crush on Pete and told Scooter, “Tell Pete I said hi”. Scooter goes an extra step for her and is basically like Pete, you can tell her hi yourself. He gives Pete her phone number. He texted her, and that’s how she ended up inviting him to her afterparty. (I will link the interview where she told this story shortly.)
Pete had a mutual friend that would also be going to the afterparty/get together thing, and he says the party started before she got back from the Gala. So, he says that Ariana walks in still wearing that Sistine Chapel dress. She changes out of it, and by the end of the night, they were all chilling playing Quiplash on the couch(celebs, they’re just like us!!🤪) for a while until everyone started leaving.
It ended up being just him and Ariana alone at her place, and he says that’s when he asked to kiss her. And then they kissed. His words:
“I’m so stupid and unaware of how chemistry and all that stuff works. I literally was like, ‘Hi, can I kiss you please?’” Davidson told Howard Stern. “We played the game, everybody left, and then it was just me and her. And I was like, ‘Well, if there was ever a shot, it would be now. Go for it.’”
Now… we dont find this story out until August-September 2018 when Ariana(this link is the interview she does talking about Pete & Scooter and how that invite came about) and Pete both do interviews(this link has Pete talking about his first kiss with Ariana, where I got a lot of the above from as well) about it.
Which yes, was after the Met Gala:
“He said he wore sweatpants and a T-shirt, while Grande was “coming from the Met [Gala],” so she was still dressed in her Sistine Chapel gown.”
So okay. Story over.
And just a reminder, that was May 7 2018.
On May 9 2018, Ariana and Mac Miller officially broke up.
May 10 2018, Ariana confirms it with an IG post:
Now pay attention, because what I’m about to say is all speculation at first…. but we get confirmation later.
Like okay, look at her phone case in the last pic here.
Did you look?
You saw it?
Cloud-shaped thing right?
Well … I’m pretty sure it was Pete’s phone, or his phone case at least:
She doesnt confirm that her and Pete are dating until May 31, when she posts this on IG:
BUT WAIT A SEC
look at the outfit!!! This was definitely taken at that SNL afterparty on May 12. I found this pic from that night too:
Also, the below photo was taken at that afterparty and its the same exact aesthetic as the above, & she posted it on May 13:
So yeah …all of the above is from May 12th, including the pic of Ariana and Pete cuddled up/kissing, we can confirm that now based on all the evidence.
Next thing I want to say is that Pete DID NOT ANNOUNCE HE BROKE UP WITH CAZZIE UNTIL MAY 16th!!
The Saturday Night Live cast member confirmed his split from Larry David’s daughter, Cazzie, in a PEOPLE exclusive…people.com
So…a few things to process here.
First of all, neither of them were officially/publicly single on May 7th.
And both Ariana and Pete were cuddled up with their long-term partners within the last 2 weeks when their kiss happened on the 7th. (Reminder: Ariana with Mac at Coachella in late April, Pete talking about Cazzie being his gf on April 30, + him and Cazzie couples pic on IG on May 3)
I will cut Pete some slack, because according to Cazzie’s book(which is actually a collection of personal essays), they were on a break. Although that relationship timeline is …well, we’re about to get into it so hold tight.
And Mac and Ariana.. IDK. I did find evidence from Mac’s ex(who he dated for 7+ years, since around 2010–2016), Nomi, where she wrote that Mac was the one who broke up with Ariana. So, it’s definitely possible that Ariana confessed to cheating and thats when he broke it off with her. I’ll go more into that and everything with Mac and Nomi in Part 3.
But so. Cazzie’s book has a lot of interesting tidbits y’all. Here is an excerpt from Nov 2020, when the LA times wrote this article about her book:
“Cazzie and Davidson were infatuated. He got a tattoo of her cartoon likeness on his arm, a tattoo of her name on his ring finger and a tattoo of her favorite emoji.”
Wait wait wait pause!!!! I have evidence of these tats! Here we go:
He posted this on his IG I think, back when he had one. Anyway it is confirmed in this 2016 interview that he has a tattoo of his girlfriends face on his arm, per the article: “Soon after they were dating, and Davidson got a self-portrait that Cazzie drew when she was five tattooed on his arm”.
The ‘favorite emoji’ tattoo…I figured this one out i’m pretty sure. So I found this pete davidson fan account that was a fan of him before Ariana, and during the Cazzie relationship, and they posted this screenshot of pete commenting on cazzie’s IG:
and like, a lot of their posts about these two have that emoji in them:
and, this is the emoji he had tattooed:
Also, No, IDK why Miley got matching “we babies” tattoos with them LOL but i guess she did.
EDIT: reddit users like u/everyoneagrees have since told me that Miley and Pete talked about it on Jimmy Fallon. Pete mentions how it was a dark time in his life and Miley calls him out on how he got it lasered off. (Thank u guys for the info!!)
And then the tattoo about her name on his finger, I couldnt find any pics of the name, but I know I have the pic he posted soon after dating Ariana that showed Cazzie it was now covered up.
According to this article, the day after Pete “ended their 2 1/2 relationship over text”, he uploaded an Instagram photo that showed he’d covered several of the tattoos that he’d gotten in honor of her. Per the article:
“My name, which had been written in cursive across his ring finger, was now covered with black ink,” Cazzie said.”
The instagram photo in question:
This pic was posted on his IG on 5/17/18, which also confirms he “officially” broke it off with her on the 16th. This is the old link: https://www.instagram.com/p/Bi42rBTnl8w/?taken-by=petedavidson
Alright .. now that we have that out of the way, let’s look at Pete and Cazzie’s relationship. As we went over earlier, they started dating around the very end of 2015.
on May 23 2016: He attended an event where someone asked him about dating Larry Davids daughter, to which he said, “I just love her very, very much,” adding this about her father Larry, “He’s the sweetest man in the world, he’s the coolest. We get along really well.”
June-August 2016: According to this Complex article, Pete said he lived with Cazzie over the summer of 2016 during SNLs off season
October 2, 2016: Pete talks about his marijuana use, saying “My stomach would be in pain all day and I wouldn’t be able to eat, but then I’d smoke and I can eat and do my show. I wouldn’t be able to do SNL if I didn’t smoke weed. I wouldn’t be able to do anything, really. Me performing not high has gone awful. It’s awful for me, because I don’t feel well.”
Note: He was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease when he was 17/18 and uses it medically to help his appetite.
October 6, 2016: “He’s in love; he’s having the best time ever,” Velez says of Pete and Cazzie. “It’s really good to see him find that.” Note: Ricky Velez is Pete Davidsons best friend. 😄 Quote is from this article.
October 24 2016: Pete does an interview where he says, “Cudi is the best out of all of them.” He went on to explain his loyalty: “He saved my life. I would’ve killed myself if I didn’t have Kid Cudi. ”
Note: Around September & October of 2016, he started to have “regular mental breakdowns & blind rage”.
From Pete in this 2017 interview: “Around October or September last year, I started having mental breakdowns where I would, like, freak out and then not remember what happened after. Blind rage. I never really did any other drugs, so I was like, ‘I’m gonna try to go to rehab [and quit smoking weed]. Maybe that’ll be helpful.’”
“The 23-year-old comic made headlines earlier this year when he came out about his recent rehab trip and newfound sobriety. But since attracting attention with a now-deleted Instagram post in March, Davidson’s stayed mostly silent about the abrupt change from his pot-smoking ways — until now.”
Right. So March 6 2017, Pete posted on social media about being sober for the first time in 8 years(he was 23 at the time, so the first time he was sober since age 15). He also notes he was missing from SNL and social media. He writes:
“Just wanted to let you guys know I’m okay. I know I’ve kinda been missing, on social media and on the show. I quit drugs and am happy and sober for the first time in 8 years.
It wasn’t easy, but I got a great girl, great friends and I consider myself a lucky man. I’ll always be here for you guys, I promise. Remember to never give up hope because sometimes that’s all we got. We are a family and I appreciate all your love and support. It’s nice to be back in action ❤️.”
April 25 2017: He was at an event with Cazzie, and when asked about her, he told Entertainment Tonight, “She’s the most beautiful girl in the world, look how lucky I am. She’s so smart. Look how smart she is. She is a very, very wonderful lady. I’m very lucky. She’s very, very supportive.”
And she was asked what her father Larry thought, Cazzie said, “He really loves that I’m dating a comedian. He loves it because he feels like the only people he can talk to are people who also make jokes. It worked out very well.”
August 27 2017: Pete brings Cazzie as his date to the VMAs
August-Sept 2017: Cazzie is doing a web series and does an interview with Glamour. Of Pete being open on his mental health lately and how they decide what is & isn’t private, she says: “I’m definitely a more private person than he is. I don’t think he knows that you can be honest and not share everything. But I really do respect that about him. Also, he’s definitely way more famous than I am, so it’s not really a problem for me yet.”
Also, Pete has a small role in one of the episodes and Cazzie told Complex that his role was originally going to be a stranger she was going to try to cast from an internet post, but she was on the phone with Pete saying she was anxious to work with a stranger and then she said, “the next thing I knew he was flying from NY to LA for 24 hours for this tiny role in my silly web series because he’s the sweetest person alive.”
September 17 2017: Pete is at the Emmys and tells People magazine that he’s happy and healthy.
September 26 2017: Pete reveals his recent borderline personality disorder diagnosis in an interview. Some quotes from him here:
“I’ve been a pothead forever. Around October [or] September last year, I started having mental breakdowns where I would, like, freak out and then not remember what happened after. Blind rage. I never really did any other drugs, so I was like, ‘I’m gonna try to go to rehab [and quit smoking weed]. Maybe that’ll be helpful.’”
“I’ve been having a lot of problems. This whole year has been a fucking nightmare. This has been the worst year of my life, getting diagnosed with this and trying to figure out how to learn with this and live with this.”
He opens up about his mental health again with some jokes on SNL on October 8, 2017.
November 2017: This is probably unrelated but someone in r/DeuxMoi pointed it out – there is a brief like, 2 or 3 second clip in an SNL skit where Pete is wearing bunny ears that are reminiscent of Ariana at a masquerade ball:
Then sometime around January 20th, sometime the week before Troye Silvan performed on SNL, during SNL rehearsals…Pete is wearing what might or might not be Arianas sweatshirt. She later wears this sweatshirt to Wango Tango:
January 31 2018, it looks like Pete and Cazzie’s relationship maybe wasn’t doing great, because Pete posts a series of Instagram stories.
Here is what they said, per the article:
“Sending love and prayers to all those in need. You are not alone. Someone does understand you”
“Not everyone is fortunate enough to have access to health benefits. If it’s this tough for me I can’t imagine how tough it is for others that have a mental illness.
“I’m really sad and in insane pain. Nobody should have to live like this.”
“That’s why it’s important to vote. So people can get the help and the proper care they need.”
The article then says: “Davidson also shared a photo of the 23-year-old, who is Larry David’s daughter, holding his hand and kissing his arm.”
*record scratch* it was maybe this picture that we saw earlier:
But regardless he posted a picture of her, with the caption,
“Idk what I did to make you hate me so much but I’m sorry.”
He deleted all of these stories within 20 minutes of posting them… but again according to the article:
“A source exclusively told Us Weekly that the couple have not broken up.
“They weren’t fighting,” the insider said. “They were just joking as comedians tend to do.”
Davidson’s rep also confirmed to Us Weekly that the duo are still together.
And then we have the tidbits mentioned earlier,
April 30 2018, Pete confirms that he is still dating his longtime girlfriend Cazzie in an interview.
“You’re dating Larry David’s daughter, Cazzie,” host Joe La Puma stated, seemingly catching Davidson off guard. “Yes. I’m a very lucky guy,” Davidson replied.”
Then, on May 3 2018, Cazzie posted a pic with Pete that is definitely very couple-y, safe to say they’re still dating here:
Now that all of that has been covered, we’re going to continue with the LA Times article about Cazzie’s book, and specifically where she discusses her and Pete’s breakup in May 2018.
The article says that she “struggled to convince Pete that she really loved him, and she was fearful of ending things”, and her reason for this fear was stated by Cazzie herself below, along with the rest of the breakup details:
“Self-harm and suicide threats had come from him over trivial circumstances. It was incidents that would go from 0 to 100, and they were so momentarily urgent, like… the last minute of an escape room before the time goes off, except I’m the only one in the room. And all the clues are tricks,” she recalled.
Cazzie did eventually build up the courage to initiate a break, only to call him back days later and say she’d made a mistake.
But Davidson said he was “the happiest he had ever been,” and then he dumped her two days later in a text message.
The following day, she learned that he was with Grande. He’d uploaded images of himself to Instagram showing that he’d covered his Cazzie tattoos. She was devastated. On the plane to her sister’s college graduation, David was held by her dad as she “shook uncontrollably in his arms for the entire flight.” She curled up in the hotel’s bathroom, crying and sucking on her weed pens.
She woke up “screaming in agony,” her dad pulling her from the bed to stop her spiraling. “CAZZIE, COME ON!” Larry David told her. “YOUR ANCESTORS SURVIVED THE HOLOCAUST!”
Side note: Larry David’s reaction is sending me tf out LMAO😭😭 oh and also. “crying and sucking on her weed pens” is EXACTLY how I coped with the breakup of my first serious boyfriend back in like, 2017. So sis, I feel you LMAO.
Also there’s this article, which has some more info and again it confirms that 2.5 year dating timeline for them.
And .. ok. whew. To close out this part, here’s some other cute Cazzie/Pete pics:
Okay!!! That is all i have in me for tonight! Hopefully this timeline wont be confusing for anyone haha. I think it’ll all come together nicely at the end.🤞
PART 2 & 3:
Part 2 is a big segment that will deep dive into Mac and Nomi’s 7-year relationship timeline, from 2009 until 2016. This 7 year timeline breakdown is now up.
Nomi and Macs timeline is fully skippable if youre uninterested like I said earlier.
but I do not recommend skipping Ariana and Macs timeline if you want the full scope of things once we get to her and Pete. Why? because chronological order. Some stuff that happens during Pete and Ariana’s relationship makes more sense after being refreshed on the context of things that happened during her and Macs relationship, like the Manchester bombing for example.
Or if you just wanna jump right into Pete… we will go ahead and pick up where we left off.
Part 4: Ariana and Petes chaotic timeline, plus the rest of Pete’s chaotic dating life, compiled
so…the last timeline date we have is May 16 2018, when Pete publicly confirmed that he is no longer with Cazzie.
So then May 17 2018 as we discussed was the day that Pete posted this on IG:
From earlier: This pic was posted on his IG on 5/17/18, which also confirms he “officially” broke it off with her on the 16th. This is the old link: https://www.instagram.com/p/Bi42rBTnl8w/?taken-by=petedavidson
So also on May 17 2018,
Mac Miller gets DUI, is arrested with hit-and-run charges.
May 18 2018: Bossip is first to announce Pete and Ariana are dating, and ok. y’all. the article headline is sending me LMFAO:
Also on May 18 2018: a tattoo artist by the name of @ jonmesatattoos posts this on instagram, captioned “Did this crazy coverup last night on my boy”( the post was made on the 19th but since it says night before sooo were dating it as the 18th):
Sometime between May 18-May 20, 2018: Pete orders the engagement ring he eventually gives to Ariana.
Now here’s why I say this. All sources say the ring was custom ordered and took a full 2 weeks to make, and since he proposed on or around June 9, and Ariana was first seen wearing it on June 2, it had to have been ordered on or around the 19th.
May 20 2018: Ariana and Pete seen being cute backstage at billboard music awards, as seen by this pic Pete posted to IG on June 26 – it was taken backstage at Billboard, same outfit:
“Davidson was on hand to support Grande as she performed on Sunday at the Billboard Music Awards. “After Ariana’s performance, they were backstage and he had his arm around her,” an onlooker tells PEOPLE exclusively. “They seemed very lovey-dovey. He was hanging out with her and her friends with his arm around her. She seemed quite smitten.”
May 20 2018: Pete is wearing a “No Tears Left To Cry” sweatshirt during SNL goodnights. You can see him at :25. (thank you one more time to the user at r/DeuxMoi for this info!)
May 23 2018: Ariana goes off on haters/fans blaming her for Macs DUI. alludes to him not being able to keep his shit together, her having to babysit him, take care of him due to drugs etc as reason for the breakup:
Read Mac and Arianas timeline here.
May 24 2018: The next day,Pete also writes to haters/fans, talking about having borderline personality disorder and dating in the public eye:
May 30, 2018:
Pete posted a pic with Ariana in matching hogwarts outfits, caption is “the chamber of secrets is open,” Ariana comments, “You tryna slytherin.” 🥴🤒
May 31 2018:
Ariana debuts relationship with Pete on IG, captioned “i thought u into my life 💭 woah ! look at my mind 💡⚡️🙈”
Anddd our sis Cazzie hops on IG on June 1st with this:
And Mac’s longtime ex Nomi posts on May 31 2018 as well. You can read their full relationship timeline here.
The relevant section talks about her new relationship vs. her old one:
1. I’ve been having so much good sex since summer 2016. Can sex be consistently so good for like almost two years? Can I even say that at twenty-seven with a full-time job and my, like, reputation to consider? 😉
SIGH so despite him being really great in bed and really great in a lot of other ways I’ve withheld talking about my not-so-new-now-boyfriend because
a.) we live together and how super awkward when I write a post while he’s sitting right next to me watching Sports Center?
b.) he’s like a real life normal person with fam I see pretty regularly and who have the link to this blog and
c.) he doesn’t fucking suck so much so there’s not a ton to bitch about. I mean…there are things. Don’t get me wrong. Nobody’s perfect.
And apparently it’s just engrained within the male genetic code to not see or be bothered by your own mess. And apparently refilling the Brita after each use is a luxury reserved only for when company is coming over and the volume on the TV has to be turned up so far the neighbors can hear what we’re watching and I’M the bed hog just because I like body warmth and want to be CUDDLED TO SLEEP, GOD DAMNIT.
But like, he’s great.
And it’s weird because for a while I felt like since I wasn’t going through a shitty breakup, or living through a shitty relationship, I didn’t have much of value to say within this space.
Like there wasn’t much insight I could offer. But dude. That’s so not true. I’m learning so much more within a functional relationship, and it’s weirdly almost harder than a dysfunctional relationship. Because guess what I’m realizing?? I MIGHT BE THE DYSFUNCTIONAL ONE.
The version of this that she let stay on her new blog is very redacted, see here.
and then on June 2 2018:
So. we dont find this out until later, but Ariana is seen wearing her engagement ring for the first time when she performs at the Billboard music awards.
According to the ring maker, named Yuna, the ring took two weeks to make.
According to E!, Grande was first seen wearing the ring on June 2.(as shown above)
Now…. checking some dates here and, if everything we’ve aligned so far is correct, this means the latest Pete could have called Yuna about the ring is May 19, which is..
two days before the “casual” relationship was announced, three days after he ‘officially’ ended his relationship with Cazzie, two days after Us Weekly reported his split from Cazzie, and a week after he and Grande were seen hanging out at the SNL after party. Oh, and 12 days after they first kissed on May 7.
Had he already proposed at this point? Maybe. Not sure. We’ll get more into it in a sec.
Also on June 2:
London Reese, a NYC tattoo artist, posts these pics of Pete on his IG /IG story of new Ariana dedicated tattoos…
ALSO on june 2, Pete posts this of Ariana from the Billboard music awards:
June 7, Ariana posts this video on IG of her laughing at Pete talking about Harry Potter.
Also on June 7 2018: Ariana and Pete attend the Kids See Ghosts listening party together. Pete posts this on IG from the event:
Another pic from ross butler who ran into them that night.
Pete also got a “REBORN” tattoo on his hand after this.
Sometime between June 8-9 I think? the ‘official’ proposal happens...maybe.
Apparently, they were already telling everyone that they’re engaged at Robert Pattinson’s birthday party. Robert’s birthday party was June 9 2018. Since we saw her wearing it on the 2nd, I assume he showed her it as soon as it was ready. He also said in this article:
“The day I met her, I was like, ‘Hey, I’ll marry you tomorrow. She was calling my bluff. I sent her a picture [of engagement rings]. I was like, ‘Do you like any of these?’ She was like, ‘Those are my favorite ones,’ and I was like, ‘Sick.’”this was said on Aug 18 2018
So i feel like he may have given it to her before actually proposing. Or maybe he proposed on June 1. Or before then. But either way, they started telling everyone that they’re engaged at Robert Pattinson’s birthday party on June 9 2018. Also, we know that they FIRST met way back on SNL in 2014 so I’m thinking “the day i met her” was probably more or less him saying “the day we first hung out”, not the actual first day they met. IDK.
Also on June 9, Ariana declares she is now a pete davidson fan account on IG.
On June 15, Pete posted about it on instagram, with the caption: “u know what you’d dream it be like ? it’s better than that.” ariana commented on it, “so much better.”
Then two days later, June 17:
Pete and Ariana moved in together. Ariana let the world know this by posting an IG story of spongebob with a napkin a penny and like a bag of chips (i do not remember arianas post but i DO remember this spongebob episode)
On June 18, Ariana shared a clip of a song from her new album and showed that the name of it was ‘pete’. when asked by a fan if she seriously named the song after who it was about, she said “the truth is ☕️ i been the f*ck thru it and life’s too short to be cryptic n sh*t about something as beautiful as this love I’m in. so ǝʇǝԀ it is.” the song ends up actually being titled his full name, pete davidson.
on June 20, pete and ariana get matching tattoos that say “H2GKMO” – it means “honest 2 god knock me out”, i guess ariana says it a lot ? sources said its like a thing, idk. June 20 is also when her album becomes available for pre-order.
Then on June 21 2018 Ariana tells twitter how big pete’s dick is?
And….. amazingly, thats not the only “pop culture will never forget this” moment that happened on June 21.
The viral photo of Pete and Ariana with lollipops was also taken on this day.
You know what photo I’m talking about.
But in case you needed a reminder:
I should mention here that from around April 2018 onwards, Ariana is heavily promoting her upcoming album, Sweetener. Hence the pete question in the tweet above, referring to the song devoted to him. This is her fourth studio album, with her previous one being Dangerous Woman, released in May 2016.
So on June 22 or 23, Ariana posted a video of her straddling pete in bed, while she sang “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” from the Lion King.
Y’all. I cant find the fuckign video and i LOOKED. Like.
i searched for that shit for a HOT ASS MINUTE because that sentence i just typed? it literally feels like I created it using a word randomizer or some shit.
Peak fever dream. Heres another article about it. I bet its posted on an ariana fan account somewhere. someone find me it pls i need some confirmation this really happened LMAO
EDIT: several people on reddit have found the video for me i love yall and here it is:
Also on June 23, it appears that the insurance company decided to auction off Mac’s totalled vehicle from the DUI incident?
June 25: We find out ariana has pete as her phone background:
Also on June 25 a fan account posted this pic of them out and about that day:
and one of her fans commented saying he was flipping off her fanbase lol and ariana hopped in the comments:
Andddd June 26 was Arianas 25th birthday! Heres what Pete posted:
June 26/27: sksksjk i swear to GOD this entire saga is literally a fever dream. Pete and Ariana are seen singing Evanescence’s “Bring Me to Life” at a karaoke bar.
On June 30 we find out ariana got a tattoo of pete’s father’s firefighter badge number. (he passed away saving lives in the 9/11 tragedy when pete was 8)
July 2, Pete dyes his hair blonde. We find out through Ariana posting these two stories, followed by pete on IG captioning his blonde hair photo “big time adolescence”. ariana comments on it, “so sick. im so excited for u bye. come to bed.”
Between July 2-5 some bad taste jokes pete has made on SNL and at various stand-up shows resurface. particularly one about the Manchester bombing that happened at Arianas concert in 2017, where he said ariana must know how famous she is now, because “not even Britney Spears had a terrorist attack at her concert”.
On July 5 Ariana addresses the joke on twitter:
anddddddddd……..we’re only like 20% done with the coverage here. Take it or leave it for now. Itll be finished soon, promise!
Alright im back and im ready to finish this timeline.
First of all. We love a good deep dive crossover!!!!
July 9 2018, as you may remember from the deep dive that started all of this… The Justin/Hailey/Selena/KarJenners deep dive, Justin and Hailey had just announced their engagement on July 7 2018.
On July 9, Ariana speaks out on twitter to defend the pair:
July 23, 2018: Mac Miller is asked his thoughts on the engagement and the timing of it:
“yeah uhhhh its…. its strange, but not negative. We were together for two years. We worked through good times, bad times, stress, and everything else. And then it came to an end and we both moved on. And it’s that simple, you know?”
Also July 23, Pete deletes all his pics on IG after making a comment on an RIP post Ariana made to her grandfather:
and he says this on his story:
note: This was in 2018, and he reactivates it briefly after him and Ariana break up, but as of today it is still deactivated. I am writing this in 2022.
after this, a fan tweeted ariana saying something about how they noticed Ariana revived her old snapchat account. Ariana replied to them on twitter:
Then a fan replies to this:
The next day, July 24 2018, Ariana also deletes her instagram account.
But by August 2 shes back on IG and posting the tracklist for her album which is now 2 weeks from release. the tracklist includes the song dedicated to pete, “pete davidson”
August 16 2018 the album sweetener is released. the song about pete has lyrics that are the same as that one caption from when she debuted the relationship. the “woah look at my mind” stuff. also has a song called “better off”, ’ about being better off without a past love who she used to watch smoke and drink all the time.
Per the RapGenius page:
Ariana revealed on Twitter that “Better Off” was the first song she added back to the album tracklist. She further reiterated this on an interview with Zach Sang that she wasn’t going to originally put it on the album in fear of its honesty of the relationship at the time and its potential to go south.
The song finds Ariana realising that a relationship isn’t for her and that she’s “better off without him” as she’d “rather [his] body than half of [his] heart”. Hence, to “steer clear of any headaches to start”, she “dismisses” his propositions.
It has been speculated the track is about Ariana’s former boyfriend, Mac Miller, a relationship with whom she’s previously denounced as “toxic” and the editor’s notes for the album on Apple Music express similar sentiments saying “ she exits a toxic relationship in “better off”.
August 16 She went on Jimmy Fallon and talked about how she was going to marry Pete the first time they met.
On August 19 2018 Ariana and Pete attend the VMAs as a couple. They also ran across the whole paparazzi set up like little kids, this is cute, you can hear paps and employees all yelling at them for messing up a ton of their shots:
And…there is more detail on this in Mac’s section, but.
September 7 2018. Mac Miller passes away from an accidental overdose.
Also on Sept 7, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette publishes this article, they detailed a lot of little known stories about his first few shows and concerts in the area, and they also interviewed and talked to a lot of people who grew up with him in Pittsburgh. As they detail his career, they pause to give us this:
“I had seen him a few weeks ago in New York,” Ms. Leasure said in a text message.
“We wound up talking and catching up for close to five hours. He seemed truly at peace with his life.
Fully resolute about his past relationship (which he chose to end). Very optimistic about the future and his new album. Yes, somewhat anxious and self-conscious in the ways I knew him to be. But, clear eyed and clear headed. Not on drugs, at least at that moment, and according to him not on drugs habitually at all.”
So according to Nomi, Mac was the one who decided to end him & Ariana’s relationship. Was it because Ariana had kissed Pete after the Met Gala and she confessed/he found out — like i’ve said, end of the day we’ll never really know what happened there. But… all interesting to reflect on given the context we have now.
Nomi posted this later that night on the 7th:
And on her IG story:
September 8 2018, Ariana posts this black and white pic of Mac to IG with no caption and comments disabled.
September 10 2018, Nomi posts this pic of her and Mac sleeping together, captioned “Rest now 🌙”
September 14, Ariana posts a tribute to Mac on IG, its a video of her recording him beginning to tell a story. She captioned it:
“i adored you from the day i met you when i was nineteen and i always will. i can’t believe you aren’t here anymore. i really can’t wrap my head around it. we talked about this. so many times. i’m so mad, i’m so sad i don’t know what to do. you were my dearest friend. for so long. above anything else. i’m so sorry i couldn’t fix or take your pain away. i really wanted to. the kindest, sweetest soul with demons he never deserved.
i hope you’re okay now.
“Can I just say, this girl, she was like, ‘I want a pig,’ and an hour later, it was just there. You know what I mean?” Davidson said. “Like, I’m still trying to get a Propecia refill in the last two weeks. This chick got a pig in a f*cking hour.”
On Sept 17 2018, Ariana announced she was taking a break from public appearances and concerts.
on Sept 24, Pete does an interview with Howard Stern. Quotes from Pete here:
- asked about their intimacy/sex life, pete says:
”“It’s like I’m wearing V.R. glasses … It’s insane,” Davidson said with a laugh. “Any time we’re intimate I’m always apologizing and saying thank you. ‘You’re awesome for doing this, thank you so much,’”
- He also says, “I was jerking off to her before I met her!”
I feel like based off what he said… and the timing being so close to Macs death.. this interview might have been part of what made Ariana decide to end things? That interview was Sept 24.
On Sept 27, Ariana posts a series of tweets (to be read from the bottom to top)
On September 29 2018, Pete jokes on SNL about him and ari breaking up. Per the article:
“If we break up — and we won’t. We will. But we won’t. I’m kidding, but like in 10 years, God forbid if that ever happened, there will be a song called Pete Davidson, like playing in speakers at K-Mart and I’ll be working there.”
Davidson also joked he switched Grande’s birth control with Tic Tacs in a moment where several women in the audience could be heard saying “Oh my God.” He waits for the audience to die down then adds, “I believe in us and all, but you know, I just want to make sure that she can’t go anywhere.”
On October 7 2018 Pete goes off on SNL about Kanye, (this becomes relevant later) saying:
“What Kanye said after we went off the air last week was one of the worst, most awkward things I’ve ever seen here,” Davidson said. “And I’ve seen Chevy Chase speak to an intern.” As West performed closing the show, the cast lined up behind him, many of them (including Davidson, who was onstage until he thought, “I want a career! So I left,” as he explained) with their heads bowed; the rapper wore a Trump MAGA hat that, after the show, he said people had tried to “bully” him into forgoing.
“He wore it all week,” Davidson said, adding that no one had pressured West to take off the hat. “I wish I’d bullied you. I wish I’d suggested that it might upset some people, like your wife or every black person ever.”
“I know Kanye is saying, ‘This is the real me. I’m off the meds,’” Davidson went on. “Take them!” he encouraged. “There’s no shame in the medicine game. I’m on them. There’s nothing wrong with taking them,” he continued. “Being mentally ill is not an excuse to act like a jackass.”
October 8 2018: Nomi posts this video of her running and jumping into a hug with Mac, captions it, “you are missed.💔”
Side note here. Because I havent mentioned it here yet and Idk where else to put it. The song Congratulations by Mac is very obviously about Nomi. He talks about the apartment they had together in Brooklyn around GO:OD AM times, and how she was there before he became famous. she used to write tons of posts about the divine feminine way before the album came out, and basically gave mac the idea for that album.
On October 9 we find out Pete got his Ariana bunny ears tattoo covered up.
“I totally got it. I understood. She would even tell you this. I was like, ‘Listen, I get it, do whatever you’ve got to do, I’ll be here.’ I think what I said exactly was like, ‘I’ll be here until you don’t want me to be here.’”
“I pretty much knew it was around over after that,” he continued. “That was really horrible, and I can’t imagine what that shit is like. All I do know is that she really loved the shit out of him, and she wasn’t putting on a show or anything. That was fucked up. Prayers to his family and all of his friends.”
We find out later that Ariana was the one who ended things, in January 2019 Pete says at a standup show:
“When you get dumped,” Davidson said of Grande during the set, according to The New York Times. He paused because the audience began to cheer. “I’ll stop if you’re going to be stupid,” he continued.
”splitting from Grande “showed me how ugly people can get but also how cool.”
Annd as we find out later, Ariana wrote “sorry i dipped” next to pete’s entry in her thank u next vid (we’ll get to it) so this checks out.
Anyway so they called off the engagement on the 15th and then Pete cancels a comedy act that was scheduled for Oct 16th citing “personal reasons”. Authors note: it must really suck to be in this position lol like the whole world knew exactly what the “personal reasons” were there
Ariana speaks in 2019 about the end of their relationship, when she says that there were multiple versions of the song ‘thank u, next’ depending on how her and pete were that day:
“In my relationship, by that time, things were like, up and down and on and off,” she said. “And so I didn’t know what was going to happen and then, you know, we got back together so I had to make a different version of it, and then we broke up again, so we ended up going with that version.”
“There’s a version where I was getting married, and there’s a version where I’m not getting married“
she also mentioned that all exs were supportive of naming names in the song except Pete.
Okay so Oct 16 was the cancelled show.
On November 1 2018, Pete does a promo clip for SNL. He proposes to the guest singer in it and she awkwardly says no, he looks at the camera and says “0 for 3.”
……hours later Ariana seemingly responds, tweeting “for somebody who claims to hate relevancy u sure love clinging to it huh,” and followed up with a tweet saying, “thank u, next.” This is the first time we see ariana & the phrase ‘thank u, next” together. She deletes these tweets and then says “k thats the last time we do that”:
November 3, “thank u, next” the single is released, ariana calls out prominent past relationships by name including mac and pete.
also that night on nov 3.
Pete comments on it on SNL, saying “I know some of you are curious about the breakup, but the truth is it’s nobody’s business,” he said. “Sometimes things just don’t work out, and that’s OK. She’s a wonderful, strong person, and I genuinely wish her all the happiness in the world. And I’m still a great song though.”
Ariana liked a clip of this video on Twitter.
On November 6, Ariana wins Billboards Woman of the Year, in her acceptance speech she calls it “the best year of my career, and the year worst of my life.” Side note, i didnt know this was a thing lol. Why is Billboard picking women of the year? confusedLOL
On November 7 2018 we hear that Cazzie David and Mac Miller’s family have connected. From this article, about Cazzie talking to Mac Miller’s mother on social media:
“It’s still a relatively new friendship, and primarily limited to social media, but Cazzie and Karen think very highly of each other,” a source tells E! News. “Cazzie reached out to Karen with her condolences after Mac died and since then she and Karen have been exchanging messages.”
“Through their chats the two have discovered they have much more in common than just Mac, Ariana and Pete,” the insider adds. “Karen thinks Cazzie is an intelligent and sweet person.”
On November 8 2018, a video of Mac listening to Sweetener during a livestreem one week before her album was released, so after ariana was engaged to pete and about 1 month before he passed away…So this video is tweeted to Ari by a fan, Ariana tweets about it: “his voice and laugh. he was supposed to be here. thank u for finding this”
On November 30, Ariana releases the “thank u, next” music video. writes “HUUUUGE” and “sry i dipped” on Pete’s page, as well as “i love u always” .
December 3 2018 Pete posts this on his IG main grid, sayins hes kept his mouth shut and ‘hasnt mentioned any names'(unlike ari in her song i guess?): (trigger warning: suicide mention)
also mentions being bullied the last 9 months and his diagnosis.
On the same day, after this was posted, i guess some fans added ariana in a group chat and were asking her why she wasnt liking his post or showing support and she replied saying he has her blocked:
The next day, December 4 2018 Ariana posts a screenshot of his text post on her IG story along with the following text:
“I know u already know this but I feel I need to remind my fans to please be gentler with others, i really don’t endorse anything but forgiveness and positivity. I care deeply about Pete and his health. I’m asking you to please be gentler with others, even on the internet. i’ve learned thru my own mistakes not to be reactive on socials so i do understand.
but you truly don’t know what anybody is experiencing ever. regardless of what they choose to display on social media or how they may appear in public. i can promise u that. So please let whatever point you’re trying to make go.
i will always have irrevocable love for him and if youve gotten any other impression from my recent work, you might have missed the point.”
Nine days later on December 13, Ariana tweets about a kanye/drake feud currently occupying the twitter timelines, mentions her new song with miley cyrus. she was referring to a song that miley was releasing that night, “war is over/Happy xmas”
December 14 2018, Ariana releases a song called “imagine”, it is assumed to be about Mac. Here is what I know.
Ari says herself that this song is about “about an unattainable love that is “now (and forever) unreachable.”
Mac has a big tattoo that says “IMAGINE” on his bicep:
Some of the lyrics:
Natalie Weiner, who interviewed Grande for a Billboard cover story, also wrote in her article:
“Just before this interview, she was working on a new song, which, when she plays it for me later, I realize is about Miller.”
Another thing to note, Ariana sings in an extremely high falsetto at the end of “imagine,” often referred to as “whistle tones,” which she has rarely done since hitting the same notes in “The Way,” one of her songs with Mac.
On December 15 2018, so the next day, Kanye finds out about Ariana’s tweet the other day and calls Ariana out publicly and accuses her of using his mental health to promote her music:
and Ariana responds:
andddd then Pete decides to involve himself in this chaos, posting a notes app text post on IG applauding kanye , mildly ironic considering his kanye criticism like, two months ago.
Heres what pete posted(reminder, this is all still on Dec 15 2018):
Of course, this last post is very concerning, and pete is not texting people back or answering phones seemingly, because close friends and other celebs start tweeting telling him theyre here/’hit me back’ etc:
Ariana also publicly tweets to him (she is blocked remember), and she shows up at SNL’s studio. He refuses to see her. See below
to summarize, she says,
“man im so sorry i told a dumb joke. I really didn’t mean any harm. all i want everyone to be healthy and happy. so desperately. please. my god,”
“I’m downstairs and I’m not going anywhere if you need anyone or anything, i know u have everyone u need and that’s not me, but i’m here too.”
And as we saw above she also told a fan she has no way to contact him directly.
This is basically the end of their more direct interactions. There is still more to cover though.
On January 7 2019, Pete is seen flirting with Kate Beckinsale at a Golden Globes party:
“[The duo] were cozied up together outside on the back smoking patio for nearly an hour.”
“They were being very flirty together, they were sitting very close on the outside patio seating. Kate had her hand on his knee, and she kept laughing at all his jokes.”
Jan 19 2019 Ariana tweets on Macs birthday:
Fenruary 8 2019: thank u, next – the album – comes out. The song “ghostin” released here is most likely about Pete and Mac and how the relationship with Pete crumbled.
Authors note: this song… ive never heard it before but reading the lyrics made me so so sad for her. Like. Idk. the song is very plainly about a girl being in a relationship with someone, while loving and yearning for someone else. it feels very much like a reference to her being with pete while dealing with the love and loss of mac. the title of the song could also be considered a double entendre. she also said she begged her manager to take it off the album, and she refused to sing it on tour, begged manager to remove it from album..per Ariana:
‘It was a lot. It was too much, actually. I was literally begging Scooter [Braun] to take it off. And he was like, “You’re thinking too hard now. This is special and you should share it with everybody”.
Another song released with this album is “in my head“, which also feels like it might be about Mac, some lyrics:
If what Nomi said is true about Mac being the one to end things,, this last line makes a lot of sense. The chorus also sings about how she “never thought you’d leave me”, and as we see in the pete davidson deep dive, he repeatedly tells the world that she dumped him. a lot of people think this song is about pete, but i dont see it. But again, who knows.
So on February 2 2019, Pete is seen leaving one of his comedy shows with Kate Beckinsale, holding hands getting into a car together:
In February, the Grammies are happening. February 10 2019.
Mac was up for a grammy for his album, Swimming. It was his first grammy nomination. He was up against a few people. Cardi B won. As soon as Cardi B’s name was called, Ariana starts tweeting:
Basically, she was (understandably) angry that the recording academy went out of the way to invite mac’s still mourning parents if he wasnt going to win. She says his mom Karen was going to have a suit made for the event. says mac slept in the studio for 2 months straight recording the album.
On February 11 2019 the media picks up on a story that Cazzie David and Mac Miller ‘leaned on each other’ after the Pete Davidson Ariana relationship began last summer.
“‘Cazzie and Mac’s mom have become extremely close and talk almost every day,’ the publication’s source explained. ‘Mac’s mom loves her.”
We find out on February 12 2019 that Cazzie was actually with Mac Miller’s family before the Grammies.
Nothing more really comes of this until in December of 2021 we find out Cazzie has been dating and now lives with Mac’s brother, full name Miller McCormick. (Mac took his brothers first name and used it in his stage name). We find out here that they have been living with each other since February of 2020 according to real estate documents.
In July 2019, Ariana does an interview and talks about the thank u, next album, as well as Mac. The interviewer has several moments where they have to stop because Ariana burst into tears and then began over-apologizing for doing so. You can read the full interview here, and I’ll go ahead and give the main takeaways:
When asked about Pete:
“And then I met Pete, and it was an amazing distraction. It was frivolous and fun and insane and highly unrealistic, and I loved him, and I didn’t know him.”
When asked about the weeks and months following Macs death, her grieving, & how she wrote ‘thank u next’(the album):
”“It’s pretty all-consuming,” she says of her grief over Miller. “By no means was what we had perfect, but, like, fuck. He was the best person ever, and he didn’t deserve the demons he had. I was the glue for such a long time, and I found myself becoming . . . less and less sticky. The pieces just started to float away.””
”If I’m completely honest, I don’t remember those months [writing the album] of my life because I was (a) so drunk and (b) so sad. I don’t really remember how it started or how it finished, or how all of a sudden there were 10 songs on the board. I think that this is the first album … and also the first year of my life where I’m realizing that I can no longer put off spending time with myself, just as me.
In February 2020, specifically Feb 26, Pete’s Netflix special drops, he talks about Ariana and how she spray paints herself brown and more:
“I wasn’t gonna do jokes about this, but then my buddy told me, he’s like, ‘Yo. I recently heard that Ariana said she had no idea who you were, and she just dated you as a distraction.’
So now I just think it’s like, fair game. She has her songs and stuff and this is what I have. And you’re like, ‘Pete, this isn’t fair. You’re airing out dirty laundry. How could you do that? Where did she say this stuff? To her friends? In the confidence of her own home?’ No, she said it on the cover of Vogue magazine….”
“Can you imagine if I did that? My career would be over tomorrow. If I spray-painted myself brown and hopped on the cover of Vogue magazine and just started shitting on my ex?” (authors note: to recap, her words were: “It was an amazing distraction. It was frivolous and fun and insane and highly unrealistic, and I loved him, and I didn’t know him,”)
“And you’re like, ‘Well Pete, something had to happen to her, right? There had to be some repercussions, right? No, she won Billboard’s Woman of the Year. And I got called ‘butthole eyes’ by barstoolsports.com. So sometimes life is a little unfair.”
“My biggest fear is that I’m gonna get a shot in the back of the head by like, a nine-year-old with a ponytail. And the last thing I’m gonna hear is, ‘Hashtag canceled.’”
he also criticized his ex for implying that he has a big penis in her music video:
“She was like, ‘Yeah, it didn’t work out, but like, nice dick!’ I thought that was really weird, ’cause like, everybody was like, ‘What a nice girl. ‘”
“First of all, let’s take a step back. Can you imagine if I said that shit? Can you imagine if I was like, ‘Sorry it didn’t work out! Nice pussy though!’? That shit’s wack! “
“I didn’t like it, because it’s just simply not true. She has little, tiny little hands. She has very little hands. Everything’s fucking huge to her. So why, if she knows it’s not true, then why would she tell everybody what a great, big penis you have? Well, she did that — well, she’s a genius, remember this. She’s a very smart person, OK? She did that so that every girl that sees my dick for the rest of my life is disappointed. It’s genius.”
Andddd that is just about it for Pete and Ariana. Well, probably not. I cant promise I covered everything, I tried though!
Now to Pete’s other relationships. Besides Cazzie and Ariana.
2014-2015: Carly Aquilino.
So before Cazzie entered the picture, before Pete was even on SNL, when he was just a Wildin Out and Guy Code frequent on MTV, he met Carly Aquilino. He likely met her on the set of MTVs Guy Code, seeing as she was a main cast member on the sister show Girl Code.
Not a ton of detail on how long they dated but it seems like they were together in 2015 up until maybe September? or October?or maybe until he met Cazzie in October 2015 as we covered earlier. Not sure.
November 2015-May 2018: Cazzie David. Read above for their timeline.
May 2018-October 2018: Ariana Grande. Read above for their timeline.
January 2019-April 2019: Kate Beckinsale.
Okay so, we saw earlier that they were flirting in January, 3 months post-Ariana.
and we saw that they left a comedy show together in February.
So the month after Pete and Kate Beckinsale were seen leaving a comedy show together, he is seen kissing her at a a sports event on March 6 2019.
from the article:
According to one of Davidson’s comedy pals, this latest unexpected hookup is, at least in part, “a ‘f–k you’ to Ariana.”
However sources close to the comic said, despite the [20 year] age difference, “This is a real romance. They are really into each other. They’ve been trying to stay low key, but they can’t go anywhere without getting spotted.”
However, that didnt last long as they broke up by April of 2019.
August 2019-October 2019: Margaret Qualley.
He is single over the summer, and by August 28 2019 reports come out that he is dating Margaret Qualley, who recently had a big part in the Leonardo/Brad Pitt “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” film. Side note, she is seriously so gorgeous!!
They were seen in Venice, Italy together in August:
And they confirmed their dating on August 31.
October 2019-January 2020: Kaia Gerber.
Pete is really making the rounds because 5 days later, Oct 23, he is pictured leaving 18 year old model Kaia Gerber’s apartment. Apparently Pete did a runway walk for Alexander Wang in June 2019 and Kaia also walked that runway so they probably met at that time?
On November 6, Kaia attended an event wearing a necklace with the letter “P” on it?
And finally on November 12 we get confirmations that they are indeed dating.
November 17 2019 they allegedly showed a lot of PDA at an SNL afterparty.
November 23 theyre pictured being couple-y in Miami together.
On December 22 2019, Pete jokes on SNL about his holiday plans, implying he is going to rehab again, saying, ““I’m going on a little ‘vacation. The kind of vacation where insurance pays for some of it, and they take your phone and shoelaces. And you have roommates, but it still costs like $100,000.” He also made some off handed jokes about parents not wanting him to date their daughters.
Which is interesting because…
Also in December, on the 27th, concerns arise from Kaia’s parents about the relationship. Some takeaways:
- Cindy Crawford and husband Rande Gerber were pictured outside their daughter Kaia’s NYC apartment on Thursday
- Cindy looked extremely stressed as bystanders describe that Rande described a conversation he appeared to have had with their daughter’s boyfriend Pete Davidson
- A bystander said Rande was telling Cindy that the troubled comedian had ‘scratched out eyes’ and was ‘freaking out’
- Pete was reportedly seen around the apartment building at the same time
- Rande then told Cindy that Pete was nearby, saying: ‘You know he’s over there’.
- The supermodel reportedly replied: ‘Is it him over there?’
- Soon after, Pete was seen in his silver Lincoln SUV but his face was not photographed.
- It’s thought the tense conversation inside the apartment was likely between Pete and Rande.
- Later that evening, Kaia was seen walking into the apartment as she covered her face with a water bottle. She was makeup free and had on a dark jacket.
Some photographs from this:
By early January 2020, Kaia and Pete have confirmed they broke up. Pete says he is focusing on sobriety and getting his life back on track. Kaias parents are relieved according to sources.
February 17 of 2020, Pete confirms at a stand-up show that he did go to rehab recently.
On February 24 2020, Pete says of Kaia and the breakup, ““She’s very young, and I’m fucking 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 shit. She should be enjoying her work. It just wasn’t the right place or the right time at all.”
He also says of SNL. ““They think I’m fucking dumb. I’m literally painted out to be this big dumb idiot. I have a weird feeling in that building where I don’t know whose team they’re playing for really, if I’m the joke or I’m in on the joke.”” Authors note, damn. I know that feeling, it fucking sucks to feel like the people youre with regularly secretly mock you or whatever.
Pete seemingly remains single all of 2020, probably this has to do with COVID and quarantine. And him “getting his life back on track” as we saw him say earlier.

And I’m writing this on February 6, 2022, and I think thats all I have right now. OBviously if you are reading this you are aware there is a lot of divorce drama going on surrounding Kim and Kanye right now. So not sure when we will get the next Pete related update, and not sure if I will update this page again until we get a signifigant development, whether thats Kim and Pete breaking up or Kim and Pete getting engaged, one of those two things is going to happen regardless so we’ll see!
