- Pete Davidson seemed to talk about his relationship with Kaia Gerber last night, saying everyone wanted to “punch [him] in the throat” because of it.
- He also hinted that he’s having some mental health struggles.
Sorry to do this to your morning, but I’m here with an update on Pete Davidson and Kaia Gerber’s relationship. Previously, both the Saturday Night Live star and the 18-year-old model have stayed pretty quiet about their relationship—ya know, besides being spotted holding hands and heavily making out poolside. It seems like the two have been dating since October, but honestly, who knows!
Anyways, Pete decided to share some of his relationship feels on SNL last night, during “Weekend Update” with Colin Jost. After Pete comes on, Colin asks him, “Dating anyone?” And Pete replies, “Yeah, and it’s not fair, Colin. You get to date a famous woman and everyone’s delighted, but when I do it the world wants to punch me in the throat, what’d I do?” referencing Colin’s fiancée Scarlett Johansson and his own relationship with Kaia.
Pete goes on to joke, “If I’m your type of guy that your daughter—or mother—is into, then trust me, I’m the best-case scenario. There are a million guys who look like me and I’m the only one with a job. It’s like me or Tyga.”
Later in the bit, Pete, who has previously been open about his mental health struggles, implies that he’s checking himself into a mental health facility. When Colin asks, “What are you doing for the holidays?” Pete replies, “Oh, I’m going on little ‘vacation’…You know the kind of vacation where like insurance pays for some of it, and they take your phone and shoelaces. And you have roommates but it still costs like $100,000.”
So if you see Pete Davidson on the street, er, maybe don’t punch him in the throat and instead be just nice—clearly he’s going through something. Feel better, Pete!
