Kate Beckinsale & Pete Davidson are over after about four months together

People really had strong feelings about Kate Beckinsale and Pete Davidson when they first started happening earlier this year. For the most part, those strong feelings were “ew” and “NO” and “why girl why.” But there was genuine interest and Kate and Pete definitely “performed” their relationship for us. But they haven’t been seen together recently, which caused People Magazine to announce a few days ago that Kate and Pete were “slowing things down a bit.” Well, as it turns out, they slowed things down to the point where they just broke up completely.

Was it because he bought a house with his mom? “Saturday Night Live” star and comic Pete Davidson, 25, and actress Kate Beckinsale, 45, have split.

The improbable showbiz couple that was Deckinsale has sadly cooled things off after just a few months of dating, sources confirmed to Page Six. One insider said that while the age difference wasn’t a problem for the pair, Davidson’s public lifestyle was.

“Even though Kate has been in Hollywood for a long time, she struggled with the attention on her relationship with Pete. He lives his life with his heart on his sleeve.”

Despite a very public makeout session with Davidson at a hockey game, Beckinsale — who got together with him at the Golden Globes in January — told the LA Times, “I’m surprised by the interest. I’ve never been in this position before — never dated anybody who comes with their own bag of mischief.”

The dealbreaker wasn’t their age difference or the difference in their life experiences, or that she’s a beautiful movie star and he’s a young comedian famous for getting engaged to Ariana Grande. No, none of that. It was because Kate couldn’t handle HIS fame? What in the world is that? It’s far more likely to me that Kate just cooled things off because she was over it in general. She had her fun. She was the “cool cougar” with the young, funny boyfriend and now she’s done with that. At some point she looked at herself and thought “why am I doing this again?”

    Or maybe HE dumped her.

  2. Jen says:

    This puts the YAY in Friyay. It’s about time!!

  3. Pete Booty Jig says:

    Thanks for the update. I was thinking about them on Easter Sunday.

  4. AnnaKist says:

    I am shocked. Shocked, I tell you.

  5. Lucky says:

    I follow her on Insta and her personality seems to be in line with his, goofy, self deprecating and teenager-ish, so I wasn’t surprised with this pairing.

  6. Miss M says:

    I am truly sad about this. True love is dead. Dead!!!

    • Zapp Brannigan says:

      I am currently slowing sliding down a wall while Mariah Carey yodels out “Without you” because love is dead!

      🎵No I can’t forget this evening or your face as you were leaving
      But I guess that’s just the way the story goes🎵


  7. Lena says:

    She lives in LA he lives in NYC. That right there creates distance that a new relationship can’t take.

  8. Lisa says:

    Not surprised.

  9. Scarlett says:

    Oh no, say it ain’t so. Life has no meaning anymore. Can’t these two kids make it work, if they can’t, who can?

    I have to say I find something oddly vulnerable and adorable about Pete and thought she was going to chew him up and spit him out, am glad it’s over.

  10. Chaine says:

    I kinda thought she was just using him to get attention to promote her Amazon show.

    • Lisa says:


      and I think I or we were right. She hasn’t been in the press or news like this in .. EVER

  11. Paleokifaru says:

    I don’t think the attention is necessarily the same thing as fame. It seems to me to be describing a generational difference in how they live their lives. Number one, makeout sessions in public are, generally, something done by the young of any generation. And two, there is a very big generational difference in how social media is used and what people are comfortable with putting out there. Individuals may be exceptions to those trends but even I, a close to non existent user of social media, can see the bigger generational differences in what is public vs private.

  12. Lucia says:

    I’m still confused what Kate saw in Pete in the first place.

    Half of the time the guy looks like he hasn’t showered in 2 weeks.

  13. Lala11_7 says:

    From personal experience…I’ve found it takes about 90 days for the “dickmitzied” spell to break…and about 30 days to get the hell out…

    So yea…this tracks right….

  14. Kitten says:

    I just get the vibe that Pete is really extra. Women 40 and over have little-to-no patience for guys that are always OTT and we quickly burn out on that shit. I’m speaking from personal experience here because I’ve always dated younger than my age & I’d usually give them the “thank you, next” treatment when they started to get too clingy. It happens.

    • Christina says:

      Good theories, Lala and Kitten. Dickmitization doesn’t last for ever, thank goodness.

    • Valiantly Varnished says:

      I see the exact opposite. Kate strikes me as the type who LOVES drama and attention. She’s a Leo! Lol. What I think the REAL issue is is that she was using this as free PR for herself and her show. They started dating right before the show premiered and it’s ended pretty much since the show has been airing – and getting terrible reviews and no traction. Couple that with yje fact that they love on different coasts (Kate in LA and Pete in NYC) and it’s a no-brainer that it’s over.

  15. nola says:

    Sounds more like this was a relationship intended to drum up PR for her new Amazon show. (With a side of “Let me check out Pete’s BDE that Ariana so kindly confirmed is true.”)

  16. RoyalBlue says:

    This was a pure PR relationship arranged for a few months. I never took them seriously. Yawn and next.

  17. Kath says:

    “She struggled with the attention on her relationship with Pete.”

    Oh please – she LOVED the attention! This is the woman who turns up at the opening of an envelope and tongue kisses her toyboy so it can be shown on the big screen at a basketball game. Vom.

    I don’t know what happened to Kate Beckinsale, but she’s regressed in age to the point that she seems to think she’s her daughter’s contemporary.
