Pete Davidson & Kaia Gerber got friendly for the paparazzi in Miami this weekend

Pete Davidson and Kaia Gerber attend a wedding in Miami!

Kaia Gerber turned 18 years old in September. She and Pete Davidson apparently started dating in October. And like all of Pete’s relationships, this seems to be moving crazy-fast. Pete and Kaia went from “dinner in New York” (where they both live) to a weekend in upstate New York a few weeks later, and now they’re already so coupled-up that they went to Miami for what appears to be a nice holiday, and they were each other’s dates for a weekend wedding. Throughout it all, they’ve been getting pap’d regularly together. It’s a lot for a relationship which is probably two months old.

These are photos of Kaia and Pete in Miami this weekend. They were photographed making out for hours by a hotel pool. It feels very Shawn Mendes-Camila Cabello with all of the posing for the paparazzi. Then on Saturday night, they went to a friend’s wedding – I was assuming that the friend would have been Pete’s friend, but no – apparently, Kaia has friends old enough to get married?

People Magazine noted that Pete recently turned 26 in mid-November, and Kaia was there to celebrate with him. She even picked up his cake and brought it to 30 Rock. Part of me thinks that they’re probably at the same maturity level and that it kind of works. But another part of me is like “wow, Kaia is very young to be involved in this kind of pap-friendly romance.” Ah, well. It is what it is.

    I wonder how her parents are taking this. First, a f*cking moron son with a DUI, and now an 18 year old daughter loved up with a 26 year old dude who can’t stay single for more than a week.

    • Mia4s says:

      Her parents prioritized her becoming a high fashion model while underage, no small part through nepotism, above school or giving her the opportunity to accomplish something great or at least something truly her own. This is exactly the kind of relationship I’d expected her to end up in. They reap what they sew.

    • vanna says:

      I really don’t think they care. Also Cindy, then 25, married Richard Gere who was 13 years older than her. Kaias parents let/made her work from 15, in an industry where she is surrounded by adults. These celebrities have other measures of normal behaviour and this seems mild and uncontroversial to me anyway. There’s a pattern und it says they’ll be over in a few months.

      • ME says:


        Yeah but parents don’t usually want you to make the same mistakes they did. I think since Kaia is 18, the parents have no control anyways. I highly doubt they are ok with this relationship. I don’t know any parent that would be…sorry.

    • boredblond says:

      She’s learned from her parents and their friends how to work the press and the perks of celebrity

    • Ravensdaughter says:

      It’s may be one of those situations where the parents have to put up with this-fiasco-until it passes. If they get on her case, Kaia will stick even tighter to Pete.
      I hope Kaia has reliable birth control.

  2. Keekee says:

    He will be dumped by December.

    • LakeMom says:

      Can someone please explain to me what the hell any woman could see in this guy? I don’t get his appeal. Seriously.

      • Anna says:

        He treats women like queens which I actually agree with what he said about that. I remember fondly the very few (2?) relationships I had where a man treated me like a queen and it set a standard. Plus apparently he’s hung. Plus he seems fun and sweet, perhaps some chalk that up to a disorder but I see the close relationship with his mother, suffering tragic loss of his father at a young age, there is a kind of attentiveness to women, a gentleness, perhaps?

        I know everyone can’t stand him but honestly, I think he’s pretty harmless and no one seems to be leaving him in tears.

      • TheRickestRick says:

        I agree about the gentleness, I imagine there’s a very tangible vulnerability to him which can actually be really attractive. I get the feeling he very much treats women with respect as well.
        Also, maybe it’s a simple as he makes them laugh. Real hard. A guy who can make me laugh really hard is the biggest panty dropper!!

      • Pree says:

        Anna, you think he treats women like queens because that’s what *he* says. May be some truth to it, but what we see is a pattern of brief tabloid relationships after his split with a mega famous singer. None of them have come forward post-break to talk about how amazing he treated them. Ariana was actually encouraged by the media to dump him because he was very careless in the way he spoke about her. It’s amazing to me how certain women just believe anything that comes out a mans mouth if he seems sad or is positioned as a victim enough.

      • Pree says:

        double post, whoops

      • Pree says:

        TheRickestRick, last year there were a great deal of publications that detailed the very disrespectful way he spoke about his “fiancee”: for instance, sympathizing with the guy who groped her on national TV, calling her a “thing”, a “prize”, talking about making her birth control fail so he could trap her, bringing her up on national TV weekly when she was in hiding due to tragic events. She clearly didn’t appreciate it, as she broke it off when it started getting bad. Was he joking? Very likely, but it was the furthest thing from what we assume a man who treats women with respect does.

  3. Michael says:

    I do not see what Kaia has to gain except maybe freaky sex. Pete seems to only want women who bring him attention which is a little creepy. But she has a filthy rich father and a mother who has been through all of this so I guess she will be fine

    • Gingerbread says:

      I think she sees the fact that Ariana grande dated him and had such a public relationship. Now she gets to have that slice of fame too. We wouldn’t be talking about her new bf if Ariana hadn’t.

      • Jas says:

        As weird as it sounds I think you’re right, it’s like trickle-down publicity from all the attention they got over a year ago.

    • emmy says:

      I mean… let’s not knock the freaky sex. Every girl should have that at least once.

  4. aang says:

    Whyyy? He is so pale, and skinny, and gross looking. He looks like the boyfriends that my single mom tenants have lurking around. The ones I eventually have to get no trespassing orders against after they get violent and won’t leave even though they aren’t on the lease.

    • Erinn says:

      Hahhaha, I’m like 99% sure he has a deeper complexion than I do. So the pale part isn’t a problem to me 😂

      I get why he’s not peoples’ cup of tea, but I have a soft spot for him. I find he can be really funny (not always, but when he is it’s usually pretty good), and I like self-deprecating humor I guess. To my knowledge there’s no allegations of him being physical with anyone, so at least there’s that. I do know what you mean, though.

      Off topic, but I LOVE her dark blue and white dress – she looks great in it. With that dress and the bob, I think that’s the prettiest I’ve seen Kaia look.

    • Bettyrose says:

      Probably part of the appeal is he seems loyal a and adoring (on his way to being psycho & stalkery).

    • Sayrah says:

      Lol! That’s very descriptive and incredibly accurate ⭐️

    • Joanna says:

      Omg, that describes his appearance perfectly!

    • Kosmos says:

      I don’t see them as a couple, no, but it’s happening anyway. I don’t see what she is attracted to, so it must be (that thang) or his amazing personality ?!? I don’t see this lasting long though. She’s 18, so maybe she will go through lots of boyfriends before she reaches maturity.

  5. Stef says:

    Gross. I just find him repulsive, especially knowing he’s gone with so many women recently.

    Weird that he dated a mature woman in her 40′s and also a teenager. Ich, gross.

  6. naomipaige99 says:

    Dude certainly gets mad chicks. He just can’t seem to hold on to them for long.

  7. Tiffany says:

    Nope, I am side eyeing the hell out of Pete for this one. 18 is not the magical number where we think we will not call you on your crap even it Cindy and Rande won’t.

  8. Mstew says:

    SNL had a show this Saturday, why was Pete given the weekend off to do this wedding?

    • Meg says:

      Yes I wonder that too. They seem to be fine capitalizing on his fame outside of the show
      as he talks about it on the show, which makes SNL look sad IMO

      • deezee says:

        I agree. He is rarely in sketches anymore and is often just used during weekend update. I think SNL just keeps him around to get publicity as he seems to be the only cast member that is getting headlines.

    • Kate says:

      I didn’t know that was something worth caring about enough to warrant a complaint? I’ve seen people be hard on the kid, but this is ridiculous. No wonder he refuses to have social media anymore.. people pick apart the most trivial sht

      • Mstew says:

        I actually think this is the most interesting part of the story. Pete is with her because he’s famous from SNL. If he’s the guy delivering lunch to her photo shoots I can’t see him getting her number. And I’m pretty sure that if Kaia had missed a modelling gig to hang out with Pete then we’d be hearing about it.

        SNL is a tough gig. They work on a three weeks on, one week off schedule. On work weeks they start on Monday and work through to the live show on Saturday with an all-nighter to write sketches on Tuesday. The cast is there for all of that.
        He already missed a few shows at the start of the season and as Meg said, they then put him on the show to talk about his personal life. It’s virtually unheard of for a cast member to miss show like this without a statement from NBC.

        Pete’s career is far more important than whoever it is he’s dating. He’s flawed and emotional and seems fragile. I don’t think it is trivial to wonder about his job and be concerned for his long term health.

  9. Other Renee says:

    It will end by the end of the year. They both look great in that going-to-wedding photo, I’ll give them that.

  10. Silas says:

    I hope Kaia knows it won’t last and is okay with that and just having some fun.

    Pete is gross for going after an 18 year old. And he should focus on his career more because at this point the attention he gets is for who he dates rather than his comedy.

    • ME says:

      I think he gets a kick out of people being amazed at how easily he is able to date beautiful women. It’s like an ego thing it seems. Has he ever dating a girl who was not that attractive? I don’t think so…they are always extremely attractive. I think this is why he NEVER keeps his relationships private…he is always super public with them.

    • SKF says:

      When I was 18 I didn’t WANT my relationships to last! I was just having fun. A fling here; a hot, emotionally unavailable guy there… hopefully she’s the same! I think the time for getting inappropriate guys out of your system is when you’re 18-23.

  11. Meg says:

    The picture of them making out open mouthed was on people and I think radar this weekend and ugh why have I now seen this guy stick his tongue in at least two different womens’ mouths? Hes doing it when he knows he’s being photographed which is immature IMO

  12. Kate says:

    Team Pete. No Judgement

    • jenner says:

      I think he means well and he’s living the life. Hats off.

    • stormsmama says:

      he must have a magic touch-
      but also lets not forget that famous gals all want known quantities and he’s been with enough now that many want to be a part of that list bc it must be good

  13. Jess says:

    I’m sure Kaia is just having some harmless fun, but if she was my kid I’d really really stress the importance of safe sex in this situation. Pete’s always joking about his STDs and whether it’s true or not, better safe than sorry!!

    I don’t think Pete’s a bad guy, honestly. He’s actually pretty funny on SNL sometimes (a show that is about as unfunny as possible…) His dad died in 9-11 and he suffers from Crohn’s disease (hence his often pale and sallow appearance). I think women are drawn to him because he’s funny and charming and then they bail because he’s got a lot of emotional and substance abuse issues. Anywho, I’m with the majority of the posters in saying it’ll probably last until the end of the year.

  14. Valiantly Varnished says:

    Im not surprised Kaia has friends old enough to get married. When someone so young is working like an adult it stands to reason that all of their friends would be older than them. And that THEY would act like an 18 year-old going on 25. I will forever judge Cindy Crawford as a mother for throwing her minor child into modeling KNOWING what that industry is like for young girls. Perhaps she thought being Cindy Crawford’s daughter insulated her but that is HIGHLY debatable.

  15. MangoAngelesque says:

    Well, it is getting to be “cuffing” season, so I imagine they’ll make it through that and no further. So maaaaaybe through New Year’s, but I can see NYE as being the “I’m free!” celebration.

  16. WM says:

    I assumed this wasn’t a real relationship – he needs a reputation rehab and she is looking to raise her profile.

  17. Mumbles says:

    I always thought Cindy was one of the smart ones – the PR about her was always, she’s brilliant, she was an engineering student at Northwestern when she was discovered. So the way this has all gone with her daughter surprised me. They don’t need the money. I would have thought Cindy would want her to go to school and let her do modelling as a side gig or after college. (Yeah I know the fashion industry has an almost criminal obsession with youth, but she could have been a print model).

    It’s funny how the gossip was, Andie McDowell was not happy with her daughter dating him and shut that down as soon as she could talk sense into her.

    If I were one of Pete’s SNL colleagues I would be kind of pissed.

    • Tourmaline says:

      Yeah, Andie McD sounds like much more of a sensible mama than Cindy.
      Part of Cindy pushing Kaia out there as a model at a very young age is down to Cindy’s vanity and insecurity about aging. It’s obvious in so many of the interviews she’s done and also how she has messed with her face over the years. She wants to be in the fashion/beauty world mix and now she is there with her daughter, and she’s loving the narrative that Kaia is a deadringer for her.

  18. Lucy says:

    I’ve recently come to realize that most of my favorite celebrity couples are those who don’t hide their relationship at all yet don’t really feel the need to shout from the rooftops that they’re together either.

  19. GenX says:

    He certainly isn’t attractive but I don’t think he’s a bad person. Clearly his personality is winning him dates. And as a fellow Crohn’ s sufferer I have to admit I am Team Pete😉

    • Kate says:

      Me too, I have ulcerative colitis and it makes my eyes and skin look terrible. It’s not easy to live with, and combined with his history/mental health, and the way he’s always judged i’d be pretty checked out too. I can’t blame the guy for finding ways to laugh at himself because everyone else seems to be anyways. I loved when he brought his mom on snl for Mother’s Day, I thought he was so funny… and I love that he bought a million dollar house for his mom, and just lives in the basement able to laugh at the way people react to that too like he’s just some loser living with his mom… and he doesn’t even care to correct people he just laughs at himself. He took care of his mom first, and he’s already said she hasn’t dated since his father died. He seems like a good kid with strong family values just figuring out himself and life. Nobody’s perfect. Doesn’t seem like he has a violent bone in his body.. the worst complaint is that he loves too much and how sad is that..

  20. Savannah says:

    I don’t know why but everytime I see him I see a lost little kid. I feel like he has some deep embedded sadness. Like it feels like he’s trying to destract himself from what’s really going on inside him with all these “relationships”.

  21. NotSoSocialButterfly says:


  22. Jas says:

    It BEARS REPEATING that he was hooking up with her when she was a minor, so he is a creep, end of story. This is also like the third time he has specifically done a “candid” photo shoot with his tongue on someone. Can they just take their publicity and like, go back to WORK or something?

    • tcbc says:

      THANK YOU. It’s incredible how much leeway people are willing to give mediocre white men. I don’t care if he has sad eyes, the man is a creep.

    • Erinn says:

      Were they hooking up when she was a minor though? He was dating Margaret Qualley until mid-late October of this year. Kaia turned 18 in September. The timeline doesn’t add up unless he was also cheating on whatever partner he was with when this supposedly happened. He’s been pretty much a serial dater since Ariana, so I’m just not sure where he’d have the time.

      • Jas says:

        He left the Wang show with her last spring, everyone saw them. Multiple gossip sources (including one site I frequent) were discussing how they were seeing each other on the low, where exactly in NY they were hanging, etc. Even if it was on the up and up I have actually made acquaintance with dudes in their mid-20s who “make friends” with underagers and then swoop in as soon as they have a birthday. They’re trash, too.

  23. Charfromdarock says:

    It may technically be legal but it’s still gross.

  24. Mar says:

    They look good together

  25. Cara says:

    I just don’t get it. How does this dude get these beautiful hookups? He is not attractive and seems very manic and just off. This one especially weirds me out because she is sooo young!! What is that girl doing going to different cities with this crazy guy. She
    May be 18, but she is still a dumb kid in my book. Where are her parents??

  26. A says:

    I’m not sure if I buy this, seems like a fauxmance to me. Being a Cindy Crawford lookalike is not enough for Kaia to make it into the big league so they are putting some PR effort into this IMO.

  27. Monette says:

    This decade’s John Mayer. He dates way out of his league, hot women go crazy over him and nobody understands WHY? How?

    • FrenchGirl says:

      Good sex and tale tee musician is the answer

    • tcbc says:

      John Mayer could at least play the guitar. Davidson is allegedly a comedian, yet he never gets attention for his work, only for his girlfriends (and his mental health episodes.)

      • Pree says:

        That’s the main difference, tcbc, yes. I won’t speak to the mental health part, but Pete doesn’t take his job seriously. While everyone is sticking to a brutal rehearsal schedule he is out on the town getting spotted with an 18 year old model.

  28. Bia says:

    He often looks pale and unwell.

  29. Anoni Mus says:

    Sorry to be gross, but he was literally inside Andie Mc Dowells daughter a month ago and Kate Beckinsale three months ago. He’s a man whore and he squicks me out. Poor Kaia I think she’ll regret this.

    • CharliePenn says:

      This comment is so wrong to me. The way you refer to him being with women is so debasing and soulless. Why?
      What’s wrong with sex with three different partners in three months? Three weeks even? People’s bodies are their own to do what is right for them. Not everyone attaches a stigma to the choices a person makes with their sex life. I certainly don’t. Speaking as a woman who has had only three partners in a lifetime, I can still see that for many people having different partners, even frequently, is a part of life and it’s no reason to judge. Everything has been consensual, according to all parties, and so to judge as if he is dirty or something sounds very wrong.

      And just don’t go around talking about who is “inside” of whom, unless you want to sound very weird about sex and really remove any of the human, loving, spiritual aspect of sex.

  30. Joanna says:

    I am amazed by how much action he gets! I can’t think of any other guy who has publicly dated so many women in such a short time. I don’t think it’s necessarily a sign that he doesn’t want a commitment. I feel he falls for a woman easily, showers her with affection etc, they get weirded out by it and dump him. Sadly, ime as a woman, we often say we want a gentleman but when we get one, we dont respect them because they are too nice.

    • CharliePenn says:

      He may even take it too far. He has been open that he has borderline personality disorder. He probably does what’s called “love bombing” and becomes overly attached and the women have little choice but to end things.
      My mother has this disorder. Her presentation is much more abusive and much less self aware than Pete seems to be. Like any disorder it’s a spectrum. But what you said is what the disorder can lead people to do: cling so hard they push people away. I wish him happiness and I hope in time and with therapy he can find balance and have a lasting relationship.

  31. Penelope says:

    I dunno. He seems like kind of a doofus, but I gotta say he would check a lot of boxes for a fun little fling: he’s funny, allegedly hung like a horse, super available, extremely affectionate, likes his mom, has a good job and will take you nice places. I’m fresh out of a crappy marriage, how do I get ahold of Pete? He will be on the market again soon enough and it’s only going to be a small window. I need some huge wang and a bunch of laughs.

  32. Tuntmore says:

    So over Pete Davidson. If we stop giving him attention, will he go away?

    I’ve dated two guys with borderline personality disorder in my life. One was violent, and the other wasn’t. But both relationships were full of love-bombing, push/pull behavior, boundary-pushing, and endless drama.

    I don’t envy any woman who gets sucked in by Pete’s charismatic love-bombing. Obviously he’s not a good boyfriend (look at how he talked about Ariana). His relationships will continue to crash and burn until/unless he decides to seriously work on himself.

    I also don’t think he’s funny, but that’s a totally separate gripe, lol.

  33. Sara says:

    I didn’t realize he was only 26! Here I am thinking he is in his 30s. 18 and 26 isn’t as bad as some. Leo is 44 and dating a 21 or 22 year old!
