Pete Davidson moved out of the home he purchased with his mom

When Pete Davidson appeared on Weekend Update on Saturday Night Live in February, he told Colin Jost he needed to make some changes in his living situation. The joke was:

In some ways, I like the pandemic Valentine’s because it’s the first time being alone wasn’t my fault. I spent the night eating chocolates and watching a movie with my mom, which is why I’m officially moving out of the house. One of us has to go.

At the time, we thought it was just Pete playing Pete for SNL, but it turns out that he was serious. Pete has moved out of the home he purchased with his mom, Amy, in 2019, and into his own place.

Pete Davidson has officially left the nest.

The Saturday Night Live star, 27, has moved into a place of his own two years after buying a home with his mom, Amy.

“I just moved out of my mom’s house,” Davidson said in a recorded video call shared on TikTok over the weekend.

The comedian added, “I’m fully out. I got a pad.”

The brief clip showed his living area had tall windows, a large television and a few pictures. Reps for Davidson and SNL did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment on his move.

Pete talked about moving in with his mom on Jimmy Fallon back in April of 2019. At that point, Pete and Ariana Grande had broken off their engagement and he and Kate Beckinsale had probably moved on from whatever their romantic entanglement was. So the world was fascinated in equal parts with his dating life and why he moved in with his mother, especially when he was dating women like Ariana and Kate. It always sort of made sense to me. Pete seemed to be spinning a little bit after he split with Ariana. That relationship was such a whirlwind and happened *right* after his long-term relationship with Cazzie David ended, so I think he needed a little grounding at the time. He’s been pretty upfront about his BPD and I think moving in with his mom was a positive step for his mental health. Plus, when I saw his basement space in the short Netflix special he filmed, it had plenty of independence, the same as if he’d been renting an apartment. And Amy made him dinner when he wanted so – bonus!

But now he’s got his own place. Congratulations. Maybe they both were ready. As the excerpt said, we don’t have any more info, this new place could be two doors down for all we know. The call mentioned in the article was a FaceTime call and Pete just happened to be entering his place as the call was happening. It doesn’t outright say he stayed on Staten Island but come on – he crowned himself The King of Staten Island, he couldn’t move to Ithaca and expect his subjects to remain loyal. I wonder if the new castle has anything to do with impressing his new Duchess, Phoebe Dyneor.

    I don’t know how he deals with Staten Island, it’s MAGA central, way more than even Long Island, which is no liberal paradise. And I know he’s not MAGA, he has a Hillary Clinton tattoo. I like to think he moved into Manhattan. Or Brooklyn.

    • SlipperyPeople says:

      Brooklyn hipsters can be just as nauseating as MAGATs. Maybe he wants to stay close to his family and not pay for overpriced Manhattan real estate.

    • Ann says:

      He grew up there, right? So it’s home, I guess, and it’s not like he can’t pop over to Manhattan or Brooklyn whenever he wants to.

  2. Sue Denim says:

    I have a soft spot for him, seems like a sweet guy who’s had some hard times, wishing him well.

    • Elle says:


    • whatWHAT? says:

      me too. I think he’s so funny, like he’d probably be a hoot to hang out with.

    • Joanna says:

      Me too, he seems like a nice guy to me

    • L4frimaire says:

      He’s grown on me as a performer and seems like he’s taking better care of himself. I never understood how women like Ariana Grande or Kate Beckinsale could be into him, but now I kind of get his quirky attractiveness.

    • Liz version 700 says:

      It breaks my heart to think of him loosing his dad in 9/11. He has grown on me as well. His honesty regarding his mental illness is refreshing and helps to break down barriers for others without such a high profile.

  3. Nina says:

    I have a feeling that him and Phoebe are a PR couple

  4. Lanagen says:

    I saw he paid 1.2 million for some place on Staten Island. How trashy.

    • Boxy Lady says:

      Oh I dunno. There are a lot of amazing looking houses in SI. I look at a lot and there are some great houses on there. The house used for the Corleone compound in The Godfather is in Staten Island actually.

  5. Anna says:

    I heard it was just a few blocks away from his mom’s place. Also, how is this guy scoring all these babes? It makes no sense. The only possibilities are that he’s hung like a horse (which he alluded to in a cringey interview where his mom said his dad was and that he takes after his father–ew, just typing that…why?!?) and/or that he looks at them like they are the only woman in the world (I have a friend who is loved by just about every woman who crosses her path and that’s what an ex said, that it was how she looked at them) or he’s fun and carefree and makes them feel somehow like a normal life…?

    • whatWHAT? says:

      don’t discount the weight that humor brings to a relationship or how sexy it can make someone.

      I recall a few guys in my past that were marginally good looking (not uggo but also not model material) who were SO DAMN attractive because of their sense of humor.

      • SarahCS says:

        Same. I was introduced to a guy by some friends years ago and when we first arrived at his place my reaction (internally) was ‘oh…. err, ok…’. By the time we were heading home that night I was hooked and we ended up dating for two years!

      • Anna says:

        So true @whatWHAT?

  6. Scal says:

    From why I understand he bought the house FOR his mom with his $ (not that it was her house and he just moved back in) and she co-signed on the loan so it could transfer to her outright at some point.

    Considering his mental health issues I always thought it was smart to have a stable home base instead of a party bachelor pad.

    • JanetDR says:

      That’s what I recall too – he bought a house for his mom but lived in the basement area. Which is sweet, really. I’m guessing he is that sweet n his relationships too. I just watched The King of Staten Island movie this weekend and again – pretty sweet.

  7. Case says:

    Good for him. He seems like he’s doing well — his more recent appearances on SNL have been better than ever, he’s been so on the ball. I wish him well, he seems like a nice guy who just has a lot of mental health struggles.

    • Normades says:

      He really has gotten a lot better on SNL. Before he was just playing himself and now he’s a much more integrated cast member.

    • Sandra says:

      Yes, I wish he had been playing Cuomo earlier. I was never a big fan of his on SNL except for “Chad” (which is probably an unpopular opinion but I think he’s hilarious) but his Cuomo is fantastic.

  8. StellainNH says:

    I hope he keeps himself healthy.

  9. Redheadwriter says:

    He’s my shame f*ck. Without the shame.
