Rumor has it that one of the most interesting couples in Hollywood is no more. Comedian Pete Davidson and actress Kate Beckinsale shocked the world when they started dating. The 45-year-old British actress and the 25-year-old comedian who had just broken his engagement with Ariana Grande seemed like an odd pairing.
However, the duo seemed to have a great time together, and they certainly weren’t shy about expressing PDA or hanging out in public. Now, it looks like Beckinsale and Davidson have fizzled.
Did Kate Beckinsale and Pete Davidson break up?
Apparently, things with Beckinsale and Davidson were moving way too fast, so they’ve decided to pump the breaks. An insider told Entertainment Tonight, “They’re still friendly but are not on romantic terms.” This report comes just hours after a source told People, “Pete and Kate got super serious very fast, but they’ve decided to slow things down a bit. They’re still dating as of now.” Since the Saturday Night Live star had already met Beckinsale’s parents and the public seemed to hyper intrigued with their relationship –we can see why it was all a bit much. In March 2019 the actress told The Los Angles 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. It’s all quite shocking, and something to get used to. I think if you liked the person less, you would bow out of it. If that were the main thrust of the relationship, there would be a problem. But it’s not.
How did Kate Beckinsale and Pete Davidson meet?
We’re not exactly sure when Beckinsale and Davidson officially met, but the first time they were spotted together was on Jan. 6, 2019 –when they left one of the Golden Globes after parties together. At the time an unverified source told US Weekly, “Kate and Pete were flirting at the InStyle party and she was following him around a bit and waiting for him. People approached her, and she didn’t want to talk to anyone else.”
Did Kate Beckinsale and Pete Davidson want a serious relationship?
Neither the actress or the comedian were looking for anything serious when they met –they just clicked. It was especially difficult to have something super serious since they live on opposite coasts. An insider told E!, “They spend most of their time on opposite coasts, so it’s a casual thing But they are going to keep talking and having fun together.” Meanwhile, an insider revealed to People, “Kate’s not looking to get serious with someone. She was really hurt after her marriage with Len [Wiseman] ended. She wants to have fun with guys and date around. She loves the attention from the younger men she dates.”
It looks like things between the pair were hot heavy and fun for a while until it got to be too overwhelming.
