Pete Davidson is a single man no more. According to US Weekly, the SNL star has been dating actor Margaret Qualley, who had a breakout role this year in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.
According to US Weekly, “They’ve been seeing each other for a couple of months and Margaret is really excited about him.” The magazine claims that the new pair are planning on making their debut as a couple later this week at the Venice Film Festival, where Qualley is promoting her new movie Seberg.

Davidson’s most recent relationship was with actor Kate Beckinsale. The pair dated for a few months after first being spotted together at Golden Globe afterparties and later at the infamous hockey game before calling it quits back in May. That relationship came after 25-year-old Davidson’s highly publicized romance with singer Ariana Grande. Davidson and Grande dominated headlines with their romance for months, getting engaged after only a few weeks of dating, which was more than enough time for the two to gush about their partnership in interviews. Grande even wrote a song titled “Pete Davidson” on her Sweetener album. But the pair’s relationship fizzled almost as quickly as it began, with Grande once again taking inspiration from Davidson for her massive track “Thank U Next.” As far as breakup songs go, it doesn’t get much more flattering than “Thank U, Next.”
As for Qualley, who is the daughter of actor Andie McDowell, the 24-year-old previously dated actor Nat Wolff and was most recently linked to director Cary Fukunaga. Qualley is best known for her role as Justin Theroux’s daughter Jill in The Leftovers, but she made a big splash at the movies this summer playing a member of the Manson family who tries to seduce Brad Pitt’s character in Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.
The latest development in Davidson’s dating life is a piece of good news that arrives during a not-so-good week for the comedian. During a show at the University of Central Florida on Monday night, Davidson publicly berated the students in attendance, chastising the group for using their cell phones to record his set. “I don’t have to be here,” Davidson told the audience. “I can just give them their money back because I don’t give a f**k.”
The comedian went on to describe UFC as being in the “middle of f**king nowhere” and called the students “privileged little assholes.” Things got even more heated when Davidson told the crowd “That’s why the world is going to end in 25 years, because you’re all f**king retarded.” No, Pete. No, no, no.
Davidson continued with his show, which attendees say lasted about an hour, but the school released a statement condemning Davidson’s language and the use of the derogatory slur. You know you’ve gone too far when Florida is more PC than you. Davidson has yet to apologize for his use of the slur, but we’re hoping that the entertainer will make amends and not taint much of the good work he’s been doing in the mental health community.
