Pete Davidson appeared to address his budding romance with 18-year-old model Kaia Gerber on Saturday’s installment of “Weekend Update.”
During the segment, the “Saturday Night Live” star, 26, was asked about his dating life by “Update” co-host Colin Jost, who is engaged to frequent “SNL” host Scarlett Johansson.
“It’s not fair, Colin. You get to date a famous woman and everyone’s delighted, but when I do it the world wants to punch me in the throat,” Davidson said. “What’d I do?”
Davidson, who has been linked to Gerber since October, added, “If I’m your type of guy that your daughter, or mother, is into, then trust me, I’m the best-case scenario.”
Prior to his romance with Gerber, Davidson dated “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” star Margaret Qualley, 25. Earlier this year, the comedian was seen getting flirty with Kate Beckinsale, 46, at a Golden Globes afterparty. He and Ariana Grande, 26, also ended their engagement in the fall of 2018.
“There are a million guys who look like me, and I’m the only one with a job. It’s like me or Tyga,” Davidson quipped, referencing Kylie Jenner’s ex.
Davidson, who recently opened up to Paper magazine about relationships, also received support from fans on Twitter when asked by Jost about his holiday plans.
“I’m going on a little ‘vacation,’” Davidson said. “The kind of vacation where insurance pays for some of it, and they take your phone and shoelaces. And you have roommates, but it still costs like $100,000.”
Some fans speculated Davidson was alluding to rehab during his discussion with Jost.
“I love Pete Davidson sm and if he’s really going to rehab I hope he gets the help he needs,” one user wrote.
“I don’t know if Pete Davidson is genuinely going to rehab but whatever it is #WeLoveYouPete,” another posted.
