He just recently said that he is dating Emily Ratajkowski. Pete Davidson’s love life has been a roller coaster, but it just came out that he used to be friends with the model’s ex-husband, Sebastian Bear-McClard.
The SNL comedian, who is 29, was seen joking around with director Bear-McClard, who is 41, at the Houston Rockets vs. New York Knicks game in NYC in 2020. The two looked like they were best friends as they cheered for their teams.
Bear-McClard was also an executive producer on Halina Reijn’s 2022 black comedy slasher Bodies Bodies Bodies, in which Pete starred.
Bear-McClard had been married to the beautiful brunette for two years when the fun pictures were taken.
Pete and Emily were seen hugging for the first time on Wednesday, which is when the news came out.
A source said that the comedian fell in love with the beauty’s “intelligence,” which seemed to confirm the rumors about his new girlfriend. They met up to celebrate his 29th birthday.
The former Saturday Night Live star and the model were seen on a date in New York City just days after dating rumors started to spread about them.
Emily was even carrying a book from the West Village book store Three Lives & Company, which was wrapped up as a gift for the birthday boy.
Even though Pete and Emily seemed happy to see each other for the first time, their first public outing was not without problems.
Witnesses say that the comedian drove his Mini Cooper to the model’s West Village apartment, where Emily came out into the street to meet him.
But when photographers “swarmed the couple,” Pete seemed to get scared and drive away, leaving his date standing alone in the street.
Emily didn’t give up, so she got in an Uber and went to a place in Brooklyn where she saw Pete again. They were seen having a very close embrace in the lobby of a residential building.
Pete was so happy that he couldn’t stop grinning as he hugged the model and led her down the hallway of the building.
After celebrating the birthday boy’s special day, Emily was later seen walking alone back to her own apartment, carrying a water bottle instead of the gift she had given her “new beau.”
After dating Kim Kardashian for nine months, the comedian broke up with her in August. Since then, he has been trying to get his life back on track.
Pete’s relationship with Kim, 42, came after he had dated a string of other A-list women, such as Ariana Grande (who famously bragged about his “10 inches” and “big d*** energy”), Kate Beckinsale, Kaia Gerber, Margaret Qualley, Phoebe Dynevor, and Ariana Grande again.
Emily was last linked to DJ Orazio Rispo, who she was seen kissing passionately in New York City last month. This was after she broke up with Bear-McClard in September.
At the time, it was said that the model had decided to leave her husband, who was a film producer, because he was a “serial cheater.” At the time, a source told Page Six, “It’s gross. He’s a mutt.’
Claudia Oshry, a comedian and social media influencer, also talked about the situation on an episode of The Morning Toast podcast. She said that Sebastian’s cheating was a well-known fact in the business world.
“It’s kind of common knowledge that her husband cheated on her and that they’re getting a divorce,” she said, adding that when the couple announces their split, no one will be surprised.
Emily and Sebastian have a son together named Sylvester Apollo Bear, who is one year old. In September, Emily filed for a divorce.
There had been rumors that Emily was dating Brad after her divorce, but she seemed to put an end to these rumors by showing a lot of affection to Orazio in public.
Emily and Sebastian, who are known for making movies like “Uncut Gems,” “Good Time,” and “Funny Pages,” were first linked on Valentine’s Day in February 2018.
This was one month after it was reported online that she had broken up with her boyfriend of three years, Jeff Magid.
