Pete Davidson, the Saturday Night Live comedian, and Madelyn Cline, the Outer Banks star, have been making headlines with their new romance. The couple made their first public appearance as a pair at an SNL after-party on October 16, 2023. They arrived hand-in-hand and were described as “lovey” by sources. Cline also sat in the audience next to Davidson’s family while he hosted SNL for the first time.
The news of their dating came shortly after Davidson and actress Chase Sui Wonders broke up in August after less than a year of dating. The split also occurred after the end of the comedian’s rehab stint this summer, when he underwent voluntary mental health treatment to address issues related to post-traumatic stress disorder and his prior borderline personality disorder diagnosis.
Cline also has an ex named Chase, as she previously dated her Outer Banks costar Chase Stokes after meeting on the set of the Netflix series in 2019. The onscreen love interests broke up in November 2021 after over a year.
Davidson has built a reputation as a Hollywood serial dater due to his highly publicized relationships (and situationships) with the likes of Ariana Grande, Kim Kardashian, and Emily Ratajkowski, to name a few. He has been candid about his interest in his love life and how it affects his work.
“I’m in my 20s and I’ve dated people. And for some reason, that’s very crazy and interesting to people. I don’t think it’s interesting,” Davidson said on the Real Ones podcast in March, per People. “I’ve been in show business for, like, half my life almost—for 14 or 15 years and on a national TV show. In 12 years, I’ve dated 10 people. I don’t think that’s that crazy, but to some people, that’s very interesting. That became all anyone would talk about.”
So how did everything start up with Cline? It’s not yet clear, but sources say that they spent the night together at the Beverly Hills Hotel and then had breakfast together there the next morning. They were also spotted together in Las Vegas for Davidson’s stand-up gig earlier this month.
It seems like things between Madelyn and Pete are getting more serious and they are enjoying each other’s company. We wish them all the best and hope they can keep their relationship low-key and drama-free.
