Pete Davidson is fully aware there are some critics of his latest high-profile romance with Cindy Crawford’s 18-year-old daughter Kaia Gerber. (Page Six reports that even Crawford and her husband Rande Gerber aren’t fans of it: “I think they’re just hoping this could all fizzle out,” a source close to the family said. “[Kaia’s] traveling and working constantly—how serious can [she and Davidson] get?”) So he took a moment during Saturday Night Live‘s Weekend Update to publicly defend their relationship.
Colin Jost asked Davidson if he was dating anyone. Davidson replied, “Yeah, and it’s not fair, Colin. You get to date a famous woman and everyone’s delighted [Jost is engaged to Scarlett Johansson], but when I do it, the world wants to punch me in the throat. What’d I do? If I’m your type of guy that your daughter or mother is into, then trust me, I’m the best case scenario. There are a million guys who look like me, and I’m the only one who has a job. It’s like me or Tyga.”
This is Davidson’s first time talking about Gerber on SNL.
The two have been together for roughly two months. A source told E! in November that “Kaia and Pete are definitely in a romantic relationship. They have been friends for a while now and run in the same friend circle, but became romantic recently. They started hanging out alone more often after meeting up in NYC in October. Kaia expressed she loved Pete’s personality. She thinks he is charming and is very intrigued.” The two have since been photographed attending a wedding together and making out in Miami.
