It looks like there’s a new woman in Pete Davidson’s life. In September, about a month after his breakup with Chase Sui Wonders, Davidson reportedly began dating Outer Banks star Madelyn Cline... who herself had a recent breakup with a famous actor named Chase. Here are the latest developments on their ‘ship.

Though Davidson and Cline have yet to confirm there’s any romance between them, it’s hard for fans to ignore the signs. Davidson even included a photo of Cline in his Netflix standup special Turbo Fonzarelli, which premiered on Jan. 9. By that point, there had been rumors surrounding the pair for over three months, so viewers were quick to notice the quick shoutout to Cline in the special’s end credits.

As the credits rolled, they were accompanied by photos Davidson had taken over the past year. And sure enough, Cline made an appearance. One of the pics showed Davidson’s rumored girlfriend smiling on a plane next to the comedian Derek Gaines, one of the opening acts for Davidson’s 2023 tour.


The photo reveal came a couple months after the duo were first spotted in public together.

On Oct. 14, Davidson and Cline had their first public night out as a couple. After Davidson hosted Saturday Night Live, the two were seen arriving at the afterparty together. Per E!, they were holding hands at the gathering, which was held at Catch Steakhouse in NYC.

This outing comes only a few weeks after relationship rumors first started in late September, when Us Weekly reported the two stars spent the night together at the Beverly Hills Hotel. “They were really low-key and kept things casual,” the publication’s source claimed on Sept. 22. Soon afterward, Cline reportedly attended Davidson’s stand-up comedy show in Las Vegas on Sept. 23, per Page Six.

However, Cline may have posted a cuddly pic with Davidson days before anyone knew they were together. On Sept. 14, Cline shared a carousel of photos from a recent New York Jets game she attended. Hidden in the middle of the photo dump is a romantic shot of someone with their arm around Cline, which commenters now believe might be Davidson.

Both stars are fresh out of buzzy relationships with former co-stars named Chase. Davidson had been dating his Bodies Bodies Bodies co-star Chase Sui Wonders since the beginning of 2023, but the two called it quits in August. They had played love interests both in the A24 horror comedy, as well as in Davidson’s semi-autobiographical Peacock series Bupkis.

As for Cline, she dated her Outer Banks co-star Chase Stokes throughout the first two seasons of their hit Netflix show, but they broke up at the end of 2021 after nearly two years together. Stokes is now dating country singer Kelsea Ballerini, while Cline had been connected to singer-songwriter Jackson Guthy throughout 2022 and 2023.

While Cline’s most recent relationship was pretty low-key, Davidson’s dating life has been a high-profile whirlwind for the past five years. In 2018, he dated and was briefly engaged to Ariana Grande, inspiring several songs on her album Sweetener. Throughout 2019 and 2020, he dated various famous actors, including Kate Beckinsale, Margaret Qualley, Kaia Gerber, and Phoebe Dynevor.

In 2021, Davidson’s love life reached a whole new level of public fascination when he began dating Kim Kardashian following her divorce from Kanye West. The roller-coaster romance lasted about nine months before the two stars split up in the fall of 2022.
