Over the last few weeks, the most interesting new celebrity couple has without a doubt been Kate Beckinsale and Pete Davidson. And that has nothing at all to do with the fact that the more interesting celebrity couples are already broken up. When Pete and Kate were first spotted getting cozy together, it seemed like it might just be a random drunken hookup, but they’ve definitely got some sort of relationship going on. And by that I mean, they’ve escalated from hand-holding to full-blown public makeouts, as celebrity couples do. Our curiosity about what’s happening with them was refreshed this week when they were seen making out at a Rangers game. Classic. Antoni was clearly stressed out about the situation, and frankly, so was I. We’ve all been wondering if this relationship is a PR stunt, so we reached out to our go-to for celeb gossip, Enty Lawyer. His site Crazy Days and Nights is always on point with the latest Hollywood drama, so we really needed him to weigh in. But before we go to the expert’s opinion, we first need to establish why Kate Beckinsale and Pete Davidson’s relationship might be a PR stunt in the first place.
It’s Time For A Rebound
It’s now been like, five months since Pete Davidson’s whirlwind relationship with Ariana Grande came crashing down. (For some reason, it feels like it both happened yesterday and 100 years ago.) We were worried about both Pete and Ariana at first, but it seems like they’re doing fine now. Ariana’s new album became the biggest of her career, and she’s about to embark on a sold-out world tour. Pete seemed like he was really struggling in the immediate aftermath of the breakup, but lately, he’s been doing a lot of comedy shows and has been showing up at SNL. So with their lives back in order, is it time for a new fling? From all the photos we’ve seen of him with Kate so far, it looks like he’s genuinely enjoying himself. They might not be in it for the long haul, but isn’t it time for a fun rebound fling? Their astrology charts show that they’re perfect for each other… at least in the rebound department, anyway, in case you needed further evidence.
He’s Way Younger

The age gap between Kate Beckinsale and Pete Davidson is one of the more interesting pieces here. Kate, at 45 years old, is 20 years older than Pete, which seems kind of shocking, but this might not be too out of character for her. Enty Lawyer tells us that she’s mostly dated younger since getting divorced in 2016, and he’s right. For a few months in 2017, Kate dated comedian Matt Rife, who is two years younger than Pete, and, um, incredibly hot. She’s got a type!
She Has A New Show Coming Out
The main reason we’ve been wondering whether their relationship is legit is that it just seemed so random. Like, how did these two meet, and at what point did they first get together? The timing seemed especially convenient, considering that Kate Beckinsale’s new Amazon show came out last Friday. Look, Kate Beckinsale is great and all, but let’s not pretend she’s been the buzziest star recently. What better than a high-profile fling to drum up some curiosity about The Widow? That’s right, I bet you didn’t even know the name of the show until this very moment. Whoops, still haven’t watched it. This definitely feels like it could be a fake relationship, but Enty is pretty sure that they met by chance recently the night before an InStyle party, and just hit it off.
He (Maybe) Has BDE
Never forget this f*cking iconic Ariana Grande tweet, implying that Pete is packing major heat. Last summer, all we could talk about was how he radiates big dick energy, and that hasn’t really changed. Then again, Pete has more or less denied that he’s toting a third leg. He joked in a stand-up show, “Everything is huge to [Ariana]. Why would she tell everyone that I have a huge penis? So that every girl who sees my dick for the rest of my life is disappointed.” So does the poster boy for BDE actually have BDE? I don’t intend on finding out for myself, but maybe Kate was really curious. Look, if you’ve never been with a guy just because of his size, well, you’re a better person than me I guess. Even though his relationship with Kate seems random, it’s not difficult to imagine them getting together and having a fun time. This might not be a serious relationship for either of them, but in my opinion, it’s most likely completely real. Enty agrees. Here’s exactly what he had to say:
Is it worth the price of Pete Davidson’s tongue down your throat for all the world to see for a publicity stunt for your Amazon show?
Couldn’t have said it better myself.
