Pete addressed his relationship with his model girlfriend on "Weekend Update."
Pete Davidson paid a visit to his "Weekend Update" buddies, Colin Jost and Michael Che, on last night's episode of Saturday Night Live. Though Pete used to appear on the segment much more frequently during his first few years as a cast member, his appearances have become more and more rare. In the satirical news skit, Pete cracked jokes about his new relationship with 18-year-old model Kaia Gerber, arguing that their difference in attractiveness is actually beneficial for her. "There's a million guys who look like me and I'm the only one who has a job," he said. "It's just me and Tyga."
Pete does feel that he's unfairly judged for his romantic history of dating beautiful, famous women, including Ariana Grande, Kate Beckinsale, and Margaret Qualley along with Kaia. He pointed this out by taking a jab at Colin Jost, who recently got engaged to Scarlett Johansson. "You get to date a famous woman and everyone's delighted, but I do it and America wants to punch me in the throat," Pete complained. While the Kaia jokes were all in good fun, Pete took things to a darker place when discussing his plans for the winter holidays. "I'm going on 'vacation' but insurance pays for some of it, and they take your phone and shoe laces, and it costs $100,000 but I still have roommates," he quipped. This implication that he'll be spending his SNL hiatus in a mental health facility would not be as alarming if it weren't for Pete's history of public mental health issues. Pete's always been able to laugh at himself, so he may have just been trying to make light of his struggles. Regardless, if getting professional help is what he needs, then we're all here for it.
