Y’all, please take a few minutes and read this incredibly important PSA that is absolutely world-shattering: SNL star Pete Davidson was reportedly spotted leaving the Netflix Golden Globes afterparty on Jan. 6 with bombshell actress Kate Beckinsale. Yep, you heard us. Kate friggin’ Beckinsale! If Pete thought he “won a contest” after snagging his ex-fiancé Ariana Grande, then he’s about to see what it feels like to win the lottery.
According to Page Six, the duo “were flirting all night and sipping champagne.” An insider told the outlet, “They were outside on the patio and left together.” Um, we’re so here for this couple. Even if it ends up just being a one-night stand type of situation, the idea that Pete, 25, and Kate, 45, were gettin’ their flirt on gives us life.
The mama of one has had a pretty well-known penchant for younger dudes over the years, so we wouldn’t be surprised to see these two giving things a try. Her on-again, off-again ex Matt Rife is also a comic, and he and Pete have played some shows together over the course of their careers, so there may be more than meets the eye when it comes to how close they already are.
Honestly? This is totally the rebound Pete deserves right now. Plus, Kate is such a babe. On top of that, an eyewitness from the night told In Touch exclusively that Pete “looked good” and was “smiling” and “laughing” with his pal Machine Gun Kelly. He was “in a good mood,” the insider dished, as was MGK. Sounds like Pete was living it up last night and Kate was down to be along for the ride!
For the last couple of months, Pete has been trying to heal from his split with Ariana. The couple broke up and called off their engagement in October after a whirlwind five-month romance. After that, the comedian shared an alarming message regarding suicidal thoughts on Dec. 15, so we’re so glad to see Pete is back in good spirits and makin’ moves.
This is definitely a possible couple to watch!
