Just in time for the holidays, a surprising new celebrity couple appears to be making an appearance: Us Weekly reports that Pete Davidson and Emily Ratajkowski are now seeing each other. The news comes hours later unconfirmed gossip Instagram DeuxMoi posted that the two were spotted out and about in Brooklyn over the weekend in New York City, holding hands.
“Pete and Emily have been talking for a few months now,” a source said, noting that the two are “in the very early stages [of dating]but both really like each other.”
Neither Ratajkowski nor Davidson have commented on the rumors yet. Ratajkowski filed for divorce from her ex-husband Sebastian Bear-McClard in the summer. Davidson, meanwhile, last dated Kim Kardashian for 9 months. Their bride was reported in August.
DeuxMoi added in a new post this evening that several people saw the two together at a restaurant in Brooklyn on Saturday. The original user who posted the sighting to DeuxMoi claimed they were “holding hands” and Davidson was hands-on.
Ratajkowski recently spoke on her podcast with Julia Fox that she doesn’t see herself in a traditional relationship with a man again after her breakup. “The main thing I want from a relationship is emotional support, and men have such a hard time giving that to women,” she said. “I can’t really imagine wanting that with someone else and having this traditional family structure. What I want is an emotional partner who can help me feel comfortable in everyday life.”
She added: “I don’t know, obviously I’m at a certain place in my life, but I can’t imagine a man doing that. So I’m like, ‘Why would I ever have a relationship again?’
