After about three months of being the latest girl to make people wonder if Pete Davidson has some kind of magic wish-granting penis or something, Kaia Gerber might be spending her nights without him. I say nights, because Pete looks kind of like a nocturnal mammal that thrives away from the sun’s UVA rays. E! News has an update on their relationship, claiming they’re still technically together, but a source is saying that Pete has decided to take some time to focus on his mental health, and he’s doing it away from Kaia.
E!’s source is saying that Pete has put his relationship with Kaia “on the back burner.”
A source tells E! News Pete is “taking a break to work on his mental health” According to the insider, “It became very clear that he had to go and do this and couldn’t wait any longer.” This is his second time seeking treatment, his first being in 2016.”
Pete revealed he’d been struggling with sobriety and mental health during a 2017 episode of Saturday Night Live. He explained that he has bipolar disorder and Crohn’s disease and that he loves smoking weed. And on SNL last month, Pete joked on Weekend Update that he was going on a little “vacation.”
“I’m going on a little ‘vacation.’ The kind of vacation where insurance pays for some of it, and they take your phone and shoelaces. And you have roommates, but it still costs like $100,000.”
Another source says that Kaia really hasn’t heard from Pete in a while, and she’s kind of okay with that.
A second source reveals Pete is in “a program,” which has made it so he and Kaia “haven’t had a lot of contact.” Moreover, the same insider says Kaia “doesn’t know if she wants to continue in their relationship,” especially since she “wasn’t comfortable with what she saw and doesn’t know if she can handle it.”
“What she saw happen with Pete was very concerning and scary for her… She cares about Pete and wants him to get better. But their future is very much up in the air.”
E!’s first source says Pete and Kaia haven’t been seen together since last month. Kaia is currently on vacation in Florida without Pete.

Pete and Kaia breaking up isn’t only good news for Pete’s mental health, it’s also great news for Kaia’s parents Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber. A few weeks ago, it was reported that Cindy and Rande had an emergency parents meeting outside of Kaia’s apartment. Rande was reportedly seen telling a worried-looking Cindy that someone upstairs (assumed to be Pete) had “scratched eyes” and was “freaking out.” The words “need help” and “private rehab” were also reported said.
So this is good for them too. Because parents are only required to care so much about their daughter’s weird boyfriend. A casual “So, how is your boyfriend” during a Saturday morning phone call is sufficient. It’s never good when they have to add the words, “No, but really…how is he, and please be honest.”
