These days, Pete Davidson is dating Kim Kardashianmaking him one of the most scrutinized public figures on the planet.
But before Kim, Pete played the field with impunity, and it was often hard to keep track of who he was dating from week to week.
While there may have been some overlap between some of these brief musings, no one has ever accused him of lying or womanizing.
But now one alleged ex is accusing Pete of ending their relationship in an ungentlemanly manner.
Olivia O’Brien is a pop singer best known for her 2016 single “I Hate U, I Love U”.
In a recent podcast interview with Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy, O’Brien claimed that she and Pete were dating in 2020.
She also claimed that Davidson dumped her via text so she could continue the relationship Bridgerton star Phoebe Dynevor.
This thread of conversation started when Portnoy asked O’Brien “what happened between him and Pete”.
While Portnoy appeared confused, she read a message from celebrity gossip site DeuxMoi.
“I have it on good authority that Pete and Phoebe are in fact an item,” the post read.
“He ended things with a B-list pop star/influencer he had seen before because of Phoebe.”
Olivia apparently wasn’t offended by being classified as a B-lister, and explained that the rumor was true – she and Pete dated two years ago, but he left her for Phoebe.
“He texted me and said, ‘I’m seeing someone else,'” she recalled. “‘So, I can’t.'”
It’s not a reputation breaker or anything, but the story doesn’t make Pete look great.
But Davidson says the entire account is a lie.
Not only does he deny rejecting Olivia via text, but he also denies they ever dated at all!
“There is no truth in this,” a representative of the former Saturday Night Live star said in a statement to E! News.
The spokesperson added that Pete and Olivia “were friends and hung out [out] a few times,” but insisted the relationship didn’t go any further.
For her part, Olivia has yet to directly respond to the controversy, but her latest tweet may reflect her feelings on the matter:
“You can tell your entire life story word for word and people will still only hear part of it and take it out of context,” Olivia wrote.
We doubt Olivia is lying about her relationship with Pete.
A more likely explanation is that they were something between friends and partners, and there was some ambiguity in defining their relationship.
There was a time—not so long ago—when Pete probably wouldn’t have bothered to respond to Olivia’s arguments.
But these days, she’s part of the Kardashian media machine.
And Kris Jenner makes sure everyone close to her has a tight grip on her public image!
