Emily Ratajkowski cuts a stylish figure in black leather coat after going public with Pete Davidson


Emily Ratajkowski has been spotted for the first time she she confirmed her romance with Hollywood lothario Pete Davidson.

The comedian seemingly confirmed the widespread rumors about his newest stunning squeeze as they met up to celebrate his 29th birthday on Wednesday night, after a source revealed how he had fallen for the beauty’s ‘intelligence’.

The 31-year-old model stepped out on Thursday in New York City in the early morning.

She looked typically fashion forward in a black leather coat boasting a faux fur collar and belt to cinch her in at her svelte waist.

The writer wore her brunette tresses down and sported minimal makeup to let her natural beauty shine through.

It comes after Emily and Pete were captured on a date in New York City, just days after rumors of a romance between them first began to swirl – with Emily even carrying a wrapped gift for the birthday boy in her hand, a book from West Village-based book store Three Lives & Company.

However, while Pete and Emily both appeared delighted to see one another, their first public outing together was not without its hiccups. 

According to witnesses, the comedian arrived at the model’s West Village apartment in his Mini Cooper – with Emily stepping out into the street to meet him. But when photographers ‘swarmed the couple’, Pete seemingly got spooked and drove off – leaving his date standing in the street alone. 

Undeterred, Emily later got into an Uber, which drove her to a location in Brooklyn, where she once again met up with Pete, with the two seen sharing a very intimate embrace in the lobby of a residential building. 

A delighted Pete couldn’t wipe the smile off his face as he pulled the model into a hug, before ushering her down the hallway of the building. 

After celebrating the birthday boy’s special day, Emily was later seen returning home to her own apartment solo, carrying a water bottle in her hand in place of the gift she had given her supposed new beau. 

The comedian is on the rebound after he split from Kim Kardashian in August following a nine-month high-profile fling. 

Pete’s romance with Kim, 42, came after the actor built himself a reputation as one of Hollywood’s most prolific lotharios, having dated a string of other A-list women including Ariana Grande (who famously boasted about his ’10 inches’ and ‘big d*** energy’), Kate Beckinsale, Kaia Gerber, Margaret Qualley and Phoebe Dynevor. 

Meanwhile, Emily was last linked to DJ Orazio Rispo, who she was seen passionately kissing in New York City last month, following her split from husband Sebastian Bear-McClard in September. 

In an awkward twist, Pete and Sebastian have mingled in the same circle and both attended a basketball game together in 2020. Sebastian also executive produced Halina Reijn’s black comedy slasher Bodies Bodies Bodies, in which Pete starred.

Emily was also given an uncomfortable reminder of his high-profile exes on the same day as their first public outing.

Pete made his debut appearance in reality TV show The Kardashians yesterday, showing him and Kim getting ready for the Met Gala when they were still loved-up in May where she tells him: ‘You look so f***ing handsome.’

Earlier this week, a source told Us Weekly that the two were ‘in the very early stages’ of dating, but things were going well so far as they were said to ‘really like each other.’

The source explained that they had been building up to dating, as they had ‘been talking for a couple months now’ after mutual friends put them in touch.

It seemed to be a solid fit for the two, as Emily — who wrote a bestselling and critically acclaimed essay collection titled My Body — wowed Pete with how ‘intelligent she is,’ while she reportedly enjoyed the comedians ability to make her laugh.

News of the two potentially dating erupted after the gossip site DeuxMoi was tipped off by an anonymous person that the two were allegedly seen ‘all over each other,’ which quickly spread across the internet.

‘His hands were all over her and they’re clearly clearly hooking up,’ the tipster claimed after reportedly seeing the two on a date in Brooklyn on Sunday. 

Emily has lately been dating other men since the end of her marriage to Uncut Gems film producer Sebastian Bear–McClard among rumors of his alleged infidelity.

The model and the producer split in July after four years of marriage; she filed for divorce in September.

Emily gave birth to son Sylvester — whom she usually calls Sly — in March of last year during happier times in her marriage to Sebastian.

Last month, she was seen dating and even sharing a passionate kiss with the DJ Orazio Rispo in New York City.

Prior to the sightings with Rispo, Ratajkowski was reported to have gone out on a few dates with Brad Pitt, though the relationship doesn’t appear to have gotten off the ground after DailyMail.com published exclusive photos of the Oscar winner getting handsy with a new woman.

Pete appears to have taken a few months before jumping into a new relationship following his breakup from Kim Kardashian, which was revealed in early August.

The funny man and the 42-year-old reality icon discovered a spark after sharing a kiss on stage when Kim made her SNL hosting debut in October 2021, for a sketch in which they parodied Disney’s Aladdin and kissed on a magic carpet.

The two couldn’t get each other off their minds in subsequent months, and had a series of clandestine meetings and dates. Days before Christmas, the comic rented out his favorite movie theater on Staten Island for a private screening of the Lady Gaga and Adam Driver–starring drama House Of Gucci.

The two went official with their relationship as 2022 rolled along, but their inseparable nature and plentiful PDA were interrupted by Kim’s ex-husband Kanye West, who carried on a campaign of harassing and even threatening posts on social media.

By August, the two had gone their separate ways, reportedly after they lost their ‘spark’ after Pete had to spend extended time away to shoot a film in Australia, while Kim remained in Los Angeles with her four children.

The actor’s time with Kim seems to have shown he is comfortable around children, as he was spotted out occasionally without Kim while taking along some of her kids.

Margaret Qually (2019) 

Shortly after parting ways with Kate, Pete was linked to actress Margaret Qually.

Phoebe Dynevor (2021)

Bridgerton star Phoebe and Pete confirmed their romance in April 2021 when they were spotted on a stroll in Stoke. 

Rumours were swirling in about their relationship status in weeks before the sighting. A source told People that Pete is ‘telling friends he is serious about Phoebe’. 

Speculation of the relationship began in March when Pete was snapped visiting Phoebe’s native Manchester while she visited New York, where he lives, in February. 

In August, they broke up after trying to make things work long distance ‘put a strain’ on their relationship. 

 

Kim Kardashian (2021–2022)

 

The spark of Pete’s relationship with Kim Kardashian began when they kissed on camera during her hosting debut on SNL in October 2021.

The couple had secretive meetings through the rest of the year, including private dinners and a trip to a movie after Pete rented out a theater at his favorite multiplex on Staten Island.

The lovebirds went red carpet official in 2022 and were practically inseparable, with Pete eventually appearing on her new reality series The Kardashians.

But the two were the subject of harassing social media posts from Kim’s ex Kanye West through much of their relationship.

Although the two had appeared as loved-up as ever, they were reported to have split on August 5 after being kept apart by their disparate work schedules.

How DOES ‘goofy’ Pete Davidson bag all these beauties? With his ‘powerful Alpha vibe’, edginess and rebellion, a body language expert reveals how the US comedian is ‘like catnip’ to A-list women

By Brittany Chain for MailOnline 

Pete Davidson’s ‘powerful Alpha vibe’ and reputation as a rebound date who happily ‘measures his relationships in months instead of years’ makes him ‘like catnip’ to Hollywood A-listers, a body language expert said today.

Judi James said the comedian’s luck with the ladies also stems from his ability to laugh at himself – rare in an industry brimming with egos and ‘toxic ex’s’.

Davidson, 28, is most recently thought to have caught the eye of newly-single model Emily Ratajkowski, 31. The pair ‘have been talking for a couple months’ after being set up by mutual friends, a source told US Weekly.

Ms James told MailOnline Davidson’s reputation for his ‘big d**k energy’ – first revealed by ex Ariana Grande – is no doubt appealing, but ‘doesn’t quite explain his fatal attraction values for so many global beauties’.

He famously had a short-lived romance with Kim Kardashian, but Davidson has also enjoyed dalliances with stars including Kate Beckinsale, Grande and Phoebe Dynevor.

‘It looked like Kim was his ultimate ”all the cherries aligned” fruit machine-type win but now he’s dating Emily Ratajkowski, proving there is no glass ceiling on romance as far as Pete is concerned,’ Ms James said. 

Ms James said Davidson’s edginess, humour, dating history and apparent willingness to relinquish control to his love interest are all appealing to women – particularly those who are fresh out of serious relationships.

‘In a world of controlling ex’s this could be like therapy for the women,’ she said. ‘Pete is the guy with the goofy grin and the body language and fashion finesse of a party-loving teenager.

‘Not only does Pete look like a man who is continually punching above his weight, he acts like it too with his body language. He tends to look star-struck in a very flattering way. 

‘The more beautiful a woman is the more she tends to attract the arrogant Narcissist. Pete looks like the opposite, which could be refreshing.’

Davidson’s line of work is also likely helping him on the dating scene. Comedy, Ms James says, helps to create an ‘alpha vibe’ in a world where celebrities often ‘take themselves a little too seriously’.

‘Jokes can be as powerful as muscles when taking somebody down and Pete’s ability to crack great one-liners might be super-attractive, especially if he’s bringing a toxic ex down to size,’ she said.

Davidson famously responded to Kanye West’s vitriol and threats with humour during his nine-month relationship with Kim.

QUALITIES THAT LANDED PETE DAVIDSON SO MANY OF HOLLYWOOD’S LEADING LADIES 

Body language expert Judi James analysed the key qualities that make Davidson so appealing to women. She says: 

His edginess 

‘Edginess by association is all the rage in Hollywood right now. It adds an extra sense of sexiness and rebellion to a star’s profile, making them the ideal sought-after fashion accessory.’ 

His sense of humour 

‘Pete is a comedian and comedy can create a powerful alpha vibe, especially in the world of celebrity where A-listers can take themselves a little too seriously. Jokes can be as powerful as muscles when taking somebody down and Pete’s ability to crack great one-liners might be super-attractive, especially if he’s bringing a toxic ex down to size.’

His flattery signals

‘Not only does Pete look like a man who is continually punching above his weight, he acts like it too with his body language. He tends to look star-struck in a very flattering way. The more beautiful a woman is the more she tends to attract the arrogant Narcissist. Pete looks like the opposite, which could be refreshing.’ 

His short term availability 

‘He seems to be a bit of a rebound date recently and the way his relationships get measured in months rather than years, but without any painful, ego-crushing endings, could make him the perfect ‘fun and wild’ therapy for any woman coming out of a painful divorce.’

His dating history 

‘The minute Pete pulled his first A-list beauty he naturally become an object of desire for similar women. It’s a fame and status by association concept. Who would not be interested in dating the man who dated Kim Kardashian?’

His willingness to relinquish control 

‘He seems to let the woman take control of the body language signals. When you see shots of Pete with his dates it’s usually the women instigating all the sexual signals while he just sits looking grateful for all the kisses and hugs. In a world of controlling ex’s this too could be like therapy for the women.’

He was first linked to Kim in October 2021 weeks after the reality television star made her hosting debut on SNL, where the now ex-couple shared an on-screen kiss.

After less than a year together, an insider told DailyMail.com on August 5 the pair decided to just be friends – citing demanding schedules and the long distance as Pete worked on a project in Australia while Kim remained in the U.S.

That relationship has only done Davidson more favours, Ms James said, both with how he’s handled the split and in furthering his reputation as a ‘bit of a rebound date’.

‘The way his relationships get measured in months rather than years, but without any painful, ego-crushing endings, could make him the perfect ”fun and wild” therapy for any woman coming out of a painful divorce,’ she said.

‘Pete’s dates look like they would take you back to your teenage years of dating.’

Additionally, dating a man who has previously been linked to the likes of a Kardashian, pop star or successful actress is also likely to only increase his desirability. 

Ms James said: ‘The minute Pete pulled his first A-list beauty he naturally become an object of desire for similar women. It’s a fame and status by association concept. Who would not be interested in dating the man who dated Kim Kardashian?’

Grande once tweeted about his ’10 inches’ and set the internet ablaze with talk of his ‘big d**k energy’. Kim later admitted she pursued Pete after hearing about his ‘big d**k energy’ and was simply ‘DTF’ (down to f**k), hinting that she was having the ‘best’ time of her life in the bedroom with the comedian. 

Davidson’s edgy persona and no-holds-barred style of comedy is also ‘on trend’ right now, and A-listers ‘are falling over themselves to date the likes of Machine Gun Kelly and Travis [Barker]’.

Ms James refers to the trend as ‘edginess by association’ – and it’s just another element working in Davidson’s favour as Hollywood’s current ‘it guy’. 

‘It adds an extra sense of sexiness and rebellion to a star’s profile, making them the ideal sought-after fashion accessory.’

He’s cracked jokes about everything from Epstein to AIDS, but more often than not the target of his comedy is himself. 

Davidson is also open about his mental health struggles. He’s dealt with depression and anxiety for years and, in 2017, revealed he had been diagnosed with borderline personality disorder.

And Emily Ratajkowski previously said that vulnerability was one of his most charming qualities. The model praised Davidson as ‘super charming’ after working with him on a shoot in 2021.

She said during an appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers: ‘He’s a professional. First of all, you should know that about Pete.

‘Pete – he’s got the height. Obviously women find him very attractive.

‘Guys are like, ”Wow. What’s that guy got?” And I’m like, I mean, he seems super charming. He’s vulnerable. He’s lovely. His fingernail polish is awesome. He looks good!’
