These days, Pete Davidson is dating Kim Kardashian, which makes him one of the most scrutinized public figures on the planet.

But in his pre-Kim days, Pete played the field with impunity, and it was often difficult to keep track of whom he was dating from one week to the next.

While there may have been some overlap between some of these brief flings, no one ever accused of him of lying or womanizing.

But now, one alleged ex is accusing Pete of ending their relationship in an ungentlemanly fashion.

Pete Peaces Out

Olivia O’Brien is a pop singer best known for the 2016 single “I Hate U, I Love U.”

During a recent podcast interview with Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy, O’Brien claimed that she and Pete dated in 2020.

She also alleged that Davidson dumped her with a text message so that he could pursue a relationship with Bridgerton star Phoebe Dynevor.

That line of conversation began when Portnoy asked O’Brien “what was going on” between her and Pete.

When she seemed confused, Portnoy read a post from the celebrity gossip site DeuxMoi.

“I have it on good authority that pete and phoebe are in fact an item,” the post read.

Pete Davidson and Kim Kardashian are officially an item. And it looks as though the relationship is progressing very rapidly!

“He ended things with B-list popstar/influencer he had been seeing beforehand for phoebe.”

Apparently unoffended by being categorized as a B-lister, Olivia explained that the rumor was true — she and Pete dated two years ago, but he dumped her for Phoebe.

“He texted me and was like, ‘I’m seeing someone else,” she recalled. “‘So, like, I can’t.'”

It’s not a reputation-destroyer, or anything, but the story doesn’t make Pete look great.

But Davidson says the whole account is bogus.

Not only does he deny dumping Olivia via text, he denies that they ever dated at all!

“There is no truth to this,” a rep for the former Saturday Night Live star said in a statement issued to E! News.

The spokesperson added that Pete and Olivia “were friends and hung [out] a few times,” but insisted that the relationship went no further than that.

For her part, Olivia has yet to directly respond to the controversy, but her latest tweet might be a reflection of her feelings on the matter:

“U can tell your whole life story word for word and people will still only hear part of it and take it out of context,” Olivia wrote.

We doubt that Olivia is flat-out lying about her relationship with Pete.

The more likely explanation is that the two of them were something in-between friends and partners, and there was some miscommunication with regard to how best to define their relationship.

There was a time — not all that long ago — when Pete probably wouldn’t have bothered responding to Olivia’s claims.

But these days, he’s part of the Kardashian media machine.
