Pete Davidson and Emily Ratajkowski once again fueled dating rumors, this time by taking in a basketball game together.
A couple weeks after being photographed hugging in the hallway of a Brooklyn building, the former SNL s and star and the model had a date night at Madison Square Garden, watching the New York Knicks square off against the Memphis Grizzlies. For the romantic evening, Davidson wore a blue velour tracksuit by Sinclair, while the model went for a chocolate brown North Face puffer, light blue jeans, and green snakeskin boots. This wasn’t exactly a low-key outing for this budding relationship given that the pair were seated court-side between Ben Stiller and his wife Christine Taylor and singer Jordin Sparks and her husband, Dana Isaiah. At one point, the in-game announcer also shouted out that Davidson was in the arena that night, referring to him as “Pete Davis,” but failed to mention that Ratajkowski was also in attendance.
A source confirmed to People that this two-week relationship is still going strong as “Emily continues to spend time with Pete.” They added, “She finds him charming and funny. He is a passionate guy and plans great dates. Emily is still taking it slowly. She is intrigued and flattered.” Rumors the two had started seeing each other first began earlier this month, and just days later were seemingly confirmed when Davidson and Ratajkowski were photographed celebrating the Bodies Bodies Bodies actor’s 29th birthday together, meeting up to exchange gifts. According to an Us Weekly insider, “Pete and Emily have been talking for a couple months now,” and are “in the very early stages, but both really like each other.” They noted, “Pete makes Emily laugh and he loves how intelligent she is.”
But while the two stars are enjoying each other’s company, it doesn’t seem like Ratajkowski is in a rush to get into a serious relationship again anytime soon as she is still in the midst of a divorce from her husband of four years, Sebastian Bear-McClard. She told Harper’s Bazaar in an interview last month, “I can tell you that I have never been single before. I feel all the emotions. I feel anger, sadness. I feel excitement. I feel joy. I feel levity. Every day is different. The only good thing I know is that I’m feeling all those things, which is nice because it makes me believe that I’ll be okay.” The model revealed that prior to getting married, “It was hard for me to go on a date with someone and think about how much I did or didn’t like them. I would have been thinking about how they were perceiving me, what it meant, what they wanted from me, what it meant about my self-worth.” But now, “I don’t have that anymore. So now it’s really fun to go to dinner with someone and be like, ‘Cool. I really enjoyed these parts of them. I really didn’t like these other parts.’”
