Pete Davidson Says He's "A Diamond in the Trash"

·1 min read

Pete Davidson proves funny is the new hot. If you’re still trying to make sense of Davidson’s dating history, the Saturday Night Live actor attributes his charm to finding a classic in a discount DVD bin.

During a stand-up set at the Ninth Annual Patrice O’Neal Comedy Benefit Concert at New York City Center this past month, the comedian compared himself to a gem hidden amongst garbage. “I’m Tropic Thunder. I’m the diamond in the trash. It’s a steal.”

The King of Staten Island went on to say that women are curious to know more, adding, “There seems to be a curiosity about me is what my friends tell me. I was trying to figure out how to explain myself to someone because I was doing an interview.”

Before cuddling up to reality TV royalty Kim Kardashian, Davidson was famously engaged to Ariana Grande. After splitting with the “7 Rings” singer, Davidson was spotted with Hollywood veteran Kate Beckinsale. The 6-foot-3 actor moved on with model Kaia Gerber, then dated Bridgerton’s Phoebe Dynevor for five months before settling down with Kardashian.
