Pete Davidson and Kaia Gerber were seen together last month, prompting speculation about whether or not they’re dating, especially since at that time it had just been revealed that he and Margaret Qualley had broken up after a few months – and, given Pete’s romance history the last year or so, well, it’s not like he hasn’t been all the way out there with his heart. Which is why he showed up during Kristen Stewart’s monologue on Saturday Night Live last week in a bit about putting your business out there for entertainment. 

This week, Pete and Kaia were seen having dinner at Nobu in Malibu and then photographed leaving the restaurant. According to E! News, they were there for two hours, seemed like they were having a good time but weren’t “outwardly romantic”. A source tells E! that Pete and Kaia are “just friends” but the insider also added that Pete “came out to see [Kaia] in Los Angeles” because, of course, he’s based in New York.

So…wait. He didn’t have any other reason to be in LA? He wasn’t taking meetings or working? He flew out on a few days off to spend time with her? Sure, friends do that. Friends with money totally do that. Like the celebrity equivalent of you popping into your friend’s place after work one day and staying for a couple of drinks. Is that what this is? Is that how this “friendship” works?
