Are Pete Davidson and Ice Spice dating? That's the question that's plastered all over Twitter, but is there actually any truth to these rumors—and if not, just where on earth did they come from?
Pete Davidson's dating history features a number of glamorous names these days—from Kaia Gerber (who is now Austin Butler's girlfriend) to his engagement with Ariana Grande and of course, his relationship with Kim Kardashian. And following his recently reported fling with Emily Ratajakowski, the internet has seemingly been on high alert for his next celebrity pairing.
No one's romantic sitch seems to make headlines like the former SNL star's, so much so that relationship rumors seem to keep springing up from nowhere at all—which brings us to these Ice Spice theories...
So, why is Twitter suddenly linking Pete Davidson to the rapper, Ice Spice (real name, Isis Gaston) and how did the speculation even start?
So, is Pete Davidson dating Ice Spice?
Well, it seems unlike those Kendall Jenner and Bad Bunny romance rumors that were prompted by gossip sites like DeuxMoi, Twitter started this latest romance speculation all on its own.
In fact, what seemingly started as memes and predictions over Pete's love life, actually ended up sparking the whole Pete Davison Ice Spice debacle, sending users into a full-on tailspin. For example, one user tweeted: "Hear me out one time…it’s June 2023, Pete Davidson & Ice Spice are dating".

While another added: "I give it 6 months til Pete Davidson is dating Ice Spice."

This sudden celeb pairing understandably took some fans for a loop, especially since, last we heard, Pete was reportedly dating his Bodies, Bodies, Bodies costar, Chase Sui Wonders—with the pair spotted together at the beginning of February 2023.
Now though, Twitter has done what Twitter does best and turned the whole situation into a meme, with some users even taking credit for the origin of the rumor...
