The fairytale is over! It has been reported that actress Phoebe Dynevor and American comedian Pete Davidson have broken up after six months of being together. The Bridgerton star and the SNL star were working in their long-distance relationship but apparently, it did not work at all.
According to The Sun UK, the former couple broke up over their busy work schedules because they were no longer seeing each other as frequently as before. A source said: “Pete and Phoebe’s romance was a real whirlwind and from the start, they were both totally committed. But as time has passed, it’s become increasingly obvious it is going to be difficult to make this work.”
The source also revealed that both are working on their own projects, making it impossible for them to reunite again. “Phoebe has had back-to-back filming dates with Bridgerton in the UK. Meanwhile, Pete has been back in the US filming Saturday Night Live. Alongside that, he has just started working on a new film, Meet Cute, with Kaley Cuoco.”
The outlet also notes that even if they had their schedules aligned, flying around is difficult nowadays due to the pandemic restrictions. “Phoebe and Pete were last together in the UK in July but since he flew back to the States, he’s not seen her. Obviously, all the travel restrictions because of the pandemic have not helped. People can’t just jump on planes and jet around the world when they want to. It has made everything more difficult. It was pretty telling when Phoebe headed to Croatia with her mates this week rather than going to see Pete in America. It was wild while it lasted… But the distance has put a strain on them. They will remain close but unless something drastic changes their relationship won’t recover.”
In some ways, the split comes as a surprise for everyone because just last month it was revealed things were getting very serious between the two with Davidson hinting about marriage after meeting the actress’ parents. And even last month they were all charming and loving at Wimbledon while kissing and cuddling. According to People, Phoebe and Pete are believed to have started dating back in March 2021 when Dynevor was said to be “spending time” with Davidson in New York, though they seemingly didn’t confirm their relationship until April. Since then, they have been seen wearing matching necklaces and traveling around to see each other. Prior to this relationship, Pete Davidson was engaged to Ariana Grande, dated Kate Beckinsale, Kaia Gerber, and Cazzie David. Pete is the first one to publicly date Phoebe Dynevor.
