Pete Davidson Says He’s Living With His Mom
It sounds like Kate Beckinsale is learning the hard way what it’s like having to deal with a barely post-adolescent man-child, and is probably thanking her lucky stars she had a girl instead of a boy. And Pete Davidson’s mom is probably wishing the same thing right about now. Pete appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and revealed that he’s currently living in his mom’s basement, playing arcade games, and popping boners for animated video game chicks.
Okay, it’s not as bad as it sounds. Pete said he actually bought the house with his mom and lives in the basement apartment (via Entertainment Weekly):
“So I live with my mom… well we bought a house together, but nobody believes that. So I live with my mom, kinda,” he shared. “So I have, like, a basement that’s mine, but that’s, like, an apartment, so I live underneath her.”
Pete went on to say that he was calling the “The Man Cave” for a while until his friend John Mulaney urged him to stop that immediately. Maybe John reminded him that he has a high paying, highly sought after job as a comedy writer on Saturday Night Live, not a job bussing dishes at a New Jersey Applebee’s and taking bong hits with high schoolers in the parking lot after his shift.
“I was calling it The Man Cave, but the Mulaneys told me that if I call it that they will no longer be my friend,” he quipped of comedian John Mulaney and his wife, Anna. “So, now I call it The Basement like The Ohio State University. I don’t like that college. It’s the ‘the’ that’s the important part.”
Pete also raised speculation that he may no longer be going to The Bone Zone (hey, I don’t work at SNL, cut me some slack) with Kate by saying he’s lonely and horny. Speaking about the Mortal Kombat character Johnny Cage he said:
“Also he has, like, a hot daughter, which is weird because I’m, like, lonely and she’s, like, not real,” he said with a laugh. “So there’s that in the video game as well — sexual confusion. The effects are, like, really good.”
Here’s the clip. Skip ahead to 2:45 unless you really want to hear about what Kanye orders for dinner at Nobu.
It actually seems to me that living with his mom and beating off to cartoon titties is probably good for Pete. And Kate’s probably so relieved that Pete’s not showing up on her doorstep every three days with a basket full of jizz socks and filthy underwear for her to wash and fold.
