Following speculation on social media that she might be dating Pete Davidson, Martha Stewart has issued a statement.
The news that comedian Pete Davidson had broken up with his reality TV star girlfriend Kim Kardashian made headlines last week.
But even though Davidson’s relationship with the Skims expert may have ended, there have been many rumors that he has already moved on to another woman.
Rumors of a love relationship started to spread after a photo of him holding hands with 81-year-old TV personality Stewart went viral on social media.
At the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner in April, Davidson, Stewart, and Kardashian are seen mugging for the camera in the image.
The two appeared to be closely holding hands, and astute viewers noted that Davidson looked just as intimate with Stewart as with his ex-girlfriend Kardashian.
“We should’ve seen this coming,” one person captioned the snap.

Nevertheless, Stewart has put the rumors to rest despite the speculation. She made it obvious in an interview with the Daily Mail that she saw Davidson more as a son than a lover.
“Pete Davidson is like the son I never had,” she told the outlet, adding: “He is a charming boy who is finding his way.”
Kardashian and Davidson dated for nine months before making the separation official earlier this month. According to a source, the separation was caused in part by the strain of distant distances and hectic schedules.
“They have a lot of love and respect for each other, but found that the long distance and their demanding schedules made it really difficult to maintain a relationship,” they told PageSix.
Davidson was briefly engaged to singer Ariana Grande prior to his liaison with the reality TV personality. Additionally, he briefly dated Phoebe Dynevor, who played Bridgerton, and Kate Beckinsale, who is an actor.
Andrew Stewart, a publisher, and Stewart were wed for 26 years. She has been dating millionaire Charles Simonyi since they broke up in 1990. They dated for 15 years before calling it quits in 2008.
