More than three months after Pete's split with Kim Kardashian, a source close to Emily exclusively tells E! News that the Saturday Night Live alum and the model have "gone on a few dates" together in New York City. While the two have known each other for years, the insider shares that they reconnected after "Pete texted Emily wanting to get together to catch up."
"Emily thinks Pete is a lot of fun to hang out with," the source says, adding, "Emily thinks Pete is charming and they have flirtatious chemistry right now."
"She's not exclusively dating anyone and is having fun," the source explains. "Emily is in her 'single girl era' and wants to see what's out there."
Indeed, Emily has been back on the dating scene since September, when she filed for divorce from husband Sebastian Bear-McClard following four years of marriage. (Interestingly enough, Sebastian—who shares 20-month-old son Sylvester with Emily—was a producer on Pete's 2022 comedy-slasher Bodies Bodies Bodies.)
As for her thoughts on Pete? The Gone Girl actress previously noted that the "super charming" comedian does have some sort of allure, based on her experience working with him on a Moose Knuckles fashion campaign. "He's a professional," she said during an appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers last year. "Obviously, women find him very attractive."
Emily added at the time that people "love" seeing Pete's softer side, including his "great relationship with his mom."
"He's vulnerable," she said. "He's lovely."
