Watch: Pete Davidson Doesn't Get The Interest In His Love Life

Pete Davidson is coming clean about his rumored "BDE."

Whispers about his alleged "Big Dick Energy" have followed the comedian since his engagement to Ariana Grande in 2018. It's something Kim Kardashian even admitted intrigued her about the Saturday Night Live alum before they started dating in 2021.

Now, Pete is saying the rumors are not totally true.

"I don't understand," he said on The Breakfast Club April 13. "It's really not that special. It's just [a] very normal-sized penis. It's not too big or too small." 

In fact, the 29-year-old revealed some feedback he has received in the past, noting, "It's just like big enough to enjoy and not big enough for it to hurt, is what I was told."

Pete has previously said that he wasn't too thrilled when Ariana publicly hinted about the size of his manhood. 

"I don't like that she talked all that s--t for my penis," he said at a 2019 comedy show, per People. "Everything is huge to her. Why would she tell everyone that I have a huge penis? So that every girl who sees my dick for the rest of my life is disappointed."

And though Pete is now tempering expectations, his buddy Jay Pharoah previously claimed that the Bodies Bodies Bodies star once believed his popularity with women was due to "his endowment."

"That's what he told me it is," Jay said of the "big dog" on The Jess Cagle Show in November. "'It's like nine inches.'"

Kim, for one, couldn't help but think about his big reputation after she felt a little "zing," as she put it, during their kiss on SNL.

"It wasn't anything like a super, crazy feeling," the Kardashians star said on the Not Skinny But Not Fat podcast last year. "A few days later, I was like, 'Hmm, there is some BDE action." (The pair dated for nine months and split last August.)

However, if it was up to Pete—who is now dating co-star Chase Sui Wonders—there would be a lot less focus on his love life, as he doesn't understand the public interest.

"I'm in my 20s and I've dated people and for some reason, that's very crazy and interesting to people," he said on the Real Ones With Jon Berthnal podcast on March 30. "In 10 years, I've dated 12 people... I don't think that's that crazy, but to some people, that's very interesting. That became all anyone would talk about."
