“Pete only has eyes for Kate,” an insider told the outlet. “She’s cool and fun. It’s long distance, but they’re taking it slow.”
On Monday, February 18, the Staten Island native, 25, was seen hanging out with the Girl Code alum, 28, at The Paramount in Huntington, New York. Marcus Russell Price — who is Pete’s photographer — shared an Instagram Story of the former couple and fellow comedians Dave Sirus and Derek Gaines. “No, your eyes are red,” Marcus captioned the snap.
According to an insider, Pete and Carly both performed on stage. “Pete seemed like he was in a great mood and more organized with his jokes than usual,” they noted.
It’s unclear how long the Big Time Adolescence actor dated the MTV personality for, but they called it quits in 2015. Now, the two are “just friends,” according to the source.
Pete and Kate, 45, made headlines when they were spotted at a Golden Globes afterparty together in January. Even though the pair have not addressed their relationship status, they made it pretty clear that they are very much into each other since they held hands in Los Angeles in early February.
“She makes him laugh,” the source continued. “He thinks she’s great and really smart. They have an incredible physical connection.”
Pete had quite the year — he was engaged to Ariana Grande, but sadly the two split after four months together. Now, it seems like the comedian is finally in a good place. “Kate has really helped Pete get over his breakup with Ariana Grande. It’s still [in the] early days, and right now they’re just having fun,” a source exclusively told In Touch.
It seems like things are clearly heating up between these two.
