The internet was shocked recently when rumors surfaced that burgeoning rapper Ice Spice and Pete Davidson were dating.
While other netizens seemed to have taken the news without a grain of salt, many have pointed out that the rumor was, in fact, just a satire.
The rumor spread like wildfire from obvious internet jokes that targeted gullible netizens, raising even more concerns given the age difference between the two and the coincidence of it all.
Davidson is coming off one of the most publicized relationships and breakups of 2022 with Kim Kardashian. The comedian has taken a lot of jabs and bullets from Kim’s ex-husband, Kanye West, who has been verbally abusive about their relationship on social media.
According to TMZ, Pete Davidson is not dating Ice Spice because he is currently dating his “Bodies, Bodies, Bodies” co-star Chase Sui Wonders.
The two were photographed during their public display of affection at the Daytona 500 on Feb. 20, 2023.
For collecting women as Infinity Stones, netizens have compared Davidson to Marvel villain Thanos.
Davidson has dated Ariana Grande, Kim Kardashian, Phoebe Dynevor from “Bridgerton,” and even model Emily Ratajkowski.
On the other hand, Ice Spice appeared unfazed by the wild internet speculation because she is focused on improving her rap game.
The collaboration of Ice Spice and PinkPantheress for “Boys Are Liar Pt 2” appeared to be a huge win for both of them.
Last week, the two newcomers charted the song at No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100, marking their first track to reach the coveted Top 10.
The song rose to No. 4 after debuting at No. 14, following Miley Cyrus’ “Flowers,” SZA’s “Kill Bill,” and Metro Boomin’s “Creepin.”
On this week’s Billboard Hot 100 charts, “Boys Are Liar Pt 2” achieved a new feat by reaching No. 3, surpassing “Creepin’.”
According to Chart Data, “Boys Are Liar Pt 2” was the best-selling single in the United States for the first time this week, selling 225,000 units.
Given its new accomplishment, it could be in a three-way battle for No. 1 with Miley Cyrus’ “Flowers” and The Weeknd & Ariana Grande’s “Die For Your (Remix)” next week.
