Kate Beckinsale’s ex Matt Rife tells Pete Davidson to ‘run’

Comedian Matt Rife, who dated Kate Beckinsale in 2017, has one word for her new man Pete Davidson: “Run.”

Rife, 23, told TMZ that he dated Beckinsale for a year when she was 43 and he was 21, and that the relationship was “complicated, for sure.”

“A lot of ups and downs,” he added.

The MTV star did not disclose why things didn’t work out between them, but said he was optimistic that the outcome would be better for the 45-year-old actress and 25-year-old “SNL” star.

“I’m hoping that they both found … or are getting out of it whatever they want to get out of it,” Rife said. “Enjoy it while you can. I hope they’re both happy. I hope that it can build to where it’s an established good relationship.”

But before leaving the TMZ camera crew, Rife left Davidson with one final warning, “I don’t really have any solid advice — just be careful.”

In response to whether he would ever rekindle a romance with Beckinsale, Rife said, “Absolutely not. Not a chance.”

Page Six broke the news that Beckinsale and Davidson were spotted flirting at a Golden Globes party back in January. Since then, the couple have gone public and recently attended a Rangers game, where they packed on the PDA.
