Kaia Gerber, 20, is one of the most successful models in the world, having taken the catwalk by storm and fronting some of the most well-known companies. Despite the fact that her hectic schedule provides little time for dating, the supermodel daughter of runway queen Cindy Crawford has been in four high-profile romances to date, further enhancing her celebrity.
Currently unmarried, the Calvin Klein and Yves Saint Laurent ambassador has reportedly scrubbed any signs of her previous relationships from her Instagram account, focusing instead on work, family, and her passion for reading. Kaia, on the other hand, didn’t do it out of spite, but rather out of her persistent drive to look forward and improve herself.
Kaia Gerber’s Dating History:
Fenton Merkell, a fellow model, was Kaia’s first supposed boyfriend. Kaia was 16 at the time, and Fenton was 17. They apparently started dating in December 2017.
Aside from having modeling in common — Kaia was already an IMG Model star, whereas Fenton modeled with Los Angeles management company The Dragonfly Agency — the duo also came from celebrity parents, with Fenton being the son of British soap opera star Patsy Palmer.
In fact, according to Harper’s BAZAAR UK, Kaia and Fenton met through their famous mothers, who became friends after Patsy left Eastenders in 2014 and relocated to Los Angeles.
“Fenton and Kaia have been close friends for a long time thanks to their mothers’ closeness, and it’s blossomed into something more in recent months… It’s still early days, but they’ve become close and appear to be extremely happy together,” a source told the British Sun in late 2017.
Kaia and Fenton were last seen together in January 2018, after dating for a year. Fenton, who doesn’t have a social media profile, began dating Lisa Rinna’s daughter, Amelia Hamlin, two months later.
In February 2019, Kaia moved on with another model and began dating Wellington Grant. The couple fueled romance speculations after they were seen leaving the Mercer Hotel in New York City on Valentine’s Day, according to US Weekly.
Despite the fact that their romance barely lasted two months, Kaia and Wellington — who were 17 and 18 at the time — were frequently sighted backstage at fashion shows, with the pair even walking the runway together for Stella McCartney during Paris Fashion Week in March.
According to Elite Daily, Wellington joined Kaia and her parents for dinner at Nobu just a month after their previous public appearance.
Later that year, Kaia told British Vogue that their relationship was short-lived because she was too preoccupied with her already successful career: “I don’t have the energy to even flirt with somebody when I’m working.”
Kaia stunned fans with her whirlwind romance with SNL comic Pete Davidson in late 2019. The couple was originally linked in October of that year, when TMZ published images of them having lunch at Sadelle’s in New York City. They were already dating in November, with a date set for January 2020.
Fans were outraged that Pete, then 26, was dating an 18-year-old Kaia, as previously reported by The Inquisitr, and they slammed the comic on Twitter. Kaia’s parents were also apprehensive about the connection, especially since Pete had a bit of a reputation as a lothario.
The actor has previously been linked to a number of high-profile women, including Ariana Grande and Kate Beckinsale, and was said to have made an impression on Kaia.
In early December, a source informed Radar Online, “It’s everyone’s worst nightmare scenario, especially her parents.” “Kaia is joking around with her friends about Pete being ‘The One,’ and how she can imagine herself growing old with him and having his children.” They’re all over each other right now, and no one should be surprised if [a pregnancy] occurs sooner rather than later.”
The supermodel alarmed Instagram followers when she hinted about marriage and pregnancy in a handful of photos, according to CheatSheet.
A source informed Page Six that Kaia found the relationship “overwhelming” after the two parted ways when Pete sought some time to “focus on his mental health.”
“Pete has a specific way of doing things, and he’s quite serious about his women.” Kaia is only 18 years old, and she has a lot on her plate.”
During an Instagram Live with Lena Dunham in April 2020, the model discussed how she was “co-dependent” in her relationship with Pete and that it wasn’t healthy.
After being sighted with 2 Hearts star Jacob Elordi, 24, a few times in September 2020, Kaia had tongues churning over a possible new man in her life. The supermodel and the Australian actor, who had previously been linked to his Euphoria co-star Zendaya, made their Instagram relationship official on Halloween and dated for a year until splitting up last month.
Kaia and Jacob kept their love affair mainly hidden in the aftermath of her highly publicized tryst with Pete, only revealing peeks into their romance during red carpet appearances. According to reports, the couple even received Kaia’s parents’ okay, with a source telling US Weekly earlier this April that Cindy and Rande Gerber “love Jacob and think he’s a fantastic fit for Kaia,” as reported by Life & Style.
“It seemed as if the cosmos conspired to bring them together!” “They’re both models who have modeled for Calvin Klein and are obviously fashion-conscious,” the person stated. “They enjoy going shopping and even exercising together. They are, without a doubt, some of the nicest people you will ever encounter.”
The former pair, who have an Instagram account dedicated to recording their romance under the handle “kelordi official,” apparently split up owing to work schedule conflicts.
“Their schedules were incompatible, and they didn’t spend much time together,” a source told In Touch. “It appeared that they were going backwards rather than forwards, which is why it wasn’t functioning.”
