Some fans were surprised when Kardashian announced her relationship with Davidson earlier this year. They believed the "The Kardashians" star and the former "SNL" cast member weren't the best fit for each other. However, it didn't shock others as Davidson was popular for dating high-profile celebs before her. 

In 2018, he dated and got engaged to popular singer Ariana Grande. He also dated actress and model Margaret Qualley in 2019 and "Bridgerton" star Phoebe Dynevor in 2021. When asked how he dated several famous people, a source revealed to US Weekly that women were very attracted to the comedian's personality.

It's not all that surprising to the folks who know him that he's such a hit with the ladies." While Davidson has a way with women, there's something else he wants more than anything in the world.

The "Suicide Squad" star has been open about his mental health issues and his Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) diagnosis. He also admitted in 2018 that his struggle worsened following the breakup with Grande. 

On Instagram at the time, he wrote (as per US Weekly), "I've been getting bullied online and in public by people for 9 months. I've spoken about BPD and being suicidal publicly only in the hopes that it will help bring awareness and help kids like myself who don't want to be on this earth."
