The funnyman told TMZ outside of the iconic Laugh Factory in West Hollywood he thinks Davidson, 25, should pump the brakes with Beckinsale, 45.
“Advice for Pete? Man-to-man... run,” Rife, 23, said before clarifying his remark. “Enjoy it. Enjoy it while you can – I hope they’re both happy and can build to where it’s an established relationship… I wish them both the best. I don’t have any solid advice, just be careful."
Rife indicated to the gossip outlet that he and Beckinsale met at the Laugh Factory and struck up a romance in March 2017 when she was 43 and Rife was just 21, adding that their relationship was "complicated."
“We dated for a year, and it was... um, complicated for sure,” Rife explained. “A lot of ups and downs. But, she’s moved on, and I hope they both found or are getting out of it what they want to get out of it.”
This past Sunday, Beckinsale and Davidson were photographed kissing during a hockey game at Madison Square Garden where the New York Rangers faced the Washington Capitals.
The couple seemingly has remained inseparable since they were first rumored to be dating following a Golden Globes party in which they were spotted flirting together.
Shortly afterward, Davidson and the “Underworld” actress were photographed holding hands as they left a comedy club in Los Angeles after Davidson played a set.
Beckinsale was married to director Len Wiseman from 2004 to 2016.
