Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson have walked away from their relationship. Sources tell ET that the duo was first introduced in the midst of Kim hosting Saturday Night Live in Oct. 2021, and has split the knot after nine months of a relationship. “Pete and Kim broke up. The distance has been hard and things were starting to fizzle out,” the source claims. “Pete being away for so long was hard for them. Kim is doing well and she knows she has a lot going on. Pete has been super busy as well.”
After having the kiss during SNL, Kim and Pete received attention when they were spotted touching hands on an incline. There were a few dates that followed before the source revealed to ET more details about the couple’s relationship. “Kim and Pete are casually dating and seeing where things go,” the source told. “Pete is really into Kim and excited about her. Kim likes Pete as well, but isn’t rushing into anything serious.” The couple soon flew on a holiday and tensions with Kim’s ex, Kanye “Ye” West began.
“Pete and Kim had a great time on their trip to the Bahamas and are continuing to have a lot of fun together,” an insider informed ET in January. “Kanye still isn’t too thrilled by Pete and Kim’s relationship, but is doing his best to stay distracted, busy, and fulfilled with his own life.” The situation exploded after Kanye made fun of Pete in a track entitled “Eazy.” Pete seemed to be unbothered however and even referred Kim to be”his “girlfriend” for the first time in the following days. “Pete finds Kanye’s lyrics and interviews about him funny and entertaining. He is super chill about the situation and doesn’t take it too personally,” an insider said to ET in February. “But he hates that Kim has to deal with the drama.”
Pete kept the humor going as Kanye dropped the video to his song “Eazy,” which shows the rapper abducting and burying an animal-like clay figure that resembles the comedian. “He finds the fact that Kanye included a cartoon version of him in his music video hysterical,” an unnamed source said to ET. “He is almost flattered by it all because it is so ridiculous to him. [Pete] is not threatened by Kanye in any way, shape, or form.” The once-fiancé made Instagram officially in the month of March. which was the same month when fans noticed what was believed to be Kim’s name tattooed across Pete’s chest. “Kim and Pete are super serious and they both want to take their relationship to the next level,” sources informed ET in April. “They are enamored with each other and are continuing to work on seeing their relationship blossom further, regardless of the drama that Kanye previously created.”
Kim made an uncharacteristic public comment regarding her relationship earlier that month in which she informed Robin Roberts that she felt “at peace” with Davidson. “I am a relationship kind of girl, for sure, and I wouldn’t be with someone if I didn’t plan on spending a lot of my time with them,” she explained. “Obviously, I want to take my time, but I’m very happy and very content. And, it’s such a good feeling to be at peace.” Then, just a few days later, the couple made the first time in their first public appearance together at the Los Angeles premiere of Hulu’s The Kardashians. That same month they made their debut on the red carpet at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.
“He’s just super genuine, and it’s just super fun to just hang out and do nothing then watch TV and just do nothing,” Kim stated to ET about Pete when he was in the scene. “My favorite thing is finding someone to do nothing with. It’s the best.” The highly-publicized relationship of the couple reached new heights in the month of May when Kim 41, and Pete who is 28, went to the Met Gala side-by-side. The moment The Kardashians premiered, fans were able to get a better understanding of the couple’s love story in which Kim admitted to having made their first relationship with Pete and also hinted that she had the most amazing relationship ever with the comedian.
In the course of their romance, Pete became close to Kim and Kanye’s four children -the following: North 9 Saint 6, Chicago 4, and Psalm 3. “Kim and her family discussed how they’ve always navigated being a blended family well and that Kim had to do what was right for her and Pete,” A source informed ET at the time of June. “The kids and Pete get along very well and Kim seeing him be so great with them only made her fall in love with Pete more.” “Pete and Kim are so in love. Kim is light and happy with Pete and it shows in so many ways, including being a mom, with her work, in her friendships, and more,” one source informed ET the following month. “Pete has made a real effort to immerse himself into Kim’s world and with her family and kids. He is so amazing with her children and she loves seeing him be silly with them and take an interest in their lives.” In July, matters were said to be more serious than ever. A source said to ET the pair Kim along with Pete “will do whatever it takes to maintain and balance their professional and personal lives together.”
“Kim and Pete’s relationship is going better than ever and they are closer and more in love than ever before,” the source stated. “They are both extremely busy with work, but they both make constant efforts to ensure that they see and spend time together on a relatively consistent basis, even if that means flying thousands of miles to be with each other.” Although their relationship appeared to be solid the source stated, “Pete definitely wants to be a dad, and Kim has spoken about that, but they are focused on building their relationship right now.”
