An unexpected romance. After shocking fans with their relationship in 2021, Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson have called it quits.
“They amicably split this week,” an insider told Us Weekly in August 2022. The breakup came after the two had been dating for nine months.
Prior to their decision to part ways, Kardashian and Davidson were trying to make things work from a distance. “Kim and Pete are in constant communication,” a separate insider said earlier in August, noting that their different “time zones and filming call times make talking difficult.”
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians alum was first linked to the Saturday Night Live star in October 2021, eight months after she filed for divorce from Kanye West. (The former couple, who wed in 2014, share daughters North and Chicago and sons Saint and Psalm.)
While Kardashian and Davidson were friendly over the years — he even called Kimye the “cutest couple” after attending Kid Cudi’s birthday dinner with the spouses in 2019 — the KKW Beauty mogul bonded with the Set It Up actor when she hosted SNL.
“He was a true professional the whole time they rehearsed and in between takes, but afterward things got flirty,” a source told Us at the time. “They exchanged numbers and Pete asked if Kim would like to hang out sometime, which she agreed to straight away.”
Following a group Halloween outing, Kardashian and Davidson were spotted on a series of dinner dates. By mid-November 2021, an insider told Us that she was “falling for” him.
“Everything flows well [when they’re together],” the source said.
As the duo heated up, West, meanwhile, made a series of public pleas to try to win Kardashian back. The rapper also alleged that he wasn’t served with divorce papers. The Selfish author subsequently filed paperwork to be declared legally single amid divorce proceedings.
