It’s time to keep up with Kim Kardashian now that she’s single. Sources close to the pair told E! News that The Kardashians star and Pete Davidson have broken up and decided to stay friends.
Insiders say that even though the two “love and respect each other a lot,” their busy schedules and the fact that they live far apart “made it hard to keep a relationship going.” Sometime this week, they broke up.
Pete has been making the movie Wizards! In Australia for part of the summer. Kim is still raising her four children, North, Psalm, Chicago, and Saint, with her ex-husband Kanye West.
Another insider tells E! News, “Kanye’s divorce is moving forward.” They are getting along well as co-parents.
In November, an insider told E! News that Pete and Kim Kardashians were dating. At the time, the insider said both sides were pleased with how things were going. The source said, “Pete has told her he doesn’t want to see anyone else.” “She is telling some people that they aren’t that serious, but she isn’t seeing anyone else. She’s really into him but doesn’t want to make a big deal out of it.”
When Kim hosted Saturday Night Live in October, they kissed for the first time. They got closer over the next few months to each other assertive.
In April, Kim said on the Not Skinny But Not Fat podcast, “It was a stage kiss, but it still had a little zing.” “It wasn’t like a crazy feeling at all.”
“After a few days, I thought, “Hmm, there’s some BDE action,'” she said, remembering that Pete had missed her SNL after-party. “I gave it more thought afterward. I thought, “Man, he’s the only one who didn’t show up.”
After they married, he got close to her kids and made a quick appearance on her Hulu show, The Kardashians. A sneak peeks of them showering together hinted that Pete will be in the second season, which starts this fall.
Over the past nine months, the couple didn’t shy away from PDA. They got matching tattoos and went to the Met Gala together. In June, Kim’s sister Khloe Kardashian went so far as to say that she and the comedian were “LOOOOOVVVVEEEE.”
Pete said on Hart to Hart last month that having kids is “my dream” and that he wants to settle down one day. He said, “Right now, I’m just trying to get as good as a guy, to grow better, so that when it does, it’s a positive experience easier.”
A source recently told E! News that the couple tried to make their long-distance relationship work while Pete was filming in Australia. “Even when they’re not together, they talk all the time,” the insider said. “Kim loves that he makes her laugh all the time, and when they talk, he makes her day.”
Now that the Kete era is over, these talks might be over.
