The kiss that Kardashian and Davidson enjoyed on Saturday Night Live in October 2021 as their characters, Aladdin and Princess Jasmine, set up suspicions that the two were romantically involved.
After dating for only nine months, Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson have decided to go their own ways and end their relationship.
According to E!, which was the publication that broke the news first, the pair opted to keep their connection as friends since “it made it incredibly tough to continue a romance” due to their hectic schedules and the distance between them.
Billboard has reached out to the representatives of the exes in order to get a further comment on the matter.
The reality TV star and the comedian first sparked speculations of a romantic relationship in October 2021, when they had a kiss while playing the roles of Aladdin and Princess Jasmine on Saturday Night Live, which Kardashian was hosting at the time. In November, they were observed together on a date to Knott’s Scary Farm, which led many to believe that their relationship had been established.
Since then, they have traveled together on a number of occasions, including attending the Met Gala and walking the red carpet together. Additionally, in the month of March, Davidson received a tattoo that reads, “My girl is a lawyer.”
“Pete did not come to my afterparty, and everyone was at my afterparty,” Kardashian stated of her budding friendship with Davidson during the first season of Hulu’s The Kardashians.
The show follows the lives of the Kardashian family, who are famous for their reality television show. “He does not even bother to acknowledge my existence. After that, a few days later, I called the producer of Saturday Night Live and asked, “Hey, do you have Pete’s number?”
They responded, “Yeah.” I sent him a text, and the thought that crossed my mind was more along the lines of “Oh my God, I’m going to be in a relationship with him.” Just now I was thinking, “Wait, I’ve heard about this BDE, I really need to get out there.” I just need to give my engine a jolt — [laughs] I was virtually dead in the water.”
She went on to say, “Pete is without a doubt, literally, the best human being I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting.” “The noblest of hearts. People are often saying things like, “Oh, he’s so funny, and [the relationship] has to do with how funny he is.” [The relationship] has to do with how funny he is.
That’s somewhere about the fourth reason on my list of reasons why I like him. He never stops hoping for the best for other people, is capable of dealing with any situation, and always maintains his grace. He is really attentive, modest, and sincere all at the same time. Sincerity is the attribute that comes to mind first when I think about Pete.
The beginning of Kardashian and Davidson’s relationship occurred only a few short months after the creator of SKIMS filed for divorce from Kanye West, with whom she shares the children North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm. Davidson and Kardashian share four children together.
