Kim Kardashian And Pete Davidson breakup after 9 months of dating
American TV personality, Kim Kardashian, 41, and Pete Davidson, 28, have called their 9 months relationship a quit.
According to PEOPLE, the duo who were first romantically linked in October 2021, ended their relationship this week.
“Kim and Pete have decided to just be friends. They have a lot of love and respect for each other, but found that the long distance and their demanding schedules made it really difficult to maintain a relationship,” a source close to Kardashian shares
Recall that Kardashian and the Saturday Night Live comedian, 28, shared an onscreen kiss for a sketch during the SKIMS mogul’s SNL hosting debut on Oct. 9, 2021.
Speaking about the kiss with Pete at the time, Kim said;
“When we kissed, I was just like, ‘Hmm!’ It was a stage kiss, but it was still like, a little zing. It wasn’t anything like a super-crazy feeling. I was just like, ‘Hmm,’ and then I was like, ‘Wow, I really haven’t kissed anyone else in 10 years, so maybe I’m just like being stupid and it’s just nothing and it’s just a stage kiss.”
The two continued to spend time together after Knott’s Scary Farm, including when Kardashian traveled to Davidson’s native Staten Island, New York, to have dinner at Campania, an Italian restaurant, the next month.
Kardashian and Davidson also showed up to the 2022 Met Gala for a starry date night. Though Kardashian’s choice to wear Marilyn Monroe’s dress might have been controversial, her evening with Davidson was nothing but smooth sailing, with her date showering her with affection and helping her navigate the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s famous steps in her formfitting gown.
Kardashian and Davidson’s relationship marked the first for the Kardashians star after her split from Kanye West. Together the pair share daughters North, 9, and Chicago, 4, as well as sons Saint, 6, and Psalm, 3.
The mom of four filed for divorce from West, 45, in February 2021. A source had previously disclosed that Davidson was “exactly what Kim needed after her divorce.”
“Someone to make her laugh and just have a fun time with, the end of her marriage was a very dark time for her and Pete has been the best antidote,” the source said at the time.
