Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson have reportedly broken up, according to multiple outlets. On Aug. 5, a source told E! News that the “Saturday Night Live” alum and Kardashian, 41, have decided to end their relationship. People then reported similarly.
A source told E! News that Kardashian and Davidson have “love and respect for each other,” but doing long distance amid “demanding schedules” made maintaining a relationship difficult. Both outlets reported that the breakup happened this week.
The source also told E! News that Kardashian is still going forward with her divorce from Kanye West. “The divorce is moving ahead with Kanye,” the source said. “They are happily co-parenting.”
Davidson, 28, and Kardashian first met at the Met Gala in September 2021, a month prior to her gig hosting “Saturday Night Live” that October. During one sketch, the pair shared a kiss — foreshadowing what was to come. The “vibe” was there, Kardashian revealed during an episode of her family’s Hulu series: “A few days later, I called the producer at ‘SNL,’ and I was like, ‘Hey, do you have Pete’s number?’ And they were like, ‘Yeah!'” The Skims mogul admitted that at the time, she was just looking for a hookup — but things with Davidson evolved.
Of course, it wasn’t the first romance for either. Kardashian married rapper West in 2014, and the couple share four children (North, 9; Saint, 6; Chicago, 4; and Psalm, 3). She filed for divorce from West in February 2021.
And Davidson was previously engaged to pop star Ariana Grande from June 2018 to that October. Prior to Kardashian, his most recent public romance was with “Bridgerton” star Phoebe Dynevor, but he’s also been linked to Margaret Qualley and Kate Beckinsale.
