Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson reportedly broke up after 9 months of dating

On Aug. 5, media outlets reported that Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson broke up after nine months of dating. The couple got together in October 2021 after the reality star hosted an episode of Saturday Night Live. The two stars shared an on-stage kiss during a skit in which Davidson played Disney’s Aladdin and Kardashian played Princess Jasmine. The reality star later said there were sparks during that first kiss, making her curious about the comedian. 

The two have been spotted on romantic dates across the globe. Although Davidson is not on social media, Kardashian has shared several photos of the couple on her Instagram. The SNL star even got the SKIMS mogul’s name branded on his chest and a tattoo of her four children’s initials on his neck. 

According to E! News, there is no drama between 41-year-old Kardashian and 28-year-old Davidson. A source told the publication that the former couple will remain friends. 

The insider said that although Davidson and Kardashian have “a lot of love and respect for each other,” the long distance between them and their busy schedules “made it really difficult to maintain a relationship.”

Another source told the publication that although Kardashian and Davidson split, the reality star has no plans to get back together with Kanye West, and the divorce is still in progress.
