Kim Kardashian ‘Couldn’t Wait’ to See Pete Davidson After Filing to Be Legally Single

 Kim Kardashian is working her hardest to be free of her estranged husband, Kanye West. She filed for divorce from the rapper earlier this year and then filed to be legally single earlier this month. Now, sources close to the star are saying that the SKIMS founder was eager to see her new beau,  Pete Davidson, after filing.

Kim Kardashian was eager to see Pete

Kardashian flew to New York to be with Davidson over the weekend because she “couldn’t wait” to see him.

 “After filing these papers to become legally single and drop West from her last name over a week ago, the only thing that Kim really wanted was to see Pete,” a source told HollywoodLife. “Although she is still waiting for the divorce to be finalized with Kanye, she feels like she is finally free for the shackles of their former marriage. Kim jokes to her friends that, even though she is legally single, she is happily taken.”

While in New York, Kardashian and Davidson went to the movies together and ate at Angelina’s Ristorante. Davidson even introduced Kim to his mother.

“Kim did not expect to be dating anyone for a long time, but the way it happened with Pete feels like divine intervention,” the source said. “They don’t talk about Hollywood, or celebrities, or their money, or their fame. Their conversations are real and authentic. They talk a lot about life and death, about spirituality, about current world affairs and about her work in criminal justice reform. Pete is fascinated by her intelligence and really digs the fact that she is set on becoming a lawyer.”

Kim and Pete’s relationship

Kardashian and Davidson connected when she hosted Saturday Night Live. Shortly after, the two were spotted out and about together before news broke that they were officially in a relationship.

“Kim is absolutely head over heels for Pete,” a friend of Kardashian told HollywoodLife. “In all honesty, she didn’t know what to expect when she first started seeing him. She knows it would be a big deal in the media, but she had such a great time with him during her Saturday Night Live appearance and thought why not. But she never saw this coming and now she can’t get enough of him. When Kim is with Pete, she’s all about him, she can’t stop smiling. It’s really cute and she totally gets butterflies around him.”

Kanye West wants Kim Kardashian back

Despite Kardashian getting closer to Davidson and filing to be legally single, West is still holding out hope that he and his wife can get back together. He recently gave a speech at the LA Mission, claiming that God would bring him and Kardashian back together. During his and Drake’s benefit concert for Larry Hoover, he publicly asked Kardashian to come back to him.
