The forty-one-year-old Keeping Up with the Kardashians star and SKIMS founder, Kim Kardashian, is officially in a relationship with the twenty-eight-year-old comedian and Saturday Night Live cast member Pete Davidson. According to Page Six, they have “exclusively learned” that it is official between the two.
After that cute smooch they shared in an SNL sketch last October 9, things started getting pretty close between Kardashian and Davidson, and the excited fans have tuned in since then. Following those times, sources expressed that the two stars were only hanging out as “close friends”.
Davidson and Kardashian first crossed paths last 2019 in rapper Kid Cudi’s birthday celebration which Kim and her now estranged husband rapper Kanye West attended. Davidson even called Kim and Kanye as “the cutest couple ever” and expressed that he had a blast knowing the two.
Kim, 41, was married to West for seven years before filing for divorce this February of 2021. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star and entrepreneur has four children with West namely, North (8), Saint (5), Chicago (3), and Psalm (2).
Meanwhile, Davidson was with the English actress and Bridgerton lead Phoebe Dyevnor earlier this 2021. The two declared the relationship to be over August this year, after a brief romantic time together. Davidson also went out with model Kaia Gerber and got briefly engaged to singer Ariana Grande last 2018.
Just after Kim’s SNL debut this October and with that memorable kiss as Aladdin and Princess Jasmine, Kim and Pete were photographed holding hands at Knott’s Scary Farm in California. The two were spotted with Kim’s sister, Kourtney, and her beau Travis Barker leading to some speculating on a possible “double date”.
Sources, however, confirmed that the two were only on friendly terms, while there are others who positively commented on their “chemistry”. After that seemingly romantic Halloween weekend, the two were spotted together again on November 2, where they shared a romantic dinner at an Italian restaurant in Pete’s hometown in the Big Apple- Staten Island. Another dinner date followed the day after that, on November 3, and the two were spotted together once again at Zero Bond, a private social club in NYC.
This November 16, Pete celebrated his 28th birthday and Kim was also there to celebrate with him, including the Kardashian’s matriarch Kris Jenner and rapper Flavor Flav. In a sweet Instagram post shared by Flav, he greets Pete a happy birthday and tags both Kim and Kris, calling them “legendary”. Pete is seen wearing a plaid SKIMS pajama along with Kim and Kris Jenner.
