Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson split after nine months of dating. News Kidda has learned.
The stars, who first linked as a couple in October 2021, parted ways amicably this week, with the split being blamed on distance and schedules, according to an insider with knowledge of the relationship.
Kardashian hosted Saturday Night Live in October, where she and Pete, then a cast member of the long-running NBC comedy series, shared an on-screen kiss. Later that month, media reports of a budding romance circulated after they were photographed holding hands at Knott’s Berry Farm theme park in Buena Park, California.
They made their first red carpet appearance as a couple at the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner in 2022 in late April.
Kardashian, who filed for divorce from Kanye West last year and shares four children with the rapper, discussed her relationship with Davidson during a visit to The Tonight Show in June. At the time, she told host Jimmy Fallon that her then-boyfriend, who opted out of… SNL in May, after eight seasons, had helped her get a better sense of the show’s famous alums.
“I’ve got to be honest, I had no idea you were busy,” she admitted to Fallon at the time. “Even a month later [my SNL hosting gig]I was having dinner and Will Ferrell was sitting right next to me – the show had just aired, when I was playing – and he said he’d seen it. And I literally had to text Pete and say, ‘Wait, was Will Ferrell on? SNL?’ And I was so ashamed.”
Representatives of the two stars did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
