It’s not hard to know what the Kardashians are up to these days. Just turn on your social media feeds and there they are! No holds barred, every little detail they want you to know is already printed by their publicist and ready to be published. That includes Kim Kardashian’s most recent split with SNL alum, Pete Davidson. Fans are interested to know how long the two dated.
Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson had a nine-month relationship, which began in October 2021 when the two got close after Kim hosted Saturday Night Live.
The social media star tried her acting skills in some comedy sketches, one of which was where she played Jasmine, while Pete played Aladdin. The two ended the sketch with a passionate kiss, that marked the couple’s first of many PDA-filled moments.
How did Pete Davidson and Kim Kardashian meet?
Kim admitted to wanting to bump into Davidson at her SNL after-party but to her dismay, he was the only one who didn’t come. So what is a Kardashian to do? Kim found a way to get Davidson’s number through a producer and sent him a message.
The reality star, later on, confessed in one of the episodes of The Kardashians back in April that she was interested to try something new, and by new, we mean Pete’s BDE. Kim didn’t hold back as she said “I was just basically DTF!”
It is safe to say that neither Kim nor Pete expected anything serious out of their relationship. The two were obviously just having so much fun together, and the people around, especially Kim’s close circle couldn’t help but notice the changes in her.
New Life New Man
The SKIMS CEO gushed about her new man being a genuine, humble, and thoughtful human being – like a breath of fresh air for Kim after coming from a relationship with former husband Kanye West (now known as Ye) and all his ostentatious and extravagant gestures.
In the following months, fans were treated to a slew of photos of the lovebirds, from their vacation in the Bahamas to romantic date nights in both LA and Staten Island, Pete’s hometown.
By February, Pete gave an official statement about his current love life to People’s Kay Adams. Then in March, they became Instagram-official when Kim finally posted 2 photos of them with the caption “Whose car are we gonna take?!”
Officially A Couple
April was jam packed for the new couple as they attended several high-profile events together. Early in March 2022, Davidson escorted Kim to the LA premiere of The Kardashians. The two were spotted holding hands throughout the event.
Then by the end of April, they made their red carpet debut at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. The two dressed up well for the event with Kim wearing a sparkly silver beaded Balenciaga Couture number, while Pete donned a black suit with a skinny tie.
The couple would do a back-to-back event for the Met Gala in May. This was a highly anticipated affair since Kim will be wearing Marilyn Monroe’s form-fitting gown, which was worn by the Hollywood star during President Kennedy’s birthday fundraiser in 1962.
Sources say Kim had to wear a sauna suit twice a day and eat clean just to trim down 16 pounds to fit in this controversial crystal-embelisshed dress.
As part of the whole persona, Kim dyed her hair platinum blonde, an ode to Monroe’s hair color, but chose to wear it in a sleek blond contrary to Monroe’s coiffed ‘do.
Why did Pete Davidson and Kim Kardashian break up?
After months of dating, sources close to the reality star confirmed the Kardashian-Davidson split in August of 2022. Reasons for the separation include the difficulty of a long-distance relationship and the very hectic schedules both stars have.
Fans also suspect that the couple’s age difference and their very different life roles have taken a toll on their relationship. Kim Kardashian is a 41-year-old mother of 4, who runs a multi-billion empire, while Pete is a young adventurous guy who naturally seeks fun and excitement.
Though Davidson felt bummed about the split, we see him going around town with a new girl, Emily Ratajkowski. As news of the two was circulating, Kardashian posted a number of her sexy photos modeling lingerie pieces from her SKIMS line. Coincidence? Maybe not.
