Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson Break up After 9 Months of Relationship

Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson They ended their nine-month relationship, ending an unlikely whirlwind romance that captivated and confused fans — and created a seemingly endless supply of tabloid drama.

Rolling Stone It is learned that the reality TV mogul and former Saturday Night Live the comedian split this week, citing the couple’s busy schedules and long-term relationship as the reason for the split. The break comes just weeks after a trailer for Hulu’s upcoming season The Kardashians Skims founder and her beau then showed up hopping into the shower together.

Kardashian, 41, and Davidson, 28, were first linked romantically in October 2021 after the pair were spotted holding hands at the Southern California theme park, Knott’s Berry Farm, following Kardashian’s appearance on SNL, in which they shared an on-screen kiss in a scripted sketch. The two were later spotted together several times after the tour, with Kardashian even throwing a birthday party for the comedian that November. Davidson eventually acknowledged the relationship publicly in a subsequent podcast appearance in February, and Kardashian shared photos of Davidson to Instagram the following month.

The pair made a red carpet appearance at this year’s Met Gala, where Kardashian is sports the iconic form-fitting dress Marilyn Monroe wore it while singing her rendition of “Happy Birthday” to then-President John F. Kennedy in May 1962.

The relationship also drew from (and provided considerable creative fodder for) Kardashian’s ex-husband, Kanye WestWhich Davidson infamously called out in a track on his album Wound 2 and many social media rants were released against the comedian, focusing on his past struggles with addiction and mental health issues.

In February, West posted a series of screenshots of alleged text messages between himself and Kardashian, with the reality star calling her ex-partner’s actions “appalling,” claiming that “someone is going to hurt Pete [Davidson] and it will be your fault.” West replied, “I will do everything to protect you and our family forever. And I listened to you and told everyone to make sure nothing physical happens to Skete,” referring to the offensive nickname West bestowed on the comedian.

On the song “Easy,” released the following month, West boasted that he was saved from a near-death experience simply to “kick Pete Davidson’s ass,” releasing a violent cremation video to accompany the track featuring a cartoon version of the rapper kidnaps and kills a character like the comedian. The video ends with an on-screen message that reads, “Everyone lived happily ever after, except you know who,” with “Skete” conveniently interspersed. Another video for the track featured an animated version of it SNL star being beaten up by a monkey.

That same month, friend Davidson leaked a series of screenshots that have now been deleted which shows a text conversation between Davidson and West. “It doesn’t have to be this way,” Davidson allegedly wrote. “It’s amazing what she does for those kids and you’re so lucky to have her as your kids’ mom… it’s amazing what [rehab centers] do when you go get help. You should try it. I’ll be in La for the day if you want to stop being a little internet nerd and talk.” Days later, West he went on a social media rant, bragging that Davidson “had a mental breakdown after we ran him off the internet” and claiming that the Kardashian actress would “ban drugs” because “he’s in rehab every 2 months.” Those jobs in the end Instagram temporarily banned West’s account.

Davidson addressed the ongoing harassment from the West during a standing ovation in May, saying the ordeal was “a strange thing to go through”.

Although the split between the high-profile couple appears to be amicable, one question remains: What will Pete do with the? numerous tattoos related to Kim he branded himself with earlier this year? Here’s hoping he’s a good cover-up artist on speed dial.
