Kim Kardashian and her comedian bae, Pete Davidson have broken up after nine months of dating… Kanye West must be smiling wherever he is right now.
A source close to the reality show star says, “Kim and Pete have decided to just be friends. They have a lot of love and respect for each other, but found that the long distance and their demanding schedules made it really difficult to maintain a relationship.”
Another source claims that Kim and Pete’s age disparity influenced their decision to go separate ways.

The 28-year-old “Saturday Night Live” alum has been working on a film in Australia, while the 41-year-old mom of four has been juggling her businesses and co-parenting with ex-husband Kanye West in Los Angeles.
While Kim and Kanye, 45, have had public squabbles in recent months, sources say he had nothing to do with the breakup.
“The divorce is moving forward, and they are focusing on co-parenting,” one of our sources adds.
Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson’s unexpected romance began in early October 2021, following her debut hosting gig on “SNL.” Not too long after the show, the duo were seen holding hands on a roller coaster before heading out on dates in NYC.
The reality star was “intrigued” by the comedian, according to a source at the time, but no labels were immediately attached to their apparent tryst.
Pete Davidson later went to Los Angeles to celebrate his 28th birthday with the SKIMS founder and her mother, Kris Jenner. The trio even wore matching SKIMS pyjamas, raising further questions about their relationship status.

However, Kim Kardashian did not post Pete Davidson on her Instagram page until March. They made their first public appearance in April, at the premiere of “The Kardashians” on Hulu.
Throughout their relationship lasted, Kim and Pete took numerous vacations together, the majority of which were tropical. The comedian also had good times with her and Kanye’s children, North West, Saint West, Chicago West, and Psalm West, to the point where he got their initials tattooed on his neck.
The actor was even mentioned in Season 1 of “The Kardashians,” where Kim detailed their skincare bond and joked about their sex life. It was expected that he will make an appearance during Season 2. However, it’s unclear whether the couple’s split will be featured in the show.
