Former “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” reality TV star, Kim Kardashian arrived in New York on Monday, three days after holding hands with Staten Island native Pete Davidson in California, SurgeZirc France has learned.
Kim Kardashian, 41, is said to be in town for the WSJ. Magazine’s 11th annual Innovator Awards on Monday night at the Museum of Modern Art.
She recently appeared on one of the glossy’s Innovators covers, and she’s expected to walk the red carpet alongside the issue’s other featured stars, which include Ryan Reynolds, Lil Nas X, racer Lewis Hamilton, designer Kim Jones, and author Colson Whitehead.
Davidson, 27, has also presumably returned to New York City, as his show, “Saturday Night Live,” begins production on Mondays, with a reported weekly pitch meeting for the writers and cast in creator Lorne Michaels’ office.
The Innovator Awards presenters are still being kept under wraps. According to reports, Kardashian will be attending other events in the city later this week.
On Friday, the reality star and the comedian were spotted intertwining their fingers on a roller coaster at Knott’s Scary Farm in Buena Park, Calif. Kardashian’s sister Kourtney Kardashian and her fiancé, Travis Barker, were also seen screaming on the thrill ride.
A source told People of Kim Kardashian and Davidson, “They hang in the same circles so they will be together from time to time. It’s just friends hanging out.”
The “King of Staten Island” star is reportedly acquainted with the famous family through his best friend Machine Gun Kelly, who is friends with Blink-182 drummer Barker, 45. Davidson also recently held hands and kissed Kim in an “SNL” skit while hosting the show.
The comedian is known as one of Hollywood’s most unlikely ladies’ men, having dated Ariana Grande, Kate Beckinsale, Margaret Qualley, Kaia Gerber, and “Bridgerton” star Phoebe Dynevor.
Kim, for her part, is divorcing the artist formerly known as Kanye West, who has legally changed his name to Ye. Despite their breakup, she has continued to use West’s surname.
The WSJ. Magazine Innovator Awards are returning this year as a VIP in-person event, but fans can still log in to watch a virtual version of the show, which debuted in 2020.
Jennifer Lopez, BTS, Tyler Perry, Taraji P. Henson, Maluma, Michaela Coel, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, and Ava Duvernay were among those who took part in the show last year.
For her latest line of Skims, Kim collaborated with fellow Innovator honoree Jones, the Fendi womenswear artistic director.
Kim Kardashian skipped the red carpet and instead huddled with pal Jonathan Cheban at the awards dinner, where she sat with Lil Nas X, Demi Moore, Dasha Zhukova, Alexandre Arnault, Karlie Kloss, and other VIPs.
