In a recent interview with Kim Kardashian, she kept calm, cool and collected when her ex-boyfriend was brought up. She confessed, “He’s a cutie. He’s literally such a good person, they don’t really make them like him anymore.” She also added, “I’m excited for what he has coming up.” All of this was brought up to her just one month after they had announced that they had split and decided to remain just friends. It was clear the interview was already decided on with pre-planned questions.
The reality star and the comedian were together for just nine months. A source that was close to them shared, “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.” Kardashian did not do well with long distance and Davidson was filming a movie all the way in Australia. She is based in Calabasas, California where she had four kids with ex-husband Kanye West, and runs her businesses, KKW Beauty, SKKN, SKIMS and filming her Hulu show with her family.
A Whirlwind Romance with No Hard Feelings After
One source stated that the age difference between the two celebrities also played a big role in another reason why they broke up. According to a source from Page Six, they stated, “Pete is 28 and Kim is 41—they are just in very different places at the moment, Pete is totally spontaneous and impulsive and wants her to fly to New York, or wherever he is on a moment’s notice.” The insider added, “But Kim has four kids and it isn’t that easy. She needs to focus on the kids, Kim has four kids with her ex-husband Kanye West: North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm.”
The two stars had met back in the day on Saturday Night Live where Kardashian was the host and Davidson was a cast member during the month of October 2021. Kim had admitted on an episode of The Kardashians that she wanted to be closer to Davidson and she was the one who contacted him after she hosted SNL.
She confessed, “I called the producer at SNL and was like, ‘Hey, do you have Pete’s number? And they were like, ‘Yeah.’ I text him. I wasn’t even thinking like, ‘Oh my God, I’m gonna be in a relationship with him.’ I was just thinking, ‘Heard about this BDE, need to get out there, I need to jumpstart my…’”
Kim told the cameras with a smile, “I was just basically DTF.” They hung out, and then it turned into a nine month long relationship where they turned out to be in love.
Ex Kanye West Made Things Harder for the Couple
But it wasn't all just fun "DTF" moments, there was real love in there. Unfortunately, Kardashian's ex Kanye West did not make things easier on the pair.
Another source confessed to People Magazine that Davidson had gone to seek help because of Kardashians ex-husband, Kanye West. He was said to have been bullying the comedy star all over social media with threats towards him and constant making fun of him.
The source said that he “has been in trauma therapy in large part. The attention and negativity coming from Kanye and his antics is a trigger for [Pete], and he’s had to seek out help.” On behalf of Kim, “she’s been nothing but supportive of [Pete] throughout their relationship.”
Davidson has been laying low and taking it easy ever since their breakup. He was filming movies and still doing what he loves to do. A source told Hollywood Life that “While Pete was torn up when the split first happened, he has had some time now and is in a much better place with it.
He sees that they were clearly not meant to be” The source confirmed, “They are from two different worlds, but more like two completely different universes. Pete does not talk to Kim now, and they pretty much had a clean break.”
The Kardashians new series is available to stream on Hulu services.
