It’s Official: Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson are Dating
Pete Davidson and Kim Kardashian are pushing their friendship to new heights. According to a source close to Kim, the 41-year-old reality star and the 28-year-old Saturday Night Live comic are dating: “They’re ecstatic and excited to see where it goes.” “Pete has informed her he doesn’t want to see anybody else,” the insider adds, adding that Kim has expressed similar sentiments.
“Kim is captivated over him and it’s really exciting to her,” a source adds, although the mother-of-four is attempting to keep it low-key. “He makes her laugh the entire time they are together and she is utterly charmed by him,” a source said of the beauty mogul’s reaction to the King of Staten Island actor. Kim’s affections for Pete were clear when she took him to Kris Jenner’s Palm Springs house for a “big transaction,” according to the insider. “Everyone is pleased for her,” the insider said.
“They’re making it work from a distance and plan to keep seeing each other,” the insider claims, even though they are now living on separate coasts. It’s unknown when the two decided to go from friends to more, but fans eagerly await news. As one Twitter user put it, “Pete Davidson and Kim Kardashian are dating?!?! There’s something in the air.”
Other social media users agreed that the indications were there, with many pointing out that in a photo from Pete’s recent birthday celebration, Kim and Pete were dressed similarly. Another Twitter user joked, “Pete Davidson and Kim Kardashian wearing the same outfit?!?” “This one ain’t ready for the world.” Kim met Pete in NYC before their meeting in the California desert, where they spent not one but two nights out together.
Their hangouts were purely “casual” at the time, according to a source who told E! News that Kim wasn’t ready to jump into a relationship due to her protracted divorce from Ye, now known as Kanye West. According to the insider, “Kim isn’t seeking to date anyone right now.” “She is enthralled by this period of her life and is having a great time. They are not under any duress.”
Kim met Pete during her marriage to Ye, but the two reconnected in early October when she hosted Saturday Night Live. She and Pete played Princess Jasmine and Aladdin in a sketch where they enjoyed a kiss on a magic carpet journey, her debut appearance on the comedy series. Kim and Pete were caught holding hands on a rollercoaster at Knott’s Berry Farm in Yorba Linda, California, just a few weeks later, thrilling fans with the unexpected outing.
