Kim Kardashian and SNL star and comedian Pete Davidson have announced their separation after only nine months of dating. The news comes shortly after reports that they were attempting to make it work. So, what happened when Kardashian and Davidson decided to call it quits?
According to a source close to Kardashian, the lengthy distance between the two while Davidson was working in Australia was part of what resulted in the split.
Kim and Pete have decided to make it simple: friends. They have a lot of respect for each other, but found that traveling distance and their busy schedule made it extremely difficult to maintain a connection.
The love story that began with the pair kissing while dressed as Aladdin and Princess Jasmine during a Saturday Night Live sketch has come to an end, although it isn't because of a major disagreement or falling out, according to a source. The break isn't because of an "event" that caused it, and that it "had nothing to do" with Kanye West, who is now co-parenting.
When Pete Davidson began filming A24's Wizards! in Australia, Kim Kardashian was able to visit him, and she even made a joke about her plans on one of her trips. It wasn't too long ago that rumors of the two discussing starting a family.
A source told reporters just days ago that the couple was "still going strong" and "making it work." Evidently, neither Kardashian nor Davidson has publicly commented on the reports of their separation. More details will undoubtedly be revealed in the coming days, but for now, they're safe to say that their relationship was quite wild.
Kanye West's reactions to their vacations together are a major contributor to their problem. West was irritated with Davidson and his soon-to-be ex-wife's social media posts, which included on one occasion a photoshopped image of West and Davidson in the Captain America: Civil War poster. West started laying low earlier this year after the fight ended, and it's good to know that he didn't break up.
Fans of The Kardashians will still get a peek at the pair during their romance with their Hulu subscription. Although Kim Kardashian reportedly never attempted to persuade Pete Davidson to appear in front of the camera for Season 1 (and may have actually been lurking off-camera), some teaser footage suggests that Season 2 will feature Davidson. See for yourself when The Kardashians returns for its second season on Thursday, September 22 on Hulu in the 2022 TV premiere schedule.
