Are Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson over?
Sources claim the split was more of a formality to remove relationship expectations and that they are still pretty good friends.
While no public statement is expected from either Kardashian or Davidson on the reason behind the breakup, it’s believed scheduling issues in their respective professions made it difficult to foster a strong bond.
The Saturday Night Live alum is in Australia filming a movie, and while he’s said to have been the perfect distant boyfriend, this was not sufficient for Kardashian’s needs.
After all, the 41-year-old does have a full-time job raising four children, North (nine), Psalm (three), Chicago (four) and Saint (six), as a single mom.
This spawned backlash from Ye, who, at the time, was handling damage control from his estranged wife’s past with Ray J. But, by then, the kiss had sparked feelings between the two, and it was Kardashian who pursued the 28-year-old comedian.
Before news of the breakup broke the internet, Davidson was, it seemed, preparing to move from New York to Los Angeles to be closer to his now-ex-girlfriend. In a recent interview with Kevin Hart on his Peacock talk show, Hart to Hart, Davidson hinted at how spending time with Kardashian’s children fostered his dream of having children one day.
“That’s kind of what I’m just preparing for now, is trying to be as good as a dude and develop and get better, so when that happens, it’s just easier,” he said.
Where does this leave Kanye West?
Revelations about Kardashian and her now-ex-boyfriend surfaced a day after she was spotted at her estranged husband’s Yeezy offices, trying on and advertising the YR 2022 YZY Shades with her daughter, North.
While this created buzz that, perhaps, the co-parents are not only on good terms but also spending a lot of quality time together, sources closed to Kardashian claim this is only a sign that relations are healthy between them, and it doesn’t necessarily mean the divorce proceedings have been halted.
“Kim was happy to be asked to be a part of the campaign with the kids and to support Kanye in this way,” the source told E!.
