~ August 2022 ~
Call it an end of an era. Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson have reportedly parted ways after nine months of dating. E! News was the first to report on the split.
According to the outlet, the couple amicably broke up this week due to their hectic schedules and long distance. Kardashian is based in Los Angeles, while Davidson is based in New York City. The news puts an end to their high-profile relationship, which saw them make public appearances together including the White House Correspondents’ Dinner and the 2022 Met Gala.
Kardashian’s rep had no comment when contacted by TODAY, and we have to yet hear back from Davidson’s team.
During an appearance on TODAY in June, the reality star and businesswoman explained that she had been careful in her approach to introducing Davidson to her children.
“I definitely wanted to wait six months, and that was the marker. It’s different for everyone, and different things work for different people,” Kardashian told Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie at the time. “But you just have to do what feels right and try to just be as respectful and cautious as possible.”
According to the couple, the two met last fall during Kardashian’s appearance on Saturday Night Live, where Davison featured as a cast member.
The two became Instagram official back in March of this year.
In the months following the start of their relationship, the couple often gave fans insight into their relationship with posts on social media. During an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” Kardashian revealed that the comedian had paid tribute to her in the permanent form of body tattoos, hinting that there were more than one.
“I think my favorite one … it says here, it says, ‘My girl is a lawyer.’ And that one’s really cute,” Kardashian explained.
In a post shared on her Instagram in March, Kardashian appeared to confirm the body ink which seemed to be on Davidson’s collar bone.
For her own physical tributes, Kardashian shared a photo of a hot pink manicure with the letter P bedazzled to her ring finger.
The post coincided with her tribute to mark Davidson’s final appearance on “Saturday Night Live” on her Instagram story. In it, the reality television star and the business owner shared a collage of photos featuring Davidson throughout his eight-season run on the live sketch series.
