Reality TV star Kim Kardashian and Saturday Night Live comedian Pete Davidson have split after nine months of dating, media outlets reported on Friday. The duo, who were first romantically linked in October 2021, ended their relationship this week.
Kardashian is also in the midst of legal proceedings to finalise her divorce from rapper Kanye West.

Sources told E!online that while the pair has “a lot of love and respect for each other,” they found that the long-distance dynamic and their demanding schedules “made it really difficult to maintain a relationship.”
Kardashian and Davidson’s unexpected romance began after her inaugural hosting gig on SNL in early October 2021. In April, they made their first public appearance at Hulu’s premiere of The Kardashians.
From tattoo tributes to a joint appearance at the Met Gala, the couple didn’t hold back on showing some their affection over the past nine months. Kim’s sister Khloe Kardashian went so far as to say that Kim was in love with the comedian back in June.
Davidson made it clear last month that he wants to settle down one day, saying on Hart to Hart that having kids is “my dream.” He shared, “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.”
Meanwhile, Kardashian filed for divorce from rapper husband Kanye West after six years of marriage. They have four children—two daughters and two sons in 2021.
The comedian was previously in relationships with singer Ariana Grande, and actors Kate Beckinsale, Kaia Gerber, Margeret Qualley and Phoebe Dynevor. He was one of the youngest-ever cast members on SNL, while Kardashian’s net worth shot up to over $1 billion last year after she sold a stake in her cosmetics brand to Coty.
