This week, it was confirmed that Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson had split up after nine months of dating. Davidson is currently in Australia filming a latest comedy with Orlando Bloom. It was rumored that the space between them was an excessive amount of for Kardashian, who’s busy along with her 4 kids and multiple business. But a source chatting with Entertainment Tonight said that the top got here because “the spark between” them “faded.”
Kardashian does think that the previous Saturday Night Live star is “so sweet, but she didn’t feel ready for something serious with him.”
The source added, “That they had tons of chemistry, and still do, but she sort of desires to be single and date. Kim still adores Pete and can at all times be friends with him. She still thinks he’s the nicest and sweetest guy on this planet and there is no drama or anything weird between them now.”
They continued, “She felt like Pete was the intense opposite of Kanye and it was good for her then…She initially thought it might be a fun fling, but then it got more serious once they were spending a lot time together. Kim wasn’t feeling like she was willing to quiet down with him just yet.”
One other source confirmed on Friday confirmed the top of their fling, saying, “Pete and Kim broke up. The gap has been hard and things were beginning to fizzle out… Pete being away for thus long was hard for them. Kim is doing well and he or she knows she has so much occurring. Pete has been super busy as well.”
The previous couple connected on the set of SNL while Kardashian was serving as host, and even shared a kiss in a sketch where they played Disney’s Aladdin and Jasmine. Though it did seem to be an off-the-cuff relationship at first, that they had been making more public appearances recently, even attending the Met Gala together.
