Kim Kardashian & Pete Davidson are ‘officially dating’ & exclusive now

kim pete davidson

I thought it was pretty much established by now that Pete Davidson and Kim Kardashian are dating, considering we’ve been hearing about their LA, Palm Springs and Staten Island dates for weeks now. Still, we have some kind of confirmation now: Pete and Kim are dating. They are Pim, or Kete, or Davidashian. Page Six didn’t have much more than “they’re officially dating,” but E! News’ sources were chatty:

Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson are taking their friendship to the next level. A source close to Kim tells E! News the 41-year-old reality star and 28-year-old Saturday Night Live comedian are officially dating: “They are really happy and seeing where it goes.”

“Pete has told her he doesn’t want to see anyone else,” the source says, noting Kim apparently feels the same. “She is telling some people they aren’t super serious but she isn’t seeing anyone else… She’s trying to not make a big deal about it but is super into him.”

Though the mother-of-four is trying to keep it low-key, the insider says, “Kim is smitten over him and it’s very exciting to her.”

Apparently, the beauty mogul feels “giddy” around the King of Staten Island star, with the source sharing, “He makes her laugh the entire time they are together and she is completely enthralled by him.”

Kim’s feelings for Pete were made evident when she brought him to Kris Jenner’s Palm Springs home, an event that the source describes as a “huge deal.” The insider notes, “Everyone is happy for her.”

Though they are currently living on opposite coasts, the source says, “They are making the distance work and have plans to continue seeing each other.”

I still wonder how much of this is about Kourtney being so loved-up with Travis Barker and Kim’s jealousy of their relationship. I think that’s part of it, but I also think Kim was looking to draw a line under the marriage to Kanye in some way. This thing with Pete is really pissing off Kanye too.

Meanwhile, did y’all know that Kim was part of a successful effort to rescue Afghanistan’s women’s youth development soccer team? She financed and chartered the plane taking 130 people (including 30 teenagers) from Pakistan to the UK. Kim did a very good thing. The refugees are now in quarantine in the UK, and a football club has pledged to help care for them and support them.

    Wow, go Kim – that is a very good thing.

  2. molly says:

    Never forget: The devil works hard, but Kris Jenner works harder.
    At least Kim gets to wear more comfy clothes in this relationship.


      Hahaha excellent point! Something tells me Pete won’t be pressuring her into wearing beige latex. Meanwhile I hope she has some kind of positive influence in his hair.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      I’m hoping that she’ll rock a more natural (outside of the plastic surgery) look with him, like she has in that white tank top pic. less make up, etc.

      I know people think he looks skeevy, but NEVER UNDERESTIMATE the power/sexiness of a guy who makes you laugh. seriously, it’s such an attractive trait.

      and honestly, I’m not much of a fan of the K-Klan but good for her for doing such a good thing.

    • Huh says:

      I’m also betting Kris has been desperately casting around for a “storyline” to deflect attention from the Astroworld tragedy and the fact that Kylie’s boyfriend is being sued out the wazoo for his part in it.

  3. Barbie1 says:

    Kim needs to aim higher. His other girlfriends didn’t last long. It will be humiliating for her when her time is up.

    • huckle says:

      How will it be humiliating?

      • Chaine says:

        Because she goes from being married to one of the world’s biggest movie stars and attending the Met Gala and being peripherally associated with Beyonce —- to being dumped by a two-bit comic who looks and acts like he literally just crawled out of the back of a garbage truck at the county landfill.

      • Barbie1 says:

        @ CHAINE perfect and hilarious comment

      • ElleV says:

        Again, why are we assuming he will dump her? Seems like Pete is more often the dumpee than the dumper and why does the end of a mutual, fun fling need to be framed as a “dumping” anyway?

        Comes across as a really sexist and dated view of dating

        Also- Kanye isn’t a movie star, and he’s been on the outs with Jay and B for a while, and they held Kim at a distance from the word go – if I were in Kim’s shoes, I’d be pretty relieved to trade in my status marriage to an egomaniac for some BDE any day

      • Kate says:

        @ Elle 💯💯💯😂

      • Chaine says:

        @Elle I swear I meant to say “music star,” IDK how it came out saying movie star 🙂

        and yes, i was making fun of her for probably clinging to the fact that she is important enough to be noticed and disdained by Bey

      • Pilar says:

        I don’t think you need to worry about her being humiliated by a partner she has LOTS of experience with that…
        Whatever you imagine she will feel whenever her thing with Pete ends is nothing compared to the humiliation Kanye put her through on the regular..

      • Dutch says:

        Umm Davidson attended this yea’s Met Gala too. Did a whole Weekend Update bit about it.

      • Barbie1 says:

        @ PILAR so true

    • ElleV says:

      Why would it be humiliating to have a brief, fun fling? Not everyone dates for keeps

    • stagaroni says:

      I wasn’t aware she was married to “one of the world’s biggest movie stars.” Did I miss a husband?

      Pete attended the Met Gala and has friends who dropped everything when he was suicidal. That says a great deal about how much they love him. Perhaps Kim shouldn’t be toying with his emotions just to get publicity.

  4. Ravensdaughter says:

    I don’t get it–why are women attracted to Pete Davidson? Please explain!

    • Kitten says:

      Humor and a big d*ck go a long way.

    • Justjj says:

      I think he must be extremely charming and funny, have some great weed, and have that BDE. He seems like he knows how to make women feel truly special and appreciated for their unique beauty, and he must dote on them. If you’re a woman who has been starved for that in past relationships, and your love language is words of affirmation-a man who says the right things and seems emotionally attuned to your needs can be very attractive.

    • Sakura says:

      In words of the amazing Marilyn Monroe, “If you can make a woman laugh, you can make her do anything.” This seems to be the case with Pete. He’s hilarious and women love that. He’s one of those “aww, shucks” kinda guys that some women find charming. Either that, or the anaconda he is apparently packing in his pants!

    • Super Fan says:

      Well, for one thing, he clearly makes the ladies laugh. And also, a common trait of people with borderline personality disorder is that they can tend to “idealize” (& “devalue”) others. If you’re on the receiving end of the idealizing, you get showered with a lot of positive attention/ praise. That can be quite intoxicating for some people.

      Good for Kim that she’s using her wealth & connections for good, but whew, she likes those crazy boys!

    • Dierski says:

      My take on why Pete is attractive to women besides his charm/humor/BDE is that he has a much smaller ego than a lot of famous men do. Likely since his mental health struggles have been so public and he’s had many public missteps and messy moments, he has (to a degree) given up on worrying what what people think of him, and as a result he is more mellow and fun to just be around because for him it isn’t always about him and feeding his ego (ahem…Kanye). Pete seems like he’d rather just do fun things and truly enjoy the people in his company, rather than try and present a polished persona all the time.

      My guess is also that Pete worships Kim since he can’t believe his luck in dating her, and genuinely enjoys being around her, which she can then feed off of in a positive way. He’s a person with many red flags (so is she), but I do think that he is kind and loving to his close friends… and genuine kindness at that Kardashian-level of fame must be hard to come by in their friendships/romances, especially since *so* many people are vying to be in their circle and will be less-than-genuine to get an in.

      By no means will their relationship last, but I am loving this moment for both of them. She can actually relax around a boyfriend, instead of walking on eggshells, and he can enjoy her and make her laugh, and feel good about himself in the process. They both benefit and I think in a way they both need just a fun and light relationship at this time in their lives.

    • molly says:

      A.) He’s very available.
      B.) His relationships are instant headlines. And for that, Kim needs Pete more than Pete needs Kim.

    • Detnow359 says:

      Allegedly good drugs.

    • OliviaJoy says:

      He is funny and has BDE. My friends and I always talk about how funny gets you a very long way with women sometimes. Especially when coming off a bad breakup or coming out of a dark period in your life.

  5. Normades says:

    Urgh, make it stop.

    At least she’s wearing less makeup when she’s with him.

  6. Delphine says:

    They really do look super happy and blissed out. Good on her for rescuing an entire plane full of people from Afghanistan. She may well have helped to save their lives.

  7. Mandy Purr says:

    Not a fan of Kim K but I wish the media was bringing more attention to her helping charter that plane for the Afghan women’s soccer team. That’s truly awesome! Kudos Kim!

    As for her and Pete, I’m fine with it. We all know how it will end but it’s still fun gossip for the holiday season. Although, I do find it interesting that Kourtney is getting attention for her relationship with an edgy, tall white dude and now Kim’s into that type of guy too. Eye roll. Kim must always be the center of attention. I adore Pete and I hope he’s having fun and he doesn’t get his heart broken.

  8. L4frimaire says:

    Pete definitely seems like that transitional boyfriend. Not meant to last but to get you over the blues to the next stage in life. He’s cute and goofy, and must be doing something right to keep snagging all these babes.

  9. Sakura says:

    Kate Beckinsale liked that one post where someone said Pete must have a nice personality to keep getting all these beautiful women, so maybe it really is true.

  10. atorontogal says:

    I call BS – this is purely PR….next!

  11. Rice says:

    Kim did a really excellent thing with the Afghan women’s football team, so kudos to her for helping.

    Pete has large hands.

    That’s all I’ve got.

  12. Wendy says:

    I saw a TikTok explaining why women like Pete Davidson and it rang true, ESPECIALLY for Kim… he’s appealing because he doesn’t know shit, and he KNOWS he doesn’t know shit. She just got out of a marriage with an extremely controlling man who threw out most of her wardrobe when they started dating and absolutely controlled her look for the years they were together, and god knows what other aspects of life he controlled for her. I cannot see Pete trying to tell her what to do in any way, and I can see how that kind of vibe would be very, very appealing after Kanye.

    • ME says:

      Kim did the same thing to Khloe. She went through her closet and tried to throw away all her clothes because only Kim knows fashion. Kim and Kanye are way more a like than you think. The marriage failed because Kanye couldn’t take being hushed by Kris and the Klan all the time. The “brand” was more important than anything. He wasn’t having it.

      • Edwin says:

        Thank you u have summed it up we’ll…Pete looks unkept and washing doesn’t look like a top priority to him..however “too each his own”. The way this family acts I was surprised of the hook up but evidently their maybe ulterior motives behind all of this..

      • Pilar says:

        @ me
        Not a fan of the kklan and but you left out the bit where Kanye humiliated her on the regular. Kanye is abusive and misogynistic to women on top of his control freak issues. His treatment of amber rose shows that his behaviour can’t be excused by whatever the KKs didn’t
        Also I doubt they actually had much of a physical relationship considering he didn’t really live with her let alone in the same state for much of the relationship.

      • ME says:

        @ Pilar

        You think KIm and Kris didn’t leak stories about Kanye to the press to humiliate him too? It went both ways….KIm was just more sly about it. I’m not saying Kanye is a Saint, he’s not. But the Kardashians are no Saints either. Well her new boyfriend also doesn’t live in the same state as her…are you saying they don’t have a physical relationship either? In fact it’s funny, because she said she couldn’t be with Kanye because he moved to another state. Now she’s dating a guy that lives even further away.

  13. sassafras says:

    It’s weird but I understand this relationship more than her relationship with Kanye. I’m not sure what that says about me or my perceptions of any of these people.

    • Calypso says:

      I understood her relationship to Kanye at first, like when it started. Now that Kanye’s mental health is in a very different place, it’s clear it doesn’t work.

      But I’m with you, I *get* this. She’s clearly his type. But honestly he probably makes her laugh, she can probably relax with him in ways she couldn’t around Kanye the past few years, it’s fun and no-pressure and I don’t see it lasting long at all (her work indicates she wants to be Taken Seriously) but it’s probably a nice change of pace for her. Also, she likes to be talked about and in the news and this achieves that for her.

      I think it’s good for her image too, however calculated that is, because he’s so against-type for her and he kind of humanizes her.

  14. why? says:

    Translation: Kris and Kim are still exploiting Pete because Kayne was too busy with his new muse to take their calls.

    Sources=Kris and Kim.

    Pete looks really bad in these staged photos like he is doing a lot of partying, drugging, and drinking since “dating” Kim(he shows up for the staged photo-op and then Kris leaks it the press), so how can the press keep saying that things are going well between him and Kim? He is having a manic episode and Kris and Kim are all too willing to exploit it because Kim doesn’t have anything else going on.

    Why is the press is always falling for Kris cons? Kim wasn’t involved in the rescue of the youth soccer team. Just like with Trump, someone else did all the work(financing and chartering the plane) while Kim and Kris just added Kim’s name to it like they always do. The press needs to stop trying to normalize Kim and give her credit that she didn’t earn or deserve. This is how we ended up with Trump as president and the Kardashians have a lot in common with Trump. Last month the WSJ was helping Trump spread lies about how he won the 2020 election and this month the WSJ magazine named Kim innovator of the year even though she couldn’t answer one question about the business she supposedly owns.

    • PrissaO says:

      Translation: Kris and Kim are still exploiting Pete…

      I totally agree. Enough Said!

    • ME says:

      I agree. KIm always gets credit for things she had almost nothing to do with. She joins in 10 seconds before the finish line, and then gets all the credit (just like with all the justice reform stuff). It’s not fair for the people that really did all the hard work. Kim did not fund this chartered plane all on her own. It was funded by a New York rabbi, Premier League side Leeds United, and Kim (through her Skims company). Almost all the news stories are saying it was Kim who did this great deed all on her own.

      • Bo Peep says:


        Credit where credit is due, Rabbi Moshe Margaretten was the one who reached out to Kim/team funding, as far as we know he did not help with funding. CBS also doesn’t make it clear whether the Premier League side Leeds United helped with funding, they’re the ones responsible for supporting the Afghan youth soccer team after they arrive in the UK.

        Kim offered to fund the entire flight through Skims, and as far as we know, her business is the sole donor. Of course she isn’t the only one who made this operation happen.

        I agree that we have neither enough interest nor reporting on the people doing the actual work for social issues. But if celebrities can bring some public attention to these issues, I’m not mad. That’s what their jobs are as people with an incredible amount of social capital anyways, to bring attention to what people pay them to do (whether those things be in the entertainment industry or not.)

        As for funding, the money has to come from somewhere. And there’s no incentive for any private person or organization to provide funding without receiving something in return. I don’t begrudge the people involved for crediting Kim and giving her positive press if that’s what gets lifesaving operations like this funded. She got the credit because that’s what the people involved are promoting this story to the press as. They’re hoping to use her fame to bring attention to their cause. It might seem unfair, but this is how they were able to get things done.

      • why? says:

        Just like Trump(he called into radio stations using the name John Miller and John Barron and bragged about how rich he was and how women were pursuing him), Kris and her daughters have a history of posing as sources and leaking stories that depict themselves in a positive light. The only reason the press credited Kim with “saving” the soccer team is because it’s the story that Kris paid them to write. I don’t believe for one moment that the Rabbi reached out to Kim, since Kris and Kim also planted stories about how Van Jones, Drake, Maluma, musicians, and athletes were pursing Kim and that Kim is so smart that did extremely well on the exams that her mentors were giving her.

        This funding/rescue story is nothing more than Kris’ attempt to distract from the lawsuits that are being filed against her other daughter’s boyfriend for his reckless behavior at the concert.

        What fame? If Kim had fame, she and her family wouldn’t resort to exploiting people like Kayne and Pete who go along with their ridiculous storylines because they are in a manic episode.

      • ME says:

        @ Bo Peep

        I completely agree we need to give credit where credit is due. Kim donated that money through her business Skims. She is not the only owner of Skims. Skims was co-founded by Emma Grede (a Black woman). Now why wasn’t her name mentioned as well? It’s her company too. Emma is also the co-founder and CEO of Khloe’s Good American Brand…but you’d never know that unless you really did some research.

  15. minx says:

    Pete, you can do better.

    • stagaroni says:

      Amen. The Kardashians exploit every man they are with, and they tend to seek out those with mental health issues. It is grotesque.

      • ME says:

        Is Pete an only child? They also like to date/marry men who have no siblings or very little family.

      • The Recluse says:

        I think he has a sister and until fairly recently he was living in his mother’s basement while the pandemic was raging. He emerged from there looking a bit healthier to be honest.

  16. MangoAngelesque says:

    I mean, if you’re looking for someone to spend cuffing season with, Pete seems like a fun choice. Highly doubtful that either of them are looking at it as something serious, but at least he has a sense of humour and not be obsessed with a photoshopped lifestyle.

    But yeah, this is totally her 1. envying Kourtney&Travis’s PDA/attention, and 2. Wanting to draw a line through all of Kanye’s “nuh-uh, she’s still totally my wife, you guys!” tantrums.

  17. ME says:

    That pic of them holding hands was completely staged. Someone put out video of that exact moment. In the video, Kim walks up to Pete, holds his hand for 3 seconds (just enough time for the pap to take the pic), then she lets go of his hand. So damn staged…they were both laughing too. It’s like they are f*cking with everyone. They both are getting publicity out of it so it works for them…plus now no one is talking about Astroworld and all the victims. They just want their new show to get high ratings, or they won’t get a second season. Without a reality show this family will finally disappear.

    • Pilar says:

      Of course the photos are staged. Wether this is real or prank like you think staging photos to announce your relationship is pretty common and used as a strategy by plenty of celebrity couples.
      This thing won’t last but tbh Kim’s face hasn’t showed this much emotion in years so she must be more comfortable around him.

      • BigLifeSmallCity says:

        This is about deflection from Astroworld. Period. Plain and simple. So no – not all “celebrity” families orchestrate fake “romances” to deflect from the bad press related to their association with a mass-casualty event.

      • ME says:

        She’s using this opportunity to promote her new Skims pajamas. So tacky of her to do. She’s prancing around with Pete wearing Skims Pajamas in public (for consecutive days). This family is beyond fake. They think we’re all so stupid. Though, it appears some people are drinking the Kardashian Kool-Aid.

  18. February-Pisces says:

    I think seeing Kourtney and megan fox get attention with their punk bad boy boyfriends has clear inspired Kim to do the same thing. I guess it makes sense. Who would have thought Kim would photocopy the sister that ‘is the least interesting to look at”.

  19. Redheadwriter says:

    He’s my freebie. I just love his dopey self. Plus BDE.

    Absolutely no fan of KK but hope she’s having fun. If she messes with him (or Kris does), there’s going to be a lot of pissed off folks ready to defend him.

    In the meantime, let them have fun. I know I would!

  20. Pixie says:

    Well it’s got people talking right? Taking all the attention off the atrocity Astroworld. PMK at it again.

  21. BountyHunter says:

    Or maybe he’s just trying to one up MGK.

  22. eliza james says:

    I am loving her natural look.

  23. BigLifeSmallCity says:

    Wait… there are actually people who think this is real? Seriously?

  24. KC says:

    I mean, this isn’t really all that surprising. He’s nice, attentive, charming, edgy unlike her type but similar to Kourt’s new guy, pursues her so he checks all the boxes. Breath of fresh air after Kanye, dotes on her/strokes her ego after the challenge of her previous relationship, takes attention from Kourt, attracts everyone’s interest like a museum exhibit, is available and interested. Seems like a nobrainer to me! To top it off, she has seemed dead set on following her mum’s footsteps…..she already has her mum’s face, 4 kids with one guy. She could cross off both “date someone for fun” and “date a much younger man” all at the same time. Kris must be so proud and excited about how well Kim is poised to become her.

  25. Rea says:

    If weed was a person it would be Pete.

  26. SISYPHUS says:

    She sure does love a good head case

  27. ennie says:

    I hope he doesn’t get chewed and spat like others have.
