Kim Kardashian & Pete Davidson ‘are getting very serious, she’s smitten’

kim pete davidson

Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson arrived in the Bahamas this week, and they were photographed yesterday. This is their first international trip as a couple, and Kim dressed up in a cleavage-y ensemble while Pete just looked like a Long Islander on a beach vacay, complete with Beavis & Butthead socks?? Apparently, they rented out a private home on the water, and they’ve got some friends with them, it’s not just Kim & Pete vacationing alone. This first “couple trip” is a big deal though. According to E!’s sources, Kim and Pete are getting quite serious:

Since going public with their relationship in November, the KKW Beauty mogul and the Saturday Night Live star have been spotted spending time together in California, New York and, most recently, the Caribbean. E! News can confirm the couple kicked of 2022 with a trip to the Bahamas islands.

“Kim and Pete are getting very serious,” a source tells E! News. “He has been hanging out at her house more. She’s smitten and the relationship is very exciting to her.”

Though Pete lives in Staten Island and Kim, who shares four kids with ex Kanye “Ye” West, resides in Southern California, “They are making the distance work,” according to the source, “and he’s planning to be in L.A. more often now.”

[From E! News]

I think it’s a mess, but whatever! I’ve sort of come around to why women like Pete – it does seem like he’s genuinely nice to them and he treats his girlfriends like princesses. But I also think he’s probably a moody guy and he’s not always going to treat his girlfriends like royalty.

Meanwhile, even though Kim is serious about Pete, Kanye West wants people to know that he thinks he and Kim will end up together. A source told E! News: “Kanye has not given up on Kim. She’s the only one in his heart and he believes they are soulmates and will end up back together. The other women that he is spending time with are a distraction. He likes the attention that he’s getting from them, but that’s all it is. Kim is still the only one he truly wants to be with.” I believe that. But I also believe Kim is done with him romantically.

    For Kim it must be nice to be around someone who doesn’t take themselves so seriously. Can you imagine being around Kanye for more than 5 minutes? Exhausting.

    • ME says:

      Yeah but isn’t Kim also exhausting? The constant attention. I mean I’m sure she’s the one who tipped off the paps that they would be in the Bahamas this week. They could have easily went without anyone knowing (like so many celebs do).

      • STRIPE says:

        To me they are a different kind of exhausting. Kim is like over publicized (is that the right word? Like, we hear too much about her in the press) but there is no doubt in my mind that being around Kanye personally is an exercise in not rolling your eyes as he rants about this and that and calls himself a god.

    • L says:

      I don’t get the infatuation w/ this dude. But Kim has quite literally let her hair down after being in what was probably a very controlling relationship.

    • Barrett says:

      Both men have mental health issues and bi-polar ? My only concern is if she has a pattern and this hurts her in long run. Red flag. and her kids. hope its fun then fizzles….

      • STRIPE says:

        Right, but Kanye’s bipolar disorder isn’t what makes him a jerk, so they’re not the same even tough they both have mental health issues.

      • Pilar says:

        Both men have mental health issues but not the same issues. And to Pete’s credit he’s honest and open about his issues and in treatment unlike Kanye. He’s also not a narcissist in fact his trademark is self deprecation. So please stop acting like all people with mental health issues are the same. These two men have very different personalities.

      • Sparky says:

        @Stripe YES!!!!! Kanye is increasing the stigma of having bipolar disorder. He’s an asshat who happens to have bipolar!!!!!!

    • Kaykay says:

      I heard him (Kanye) on the Joe Rogan podcast and he actually made fun of himself and his rants multiple times. He seemed to be well aware of his manic manners. It was quite unexpected.

    • Heat says:

      I absolutely agree. Any woman coming out of a relationship with someone like Kanye NEEDS someone like Pete.

    • Lo says:

      Kim saw the attention Megan and Kourtney were getting with their tattooed bfs and couldn’t just sit on the sidelines! Never! Also, nothing will convince me this relationship is real. Kim is so boring, exhausting, predictable. Enough.

  2. atorontogal says:

    Colour me old but are people actually falling for this? And isn’t everyone over the K clan at this point? She is 40 something, the mother of 4. We’ve seen all she has to offer there’s nothing new to see here. Except maybe those pants, man alive they’re hideous! Is she copying Kourtney?

    • MelOn says:

      Her age and children have nothing to do with her level of exhausting. She would be exhausting at 25 and childless because she has no discernible talent, doesn’t run a well known successful business, adds nothing to the world, yet here she is, ALL the time.

    • Chic says:

      This seems like Larsa’s playbook. There’s a reason why they were friends.

    • Ponchorella says:

      Those pants. I was like “When is someone going to mention THE PANTS???”

    • Piratewench says:

      The pants are truly atrocious and also look horribly uncomfortable!

      However she isn’t ruled out from having “more to offer” just because she’s a mother and is now over 40. She has repeatedly participated in getting people’s unjust prison sentences reduced and that’s an amazing thing to do, no matter how you feel about her as a person. She’s also big on gun control. I hope we see these parts of her life continue to grow. She has a huge platform to use, for better or for worse.
      Her nonsense with Pete and promoting overconsumption is “for worse”, but her social justice work is definitely “for better”.

    • Kate says:

      I for one love the pants and love them together. Kim I was totally over a few years ago, but I have grown more respect for her and am really looking forward to their Hulu show and where she’ll be taking her legal career. I think he makes her laugh and feel young – her brain is probably desperately soaking up all those happy hormones after years of rigid perfectionism and the stress of Kanye. Still not all about kourtney. Love Khloe and wish her the best.

    • Sherry says:

      And it makes a good storyline for the Kardashians’ boring reality show!

  3. lunchcoma says:

    :eyeroll emoji:

  4. Soni says:

    Vomit. We’ll never be rid of this cancerous klan.

  5. superashes says:

    I think she is in it for the D, that and opposites attract. I ain’t mad at her, lol. Pete must seem like the perfect man after being with Kanye for sooooo long and dealing with allllll that mess.

  6. Swack says:

    How old is she? Sorry but to me she’s acting like a teenager.

    • Bettyrose says:

      I got no love for Kim but your early 40s are a great time time to let your freak flag fly. You’re confident, still got some of that youthful energy … and the clock is ticking on your BS meter. This fling totally makes sense to me. The only thing I’m bothered by is she’s clearly wearing 4 inch heels under that getup. Trying to look all casual but doesn’t want her head up in Pete’s armpit. They’re what 5’2” and 6’3”?

      • pamspam says:

        I agree Bettyrose! Know what else is a great time to let your freak flag fly? Whenever you want! 🙂

    • huckle says:

      So what? Is she supposed to sit home and knit?

  7. ItReallyIsYouNotMe says:

    Ugh – I don’t mind Pete Davidson in general, but putting your middle finger up for a picture is such a 15-year-old-trying-to-be-bad thing to do. You would think that a famous comedian could Find a more unique gimmick.

  8. girl_ninja says:

    “According to E!’s sources, Kim and Pete are getting quite serious.”

    Of course they are…right on schedule. I hope that Pete is taking care of himself and comes out of this okay.

    • Bettyrose says:

      Countdown to “they live on different coasts and both have hectic work schedules. Kim
      just wants to focus on being with her kids right now. They remain good friends.”

    • lucy2 says:

      “Coincidentally” this came out right after a negative story about Khloe’s dude yesterday.
      Pay no attention to Tristan! Or Travis! Look over here at other daughter’s fabulous life!

      Also, isn’t Pete under contract to SNL? I don’t think he’s moving to LA anytime soon.

  9. Noa says:

    Real Question: who falls for this sh!t???

    It’s so disheartening how many stupid people there are out there who believe all of this crap orchestrated by the PR machine that is the Kardashians.

    • canichangemyname says:

      IKR? I mean … it just all feels so obvious to me. It must be exhausting living your entire life as fan-fiction, but they make that money. “Getting very serious” LOLOLOLZ Kim is ALWAYS serious about getting attention

  10. jferber says:

    Yeah, I just don’t get the “smitten.” I’m sure he’s a nice dude, but Kim’s “feelings,” such as they are, must be very small and constricted now, after such a long time of corseting them for money, fame and the perfectly constructed face and body. But sure, use that word, Kris.

  11. Sarah says:

    I’d like to think that there are still some aspects of her that are a regular human being, hopefully with her kids at least, but I’ve seen the word asexual used to describe her a number of times and it seems to fit. She is a persona and everything we see is planned and managed. It’s such forced sexuality that is shown to us it doesn’t feel like there’s anything behind it.

    I’m absolutely not buying that there is any ‘relationship’ here.

  12. Onomo says:

    So when Pete broke up with Ariana Grande he made fun of her in his comedy special. KK does realize she may get the same treatment right? Also it’s funny how she is trying to match his skater boi aesthetic.

    • Pilar says:

      He made fun of himself as much as her and she wrote songs about him that could be considered dismissive before he even spoke about her. They basically both used the relationship as inspiration for their work. Considering he’s friends with his exes and they speak well of him the idea of him as a callous ex is a hard sell.

  13. AmelieOriginal says:

    I give this another 2 months, tops. Pete will never move to CA full time, his people and family are in NYC/on Staten Island. I also can’t imagine him being a step dad to four small kids, as nice as he is. Kim will never move to NYC as the entire Kardashian clan are in CA and her business is based there. Reality will set in soon enough and the distance will get in the way. But they can have fun until that happens. I’m more worried for Pete than I am for Kim. Kim will be just fine but I hope Pete doesn’t have a mental health crisis like he did while he was with Cindy Crawford’s daughter. And I really hope he isn’t being used as a storyline for the Hulu reality show.

    • Jennifer says:

      I agree, 4 months at the most. Pete is way too young/immature to be a stepdad to 4 kids, especially with Kanye glaring at him from across the street. This is the very definition of “fun fling,” right here.

  14. why? says:

    Translation: Kim and Kris are still exploiting Pete’s mental illness because Kris is having a hard time finding someone to date Kim after what they did to Kris Humphries(used him for a storyline and then when they didn’t need him anymore, they tarnished his reputation by leaking very negative stories about him while depicting Kim as the victim).

    What stands out about the couples vacation photo-op that Kris arranged for Pete and Kim is:
    a) Aren’t we in the middle of raging pandemic that is getting worse because the CDC is not listening to teachers and taking guidance from airline companies(Delta sent the CDC a letter requesting that Covid isolation be shortened to 5 days and they complied) b) Where are their masks since Khloe is always whining about how she keeps getting re-infected with Covid? c)Why isn’t Kim taking this pandemic more seriously since she was whining that Covid and a high fever made her fail her third attempt at the baby bar?

    Of course Kim and Pete are on are not alone while vacationing, their entire relationship is nothing more than a publicity stunt to distract from whatever is plaguing the brands that Kris has in her daughters names. So what is Kris trying to distract from today? Astroworld lawsuits? The fallout from Tristan’s paternity case? Kim’s interviews with conservative journalists? Election interference surrounding Kayne’s publicist?

    “A source told E news”=Kris

    Of course Kris is spinning the “Kayne wants Kim back” narrative to E News, she and Kim are trying to sabotage his new relationships. It would be nice if the press stopped repeating Kris’ cons as fact and ask what is Kim saying to Kayne behind closed doors or after she learns that he has a new muse because it’s clear that she isn’t romantically done with Kayne.

    Is the press going to address how Kim keeps saying that any man who rejects her or isn’t attracted to her is gay? She did this to Tyson and Kris Humphries. Why is this acceptable? Or how she and her mother leak negatives stories about any woman who they perceive as threats, like yesterday when Kim and Kris leaked that Miley was trying to steal her PR boyfriend.

    • canichangemyname says:

      Why? – I agree with a lot of this here, but I’d like to see the “exploiting his mental illness” narrative die. He’s an adult, he’s been open about his issues (which those of us who’d like to get rid of the stigma appreciate), he’s wealthy, he’s not unintelligent.
      I think this relationship is fake af, but let’s not infantilize people who are open about mental illness diagnoses.

    • Krystina says:

      You seriously need to STFU about mental illness. Yes, the Kardashians are extremely problematic. But even they are not responsible for someone else’s mental health. That’s on the individual.
      Your comments keep getting worse.

    • why? says:

      Like I told you before when you wrote the very same STFU comment using a different name in another thread, if you don’t like the fact that I point out how the Kardashians exploit men with mental illness, then stop reading my comments. As long as Kim and Kris continue to leak these staged photo-ops with Pete and stories about how Kayne just can’t get over Kim, I will continue to comment about how they exploit men with mental illnesses. The stigma is looking the other way while the Kardashians exploit men with mental illness and then arguing that anyone who comments about Pete and Kayne’s mental illness are “mental illness” shaming.

      No one is infantilizing anyone. It doesn’t matter if they are adults or have been open about their mental illness, the Kardashians use Pete and Kayne’s mental illness to their advantage, manipulating them into these ridiculous staged photo-ops and storylines and “Kayne want Kim back” narratives when they are at their weakest moment. That’s not right. The press shouldn’t be celebrating Pete and Kim, they should be very concerned that he is having a manic episode and how Kim and Kris are all too welling to exploit him at a time when he is struggling.

      • Krystina says:

        @Why that wasn’t me who told you to STFU, but you really SHOULD.
        No one’s saying you have to like the Kardashians, but you’re literally going out of your way to blame someone else’s mental illness on them, which is GROSS.
        Literally EVERY Kardashian post, there you are, spouting the same BS. Repetitively.
        Grow TF up.

      • Krystina says:

        Also, You are NOT QUALIFIED to be diagnosing ANYONE with any sort of mental health stuff. STOP THAT TOXIC GARBAGE.

  15. Giddy says:

    Two things I’m afraid we’ll never be rid of: Covid and the Kardashians

  16. Mimi says:

    They’re having fun , after Kanye I see why Kim’s doing it YOLO. if I could with Pete I would LOL

  17. Donna says:

    I just saw pictures of them in the Bahamas and Kim is actually smiling and looks happy and relaxed. It’s the first time I’ve seen that with her. Hope they both enjoy it while they can.

  18. 2lazy4username says:

    I wish them all the fun in the world, but “getting serious” when there are four young kids involved is not something to take lightly. Let’s see how “serious” Pete wants to be once they come into the picture.

  19. Birdmad Girl says:

    It’s that Big D energy, LOL. This seems so transparently fake that I have a hard time taking any of it seriously. That photo of them on the dock–I mean, really? Really really?

    Also, this, in particular the 3rd pic down (that butt looks familiar LOL):

    Did Julia Fox wear the fake butt on her dates with Kanye?

  20. Jillyybean says:

    I do love the fact that Kim is making ill fitting unflattering ugly jogging but so comfortable pants mainstream….. my husband hates the look ……. I am so here for it

  21. washappy21 says:

    What the eff is she wearing? Those pants are tragic. And why can’t she just wear clothes that suit what she is doing at that moment? Pete looks comfy and ready for a vacay and she looks uptight, planned and staged.
    And who are these “friends”. I can’t believe KK has any legit “friends”.
    I truly believe she is copying Courtney and trying to find an alternative dude to hook up with. Yeah I’m sure he’s a hell of a lot of fun and a decent roll in the hay but serious WTF is this!?! It’s absolutely laughable. Courtney and Travis actually make sense when I see these two misfits.

  22. Brittney L B says:

    I’m sorry to be so crude, but I don’t think BDE is the explanation for his appeal. I know Ariana confirmed it — I’m not disputing that he has it — but *of course* men would assume that’s the reason.

    *Of course* it doesn’t occur to most men that his empathy/intuitiveness + big lips & mouth = skills that have nothing to do with his D or how B it is.

    Just sayin.

  23. ssb says:

    This ship of fools is going down in flames. It may take a while, but it’s gonna get ugly.

  24. k.tate says:

    Love her. Especially now that she is done with her ex husband! Those pants are awful but she can wear anything and the kids rush to copy her. I wonder what she ( and others) are doing with their top lips? Making them look like one lip all the way across?

  25. Greenfingers says:

    Kim is just an obsession for Ye, nothing more. I don’t see nore feel the love between them. They didn’t even live in one house, for years. It looked like K was just a hook up, to make kids.

    She’s finally getting the attention and D she craved from a boyman, ofcourse she’s happy.
    The end will be like the last day of Pompeï
