According to a new report from Page Six, Pete will “barely” appear in the Hulu reality series, despite his horny debut in the second season trailer. “I have a new boyfriend,” Kim says towards the beginning of the video, which dropped on July 11. “I’m just having a really good time.”
Pete finally makes an appearance in footage from the 2022 Met Gala. After returning to their hotel, Kim approaches Pete in the hallway as he’s talking to Khloé Kardashian and asks, “Babe, do you wanna shower with me really quick?” The SNL comedian proceeds to fling everything in his hands across the room, including his phone, and follow his then-girlfriend into the bathroom. A reality star is born…or so we thought.
“He’s in the background, but the reality world is not built for people like Pete,” a source told Page Six, adding that Pete is “a very private person” and Kim “was always super respectful of that.”
Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson dated for nine months following the SKKN founder’s Saturday Night Live hosting debut in October 2021. Their relationship was rife with Instagram posts, Kim-related tattoos, and matching hair looks until the pair split in August 2022.
According to a source who spoke with Entertainment Tonight, Kim felt “the spark between” them had “faded.” The source added that Pete is ”so sweet, but she didn’t feel ready for something serious with him.”
“They had tons of chemistry, and still do, but she kind of wants to be single and date,” the source continued. “Kim still adores Pete and will always be friends with him. She still thinks he’s the nicest and sweetest guy in the world and there’s no drama or anything weird between them now.” Ultimately, the source said that Kim just “wasn’t feeling like she was willing to settle down with him just yet.”
