It’s the end of an era folks. Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson formerly known as “Kete” have reportedly split.
Sources close to the couple tell E! News that The Kardashian star and Davidson have broken up and decided to just be friends.
The insiders claim that the long distance and their demanding schedules made it really difficult to maintain a relationship. Sources close to the couple told Page Six other factors also played a part.
Besides scheduling, age differences and different personalities were also a reason for their split.
“Kim and Pete have decided to just be friends,” the insider said. “They have a lot of love and respect for each other, but found that the long distance and their demanding schedules made it really difficult to maintain a relationship.”
Pete is currently filming a movie in Australia, while Kim is based in Calabasas, California, where she lives with her four kids: North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm (Kim shares her children with her ex-husband, Kanye West, whom she filed for divorce from in February 2019.)
According to another source, Kim and Pete’s 13-year age difference also was an issue.
“Pete is 28 and Kim is 41 — they are just in very different places at the moment,” the insider said. “Pete is totally spontaneous and impulsive and wants her to fly to New York, or wherever he is on a moment’s notice.”
The source continued, “But Kim has four kids and it isn’t that easy. She needs to focus on the kids.” The insider also revealed that Kim’s businesses, including Skims, KKW Beauty, KKW Fragrance and SKKN, have made keeping a relationship difficult for her.
“[She’s] totally exhausted by this relationship and other things going on in her life.”
A source also told Entertainment Tonight that Kim thought Pete was “so sweet” but at the end of the day, their relationship had run its course.
“They had tons of chemistry, and still do, but she kind of wants to be single and date. 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.”
The drama it seems is coming from Kim’s ex-husband Kanye West. Following the split the rap star posted a fake cover of “The New York Times” declaring “Skete” Davidson, Kanye’s nickname for Pete, was “dead at age 28.”
Kim and Pete met on the set of Saturday Night Live in October 2021 when the Skims founder hosted an episode of the famous sketch comedy show.
In a confessional featured in an episode of The Kardashians, she said, “I called the producer at SNL and was like, ‘Hey, do you have Pete’s number? And they were like, ‘Yeah.’ I text him. I wasn’t even thinking like, ‘Oh my God, I’m gonna be in a relationship with him.’ I was just thinking, ‘Heard about this BDE, need to get out there, I need to jumpstart my…’” Kim told the cameras with a smile, “I was just basically DTF.”
