Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson’s relationship seems to be blooming but fans think there is more to their budding romance. Many have accused the duo of merely pulling a stunt to keep them topping headlines.
There is no juicier story than celebrity hookups and the Kardashians are never short on that. One of the biggest shockers of 2021 was SKIMS CEO Kim Kardashian’s reported romance with “Saturday Night Live” star Pete Davidson.
While the pair seem smitten with each other having found something special, their numerous fans think otherwise. Many consider them an unlikely pair, perhaps due to their bizarre age difference, while others believe their romance to be a form of publicity stunt.
Notwithstanding, given the reality star’s dating history and yet-to-be-finalized divorce from Kanye West, it is safe to say no one saw this coming.
Kim Kardashian And Pete Davidson’s Relationship
“Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star Kim Kardashian’s fling with her 28-year-old boo hardly seems like a chance encounter. In fact, it all began in a picture-perfect fairy tale world where they got to share their first kiss. Literally!
On October 9, 2021, the duo appeared together on “SNL” during Kim’s first hosting gig on the show. During the show, they co-starred as Aladdin and Jasmine from the popular Disney sketch, landing a chance to share their first kiss.
In an unexpected development, the duo appeared all loved up barely a month later as they held hands while enjoying a roller coaster ride. That raised speculations that the two might be in a relationship.
Three days later, they enjoyed a private date in an Italian eatery in Staten Island, New York. Sources confirmed the “SNL” star arranged the private rooftop dinner, with no security detail in tow.
Making Headlines And Becoming Family Official
The stars continued making headlines for days with their joint public appearances and subtle PDAs. Then on November 18, just days after sources confirmed the reality star kept gushing about Davidson to her family, a photo of them together surfaced on Instagram.
The shot showed the duo wearing identical outfits from the Skims pajamas collection as they posed together, with Kris Jenner and rapper Flavor Flav on Davidson’s birthday.
Another picture of them surfaced days later on Instagram. The pair reportedly posed for selfies with a tourist while out on a secret date in Los Angeles.
Over the holidays in December, they hit Davidson’s hometown, where the fashion entrepreneur met her beau’s mom for the first time.
The lovebirds also attended Kris’ annual Christmas party as a couple, with sources claiming the momager was already obsessed with Davidson.
More Serious Than We Think
The onset of Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson’s relationship raised brows, as many tried to make sense of their seemingly newfound connection. Hanging in the same circle and going on dates together only fueled the dating rumors.
However, a source confirmed at the time that the duo were just friends hanging out. Sources sang a different tune days later following their private rooftop dinner date on November 4.
A source revealed “something” was going on between the duo which Kim found exciting. The source also disclosed the business mogul liked Davidson for being a chill, casual guy, as well as the twosome’s plans to see each other again.
The divorced mom of four seemed to make do with those plans, as an insider confirmed in the days that followed, that Kim couldn’t stop talking to her sisters about Davidson.
Insiders’ reports also described the television personality as “giddy” about him despite knowing his past. The same source also revealed the pair kept texting each other all day, showing their romance was more than just a fling.
The ultimate confirmation seemed to come in January 2022, when a source divulged the unlikely sweethearts had been spending more time together and were getting very serious.
The source also revealed Kim was smitten and very excited about their relationship while Davidson was intrigued by her success.
Another report claimed Davidson, who resided in Staten Island, New York, had plans to be in Los Angeles more often. That way, he could ensure his long-distance relationship with his California-based sweetheart would work.
Are They Dating For Real?
While several insiders have issued supposed confirmations that Kim and Davidson are dating, the couple is yet to publicly declare their relationship status.
Not like it makes so much of a difference though, as the twosome’s enviable PDAs and numerous romantic vacays kind of say it all.
Notably, the Hollywood sweethearts rang in the new year with a luxurious romantic trip to the Bahamas. Pictures of them making the most of their holiday getaway have since flooded the media.
The closest thing to a romance confirmation from the 41-year-old came during her appearance on “Honesty With Bari Weiss” in December 2021.
When asked to name her favorite cast member on “SNL” the fashion mogul called the question a set-up, before chipping in the now-iconic phrase, “you know who it is.”
Kim’s newfound happiness with Davidson, 13-years her junior, has led sources to tag the comedian as the antidote the entrepreneur needed following her divorce from Kanye West.
Fans think It’s A Publicity Stunt
Since the cat slipped out of the bag, Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson’s relationship has made major headlines. The increasing publicity has led many to speculate that perhaps that was all it was meant to be after all – A publicity stunt.
Various social media platforms have gone wild with such assumptions, with most netizens theorizing the billionaire only craved a taste of what her sister, Kourtney Kardashian had with her partner, Travis Scott.
Many believe Kim was only using Davidson to reclaim the media attention for herself. These speculations, although baseless, have been accompanied by mostly-scathing comments.
But the reality star seems not to care, focusing instead on her philanthropy works, career ventures, family, and blossoming happiness with Pete Davidson.
