The rumours are swirling. Kim Kardashian apparently has a new beau. The man in question is Pete Davidson. Here’s what we know about the duo.
So, who is Pete Davidson? Pete is an American comedian, actor, film producer and screenwriter. Over the years he has been part of NBC’s late-night sketch comedy Saturday Night Live and has also appeared on the MTV shows such as Guy Code, Wild 'n Out, and Failosophy. Pete is a stand-up comic as well and has been a staple on the circuit.
At 28 years of age he is much younger than Kim Kardashian, who recently celebrated her 40th with her family on a private island. But we digress.
Davidson has received much acclaim for a rather personal brand of humour which make him relatable to audiences.
However, it’s rumours as far as we know it. Neither Kim or Pete have made a statement about their purported relationship. The couple were spotted holding hands on a roller-coaster at Knott’s Berry Farm in California. This was shortly before Halloween. That said, the pair were not alone and were accompanied by Kim’s family members, including Kourtney Kardashian and her fiancé, Travis Barker. While the duo have several common connections, the biggest surprise is likely Kim’s former husband, Kanye West. Kanye often collaborates with Davidson’s friend Kid Cudi.
While most assume this is merely a warm friendship, many are suggesting there’s more to it than meets the eye. Since Kim filed for divorce with Kanye after six years of marriage with the Grammy winner, she’s not been spotted with anyone else, lending credence to the rumour that she might be dating Pete.
Pete, the star of The King of Staten Island, recently called off his relationship with Phoebe Dynevor, after mere five months of dating. Oh, when it comes to net worth Kim is way ahead of Pete – the former is estimated to be at least 10 times wealthier.
Pete used to live in Brooklyn Heights, New York. In April 2021, the comedian moved into his own residence in Staten Island. His father, Scott Matthew Davidson, was a firefighter and first-responder who perished in the 9/11 attacks in New York.
