Stealing the headlines is news about The Kardashians star Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson’s split, and it’s time to talk about why it happened. The pair just ended their relationship, and there has been a lot of speculation about the reasons for the breakup. Some fans of the couple, who were gushing over how cute they looked together, expected the romance to last for a while longer, and maybe result in something really special, such as marriage.
The comedian met Kim on SNL, and they shared a kiss onscreen during a skit. According to Kim, she felt a connection during the smooch, and wasn’t sure if it was because she hadn’t kissed anyone but Kanye West for about 10 years. So, she decided to see if it would lead to something more. Kim hadn’t publicly been in a relationship since February 2021, after filing for divorce from her ex-husband, Kanye, with whom she had a tumultuous relationship. Kim and Pete met on SNL and were officially dating one month later.
However, The Kardashians star and SNL alum broke it off last week, and have decided to go their separate ways, although they have nothing but mutual respect for one another. As reported by Page Six, an insider explained that the reason for their split was their age difference. Kim is 41, and 13 years older than Pete, who is 28-years-old. According to the insider, this puts them at very different stages in their lives, with dramatically different goals. Pete is focusing on his career, and Kim wants to spend a lot of time with her four children. She also wants to prioritize her businesses, family, and starring in the Hulu reality show. Filming The Kardashians is demanding, but Kim is able to handle a lot of pressure.
It appears that wanting different things out of life was only one of the reasons for the breakup, since their conflicting schedules were also an issue, and turned their relationship into a long-distance romance. Pete is currently shooting a movie in Australia, while Kim is handling her myriad responsibilities on the other side of the world. Since they weren’t always together, Pete reportedly usually wanted Kim to fly to his location at a moment’s notice, which was rarely feasible for the busy mother. Kanye also did his best to make the relationship harder for them. An insider said, as per Page Six, “When Kim is with someone else, Kanye can cause problems with the kids. He tries to divide and conquer. He can’t help it.”
The rapper Kanye expressed his distaste for Pete with a lot of harsh remarks, clearly angry about the comedian’s relationship with his ex-wife. Fans suspect that the Yeezy founder is most likely the happiest about the split. Fans of The Kardashians and SNL are wishing Kim and Pete well as they forge ahead in their lives, post-split. After nine months of dating, they decided to remain friends, rather than severing their connection entirely, but they will surely be seeing less of each other.
