Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson split after nine months of dating

Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson have officially split after nine months of dating.

The Kardashians star, 41, and comedian, 28, were first linked last October, after that now infamous Saturday Night Live sketch.

They made their romance Instagram official earlier this year, before hitting the red carpet together at the Met Gala.

However, the couple have now gone their separate ways, following Pete’s relocation to Australia for a new acting role.

According to E! News, they have simply decided to just be friends.

Insiders told the publication that, while they have love and respect for one another, the distance became too much for the budding couple.

Their demanding schedules also played a part, with the couple splitting this week.

Kim and Pete have yet to speak publicly on the news.

The pair, dubbed Kete, raised eyebrows about their romance at the end of last year, when they shared a kiss on SNL during a Disney-themed sketch.

They were later spotted on low-key date nights, and whipped fans into a frenzy when they were pictured holding hands on a rollercoaster during a night out with Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker.

Pete finally confirmed their romance in February by describing the mom-of-four as his ‘girlfriend’.

The Skims businesswoman spilled the beans on their fling, confessing that she was the one to approach the That Awkward Moment actor after their embrace.

In a recent episode of The Kardashians, she admitted that she felt a ‘vibe’ from their kiss, and wanted to explore a connection – but Pete skipped her after-party.

‘Everyone was at my after-party. Does not give me the time of day,’ she said on the show. 

‘So a few days later, 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,”‘ Kim continued.

‘I was just thinking, “heard about this BDE [big d**k energy], need to get out there. I was just basically DTF [down to f**k].”’

She also hailed her beau as ‘the best human being I’ve ever met, like the best heart’.

However, they hit a rough patch early on when Kanye voiced his disapproval over their relationship, sharing now-deleted rants on Instagram slamming the couple.
