KARDASHIAN fans have surmised that Kris Jenner is now Pete Davidson’s MAMA.
This comes after the SNL star fired his management team.
Back in April, Deadline confirmed that Pete had left his management team, Brillstein Entertainment Partners.
However, he will continue to be represented by ICM Partners.
Pete’s manager there, Tim Sarkes, executive produced two of his stand-up specials but no longer represents him.
The outlet reported that the Saturday Night Live star didn’t take his manager to meetings and isn’t sure he’ll be signing with anyone anytime soon.
No explanation was given as to why he left his previous management team.
Now that Pete is a free agent, Kardashian fans can’t help but wonder if mom Kris Jenner will be his new manager since he’s dating her daughter Kim Kardashian.
Rumors started flying on May 12 when Pop Talk podcast host Morgan Paige shared her thoughts on it on TikTok.
“Kris Jenner may be managing a new celebrity client. When I tell you I’m shaken to the core,” she said in the video.
Her video then went to an audio clip of her podcast episode, in which her guest said Pete had left his management group and her sources told them he would be dating Kris.
Us Weekly exclusively confirmed that these rumors are untrue.
The outlet reported that a source close to the reality star denied the claims.
“Kris isn’t Pete’s manager,” an insider told Us Weekly.
However, multiple sources confirmed that the mother has given the comedian plenty of advice.
PART OF THE FAMILY
Kris has been close to Pete since he and Kim started dating in October 2021.
During an ABC News special with Robin Roberts, the 66-year-old expressed her approval to her daughter’s boyfriend.
“He’s a really nice guy,” she said, adding that he was a “great partner” for Kim.
Two months into Pete and Kim’s relationship, a source tells E! News that Kris is “obsessed” with Pete and would love to go on vacation with him.
“[Kim’s] I’m really excited to have him with me and Kris is already obsessed with him,” the source said.
“The whole family is a fan of Pete’s and would love to holiday with him.”
Kris and Pete get along so well that he even celebrated his 28th birthday with her, Kim and Flava Flav at Kris’ mansion.
Pete is so close that he, along with Scott Disick and Travis Barker, sent Kris flowers for Mother’s Day this year.
She shared a photo of the bright pink and orange flowers to her Instagram Story with the caption, “Thanks #petedavidson!!! I love you” and ended it with three heart emojis.
The mother-of-five has been her children’s manager since 2007, when the first episode of KUWTK aired.
In April 2021, she told WSJ Magazine, “First of all, I think if it’s your child, you go beyond anything that would be asked of you if you were just a decent person getting a typical paycheck.”
“So I think there’s an advantage for me in being totally devoted to the kids and wanting what’s best for them and really going the extra mile and putting in the extra time.”
She continued: “I’m on 24/7 standby, which happens all the time. … I feel like a fireman because on some levels I put out fires all day, every day. I think I’m good because they’re my kids and I think I’m suited for so many different reasons in life.”
The Wall Street Journal also reported that Kim will most likely take over her role when Kris retires.
The reality star has previously “weighed” decisions about family businesses, telling the outlet, “When there’s a deal, it’s always my mum, I and our lawyer who talk about it.”
When asked if she would be expected to follow in her mother’s footsteps, she added, “We’ve talked about it. I would assemble a team of people to take over.
“I hope it doesn’t happen for very long because I’m very busy,” she admitted.
Kim has worked hard to become a lawyer and hopes to one day have her own practice.
Kris doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon.
