Kim Kardashian has split from Pete Davidson because of his “immaturity and young age.”
The KUWTK star, 41, and the former SNL funnyman have decided to call it quits after nine months of dating and decided to just be friends.
The couple – who have a 13-year age difference – are said to be at different stages in life, making it difficult for them to maintain a long-term relationship.
“Pete is 28 and Kim is 41 — they’re just in very different places right now,” a source told Page Six.
“Pete is super spontaneous and impulsive and wants her to fly to New York or wherever he is.
“But Kim has four children and it’s not that easy. She needs to focus on the kids.”
The source told the publication that Kim is “completely exhausted from this relationship and other things in her life.”
They added, “When Kim is with someone else, Kanye can cause problems for the kids. He tries to divide and rule. He can’t help it.
“Kim is a truly dedicated mother and her children will always come first. She wants and needs harmony at home and in her life.”
The split came sometime this week, according to E! News.
“They have a lot of love and respect for each other,” says an insider, “but found that the long distance and their demanding schedules made it really difficult to maintain a relationship.”
Pete spent part of the summer in Australia working on a film.
Kim is rumored to be reconnecting with ex-husband Kanye West, with whom she shares children North, Psalm, Chicago and Saint.
Evidence of a breakup?
Fans had scoured hints of an impending split after Pete, 28, was spotted hanging out with the cast of his new horror comedy Bodies, Bodies, Bodies in candid behind-the-scenes snaps.
In the photos, Pete beamed for the camera while posing with his co-stars Amandla Stenberg, Maria Bakalova, Myha’la Herrold, Chase Sui Wonders, Rachel Sennott and Lee Pace.
The comedian had character, wore a white tank top and had one black eye.
Fans shared the intimate shots on Reddit, speculating that he looked “single” in it.
One user wrote: “Pete is too carefree and happy here. This man is just glad he doesn’t have to tan himself anymore.”
Another added, “He looks single as hell.”
Kim and Pete have sparked shared rumors during their time apart in recent weeks.
Pete is currently in Australia on the set of David Michôd’s 2023 comedy Wizards in Cairns!
MISSING KIM ACTION
Kim, meanwhile, has been hard at work filming the second season of her Hulu reality show, which premieres September 22.
Fans are convinced she’s back with her ex Kanye West.
The SKIMS founder filed for divorce from the rapper in February 2021 after nearly seven years of marriage.
However, the Kardashians star has apparently dropped several hints that the two could be back together in recent weeks.
Last week, she wore white bikini bottoms and a matching white top that read “The Incredibles.”
Fans recalled when Kanye gave a self-confessed interview alongside Kim on Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
In the confessional, he said the only reason he agreed to the interview was because it reminded him of the Disney movie The Incredibles.
“It starts with the interviews, the superheroes do interviews. The woman has a big ass and I just see our life becoming more and more like ‘The Incredibles’ until we can finally fly,” he said, laughing.
“He would,” Kim replied with an awkward laugh.
Fans were quick to react to Kim’s photos, writing, “Is this a hint of a Kimye comeback?”
PETE AND KIM
The couple met on the set of Saturday Night Live and shared a kissing scene during an Aladdin magic carpet.
“It was a stage kiss, but it was still a little zing,” Kim said on the Not Skinny But Not Fat podcast in April.
They began dating in November 2021, and a source told E! News at the time, “Pete told her he didn’t want to see anyone anymore.
“She tells some people they’re not very serious, but she doesn’t date anyone else… She tries not to make a big deal out of it, but she’s super into him.”
After they began dating, Davidson appeared on episodes of The Kardashians.
“I didn’t even think, oh my god, I’m going to have a relationship with him,” Kardashian said on the show.
“I just thought, ‘I heard about this BDE, gotta get out of there.’ I was basically just DTF.”
