Pete Davidson might possibly be the luckiest guy in Hollywood, if his latest rumoured relationship with Kim Kardashian is anything to go by.

In recent years the Saturday Night Live (SNL) comedian has been in several high profile relationships, from his engagement to singer Ariana Grande, dates with Kate Beckinsale and short romance with Bridgerton star Phoeve Dynevor last summer.

Following Kardashian’s recent hosting gig on SNL, it appears the mother-of-four has struck up an unlikely friendship with the 28-year-old, with some even going as far as to say the pair are an item.

Over Halloween weekend the pair were seen holding hands on a rollercoaster in California, which naturally set tongues wagging, and have since been photographed hanging out together on numerous occasions.

Here’s everything you need to know about Kim Kardashian’s rumoured relationship with Pete Davidson:

Are Pete Davidson And Kim Kardashian Instagram Official Yet?

Well, it depends what you mean by Instagram-official. Have they each posted a picture on their Instagram accounts of the other, with a reference to love and relationships? The answer is no. Have they appeared together on Instagram? Yes.

Kardashian shared a photo on Instagram of her and Davidson snuggled up, with a caption that read: 'late nite snack [sic],' seemingly take on the night they attending The Kardashians premiere together.

Kardashian made her first reference to Pete Davidson on the fifth episode of The Kardashians Hulu show.

While he didn't appear on screen, the episode documented the end of October and filmed the time Kardashian was spotted holding hands with Davidson at Knott's Scary Farm in Buena Park, California, during Halloween weekend.

Speaking earlier on in the episode about why things with her ex-husband Kanye West didn't work out, her sister Kourtney said: 'Khloé's like, "I don't know if I'm ready for single Kim."'

Kim then asked why and what 'single Kim' means, before Kourtney asked how things were with West. 'He did an interview last night saying that SNL got me to say that I divorced him,' the mother-of-four began.

'I came prepared with my monologue, and that really upset him. And I showed him the monologue, but he said he never read it. He just didn't read the text and you know, Kanye had a hard time with what I said. He was like, "I haven't signed the divorce papers."'

Kourtney later asked: 'Well, what's he waiting for?'

Kim replied: 'I don't know. I ask him all the time. He says he will and then he's like, "Well, I don't want a divorce so I'm not going to sign it."'

Of her decision to end her marriage, she added: 'I'm very sure now. I knew it had to be done when I filed because I just knew it wasn't the right situation for me and now I feel super good.'

At Kris Jenner's birthday party, Davidson came up in conversation when Scott Disick asked Kim: 'How was last night?' seemingly referring to Knott's Scary Farm outing.

'I was probably busy,' she said while laughing.

Scott went on to say: 'I get it. I look at all the comments, and everyone's like, the guy is f*cking nice.'

Kim replied, referring to her now boyfriend: 'Surely the sweetest, nicest human being on the planet.'

On March 1, Kardashian seemingly referenced one of Davidson's exes, Grande, in one of her most recent Instagram captions. Sharing three photographs of herself dressed in an all-black ensemble, she captioned the post: 'just like magic [sic].'

Of course, Kardashian might not be aware that Grande released a 2020 song of the same name ('just like magic'), also typed in lower case, but the caption has certainly raised eyebrows.

'The Ari reference?? Babe!! [sic],' one of Kardashian's followers commented on the post. 'Oh ari lyric [sic],' another added. 'ARIANA STAN [sic],' commented one fan.

Grande and Davidson dated from May to October 2018, and were engaged just a month after they were photographed together. They split a year later.

During an appearance on The Tonight Show last week, the singer serenaded the comedian with the lyrics: 'I said, it should have been me — ohhhhh, it should been me. Pete Davidson, how you gonna do this to me?'

Before the performance Miley shared a post about the pair cohosting a TV special over New Year, writing: 'BIG DEBUT ENERGY 🍾 Pete and I are official!

'CO-HOSTS that is! Watch @fallontonight 🗽Our first show together as a pair! We’ll be talking about #MileysNewYearsEveParty hosted by US in Miami! [sic]'

The post has been 'liked' over three million times and Cosmopolitan reports Kim was one of its fans.

Despite Kim's apparent approval of the post, it seems some fans think a relationship between Miley and Pete would 'make more sense'.

'Kim Kardashian is going to be furious,' one user wrote. 'This would make a lot more sense,' added another. 'Girl do you know what this caption is gonna do to the internet amidst the Kim K rumours,' joked one.

Days earlier Kim liked a recent post trolling her relationship with Davidson. On November 30, Pete and his sister Casey Davidson attended the New York Knicks vs Brooklyn Nets game at the Barclays Center.

Casey Davidson then posted the above picture of the pair, with the instruction to her followers: 'Caption this.' It was a command which people happily engaged in, resulting in a series of jokey, gently trolling responses that included: 'what does someone even get Kim for Christmas,' 'Yea now I get a lifetime supply of Skims,' and 'Kim's shorter than you think.'

And Comments By Celebs, ever quick off the draw, spotted that a very important person liked the post.

Are Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson dating?

Yes, and Davidson has even met Kardashian's children, who she shares with her ex Kanye West.

During a teaser of The Kardashians Hulu show, the reality star said: 'I believe in love. That's why hopefully there will be just one more wedding for me.'

The conversation involved 'momager' Kris Jenner, as well as friends Simon Huck and his now-husband Phil Riportella.

At the time, she was dressed in all black while having tea with her loved ones.

Prior to talking about her take on love, the group had been discussing Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker's approaching nuptials.

After speaking about her sister and Barker's desire to have children together, she quipped: 'To me a baby [means] you're stuck for life. Marriages come and go!'

The three-time divorced mother-of-four later told her friends who were engaged at the time: 'No offence, guys! Take it from me! And good luck at your wedding!'

Referring to her trio of marriages, she added: 'Fourth time's a charm!'

Six months after Kardashian and Davidson were first rumoured to be dating, he was pictured cruising around with her eldest daughter North in a bright pink, electric Moke car on April 3, 2022.

According to TMZ, the ride took place in Scott Disick's gated community in Los Angeles. Sources told the news outlet that Disick's daughter Penelope, who he shares with his ex Koutney Kardashian, was also in the vehicle with Davidson and North, who were coordinated in black.

Prior to this, in a new interview with Variety magazine, published in March 2022, Kim Kardashian opened up about her relationship with Davidson and the possibility of starring in her family's new Hulu reality show, The Kardashians.

'I have not filmed with him,' she said. 'And I’m not opposed to it. It’s just not what he does. But if there was an event happening and he was there, he wouldn’t tell the cameras to get away. I think I might film something really exciting coming, but it wouldn’t be for this season.'

According to the mother-of-four, the show will touch on 'how we met and who reached out to who and how it happened and all the details that everyone wants to know. I’m definitely open to talking, and I definitely explain it'.

While the pair might not have spent New Year's together, it appears they did hop on a private jet and fly to the Bahamas for a well-deserved break.

The Daily Mail recently ran photos of the pair boarding the private jet to the holiday destination, dressed in full black ensembles.

It appears that Kardashian and Davidson's relationship is blossoming, as a source told US Weekly they are 'getting serious' between the pair.

'Things have definitely escalated quickly but in a healthy, fun way. Right now, they are just enjoying their time together and seeing where things go,' the source revealed.

Things aren't being left completely to chance however, with Pete Davidson recently spending significantly more time in LA in order to be closer to Kim – so much so that a source told US Weekly that the comedian is looking for a house in the city, in order to be there more permanently. That hardly shouts 'casual' if you ask us...

It has also been said that Kardashian doesn't want rush into a really serious relationship with Davidson right now. She is, however, said to be enjoying the 'early stages' of their romance.

The source added: 'They are super smitten over each other though, that’s for sure.'

While it's widely believed the couple didn't spend Christmas Day together, HollywoodLife reports the pair met up on Boxing Day and were spotted at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

A source told the publication that they were seen at the Polo Lounge on December 26, with both celebrities dressed in relaxed attire. Kardashian spent Christmas with her four children after celebrating Christmas Eve at a low-key party at her mother Kris Jenner's home with her family.

Kardashian liked a Tweet written by James Gunn about Davidson on March 3.

The Tweet, later re-shared via Comments by Celebs, reads: 'For the record, Pete Davidson is one of the nicest, sweetest guys I know. A truly generous, tender & funny spirit, he treats everyone around him with respect.'

On December 18m Davidson and Kardashian were seen heading to a cinema on Staten Island for what appeared to be a date night.

According to Page Six the rumoured couple were seen arriving at the Atrium Stadium Cinemas, with Kardashian dressed all in black and Davidson wearing a jacket and a backpack. The pair were joined by Scott Disick and his friend Chris Reda and also dined at Angelina’s Ristorante together.

Days later the Daily Mail published photos of Davidson leaving the Four Seasons hotel, where Kardashian is believed to have stayed, reporting that the comedian 'looked to be on cloud nine as he was seen waltzing out of the luxury hotel accompanied by security'.

During a recent interview on Honestly With Bari Weiss, Kardashian was asked who was her 'favourite' SNL star and she replied: 'What a setup, what a setup, Bari. You know who it is.'

During an appearance at the American Music Awards red carpet on November 21 Entertainment Tonight asked Davidson's friend Machine Gun Kelly whether rumours of his relationship with Kim Kardashian are true.

In Succession's Cousin Greg-like fashion the musician replied 'No comment, no comment', while smiling and covering his mouth.

Responding to the rumours last week Davidson's co-star Kenan Thompson told People at the American Museum of Natural History's 2021 Museum Gala: 'I mean, you've got to be happy for love, I guess. If it's love! They look like they're having a good time. I'm always happy when he's happy.

Bowen Yang added: 'I don't know what the nature of the friendship is, but it seems like they're having a good time hanging out.'

'Pete and Kim? Damn, Pete. Damn!' added Redd. 'I hope they're happy. They're wearing matching outfits so I think they're on their way... that's what Instagram told me.'

On November 17 the pair were photographed holding hands in Palm Springs, California close to Kris Jenner's home where they have reportedly been staying, according to the Daily Mail.

In photos obtained by the publication the mother-of-four wears a pair of grey tracksuit bottoms and a white body, while her partner wears an oversized black T-shirt and a pair of Skims flannel trousers.

A source close to Kardashian has told E! News that the pair are officially an item, noting: 'They are really happy and seeing where it goes.'

'Pete has told her he doesn't want to see anyone else,' the source said. 'She is telling some people they aren't super serious but she isn't seeing anyone else... She's trying to not make a big deal about it but is super into him.'

The source added that 'Kim is smitten over him and it's very exciting to her'.

The pair celebrated the SNL star's recent 28th birthday, attended by the likes of Flavor Flav and Kardashian's mother, Kris Jenner.

In a photo shared on Flavor Flav's Instagram account the foursome are seen wearing matching flannel ensembles.

According to TMZ and Page Six sources told have said that Kardashian and Davidson enjoyed a private dinner in Staten Island following Halloween weekend. One even told Page Six that the comedian organised the rooftop meet up.

TMZ reports Kardashian left the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Manhattan and met the 27-year-old in Staten Island, where he lives. According to sources the pair dined out at his favourite restaurant, Campania.

'Pete arranged a dinner on the rooftop privately. It was just the two of them,' one source told Page Six. 'They didn't have any security with them. They quietly were able to sneak in and out.” A representative for the SNL star had no comment when asked by the publication.

The pair were seen on what appeared to be a date night with Kardashian’s friends, Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker over Halloween weekend.

The rumoured couple spent the day at Knott's Scary Farm in Buena Park, California, where they were photographed holding hands on a rollercoaster.

Unsurprisingly, Twitter users couldn’t quite comprehend the sudden rumoured romance between the pair, especially given that they’d had no prior warning the duo were even friends.

However, a source close to Kardashian has reportedly told People that the pair are just friends.

‘They hang in the same circles so they will be together from time to time,’ they told the publication. ‘It's just friends hanging out.’

Have Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson made a red carpet appearance as a couple yet?

Yes. Kardashian and Davidson made their red carpet debut as a couple at the premiere for the Kardashian family's upcoming Hulu series in April 2022.

While they weren’t pictured together on the red carpet, they were most certainly present.

As to why Kardashian and Davidson didn’t pose for pictures together, the comedian’s feeling towards the camera might have something to do with this.

In an interview with E! News, Kardashian explained that while he was happy to ‘support’ her, cameras just aren't 'his thing'. She said: 'He's here to support me. It's my thing.

'I don't think it's his thing to be all up here with me. So, I'm just so happy he's here.'

Still, Davidson being camera shy didn't stop the paparazzi photographing them holding hands on the night. The pair later seemingly headed to a restaurant for dinner.

'Late nite snack, [sic]' Kardashian captioned two photos of the pair cuddled up together.

TMZ has since reported that Davidson won't be seen on The Kardashians series until season two.

Kardashian will, however, speak about Davidson in season one.

Speaking about Davidson, Kardashian previously told Variety: 'I have not filmed with him... and I’m not opposed to it. It’s just not what he does. But if there was an event happening and he was there, he wouldn’t tell the cameras to get away.'

What have Pete, Kim and their friends and family said?

In an interview with Hoda Kotb for her Making Space podcast, Kardashian opened up in-depth about Davidson.

She said of her unexpected relationship with Davidson: 'I think that, you know, sometimes things happen when you just least expect it. It was the last thing that I was really planning on.

'I took, you know, 10 months or something before I dated or talked to anyone. And I just wanted that time to really figure out and go through the motions. "Am I making the right decision? How do I feel about this?"'

She continued: 'So once I went through all of the motions, I finally was, like, "OK, guys, I am so ready to meet someone." And I randomly did.'

Speaking about protecting their privacy as a couple, she said: 'I do think that I am holding, you know, a little bit more close to my heart on certain aspects of my relationship with Pete, and it feels good just to know that, like, we have this connection and we have our little bubble of a relationship world that we live in that, like, not a lot of people know about.'

Revealing that she doesn't put her guard up following her divorce, she went on to say: 'We all know someone that's been through a really hard time in relationships and everyone's been OK and everyone comes out OK. So you just have to, like, let yourself go and open yourself up to receive something and just be a good person and you'll get that back.'

The mum-of-four recalled a sweet moment that happened with Davidson prior to the interview.

She explained: 'We were driving in the car yesterday and I just, like, looked at him and I was like, "Thank you." And he was like, "What?" And I was like, "For running errands with me, like, this is so much fun just to, like, go to a doctor's appointment or go to the dentist and just, like, run errands. I'm having so much fun."'

The podcast interview came amid details of her conversation with Davidson at the Met Gala being aired.

In the first episode of The Kardashians, she began: 'I ran into Pete Davidson at the Met.

She continued: 'And I was like, "I am so scared [to host the NBC sketch show on October 9]. I don't know what I signed up for." And he's like, "Can you read cue cards? You're good. You're good."'

Following the news that Davidson officially called Kardashian his 'girlfriend' during an interview with People, Caitlyn Jenner has dished details on Kardashian's new romance.

Speaking on the Capital Breakfast with Roman Kemp, she said of the SKIMS founder: 'She does seem very happy.

'I've talked a little bit about it with my family. I have to be very quiet.'

She then recalled Kardashian discussing her meeting Davidson, after she highlighted that they are yet to cross paths.

Jenner said: 'But I was talking to her the other day and I said, "You know, I haven't even met him yet. He hasn't been at any function that I've been at." And she goes, "Oh my god, you'll love him. We have to go to dinner." So anyway, that's going to happen here pretty soon.'

Seemingly, it's onwards and upwards for Kardashian and Davidson, and Jenner couldn't be more happy for her.

Referring to the mum-of-four, she said she's 'the most amazing human being I know out there'.

She continued: 'I mean, she's smart, articulate, highly motivated, runs a big house, raises kids, builds a billion-dollar business.'

Previously, a source told Us Weekly that Kardashian has been encouraged to pursue the relationship from her nearest and dearest.

'One of the first things Kim did was to get her family and friends’ advice, and they all encouraged her to go for it,' the insider told the publication. 'It’s been very obvious for a while now that she’s been missing some fun and laughter in her life, and of course Pete offers that in abundance.'

Have Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson made a red carpet appearance together?

Who has Pete Davidson dated?

Grab your pen and paper because we’re about to go in on this one. The star was once in a long-term relationship with comedian Larry David’s daughter Cazzie David, then popped the question to Grande in 2018 (resulting in the hit song ‘thank u, next’) and then was seen kissing Kate Beckinsale.

Beckinsale recently reacted to rumours of Davidson's relationship with Kardashian.

'I love how every time Pete Davidson starts dating another beautiful celebrity everyone’s like "wtf is happening how did he do this what is this mystery???" and everybody refuses to entertain the possibility that he might have a nice personality,' the tweet read.

The actor 'liked' a screenshot of the viral post which was shared on Instagram, so it would appear she agrees with the sentiment that Davidson has a 'nice personality'.
