Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson confirmed their breakup this week after dating for less than a year. According to a source, their age gap is at the root of their split. “”Pete is 28 and Kim is 41; they are just in very different places right now,” according to the insider. “Pete is completely impulsive and wants her to go to New York or wherever he is at any time.” But Kim has four kids and it isn’t that easy. She needs to concentrate on the kids.”
While Davidson is clearly a busy professional actor and comedian, Kardashian has several obligations outside of parenthood, including her starring role in Hulu’s The Kardashians and various businesses, including her recently launched SKIMS line. “This relationship and other things going on in her life” had left the beauty entrepreneur “very fatigued.” In addition to her regular responsibilities, she was under a lot of pressure from her ex-husband, Kanye West. Though he’s been less visible recently, West has been vocal about his displeasure of Kardashian’s new romance for some time.
“When Kim is with someone else, Kanye may cause problems with the kids,” one source added. He’s trying to divide and conquer. He just can’t stop himself… Kim is a fantastic mother who loves her children. She desires and requires peace in her house and in her life.” The ex-couple met on the set of Saturday Night Live and even had a sketch where they shared a stage kiss. They began dating soon after, and it appeared that things were becoming more serious in recent months. Kardashian recently travelled to Australia to see Davidson when he was filming a new film.
They’ve both made an effort to see one other since they started dating in October 2021, going from Los Angeles to New York, but it appears the effort has been too much for them.
