Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson officially split, days after the new season of Kim’s reality show wrapped its filming. There’s rampant speculation among entertainment insiders, Media Take Out has learned, that the split and the wrap occurring just days apart is no coincidence.
But Kim’s team is trying their best to make the split look like a natural occurrence.
E! News, which has a longstanding relationship with the Kardashians, is reporting that while the pair has “a lot of love and respect for each other,” they found that the long distance dynamic and their demanding schedules “made it really difficult to maintain a relationship.”
The split occurred sometime this week. Wrapping for Kim’s show stopped last week.
Pete has been spending part of the summer in Australia working on the movie Wizards! As for Kim, she continues to raise four kids—North, Psalm, Chicago and Saint, with her ex Kanye West.
Now what’s going on with Kanye’s divorce? Well that remains to be seen.
“The divorce is moving ahead with Kanye,” another insider shares with E! News. “They are happily co-parenting.”
Back in November, a source confirmed to E! News that Pete and Kim were officially dating. At the time, the insider said both parties were really happy seeing where it goes. “Pete has told her he doesn’t want to see anyone else,” the source noted. “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.”
