With the Kardashian-Jenner family‘s new Hulu series gearing up for its second season premiere, fans are dying to know if Kim Kardashian‘s ex-boyfriend, Pete Davidson, will be on the show.
“I have not filmed with him,” the KKW Beauty mogul, who shares kids North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm with ex-husband Kanye “Ye” West, initially told Variety in a March 2022 interview. Keep reading for everything to know about Pete’s possible appearance.
What Did Kim Kardashian Say About Pete Davidson Being on Season 1?
“I’m not opposed to it. It’s just not what he does,” Kim explained in the same Variety interview. “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.”
While Pete wasn’t on season 1, that didn’t mean the pair’s past relationship was off-limits. Viewers will see “how we met and who reached out to who and how it happened and all the details that everyone wants to know,” the former Keeping Up With the Kardashians star assured. “I’m definitely open to talking, and I definitely explain it.”
Will Pete Davidson Appear on The Kardashians Season 2?
In the season 2 trailer, released in July 2022, Pete made a brief appearance. “Babe … do you want to shower with me really quick?” Kim asked in the clip and the comedian ran over to her. However, following their breakup, a source told Page Six in August 2022 that Pete will not really be featured that much.
“He’s in the background, but the reality world is not built for people like Pete,” the insider shared.
What Happened Between Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson?
After they got together in October 2021, Pete and Kim became Hollywood’s “It” couple. Despite (endless) drama with Kanye, the E! alum and the Saturday Night Live funnyman stayed strong. In fact, Kim was “definitely leaning on” Pete “for support” amid her divorce from the “Praise God” rapper, a source previously told Life & Style.
“The Kanye attacks are just vicious and uncalled for, and Pete sees how much it’s affecting her,” the insider added, referring to Kanye’s social media posts calling out Kim.
The Skims founder “has her family — they know what Kanye’s capable of — and they’re always there for her, but she needs an outsider, someone like Pete, who just has her back,” the source detailed. “He’s the shoulder she needs right now and he’s not doing it for any reason other than he cares about her.”
According to the insider, the King of Staten Island actor “has been there for her in person to hold her and he picks up her late-night phone calls.” Moreover, even if Pete and Kim’s “romance fizzles out someday, she says she appreciates that he’s a good, solid guy, and he keeps his word.”
But things between them didn’t last. In August 2022, multiple sources confirmed to Life & Style that they had split.
