It’s official, and as confirmed by E! News through a source, Kim Kardashian is “completely enthralled” with Pete Davidson, and they are now “casually dating.”
Reality star Kim, 41, and 28-year-old Saturday Night Live comedian Pete Davidson are officially dating: “They are really happy and seeing where it goes,” the source said.
“Pete has told her he doesn’t want to see anyone else,” the source added. “She [Kim] 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.”
Kim and Pete’s possible romance and her feelings for him came to light when Kim brought him to her mother, Kris Jenner’s Palm Springs home, an event that has been described as a “huge deal.”
Kim Kardashian knew Pete when she and Kanye Weest were still married, but they got back and reconnected when she hosted Saturday Night Live in early October.
During Kim’s first-ever appearance on the comedy series, she and Pete portrayed Princess Jasmine and Aladdin in a sketch where they shared a kiss on a magic carpet ride.
Few weeks after that, they were photographed holding hands on a rollercoaster at Knott’s Berry Farm in Yorba Linda, Calif.,
Although the lovebirds are currently living on far away from each other, a source reveals that, “They are making the distance work and have plans to continue seeing each other.”
It’s not clear at what point the two chose to take their friendship to a new level, but fans had predicted it happening. At the time, one wrote on Twitter, “Kim kardashian and Pete Davidson are dating ?!?! Something is in the air.”
Reacting to their dating news, many other social media users have remarked that the signs were there, with some pointing out that Kim and Pete were dressed alike in a photo from his recent birthday party. Another Twitter user noted: “Pete Davidson and Kim Kardashian matching their clothes?!?!” another Twitter user joked. “The world ain’t ready for this one.”
