The party is over for Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson. 

The couple no one saw coming shocked the world with a seemingly effortless love story, but after 10 months, the flame has fizzled. Looks like we'll be seeing breakups and weddings on The Kardashians on Hulu when season 2 drops. 

So what happened, exactly? We'll fill you in.

What happened to Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson?

On August 5, 2022, the two announced their amicable split and blamed hectic work schedules and long distance for their love's demise. Though most sources appear to confirm this sentiment, others say the relationship moved too quickly for Kim, though perhaps we'll never really know. 

Following the breakup, our SNL funnyman was seen rocking a "What... I feel like s--t" t-shirt while filming a new movie in Australia, which appears to confirm that the two are donezo. 

So, how did Kanye West take the news of his ex-wife's breakup? Maturely, of course—he only posted an Instagram taunting the comedian's death following the announcement. If you look closely at the fine print, the rapper even managed to throw shade at Kid Cudi as well—a two-for-one kind of post.

Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson: how it began

Kim Kardashian on SNL was a contentious topic. Despite doubt from critics and naysayers, the reality TV star managed to hold her own during her October 2021 hosting gig. Plus, she seemingly found a bit of romance in the process.

You might recall the skit where Kim and Pete impersonated Jasmine and Aladdin—and shared a quick kiss! This was the start of it all.

Following Kim's Saturday Night Live appearance, People spotted the two holding hands on a roller coaster at Knott’s Scary Farm in California.

PDA experts Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker, as well as Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox, were in attendance. Could this have possibly been a set-up? 

An insider also confirmed to People: “They hang in the same circles so they will be together from time to time. It's just friends hanging out.”

Of course, the rollercoaster pictures have caught the imagination of Twitter. One user tweeted: “If Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson start dating I will be OBSESSED.” 

Another wrote: “Kim Kardashian & Pete Davidson are my absolute 100% favorite couple of my ENTIRE LIFE o m g.” 

A third said: “idk if I’m more jealous of Pete Davidson or Kim Kardashian.”

And a heartbroken Pete stan also added: “I’m not going back on the internet until Pete Davidson and Kim Kardashian are over because I’m just really jealous of Kim now.” 

Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson in NYC

To fuel the dating speculation, Kim made her way to New York City (well, Staten Island) in early November 2021 for dinner with Pete in his hometown. TMZ got the scoop and reported that they were dining privately—no Kourt, Trav or MGK in sight—at an Italian restaurant called Campania.

They allegedly dined on the rooftop, appearing to suggest they are more than friends. Plus, considering they were just together for a spooky Halloween weekend, why do you think they're getting together—across the country, no less—for another outing so quickly? 

Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson's Valentine's Day

The KUWTK star appeared to confirm her relationship in early 2022 by venturing out on a romantic early V-Day dinner to Lilia's in Brooklyn, New York. The pair was spotted holding hands and kissing!

Kim Kardashian talks about Pete Davidson to 'Variety'

Apart from the occasional public sighting, the famous pair has been somewhat tight-lipped about their blossoming romance. No doubt, Kim's very public and dramatic divorce from Kanye West is a key factor in their desire to keep their relationship quiet.

However, in an interview with Variety about the famous family's new Hulu show, Kim finally opened up about Pete and whether there's a possibility of him making a cameo. 

She explained that while she hasn't filmed with him yet, she's not opposed to the idea. Kim said: "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." 

The SKIMS founder also revealed that she does talk about him in the show, and even explains how and when their relationship all began.

As you might recall, the duo made a red carpet appearance at the 2022 Met Gala, solidifying their newfound love. 

However, in true Kim K fashion, all attention from Pete was quickly adverted when people realized the reality star was wearing Marilyn Monroe's "Happy Birthday, Mr. President" Jean Louis rhinestone dress. (Yes, Marilyn Monroe's actual dress...which she allegedlly damaged.) 

Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson's summer vacation

In June 2022, the two made their way to a tropical location for some rest, relaxation and PDA. 

'The Kardashians' season 2

Yes, The Kardashians season 2 is underway, and it's arriving on Hulu sooner than fans might've expected. What truly sold viewers on the first look, however, was Pete's quick cameo at the end of the trailer. 

Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson's previous relationships

Pete has been linked to several glamorous women in the past, including model Kaia Gerber and Kate Beckinsale, and had been engaged to Ariana Grande. Most recently, he was in a relationship with Bridgerton’s Phoebe Dyvenor.

On her end, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have of course gone their separate ways after eight of marriage. (The Kim Kardashian name change, of course, broke the internet.) 

Kardashian was previously married to Kris Humphries, and long before that, Damon Thomas. She was also in a serious relationship with former American football player Reggie Bush, and has also been linked to football coach Miles Austin and singer Ray J.
