When did they start dating?

Kardashian, 41, confirmed their relationship in March in a post on Instagram, shortly after she was declared legally single after filing for divorce from rapper Kanye West.

Did Pete Davidson feature in The Kardashians?

Details of the romance were shared in the Disney+ series The Kardashians, which concluded in June.

Although Davidson did not physically feature in the first series of the new show, viewers will found out how the couple met among other intimate details.

How did Kanye West react to the relationship?

Kim Kardashian married rap superstar Kanye West in 2014.

The couple split in 2021 and the divorce was finalised in 2022.

The relationship has caused tension with West, who made a string of online attacks against Davidson and released a song including the lyrics “God saved me from that crash, just so I can beat Pete Davidson’s ass”.

Kardashian filed for divorce from West in February 2021, and was declared legally single earlier in 2022.

The couple had married in 2014 and share four children: North, eight, Saint, six, Chicago, four, and Psalm, two.

Who is Pete Davidson?

Pete Davidson, 28, is a comedian and actor.

He is best known for his time on Saturday Night Live.

Davidson joined the cast in 2014 and has appeared in eight seasons. His own personality often outshone the characters he played.

His comic commentaries as himself on “Weekend Update” were often his most viral moments.

And he was as well-known for his life offscreen – dating Ariana Grande and then Kim Kardashian – as on.

It was announced earlier this year that he would be departing from Saturday Night Live.

“I never imagined this would be my life,” Davidson said during the show.

“I appreciate SNL for always having my back, for allowing me to work on myself and grow. Thank you to Lorne for never giving up on me or judging me even when everyone else was, for believing in me and allowing me to have a place I could call home with the memories that will last a lifetime. Thank you.”

He also appeared in the 2021 movie Suicide Squad and features in summer horror movie Bodies, Bodies, Bodies which was released recently in the United States.
