It seems like Pete Davidson and Kim Kardashian are officially dating and celebrity couples don’t get much weirder than this.
It comes after the pair enjoyed several very public dates in New York City and Los Angeles. They were first spotted together holding hands on a log flume at Knott’s Scary Farm on October 29th.
That was shortly after Kim K’s controversial appearance as host on SNL, in which she shared an awkward kiss with Davidson in an Aladdin-based sketch.
Several more high profile dates then followed. “They were smiling and laughing a lot and seemed genuinely affectionate with each other,” an insider told Page Six recently. Kim even brought the comedian as her plus one to Simon Huck’s birthday party.
They were most recently together this week as Davidson travelled to California for his birthday: he was pictured with Kim, Kim’s mum Kris Jenner, and Public Enemy’s Flavor Flav, which is such a strange group of people to be in the same room as each other.
Page Six says that representatives for the new couple haven’t yet answered requests for comment.

Maybe we shouldn’t be that surprised at Pete Davidson and Kim Kardashian being a thing, as Conan O’Brien pointed out. The talk show host insisted that SNL alumni have always landed beautiful women – considering Weekend Update’s Colin Jost somehow landed Scarlett Johannson, he’s probably onto something.
I wonder what Kanye thinks about this new power couple. Davidson has hung out with the rapper in the past, including an infamous night when he got stuck with an expensive dinner bill. Will Ye feel betrayed now?
What do Kim K and The King of Staten Island have in common? What do people like Kim, Ariana Grande, and Kate Beckinsale know that we don’t know? So many important questions.
