A source has confirmed that Kim Kardashian’s recent trip to Australia was a PR stunt in order to create more ~*kontent*~ for The Kardashians.

The unnamed source told gossip publication Deuxmoi that Kardashian only headed down under to see her ex Pete Davidson as part of a storyline for the family’s Hulu show.

“[The trip] was assumed to reignite their feelings and get some sexy moments between the two but it was obvious to everyone there’s only tension,” the tip-off told Deuxmoi.

The same publication reported that the season two trailer for The Kardashians ignited tension between the former couple. A clip from the trailer went viral that shows Davidson throwing down his phone and a packet of cigarettes in excitement after Kardashian asks him “Babe? Do you want to shower with me really quick?”

“The final straw was his appearance in the season two trailer which he didn’t expect to get used again and again,” they said.

Deuxmoi reported that the viral clip “makes their romance seem like the centrepiece”, whereas in reality, Davidson wasn’t interested in being involved in the series.

“He refused to be on camera,” the same source said. They added, “People in general don’t seem to realise that he’s actually quite ruthless in relationships and is almost always the one who does the dumping.”
