Kim & Pete: CRAZY ROMANCE!
Star|November 22, 2021
HOLLYWOOD’S SEXIEST MAN? THINGS BETWEEN UNLIKELY COUPLE PETE DAVIDSON AND KIM KARDASHIAN ARE GETTING HOTTER BY THE DAY.

THE chemistry was off the charts. During Kim Kardashian’s Oct. 9 appearance on Saturday Night Live, the curvy reality star only had eyes for one cast member: series regular Pete Davidson. “She was shy and giggly around him,” a SNL insider tells Star. “Pete was really making her laugh and there was obviously a connection between them.” According to the on-set spy, sparks really got flying at the show’s afterparty. “They spent a lot of time together. At one point, they were looking at their phones and it seemed like Kim was giving Pete her number.”

Things moved quickly from there. On Oct. 29, Kim, 41, and the 27-year-old funnyman — known for dating a string of Hollywood beauties, including Ariana Grande and Kaia Gerber — were spotted holding hands on a roller coaster at Knott’s Scary Farm in L.A. Days later, they hit up Campania restaurant in Pete’s native Staten Island for an intimate dinner and stepped out again at NYC’s Zero Bond Nov. 3. “Kim has known Pete for a while, they share the same group of friends,” reveals a source, who says they reconnected after she filed for divorce from rapper Kanye West in March. “They’ve been in constant contact since SNL. She can’t stop thinking about him and he’s infatuated with her. The romance,” the source adds, “is blossoming.”

STEAMY DATES

It was Kim who made the first move. “They had exchanged a bunch of flirty texts and FaceTime calls,” the source reveals, “then Kim built up the courage to invite Pete to Knott’s Scary Farm to get to know him on a more personal level.” The source says Kim’s sister Kourtney — who got engaged to Blink-182 rocker Travis Barker on Oct. 17 — suggested they make it a group outing to ease the pressure. “Pete jumped at the chance,” says the source. Things went so well, the source reveals Kim and Pete ended up at a hotel together that night. “With the adrenaline rush from the rides and being around each other they were definitely on a high.”
