Pop Note: Kim and Pete Held Hands
What the hell is going on!?!
Two weeks after their Saturday Night Live onstage skit’n’kiss, Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson were spotted together as part of a group outing with Kim’s sister, Kourtney and fiancé, Travis Barker, and some other family friends. The reality show mogul and the SNL comedian were spotted holding hands on a theme park ride at Knott’s Berry Farm in California on Saturday night. The internet went wild with speculation over the nature of the relationship between Kim and Pete.
One of my readers reached out to me and asked me to do a deep dive into this possible couple alert. I don’t usually cover Kardashian news, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t know every single thing about the fam. My entertainment knowledge is frighteningly vast.
Dear readers, this is all that is officially known about the current status of Kim and Pete: all of the entertainment outlets insist that Kim and Pete are just friends. Pete is friends with Machine Gun Kelly, who is friends with Travis Barker, who is engaged to Kourtney Kardashian. The Kim and Pete combo is being reported as an innocent outing with shared friends.
Excuse me, but I don’t buy it. Has Pete Davidson ever been “just friends” with a gorgeous, accomplished, rich, freshly single and possibly still-grieving-a-past-relationship female celebrity? NO. This is Pete’s specialty. All he has to do is be in the right place at the right time (usually on set at SNL, at an afterparty, or some other NYC gala), stand next to the woman in question, smile that goofy smile, and he’s got them. Before you know it, he and Ariana Grande are getting matching tattoos, or he and Phoebe Dynevor are wearing matching necklaces. Pete Davidson is all or nothing.
I have never understood the Pete Davidson appeal, but today, in the spirit of entertainment reporting, I spent some time thinking about why Kim might be attracted to him. I’m not sure that it was a good use of my brain cells, but it was productive.
Top 5 Reasons Why Kim and Pete Make Sense
Pale, tattooed men suffering from arrested development are the new accessories for hot, successful brunette women (see Kourtney Kardashian and Megan Fox). But seriously, Kim sees Kourtney happy and seemingly carefree with Travis Barker, who shares some similarities with Pete Davidson. After years of being involved with Kanye West, who plans and stages everything, it might be refreshing for Kim to be around someone who seems to be spontaneous and openly fun-loving.
Pete shows a deep interest in women. In a 2020 interview with W Magazine, Pete said, “I cry a lot. I get into deep conversations. I care about, like, your shit. I like to meet your family and know who you are.” This sentiment is a wild aphrodisiac for many heterosexual women but I imagine that someone like Kim, who is just coming out of a relationship with Kanye, arguably one of the most self-involved men on the planet, could really use a man who meets her needs on an emotional level.
Pete acknowledges his mental health issues and tries to stay well. After years of being married to Kanye, who rejected mental health supports, it might be appealing for Kim to be around a man who tries to take care of himself.
Kim loves to rescue people. She is literally pursuing a law degree to fight for the rights of wrongly accused prisoners. For as much as Pete tries to help himself he still gives off major lost-puppy-please-give-me-a-stable-home vibes. Hot.
If all the rumours are true, Pete’s dick is said to be 10 inches long. How do I know this? Because Ariana told me. Ariana as in Grande. She once tweeted a since-deleted tweet claiming that her ex-finacé is hung. She reiterated this in her video, thank u, next (3:27 min in if you care to see the exact moment).
Those are my reasons for Kim’s attraction to Pete, but what does Twitter think? Here are some of the funniest tweets I found:
They are not wrong!
