Ever since their romance became known to the public, all eyes were on them for almost a year! Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson seemed truly in love and like they couldn’t get enough of each other.
But just a few days ago, the heartbreaking news was revealed: they had broken up. But what went wrong? Was Pete just a rebound after Kanye, or is it deeper than that? And how are they handling the breakup? Have either of them moved on?
Pete and Kim’s breakup has hit many people like a ton of bricks, from the people who loved their dynamic together to each other’s individual fans.
It seems like the two former lovers are going through a rough time as well. But people have been wondering this: which of the two is handling it the worst? In other words, who of them initiated the breakup?
Sources have declared that Kim is “very sad” and that it “has been hard” for her. That’s understandable, especially when you remember how smitten she seemed to be for the comedian just a few months ago.
However, recent information hints that Pete is the one having a harder time coming to terms with the end of his romance with Kim. And we’re talking about a really, really hard time.
Apparently, Davidson is undergoing trauma therapy following the breakup. This could be a sign that the relationship meant way more for him than what it might have meant for Kim.
However, there seems to be a further reason why the SNL star is so affected by the events that have been taking place for the last few months.
Some sources suggest that there is another reason why Pete would need to recover from trauma. There has been something causing him a great deal of stress and anguish ever since he started dating Kim.
The man behind it would be someone whose name has been, for better or worse, constantly associated with the couple during the last months.
Allegedly, the real reason why Pete Davidson is currently undergoing trauma therapy is Kanye West’s constant intrusion into his relationship with Kim.
This might be surprising for some; after all, Pete was known for being quite open about Kanye’s “beef” with him and even seemed to make a joke out of it sometimes. However, it seems like things have been a lot more serious than anyone could have guessed.
We all know about Kanye’s recurrent Instagram posts targeting Pete. He has even threatened him in the lyrics of a recent song featuring The Game, a rapper from Los Angeles who claims to have been connected to a gang.
Kanye’s obsessive behavior could be rightfully considered harassment, and it’s not surprising that it has affected Pete. But how serious is it?
Apparently, Pete has just been trying to make light of the issue in order to avoid getting caught up in that type of drama.
“Pete is trying to make out like he finds Kanye’s pranks hilarious, but nobody really believes him,” an insider told the media some time ago. “He actually feels sorry for the guy, but at the same time, he just wishes he could be left alone.”
Many of you will probably be shocked by this. It was hard to tell that Kanye’s behavior was impacting Pete’s life and mental health like that.
Understandably, Kanye’s behavior has been a source of stress for Pete. But it seems like there might be a further reason for why he’s undergoing trauma therapy at the moment.
It seems like Davidson is truly gutted by the end of his relationship with Kim. But apparently, neither he nor the fashion mogul have been taken by surprise. It was something that both of them could see coming.
“Pete knew it wasn’t going to work,” an insider told the media recently. “He’d been saying it for a while. And Kim knew it, too.” And this leads us to the really big question about the story.
Why were they anticipating the breakup? Why has it been so sudden, especially considering how smitten with each other the two seemed to be over the last few months?
Was it all, as some have suggested, a ready-made relationship designed as a ploy to attract media attention or “clout”? Some have suggested something even more sinister than that.
Some have suggested that the whole relationship might have started out of one specific whim by Kim; some have said that because of this whim, Pete was chosen, used, and then discarded by the fashion mogul.
These rumors say that Kim was only using Pete to make Kanye jealous all along. But is it true? Is she really that cunning?
This type of rumor might be on the extreme end of gossip. After all, there seemed to be genuine affection between the two; in all their pictures and footage together, they seem truly enamored with each other.
This still holds even if, as the sources tell, they saw the breakup coming. But why was that? What went wrong?
Maybe Pete and Kim knew what was going to happen. But for the rest of the world, the news has taken many people by surprise. We have all been left wondering what exactly went wrong between the pair.
Many suggest that there might be one particular event that served as a catalyst for the breakup and shattered their relationship into pieces.
Apparently, the crux of the question would be Kim’s recent trip to Australia. Recently, just a few days before their breakup, she traveled there to visit Pete while he had some days off from filming Wizards.
It seems like something happened during Kim’s days in Australia, or there was something she saw there that might be crucial in order to understand the couple’s breakup. But what was it?
One thing is known for sure: Kim didn’t post any pictures or videos of her trip to Australia on her social media. And apparently, that’s not all.
During the whole trip, the couple was extremely secretive. This contrasts heavily with their previous behavior and their tendency to go viral every chance they got. Reading about how they acted during their time in Australia, one could just feel that there was already something wrong.
“This is the 1% of the time she doesn’t want to have to worry about getting glammed up and just wants to switch off,” an anonymous insider told the media.
Apparently, Kim did everything in her power to avoid being seen by the media, which seems like something extremely off-character coming from the fashion mogul. But why was that?
But why could that be? Why didn’t they want to be seen by the media? Perhaps they had something to hide? Were Pete and Kim arguing during their time in Australia?
Or was it just that they knew it was going to be their last time together, and they wanted to be alone and finish their relationship on a high note?
“She’s just here to spend time with Pete and has no plans on leaving the hotel. It’s a very low-key trip, and she doesn’t want to be bothered.”
“Kim is happy to say ‘hi’ to you if you bump into her, but she definitely doesn’t want to get her photograph taken on this trip.” And apparently, that’s not all.
The hotel staff members were also ordered not to ask Pete or Kim for selfies and not to post anything to their social media accounts.
Every time Kim left the hotel, she used decoy cars to avoid being seen. She would also enter and exit through the hotel’s back door, not accessible to resort guests. But why all the secrecy? What was going on? What were they trying to hide?
Some say that this secrecy and search for clandestinity may have been a sign of problems in paradise, especially considering the couple’s previous behavior regarding the media and attention from the public.
Others suggest that the trip may have been a last-ditch effort to save a relationship that was already on its way out. But what were the real reasons for the breakup?
Apparently, one of the most important reasons may have been Pete’s “immaturity and young age”, according to an insider. “Pete is 28 and Kim is 41 — they are just in very different places at the moment,” the source adds.
“Pete is totally spontaneous and impulsive and wants her to fly to New York or wherever he is on a moment’s notice. But Kim has four kids, and it isn’t that easy. She needs to focus on the kids.” But it seems like that’s not all there is to it.
Some may think that there are reasons to believe that Kim was never that serious about Pete in the first place. Admittedly, she didn’t seriously entertain the possibility of a real relationship when they first met.
“I wasn’t even thinking, ‘Oh my god, I’m gonna be in a relationship with him.’ I was just thinking like, ‘heard about this BDE, need to get out there.’ I was just basically DTF.” So is that it? Was Davidson just a rebound meant to be a fun time, not a long time?
If that is so, it seems like it might have taken him off guard. “Pete is still super bummed, though, about the breakup,” says an insider. “They really hit it off and had a ton of fun together, but it feels like it ran its course.”
But is that necessarily a bad thing? Why is Pete so bummed right now if that is all there was to it?
After all, that’s what happens to a lot of relationships, and it doesn’t need to be something to be upset about. As long as the two of them get out of the relationship with good memories together, that’s all that matters.
But to be honest, they made a great couple together. Many people are wondering if there is any chance of them getting back together in the future. This is what they have said about it:
Reconciliation doesn’t seem very likely. “It was an amicable split. They had discussed ending their relationship for a bit. It wasn’t sudden,” explains an insider source.
“And it was a mutual decision. Getting back together is not in the cards right now.” Ah, well. What are you gonna do? But this leads us to the following question: what’s next?
Are any of the two former sweethearts dating someone else at the moment? Have they been able to move on that fast?
Kim has recently been asked about this issue, and she has given a few hints about what’s going on in her dating life at the moment. This is what she said when prompted about it:
Recently, Kelly Rippa and Ryan Seacrest, from “Live With Kelly And Ryan,” asked the superstar who she sees herself dating next. Everyone was surprised by what Kim replied.
“Absolutely no one,” she said. “I’m not looking for anything,” she reiterated. “I think I really just need to be by myself and focus and finish school and focus on my kids.” However, it seems like she has been receiving several tempting offers from very illustrious characters.
“You know what I did say before? Maybe I should try to date a doctor or a scientist or something, so a bunch of attorneys and scientists and doctors all reached out. I’m just not ready,” the influencer said.
Will we see Kim stepping back from show business when it comes to her dating life in the near future? Will she date a white-collar professional next? This is the original quote she references above:
“Clearly, it’s not working, whatever I’m doing. So I don’t know. Maybe, like, a hospital and meet a doctor. A law firm. I think it’s gonna be, like, scientist, neuroscientist, biochemist, doctor, attorney. That’s maybe what I envision in the future.”
As far as Pete Davidson, not much is known about his dating life nowadays. But who knows what the future might look like?
