Kim Kardashian Admits Dating Pete Davidson Was Kind of a Weird Move For Her

On Thursday’s episode of The Kardashians, Kim Kardashian revealed that she used Pete Davidson for his BDE—Big Divorce (Emotional Recovery) Energy, and that it was an unhealthy coping strategy. In a conversation with sisters Kylie and Kendall Jenner, she said that she “jumped into another relationship so fast” after separating from husband Kanye West.

“It got my mind away from stuff and that’s not a way to run from things,” she said, advising her sisters that “it’s better to deal. Heal…Deal, heal, and then feel.”

Kardashian filed for divorce from West in early 2021 and finalized the process in November 2022. The former couple wed in 2014 and have four children together.

Kardashian and Davidson dated for nine months, first meeting at the 2021 Met Gala ahead of Kardashian’s Saturday Night Live hosting gig, and then making their red carpet debut as a capital-c Couple in April 2022 at the premiere of The Kardashians. That same month, Kim said in an interview that she was “a relationship kind of girl, for sure,” and said that she was “at peace.”

In the same interview, where she discussed the multiple Tattoos and planned branding (he had her first name scarred onto his body) that Davidson had undergone during their then-five-month-old relationship, she said, “obviously, I wanna take my time.”

Kardashian and Davidson called it quits in August 2022 after nine months of dating. Judging from them being spotted chatting at this year’s Met Gala, things seem to be okay between the exes. For his part, Kanye celebrated the end of the Kardavidson era by posting a doctored New York Times-style headline declaring Davidson dead.

It is unclear how or whether Davidson’s January 2022 joint purchase of a decommissioned Staten Island ferry with Colin Jost (Davidson was “very stoned,” Jost sheepishly “stone-cold sober”) factors into his post-relationship emotional processing journey.

Vanity Fair has reached out to Kardashian for comment.
