Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson Break Up After 9 Months of Dating

According to sources close to the couple, the Kardashian star and Pete Davidson have broken up and decided to remain friends.

According to the experts, while the couple has "a lot of love and respect for each other," the long distance and their demanding schedules "made it really difficult to maintain a relationship." The breakup happened this week.

Pete spent part of the summer in Australia working on the film Wizards! Kim is still raising four children with her ex-husband Kanye West: North, Psalm, Chicago, and Saint. "The divorce with Kanye is proceeding," another insider told E! News. "They are co-parenting happily."

Pete and Kim started dating in November, according to a source. The insider noted at the time that both sides are excited to see where it leads. "Pete has informed her he doesn't want to see anybody else," according to the insider. "She tells some people that they aren't serious, but she isn't seeing anybody else... She's trying not to make a big deal out of it, but she's madly in love with him."

When Kim hosted Saturday Night Live in October, the two first kissed, and their romance blossomed in the months that followed.

"It was a stage kiss, but it still had a little zing," Kim recalled in April on the Not Skinny But Not Fat podcast. "It wasn't anything out of the ordinary."

"A few days later, I was like, 'Hmm, there's some BDE activity," she explained, before recalling Pete's absence from her SNL after-party. "Later on, I considered it. 'Damn, he's the only one who didn't show up,' I thought."

After they made their relationship public, he spent time with her children and even appeared briefly on her Hulu show The Kardashians. According to a teaser, Pete is likely to feature in the second season, which will premiere this autumn.

From tattoo tributes to a joint appearance at the Met Gala, the pair hasn't been shy about showing off their affection during the last nine months. In June, Kim's sister Khloe Kardashian went so far as to claim she was in "LOOOOOOVVEEEE" with the comedian.

Pete stated on Hart to Hart last month that having children is his "goal." "That's sort of what I'm just prepping for right now," he said, "is trying to be as good as a man and evolve and get better, so when that occurs, it's just easy."

A source recently described how the pair were attempting to make long-distance work while Pete was filming in Australia. "They are always communicating even while they are away," a source added. "Kim adores the fact that he is constantly making her laugh, and he definitely brightens her day when they chat."
