The Kardashians Reveals How Kim K Made The First Move With Pete Davidson
“I wasn’t even thinking, ‘OMG, I’m gonna be in a relationship with him’ ... I was just basically DTF.”
On the June 2 episode of Hulu’s The Kardashians, Kim Kardashian finally explained how she started dating Pete Davidson. “OK, you guys have stalked me long enough,” she told viewers in a confessional. “I’ll finally answer you. So this is how it went down with Pete.” Of course, it all started with her Saturday Night Live hosting stint in October 2021, when she and Pete locked lips in a sketch (as Jasmine and Aladdin). However, she had to make the first move afterward.
“I did SNL and when we kissed in scene, it was just a vibe, and I was like, ‘Oh sh*t, maybe I just need to try something different,’” she explained. “But Pete does not come to my afterparty. Everyone was at my afterparty. He does not give me the time of day.” A few days later, she decided to go for it anyway and asked an SNL producer for Pete’s number, simply hoping for a good time. “I wasn’t even thinking, ‘Oh my god, I’m gonna be in a relationship with him,’” she admitted. “I was just thinking, ‘Heard about this BDE, need to get out there.’ I was just basically DTF.”
When asked why she was hiding her relationship with Pete from the world, Kim said she was worried about taking it too fast. “I wanted to really make sure and not just be like, ‘Oh my god, I met someone and I’m having fun,’ and then just start talking about it on a show,” she said. “Then if we weren’t talking months later, I’d be an idiot. Or a whore. Either one.”
Now, Kim isn’t at all hesitant to gush about her beau publicly, calling Pete “literally the best human being I’ve ever met” and providing a whole list of reasons to prove it. “People always say like, ‘Oh he’s so funny’ ... That’s like, fourth on my list of why I like him,” she said. “He always wants the best for people, can handle anything, always does it with grace. He’s really, really thoughtful and humble and just so genuine. I would say the perfect word to describe Pete is genuine.”
Speaking to her sisters Kourtney and Khloé Kardashian, Kim said that her relationship with Pete was normal, not a “hysterical comedy show at all times” like people think. “I never knew you could just be so happy watching TV series and going to the gym,” she said, before shadily adding, “From someone that I never thought would ever go to the gym or had been to the gym before.”
They also share an obsession with skincare, to the point where they’ll help each other’s pimple needs. “I fell asleep at 8:30, I was so tired, and I woke up in the morning with dried pimple medicine on my nose,” she recalled. “He put it on for me in my sleep because he knew that I really needed it to go away, and I was like, ‘Ah!’”
