Pete Davidson mocks Kim Kardashian West romance rumors | Celebrity News

Pete Davidson has laughed off speculation about his relationship with Kim Kardashian West.

The 27-year-old comedian has been spotted with the brunette beauty – who filed for divorce from Kanye West in February – on several occasions since she hosted ‘Saturday Night Live’ last month and he shed light on the rumors in to promote his new television show, ‘The Freak Brothers’.

During an appearance on ‘Late Night With Seth Meyers’ on Monday (08.11.21), the host apparently referenced Pete and Kim’s budding romance, saying: “I want to address something. I have the feeling like you want to confirm if it’s real or a rumor. It’s something you’ve heard a lot about in the press… We appreciate you doing that here.

Pete interrupted Seth and joked, “There’s a lot of people I’m walking past, people are like whispering and, you know, making sweet eyes at me. And, you know, but it’s true.. . I have a show on Tubi coming out.”

The ‘King of Staten Island’ star also revealed he was inundated with requests for ‘SNL’ tickets after it was revealed that Taylor Swift would be the next musical guest – but he won’t help anyone.

He joked, “Yeah, no one leaves me alone on this. I just tell everyone that like… they don’t give me tickets.”

It was previously claimed that Pete and Kim, 41 – who have children North, eight, Saint, five, Chicago, three and Psalm, two with Kanye – are “little more” than friends.

A source said: “Kim and Pete love each other. They try to pretend they’re just friends, but it’s a bit more than that right now. They’re having a lot of fun together.

“Pete makes Kim laugh and makes her feel special. Pete is visibly thrilled and has a crush on Kim.”

Kim and Pete – who split from Phoebe Dynevor in August – have both recently emerged from high-profile romances, and they’ve bonded over their experiences.

A second source said: “Kim and Pete spent time together in Staten Island at one of his favorite places, the Campania restaurant.

“Pete and Kim are having a great time together and having fun. Both of them were recently single and hooked up because of it.”
