Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson: A timeline of their relationship
It’s been a wild few months for Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson. Hot off the heels of her sister, Kourtney, getting engaged to Travis Barker in October last year, Kim and Pete were spotted on some of their first “dates”.
After meeting - and sharing a kiss - on the set of Saturday Night Live in October, the pair have been spotted together several times, including at an amusement park, in the car, and they’ve also been pictured holidaying together in the Bahamas.
Now, the pair appear to have made things official, after Davidson referred to Kardashian as his “girlfriend” publicly for the first time.
It’s not the first high-profile relationship for either of them. Kardashian, 41, married Kanye West in May 2014 but filed for divorce in February last year.
Davidson, 28, has also had a spate of well-publicised relationships, having been engaged to Ariana Grande for a few months in 2018, as well as being seen with Kate Beckinsale, Kaia Gerber, Margaret Qualley and, most recently, with Bridgerton star Phoebe Dynevor.
So what exactly has transpired in the Kardashian-Davidson love fest so far? Read on for a timeline of the pair’s relationship.
