Finally, Pete Davidson Called Kim Kardashian His “Girlfriend”
He's also got a Kim K prayer candle.
Pete Davidson has officially called Kim Kardashian his “girlfriend” for the first time in public since the two reportedly began dating in October of last year. The Saturday Night Live star confirmed he and Kardashian are an item while opening up about his personal life during a Feb. 7 interview with People.
“I don't have Instagram or Twitter or any of that stuff. So, most of my daily life is getting into cars and showing up to a set,” the comedian said on People (The TV Show) about life in the spotlight. "Or, if I'm off, I just either hang with my friends or chill with my girlfriend inside,” Davidson added, referring to Kardashian.
That wasn’t the only time she came up in the interview. When host Kay Adams asked if Davidson had a candle with Kardashian’s face on it sitting on a table behind him during their interview, he hilariously responded, “Yes, yes, it is. That is, uh, that is exactly what that is.” The star also admitted this is “the first year” that he’s really thinking about making Valentine’s Day plans.
This “girlfriend” confirmation comes after months of a high-profile bourgeoning relationship. Rumors he and Kardashian got together began after around the time they were seen holding hands while riding a rollercoaster on Oct. 29. This came weeks after Kardashian and Davidson kissed on an Oct. 7 episode of SNL. The couple then were spotted together at Knott's Berry Farm with Kourtney Kardashian and her fiancé Travis Barker.
Prior to Davidson’s Feb. 7 appearance on PEOPLE (The TV Show!), neither he nor Kardashian had publicly put a label on their relationship. This relationship status update comes after they’ve been spotted on multiple dates over the past few months and even reportedly vacationed together to the Bahamas on Jan. 3.
Following their romantic getaway, reports came out that the couple is getting “very serious” with each other. "He has been hanging out at her house more,” a source reportedly told E! News on Jan. 5. “She's smitten and the relationship is very exciting to her.”
The source continued to E! News that Kardashian and Davidson are trying their best to make “the distance work,” considering they’re on opposite sides of the country. Kardashian lives in California, while Davidson lives in New York. “He's planning to be in L.A. more often now,” the source apparently said.
Kardashian and Davidson definitely seem to be head over heels for each other, especially now that they’ve put a label on their relationship.
