Kim Kardashian all but confirmed her romance with Pete Davidson on Thursday’s episode of Honestly With Bari Weiss.
When asked to name her favorite Saturday Night Live cast member, the 41-year-old reality star chuckled and playfully called the question a ‘setup.’
‘What a setup, what a setup, Bari,’ the mother-of-four, who has been seen on a number of dates with Davidson, 28, mused. ‘You know who it is.’
Despite dodging the question, the KKW Beauty has been smitten with the comedian since filing for divorce from estranged husband Kanye West.
‘He makes her feel good and she’s excited to see what happens,’ a source told US Weekly.
Her friends are ‘eager for Kim to have fun and be free’ after she filed for divorce from her husband of nearly seven years in February. The couple has four children together: North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm.
Kim is ‘always’ left ‘smiling and excited’ after hanging out with Davidson, who ‘makes her laugh,’ the source revealed.
Eyebrows were first raised when the two kissed during an early October SNL skit when she played Princess Jasmine and he portrayed Aladdin, and while People claimed they are just friends, fans think something more may be brewing.
Weeks later, she was spotted at Knott’s Berry Farm in Buena Park, California for the theme park’s annual Halloween event with a group of friends, including Pete, her sister Kourtney and Kourtney’s new fiance, Travis Barker.
Pete and Kim reportedly enjoyed a private rooftop dinner at Campania in Staten Island last week, followed by a group outing at club Zero Bond the following night.
Sources told TMZ the pair appeared ‘very comfortable’ with one another during their dates in New York City this week where they ‘displayed plenty of PDA’.
Another source added: ‘Nobody else in the venue saw [Kim and Pete] as her security stood outside the private room ‘the entire time.’
‘She was happy and smiley,’ an insider said, and while Kim exited through the front of Zero Bond, Pete opted to go through a back door.
And a source close to Kim exclusively told DailyMail.com Pete is ‘very aggressive’ with her as he often ‘grabs her waist, compliments her butt and touches her hair’ when they are together.
‘He is extremely sexual and in her face. He is making it crystal clear he likes her,’ the confidant said. ‘He definitely is not being aloof or playing coy, he is just going for it. And she seems to be loving the attention. It’s nice to see her happy.’
Pete — whose exes also include Kate Beckinsale and Kaia Gerber — made light of the dating rumors while promoting his new show, The Freak Brothers, on Late Night with Seth Meyers last month.
‘I want to address something. I feel like I want to confirm if it’s real,’ Seth said, referring to his various sightings with Kim.
Cutting in, Pete joked: ‘There’s a lot of people I walk by, people are like whispering, and, you know, making eyes at me. And, you know, but it is true. I do have a show on Tubi coming out.’
ete joined the cast of SNL in the 40th season at the age of 20 as one of the youngest cast members, and has since earned a spot on the Forbes 30 Under 30 list in addition to a host of movie and television roles and accolades.
Meanwhile, Kim launched SKIMS in 2019 and was included in Forbes magazine’s World’s Billionaires list for the first time this year, which cites her businesses, KKW Beauty and SKIMS, as well as cash from reality TV and endorsement deals for her vast wealth.
Kim’s worth increased from $780 million last October to $1 billion after she cashed in on KKW Beauty by selling 20 percent of the business to Coty for $200 million.
