AceShowbiz - While Pete Davidson's romance with ex Kim Kardashian started on "Saturday Night Live", the comedian reportedly won't joke about the reality TV star when he hosts the upcoming episode of the series. A source reveals that Pete chooses to be "a gentleman."
The insider reveals to Page Six that after splitting, "The King of Staten Island" actor and "The Kardashians" star agreed to just "drop everything" and "move on." The source adds, "That's why she's not mentioned in his stand-up."
"[He's respecting the fact] her team is so protective of her image and it was so volatile from [Kanye West]'s side," the source continues. It is also said that instead of making jokes about his brief romance with the SKIMS founder, Pete is expected to be "a good sport" about quips regarding his high-profile love life.
However, another source claims that Pete may include a Kim gag or two during his first appearance on "SNL" following his exit in 2022. "Nothing has been written yet, but know with Pete nothing is off the table," the source claims.
In the May 6 episode, Pete is also expected to promote his new series "Bupkis". The comedy show, which Pete writes, produces and stars on, is described as a fictionalized version of his life growing up on Staten Island. In addition to starring Joe Pesci as his grandfather and Edie Falco as his mother, some celebrities, including Pete's girlfriend Chase Sui Wonders, are set to make guest star appearance.
Meanwhile, Pete and Kim were first romantically linked in October 2021, shortly after they shared a kiss in an "SNL" skit when Kim made her hosting debut on the show. However, their relationship only lasted for 9 months as they called it quits in August 2022.
Kim's ex Kanye might be one of the reasons for their split. While dating the KKW Beauty founder, the "Donda" artist repeatedly taunted the comedian as he released a video for his track "Eazy" that had him kidnapping and burying a cartoon version of Pete. Not stopping there, the Yeezy designer rapped about "beating Pete Davidson's a**" and posted a fake New York Times front page with a headline that read, "SKETE DAVIDSON DEAD AT AGE 28."
