A source close to the comedian shared their opinion on his new found relationship with the reality star, claiming that the relationship started out humble with Pete being independent, but now he's changed, with Kim and her mum Kris Jenner 'running his life'.

She’s persuaded him to uproot his life in New York to move closer to her place in Calabasas, California, and even suggested that he quit his job on SNL. Everyone knows Kim is one for the savviest characters in the entertainment world, and Pete should seriously consider her suggestions

Earlier this month, it was confirmed that he quit SNL after eight seasons but for unknown reasons, and his friends believe it's so Kim can turn him to a reality star like herself. Pete's reps have dismissed all claims, telling Mirror Online: "There is no truth to this".

Kardashian and Davidson confirmed their rumoured romance March this year, after she posted the first official 'couple' selfies of the two on her Instagram. They allegedly began dating after she hosted SNL in October 2021.

Kim filed for divorce her current husband Kanye West in February 2021 after seven years of marriage citing 'irreconcilable differences' as her reason.

The two have four children together – eight-year-old daughter North, six-year-old son Saint, four-year-old daughter Chicago, and two-year-old son Psalm.
