Internet darling Pete Davidson has confirmed that he is dating reality television star and social media darling Kim Kardashian West. “Kim & I are dating and it’s going great,” Davidson said on late night Monday night. “Everyone calm down. It’s just a casual relationship. We’re taking it slow and having fun.”

Davidson didn’t say whether or not he and Kardashian are seeing each other through any means other than dating or “casual.” The New York Daily News spoke to a friend of Kardashian West and Davidson’s who revealed that they aren’t “serious” about their relationship. The friend said, “She’s in an awesome place at the moment and excited to move on,” the friend said. “He came to see her in L.A. recently and they hung out over the weekend, but she wasn’t on her phone much.” The Daily News also noted that Kardashian West and Davidson “shopped at the Strand Bookstore on Saturday.”
Kardashian West and Kanye West have been at the center of tabloid speculation in recent months, after a series of reported fights and a failed reconciliation. The pair were first rumored to be dating in April after Kardashian West and Davidson co-starred on her reality show in March. They were then spotted holding hands in June.
Kardashian West and her older sister Khloe have had a tumultuous few years, with Lamar Odom’s 2016 overdose and struggles with addiction leading to their family being forced to deal with one another and separate their children for time. Shortly after, Kardashian West filed for divorce from her husband of two years. However, she called it off after Odom’s addition to a hospital bed caused an anxiety attack. Odom’s health has since improved to the point where he had a kidney transplant in September. The couple have no children.
It appears to be much the same for Davidson, who has known Kardashian West for a while. Davidson and Kardashian West began to date in June but opted to keep the romance private until September, when rumors began to surface.
