Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson have broken up after nine Instagram-perfect months together – or so E! News sources say – and social media had a field day Friday making pretty much the same joke about Kanye West rushing to his ex-wife’s side faster than you can say “Ye.”

According to E!, the lovebirds have decided to just be friends because of their busy schedules and Kardashian being a West coaster and Davidson an East coast kinda guy “made it really difficult to maintain a relationship.” Davidson has spent a large chunk of the summer in Australia filming “Wizards!” while Kardashian has remained in Los Angeles, raising her four children with West.

Reps for Kardashian and Davidson didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.

But don’t rush to assume the Pete-Kim breakup means she’s getting back together with Yeezy. “The divorce is moving ahead with Kanye,” another insider shares with E! News. “They are happily co-parenting.” 

Social media went berserk over the news, with one person tweeting, “Kanye outside Kim Kardashian house after Pete Davidson left her,” with a clip from “Regular Show,” (which was, in turn inspired by the iconic “take me back” boombox scene in “Say Anything”).

Others joked that if Kanye isn’t outside Kardashian’s house right now, he’s probably out there celebrating like he just won the Super Bowl. The rapper’s public pleas on social media for Kardashian to come back to him and his not-so-veiled death threats against Davidson actually got him temporarily banned from Instagram earlier this year.

Dominique Jackson suggested that Davidson has been left crying like Will in “Stranger Things” over his unrequited love for Mike. Another person tweeted that Davidson must regret getting that tattoo to pay homage to Kardashian’s four kids, while his tattoo removal guy “just put a down payment on another boat.”


Or was the whole relationship simply a sociological study conducted by Columbia University, another person wondered?

The reality TV star and the former “SNL” regular began dating after she hosted “Saturday Night Live” in October 2021.
