Kim Kardashian Reflects on 'Heartbreaking' Split from Pete Davidson and Anxiety About Future Romance
During the Season 3 opener of "The Kardashians," Kim Kardashian revealed her emotional struggle following her break-up with comedian Pete Davidson. The reality TV star and entrepreneur confessed to her current single status and her reluctance to plunge back into the dating scene, as reported by E! News.
Scott Disick, Kardashian's close confidant, inquired about her sentiments post-split - her first significant separation after parting ways with former spouse Kanye West. Kardashian expressed her aversion to break-ups, stating, "Breakups are just not my thing...I'm proud of myself...We just had talks and talks, we had been talking about it. So it was both of us just communicating really well about it. It's obviously sad."
The SKIMS founder also admitted her preference for committed relationships over casual encounters. She and Davidson, who shared a nine-month-long romance, separated in August last year.
Kardashian alluded to the controversy stirred up by West concerning her relationship with Davidson, sharing her remorse about the fallout Davidson endured. "There was a lot of guilt...He went through a lot because of my relationship," she said.
Kardashian's marriage to West, with whom she shares four children - North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm - ended in divorce last November, after seven years. She began seeing Davidson shortly after her guest appearance on "SNL."
Throughout their relationship, West had unleashed a torrent of online criticism towards Davidson, even featuring an animated version of him being abducted and buried alive in a music video.
According to an anonymous source cited by People, Davidson sought mental health support, in large part, due to the distressing fallout from West's provocative posts. The source revealed, "The attention and negativity coming from Kanye and his antics is a trigger for [Pete], and he's had to seek out help."
However, Davidson expressed no remorse about his relationship with Kardashian, emphasizing her unwavering support during their time together.
An unnamed source reported to Page Six that the couple mutually decided to remain friends, citing the strain of long-distance and demanding schedules.
Davidson has since found new companionship with his "Bodies Bodies Bodies" co-star, Chase Sui Wonders. In contrast, Kardashian expressed concerns about her future romantic prospects. She confessed, "I go back and forth in my feelings sometimes like, 'Uh, who's ever gonna wanna date me? I have four kids, I'm in my 40s, you know? Like, oh my god, who's gonna wanna deal with the drama?'" She added, however, that she believes the right person will be willing to face those challenges alongside her.
