The reality star recently reflected on her former relationship with Pete Davidson in the months after filing for divorce from the rapper and noted that, in retrospect, she hadn’t actually been ready to get back in the dating game.
“I definitely jumped into another relationship so fast,” Kim told her sisters Kylie Jenner and Kendall Jenner during the July 20 episode of The Kardashians. “It got my mind away from stuff, and that’s not a way to run from things. It’s better to deal, heal—that’s a good one—deal, heal, feel.”
The SKIMS founder filed for divorce from Kanye in February 2021 after nearly seven years of marriage. She then started dating Pete after she hosted Saturday Night Live that October and they formed a connection.
Still, it wasn’t an easy time. While Kim was in a relationship with Pete, Kanye targeted him on social media and in his music. The Grammy winner also posted what appeared to be screenshots of his own texts with her online, including her pleas for him to stop calling out the Bupkis star.
Kim and Pete split last August after nine months together. And while Kanye later apologized for “any stress” that he caused her during that time, it didn’t end there. He later received backlash for antisemitic comments that he made.
