After filing for divorce from Kanye West in January 2021, Kim Kardashian stayed away from the dating pool. Instead, she had to deal with waves of drama from her estranged husband. In October of that year, that changed. Kim was set to host SNL for the first time, a monumental career accomplishment for her. During a skit, Kim and Pete, a member of the SNL cast at the time, locked lips. As far as fans know, this was her first kiss since splitting up with Kanye. After the performance, social media went wild with theories that Kim and Pete could be the new couple. Come the new year, by March, Kim did the most official thing she could and posted Pete on her Instagram. The couple went all in after finally going official. Pete got tattoos in honor of Kim and met her kids, and Kim showed him off on red carpets, including The Met Gala. Fans adopted the name "Kete" for the couple and went all in supporting them, some thinking Pete could be “the one” for Kim.
Kim and Pete's relationship status is a shock to viewers as sources close to the couple confirm to E! News that they have called it quits. Pete has been filming a new movie project in Australia for the summer while Kim is still running her family in California. An insider with knowledge of the relationship shared with E! News that this played a massive role in the breakup, confirming the couple still has "a lot of love and respect for each other." They also revealed that having demanding schedules combined with the distance "made it really difficult to maintain a relationship."
This week, rumors were flying online that Kanye could be attempting to reconcile with Kim once again. This narrative became even more enhanced after Kim posted about YEEZY, Kanye’s clothing brand. Another insider shared with E! News about where Kanye and Kim stand, stating, "The divorce is moving ahead with Kanye." As for how the couple is getting along besides working through divorce details, the insider shared, "They are happily co-parenting."
The Kardashians fans still have a new season to come where Kim and Pete will be featured a lot. As they watch these episodes, fans will hope Kete is the couple that will get back together. As many viewers have said on social media, Kim has never looked as happy as she does with Pete. Kim is known for being a major family woman who loves spending time with her family and children. The distance with Pete filming a world away makes him being around for this family time impossible. Movies do not film forever. Hopefully, when Pete is back in town, he and Kim can find a way to make their reconciliation happen.
