PETE STILL MATTERS? Kim Kardashian has been 'texting' Pete Davidson amid Kanye West's WLM controversy
Following the announcement of their breakup after eight months of dating, Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson are alleged to have been texting each other amid the recent controversy involving Kim's ex-husband Kanye West, including alleged antisemitic posts and "White Lives Matter."
While a reconciliation between the former couple is unlikely, a source who talked to HollywoodLife claims that Pete has been supporting Kim while she deals with a public coparenting battle with her ex-husband, Kanye West.
"A lot of people have been reaching out to offer Kim support, including Pete [Davidson]," the source said. "He’s in the middle of shooting another movie but he’s been in touch. He’s such a sweet guy and Kim’s grateful they can still be friends."
The source continued, "Pete and Kim still talk on occasion and several weeks after the break up, they had gotten to a place of being cordial with each other. Pete has texted Kim a few times about the whole Kanye situation because he still cares about her as a person and wanted to check in to see how she was doing," according to Stylecaster.
At Paris Fashion Week, Kanye showed his "White Lives Matter" shirt, which drew quick condemnation from celebrities including Gigi Hadid. Kim "is not shocked by Kanye's decision to put it on his shirt and feels that he is, once again, attempting to grab attention," the insider told Hollywood Life.
The rapper has also come under fire from the Kardashian clan, who claim he has shared information about his and Kim's coparenting arrangement unnecessarily. North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm are the names of the former couple's four children. They were married for six years.
"Despite the split, Pete has let Kim know that he’ll always be there for her as a friend if she needs to vent or talk about anything," the source added. "Kim told Pete how much she appreciates that and also appreciates how he’s handled all of this. Kim explained to him that she knows it can be a lot for anybody to deal with and is grateful she’s been able to remain amicable with Pete," Cosmopolitan reported.
In 2020, Kanye was a fervent advocate for the Black Lives Matter movement. Along with participating in protest marches, he also gave the families of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor $2 million. The insider went on to say that Kim was "utterly bewildered" by his decision to wear such a shirt because she was "aware of how much support Kanye provided to the Black Lives Matter movement."
