Kim Kardashian has finally talked about how her relationship with Pete Davidson came to be in late 2021.
During an episode of the Dear Media podcast Not Skinny But Not Fat, she told host Amanda Hirsch that they had chatted at New York City’s Met Gala in September but had not yet exchanged numbers.
And they only spent time together the day she appeared on Saturday Night Live where she felt a ‘zing’ during their ‘stage kiss’ for the Aladdin skit. She also admitted that she felt drawn in by his legendary ‘BDE’ which means ‘big d*** energy.’
The star, 41, also shared that they had a ‘chill’ first date at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles some time after SNL.
As far as that date at Knott’s Berry Farm, she said she was not ready to go public with Davidson yet as they wanted to get to know each other better first.

Kim began by sharing what their interaction was like at the Met Gala on September 13.
‘I knew him and even saw him at The Met. His story is that he was like, you know, had been asking around for my number a little bit and everyone, like, wasn’t really sure, like, you know, is she going through a divorce?’ said Kim.
At the time, Kim had already filed for divorce from Kanye West, with whom she has four kids.
‘Like, he just wanted to wait a little bit, but I saw him at The Met and he knew I was hosting SNL, but it wasn’t announced yet. And so I was like, he came up to me and we were talking about SNL. And I was like, they better hurry up and announce it because I will not, you know… I’m so nervous,’ added the SKIMS founder.

‘And so he just gave me good advice and he was like, “Hey, take my number. If you, if you need anything.” And I couldn’t get in my phone with the gloves. And I was like, “Oh, I have gloves. And I can’t.” He was like, alright cool. And he, like walked away, but I was going to be like, “Oh, but take my,” you know, and then, but it was like, no.’
She said they did not ‘connect’ until the day she hosted SNL on October 9.
‘He was like the one cast member that wouldn’t sign off to be filmed [for The Kardashians]. And he wasn’t there until just the day of. So I didn’t see him all week during rehearsals,’ she noted.
Host Hirsch said fans guessed they started dating during rehearsals.
Kim clarified they did not rehearse together before the show.
‘We met that day [on SNL]. He came and we did one dress rehearsal. We did our dress rehearsal and then the real thing. And so the whole time when I was rehearsing, it was like with a stand-in and I was like…’
The host interrupted to ask, ‘But was there an inkling of like, Hmm. Like, did you see the BDE that everyone talks about?’
Kim responded with: ‘I was like, not even focused on that. And then when we kiss, I was just like, really? But yeah, it was a stage kiss, but it was like still like a little zing, you know? It wasn’t anything like a super crazy feeling.

‘I was just like, Hmm. And then I was like, “Wow, I really haven’t kissed anyone else in 10 years. So maybe I’m just like being stupid and it’s just nothing. And it’s just a stage kiss.” And then a few days later I was like, “Hmm, there is some BDE action. And like, how am I going to? I just got to get myself out there.”‘
And Kardashian said Pete did not attend the SNL after party.
‘He is too cool for school. I know… he was the only person who did not come that everyone came… Everyone was there.’
Kim said that Pete just does not go out: ‘He doesn’t really party. I was like, damn, he’s the only person that didn’t come. I thought about it after the fact.’

And then they ‘privately hung out.’ Kim said on their first date they did not do much: ‘We just chilled and hung out.’
She said they met up at the Beverly Hills Hotel but did not want to explain how they went from SNL to dating because it will be revealed on her show, The Kardashians, which debuts April 14 on Hulu, and she wants fans to find out there.
‘I talk about it on my show. That is the one thing that I talk about. So I think I’ll get, I’ll think I’ll be that girl and you have to tune in,’ she added.
She also talked about their date at Knott’s Berry Farm on October 29. Photos of them side by side on rides and holding hands were sold making fans wonder at the time if they were an item.
‘We had turned off the cameras. We made sure that those pictures wouldn’t be up. So it was pretty shady whoever sold all those photos,’ said Kim.
All good: And Kim added she is so happy these days that it’s hard for her to talk about her split from Kanye West. ‘I almost don’t want to talk about the Kanye divorce because I know that it’s like less of a fun topic, but I just want to say… we have so much love for each other’; seen in 2020
Kim was seen getting close to Pete at the amusement park as they joined her Kourtney Kardashian and her fiancé Travis Barker.
She said she does not know who sold the photos and was not ‘accusing anyone,’ but she is curious who made money on the images because they followed her on ‘every single ride.’
But no one has claimed to be the photographer yet.

‘I almost don’t want to talk about the Kanye divorce because I know that it’s like less of a fun topic, but I just want to say… we have so much love for each other. We really do. And like we’re always family, we’re always going to have so much love and we love our kids.’

KIM SAYS SHE DOES NOT REALLY ‘COMMUNICATE’ WITH EX-HUSBAND KANYE WEST
Kim has revealed that she isn’t on speaking terms with her ex-husband Kanye West at the moment.
During Tuesday’s episode of Not Skinny But Not Fat podcast, the reality star delved into her complicated relationship with the father of her four children: North, eight, Saint, six, Chicago, four, and Psalm, two.
‘Right now it’s good when things are calm, we don’t really communicate, but I think that’s okay sometimes,’ she admitted. ‘We will. We always will. That’s just who I am.’
And she stressed that she cares for the rapper: ‘I spent a decade of my life with this person, and I just have so much love for him. So that’ll never change, but it doesn’t mean that they’re the right one for you and that’s okay too.’

And she also said that after she filed for divorce a year ago, they went eight months without speaking.
‘We went off and on, and we went about eight months without even speaking to each other at the beginning of the divorce,’ the KKW Beauty founder claimed.
She continued: ‘Then we started talking again, and I went to the Donda premiere. I mean, he would still see the kids and stuff.
‘Him and I just took a minute of not talking, and I think in relationships it’ll be like that. I only hope for – I hope we are the co-parenting goals at the end of the day,’ the shapewear mogul added.

‘I look back and my mom and dad went through their hard time,’ she recalled. ‘It took people a minute to readjust, and I’ve seen it all before.’
Despite their strained relationship, Kim made it very clear she and her ex still have ‘so much love’ for each other and will ‘always’ be family.
‘We’re always gonna have so much love, and we love our kids, and we both love the time we spent together,’ the Keeping Up with the Kardashians alum stated.

She noted: ‘I think that we’ll always have that and always cherish that, and sometimes it just doesn’t work out for whatever reasons.’
Even after a few public back-and-forths on social media about their custody agreement, Kim said she doesn’t ‘judge’ the way he communicates.
‘Whether it’s the way I would or not, like, I know who he is inside,’ she explained to listeners.
Kim pointed out: ‘I know what he means to say, and I know what he means to express, and that’s the beauty of knowing someone for so many years.’
Still, she struggles when their respective fan bases pick apart their every move and fight with each other.
