- Kim Kardashian’s friends and family “encouraged her to go” with Pete Davidson, report says
- Kardashian’s pals reportedly reminded him not to rush because Davidson has a ‘reputation for heartbreaker’
- Some of her friends fear Kardashian is “preparing for a vulnerable situation”
Pete Davidson brings fun and laughter into Kim Kardashian’s life, according to a report.
Dating rumors around Davidson, 27, and Kardashian, 41, continue to escalate despite multiple media reporting that they are just friends. However, an insider has now said Us weekly that the inner circle of the former “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” is in favor of a possible romance with the comedian.
“One of the first things Kim did was get advice from her family and friends, and they all encouraged her to go,” said the source close to the founder of Skims. “It’s been very evident for a while now that she’s lacked fun and laughter in her life, and of course Pete offers plenty of it.”
Kardashian and Davidson were first spotted together in October when they joined her sister Kourtney Kardashian and the latter’s fiance, Travis Barker, for a group outing to Knott’s Berry Farm ahead of Halloween. The pair were pictured holding hands on a roller coaster ride.
But while Kardashian enjoys spending time with someone as “spirited and laid back” as Davidson, her friends have also reminded her not to rush into a new relationship, according to the source.
âPeople are happy for Kim, but at the same time, they urge her not to get carried away or get too carried away,â the insider added. “Pete has this reputation as a heartbreaker for a reason, and while his intentions may be honorable, there is a slight fear that Kim is preparing for a vulnerable situation.”
After their take-over moment in California, Kardashian and Davidson flew to New York. The reality TV star attended the 11th annual WSJ Magazine Innovator Awards at the Museum of Modern Art. Meanwhile, Davidson has presumably returned to the Big Apple because rehearsals for “Saturday Night Live” begin Monday.
The couple quickly fueled dating rumors when they dined together two nights in a row. Davidson cooked dinner for Kardashian at Campania’s in his native Staten Island on Tuesday.
They met again on Wednesday at the Zero Bond hotspot, a leading private club in Manhattan. On their second dinner, they arrived separately and were joined by a larger group at the table, including Simon Huck, her fiancÃ© Phil Riportella and Jonathan “Foodgod” Cheban.
An anonymous source told Page Six that Kardashian and Davidson “smiled and laughed a lot and seemed genuinely affectionate to each other” during the rally. But the insider noted that despite this, there was no “Kravis-style PDA,” referring to the hot and heavy antics of Kourtney and Barker.
