Last week, Kim Kardashian broke the internet yet again. This time, she wasn’t posing for a magazine cover or releasing a new range of shapewear, but sitting on a rollercoaster ride holding hands with none other than BDE founder and Saturday Night Live comedian Pete Davidson.
Following the images being released (and the meltdown that naturally ensued), a slew of sources spoke out, ensuring Kardashian and Davidson are nothing more than friends. “They hang in the same circles so they will be together from time to time. It’s just friends hanging out,” one person told People.
However, others noted that though things are friendly between the pair for now, that’s not saying there’s no chance of it turning romantic in future. “They are just friends right now, but things could turn romantic,” said Us Weekly’s insider. “No one really knows what is going on with Kim and Pete,” they added, while another source told the outlet, Kardashian was “surprised” by the amount of chemistry she has with Davidson.
Surprised? Has the woman not heard of BDE and the many women who fell before her? Ariana Grande! Margaret Qualley! Kate Beckinsale! Phoebe Dynevor! Kaia Gerber! Cazzie David!—Though, we can admit, even with that commendable list of talented, beautiful women, if there was one person we’d think could resist BDE’s pulls, it’s Kim Kardashian.
Now, almost a week on from the hand holding, Page Six has an update, reporting that Kardashian is “at least interested” in Davidson. “She is intrigued,” a source said. “She likes him.”
Instagram account @DeuxMoi, where all the real dirt lives, also had anonymous sources write in this week with one alleging Kardashian asked Davidson’s publicist for his number following starring alongside him in the recent SNL skit where they locked lips during her hosting gig for the show a few weeks ago.
Further adding stoke to the fire is the fact that Kardashian is currently in New York City for work—where Davidson lives and works. Any rollercoasters near Manhattan?
