If you thought Kanye West’s short-lived fling with Irina Shayk was unexpected, you might want to sit down for this one. In time for spooky season (because you might find this very spooky) Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson have sparked romance rumours after they were spotted at Knott’s Scary Farm at the weekend.

The pair were attending the seasonal Halloween-themed Knott’s Berry Farm theme park with Kourtney Kardashian, Travis Barker among other friends. The reality star and SNL regular were photographed squeezing each others hands while riding one of the park’s rollercoasters and again on another ride. You can see all the photos, here.

Kardashian, 41, and Davidson, 27, both appeared on Saturday Night Live in October. In one skit where they played Disney’s Jasmine and Aladdin, the couple shared a quick peck. A prelude of what was to come, perhaps?

A source for People has since shut down the rumours, claiming they’re simply close friends. “They hang in the same circles so they will be together from time to time. It’s just friends hanging out.”

Given Kim’s sister Kourtney and Barker were long-time friends before dating earlier this year (and subsequently engaged), anything could happen.

Kardashian divorced from West in February 2021. Despite the very public split, the Skims founder has kept West’s last name – officially speaking – and still relies on her ex-husband for certain business dealings. The couple sparked rumours that they were getting back together in October, following her SNL performance when the rapper was reported to have helped prepare Kardashian and sat front row at the show.

2021 has shaped up to be a year of unexpected celebrity couplings. We’ve come to terms with a risqué Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly as well as Taika Waititi and Rita Ora. Davidson is also previously linked to Phoebe Dynevor.
