If there was any doubt left in your mind that Pete Davidson and Kim Kardashian are dating—or, if you believe in the Kris Jenner machine, avidly working to make us think they’re dating—let us please direct you to the latest round of images of the pair, in which Davidson’s neck accessory speaks volumes.
Stepping out for dinner on Monday night in Santa Monica for a private date at restaurant Giorgio Baldi (also beloved by Rihanna), Kardashian wore a chic all black look consisting of a leather skirt, turtleneck and thigh-high boots. Davidson meanwhile wore his usual low-key style, consisting of blue jeans, a jacket, a cap and a—*checks notes*—big old hickey on his neck.
I know what you’re thinking, hickeys are usually reserved for loved up teenagers. But apparently, that’s exactly how Davidson and Kardashian are acting. In The Daily Mail’s story about the outing (where you can also see the pics), the publication notes they were “giggling like lovestruck teenagers” and “descended into fits of laughter” after holding hands to leave the restaurant in the same SUV.
This dinner follows the pair spending Davidson’s birthday together in Palm Springs, where they wore matching SKIMS PJs and hung out with Flavor Flav. Fans also think Davidson is behind Kardashian’s recent bikini hot tub photo and make a convincing case for the allegations.
Of where their relationship is at, a source told E! News “They are really happy and seeing where it goes. Pete has told her he doesn’t want to see anyone else. She is telling some people they aren’t super serious but she isn’t seeing anyone else… She’s trying to not make a big deal about it but is super into him. Kim is smitten over him and it’s very exciting to her.”
Another source recently told Page Six Kardashian is “constantly giggling” around Davidson and is “acting like a teenager.” They added, “Pete has made her feel like the clock has moved 20 years back” and that “she seems happy.”
We love to see it.
