The last thing you’d want to have in a relationship right before a break up is a marriage proposal on the table. But, if sources are correct, that’s exactly what went down prior to Pete Davidson and Kim Kardashian‘s now-infamous split.

According to Radar, a source says that while Kardashian felt overwhelmed by the intensity of their whirlwind relationship, Davidson just ramped things up even more. “Kim wanted to slow things down and instead Pete proposed,” the source explains.

“He is devastated. Everyone warned him that he was going to push her away, but he didn’t listen. Remember, this is the same guy that proposed to Ariana Grande after just a few weeks. Pete learned nothing from that relationship. He falls hard and he falls fast.”

This, of course, feels like it would totally be in line with Pete Davidson’s past behavior in relationships — as the source mentions, he famously proposed to Ariana Grande after mere months of dating. Plus, there are those dedicated tattoos to both Grande and Kardashian on his body — including one for Kardashian’s kids.


This is the latest rumor around why Kardashian and Davidson called it quits after sending the internet into an eternal tailspin with their loved-up behavior. Page Six reported earlier this week that the couple’s age gap of 13 years took its toll, as Davidson’s lifestyle was too intense for the busy Kardashian, who runs multiple businesses and wanted to prioritize being a mother as well.

Internet gossip account Deux Moi also shared a submission that alleged the filming of The Kardashians second season may have kept the relationship going for longer than Kim Kardashian intended, with the show needing more content that resulted in a second trip to Australia for Kardashian, one that put strain on Davidson. The account also shared a submission claiming the couple split up in Cairns during said trip.

Whatever the truth is, we’re almost certain it’ll be touched on in the new season of The Kardashians. It’s the Kris Jenner way.
