After nearly three long weeks of wondering if that hand-holding moment at Knott’s Scary Farm was more than just two desperate famous people looking for a quit hit of attention, Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson are “officially dating” and are a couple. A couple of stunt queens? No, a couple couple, like they’re for-real dating, according to several sources. Yes, it would be much more interesting if the confirmed celebrity couple in the picture above was Kris Jenner and Flavor Flav, but the universe is known for rewarding us in mysterious, disappointing ways.
The 41-year-old mother of four and underwear company billionaire and the 28-year-old man single-handedly keeping the tattoo industry alive met when Kim hosted Saturday Night Live last month and were seen hanging out as “friends” not too long after in California. Since then, Kim and Pete were seen several times having dinner together, which – again – was allegedly just a friends-having-dinner situation. And now, according to sources, all those dinners were basically dates. via Page Six:
Page Six has exclusively learned that the Skims founder, 41, and the Saturday Night Live star, 28, are officially dating.
Over at The Daily Mail, there are pictures of Kim and Pete holding hands in the Palm Springs area. They were there to celebrate his birthday at Kris Jenner’s home in La Quinta, CA. Wow, not even together for a month, and already Pete’s been successfully sucked into the inner circle. All that’s left now is the blood ceremony and the contract written on a page ripped from the Necronomicon, and Pete will have official clearance for all Kardashian family events and a laminated loyalty card for the totally-not-cursed Kardashian Boyfriends Klub.

A source who spoke to People wants us all to believe that Kim legitimately likes Pete and Pete is nice to Kim, which is apparently all she needs these days. To be fair, anything is a step up from a guy who frequently campaigned on your personal life during an embarrassing Presidential run. via People:
After Davidson celebrated his 28th birthday alongside Kardashian West and her mom Kris Jenner in Palm Springs, a source tells People that the duo “had a great time” together.
“Pete is back in NYC now, but Kim had a great time with him in Palm Springs,” the insider says. “They were very affectionate and seem more serious. He is very sweet to Kim. She is smitten. They have plans to see each other again soon.”
“Even when they are on different coasts, Kim and Pete stay in touch. They are getting to know each other better and getting along great,” the source said. “Kim loves his spark. He is very funny, entertaining and makes Kim happy. They are still dating and enjoying it. He showers Kim with compliments and she loves it.”
Who could have guessed that shallow compliments would be Kim’s favorite love language? Pete has truly figured it all out. But how does Kim’s former husband, Kanye West, feel about all of this? Well, we can’t know for sure, until he Tweets something about it, or opens his mouth on another podcast. But he’s probably not super siked about it. A few weeks ago, a source told TMZ that the Kardashian family was worried about how Kanye would handle the news of Kim and Pete, considering Kanye still reportedly believes Kim is his wife and they could get back together at any time. Pete is smart, he doesn’t have to worry. If Kanye calls Kim with his concerns, she can just pass the phone to Pete, who can be like, “Oh no Kanye, someone else just claimed to be the smartest Christian billionaire genius!” and that should distract Kanye for a good 56 hours.
