The hood of his sweatshirt was over his head and he looked straight to the ground as he walked to catch his flight. 

The star shoved his hands into the pockets of his hoodie and his shoulders were hunched over.

It’s been a tough week for Pete, 28, whose relationship with Kim, 41, came to an end at the beginning of August.

He was then publicly trolled by Kim’s ex-husband Kanye West, who mocked the former Saturday Night Live star on Instagram after the split.

Pete is said to have found the continued ‘attention and negativity’ coming from the rapper a ‘trigger’ and has been receiving trauma therapy since April. 

A source said Kim found Kanye’s Instagram post – an image of a fake New York Times newspaper with the headline ‘Skete Davidson dead at age 28’ – ‘appalling’.

A source told People on Monday: ‘He has been in trauma therapy in large part [due to Kanye].

‘The attention and negativity coming from Kanye and his antics is a trigger for [Pete], and he’s had to seek out help.’

In spite of the situation, Pete is said to have ‘no regrets’ about his nine month relationship with Kim.

The insider added: ‘Pete has no regrets for dating Kim and wants it to be made very clear that she’s been nothing but supportive of him throughout their relationship…

‘Moving forward he just wants to focus on his career.’

Earlier this week, a source close to Pete told DailyMail.com: ‘Their break up was completely amicable. They had a great time while it lasted but long distance and different priorities saw it come to an end.’

The former couple were first linked in October last year weeks after Kim made her hosting debut on Saturday Night Live, where the now-exes shared an on-screen kiss. 

During a confessional on her new Hulu show The Kardashians, Kim revealed that she felt ‘a vibe’ when she kissed Pete on Saturday Night Live and was struck by the desire to ‘try something different.’

After he neglected to show up to her afterparty, she got in touch with a producer on the comedy show and secured Pete’s phone number – though a serious romance was far from her mind.

‘I wasn’t even thinking, like: “Oh my God. I’m gonna be in a relationship with him,”‘ Kim admitted, explaining that to the contrary she was ‘basically just DTF.’ 

Pete has spent months filming his upcoming movie Wizards! in Australia, where Kim visited him in July for a romantic getaway in the Daintree Rainforest.

However, their luxury stay at a lavish five-star ‘eco lodge’ in the jungle was evidently not enough to salvage the couple’s relationship.

News of their split comes a day after a source told People that the ‘long distance hasn’t been easy for Kim’ as Pete continued shooting Wizards! abroad.

Earlier this week, a source close to Pete told DailyMail.com: 'Their break up was completely amicable. They had a great time while it lasted but long distance and different priorities saw it come to an end'

An insider has now explained to E! News: ‘They have a lot of love and respect for each other, but found that the long distance and their demanding schedules made it really difficult to maintain a relationship.’

Kim’s breakup with Pete comes as she is still ironing out the legal details of her divorce from her third husband Kanye West, with whom she shares four children – North, nine, Saint, six, Chicago, four, and Psalm, three.

Although Kim initially filed to end the marriage in February 2021, the process is still underway, and this week Kanye’s fifth divorce lawyer so far withdrew from the case.

Kim got married for the first time at 19, eloping to Las Vegas with music producer Damon Thomas, who was a decade her senior and whom she later accused of beating her. Damon staunchly denied the allegations.

Between marriages, she dated the dashing singer Ray J, who became her co-star in the world-famous sex tape that helped propel her to the stratospheric stardom she enjoys today.

Kim’s second wedding occurred when she was already a global celebrity – she was married to basketball player Kris Humphries for just 72 days before they split.

She and Kanye ultimately got married in Florence in 2014 and are now the co-parents. 

Kim and Kanye - who have four children together, including North, 9, Saint, 6, Chicago, 4, and Psalm, 3 - have been co-parenting since she filed for divorce back in January 2021

Despite Kanye’s furious text message to Pete: ‘NO YOU WILL NEVER MEET MY CHILDREN,’ Pete reportedly did become acquainted with Kim and Kanye’s little tykes.

‘Her family played a big part in helping Kim navigate the situation as Kanye made it clear he didn’t want anyone around his kids that Kim was with,’ an Entertainment Tonight source said in June.

‘Kim and her family discussed how they’ve always navigated being a blended family well and that Kim had to do what was right for her and Pete. The kids and Pete get along very well and Kim seeing him be so great with them only made her fall in love with Pete more.’
