The two first met when Kim guest starred and hosted an episode of Saturday Night Live in October 2021, and they shared a quick on-screen kiss.
Sparks immediately flew between them, and shortly afterwards, they decided to take a chance and date in real life.
Kim was previously married to rapper, Kanye West, or also known now professionally as Ye. The couple married in 2014, but the media influencer filed for divorce in February 2021.
The exes share four children together, North, Chicago, Psalm, and Saint West. Despite filing for divorce over a year ago, details are still being fine-tuned. Kim was declared legally single earlier this year in March.
Kanye publicly voiced his dislike of his ex-wife and the SNL comedian forming an attachment, and referenced to beating the actor up in his single, Eazy. Pete tried to calm the waters and meet with the singer to no avail.
