Anyone even remotely up on celebrity gossip knows that Kim Kardashian is dating “Saturday Night Live” comedian Pete Davidson, and her ex-husband rapper Kanye West isn’t happy about it. The dramatic feud has been playing out for months now, with Ye making public pleas to get Kardashian back while threatening physical harm to Davidson.
Paparazzi kept catching Kardashian and Davidson together, doing surprisingly normal things like going to the movies, heading out to restaurants, and even jetting off to the Bahamas together. Until now, however, the SKIMS brand founder hasn’t shared any love life updates with her 292 million Instagram followers.
That all changed Sunday. Kardashian posted photos of herself with Davidson in a variety of intimate poses. In one photo, Davidson has his head in Kardashian’s lap as he gazes up at her. Another image shows the “SNL” star taking a selfie while Kardashian blows a kiss to the camera.

The last photo includes a line from the 2010 movie “The Town” when Doug MacRay (Ben Affleck) tells James Coughlin (Jeremy Renner), “I need your help. I can’t tell you what it is, you can never ask me about it later, and we’re gonna hurt some people.”
James replies, “Whose car are we gonna take?”
The Instagram photo caption includes that last line, indicating she and Davidson are in whatever trouble arises together.
This photo series came at a very controversial time. Kardashian’s divorce from West, who is also the father of her four children, was just finalized. A screenshot of a text conversation that appears to happen between Ye and Davidson has been making the rounds on the internet. In it, Davidson mocks West by saying “In bed with your wife” along with a photo of his naked chest when asked where he was.
Fans are taking sides on the matter, with some saying the “SNL” star was antagonizing West on purpose and others taking Davidson’s side, claiming he was being reasonable in the text exchange and was just sick of being harassed. Either way, the photo sharing means Davidson and Kardashian are going public with their relationship. More details will be forthcoming with the release of Kardashian’s new reality show on Hulu.
While the KKW Beauty owner said she hasn’t filmed with Davidson yet, she also said he’s “not opposed to it.”
“It’s just not what he does,” Kardashian said in a recent Variety interview. “But if there was an event happening and he was there, he wouldn’t tell the cameras to get away.”
Fans will be treated to more details on how this unlikely pair got together in the first place. “How we met and who reached out to who and how it happened and all the details that everyone wants to know,” Kardashian told Variety. “I’m definitely open to talking.”
“And I definitely explain it,” she added.
