The SKIMS founder started dating the former “Saturday Night Live” comedian for nine months after she hosted an episode of “SNL” in which the two shared a smooch. Back in February, the “Donda” rapper was very adamant that Pete, who he called Skete, would never meet his kids, but it looked like things were really heating up between the two.
However, their relationship ended abruptly on Friday, when sources reported that the two had broken up due to long distance. It seems that Ye waited until Monday to celebrate the news, breaking his self-imposed Instagram ban to celebrate the end of their relationship.
Kanye West Celebrates: ‘Skete Davidson Dead At Age 28’
On Monday morning, the Yeezy founder took to Instagram to celebrate the end of their relationship. He posted a doctored photo of a newspaper headline, reading, “Skete Davidson Dead At Age 28.” He followed it up with a by-line, taking a shot at Kid Cudi: “Kid Cudi meant to play funeral but fearful of bottle throwers.”
As The Blast previously reported, Kanye West was slated to play at the Rolling Loud music festival last month but dropped out and Kid Cudi replaced him as the headliner. However, fans disappointed that the “Stronger” rapper wasn’t performing started throwing bottles and other items at Kid Cudi, prompting him to storm off stage. Ye later took the stage to perform anyway, leading many to wonder why he stepped out to begin with.
Fans had mixed reactions to Kanye’s post. Some fans commented “Classic Kanye” while other fans didn’t think that it was necessary for him to also take a shot at Kid Cudi in the post, considering the two had once been close friends and collaborators.
Why Did Kim Kardashian & Pete Davidson Break Up?
Amid reports that the two were happier than ever and frequent social media snaps of the two together, many fans were absolutely shocked that Kim and Pete had called it quits.
One source told Page Six at the time of their split that it was actually their age differences that caused the split, although their busy schedules must have also played a factor. Last month, Kim had reportedly flown all the way out to Australia just to spend a few days with the “King of Staten Island” while he was in the country filming a movie with Orlando Bloom.
According to the insider, “Pete is 28 and Kim is 41 — they are just in very different places at the moment.” The source went on to say that Pete might have made too many demands on her time, which is a bit difficult for a mom-of-four.
“Pete is totally spontaneous and impulsive and wants her to fly to New York, or wherever he is on a moment’s notice,” the insider continued. “But Kim has four kids and it isn’t that easy. She needs to focus on the kids.”
In addition to season 2 of the new Hulu series “The Kardashians,” Kim is busy managing her SKIMS clothing line and a new skincare company, as well as modeling for many other fashion designers. With everything going on, the source said that Kim was “totally exhausted by this relationship and other things going on in her life.”
Did Kanye West Play A Role In Their Break-Up?
Fans following the couple can’t help but remember the Instagram feud that started back in February, with Kanye West lashing out at “Skete Davidson” sometimes multiple times a day. Although Ye has cooled off his Instagram use, it seems that things might have still remained complicated being the scenes.
The insider told Page Six, “When Kim is with someone else, Kanye can cause problems with the kids. He tries to divide and conquer. He can’t help it.” They added, “Kim is a really dedicated mother, and her kids will always come first. She wants and needs harmony at home and in her life.”
Kim and Kanye tied the knot in May 2014 and have four children together: North, 9, Saint, 6, Chicago, 4, and Psalm, 3. Some fans are wondering if it’s possible that Kanye and Kim will reconnect in the future now that Pete is out of the picture.
