Comedian and actor Pete Davidson is taking a page out of Kanye West’s book and starting his own fashion line. New reports claim that the comedian was inspired by his time dating reality star Kim Kardashian and wants to try something new. The couple dated for nine months and broke up in August due to differences in their age and schedules.
West, who’s in the middle of divorce proceedings with Kardashian, made his dislike for Davidson and the relationship very clear on social media. After the former couple split, the rapper posted a now-deleted post of an altered newspaper with a headline announcing Davidson’s death.
The insider also revealed that Davidson knows West will be upset about his clothing line. The comedian recently shaded West by wearing an outfit similar to the rapper’s Met Gala outfit to the 2022 Emmys. He previously revealed that West’s constant online attacks had forced him to seek therapy.

Pete Davidson Is Launching A Fashion Line
Sources close to Davidson recently revealed to Radar that the comedian is planning the launch of his first fashion line. The former Saturday Night Live star was reportedly “changed by Kim” and extremely motivated by his time with her, watching her manage her multiple businesses.

Kim Kardashian Recently Broke Up With Pete Davidson
Davidson and Kardashian dated for nine months and broke up in August, saying that the difference in their demanding work schedules was straining the relationship. A source reported the split to Page Six and stated that the former couple had decided “to just be friends.”
The source said, “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.” They also revealed that the 13-year age difference between Davidson and Kardashian factored into the break-up.
The insider said, “Pete is 28 and Kim is 41 — they are just in very different places at the moment. He’s totally spontaneous and impulsive and wants her to fly to New York, or wherever he is on a moment’s notice. But Kim has four kids and it isn’t that easy. She needs to focus on the kids.”
Kanye West Shaded Pete Davidson After The Break-up
From the moment Davidson and Kardashian went public with their relationship, West made his disgust for the comedian and their relationship very clear. At one point, the “Praise God” rapper leaked the couple’s conversations, mentioned Davidson in several songs, and portrayed him being buried alive in a music video.
After they split, West made a now-deleted post on Instagram, which featured a photo of a doctored New York Times newspaper clipping with a headline reading, “Skete Davidson Dead at Age 28.” The shade came shortly after Kardashian’s divorce lawyer, Laura Wasser, said in court that the reality star and West were getting along better amid their infamous divorce.
Pete Davidson Knows Kanye West Will Be Upset About His Clothing Line
The insider also revealed to Radar that Davidson is aware his new business venture will anger West. They said, “Pete has been taking meetings about designing a clothing line, which he knows will make Kanye explode.” It seems that the “Bodies Bodies Bodies” actor is finally done letting keeping quiet after West’s attacks.
Davidson recently attended the 2022 Primetime Emmy Awards and wore an outfit almost identical to West’s outfit at the Met Gala.

The source said that Davidson had been “in trauma therapy” since April and also said that “the attention and negativity coming from Kanye and his antics is a trigger for [Pete], and he’s had to seek out help.”
