Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson’s surprise, whirlwind 9-month romance has come to an end for now, multiple sources close to the couple told E!, and they have decided to just be friends.
The sources explained that although Kardashian and Davidson have “a lot of love and respect for each other,” the long distance and their busy work schedules “made it really difficult to maintain a relationship.” E! learned the two broke up “sometime this week.” Davidson has been in Australia filming Wizards! while Kardashian has been in Los Angeles with her family.
The surprise report comes days after sources detailed to Us Weekly and E! that Kardashian and Davidson were making things work just fine while being long distance. A source close to Kardashian painted a particularly rosy picture to E! on August 1, claiming the couple was not having trouble despite being continents apart.
