Kim and Pete are reportedly both back in the Big Apple after spending the weekend together at a Southern California amusement park.
According to Page Six, Kanye West's estranged wife is in the city to attend WSJ Magazine’s 11th annual Innovator Awards at the Museum of Modern Arton on Monday evening. Pete, who's an East Coast native, has returned to prepare for SNL rehearsals.
The rumored lovebirds are on the same coast once again, days after Kim was caught holding hands with Pete at Knott's Scary Farm in Buena Park, California.
Photo evidence of the PDA emerged on Friday, showing the SKIMS founder's fingers interlocked in the 27-year-old's tight grip.
The hand-holding incident went down while the duo was on a rollercoaster at the thrill-seeking adventure park with Kim's sister Kourtney Kardashian and her fiancé Travis Barker.
“Pete just isn’t her type,” a pal of Kim’s told us. “Have you seen the men that Kim dates? None of them look like Pete. She is happy to have him as a friend but nothing else. Although, you can’t blame him for trying.”
We're also told that he's loving the attention being linked to Kim brings.
“Let’s just say it, Pete loves dating super famous people. He loves the attention and getting chased around by photographers. Right now, press is camped out outside his home in Staten Island, hoping to catch him with Kim, and he loves it,” our insider said.
“The only time photographers care about Pete is when he is dating someone famous. With Kim he has hit the jackpot. Kim might be the only person in the planet who gets more attention than Ariana Grande. Pete is in heaven right now. His only problem is that Kim doesn’t want to date him.”
Their connection is allegedly through Kourtney's fiancé. Travis drums for Machine Gun Kelly's rock group, and MGK is Pete's best friend.
SNL wasn't the first time that Kim and Pete have hung out. In 2019, they appeared close at Kid Cudi's birthday party, although Kanye was also at the festivities.
The KKW Beauty mogul famously filed for divorce from Kanye in February after 7 years of marriage. Together, they have four kids — North, 8, Saint, 5, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 2.
While Kim's estranged husband is impressive, so is Pete's extensive list of exes. The SNL star was engaged to Ariana Grande, and dated starlets like Kate Beckinsale, Kaia Gerber, Margaret Qualley, Cazzie David, and Phoebe Dynevor.
