Kim Kardashian And Pete Davidson Went On A Movie Date Amid 'SNL' 2021 Final Show Facing COVID-19 Outbreak
Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson's romance continue to spark as the couple was spotted on a movie date in the comedian's hometown in Staten Island on Saturday evening.
The outing comes amid reports of Saturday Night Live experiencing a COVID-19 outbreak among their in-house production crew members.
According to Page Six, an insider claimed the new lovebirds were joined by Scott Disick, his friend Chris Reda and another man. The couple reportedly arrived at the theatre around 7 PM, although it is not known what film they went to see.
Prior to that, the SNL cast member was seen entering the hotel where Kardashian is staying during her trip to the Big Apple.
The group was pictured in great spirits gathering together at the Atrium Stadium Cinemas. Pete sported a light-colored jacket, while the Kardashian dressed in casual black attire.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, the iconic sketch show experienced a panic on Saturday afternoon due to COVID-19 outbreak among cast and crew, which had led some of the staff to pull out from their roles in the final episode.
A source from the set revealed "four actors" have tested positive for coronavirus. In contrast, "three others" reportedly backed down from their appearances on stage due to fear of getting exposed to the virus by going into the studios at 30 Rockefeller Center.

The final episode of 2021 continued to plow through eventually, hosted by Paul Rudd. However, almost none of the regular cast members were on air, with most of the show filled with a few pre-recorded videos from earlier in the week.
Prior to the episode, an informant claimed "everyone is fearful here" while the crew rehearsed at Studio 8H.
