UPDATE: 8/8/22 at 10:25 AM — Sources close to the former couple deny that any proposal took place.
“Everything was just moving too fast. Kim wanted to slow things down and instead Pete proposed,” sources tell RadarOnline.com. “He is devastated. Everyone warned him that he was going to push her away, but he didn’t listen. Remember, this is the same guy that proposed to Ariana Grande after just a few weeks. Pete learned nothing from that relationship. He falls hard and he falls fast.”
Insiders add that Kim is focused on her four kids.
“Kim is a great mom. She’s fully committed to her kids and any man she meets needs to know that. Pete understood and was fine sharing Kim with her children, but he also wanted to get married yesterday,” says a friend.
The rapper created the nickname during the Instagram tirade that got him suspended by the social media giant.
“Skete Davidson Dead At Age 28," Kanye wrote along with a mock-up cover of The New York Post.
Kim's ex-husband continuously meddled in her relationship with Pete, making it harder for the duo.
“When Kim is with someone else, Kanye can cause problems with the kids. He tries to divide and conquer. He can’t help it...Kim is a really dedicated mother, and her kids will always come first. She wants and needs harmony at home and in her life," insiders told Page Six.
Kim filed for divorce from Kanye in February 2021. The judge declared them legally single in March. They are still battling over property and custody of their four kids — North, 9, Saint, 6, Chicago, 4, and Psalm, 3.
