Kim Kardashian struggled with her guilt after breaking up with Pete Davidson. During Thursday’s season 3 premiere of The Kardashians, Kim opened up about her split from the Saturday Night Live alum last August after nine months of dating.
While speaking to Scott Disick and sister Khloe Kardashian about her current dating situation, Kim, 42, admitted, “I’m single, and I’m not ready to mingle, and that’s OK. Breakups are just like, not my thing.” Scott and Khloe both pointed out that nobody actually likes ending relationships.
“It’s obviously sad … [Nine months] is a long time,” she continued, noting how she and Pete, 29, “had talks and talks” and “both of us communicated really well about it.” Kim then admitted she felt “a lot of guilt” after their split since Pete “went through a lot because of my relationship [with Kanye].”

Kim and Pete began dating in the fall of 2021 after the reality star’s hosting debut on SNL. The romance came months after Kim filed for divorce from Kanye, 45, after six years of marriage. During the course of Kim and Pete’s relationship, Kanye attacked the couple both online and in the press, including in a video for his single “Eazy,” in which the rapper kidnapped, tied up, and buried a claymation version of Pete.
The pair ultimately split in August 2022 after nine months together. Around that time, a source told People that Pete “has been in trauma therapy in large part” due to Kanye’s threatening posts. “The attention and negativity coming from Kanye and his antics is a trigger for [Pete], and he’s had to seek out help,” the source said at the time.
Though the comedian has made light of the situation, joking in one of his standup shows about how he had a “really weird year” and touching upon all the insults the rapper made towards him. Pete and Kim seem to have remained friendly, as they were spotted reuniting at the 2023 Met Gala earlier this month.
As for Kim and Ye, she broke down in the season premiere episode, telling her mom that she was “f—ing exhausted” by the drama with her ex-husband. “Even through all of the craziness of everything that Kanye says about us, I never comment, I never post… we stay silent through all the lies,” she told Kris Jenner. “Even how he looks so down on me for my [sex] tape, brings it up all over town, all over the media. Like, thanks for reminding people once again. All of his shenanigans is gonna be far more damaging to the kids one day than my tape will ever be and I have to sit here and not say anything, ever, because I know one day my kids will appreciate that.”
