Kim Kardashian is responding to Pete Davidson’s alleged subtle shade thrown at Kanye West at this year’s Emmys (September 12). The Saturday Night Live alum wore an outfit similar to the DONDA artist’s Met Gala outfit. Some fans think that he’s shading his ex-girlfriend’s ex-husband.
A source told Hollywood Life on Wednesday (September 14) about Kim’s feelings about Pete’s outfit — a black monochromatic Dickies ensemble, sneakers, and white shades. “Kim has no idea whether or not Pete was trying to send a subtle message to Kanye, but she’s assuming it’s his sarcastic way of responding to Kanye’s attacks,” the source said. “However, Kim seriously hopes it had nothing to do with him because she’s had enough drama over this whole thing. She is hoping [Pete] is taking the high road and isn’t being petty over the whole thing. She doesn’t have time for the messiness and as much as she understands where Pete is coming from, Kim feels it really isn’t worth it. She wishes him nothing but the best and hopes he can just let it go from here.”
As we earlier reported, Pete is dealing with Kanye’s harassment through trauma therapy Since April, Pete “has been in trauma therapy in large part. The attention and negativity coming from Kanye and his antics is a trigger for [Pete], and he’s had to seek out help,” a source said. On Kim’s part, “she’s been nothing but supportive of [Pete] throughout their relationship.”
A source also told Hollywood Life on September 9 that Pete wishes the best for Kim as she deals with Kanye’s Instagram posts. “Although Pete is somewhat relieved Kanye has kept his attacks against him to a minimum, he still feels awful for Kim, as she’s been the main target of his online assaults,” the source said. They also revealed that Pete would support her no matter what. “When they were together, Kim relied a lot on Pete to be there and support her every time Kanye would go on these rants,” the source explained. “He knows she has a ton of loved ones around right now, but he hopes that she knows he’ll still be there for her if she ever needs a friend to be there and listen.”
Kim and Pete broke up in August 2022 after nine months of dating.
