Sources close to the couple say that Khloe Kardashian and Pete Davidson have ended their relationship and opted to remain friends.
According to the sources, despite the fact that the couple has “a lot of love and respect” for one another, they found it “very difficult to continue a relationship” because of their “demanding schedules.” Sometime this week, the two parties broke up.
As part of his work on the film Wizards!, Pete has been in Australia for part of the summer. Kim, on the other hand, is still raising her four children—North, Psalm, Chicago, and Saint—with her ex Kanye West, with whom she split in 2013.
Kanye West's divorce “is moving along,” a source tells us. “They are thriving as a team.”
Pete and Kim were revealed to be dating back in November by a source. Both sides were pleased with the direction it was taking, according to the person who spoke to me. It was revealed that Pete had made it clear that he didn't want to date anybody else. “She's telling some people they aren't extremely serious, but she isn't seeing anybody else… In spite of her best efforts, she is clearly infatuated with him.”
In October, Kim hosted Saturday Night Live, and the two first kissed. Since then, their romance has only become more passionate.
Not Skinny But Not Fat podcast host Kim remarked in April, “It was a stage kiss but it still had a little zing,” “It wasn't anything out of the ordinary.”
The next day, she was thinking, “Hmm, there's some BDE going on,” before realizing that Pete had skipped her SNL after-party. “Later, I reflected on it. It seemed to me that he was the only one who hadn't shown up.”
Afterward, he became close to her children and even made a brief appearance on her Hulu show, The Kardashians. The second season will premiere this autumn, according to a promo that showed them bathing together. Pete is likely to feature in the second season.

These last nine months have seen a lot of public displays of affection between the pair, from tattoo tributes to a combined Met Gala performance. In June, Kim's sister Khloe Kardashian went so far as to imply that Kim was in “LOOOOOOVVVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE” with the comedian.
In an appearance on Hart to Hart last month, Pete stated that having children is “my dream.” So he's trying to improve and get to the point where it's easy when that happens. “That's sort of what I'm simply prepping for now,” he said.
A source recently told us that Pete was filming in Australia at the time, and the pair was attempting to make long-distance work. “When they are apart, they communicate constantly,” a source added. His ability to make her laugh is what Kim enjoys most about him, and he certainly brightens her day when they chat.
