In the latest episode of Hulu's The Kardashians, the Skims mogul got real about the life lessons she learned after dating Pete Davidson in the public limelight. The two first got together after Kardashian hosted Saturday Night Live in October 2021, then subsequently broke up in August 2022.
"You obviously learn from every situation and the one thing I learned from last situation was the media made me feel like I was in a very serious relationship so quickly," Kardashian said in a confessional, per People. "I just want to sneak around a little bit. Theres nothing wrong with wanting to sneak!"
Kardashian's new romantic partner was previously teased in a trailer for season three's third episode. In the clip, the mom of four exchanges texts with a man she calls Fred.
Since Davidson was the first of Kardashian's romances to publicly emerge since she filed for divorce from Kanye West in February 2021, their relationship was intensely scrutinized. West joined in on the scrutiny, allegedly threatening the comedian with social media jabs such as posting a fake New York Times headline that read, "Skete Davidson Dead at Age 28." The rapper continued to criticize the new couple in a music video for "Eazy," in which he tied up and buried a claymation version of Davidson.
Davidson reportedly entered "trauma therapy in large part [due to Kanye]," a source previously told People. "The attention and negativity coming from Kanye and his antics is a trigger for [Pete], and he's had to seek out help."
Kardashian previously expressed her "guilt" over the antics Davidson endured while dating her.
“He went through a lot because of my relationship,” she explained in the season three premiere of The Kardashians.
She additionally slammed her ex-husband for publicly criticizing her. “He looks so down on me for my [sex] tape and like brings it up all over town,” she said. “All of his shenanigans is going to 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 and I know that’s the best thing for them.”
