After 9 months together, Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson have reportedly split up.

In news that broke last night (5 August), sources spoke to E! News to say that Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson have called time on their relationship.

The bombshell comes as a surprise after a whirlwind romance between the 41-year-old businesswoman and mother of four and the 28-year-old comedian. The duo seemed rock solid, with Pete making an appearance on The Kardashians and getting tattoo tributes, and the former couple sharing major PDA and even heading to the White House together.

Even just last week, US Weekly was reporting that the former couple were "still very smitten with each other" and "can't get enough of each other". So what went wrong?

Seemingly, their demanding schedules and the pressures of long-distance love are to blame. Pete is currently shooting his latest film, Wizards!, in Australia and has been apart from Kim for weeks at a time.

Yet details of how the former partners handled the pressures of being apart seemed positive, with a source reportedly telling the press; "When they are apart, they are in constant communication. Kim loves that he's always making her laugh and he truly makes her day when they talk." However, seemingly the time apart was just getting too much.

Reportedly, the breakup occurred some time last week, even if news only reached the press last night. Sources spoke to E! News to say that the duo's busy lives and differing timezones "made it really difficult to maintain a relationship."

However, there is still some good news. The outlet also reports that the couple still does have "a lot of love and respect for each other". At least they're leaving things on good terms.

We can't say that we won't be sad to see the end of Kete, but we hope that both parties are doing well.
