According to a source “Kim loved visiting Pete in Australia in July. They had been apart for several weeks and they enjoyed a long weekend together.” The source goes on to tell People “Pete is still filming, but will be finished now in August. He has another project in the U.S. though, so he will continue to be busy.”
The insider adds that Kim “is just excited that he will be back in the U.S. soon. The long distance hasn’t been easy for Kim, but they are making it work. They are still very happy. They are very much a serious couple.”
They end their relationship in August 2022.
According to People, Kardashian and Davidson’s relationship is now over. The couple’s busy work schedules and long distance relationship, according to E! News, who broke the news, were factors in their decision to break up. “[Kim and Pete have] a lot of love and respect for each other,” a source told the outlet. “[But] they found that the long distance and their demanding schedules “made it really difficult to maintain a relationship.”
