Kim Kardashian Shows Her Support to Pete Davidson as He Bids Farewell to ‘SNL’
Kim Kardashian is supporting Pete Davidson as he takes on his next chapter.
The reality star shared a collage of her beau via her Instagram Stories on Sunday, hours after Davidson made his final appearance on “Saturday Night Live” over the weekend.
“Hello, Colin [Jost] and [Michael] Che and millions of people only watching to see if I bring up Kanye [West],” Davidson, 28, said during the show’s “Weekend Update,” referencing his 41-year-old girlfriend’s ex-husband, 44.
“I never imagined this would be my life.”
The comedian then reminisced over what it was like joining “SNL” in 2014 when he was just 20 years old.
“Look at me when I started here,” he said, as a throwback photo of himself popped up on the screen.
“Back then I was just, like, a skinny kid and no one knew what race I was,” he joked. “Like now, everyone knows I’m white because I became hugely successful while barely showing up to work.”
During his farewell, Davidson also referenced his short-lived engagement to Ariana Grande while giving a shoutout to show creator and producer, Lorne Michaels.
“He really always gives me the best advice,” Davidson said of Michaels, 77. “This is all true. I’ll never forget. I called him when I got engaged. I was like, ‘Lorne, I just got engaged to Ariana Grande after dating her for two weeks.’ He goes, ‘Oh, well hold on for dear life.’ It’s a true story.”
The “King of Staten Island” star confirmed his departure shortly after reports emerged on Friday that he was leaving the iconic sketch comedy series after eight years.
After joining in 2014, Davidson catapulted to fame thanks to his popular guest stints on “Weekend Update,” prominent film roles, Netflix specials and a string of high-profile girlfriends.
While Davidson was in NYC filming “SNL” — where he first met Kim during her hosting debut in October 2021 — the KKW Beauty mogul was in Italy ahead of big sister Kourtney Kardashian’s wedding to Travis Barker.
Several other members of the family have been spotted in Portofino, including Kylie Jenner, Kris Jenner, Kendall Jenner and Khloé Kardashian.
