Pete Davidson has clapped back at claims that he is 'selling his soul' and being 'brainwashed' by Kim Kardashian to 'give up his live in New York' to move to LA after he quit his job at Saturday Night Live.
According to reports, his friends are worried that he's leaving his life behind as a comedian to be Kim's 'full-time plus-one', claiming that she has turned him into a 'name-dropping robot'.
A source close to the comedian shared their opinion on his new found relationship with the reality star, claiming that the relationship started out humble with Pete being independent, but now he's changed, with Kim and her mum Kris Jenner 'running his life'.
Earlier this month, it was confirmed that he quit SNL after eight seasons but for unknown reasons, and his friends believe it's so Kim can turn him to a reality star like herself. Pete's reps have dismissed all claims, telling Mirror Online: "There is no truth to this".
Kardashian and Davidson confirmed their rumoured romance March this year, after she posted the first official 'couple' selfies of the two on her Instagram. They allegedly began dating after she hosted SNL in October 2021.
Kim filed for divorce her current husband Kanye West in February 2021 after seven years of marriage citing 'irreconcilable differences' as her reason.
