The Saturday Night Live comedian and reality star have gone their separate ways, months after first meeting on Pete’s show.
Their split was reported on the same day Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson’s second child was reportedly born via surrogate, but Kardashian fans seem to be more interested in Kete splitting – and what the comedian will do now.
Pete had got multiple tattoos in honour of his businesswoman girlfriend: one bearing the words ‘My girl is a lawyer, and another saying ‘Aladdin and Jasmine,’ a reference to their first kiss on the SNL sketch.
Another saw the actor ink his girlfriend’s initials into his skin, along with those of her four children, North, Saint, Psalm and Chicago.
Now that the pair have broken up, it didn’t take fans long to reference the tattoos and absolutely annihilate the premature, permanent decision.
Flocking to Twitter, hundreds of people made their thoughts known, with plenty making reference to the fact Pete has had to get tattoos of his exes covered up before.
‘Pete Davidson’s tattoo removal guy just put a down payment on another boat,’ one person joked.
One shared an image of a man dressing up in a clown costume and said: ‘Pete Davidson really got all those tattoos for Kim Kardashian only for them to break up.’
Sharing a gif from Amazon Prime’s The Boys, of Homelander looking extremely flustered, one person wrote: ‘Pete Davidson realizing he has to get tattoo coverups over another failed relationship.’
Another used a Stranger Things scene to portray what he thought Pete could be feeling. Which scene? Crying Will, obviously.
‘Pete Davidson after realizing he got Kim Kardashian and her kids’ initials tattooed on his body for no reason,’ they wrote – to the tune of 230,000 likes.
Another fan tried to see the positive side, as they admitted they want to live ‘with the sheer undaunted optimism of pete davidson every time he walks into the tattoo shop.’
‘Pete Davidson’s tattoo removal guy is set for life,’ another agreed.
Pete’s decision to get his girlfriend’s children’s initials tattooed divided the internet back in May, with some finding it to be a sweet gesture but many more thinking it was premature and, in a way, disrespectful.
Kim’s ex, Kanye West, had been vocally against Pete getting to know the children, with some suggesting Pete had got the tattoo simply to ‘poke the bear.’
It’s not the first time Pete has had to cover up multiple tattoos dedicated to a former flame.
After breaking off his engagement to God Is A Woman singer Ariana Grande, Pete had to get several tattoos covered up or removed, including a Dangerous Woman ink on his neck covered with a black love heart.
He also had a matching quote tattoo he and Ariana had shared covered up with the words ‘Cursed.’
Mum-of-four Kim had previously explained the tattoos Pete had for her, revealing on the Ellen DeGeneres Show: ‘First tattoo he got, I was like, “Thank you, oh my god.”
‘Second, I was like, “So cute,” but that’s what tattoo people do, right? They get tattoos of what’s going on in their life.’
‘The branding is my name,’ Kim continued. ‘The other ones are cutesy things. I think my favourite one, it says: “My girl is a lawyer.” And that one’s really cute.’
