Kanye West’s love-hate relationship with Saturday Night Live got even more complicated after his ex-wife, Kim Kardashian, started dating cast member Pete Davidson in 2021. “Fuck SNL and the whole cast, tell ‘em Yeezy said they can kiss my whole ass,” Ye rapped in 2010’s “Power.” While Davidson wasn’t on the show at the time, Kardashian started seeing the comedian after she hosted SNL in October—so those lyrics might be more relevant now than ever for the music superstar. More than a year after filing for divorce from the Yeezy designer, the beauty mogul is seemingly enjoying her budding relationship with the King of Staten Island star. She has also been dodging her ex-husband’s multiple attempts to get her back, so naturally, Davidson has become Ye’s latest target.
West married Kardashian in a lavish ceremony at Fort di Belvedere in Florence in May 2014. They seemed like the perfect match at first, but after nearly 10 years together and four kids later, cracks started to show in their marriage. The pair separated and she filed for divorce in February 2021. The divorce appeared to be amicable at first but it seems like Kardashian’s new relationship caused tension between her and her ex. There’s no telling how far her relationship with the I Want You Back star will go, but it doesn’t look like the “Moon” rapper is ready to let this one-sided beef go. West has been linked to multiple women in the past year, including Julia Fox, but that hasn’t stopped him from targeting Kardashian’s new man on social media and through his music.
There’s plenty of discourse regarding West’s behavior toward his ex and her new partner, with some saying it is borderline abusive and toxic. While the Instagram posts, the song lyrics, and videos might seem as just entertainment for others, they could result in real-life dangerous situations for the people involved. Perhaps this turmoil will fizzle out once the KimYe divorce is finalized. Until then, we’ve compiled a timeline of everything that has happened between West and Davidson so far. While the rapper has deleted most of his Instagram posts aimed at the SNL star, we’ve scoured the web to find as many of them as possible with the help of some dedicated fan pages. We have a feeling it’s not ending any time soon, so check back for updates as this story develops.
