Pete Davidson used his brief appearance on “The Kardashians” to mock Kim Kardashian for rejecting him from the 2021 Met Gala.
“You look so f-king handsome.” “Like, so cute,” Kardashian, 42, said to Davidson, 28, in the hotel corridor as the two prepared to attend the 2022 Met Gala together. “Remember when I asked for your number at the last Met [in September 2021], and you pretended you couldn’t give it to me because you had gloves on?” the comedian replied.
Kardashian recalled the moment and asked Davidson if he would “ask [her]again this time,” noting that she wasn’t wearing gloves this time. The “Saturday Night Live” alum said he would, adding to the reality star’s previous response, “It was actually the nicest excuse ever. I knew it was an excuse, but I remember…”
Kardashian was adamant that it “wasn’t an excuse!” And, while Davidson wasn’t buying it, he didn’t appear to be wounded by the rejection. “I remember being in the car being like, ‘Wow, she knows how to make someone feel really good about themselves,’” he shared. “I thought that was really sweet. You were like, ‘I’m sorry I can’t give you my number — I have gloves on.’”
Kardashian let out, “Had only I’d known.” Though she wasn’t romantically involved with Davidson at the time, the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star didn’t mind asking him for guidance on her future “SNL” hosting stint at last year’s Met Gala.
Davidson had tried to get the Skims founder’s phone number from their common friend, Megan Fox, months before the event but had been unsuccessful.
Their affair began only after the now-ex kissed during a sketch on Kardashian’s October 2021 “SNL” show. A blond Kardashian talked with her then-beau about their red carpet debut as a pair at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner only days before this year’s Met Gala, which took place in May.
“I really wanted our first red carpet for me to be in brown hair, and I wanted it to be a non-fashion event,” she told the stand-up comic, who jokingly replied, “Yeah, I wanted us to be getting slimed at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, but you know, to each his own.”
