Hot off the heels of her sister, Kourtney, getting engaged to Travis Barker, Kim Kardashian has gone and bagged herself a new beau: Pete Davidson.

After meeting - and sharing a kiss - on the set of Saturday Night Live in October, the pair have been spotted at an amusement park together, spending Davidson’s birthday together and now they’ve been pictured holding hands too.

It’s not the first high-profile relationship for either of them. Kardashian, 41, married Kanye West in May 2014 but filed for divorce in February this year.

Davidson, 28, has also had a spate of well-publicised relationships, having been engaged to Ariana Grande for a few months in 2018, as well as being seen with Kate Beckinsale, Kaia Gerber, Margaret Qualley and, most recently, with Bridgerton star Phoebe Dynevor.

So what exactly has transpired in the Kardashian-Davidson love fest so far? Read on for a timeline of the pair’s relationship.
