Machine Gun Kelly doesn’t throw the tea over his best friend’s new romance.
While walking the 2021 AMAs red carpet with his daughter on Sunday, the “Midnight in the Switchgrass” actor was asked by an “Entertainment Tonight” reporter about Pete Davidson’s relationship with Kim Kardashian – but he wouldn’t give anything for it.
Kelly, whose real name is Colson Baker, instead smiled and continually said “no” as he walked away.
While the 31-year-old “Love Race” artist would have no bearing on their developing flirtation, sources have told Page Six the KKW Beauty mogul wants to keep it “low-key”, while another said the “Saturday Night Live” keeps her down.
“She acts like a teenager,” a source told Page Six exclusively after we broke the news that they were dating. “She’s constantly giggling. Pete has made her feel like the clock has turned back twenty years. She seems happy.”
The pair have been spotted on numerous dates in New York City and Los Angeles, with Davidson even courting her on his native Staten Island with a private rooftop dinner in Campania. Kardashian, 41, followed that up by bringing Davidson, 28, to Simon Huck’s birthday party in Zero Bond as her plus-one.
But like many people who saw the photos of the Skims founder and “King of Staten Island” stars holding hands and immediately felt confusion, those closest to the new couple also thought, “What the f–k?”
“I think a lot of us think ‘What the f–k?’ But you know, she’s happy!” a friend of Kardashian shared with The Post.
Another insider gushed about the former reality star getting back into the dating pool.
“All of Kim’s friends support this,” said a separate Kardashian source. “I know her friends think the world of… [Davidson]. They find him funny and charming. And she’s definitely at a point where she’s ready to go out and see people.
“I think it’s actually some relief that she’s ripped off the bandage and she’s dating again.”
