Kim Kardashian breaks silence on Pete Davidson leaving Saturday Night Live after star is blamed for comic's departure

KIM Kardashian has spoken out about her boyfriend Pete Davidson's departure from Saturday Night Live.

On Saturday night, Pete, 28, appeared in his last episode, following eight years on the comedy sketch show.

Kim, 41, subtly responded to her beau's decision in an Instagram Story with a picture collage of Pete's most memorable moments on SNL.

The model – who began dating the comic after locking lips during her hosting debut – has been blamed for his sudden career change.

The comic joined SNL as a relatively unknown in 2014 and became a breakout star.

But his professional life collided with his personal one after he famously started dating Kim following her October appearance on the show.

Now, fans have taken to Twitter to warn the Suicide Squad star that he has committed career suicide.

"The Kardashian curse has begun," one person tweeted. "This dude is a sucker. He's letting her dictate his life already."

Another disappointed fan added: "Are we starting to see the Kardashian curse hit Pete?  Hate to see his career get screwed over by a bad date."

Others say the writing was on the wall, especially with Pete's continually diminishing role on the show: "He's been marginally funny as of late. Looks like the Kardashian Curse is real!"

Some weren't sad to see him go: "Never heard of again!!! The booty has got to his head!!"

And one fan lamented the spread of the so-called career-killer: "The Kardashian Curse has moved from sports to SNL."


During a 2016 episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kylie Jenner filled viewers in on the "Kardashian curse."

She said: "The Kardashian curse is every male figure that comes and dates a Kardashian.

"Their life kind of just goes downhill after that."

The relationships usually end abruptly- along with their partner's successful careers.

A string of bad luck tends to follow in their wake, from addiction to struggles with mental health.

These "downhill moments" include Scott Disick and Lamar Odom's substance abuse while dating Kourtney and Khloe, respectively, and Kanye West's mental health issues that severely affected Kim and their four kids.

Rob Kardashian has also had to pull away from the limelight after not being able to deal with the attention his sisters were constantly getting.

He was also involved in multiple legal issues with his baby mama, Blac Chyna.

The famous siblings have slammed the cursed rumor, claiming that the truth is that the sister's partners are unable to handle the level of celebrity the business mogul family have.


Pete, however, is up to the challenge as he's seeking advice from momager Kris Jenner, 66, about the future of his career.

Despite leaving his management team in April, the Staten Island native appears to be doing well on his own.

He landed a role in Wizards! and filming will take place in Queensland, Australia.

He also recently opened Pebble Bar in NYC and purchased a decommissioned Staten Island Ferry as investments.

According to US Weekly, Kim's go-getter attitude has worn off on the comedian, prompting Pete to pay more attention to his future.
