Pete Davidson’s new relationship with Kim Kardashian has reportedly led to the comedian missing rehearsals for the long-running sketch show Saturday Night Live
It’s been claimed that his actions have started to get under the skin of some of his colleagues at the stateside sketch show as he and Kim, 41, continue to flaunt their relationship.
The comedian, 28, and the reality TV star have been getting closer since her hosting duties on the show in October.
But his alleged behaviour since hasn’t impressed on the set of the long-running show.
While he still featured on the show alongside Ariana DeBose last Saturday, he was spotted enjoying a bite to eat with his new belle just days before.
A source told The Sun : “Pete has become a total diva at SNL.
“He missed the first few days of rehearsal last week and was still allowed to be in Saturday’s show.
“Normally, if you miss any rehearsals, you are out of the show on Saturday night, and the cast is starting to turn on him.”
And according to the insider it’s not just his no-shows that are infuriating fellow workers on the show.
They continued to say that he now has security waiting for him and is bringing unnecessary attention.
“Colin [Jost] married an actual movie star [Scarlett Johansson] and yet Pete is getting more attention,” they said.
The Mirror has contacted Pete’s representatives for comment.
While Pete’s new relationship might be causing tension in his work life, he is said to be giving the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star “exactly what she was missing” from her marriage to Kanye West.
Pete – who was previously engaged to pop star Ariana Grande – is known for his love of the more subtle things in life, and the comic appears to be rubbing off on his new lady.
In an Instagram fan account based on the SKIMS founder, her adoring fans took a closer look at a clip from the KUWTK where Kim spoke to her mother Kris about wanting the “smaller things in life” and “the things that matter” amid her crumbling marriage with Kanye West.
In the unearthed clip, Kim seemingly implied she was bored of the luxury lifestyle that she and the rapper had created for themselves in their marriage.
She said: “It’s the little things that I don’t have. I have all the big things. I have everything you could possibly imagine and nobody will ever do it like that – I know that.
“I’m grateful for those experiences, but I think I’m ready for those smaller experiences that I think will mean a lot.”
