“Kim and Pete are dating and having a great time together,” a source tells ET. “Pete is a romantic and goes out of his way to make Kim feel special. Kim thinks Pete is hysterical and he’s constantly making her laugh, but they also have been connecting on a deeper level.”
The pair recently spent Pete’s 28th birthday with Flavor Flav and Kim’s momager Kris Jenner in matching PJs from Kim’s SKIMS line. They’ve also been spotted out together on several dinner dates.
“They’re enjoying getting to know each other better and having a lot of fun, the source adds. “Kim sees how happy Kourtney [Kardashian] and Travis [Barker] are, and wants something similar to that.”
Pete is besties with Machine Gun Kelly, a longtime collaborator with Travis Barker, who recently got engaged to Kim’s older sister, Kourtney Kardashian.
In fact, back in September, Kim praised Kourtney and Travis’ romance during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
“I love their relationship. They’ve grown so much together,” Kim said at the time, adding of their PDA, “You know what, that’s what they do. And it’s so cute and I love love, so I love them.”
