It's over.

On Aug. 5, 2022, PEOPLE confirmed Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson broke up after nine months of dating.

"Part of the reason they split was because of their busy schedules," an insider told PEOPLE. "They both travel all the time and it was hard."

Kardashian and Davidson were among the couples that NBC's Saturday Night Live brought together, following the reality star's stint on the comedian's home turf in October 2021.

Not only did she make her hosting debut on the hit comedy show, but she tried her hand at acting in a few sketches too, including one opposite Davidson, who joined the cast in 2014. The two played Aladdin and Jasmine in a scene that ended with a kiss.

Kardashian was praised for her hosting skills, but just as her buzzy weekend had started to die down, the mom of four was back in the news once a photo of her and Davidson holding hands surfaced later that month.

Since then, the pair ramped up the romance big-time; in February 2022, the comedian referred to Kardashian as his "girlfriend" for the first time; he spent time with her children; and the two took a romantic vacation to Tahiti, after which a source said she was "head over heels" for the comedian.

Kardashian's new beau comes less than a year after filing for divorce from Kanye West in February 2021. Prior to the SKIMS mogul, the SNL alumnus was formerly engaged to Ariana Grande — but called it off in October 2018.

From their SNL kiss to their Met Gala debut and their breakup, here's everything to know about Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson's love story.

When Kardashian made her SNL hosting debut, she took part in a number of skits during her time on the show. One of the more memorable performances was her skit with Davidson, in which they played Jasmine and Aladdin in a cheeky sketch with a twist on the Disney classic.

Kardashian later recalled the moment on Amanda Hirsch's Not Skinny But Not Fat podcast in April. "When we kissed, I was just like, 'Hmm!' It was a stage kiss, but it was still like, a little zing. It wasn't anything like a super-crazy feeling. I was just like, 'Hmm,' and then I was like, 'Wow, I really haven't kissed anyone else in 10 years, so maybe I'm just like being stupid and it's just nothing and it's just a stage kiss.' "

"But Pete does not come to my after-party — everyone was at my after-party — [he] does not give me the time of day, so a few days later, I called the producer at SNL and was like, 'Hey, do you have Pete's number? And they were like, 'Yeah,'" she continued. "I text him. I wasn't even thinking like, 'Oh my God, I'm gonna be in a relationship with him.'

"After we got together and it was a thing, Megan Fox texts me and is like, 'Is this s--- for real?" she explained.
