Pete Davidson looks to be so in love with Kim Kardashian that he is avoiding everything in order to be with her, or so his cast members think. Pete’s cast members recently stated that they feel ‘abandoned’ as a result of his absence from seven consecutive episodes.
Saturday Night Live, NBC’s late-night sketch comedy series, will end its 47th season next week with Natasha Lyonne as host and Japanese Breakfast as musical guest, but all eyes will be on whether Pete Davidson returns to the show. According to Radar Online, the 28-year-old has not been on the show since February 26 and his co-stars assume he has already left.
According to reports, the Staten Island native was released in order to make an indie horror film in his hometown borough of New York. However, Davidson’s frequent appearances alongside girlfriend Kim Kardashian and the Kardashian clan have puzzled and enraged fellow cast members. “Pete is a huge part of the show. But it’s as if he’s either a part-timer or quit mid-season,” said one source connected to the show.
“Some of his costars are privately raising their eyebrows. Here they are being told by everyone at NBC that he is filming a movie, but all they see is him bobbing up alongside Kim and her family at events like the WHCD (White House Correspondents Dinner) and the MET Gala. It’s hard not to feel anything but abandoned by one of their own!”
“Perhaps Pete thinks he’s now beyond SNL. It’s more unlikely than likely that he’ll return to for his ninth season. Everyone is whispering backstage that he’s already quit,” a second insider said. Lorne Michaels, the show’s chief producer, warned viewers last week that 2022 would be “a year of change.”
Davidson, for his part, stated in a 2020 interview that he wished he had left the show earlier in 2019. “I have a weird feeling in that building where I don’t know whose team they’re playing for,” Davidson said of his time on SNL. “If I’m the joke or I’m in on the joke. I really wanted  to be my last year, but I’m still around and trying to knock it away.”
Let’s see whether Pete tries to reconcile with his cast members, who stood by his side during his feud with Kanye West To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
