Kim Kardashian's divorce jokes about Kanye West on SNL 'were HER idea' as he insists producers pushed for jabs at split
DESPITE Kanye West's claims that Saturday Night Live producers put Kim Kardashian up to cracking jokes about their divorce, sources close to the sketch comedy show say it was all the KKW Beauty founders' idea.
During an appearance on the Drinks Champs podcast, the Chicago rapper, 44, who now goes by Ye alleged that Kim, 41, was forced to make jokes at his expense.
According to a new report from TMZ, however, that's not the case. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star's monologue was written well ahead of time.
Sources close to the show told the outlet that Kim arrived on set with jokes already written.
Those jokes included cracks about her relationship with Ye.
She presented them to the show's cast and the monologue was essentially unchanged from what she had.
Insiders told TMZ that Kim may eventually acknowledge that she and Ye are still technically married, but are no longer together.
The reality star has moved on — possibly with SNL star Pete Davidson.
SETTING THE RECORD STRAIGHT
Pete, 27, appeared on Late Night with Seth Meyers on Monday, where he finally addressed reports that he and Kim are a couple.
Seth kicked off the show with t, saying: "I want to address something.
"I feel like I want to confirm if it's real or a rumor. You've been reading a lot about it in the press," he said, teasing Pete and Kim's alleged romance.
Pete replied: "Yeah you know I've been wanting to talk about this because there's a lot of people I walk by, people are whispering and you know making eyes at me.
"And you know, but it is true. I do have a show on Tubi coming out."
The crowd responded with laughter.
Pete went on to joke: "The Tubi. A lot of people are shocked I could get a show on Tubi. But it's a real thing."
Pete's comments come after he left fans hanging during the most recent episode of SNL.
Fans were "disappointed" that he failed to address his budding relationship with Kim.
Pete didn't make his usual appearance on Weekend Update alongside Colin Jost and Michael Che.
He did, however, play NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers on the show, joking about his vaccination status.
There was no mention of Kim during the episode, however.
Fans flooded Twitter with disappointment.
One tweeted: "Pete are Aaron Rodgers… but more importantly is anyone gonna bring up Kim?! #SNL#SaturdayNightLive."
Another fan tweeted: "The fact that SNL didn't have Pete Davidson on weekend update to talk about Kim proves it's true."
Other Twitter users speculated about how the conversation may have gone if Pete did breach it: "Prediction: it's weekend update. colin brings up the kim k/pete rumors and goes 'here to share his take on it, it's pete davidson' and pete rolls in, as he does, and he'll laugh while trying to say anything regarding it then go on about something colin doesn't understand."
LOVE IN THE AIR?
Rumors of a relationship between Kim and Pete started swirling after they were spotted together at Knott's Scary Farm in California.
They then hung out in New York City last week.
The alleged couple started spending time together after Kim appeared on SNL.
On Tuesday, Kim visited Pete's favorite Staten Island restaurant, Campania, for a private rooftop dinner with the comedian.
The next night, they met up at Zero Bond in New York City.
Kim has been locked in a divorce battle with Ye since February. He claims he never saw the divorce papers, but TMZ reports that's false.
The couple share four children: North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm.
