KIM Kardashian broke up with Pete Davidson due his "immaturity & young age".
The KUWTK star, 41, and the former SNL funnyman decided to call it quits after nine months of dating, and have decided to just be friends.
The pair – who have a 13 year age gap – were said to be in different stages of their life, making it difficult for them to have a long-term relationship.
"Pete is 28 and Kim is 41 — they are just in very different places at the moment," a source told Page Six.
"Pete is totally spontaneous and impulsive and wants her to fly to New York, or wherever he is on a moment’s notice.
“But Kim has four kids and it isn’t that easy. She needs to focus on the kids.”
The source told the publication that Kim was “totally exhausted by this relationship and other things going on in her life.”
They added: "When Kim is with someone else, Kanye can cause problems with the kids. He tries to divide and conquer. He can’t help it.
“Kim is a really dedicated mother, and her kids will always come first. She wants and needs harmony at home and in her life.”
The split occurred sometime this week, according to E! News.

"They have a lot of love and respect for each other," one insider says, "but found that the long distance and their demanding schedules made it really difficult to maintain a relationship."
Pete has been spending part of the summer in Australia working on a movie.
Kim is rumored to be reconnecting with ex husband Kanye West, with whom she shares children North, Psalm, Chicago and Saint.
Fans had been sifting through clues a split was imminent, after Pete, 28, was seen hanging out with the cast of his new horror comedy Bodies, Bodies, Bodies, in candid behind-the-scenes snaps.
In the photos, Pete beamed at the camera while posing with his co-stars Amandla Stenberg, Maria Bakalova, Myha'la Herrold, Chase Sui Wonders, Rachel Sennott and Lee Pace.
The comedian was in character, wearing a white tank and had a black eye.
Fans shared the intimate shots on Reddit and speculated that he looked "single" in them.
One user posted: "Pete too carefree and happy here. That man just glad he doesn't have to spray tan himself anymore."
Another added: "He looks single as hell."
Kim and Pete have sparked split rumors over the last few weeks during their time apart.
Pete is currently in Australia on the Cairns set of David Michôd's 2023 comedy, Wizards!
MISSING KIM ACTION
Kim, meanwhile, has been hard at work filming the second season of her Hulu reality show – which is premiering September 22.
Fans have become convinced that she is back with her ex Kanye West.
The SKIMS founder filed for divorce from the rapper in February 2021 after nearly seven years of marriage.
However, The Kardashians star has seemingly dropped several hints over the past few weeks that the two may be back on.
Last week, she wore white bikini bottoms, and a matching white top that says "The Incredibles."
Fans remembered when Kanye gave a confessional interview sitting next to Kim on Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
MESSAGE TO KANYE?
In the confessional, he said the only reason he agreed to do the interview is that it reminded him of the Disney movie "The Incredibles."
"It starts off with the interviews, the superheroes are giving interviews. The wife got a big butt, and I just see our lives becoming more and more and more like 'The Incredibles' until we can finally fly," he said with a laugh.
"He would," responded Kim with an uncomfortable laugh.
Fans were quick to respond to Kim's photos, with one writing: "Is this hinting at a Kimye comeback?"
PETE AND KIM
The couple met on the set of Saturday Night Live and shared a kissing scene during an Aladdin magic carpet ride skit.
"It was a stage kiss, but it was still a little zing," Kim said on the Not Skinny But Not Fat podcast in April.
They started dating in November 2021, and a source told E! News at the time: "Pete has told her he doesn't want to see anyone else.
"She is telling some people they aren't super serious but she isn't seeing anyone else… She's trying to not make a big deal about it but is super into him."
After they began dating, Davidson appeared on episodes of The Kardashians.
"I wasn't even thinking, like, Oh my god, I'm going to be in a relationship with him," Kardashian said on the show.
"I was just thinking, like, 'Heard about this BDE, need to get out there.' I was just basically DTF."
