“Pete uses the show as his personal dating service. That’s how he met Ariana Grande and that’s how he became friendly with Kim,” an insider dished, adding: “It’s the only place in the world where staff is not discouraged to date. Colin Jost met Scarlett Johansson at the show and who can forget Ben Affleck hooking up with the show’s producer Lindsay Shookus”
The 27-year-old Staten Island native has been linked to some A-list ladies, most recently dating Bridgerton star Phoebe Dynevor. “Pete loves dating super famous people,” the source scoffed. “He loves the attention and getting chased around by photographers. Right now, press is camped out outside his home in Staten Island, hoping to catch him with Kim, and he loves it.”
The Suicide Squad alum is basking in the attention being linked to the Keeping Up with the Kardashians alum brings. “The only time photographers care about Pete is when he is dating someone famous. With Kim he has hit the jackpot. Kim might be the only person on the planet who gets more attention than Ariana Grande. Pete is in heaven right now. His only problem is that Kim doesn’t want to date him.”
“Pete just isn’t her type,” a pal of Kardashian’s added with a laugh. “Have you seen the men that Kim dates? None of them look like Pete. She is happy to have him as a friend but nothing else. Although, you can’t blame him for trying.”
Kardashian filed for divorce from the Donda rapper in February. The former flames share four kids together: North, 8, Saint, 5, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 2.
