The pair were recently spotted holding hands at Knott’s Berry Farm in California. "Knott's was the first outing that Kim and Pete had. They're friends and she thinks he's really fun and funny," an insider told E! News. "They have mutual friends in common, so they will probably hang out again, but everything is casual."
However, it seems the friendship could become something more. An insider told Hollywood Life that the comedian and the reality star became "better friends" while they were working on their Alladin skit for Saturday Night Live. Rehearsing the sketch — where they shared a kiss — "really brought their connection together faster."
"They were having a good time — you could see that there were sparks," the source spilled. "You can tell they became quick friends while she was on the show."

According to the source, they are not "officially boyfriend and girlfriend" but there is "an attraction" between them and they’re "weighing the options" of pursuing a relationship.
Meanwhile, a Radar insider shared that Davidson uses SNL as his "personal dating service." "Pete was more supportive than anyone in the cast when Kim hosted," the insider explained. "He went out of his way to make sure she was comfortable and even took time to privately coach Kim to make sure all her jokes landed."
However, a source close to Kardashian said the 27-year-old is not her type. "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," the pal told the outlet.
