Pete Davidson is here to save the day! The comedian saved girlfriend Kim Kardashian from what would've turned into a viral meme after she almost slipped on her gown while walking into the 2022 White House Correspondents’ Dinner on Saturday, April 30.
Kardashian, 41, and Davidson, 28, were holding hands when she almost slipped back and took a nasty tumble in her silver Balenciaga gown. Luckily, having the Saturday Night Live comic by her side served her well, as she grabbed onto him with her spare hand while in the lobby of the Washington Hilton Hotel.
In Kardashian style, she recovered smoothly and maintained a smile while Davidson seemingly ensured she was OK, as he was seen slowing down on their route to the exclusive event.
The moment was captured by an eyewitness, who posted the now-viral video to Twitter. "I literally just saw Kim Kardashian and Pete Davison and she almost fell," the online user wrote alongside the clip.
The SKIMS founder and Davidson made their red carpet debut as a couple at the Washington, DC, event last weekend, with the power duo taking the red carpet by storm for a second time at the 2022 Met Gala on Monday, May 2. (While Davidson joined the businesswoman at the premiere of the family's Hulu series, The Kardashians, they didn't walk the carpet together.)
"He’s here to support me. It’s my thing," Kardashian explained to E! News at the premiere. "I don’t think it’s his thing to be all up here with me. So, I’m just so happy he’s here."
But for their latest star-studded outing, Davidson made his presence known beside Kardashian. The couple's arrival at Manhattan’s Metropolitan Museum did not disappoint, with Kardashian stunning in Marilyn Monroe's "Happy Birthday Mr. President" dress while Davidson looked dapper in a simple black Dior suit and Prada sunglasses.
However, The King of Staten Island actor still let his woman have her time to shine. As seen in a trending TikTok video posted by @meghan_smith1, after the lovebirds — who were first linked last year — posed together for a few snaps on the carpet, Davidson stepped away so the blonde bombshell could shine on her own.
He then hilariously turned around to the paparazzi on the other side of the carpet and threw up a peace sign.
