KIM Kardashian’s boyfriend Pete Davidson is now sleeping over at her $60M mansion after meeting her kids, despite Kanye West forbidding him from visits.
The reality TV star, who is set to reveal all about their relationship in the family’s new Hulu show, had been taking things slow with Pete, but an insider claims their relationship has now stepped up a level.

Recent photographs show the Saturday Night Live star with her eldest daughter, North, cruising around Scott Disick’s gated community in LA in her pink electric car, close to Kim’s house.
A source told The Sun: “Pete has secretly been around Kim’s kids for weeks. He loves hanging out with them and makes them laugh, Kim felt it was time.
“Despite some people thinking their relationship is just a rebound for her, they are actually fairly serious, she just wanted to take it slow amid her divorce from Kanye.
“Their relationship has accelerated recently and he is now staying at her mansion on occasion instead of the Beverly Hills Hotel.
“Kanye is just having to deal with it, he’s not happy but he needs to accept that she’s moved on and Pete is going to be in her life.
“Kim is careful what she tells the kids and when he comes over, but he’s no longer staying at arms length from the family.”
The insider added: “She is hoping things calm down a little now Kanye has stopped his public rants on social media and is taking the time to heal.”
The Sun has reached out to Kim’s rep for a response.
Allowing Pete, 28, to spend time with North is not the first time Kim has gone against Kanye’s wishes when it comes to raising their kids.
In addition to 8-year-old North, the exes share kids Saint, six; Chicago, four; and Psalm, two.
Pete’s pal Dave Sirus previously shared a text conversation between the star and Kanye in which he told him he “will never meet” his kids.
The comic told him: “And you as a man. I’d never get in the way of your children. It’s a promise. How you guys go about raising your children is your business not mine. I do hope one day I can meet them and we can all be friends.”
In a now-deleted post, Kanye, 44, shared a screenshot of the message exchange, along with the caption: “No, you will never meet my children.”
Since Kim filed for divorce from Kanye in February 2021, the hitmaker has made repeated public pleas to get her back, but has now moved on with influencer Chaney Jones, who fans feel is the spitting image of Kim.

She said: “I am a relationship kind of girl, for sure, and I wouldn’t be with someone if I didn’t plan on spending a lot of my time with them.
“Obviously, I want to take my time, but I’m very happy and very content. And, it’s such a good feeling to be at peace.”
Her mom, Kris Jenner, also gushed about her new beau, telling host Robin Roberts: “Pete’s great. He’s a really nice guy,” while sister Khloe added, “He just makes her laugh. And she laughs all the time.”
Meanwhile, Kim admits in the first episode of the new Kardashians show that she actually got Pete’s number at the Met Gala in September 2021.
“I ran into Pete Davidson at the Met and I was like, ‘I am so scared. I don’t know what I signed up for,'” she recalls of their conversation.
“And he’s like, ‘Can you read cue cards? You’re good. You’re good.’”
Kim hosted SNL a month later on October 9 and kissed Pete during a sketch in which they starred as Aladdin and Princess Jasmine.
