It's been nearly a year since Pete Davidson and Kim Kardashian pulled the plug on their surprising age-gap romance. Now, we're finally watching all the drama unfold during the third season of the socialite's Hulu reality series. While she doesn't reveal exactly what led up to her and the comedian going their separate ways, Kim does make it known that her ex-husband, Kanye West, definitely had a hand in the split.

"Breakups are just not my thing," the mother of four ranted to little sister Khloé Kardashian and longtime friend Scott Disick during a recent episode. "I’m just proud of myself. We had talks and talks. We had been talking about it. It was both of us just communicating really well about it. It’s obviously sad. Nine months is a long time. I don’t have random hook-ups and relationships," Kim added, revealing that she and Davidson put no shortage of effort into making things between them work.

Of the tumultuous period the New Yorker spent being berated by Kanye West online, Kardashian says she felt "a lot of guilt." She further acknowledged, "Pete went through a lot because of my relationship." Though she recently said that she's ready to get back on the market, the 42-year-old noted elsewhere on The Kardashians that she's still waiting to find someone who can put up with the drama that comes along with her life.

"I go back and forth in my feelings sometimes, like, ‘Oh my God, who’s going to want to deal with the (drama)?'" the SKIMS founder pondered. "But my person will be like, ‘F*ck all that. It’s going to be hard, but we’re together, and we’re going to do this.’ So I’m just waiting for that person." Do you think that Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson had a chance at lasting if Kanye West didn't meddle in their relationship?
