The Kardashian family has officially descended on Italy in anticipation of Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker’s lavish (and third, for anyone keeping track) wedding ceremony. In case you were wondering though, Kim Kardashian‘s boyfriend, Pete Davidson, will reportedly not be joining her as a plus one for the festivities.
According to intel from a Kardashian source, it doesn’t sound like the issue is Pete being welcome at the nuptials though. Apparently, he’s skipping for a very relatable reason: He has to work (ofc, since that work is performing live on SNL, it’s not like he can just get someone to cover his shift). The above-mentioned source told Us Weekly that Pete “will be on Saturday Night Live” this weekend while Kim is in Europe with her fam to celebrate Kourtney and Travis’ love story.
The May 21 episode is actually SNL‘s season 47 finale and reportedly marks a big professional milestone for Pete—news broke this week that this weekend’s episode will be his last as a regular cast member on the show. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Pete is one of four members of the Saturday Night Live cast expected to leave the series at the end of the season (the others are Aidy Bryant, Kyle Mooney, and Kate McKinnon).
FWIW, Pete’s SNL departure isn’t a huge surprise. Last year, he and costar Chris Redd actually openly discussed leaving the sketch show during a THR roundtable. During the chat, they talked about Kenan Thompson’s record run as a member of the cast (at the time, he was in his 18th season on the show) and both agreed that they couldn’t fathom sticking around that long.
“I’m surprised I made it to seven,” Pete said at the time. “I’m ready to hang up the jersey.”
