KARDASHIAN fans have suspected that Kris Jenner is now Pete Davidson’s MOMAGER.
This comes after the SNL star dropped his management team.
Back in April, Deadline confirmed that Pete left his management team, Brillstein Entertainment Partners.
He continues to be repped by ICM Partners, however.
Pete’s manager there, Tim Sarkes, executive produced two of his stand-up specials but is no longer repping him.
The outlet reported that the Saturday Night Live star was not taking his manager to meetings and are unsure if he will sign with someone soon.
No reason was given as to why he left his previous management team.
However, now that Pete is a free agent, Kardashian fans can’t help but wonder if momager, Kris Jenner, will be his new manager since he is dating her daughter, Kim Kardashian.
Rumors started to fly on May 12 when Morgan’s Pop Talk podcast host, Morgan Paige, shared her thoughts about it on TikTok.
“Kris Jenner might be managing a new celebrity client. When I tell you I am shook to the core,” she said in the video.
Her video then went to an audio clip of her podcast episode, in which her guest said that Pete had left his management group and their sources told them he would be with Kris.
Us Weekly exclusively confirmed that those rumors are not true.
The outlet reported that a source close to the reality star denied the claims.
“Kris is not Pete’s manager,” an insider told Us Weekly.
However, multiple sources confirmed that the momager has been giving the comedian a lot of advice.
PART OF THE FAMILY
Kris has been close to Pete, ever since he and Kim started dating in October 2021.
During an ABC News special with Robin Roberts, the 66-year-old gave her stamp of approval to her daughter’s boyfriend.
“He’s a really nice guy,” she said, adding that he was a “great partner” for Kim.
Two months into Pete and Kim’s relationship, a source told E! News, that Kris is “obsessed” with Pete and would love to go on vacation with him.
“[Kim’s] really excited about having him around and Kris is already obsessed with him,” the source said.
“The whole family is a fan of Pete’s and would love to spend a holiday with him.”
Kris and Pete get along so well that he even celebrated his 28th birthday with her, Kim, and Flava Flav at Kris’ mansion.
Pete is so close that he, along with Scott Disick and Travis Barker, sent Kris flowers for Mother’s Day this year.
She shared a photo of the bright pink and orange flowers to her Instagram story captioning it, “Thank you #petedavidson!!! Love you,” ending it with three heart emojis.
The mother of five has been the manager of her children since 2007 when the first episode of KUWTK aired.
In April 2021, she told WSJ Magazine, “First of all I think when it’s your child you go over and above anything that would be required of you if you were just a proper person getting a typical paycheck.”
“So I think for me I’ve got the advantage of just being totally dedicated to the kids and wanting the best for them and really going the extra mile and spending the extra time.”
She continued, “I’m kind of on-call 24/7, which happens constantly. … I feel like a fireman because I’m always putting out fires all day every day, on some levels. I think I’m good because they’re my kids and I think I am qualified for so many different life reasons.”
The Wall Street Journal also reported that when Kris retires, Kim will most likely take over her role.
The reality star has already been “weighing in” on family business decisions, telling the outlet: “If there’s a deal, it’s always my mom, me, and our attorney talking it over.”
When asked if she would be expected to step into her mom’s shoes, she added: “We’ve talked about it. I would assemble a team of people to take over.
“I hope it doesn’t happen for a really long time because I’m really busy,” she admitted.
Kim has been working hard to become a lawyer and hopes to have her own firm one day.
Kris doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon.
