It looks like Pete Davidson’s desire to take the next step with Kim Kardashian might have had the opposite effect.
According to Radar, the 28-year-old actor and comedian proposed to the 41-year-old reality TV star just before they split up.

“Everything was just moving too fast,” a source told the outlet.
“Kim wanted to slow things down and instead Pete proposed.”
“He is devastated,” the source told Radar.
“Everyone warned him that he was going to push her away, but he didn’t listen.
“Remember, this is the same guy that proposed to Ariana Grande after just a few weeks.
“Pete learned nothing from that relationship.
“He falls hard and he falls fast.”
The pair has been together only since late last year, but Davidson already has several tattoo tributes to Kardashian and her children.
Davidson had even recently told talk show host Kevin Hart that he couldn’t wait to become a father.
“My favourite thing ever, which I have yet to achieve, is I want to have a kid,” he said.
“That’s like my dream.
“I’m just so excited for that chapter, so that’s kind of what I’m just preparing for now, is trying to be … as good of a dude (as I can), and develop, and get better.”
When the clip was posted to E! News’ Instagram account, followers went wild about the idea of Davidson having kids with Kim Kardashian.
“He would make a great father,” one follower wrote.
“Don’t play with my feelings like that, please,” another said.
But others wondered if Davidson had set himself up for a fall.
Kardashian, who has four children with former husband Kanye West, admitted to Ellen DeGeneres last year that she was “probably done” having kids.
Social media followers wondered if Davidson had got the memo on that one.
“Yeah, this won’t end well for Pete,” one wrote after he gushed about the possibility of fatherhood.
After news broke of the couple’s split, rumours quickly began flying regarding the cause.
One source told E! News that Kardashian didn’t want to maintain a long-distance relationship, as Davidson is currently in Australia filming the movie Wizards!
Kardashian’s whirlwind trip to Queensland clearly didn’t manage to keep the romance alive.
But the Skims founder didn’t waste time hitting back at Kanye West after news of the relationship breakdown made headlines.
West posted a mock New York Times headline reading “Skete Davidson Dead At Age 28” to his Twitter account, but it was quickly deleted.
A source told The Daily Mail that Kardashian had demanded her former hubby take the post down, saying she “won’t stand for this type of behaviour from him”.
“She has been vigorously defending Pete,” the source added after claims emerged that Kardashian dumped him because he was “too immature” for her.
One source told People the relationship simply wound down.
“They’ve definitely been slowing down,” the source said.
“Things heated up quickly in the beginning when he could travel back and forth to see Kim and spend time with her, but his schedule has gotten so packed.”
The insider added that Davidson, who met Kardashian on Saturday Night Live, was “super bummed” about the breakup.
“They really hit it off and had a ton of fun together, but it feels like it ran its course.”
As for any possibility of the two getting back together, another source told People it was unlikely.
“It was an amicable split. They had discussed ending their relationship for a bit. It wasn’t sudden,” the source said.
“And it was a mutual decision.
“Getting back together is not on the cards right now.”
