Kim Kardashian responds to Kanye West's reunion attempt with meaningful gesture

Kim Kardashian appears to have turned down Kanye West’s veiled offer of reunion, taunting him with another romantic rendezvous with her new boyfriend Pete Davidson.

Days after her rapper ex’s heartfelt desire of rekindling their love, the 41-year-old reality actress and her boyfriend were seen walking hand-in-hand in Santa Monica.

During her outing, Kardashian was all smiles, with the comedian presumably replying to Kanye, who is yearning to reunite with his children’s mother.

Kim looked stunning in an open leather skirt over leggings, elbow-length leather gloves, sunglasses, a baseball cap, and a turtleneck, and she carried a little silver bag.

Her dazzling appearance, which was her version of a casual date night attire, gave greater importance to her potential future partner.

Davidson, on the other hand, looked handsome with a t-shirt, bomber jacket, trousers, and a baseball cap that read “Uncle Paulio’s.” He had black paint on his nails.

The couple dined in a separate area before boarding Davidson’s Lamborghini SUV, which he held open for her. They were pictured laughing, and one photograph led to speculation that Davidson had a hickey on his neck.

Kardashian and Davidson have been dating since October and are having a great time together. According to rumors, Pete goes out of his way to make Kim feel special. Kanye, on the other hand, appears to be envious of his estranged wife’s romantic outing with a new partner.

Nicki Minaj And Kim Kardashian Team For SKIMS Promotion

Kim Kardashian asked artist Nicki Minaj for a favor to help promote her new Skims collection.

The “Super Bass” singer looked stunning in an SKIMS x Fendi ensemble from Kim’s collaboration with the Italian fashion house, which she paired with a patchwork coat and knee-high boots for an autumnal look.

Nicki published the photos with her 163 million Instagram followers, drawing the attention of Kelly Rowland, La La Anthony, and Winnie Harlow, among others.

It comes after Kim revealed that her shapewear collection is coming into China and will be available at Lane Crawford stores in Shanghai and Hong Kong.

“Hey everyone, I am really pleased to announce that SKIMS is officially opening in China,” she said while sporting one of the collection’s outfits.

“We’ll be at Lane Crawford (a luxury department store) in Shanghai and Hong Kong.”

“I personally hand picked so many of the things for you guys,” Kim continued, “and I can’t wait for you to feel the materials, see what you guys like… Finally, have a look at SKIMS in China.”

Kanye West shares throwback image kissing estranged wife Kim Kardashian, despite her romance with Pete Davidson

Ye is going all out to mend fences with his estranged wife, Kim Kardashian, and if that involves weaponizing their pictorial memories, so be it!!!

The man formerly known as Kanye West is having second thoughts about an old photo of himself and the missus kissing, which he shared on his Instagram account on Friday morning, along with a TMZ report about Kanye saying God will save his marriage.

As previously reported, Ye stopped by the L.A. Mission earlier this week and grabbed a microphone to let everyone know that he was trusting God to help him and Kim repair their relationship.

He went on to say that his reconciliation with Kim will serve as an example to millions of other families who were going through divorce or separation.

What about the black-and-white shot? It all started in September of this year, when Kimye and her kids went on a family vacation to the Bahamas. Kim had posted it at the time, but it was inexplicably erased shortly later. It’s clear that Ye didn’t forget about it.

Of course, Mr. West’s yearning for his wife coincides with her growing comfort level with Pete Davidson in public. They were seen out and about in Santa Monica earlier this week… with Pete sporting a hickey on his neck.

Kanye has been linked to Irina Shayk and Vinetria, a 22-year-old model, since Kim filed for divorce in February, but he appears to be focused on repairing the marriage right now.
