Kim Kardashian and Staten Island native Pete Davidson have reportedly gone their separate ways. According to People, the duo split up after dating for nine months.

The pair hooked up in October 2021, after the reality star hosted an episode of “Saturday Night Live” and did a sketch with Davidson in which they shared a kiss. A source told People Kardashian was attracted to the younger comedian because he could “make her laugh,” and a romance between the two of them developed quickly, with their first dates taking place on Staten Island.

According to E! News, which first reported the break-up, “the former couple continues to have a lot of love and respect for each other,” but the long-distance nature of their romance and their busy schedules “made it really difficult to maintain a relationship.” Neither Davidson or Kardashian have yet to comment publicly on the demise of their relationship, as of publication time…….

One of the New York Mets may have gained some new fans on the Upper West Side after revealing what his favorite Big Apple bagel spot is. In a recent interview with Newsday, outfielder/first baseman Mark Canha said his go-to spot for bagels is “Bagels & Co. at 79th Street and Amsterdam Avenue.”

“Once you find one you don’t need to keep looking,” said Canha.

According to Patch.com, Bagels & Co. is a “classic styled NYC spot that serves up bagel flavors such as plain, cinnamon raisin, garlic, poppy seed, onion, pumpernickel, sesame, blueberry and everything.” The price is also right, starting at $2 a bagel.

Canha, who is hitting .273 with seven home runs and 34 RBIs in his first year with the Mets, also lives on the Upper West Side. The Mets slugger also rides the subway to Citi Field for many of his home games.

Canha told Newsday, “It’s practical, it’s cheap, it’s pretty reliable. It drops me right off at the stadium. Why not? It’s New York. I feel like that’s what you do.”……….

Katie Holmes and her boyfriend musician and producer Bobby Wooten III, were spotted in Washington Square Park on Aug. 6, according to harpersbazaar.com. The “Dawson’s Creek” actress and Wooten smiled as they held hands walking through the park in Greenwich Village.

The couple made their red carpet debut at the opening night of Holmes’ directorial debut, Alone Together, during the 2022 Tribeca Film Festival.

Holmes recently told Bazaar, “We live in a world where we have a premiere and you want to look nice, and it turns into being a fashion person, and I’m like, ‘Well, I just like to look nice, I’m not really a fashion person.’ We all just want to look good,” said Holmes…….
