Kim Kardashian was once the most popular member of her family. However, with the success of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, many other Kardashian-Jenners have become famous in their own right.

Kim has even been accused of following in the footsteps of her older sister, Kourtney Kardashian. This came after fans noticed the similarities between the men they are dating.

Who are Kourtney Kardashian and Kim Kardashian dating?

Kourtney is currently dating Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker. The two of them have been friends for years, though they did not date until January 2021. Since then, they have been taking over the internet with their many PDA-filled outings. In early November, Kourtney and Barker announced their engagement.

While Kourtney’s romance with Barker was heating up, Kim was going through a divorce from ex-husband Kanye West. Recently, though, she has been linked to comedian Pete Davidson. Romance rumors between them first got started after they shared a kiss on Saturday Night Live and were caught holding hands at Knott’s Berry Farm. They have since been spotted together in various cities, leading some fans to believe their relationship is now official.

Some fans have noticed the similarities between Barker and Davidson. Although they both work in different entertainment fields, they are both lean men with tattoos.

According to Mirror, some fans have even accused Kim of copying Kourtney’s love life. One person even allegedly said, “Kim Kardashian couldn’t let Kourtney have all the shine so she grabbed Pete Davidson.”

However, it does not seem like Kim is paying attention to the negativity. A source told People, “Pete can be super charming and Kim loves the attention.” The insider also shared that Kim“is having fun and enjoying life.”

Hollywood is a small place, and the Kardashian-Jenner’s inner circle seems to be even smaller. Ever since Kourtney and Barker began dating, some people have pointed out that Barker used to be romantically linked to Kim.

In Barker’s 2015 memoir, Can I Say: Living Large, Cheating Death, and Drums, Drums, Drums, the musician called Kim an “eye candy” and “f***ing hot.” The two of them reportedly dated for a bit.

“We went to dinner, we went to lunch,” Barker wrote. “You might think I would be doing the worst things with this girl because of her tapes, but it was the exact opposite of any other encounter I’ve had with a woman: with Kim, I wanted to be nothing but a gentleman to her. It was so weird.”

Barker shared that their romance was “sweet” and that they “never touched each other.” However, according to Barker, “it just wasn’t meant to be.”

Barker also talked more about Kim to Us Weekly in 2015, “How could you not stare at Kim? Mind you, I enjoyed hanging out with Paris, but I love curvy girls. Kim was eye candy. I was in no way disrespectful to Paris, but I couldn’t keep my eyes off Kim.”
