The Kardashians season two is set to begin streaming September 22 on Hulu, but fans hoping to grab a bit more insight into the relationship between Kim Kardashian, 41, and former beau Pete Davidson, 28 may be disappointed.
A source told The New York Post’s Page Six column ‘He’s in the background, but the reality world is not built for people like Pete.’
The Bodies Bodies Bodies actor appears briefly in the season two trailer, but the insider says otherwise he is not expected to be seen onscreen much in the show due to his being a private person.

The rapper continued his persecution after learning of the breakup by posting a mock New York Times story on Instagram which featured the headline, ‘Skete Davidson Dead at Age 28’.

The TV star, who shares children North, nine, Saint, six, Chicago, four, and Psalm, three, with Kanye, has remained on good terms with Pete, but the insider explained that the reality stary is ‘not okay with this type of behavior and won’t tolerate her loved ones being treated like this.’
