AceShowbiz - Kim Kardashian has connected with Pete Davidson's pal Orlando Bloom following her split from the comedian. The reality TV star and the actor were spotted hanging together at an event for Kendall Jenner's tequila brand, Tequila 818, in Beverly Hills on Wednesday, August 17.
At the event, which was attended by a number of A-listers such as James Corden and Kendall's relatives, including sisters Khloe Kardashian and Kylie Jenner, mom Kris Jenner and her beau Corey Gamble, Kim was seen having an intense conversation with Orlando. The two looked friendly as they greeted each other.
In a picture obtained by TMZ, Kim, who wore an all-black outfit, could be smiling up at Orlando, who donned a blue suit jacket. The "Pirates of the Caribbean" star laughed as he grabbed the SKIMS founder's hand in a friend-like handshake.
Their meeting arrives after it was reported that Pete leaned on Orlando for support following the comedian's breakup from Kim earlier this month after nine months together. The two have been working together in Australia to film the upcoming movie "Wizards".
According to HollywoodLife, Orlando initially tried to avoid mentioning the breakup to "keep things professional," but so many people working on the movie were "concerned" about Pete after learning about his split. "One of the first people who approached the funnyman about it was Orlando while they were working in Australia together," a source told the site. "Orlando and Pete have become very close these past several weeks so Pete felt comfortable opening up to him."
Of Orlando's advice to Pete, the source spilled, "Orlando explained how he's been in the same situation and to try and not take things too hard. He said whatever is meant to be, will be, and to focus on doing him for the time being" and then "once he goes back home, if he wants, he can try to work to repair their relationship. Until then, Orlando explained to just give Kim some space and reconnect when the time feels right."
"Pete is so thankful for Orlando stepping up and showing his support. It meant the world to him," the source shared. It's said that the "Saturday Night Live" alum's work also "helped distract him."
