An October 2022 report claimed the SKIMS designer rekindled their romance, returning to one of their favorite New York hotels two months after officially splitting. But, actually, Kim revealed on The Kardashians, she was using the NYC haunt for a date with a new guy, who she's calling Fred.
"What's so funny is my friends wanted me to meet someone, so we go to New York," she told Scott Disick on the June 7 episode of choosing the undisclosed hotel. "That's like my spot, because there's a private room downstairs… But then on the internet it was like ‘Kim reconnects with Pete at this place.'"
When Scott asked, "Was he there?" Kim replied, "No. But it was the place that I would go and have my ‘secret dinners' with Pete." Now she's laughing off the rumors, joking about her ex, "He's probably like, ‘I know what she's up to.'"
A favorite meeting place is not the only thing she took away from her nine-month romance with the 29-year-old comic.
"You obviously learn from every situation," the 42-year-old said in a confessional. "And the one thing I learned from my last situation was the media made me feel like I was in like a very serious relationship so quickly. I just want to sneak around a little bit. There's nothing wrong with wanting to sneak."
She added to Scott, "I just don't want to date one person. This is my year."
That being said, Kim sees promise in her new mystery man "Drop Dead Fred," telling Scott that he "so meets the standards."
What are those standards, exactly? Well, Kim hinted that she's only interested in partners of a certain age. "They can't be too old. I don't like the old thing," she said. "But I don't like the really young thing, either."
She also has specific preferences in the bedroom, admitting that she likes to have the lights off during sex.
"It's so weird," Kim explained in a confessional. "I can walk out of a photo shoot with 100 people working on set. I can walk out like in a thong. But if it's, like, you're there with me [in bed], I'm like, 'Wait, don't look at me. Turn the lights off!'"
