Watch: How Kim Kardashian REALLY Feels About Kanye's Public Pleas

This Valentine's Day continues to get more complicated.

Kanye "Ye" West piled on the public pleas to estranged wife Kim Kardashian to bring their family "BACK TOGETHER"—even appearing to sending her a truckload of red roses on the romantic holiday. 

However, she seems to have other plans, stepping out with new flame Pete Davidson at Cipriani NYC on Sunday, Feb. 13. The couple was spotted sharing their first public kiss (aside from that scripted one on Saturday Night Live), which topped off their intimate weekend that also included a date night at Lilia's restaurant in Brooklyn. 

Following their outings, Ye once again expressed his desire to reunite with his ex, who filed for divorce nearly a year ago. "THANK YOU GUYS FOR YOUR SUPPORT OF MY FAMILY," he wrote on Feb. 14 in response to a fan comment. "MY FAMILY MEANS MORE TO ME THAN ANY OTHER ACCOMPLISHMENT IN LIFE." 

Amid his public declarations, two sources close to Kim exclusively tell E! News her true thoughts on the situation.

Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson's Pre-Valentine's Day Date

"Kim is trying to ignore Kanye's social media posts and pleas to get back together," one shares. "She is really happy right now and is having a lot of fun. She likes where she is at in life and is loving this new chapter."

The insider explains that her and Ye's four children continue to be her main focus: "As long as the kids are safe and taken care of, that's all that matters to her."

Kim will "always be cordial and communicate" with Ye when it's comes to their kids, the insider says. "Kim is hopeful Kanye will be able to move on in the future and accept they aren't getting back together," the source goes on. "She wants him to be happy." 

As for Pete, a second source notes that he "doesn't really spend time on social media," so he is not totally "aware" of all the drama.

"He doesn't want to get involved or be in the middle of Kim and Kanye," the second insider shares with E! News. "He supports Kim with whatever she needs and they try not to focus on it."

In fact, Pete has "sympathy" for what Ye is going through, per the second source.

"Kim is very good at compartmentalizing and not letting these things get to her," the second source adds. "She is able to shut it off and ignore when she has to."


Last week, Pete spoke to People about why this Valentine's Day is so special to him, now that he has put a label on his romance with the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star. "I don't think I've ever had a Valentine's Day thing, really," the SNL comedian told the outlet. "So this would be the first year that I'm thinking about Valentine's Day plans, I guess." 

Meanwhile, Ye will not likely be spending the lover's holiday with Julia Fox, as they recently ended their relationship after one month. The Donda 2 artist instead took to Instagram on Valentine's Day to share a photo of Pete and Kim during their New York date night. 


E! News has reached out to reps for Kim, Pete and Ye for comment.
