The former SNL star kept his eyes shielded from the sun with a pair of sunglasses.
It comes after it was reported that Kim, 41, ended her nine-month romance with Pete due his ‘immaturity and young age.’
In addition to battling long distance as he works on a project in Australia while she is based in the US, a source told Page Six, the reality star was ‘totally exhausted by this relationship and other things going on in her life.’

‘Pete is 28 and Kim is 41 — they are just in very different places at the moment,’ the insider says.
They added: ‘Pete is totally spontaneous and impulsive and wants her to fly to New York, or wherever he is on a moment’s notice. But Kim has four kids and it isn’t that easy. She needs to focus on the kids.’
Davidson was seen bonding with his colleagues this Friday – the same day he and Kim broke up. In footage exclusively obtained by DailyMail.com, Pete was seen playing basketball with the crew on his film Wizards! in their Australian studio.
Despite the fact that he had split from his girlfriend that very same day, a production insider noted that Pete ‘looked relaxed, like he didn’t have a care in the world. He was just chilling and shooting hoops.’

The former couple, were first linked in October last year weeks after she made her hosting debut on Saturday Night Live, where the now exes shared an on-screen kiss.
Pete has spent months filming his upcoming movie Wizards! in Australia, where Kim visited him in July for a romantic getaway in the Daintree Rainforest.
However their luxury stay at a lavish five-star ‘eco lodge’ in the jungle was evidently not enough to salvage the couple’s relationship.
News of their split comes a day after a source told People that the ‘long distance hasn’t been easy for Kim’ as Pete continued shooting Wizards! abroad.
An insider has now explained to E! News: ‘They have a lot of love and respect for each other, but found that the long distance and their demanding schedules made it really difficult to maintain a relationship.’
Kim’s breakup with Pete comes as she is still ironing out the legal details of her divorce from her third husband Kanye West, with whom she shares four children – North, nine, Saint, six, Chicago, four, and Psalm, three.
Although Kim initially filed to end the marriage in February 2021, the process is still underway, and this week Kanye’s fifth divorce lawyer so far withdrew from the case.

Kim got married for the first time at 19, eloping to Las Vegas with music producer Damon Thomas, who was a decade her senior and whom she later accused of beating her. Damon staunchly denied the allegations.
Between marriages, she dated the dashing singer Ray J, who became her co-star in the world-famous sex tape that helped propel her to the stratospheric stardom she enjoys today.
Kim’s second wedding occurred when she was already a global celebrity – she was married to basketball player Kris Humphries for just 72 days before they split.
She and Kanye ultimately got married in Florence in 2014 and are now the co-parents.
‘Pete is totally spontaneous and impulsive and wants her to fly to New York, or wherever he is on a moment’s notice. But Kim has four kids and it isn’t that easy. She needs to focus on the kids,’ a source told Page Six of why they split
Despite Kanye’s furious text message to Pete: ‘NO YOU WILL NEVER MEET MY CHILDREN,’ Pete reportedly did become acquainted with Kim and Kanye’s little tykes.
‘Her family played a big part in helping Kim navigate the situation as Kanye made it clear he didn’t want anyone around his kids that Kim was with,’ an Entertainment Tonight source said in June.
‘Kim and her family discussed how they’ve always navigated being a blended family well and that Kim had to do what was right for her and Pete. The kids and Pete get along very well and Kim seeing him be so great with them only made her fall in love with Pete more.’
