Kim Kardashian spoke highly of her now-ex-boyfriend Pete Davidson in her sizzling new Interview magazine profile.
“He’s a cutie,” the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” alum, 41, gushed in her “Kim Kardashian Bares All” cover story.
“He’s literally such a good person; they don’t really make them like him anymore. I’m excited for what he has coming up.”
Page Six can exclusively confirm, however, that the interview took place prior to the couple calling it quits.
On Aug. 5, sources told Page Six that Kardashian and Davidson, 28, had “a lot of love and respect for each other” but found that “long distance and their demanding schedules made it really difficult to maintain a relationship.”
The Skims founder and the “Saturday Night Live” alum decided at the time to just be “good friends” after nine months of dating.
Prior to the breakup, Kardashian regularly shared kind words about her then-beau.
In March, the reality star “liked” a tweet that praised Davidson for being “respectful” amid the comic’s feud with her ex-husband Kanye West.
The tweet from filmmaker James Gunn, who worked with Davidson on the 2016 movie “Suicide Squad,” read, “For the record, Pete Davidson is one of the nicest, sweetest guys I know. A truly generous, tender & funny spirit, he treats everyone around him with respect.”
Kardashian also reiterated those sentiments in an episode of her family’s Hulu series, “The Kardashians.”
She told a group including Ellen DeGeneres, Portia de Rossi and Scott Disick during a small gathering that Davidson is “truly the sweetest, nicest human being on the planet.”
Davidson also paid Kardashian compliments during their time together.
In a series of heated text exchanges with West, 45, the “King of Staten Island” star called his then-girlfriend the “best mother” he had ever met.
“What she does for those kids is amazing and you are so f–king lucky that she’s your kids mom,” he continued. “I’ve decided im not gonna let you treat us this way anymore and I’m done being quiet. Grow the f–k up.”
Kardashian and the “Gold Digger” rapper, who became legally single in March amid their ongoing divorce, share North, 9, Saint, 6, Chicago, 4, and Psalm, 3.
