Pete Davidson wants to set the record straight, but not about the rumors fans really want to know about.
During a performance on Late Night with Seth Meyers on Monday, the Saturday Night Live star playfully alluded to his recent outings with Kim Kardashian West by joking about a “rumor” that people keep “whispering” about.
“I want to raise something,” Myers started the conversation. “I feel like I want to confirm whether it’s real or a rumor. This is something you’ve read a lot about in the press.”
Davidson played along and replied, “I wanted to talk about this because there are a lot of people I walk by, people whispering and looking at me. But it’s true.”
But after all, much to the fan’s dismay, the conversation wasn’t about Kardashian West, 41. Instead, Davidson used the joke to promote an upcoming project.
“L to do that there will be a show on Tubi,” he said of the upcoming animation show The Freak Brothers.

While Kardashian West was never mentioned in the Late at night Just kidding, Davidson has been spotted on numerous occasions spending time with the reality star.
The pair first sparked romance rumors after spending time together earlier this month at Knott’s Scary Farm in Southern California with Kourtney Kardashian and her fiancé Travis Barker. While there, Kardashian West and Davidson were photographed holding hands on a roller coaster ride. (Davidson and Barker know each other through their mutual friend Machine Gun Kelly.)
Last week, they were both spotted separately heading to Zero Bond, a private Manhattan club, for dinner. And the night before, Davidson took Kardashian West out to his native Staten Island for a private dinner.
After their outing at the amusement park, a source told PEOPLE that Kardashian West and Davidson are just “friends hanging out,” although a separate source noted that they “have chemistry.”

The KKW Beauty mogul shares children North, 8, Saint, 5½, Chicago, 3½, and Psalm, 2, with ex Kanye West. Since she filed for divorce from the 44-year-old rapper in February, the former couple has focused on peaceful co-parenting.
As for Davidson, PEOPLE confirmed in August that the comedian had split from Bridgerton star Phoebe Dynevor after about five months together. He was briefly engaged to Ariana Grande in 2018 and was previously in a relationship with Kaia Gerber, Kate Beckinsale and Cazzie David.
