Kardashian and the comedian first connected as they shared an onscreen kiss for a sketch during the SKIMS mogul’s SNL hosting debut on Oct. 9, 2021.

Kardashian later recalled the moment on Amanda Hirsch’s Not Skinny But Not Fat podcast in April 2022. “When we kissed, I was just like, ‘Hmm!’ It was a stage kiss, but it was still like, a little zing. It wasn’t anything like a super-crazy feeling. I was just like, ‘Hmm,’ and then I was like, ‘Wow, I really haven’t kissed anyone else in 10 years, so maybe I’m just like being stupid and it’s just nothing and it’s just a stage kiss,'” she said at the time.

“Or, if I’m off, I just either hang with my friends or chill with my girlfriend inside. So I don’t do much,” he continued, referring to Kardashian with the title publicly for the first time.
