Pete and her family, appeared on their reality show, and didn’t seem to let her ex husband ’s furious – and – bother him.

Behind the scenes however, Kim’s ‘baggage’ may have been more of an issue for Pete than he let on (even if he on his body just months into the relationship).

The former couple , with reports suggesting the decision to break up was mutual – but an old friend of Pete’s thinks this is not the case.

“Kanye was picking fights and calling him names. For a man his age it was childish – a pathetic love drama.’

Fully gossiping, Johnny went on to say that ‘most’ people he spoke to in Pete’s hometown were openly saying his and Kim’s relationship ‘wouldn’t last,’ adding that ‘everyone was shocked’ when they began dating.

While Pete has been fairly tight lipped about his relationship with Kim and their break-up, the mum-of-four recently gushed about her former partner in a new interview, where she labeled him a ‘cutie.’

She added: ‘I’m excited for what he has coming up.’

‘She isn’t compromising her freedom right now.’
