KIM Kardashian and boyfriend Pete Davidson will be spending more time apart due to an unexpected delay in the comic’s new movie, which he is shooting in Australia.
Former Saturday Night Live star Pete, 28, has been in Cairns since last month working on new film Wizards, which was due to end August 3.
However, filming was put on hold after a crew member collapsed with Covid and will now only be completed on August 11.
It means the actor will have to wait to be reunited with Kim amid rumors a reconciliation with ex-husband Kanye West may be on the horizon.
A source exclusively told The Sun: “Filming on Wizards has been delayed because a crew member contracted Covid.
“Pete is fine but filming has been delayed by a few days which means it will be longer before he sees Kim.
“He is very bored and upset that bars and restaurants in Cairns close at 10pm.
“Previously, extras didn’t wear masks, but now they have to when not filming.”
The Sun has reached out to Kim and Pete’s reps for comment.
As The Sun exclusively revealed, 41-year-old Kim traveled to Australia earlier this month to spend time with her boyfriend.

The reality superstar flew in her private jet to join Pete in North Queensland before departing on July 19.
The pair weren’t spotted out and about, and an insider revealed to The Sun at the time: “She has said she intends to stay with Pete in his room at the resort he’s staying at and not do much else!
“She told the team with her, ‘Don’t expect to see much of me in a few days!'”
PETE TAKES IT EASY
While production was on hold, the prankster reportedly retired to a resort on the Great Barrier Reef called Lizard Island.
It is believed he spent time there with Wizards co-star Orlando Bloom.
Our source said: “It’s the best place for them, they’re in a place where they get the least amount of Covid.
“If Pete or Orlando got the virus, it would destroy production, so they need to be protected as much as possible.”
Pete is also said to have struck up a friendship with British actress and Wizards co-star Naomi Scott and her soccer player husband Jordan Spence, who was on holiday in Australia.
KIM AND KANYE BACK?
Meanwhile, rumors have been circulating among fans that the Hulu star may be reconciling with the father of her four children, Kanye.
The former couple finalized their divorce in March after nearly seven years of marriage.
Although Kim has moved on with Pete, some Kardashians fans still believe she will get back together with the Grammy-winning rapper.
They pointed to everything from Kim wearing Kanye’s hat to the star watching the hitmaker’s favorite movie as proof the ex-couple was giving their marriage another chance.
However, Kim’s visit to Pete earlier this month seemed to dispel any hint that their relationship is on the rocks or that she might be getting back together with 45-year-old Kanye.
