At the time of Cudi’s dinner, there was widespread buzz about the small, seemingly random guest list, leading “The Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon to ask Davidson for the evening’s backstory.
When Cudi invited Davidson to the dinner, the comedian said he expected it to be capped at three people: himself, the rapper, and his manager. So, he gave the restaurant his credit card to treat Cudi for the meal.
“Cudi goes, ‘Hey, Kim and Kanye might come by.’ And I was like, ‘That would be awesome.’ And then I was like, ‘Oh no,'” he said on an April 2019 episode of the late-night show, laughing.
Davidson said he had a “really good time” with Kardashian and Ye, calling them the “cutest couple ever” and “very, very sweet people.” Thankfully, the bill didn’t end up being “as bad” as he expected, he quipped.
“It’s not like it’s Applebee’s, you know?” Davidson joked, adding, “It’s Nobu, which is like 77 Applebeeses.”
The KKW Beauty founder — who shares children North, 8, Saint, 6, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 2, with Ye — went on to file for divorce from the Grammy winner years later in February 2021.
As for Davidson, he’s been romantically linked to celebrities including Ariana Grande, Kate Beckinsale, Margaret Qualley, Kaia Gerber, and Phoebe Dynevor.
