Pete Davidson Reveals He Has a Kim Kardashian Candle in Bedroom During 'People (The TV Show!)' Interview

The Saturday Night Live star also refers to Kardashian as his "girlfriend" for the first time during the chat with PEOPLE (The TV Show!) host Kay Adams

Pete Davidson is clearly holding a candle for his girlfriend Kim Kardashian!

The King of Staten Island actor, 28, sat down with People (The TV Show!) this week and candidly opened up to Kay Adams from his home, and more specifically his bedroom.

When host Kay Adams asks if there was a Kardashian candle sitting on his dresser in the background, Davidson turns to look, then with a sheepish grin on his face says, "Yes, it is! That is exactly what that is."

The candle has pride of place alongside what appears to be a glass bong.

Describing the room's decoration, Davidson points out the stuffed animals on his roughly made bed and the "giant flower pillows" –– which are by designer Takashi Murakami, who happens to be a favorite of Kardashian's children and also her ex Kanye West.

"Oh great, I left my closet open," the comedian realizes mid-interview. "I'm moving, I'm in the process of moving, so it is not great over here."

Also while chatting to PEOPLE (The TV Show!) on Monday about his partnership with Hellman's Mayo for an upcoming Super Bowl commercial, the Saturday Night Live star also refers to Kardashian, 41, as his "girlfriend" for the first time.

"Well, I don't really have Instagram — I don't have Instagram or Twitter or any of that stuff," the comedian says about whether fame affects him. "So, most of my daily life is getting into cars and showing up to a set."

"Or, if I'm off, I just either hang with my friends or chill with my girlfriend inside," he continues. "So I don't do much!"

Kardashian and Davidson first made headlines in October when she hosted an episode of SNL and they shared an on-screen kiss in a sketch. They played Disney couple Jasmine and Aladdin.

Later that month, the two sparked romance rumors when they were photographed holding hands on a roller coaster ride at an amusement park in Southern California.
