Is Kim Kardashian with Pete Davidson in Australia? It doesn’t seem so (Picture: Gotham/Getty Images)
In what may be the most baffling story of the day (so far) an Australian cafe has been caught out ‘lying’ after claiming Kim Kardashian popped in for some brunch alongside boyfriend Pete Davidson this week.
Former Saturday Night Live comedian Pete, 28, is currently Down Under filming Wizards! and it was claimed his reality star mogul girlfriend, 41, had joined him.
Despite outlets flocking to the area to catch a wild glimpse of Kim, sadly this tale appears to be a case of celebrity spotting too good to be true – fake news, if you will – with the stars’ teams shutting down claims Kim is in the country after the cafe spun quite the wild yarn she’d visited the business.
Workers managed to hoax the country into believing the billionaire was in Australia, telling local press in an interview Kim and Pete had dined in their cafe, adding juicy details including claims the pair requested a private room after security demanded staff turn in their phones to ensure privacy.
Botanica Cafe Bar Kitchen manager Matt Black told ABC Far North: ‘They sent their security detail in, and they had a little look at the menu, then asked if we had room for a couple of private guests, who are hoping to take over the inside.
‘Sure enough, in walked bloody Kimmy K and Pete Davidson.’

Going on to describe the pair as ‘super cool and respectful’, he added: ‘We had to put our phones out on the counter.’
Hey, it’s believable, we’ll give them that.
Pouring cold water on this ‘celeb spot’, Pete’s reps told Daily Mail Australia: ‘Pete is currently in production in Australia without Kim,’ while a source close to Kim also confirmed she hadn’t been in Australia in years.

And while it’s true Pete is in Far North Queensland for the acting gig alongside Orlando Bloom, recent photos of him enjoying a sun-soaked tropical getaway with his amore, posted to Kim’s Instagram this week, were not taken in the country and instead on a trip to Tahiti.
Kim was also pictured in Los Angeles on Tuesday night around the time she was supposedly noshing with Pete in Australia 11,000km away, either making this spot too good to be true or confirming Kim is a time traveller, which, when it comes to this woman, we’re not ruling out.
No harm no foul though, and the cafe appeared to be enjoying the added publicity boost as it posted a video on Instagram, as per reports, of television crews assembling on the street outside, alongside the caption: Chasing that scoop!’
