While on his sunny walk, Pete wore a green jersey tank top and a pair of beige basketball shorts, along with black sneakers. He also sported some oversized sunglasses with a green cap, matching his shirt. The Staten Island native is currently in Cairns, Australia filming his upcoming comedy movie Wizards! He was also spotted smoking a cigarette between breaks.

Some of the other stars in the cast of Wizards! includes Orlando Bloom, Naomi Scott, Franz Rogowski, and more. The film was officially announced back in May, however, a release date has not officially been announced. It will likely premiere sometime in 2023, Elite Daily reported.

While Pete was working in Australia, Kim had spent some time with Pete before their breakup. The two had been dating for a total of nine months before they called it quits in early August. Kim and Pete’s split arrived just two weeks after she flew out to Australia and hung out with the comedian. They seemed to have been going strong for months since they first began going out last October.

Pete and Kim began their romantic relationship soon after Kim hosted SNL last October. They were first spotted at an amusement park that fall, and later out to dinner in New York City. Their relationship became a pop-culture frenzy with Kim’s ex Kanye West, publicly showing his disdain for Pete. Kanye, 45, has been very public about his feelings for Pete, often mocking him on social media.

Kanye and Kim were married from 2014 until their official split in 2022. It has been rumored that Kanye’s public opinion of Pete had put a strain on the relationship but it is not the sole reason for Pete and Kim’s split. A source EXCLUSIVELY gave HollywoodLife the details on what went down to make the couple call it quits. Despite the “huge attraction” and “strong connection” between the businesswoman and Pete, there were “a lot of things stacked against them,” according to the insider.
