Pete Davidson suffered a wardrobe malfunction as he stepped out in Cairns on Sunday. The former Saturday Night Live comedian, 28, had forgotten to zip up the fly of his blue pants before leaving his hotel.
He seemed unaware of the gaffe as he displayed the peace sign for paparazzi. Pete completed his look with a navy jumper, matching cap and beige boots. The funnyman who popularised the term ‘Big D**k Energy’, or BDE, during his relationship with pop star Ariana Grande was all smiles as he posed for photos with fans outside the hotel.
Pete recently jetted to Far North Queensland to shoot his new movie Wizards! He is set to join Orlando Bloom, Naomi Scott, Franz Rogowski and Sean Harris in the film by Australian writer-director David Michôd.
The production will inject an estimated $14.7million into Queensland’s economy. Wizards! will follow two hapless pothead beach-bar operators, played by Davidson and Rogowski, who run into trouble when they stumble across stolen loot that they really should have just left alone.
Brad Pitt’s production company, Plan B, is behind the film. While Pete is in Australia filming Wizards!, his A-list girlfriend Kim Kardashian has not joined him and is still in Los Angeles with her children.
However, false claims went viral last week that Kim was staying with her boyfriend in Far North Queensland. Matt Black, the manager of the Botanica café in Edge Hill, Cairns, falsely claimed to local media that Kim and Pete had dined at his restaurant last Wednesday.
Mr Black spun an elaborate yarn about the pair’s security team allegedly asking café staff to place their phones on the counter for the duration of their date so no one could take photos of them while they were dining.
Mr Black did stress, however, that the couple and their entourage were ‘super cool and respectful’ to all staff members. However, a representative for Pete shot down this fake account, saying: ‘Pete is currently in production in Australia without Kim.’
A source close to Kim also confirmed she hadn’t been in Australia in years. Mr Black later broke his silence to insist he was simply a ‘larrikin’ and that it was all ‘a joke that backfired’.
After a flurry of local press coverage, the alarm was first sounded when it emerged Kim had been pictured in LA last Tuesday – just hours before she was supposedly seen brunching 11,000km away in Far North Queensland.
