Despite rumors about the supposed reason for Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson's breakup, a source close to the

former couple assures that the end of the relationship may be temporary, while the actor

finishes his filming in Australia and Kim resolves her situation with Kanye West.

According to In Touch Weekly magazine, there is 'a lot of respect and love' between

the two, and they remain in constant contact, although they have left the relationship in standby mode.

"Kim has nothing but love and respect for Pete. He is a great guy and needed this time to get his head on straight."

The insider added that the main reason for the breakup may have actually been the harassment 

he kept experiencing from Kanye West, and that it was making Kim quite upset, as it was related to both of their children.
