In October, Davidson appeared with girlfriend Kim Kardashian during a segment for “SNL.”

At the time, Davidson also skipped the “SNL” afterparty at L’Avenue at Saks. John Mulaney reportedly spoke at the party “about how ‘SNL’ can be very unforgiving at times,” a source told Page Six at the time.

“He’s the best and has treated me with nothing but love,” Davidson said of Michaels.
