The couple split sometime this week because their busy schedules "made it really difficult to maintain a relationship," the entertainment media outlet E! News reported, citing sources close to the celebrities.
Davidson has spent part of the summer in Australia working on a new movie, E! News said.
Kardashian, 41, who has 328 million followers on Instagram and 73 million on Twitter, began dating Saturday Night Live star Davidson, 28, after the two performed in a skit together on the show in 2021, sharing a kiss.
They made their relationship public in March this year, around the same time when Kardashian, who also has a clothing and cosmetics line, finalised her divorce with rapper Kanye West, now known as Ye.
Kardashian and Davidson were seen together at many public events, including the Met Gala in New York in May, where Kardashian donned the famous dress worn by Marilyn Monroe when she sang "Happy Birthday, Mr President" to John F. Kennedy at an event in 1962. But the relationship was clouded by Ye attacking Davidson on social media and imploring Kardashian to reconcile.
Kardashian filed for divorce with Ye last year after months of press reports about marital strife and as Ye battled with mental health issues. The two are now co-parenting their four children: two girls, North and Chicago, and two boys, Saint and Psalm.
It was the first divorce for Ye and the third for Kardashian, who came to fame with the US reality TV series "Keeping Up With the Kardashians," which followed the lives of her family members in Los Angeles.
After her breakup with Davidson, Kardashian's fans wondered what is next in store for her.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star filed the papers in Los Angeles Superior Court Friday through her lawyer Laura Wasser, according to TMZ, which reports that Kardashian is asking for “joint legal and physical custody” of the couple’s four children.
Rapper Kanye West and his reality TV star wife Kim Kardashian West are living separately and undergoing marriage counselling. Gossip outlets say Kardashian West is preparing to file for divorce.
Lopez and former New York Yankees baseball star Alex Rodriguez called off their engagement because “we are better as friends,” announcing the breakup on Thursday just months after denying their four-year relationship was on the rocks.
Shah Rukh took to Instagram and said, “Teaching the young ones at home the essence and sacrifice of our Freedom Fighters for our country India, will still take a few more sittings. But getting the flag hoisted by the little one made us all FEEL the pride, love and happiness instantly.
Holland said he had deleted the Twitter and Instagram apps from his phone and did not intend to post in the foreseeable future.
The message came after Spears quoted Lopez’s words in her new Netflix documentary.
Through collaborations with artists, activists, workers and organisations, her projects trace the complex connections between human exploitation and environmental crises that lie at the heart of climate change.
