PETE Davidson has withdrawn from planning a trip to space.
Blue Origin has officially announced that he’s “no longer able to join the flight,” with the basic news coming in the wake of a feud between Kim Kardashian and her ex Kanye West.
A tweet from the Jeff Bezos company Blue Origin on March 17 said:
“Blue Origin’s 20th flight to New Shepard has shifted to Tuesday, March 29.”
“Pete Davidson can no longer join the NS-20 crew on this mission.
“We will be announcing a sixth crew member in the coming days.
It was previously reported that Pete would launch from Blue Origin’s facility in West Texas on March 23.
The change of plans comes amid Kanye’s Instagram ban and an ongoing battle with Pete amid his romance with 41-year-old Kim.
The comedian joined Party America CEO Marty Allen in the small space capsule.
Husband and wife Sharon and Marc Hagle will also be on the flight.
The final pair to make up the group of six were then-businessmen Jim Kitchen and Dr. George Nield, president of the Commercial Space Technology Company.
The Space Squad is also said to be curating postcards written by children as part of its Blue Origin’s Club for the Future program.
The idea was that Bezos’ rocket could send their dreams and desires into space.
Blue Origin has not disclosed fares on its rocket, designated the New Shepard, but the company’s revenue was close to $100 million last year, according to The New York Times.
While it’s not clear how much of that revenue comes from ticket sales, Jeff Bezos told the Times the company is doing “really well with its own ticket sales.”
As for Pete, the New York native famously played a character named Chad in a 2021 SNL skit, showing him visiting Mars as a colonist.
Elon Musk, CEO of Space X, was the host when that skit aired.
While this would be Pete’s first foray into space travel, Jeff has been there before.
In July 2021, he flew on Blue Origin’s New Shepard rocket.
He was joined by his brother Mark, pilot Wally Funk and Oliver Daemen – a teenage student from the Netherlands.
Other celebrities have also traveled into space on Blue Origin.
Jeff sent Star Trek star William Shatner into space in October 2021.
That month marked the beginning of Kim and Pete’s unexpected romance back on Earth.
Pete has yet to comment on his out-of-this-world aspirations and his leaving them behind.
