Pete Davidson beats Kanye West to space: Comedian may fly Jeff Bezos' Blue Origin flight
Kanye West has been after Pete Davidson ever since he started dating Kim Kardashian but seems like the 'SNL' star has more lofty ambitions
Pete Davidson and Kim Kardashian were papped on a dinner date with Jeff Bezos at his LA mansion in January 2022 and it looks like they were talking business. According to the latest reports, Pete will be flying to space in Jeff Bezos’s Blue Origin flight. Though the dates or deal have not been confirmed sources can tell that the ‘SNL’ actor is pretty excited for the journey. A deal is in the works between Jeff and Pete and more details will be followed soon.
The news of the comedian taking the space flight comes amid his drama with Kanye West. The rapper has been constantly taking digs at Pete ever since he started dating his estranged wife Kim Kardashian. Most recently, the 44-year-old rapper dropped the visuals of the song ‘Eazy’ where his animated avatar was seen kidnapping and burying Pete alive with a bunch of roses. The move came hours after Kim was declared legally single by the court.

Pete Davidson to sign deal with Jeff Bezos
Jeff Bezos, who is one of the richest men on the planet, earlier took Michael Strahan and ‘Star Trek’ icon William Shatner on his Blue Origin space flight in December 2021. Jeff himself boarded Blue Origin's New Shepard rocket in July last year where he was joined by his brother Mark, pilot Wally Funk and Oliver Daemen- a teenage student from the Netherlands. Pete is the latest public figure to join the exclusive club.
According to Page Six, sources said, “Pete is excited” adding, “They haven’t signed a contract yet, but it looks like it’s going to happen. The details are being finalized.” The insider further stated, “He got on really well with Jeff when they met” concluding that the schedule for the same is still being finalized. Interestingly, Pete had played the role of Mars colonist in a skit when Elon Musk had debuted on ‘SNL’ last year. Pete with his new lover Kim had spent some quality time with Jeff in January over a fancy dinner at his swanky pad.
Pete taking the Blue Origin flight seems to be good news for the comedian as he might get some space from Kanye's social media attacks. In his song ‘Eazy’, Kanye brutally dissed the actor while rapping, “Rich-a** kids, this ain't yo' mama house/ Climb on your brother's shoulders, get that Top Ramen out/ God saved me from that crash/ Just so I can beat Pete Davidson's a**”. The final frame of the video sends out a message reading, “EVERYONE LIVED HAPPILY EVER AFTER, EXCEPT SKETE YOU KNOW WHO. JK, HE’S FINE” with the word “SKETE” scratched out. Kanye has, so far, not commented on the news of Pete taking the space flight.
