Pete Davidson No Longer Going to Space on Blue Origin Flight

It appears that Pete Davidson will not be going to space after all.

Just three days after announcing that the “SNL” comedian would be joining their next flight, the Jeff Bezos-founded company announced on Thursday night that the date had been changed and Davidson would no longer be a part of the excursion.

Blue Origin’s 20th flight of New Shepard has shifted to Tuesday, March 29. Pete Davidson is no longer able to join the NS-20 crew on this mission,” the tweet reads. “We will announce the sixth crew member in the coming days.”

The reason for Davidson’s departure from the flight is unclear.
Davidson’s representatives did not immediately respond to Variety’s request for comment.

The flight was supposed to take place on March 23rd.
Party America CEO Marty Allen, philanthropist, and real estate mogul Marc Hagle and his wife, Sharon Hagle, University of North Carolina professor Jim Kitchen, and Dr. George Nield, president of Commercial Space Technologies round out the team.
The excursion will be the private aerospace company’s fourth human flight, and it’s 20th overall.

Blue Origin has brought a slew of celebrities aboard its missions since its first successful human flight in July 2021.
When he boarded Blue Origin’s second flight, 90-year-old “Star Trek” actor William Shatner broke the record for the oldest person to travel to space.
Michael Strahan, the host of “Good Morning America,” most recently braved the journey.

Davidson has recently been in the spotlight due to his relationship with Kim Kardashian and the ensuing drama with her ex-husband, Kanye West.
In terms of his work, Davidson continues to appear on “SNL” and co-stars in the upcoming romantic comedy “Meet Cute” with Kaley Cuoco.
