Kim Kardashian ‘Felt Comfortable’ With Pete Davidson Going to Space, But Not for Her

Kim Kardashian doesn’t want to go to space for a very important reason. In fact, she has four of them. The 41-year-old reality star and businesswoman talked about space travel on this week’s episode of The Kardashians.

At the time, her then-boyfriend Pete Davidson was going to go to space with Blue Origin on their 20th mission. Even though he didn’t end up going Kardashian said that she had doubts about the trip at first.

Jeff Bezos invited Pete to go to space,” she remarked. “I really can’t believe it — that he’s gonna go. It seems like such a scary concept to me.”

Kardashian talked about how she remembered the Space Shuttle Challenger exploding in 1986 killing all seven astronauts on board. This made her a little nervous about going to space, she said.

“I remember sitting in my kitchen with my dad, with my sisters,” she said. “I remember what that felt like and my parents crying.”

She also said, “It’s really scary.” But talking to Bezos who started Blue Origin and is worth a billion dollars made Kardashian feel better about going to space.

“After talking to Bezos about it and hearing how safe it is and all the testing and everything they do, I felt comfortable with [Pete] going,” she said. Even though she said she would go to space in theory it would never work out in real life.

“If I didn’t have four kids, I would absolutely go,” said the founder of SKIMS. She and ex-husband Kanye West have daughters Chicago, 4 and North, 9 and sons Psalm, 3 and Saint, 6.

Blue Origin said in March that the former Saturday Night Live star “could no longer join” the mission to space because the date of the flight had changed.

A few days later, the company said that he would be replaced by a scientist who had helped make the rocket ships for the company.

“On March 29, #NewShepard Chief Architect Gary Lai will fly on the vehicle he’s spent 18 years designing, developing, testing and flying,” the company wrote on social media at the time.

“We can’t wait for Gary—a friend, mentor and hero to all of us—to become Astronaut Gary Lai,” they added.

After dating for nine months Kardashian and Davidson broke up in August 2022. They were first linked romantically in October 2021.
