Kim Kardashian ‘feels comfortable’ with Pete Davidson going into space, but not for her

Kim Kardashian doesn’t want to fly into 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 about to go into space with Blue Origin on their 20th mission. Although he ended up not going, Kardashian said she initially had doubts about the trip.

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

Kardashian told how she remembers the space shuttle Challenger exploded in 1986, killing all seven astronauts on board. That made her a little nervous about going into space, she said.

“I remember sitting in my kitchen with my dad, with my sisters,” she said. “I remember how it felt and my parents were crying.”

She also said, “It’s really scary.” But talking to Bezos, who started the $1 billion Blue Origin, made Kardashian feel better about space travel.

“After I talked to Bezos about it and heard how safe it was and all the tests and everything they were doing, I felt comfortable with [Pete] I’m going, she said. Although he said he would go to space in theory, it would never happen in real life.

“If I didn’t have four kids, I would definitely go,” said the SKIMS founder. 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 was “no longer able to join” the space mission because the flight date had changed.

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

“On March 29th #NewShepard Chief Architect Gary Lai will fly the vehicle he 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 split in August 2022. They were first romantically linked in October 2021.
