Pete Davidson’s name seems to be everywhere these days. Now, the “Saturday Night Live” comedian is taking his career to new heights – literally. Davidson, 28, is going to space next week with Jeff Bezos’s Blue Origin flight crew, the third celebrity to join one of the company’s human flight missions. Previously, “Star Trek” actor William Shatner and “Good Morning America” host Michael Strahan have served as celebrity guests on Blue Origin flights. The next flight, currently scheduled for 9:30 a.m. ET on March 23, will also include Commercial Space Technologies president Dr. George Nield, educator Jim Kitchen, SpaceKids Global nonprofit founder Sharon Hagle and her husband, Tricor International CEO Marc Hagle, according to a Monday press release. Aside from Davidson’s professional endeavors (he’s lately been absent from “SNL” while filming horror thriller film “The Home”), his personal life has kept him in plenty of headlines. Amid reality star Kim Kardashian’s high-profile split from rapper Ye (formerly known as Kanye West), reports began emerging that she began dating Davidson after she hosted “SNL” in October. Ye has made his disdain for his ex-wife’s new boyfriend evident on social media, and earlier this month debuted a disturbing music video that shows Ye killing Davidson as he reflects on his divorce and custody battle. In a since-deleted Instagram post defending the video, Ye said artistic expression is therapeutic and “protected as freedom of speech.””Art inspires and simplifies the world,” the “Donda” rapper wrote. “Art is not a proxy for any ill or harm. Any suggestion otherwise about my art is false and mal intended.”Meanwhile, Davidson and Kardashian made their relationship Instagram-official over the weekend: Kardashian, 41, shared a series of photos on social media, including a shot of Davidson lying on the ground and gazing up at a sitting Kardashian, and a black-and-white selfie of the two. There is also mention of Davidson in the first trailer for the upcoming Hulu reality show, “The Kardashians,” which debuted Monday, a month before the show begins streaming.”This is a relationship that I don’t think anybody saw coming,” Kardashian’s mother, Kris Jenner, says as a clip rolls of Kardashian and Davidson kissing during her “SNL” appearance. In one interview, Kardashian is shown texting as an off-camera producer asks: “Who are you texting, Kim? Does his name rhyme with ‘feet’?” Kardashian laughs without looking up from her phone.
