When given a choice between the “Saturday Night Live” star and Kanye West, it seems that Jeff Bezos chose his side in the feud when he asked Pete to join him on a Blue Origin space flight.
Jeff Bezos Heads To Space With Pete Davidson After Kanye West Shade
Although the “Donda” rapper has been taking shots at Pete for dating his ex-wife Kim Kardashian, Kanye also took the time to shade Jeff Bezos over the Super Bowl weekend back in February.
In a now-deleted Instagram post, Kanye wrote, “THANKS SHADE ROOM FOR ALWAYS SHOWING LOVE THANK YOU FOR HELPING ME TO CONTROL MY OWN NARRATIVE AND NOT WRITING ME OFF WHEN A TEAM WINS THE SUPER BOWL WE DON’T COMMENT ON HOW SWEATY THEY GOT OR HOW MUCH PAIN THEY SUFFERED IN THAT GAME ITS ABOUT TAKING HOME THAT TROPHY SO WHEN I GET ON MY GRAM IM NOT AFRAID TO GET SWEATY OR TAKE A HIT FOR MY FAMILY THIS IS NOT A RANT THIS IS CALLED FREEDOM OF SPEECH I AM A FORM OF MEDIA BEZOS BOUGHT THE WALL STREET JOURNAL AND WILL STILL NEVER HAVE THIS LEVEL OF INFLUENCE NO MATTER HOW MANY DINNERS HE DOES WITH MY WIFE AND SKETER AND PAGE SIX STOP USING BAD PHOTOS OF ME YALL THAT WHOLE OFFICE WOULD DIE TO GO ON A DATE.”
Although Ye claimed that Bezos bought the Wall Street Journal, Bezos actually bought The Washington Post for $250 million back in August 2013. Either way, it seems to be plenty enough reason for Bezos not to bring Ye into space with him.
Is Pete Davidson Heading Into Space To Get Away From Kanye West?
A source told Page Six that Pete is close to signing a deal that will take him for a trip to space. He and girlfriend Kim Kardashian were spotted having dinner with Bezos and his longtime partner Lauren Sanchez at the billionaire’s Los Angeles estate.
A source for Pete told the outlet that “Pete is excited” and revealed that “They haven’t signed a contract yet, but it looks like it’s going to happen. The details are being finalized.” The source added that Pete “got on really well with Jeff when they met.”
Although it’s not clear when Pete will head into space, it will likely be later this year, as per the source.
It Won’t Be ‘Eazy’ For Pete To Resolve His Spat With Kanye West!
The news comes a day after Kanye West uploaded his music video for “Eazy” on Instagram. The lyrics to the song include the line “God saved me from that crash/ Just so I can beat Pete Davidson’s a–.”
In the video, a clay version of the rapper can be seen putting a bag over a character’s head. The character looks suspiciously like the “Saturday Night Live” star. He then ties up the character and drives him out to an abandoned area where he buries him up to his neck. He later holds up the decapitated head in a move that even has his fans concerned.
One friend of the “SNL” comedian told Page Six that “This is, for real, really scary.”
On Wednesday night, Davidson made a quick return to Instagram before he deleted his account again. The friend explained that “Pete doesn’t have a social profile, so most of the time he doesn’t even know what people are saying or doing.”
It’s unclear if Pete has seen the video, but space is definitely one place that Kanye can’t follow.
