Kim Kardashian’s boyfriend, Pete Davidson, mysteriously missed a space flight days before launch.
The Saturday Night Live star was set to take off on Amazon founder Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin on Wednesday, March 23.
Davidson will no longer be on the flight and a replacement crew member will be announced soon, the company said.
The flight has now been rescheduled to March 29.
“Pete Davidson can no longer join the NS-20 crew on this mission,” a company spokesperson said in a written statement. “We will be announcing the sixth crew member in the coming days.”
The 28-year-old comedian has been traveling to space with Party America CEO Marty Allen, real estate mogul Marc Hagle and his wife Sharon, Jim Kitchen and Dr George Nield.
During the 11-minute journey over New Shepard, the astronauts will fly over the Kármán Line, a 62-mile aerial and internationally recognized boundary of space.
They will also experience several minutes of weightlessness during the journey.
Last July, Blue Origin completed New Shepard’s first manned flight with four people on board.
The crew included Jeff Bezos, Mark Bezos, Wally Funk and Oliver Daemen.

Star Trek legend William Shatner, 90, became the oldest person to fly into space in October.
Blue Origin’s most recent manned flight, in December, carried six people including Laura Shepard Churchley, daughter of Alan Shepard, the first American to fly in space.
It also has Good Morning America host Michael Strahan on board.
The space mission will take off from Blue Origin’s Launch Site One in West Texas.
Davidson has made headlines in recent weeks after going public with her famous romance with Kim Kardashian.
The couple has finally gone official on Instagram after posting a series of candid snaps together last week.
Ms. Kardashian then candidly discussed her blossoming affair in an interview with Ellen DeGeneres.
“I think it’s just that in life, whatever it is, I encourage my friends and the people I love to be happy and I worked hard for that,” she explained on the Ellen DeGeneres Show.
“And I went for it! I was like ‘You know what? I’m in my forties, like that.”
