The internet went crazy a few hours ago with news that Travis Barker and Kourtney Kardashian had tied the knot. However, as it turns out, the wedding is not legal. The latest reports are that the hot and heavy pair eloped in Las Vegas for fun, but it’s not official.
This means that The Kardashians star and the Blink-182 drummer are still engaged and are not yet man and wife despite previous reports.
TMZ shared the wedding news early this morning and revealed that the pair had tied the knot after their red carpet appearance at the GRAMMYs, but now we know otherwise.
Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker are not legally married
After the fanfare that ensued earlier today following news that Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker got married, things have since taken an anticlimatic turn.
The couple did, in fact, tie the knot at the One Love Chapel in Las Vegas, but the marriage is not legal. Turns out, Travis and Kourtney were just having a bit of fun when they made the decision to get hitched.
Page Six has since reported that the ceremony– which was performed by an Elvis Presley impersonator–is not legal and binding.
According to the media outlet, their sources said the couple never got a marriage license.
“They had a ceremony, but on paper, it’s not legal yet,” shared one insider.
Clark County records indicate that Kourtney and her fiance never applied for or received a marriage license.
