UPDATED 4/5, 12:05 p.m. ET: Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker didn’t get legally married, Page Six reports.
The couple had a ceremony “for fun,” and never applied for a marriage license, a source told Page Six.
“They had a ceremony, but on paper it’s not legal yet,” Page Six quotes an “insider” as saying. Kourtney is expected to release a statement about the nature of the wedding in the near future.

TMZ writes that the couple decided to hold an impromptu wedding ceremony at 1:30 a.m. local time on Monday. They were accompanied by their own photographer and security, and were allegedly pronounced a married couple by an Elvis impersonator. Sources told the outlet that the couple plans to have “several” other ceremonies in the future, and they’ll presumably be less low-key than Monday’s wedding.
The couple announced their engagement in October. Photos of the moment showed Barker pulling out a ring on a beach, surrounded by roses and candles. They started dating in December 2020, and made their first red carpet appearance together by September 2021 the following year. The pair have been very public about their love for one another, and she gifted the Blink-182 drummer and MGK collaborator his “dream car” for his 46th birthday last fall.
Recently, Barker defended Kourtney after she was criticized for sporting a Cannibal Corpse t-shirt. The photo caused such an uproar, in fact, that the death metal band’s frontman Chris Barnes called them both “posers.”
“To speak on that, that’s the lamest shit ever,” said Barker in an interview with Revolver. “Obviously my fiancée doesn’t listen to Cannibal Corpse, but I do. I grew up loving them. For [someone] to mention that in a negative light—fucking lame, you know? She’s wearing it because she’s cold. She’s not claiming she knows every song. But I do! I bought every album, and I learned how to play every album.”
