Kourtney Kardashian posted photos from her fake Vegas elopement: cute?

Kourtney Kardashian finally said something about her (fake) elopement in Las Vegas late Sunday/early Monday morning. Kourtney and Travis Barker were in Vegas for the Grammys, and following the awards show, they went to one of those 24-7 chapels and “got married.” Except they didn’t have a license, so none of this was a legal wedding. From Kourtney’s IG:

Found these in my camera roll.

Once upon a time in a land far, far away (Las Vegas) at 2am, after an epic night and a little tequila, a queen and her handsome king ventured out to the only open chapel with an Elvis and got married (with no license). Practice makes perfect.

So that clears up a few things. I kind of wonder why they even bothered? I mean, I guess it was a fun experience and they looked like they were enjoying themselves. As it turned out, Kourtney didn’t wear the same black Et Ochs jumpsuit she wore to the Grammys. She changed into a Versace bustier from 2012. I’m kind of offended that she wore YELLOW to her fake wedding? I mean, come on. Say what you will about the Kardashians, but all of them look good in white.

Kourtney joined her sisters on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night as well. This appearance made news for a variety of reasons, but they really didn’t say much new stuff. They’re all in promotional mode.

    My best friend and her husband renewed their vows at the Elvis Chapel in Las Vegas. We wore leopard print mini-dresses with long black gloves, feather boas and tiaras. The men wore the loudest Hawaiian shirts possible and Fat Elvis sang “A hunk, a hunk, of burning love” – it was a hoot.

    Yeah, ohmygosh I just found these on my camera roll – isn’t that nuts?

    Yes, we’re all shocked that you have photos that you took a few days for your fake marriage publicity grab.

    I’m assuming she wore that bustier because it has a giant cross on it and she somehow thought it made her look more rock and roll.

    I do not understand why so many interviewer’s think the new show is so newsworthy? It’s literally the same shiz, different day and channel.

      Yes her whole outfit and vibe is an attempt to match his but it’s not really working.

  3. Kate says:

    I think it’s plausible they thought the license would be provided by the venue, that was certainly my belief until I actually had to deal with getting a license for my ceremony.

    • ElleV says:

      Absolutely! they may not have realized they needed a license in advance and lots of people get married without a license and then get the paperwork done later and it doesn’t make it “fake”

      I seriously considered having my wedding ceremony in France without a license and waiting until I travelled back home to get the official papers to avoid having to deal with unnecessary international bureaucracy – we ended up getting married with a license closer to home for unrelated reasons, but it wasn’t any more “real” than our initial plan!

    They seem to genuinely be happy together and in love, so good for them.

    This focus is kind of weird to me. Not re: Kardashians, they are living embodiments of the uncanny valley. I’m married for “real”, but a lot of my friends and my mom’s friends did not get legally married. Sometimes because they just don’t like the state, sometimes for reasons like not being able to afford losing disability or insurance benefits. I don’t go around telling them their marriages are fake. I had two ceremonies – one with just our parents and a rabbi and another one two years later when we could afford a party for everyone. We got a license for the first one, but I would have still considered it a real marriage if it was only a ceremony with our rabbi.

    • Pandabird says:

      Right?! You can be married with or without a marriage certificate. That document just makes it legally binding. This is all a joke to Kourtney, she’s soooooo eDgY aNd CoOl.

    • Nic says:

      We did that during covid because I wanted to make sure my grandma would get to see us get married (we’d been together ten years at that point). My grandma is still here but my step dad passed away recently so I’m glad we did it even if some people consider it “fake”. Im in my last semester of graduate school and we’ll go do the legal paperwork after I graduate.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        I think that’s lovely @ Nic!!!

        @ SophieJara, I don’t think it’s anyones business what and how we are with our partners! I have met people who aren’t married, by choice, and they are closer than those with the paper. What people do with their life choices is no one’s business!!

        Why so much judgement? FFS, it’s not harming THEM, so they need to just STFU!!

    He can smile (and actually looks cute doing it). I wouldn’t have recognized him.

  7. Sue E Generis says:

    I don’t follow or like the Kardashians, but I feel like I’ve never seen Kourtney smile so hard? She seems genuinely thrilled and animated. Something I’ve never seen in her before.

    Renewed my vows in the little white chapel in Vegas and left in a helicopter for the Grand Canyon and came back to all the lights on the main strip. Just the 2 of us. I had the time of my life.

    I plan to subscribe to Hulu just for this!

    I’m not buying it was a fake wedding. I think they really did get hitched, she’s pregnant, possibly twins, they’ll have at least one big official ceremony soon. I think maybe twins b/c Kourtney is in her 40’s, doing IVF, it would mean she would have more children than Kim and there are no twins yet in that huge family.

  11. Sal says:

    Kind of a red flag how she molds herself into his ideal GF.

  12. Songs (Or It Didn't Happen) says:

    I thought Kate Middleton said it was okay to wear yellow to weddings.
