It is onerous to say which was the larger shock:
That Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker held a marriage ceremony simply hours after he carried out on the Grammys …
… or that Kourtney and Travis weren’t lawfully wedded in any case. Whoops!
A probably embarrassed Kourtney does have one factor to point out for these not-legally-binding nuptials: some very candy photographs.
After days of widespread studies and lingering questions, Kourtney Kardashian took to Instagram on Wednesday.
“Discovered these in my digital camera roll,” she wrote alongside a sequence of enjoyable, cute photographs from the One Love Wedding ceremony Chapel.
“As soon as upon a time in a land far, distant (Las Vegas) at 2am,” Kourtney started the story.
Kourtney detailed that this got here “after an epic night time and a little bit tequila.”
Theatrically, she instructed her followers that “a queen and her good-looking king ventured out to the one open chapel with an Elvis.”
Kourtney admitted: “And obtained married (with no license).”
“Observe makes good,” Kourtney quipped.
The implication there’s that, given the dearth of a wedding license, this was only a “observe” marriage ceremony within the wee hours of Monday morning.
We’ll contact upon that in a second.
Kourtney’s longtime bestie, Simon Huck, threw in a playful remark.
“Who doesn’t love a Vegas gown rehearsal?” he wrote.
Like Kourtney, Simon is clearly pushing the concept — or joke — that their Vegas nuptials had been only for enjoyable.
However preliminary studies made it clear that not less than some individuals felt that Kourtney and Travis’ marriage had been legally binding.
Extraordinarily credible information shops initially printed that they had been married, which means that dependable sources — seemingly Kardashians themselves and chapel staff — thought that it was legit.
It was solely after the actual fact, as all of us realized that Clark County had not issued a wedding license earlier than the ceremony, that the story grew extra difficult.
Every state has its personal marriage legal guidelines, some various extensively in vital methods.
That is why individuals generally elope, be it to neighboring states — or particularly to Las Vegas — to do away with undesirable pink tape.
Nonetheless, even Nevada has some legal guidelines relating to marriage.
Nevada State legislation requires that you just receive a wedding license earlier than holding a marriage ceremony.
Clearly, you possibly can have as many ceremonies as you want and not using a license — however they will not forge a legally acknowledged union.
You possibly can’t get the license after the actual fact, both, to retroactively validate your marriage. These items should be performed so as.
Now, abruptly, studies are saying that this union was “at all times” meant to be a joke, a lark, and never a legally binding marriage.
Perhaps that is the case, and a variety of in any other case respected sources had been merely not in on the jest.
Or perhaps … Kourtney and Travis spent not less than some portion of this week pondering that they had been lawfully wedded.
If that’s the case, it appears affordable to take a position that they could be embarrassed that they’d a extensively celebrated faux marriage ceremony.
It solely is sensible for them to softly stroll again the story and try to retcon it into one thing that was by no means that critical.
Kourtney and Travis love one another, however whereas alcohol is welcome at many weddings, marriage ceremony planning is finest performed sober.
In the meantime, we suspect that a number of individuals in Kourtney’s life are relieved.
Everyone knows that Kris Jenner would really like for her firstborn to have a giant spectacle of a marriage … ideally one that may be monetized.
And perhaps this nuptial fake-out will hold Scott Disick from one other downward spiral for some time, if that was within the playing cards.
