Wedding or publicity stunt? Kardashian, Barker exchange vows in Las Vegas

Updated April 5, 2022 - 11:43 am

Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker have participated in a wedding ceremony in Las Vegas.

Or an event that looked like a wedding.

Multiple media sources are reporting that the couple were married at 1:30 a.m. Monday, or late at night after Sunday’s Grammy Awards show at MGM Grand. TMZ was first to report the news.

“I didn’t know who it was until they pulled up. I advertise as 24-hours but they wanted to make sure I was still there. They paid and they requested Elvis Presley, that was mandatory,” said Marty Frierson of One Love Wedding Chapel, as quoted in People. “I called back 5 minutes later and was like, I got an Elvis, and there they were.”

But industry insiders have yet to find an actual marriage license for the couple, though the pair claimed to have been issued one. A wedding chapel rep said it very well could be a publicity stunt. The couple are reportedly taking part in several commitment ceremonies.

Clark County spokesman Dan Kulin said the county clerk’s office had not issued a marriage license for the couple as of 8 a.m. Tuesday. Kulin added that in Nevada, a couple must have a marriage license before getting married “meaning, a couple could not legally get married and then get a marriage license that would be valid retroactively.”

The 42-year-old Kardashian and 46-year-old Barker were in wedding attire. The couple had their own photographer for the event.
