For me, it seemed that the world stopped spinning on its axis for a second when Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker got together. It’s a crossover that I personally didn’t see coming, though maybe I should have. The bougie-girl-meets-skater boy trope is a well-worn storyline these days, one that seems to be on the rise.
In any case, Kourtney and Travis appear to be extremely in love and I’m enjoying each and every extra development. So when I heard the news that the pair may have eloped in Vegas, I wanted answers. Let’s interrogate these damn rumours! A run-through of the evidence as follows.)
Kourtney Kardashian posts couple photos in Vegas with a telling caption
Kourtney – no stranger to Instagram PDA – posted these adorable photos of her and her honey in Vegas. The caption “what happens in Vegas” (hmmm!) is accompanying these pics, which for a reason known only to Kourtney herself, get more blurry as they go along. A chaotic photo dump, I must say. Now, these photos alone wouldn’t be enough to spark wedding rumours, but then...
Enter: Kourtney’s hair stylist’s post points to a Vegas wedding
Kourtney’s hair stylist Glen Coco (great name) appears to have dropped the bombshell that these two may have just gotten hitched.
Posting a near-identical series of photos to Kourtney’s, the stylist wrote, “…NOWWW I understand why ppl tie the knot in Vegas. There’s nothing like love AND a good time,” accompanied with a wedding chapel emoji and a love heart emoji. But (and we’re getting in the weeds here), eagle-eye fans noticed that the love heart emoji was previously swapped in to replace an engagement ring emoji. CASE CLOSED. The post in question is here.
Travis Barker’s daughter enters the chat, posts that she is “so happy” for the couple
Adding fuel to the fire, Travis Barker’s daughter, Alabama, then posted a photo of Kourtney and Travis online, writing, “so happy for you guys” with two love heart emojis. I’m sorry but this is either the worst-kept secret of all time or a very clever PR stunt. At this point, I’m kinda ok with either.
Khloé Kardashian sends Kourtney a giant bouquet of flowers
Kourtney returned to her Instagram Stories to post a photo of a giant white bouquet of flowers her sister, Khloé, sent. But why is she sending them?! The timing seems coincidental.
And that, my friends, is all the evidence I have for you at this time. On a scale of 1-10, I’d say the likelihood that Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker actually got married is sitting around a 4 for me. Glen Coco’s caption is vague, Alabama could just be “so happy” for the pair in general – and the white flowers could be interpreted in a myriad of ways. Given that Kravis are forever hell-bent on reminding us of their relationship status at all times, I’m sure we’ll get a confirmed answer from the horse’s mouth soon enough.
When we do, you know where to find me.
