Kourtney Kardashian revealed the reason that prevented her from legally marrying Travis Barker in Las Vegas earlier this week.
On Wednesday, during an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live alongside her Kardashian-Jenner sisters and mum Kris Jenner, the 42-year-old explained what was stopping her and the Blink-182 drummer, 46, from saying “I do”.
“Kourtney, I think you’re the Kardashian of the week this week because you went ahead and got fake married,” Jimmy Kimmel said to Kourtney on his late night show.

“Well, it’s not called fake married,” Kourtney quipped. “There was no possibility to get a marriage license at that hour.”
the Kardashians star went on to explain that she figured everything in Vegas operated 24/7 but found out the clerk’s office had closed for the evening and would reopen at 8am.
“We just did it anyway,” she explained. “It’s what’s in the heart.”
Kourtney and Barker unofficially tied the knot at around 1.30am local time on Monday, April 4 in a 30-minute ceremony, after attending the 64th Grammy Awards†

“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,” Kardashian wrote under photos of the two at One Love Wedding chapel.
according to Page Sixofficial wedding celebrations are planned for later.
Barker popped the question back in October 2021, beachside with a ring of red roses and white candles at a Montecito, California, hotel. But no wedding date had been announced. The couple’s penchant for PDA has been legendary since they hooked up.
