Now, not a day goes by when the Kardashian/Jenner clan aren’t in the spotlight, and now that Kourtney and Travis are married, he’s in the limelight too…
They’re arguably been one of the most famous families for years now.
And with the new series of The Kardashians already out, the family has taken the spotlight to the next level…
But this time, their kids are a little older, and a lot more involved, which is exciting!
Kourtney Kardashian is known to have been straying away from the limelight in recent years.
Back in 2020 after KUWTK‘s Season 18, Kourtney revealed that she would be taking a step back from the show after constant fights with her sisters, Kim and Khloe.
She even responded to a fan telling her to “quit the damn show” on March 26 following the season premiere, she tweeted: “I did. Bye.”
Despite this, it seems she’s back in the latest season with Hulu, which began shooting late last year.
In this season of The Kardashians, fans get an inside look into Kim’s divorce from Kanye West and her newfound romance with Pete Davidson.
We see Khloe trying to patch things up with Tristan Thompson once again, while Kylie navigates her second pregnancy.
And let’s not forget, we get to see Kourtney’s relationship with Travis Barker blossom.
All eyes have been on Kourtney and Travis as they navigate their romance.
In the episodes so far, we have seen more details shared about the moment that Travis Barker asked Kourtney’s parents for permission to marry her.
According to People, in one episode, the show filmed Kim Kardashian and Kris Jenner discussing the phone call in which Travis asked Kris for permission.
Speaking with Kim ahead of Kim’s Saturday Night Live debut, Kris said: “He asked for her hand in marriage, and I was like, literally, I want to cry now.”
Kris described the moment as “so sweet and so tender.”
She then revealed that Travis visited Kourtney’s father, Robert Kardashian’s grave to also ask for his permission.
“And then he said he went to your dad’s grave and asked your dad [for permission], and I just lost it,” Kris told Kim.
“It’s all happy, I just wish your dad was here to see it. I can hardly believe that it’s the first time that she’s getting married.”
One episode also revealed that the twelve-carat diamond ring, worth a whopping $1 million, that Travis proposed with had to be repaired…
Just days after Travis got down on one knee.
The episode showed Kris visiting Kourtney after the engagement where she asks her about the ring…
“Oh my gosh, can you believe you’re engaged!” she exclaimed in the scene, before asking: “Where’s the ring?”
Kourtney then revealed that she had accidentally stepped on her ring while in her closet and that she had “a nervous breakdown” after realizing she’d broken it.
“I’m covering it because it’s actually getting fixed,” Kourtney explained to her mom, with her sleeves covering her hands. “This is probably one of the worst things I’ve ever done in my whole life, by the way.”
“I was sitting on my floor folding sweatshirts and I took the ring off and I put it next to me on the floor thinking it’d be safe right next to me,” Kourtney shared.
“I had to get something up above in my closet, and when I stepped down I stepped on the ring.”
Totally surprised by her daughter’s answer, Kris responded: “You broke your engagement ring?”
“I was hysterically crying in my closet for, like, hours,” Kourtney added. “Then I called Travis, I was like: ‘I did something really, really bad’ and he handled it the best, but it really gave me a nervous breakdown.”
“This is the most beautiful thing I’ve ever had in my life, how could I have done that?”
Fortunately, it seems that the broken engagement ring hasn’t stopped the pair with their plans for marriage as just months after their engagement…
Kourtney and Travis tied the knot… and it was the real deal!
But then Kourtney and Travis exchanged vows in a wedding chapel in Las Vegas in front of Elvis.
The pair shared pictures online, however, it was revealed that they weren’t actually married as there was no license.
However, Kourtney and Travis then exchanged for real!
And fans were thrilled about it…
“I’m happy for Kourtney. I remember how Kourtney wasn’t into weddings back then. Now… She finally found her man!” one person wrote on Twitter.
While another added: “Congratulations to Kourtney and Travis much love to both of you.”
The couple married in Santa Barbara, according to TMZ.
According to the outlet, Kourtney and Travis exchanged vows on the steps of the downtown courthouse.
The outlet reports that only a few guests, including bodyguards, were present for the vows.
Before they left driving a black convertible with a sign taped to the back that read: “Just married.”
Kourtney and Travis then had a big fat Italian wedding…
“They had to legally get married first ahead of their big Italian wedding,” a source told People.
But one thing fans aren’t thrilled about was Kourtney’s dress…
Some have labeled it the “tackiest wedding dress” they’ve ever seen.
The mom of three wore a short white bodycon dress with a veil in her hair.
While Travis dressed in an all-black tux.
Fans on social media have shared their thoughts on the dress, with one Facebook user writing: “All that money and she manages to look tacky, awful dress.”
Another added: “She has a lot of money but why didn’t she get a decent wedding dress? It looks like a costume for Halloween.”
“Can’t believe with all her money she chose to wear THAT.” a third wrote.
A fourth replied: “I am amazed she thinks that dress looks good.”
And that’s not the only thing she’s been slammed for.
Kourtney and Travis have come under fire for their constant PDA, and even their kids are speaking out.
Now the pair have been pretty handy since they first got together, which has clearly been pretty hard on her kids who she shares with her ex, Scott Disick
Mason, twelve, Penelope, 9, and Reign, 7 have had to adapt to this new normal, and it seems they don’t like their constant kissing.
However, Kourtney did bring up their “affectionate” relationship in episode 2, defending her’s and Travis’ PDA.
“Kissing and hugging is not a bad thing,” she said. “I’m actually grateful that my kids can see a loving, affectionate relationship because they haven’t seen that their whole lives.”
But clearly, her kids don’t agree, as they seem pretty grossed out by their antics, understandably.
This week’s episode of The Kardashians saw Penelope and Reign telling the couple to stop “French kissing” at the dinner table.
Kourtney can be seen playing table tennis with Penelope and Reign before Travis comes over and the pair immediately start making out.
In front of her kids.
Penelope quickly shouts: “Mom! No kissing!”
Travis, somewhat respectfully, apologizes, while Kourtney asks for “just one” more kiss.
“What about our certificates you gave us?” Kourtney asks her daughter seemingly referencing a handmade kissing pass, to which P yells: “No!”
They were called out again at the dinner table where Kourtney Travis and both their kids were eating together.
The pair start kissing again in front of all of their kids which seems to get too much for Reign, who says: “Ew guys! Can you guys not kiss in French again?” before adding: “Can you guys please not French kiss?”
This seems to end their family dinner, as the kids leave the table.
Now, coming back to Travis’ health scare…
It all started when Barker and Kourtney were spotted by the paparazzi at West Hills hospital on Tuesday morning for an apparent health issue…
According to reports in TMZ, a medical crew at West Hills felt Travis needed additional care after he went to the hospital to be seen about a medical issue he was having…
He was taken by ambulance to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
“God save me,” Travis tweeted during the ordeal…
And his daughter was clearly worried about his health too.
On the night of his hospitalization, Barker’s 16-year-old daughter, Alabama Barker, posted on her Instagram stories with her mom, Barker’s ex-wife Shanna Moakler…
She wrote: “Please send your prayers.”
She later posted a photo holding her father’s hand in the hospital.
She shared the pic on her TikTok page, with the caption: “Please say a prayer.”
The update left many fans even more concerned for his health…
One Twitter user wrote: “Hope Travis will be okay. Sending prayers; sounds serious.”
She quickly deleted the TikTok, but later shared an update with fans.
Taking to Instagram once again, she posted another photo of her hand next to Barker’s, writing: “Thank you guys for all of the prayers and love, I appreciate you & love all of you.”
Travis’ stepdaughter Atiana De La Hoya also wrote: “Thank you for the outpouring of love and prayers sent this way. It is heard, felt, and appreciated. Xx.”
TMZ then reported that Barker was suffering from pancreatitis.
This is a condition where the pancreas becomes inflamed, causing a lot of pain in the abdomen. It can also cause vomiting and nausea.
TMZ claims that “multiple sources” close to Barker told them the condition was brought on by a recent colonoscopy.
A source has also told PEOPLE that Kourtney “won’t leave his side.”
“Kourtney was worried yesterday. They both were,” the source said at the time. “Travis was suffering from extreme stomach pain and could barely walk.”
Another insider told Us Weekly that the Kardashian family is “pretty concerned.” Adding that Travis has “been receiving an outpour of well-wishes, including from the Kardashians. He’s getting the best treatment and hopefully will be out of the hospital in the next 24 to 72 hours.”
“Kourtney is by his side and will remain by his side. His kids are very supportive as well. Alabama rushed to be by his side,” the source added.
“He and Kourtney have been asking for privacy as they battle through this together.”
But now, Travis has opened up about his hospitalization in detail…
And has even clarified that he underwent an “endoscopy, not a colonoscopy.”
“I went in for an endoscopy Monday feeling great. But after dinner, I developed excruciating pain and have been hospitalized ever since…” the singer wrote.
“During the endoscopy, I had a very small polyp removed right in a very sensitive area, usually handled by specialists, which unfortunately damaged a critical pancreatic drainage tube. This resulted in severe life-threatening pancreatitis,” he said on Twitter.
“I am so very very grateful that with intensive treatment I am currently much better,” said the singer.
After Travis’ peculiar tweet last Wednesday, it was very unclear whether it was a reference to his hospitalization or the title of his song. “God save me” – which featured on his mainstream sellout album in March.
But that’s not all… Kourtney has also slammed the media for misreporting her whereabouts…
Some media outlets sold some of Kourtney’s old pictures and even claimed the reality star was “out running errands” the day after her husband’s health scare.
“And to the paparazzi who sold pictures of me ‘out and about’ while my husband was fighting for his life… these were photos actually taken weeks ago (I can’t even remember the last time I wore that sweatsuit in the photos)… I didn’t forget about you…” she wrote on her Instagram stories.
The star said she was beside her husband the whole time, and the pictures “were taken weeks ago.”
