Kourtney Kardashian looks sensational in a sheer red dress as she steps out for dinner

Kourtney Kardashian kicked off the celebrations for her rumoured wedding to Travis Barker by heading out for dinner with her famous family in the Italian village of Portofino on Friday. 

The newlyweds legally tied the knot at a Santa Barbara courthouse on Sunday, but are reportedly set to marry in a lavish ceremony this weekend.

The reality personality, 43, was joined by her famous entourage including Khloe, 37, and Kim, 41, who themselves nearly stole the spotlight in their own scantily-clad ensembles.

Kourtney showcased every inch of her incredible figure in a sheer red dress with fur detail, which she teamed with matching lace-up heels.

She was followed by Travis who flashed his inked skin in a black jacket which he wore unbuttoned, while looking effortlessly cool in a pair of sunglasses. 

As they left their dinner, Travis and Kourtney continued to pack on the PDA, with the musican leaning in for a kiss as she sipped from a glass of champagne.

As well as Kris, Kourtney’s sisters, Khloe and Kim Kardashian and Kylie and Kendall Jenner, Kris’ partner Corey Gamble, and her three children will be in attendance.

Elsewhere, Kourtney and put on a loved-up display as the reality star wore a top with her husband’s band Blink 182 emblazoned on the front as she held hands with him on a romantic boat ride.

Kourtney and Travis have reportedly rented out the entire castle, which was built during Roman times as a military defence, and will be celebrating their nuptials over the next four days.

And that is not all as they are also planning another huge reception for their friends back in Los Angeles ‘in the near future’.

The lavish European wedding will be the third time the loved-up couple have tied the knot, following their unofficial nuptials after the Grammys in Las Vegas and their legal ceremony in Santa Barbra.

Kourtney and Travis shared their first photos as newlyweds with their Instagram followers earlier this week.

Less than 24 hours after legally tying the knot in Santa Barbara, the reality star posted a slideshow of black and white photos from their big day.

‘Till death do us part,’ the mother-of-four captioned the snaps, featuring her straddling her spouse on top of a black convertible with ‘just married’ on the bumper before getting into the car and sharing a passionate kiss.

The lovebirds, who became engaged in October 2021, exchanged vows with a small number of loved ones and their security, including her maternal grandmother Mary Jo ‘MJ’ Campbell and Travis’ dad Randy, at the weekend.

After getting hitched, the reality star and drummer were seen driving off in a vintage car.

For her big day, the mother-of-three was seen wearing a short white dress with a plunging neckline and red heart adorned on the bodice and a traditional veil over her dark tresses, which were pulled back for the occasion.

Wild PDAs, IVF struggles, and THREE weddings: A look back at Kravis’ whirlwind romance history

They’re saying ‘I do’ for a third time this weekend in Portofino, Italy in front of a close circle of family and friends. Here, DailyMail.com takes a look back at the three weddings, wild PDAs, IVF struggles and whirlwind romance of Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker… 

Travis’ first Kardashian crush on Kim 

Having been a friend of the family for years, Travis Barker first showed his interest in the KarJenner clan when he confessed to first being attracted to Kim Kardashian – not Kourtney – back when she was an assistant to Paris Hilton around 2006.

‘How could you not stare at Kim? Mind you, I enjoyed hanging out with Paris, but I love curvy girls,’ Travis admitted in 2015. ‘Kim was eye candy. I was no way disrespectful to Paris, but I couldn’t keep my eyes off Kim!’

Travis went on to say he spent time with Kim in their Calabasas neighborhood and while he had a ‘crush’ on her, he said ‘nothing ever happened.’

Getting to know the family 

Travis then made several appearances on Keeping Up with the Kardashians while he was still married to ex-wife Shanna Moakler, cementing his status as a true Kardashian family friend. 

His daughter Alabama revealed in October 2017 that she had been bonding with the Kardashians, along with her father, though she did not specifically mention Kourtney.

 ‘Actually, the other night I had dinner with all of them and they were really sweet,’ she said at the time. Travis shares Alabama and a son Landon with his ex Moakler, who he was married to from 2004 to 2008.

Dating rumors 

Kourtney and Travis first sparked romance rumors when they were spotted on what appeared to be a date together in 2018 Los Angeles. 

For their evening out, the duo attended an evening service at the famed celebrity Hillsong Church, and then later went out for a vegan dinner at Crossroads where they dined with Kourtney’s pal Larsa Pippen.  

At the time, Kourtney had broken up with French model Younes Bendjima just a few months before.

From friends to lovers

Their relationship was confirmed in January 2021 after growing closer during the pandemic, as Kourtney recently revealed she made the first move while the pair were enjoying a friendly movie night together.

‘I was definitely always attracted to Travis. I think it was just the right time in my life,’ she said on the show this year, adding: ‘We were texting and I put it out there, like flirtatious conversation.’

After Travis failed to make a move and went to put on a second movie for them to watch, Kourtney took action: ‘I was like, “I don’t have time for this movie marathon,’” so I made the first move.’

Their relationship is going from strength to strength, with the lovebirds happily putting racy public displays of affection on social media.

PDA power couple 

‘Kravis’ became Instagram official for Valentines in February 2021 with Kourtney posting a picture of the pair holding hands, but that was just the start of the wild PDAs that followed. By April, Travis posted a blurry snap of them making out, while they later revealed their signature move on Kourtney straddling the Blink 182 drummer in the Utah desert.

Their PDAs reached a fever pitch in August last year, when Scott Disick reached out to her ex Younes Bendjima on Instagram after seeing Kourtney straddle Travis on a gondola. He later apologized. 

They made their red carpet debut at the VMAs in September last year, and their display of tongue-kissing for the cameras set the tone for many more PDA-heavy events including this year’s Met Gala.

IVF struggles

While the couple’s romance has seen many highs, Kourtney has revealed they’ve also faced heartbreak as she’s struggled to have a child with Travis. 

In an episode of the Kardashians, Kourt confessed their doctor had taken them down ‘this road of doing IVF’ saying ‘it hasn’t been the most amazing experience.’ 

The reality star is mother to Mason, 12; Penelope, nine; and Reign, seven — with her former partner Scott Disick, whom she dated from 2005 until 2015. 

A romantic proposal 

Travis popped the question in October to Kourtney, whisking her away to a beach in Montecito, California, as the special moment was captured for the Kardashians Hulu reality show. 

Later, it was revealed there was drama as Kris Jenner made the call not to include Kourtney’s children in the happy moment – which resulted in her daughter Penelope becoming upset. 

‘I woke up all night thinking it was a dream,’ Kourtney gushed on Instagram at the time.

Three weddings 

Not content with just one ceremony, Kravis kicked things off with a drunken Las Vegas wedding in April this year after partying at the Grammy Awards. But the wedding was void as it was revealed the loved-up couple did not have the correct paperwork. 

In the run up to their big wedding in Italy, Kravis legally tied the knot in Santa Barbara in May with her grandmother Mary Jo “MJ” Campbell present, as well as Travis’ father Randy Barker. The pair drove off in a vintage lowrider convertible with a ‘Just Married’ sign.

However, the couple really pulled out the stops for their big bash in Portofino renting out an entire castle for their family and friends. The pair chose the historic house museum Castello Brown located on a hill above Portofino harbour for their official big celebration.

Kourtney later showed off her figure in a tiny black bikini as she joined her rocker beau and son Reign seven, in jumping into the Ligurian Sea during the fun family day out.

And ahead of their big day, the couple enjoyed some quality time with their children as they swam and rode jet-skis on their hired mega yacht, with mum-of-three Kourtney stunning in her swimwear.

She later ditched her T-shirt for her skimpy bikini as she had a blast with her family on the water.

The star was seen holding hands with Reign and Travis as they launched themselves into the water, with her youngest child seen in a life jacket.

Kourtney then joined her son as they whizzed about on the sea, with the youngster seen taking the reigns as he helped steer.

The couple seemed in good spirits as they milled about with their children on the vessel, with Travis’ daughter Alabama and Kourtney’s daughter Penelope seen wrapped up in white towels.

At the time of her prior Vegas wedding, Kourtney took to Instagram to share a gallery of snaps from the nuptials as she said that some drinking lead to the impromptu wedding in Sin City.

She captioned the gallery of retro snaps to her 168million followers: ‘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).’

She also confirmed that it was not an actual legal ceremony as they did not have a marriage license but it will help them for their actual wedding as she wrote ‘Practice makes perfect.’

Under her leather jacket Kourtney wore a yellow 2012 vintage Versace bustier with a huge crystal gothic cross down the middle as she and her man packed on the PDA by sharing several kisses.

They both also sported a pair of black designer sunglasses, with Travis opting for Enfants Riches Déprimés shades. The musician opted to show off his body art by going shirtless under the outerwear.

Kourtney’s social media post was met with much joy from her celebrity family and friends in addition to her loyal followers as many commented on the post sending their love.

Travis commented on the post with two people wearing formalwear emojis with a female gender symbol in between as younger sister Kim replied with four house emojis.

The chapel’s wedding packages range in price from $99-$699, with the couple purchasing the One Love Affair package for $199, paying extra for the Elvis impersonator, according to In Touch.

The priciest package includes a limo, photo shoot, a wedding concierge, choice of love song, a fresh rose bouquet and garter belt for the bride, wedding video and a rose petal entrance, but the Kravis’ budget ceremony was a simpler affair which lasted 30-40 minutes.

It was a private early morning wedding, according to TMZ, who reported that the pair did not allow the venue to take any photos and opted to bring their own photographer and security.

Kourtney and Travis famously were engaged during a romantic beachside proposal in Montecito, California, in October.

Barker’s daughter Alabama, now 16, shared a first look at the massive sparkler — which was oval-shaped and appeared to be at least 15 carats and designed by jeweler Lorraine Schwartz — as they enjoyed an intimate engagement dinner with family and friends after the proposal, with additional footage shared throughout the evening. The ring is estimated to be worth at least $1million.

The proposal took place at 6:30 pm; family members from both sides were in attendance to usher in the happy couple.

The loved-up duo were longtime friends for a decade, before they began dating in the latter part of 2020, and went Instagram official just after Valentine’s Day 2021.

On the fourth episode of The Kardashians, which aired last month, Kardashian’s three children had an emotional reaction to her engagement.

Shortly after the proposal, Kourtney FaceTimed with all of her kids, with Penelope taking it the hardest, crying on the phone before hanging up on her mother. 

Back in August, Kourtney had also given the drummer the strength to fly for the first time in nearly 13 years following a plane crash that killed four and left him with burns on 65% of his body. He shared a snap of the pair embracing by Kylie Jenner’s private jet after he took his first flight (to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico) in August and wrote ‘anywhere with you.’

Prior to Barker, Kourtney had dated Algerian model Younes Bendjima from 2016 to 2018, and was in a very tumultuous on-off relationship with Disick.

Kourtney and Scott first began dating in 2006 and were in a very on-off relationship for nearly a decade that was wrought with cheating and substance fueled outbursts that tore them apart. They finally called it quits in 2015, but he had made it known numerous times he would be holding out for her.

Scott confessed that Kourtney would ‘always be a priority’ and had tried to rekindle a few times. During the Keeping Up With The Kardashians reunion (at which point she was already dating Barker) Kourtney spoke about her final straw breaker with Scott and said: ‘I think the substance abuse was the deal-breaker.’

He had begrudgingly given her and Barker his blessing as he said: ‘I think if you really love somebody, you want them to be happy no matter what. So I do give her a blessing to be happy,’ but seemed to air his real feelings just months later in a DM to her ex Younes.

The message from the Talentless designer slammed Kourtney’s PDA with Barker as he shared a photo of the pair making out, and read: ‘Yo is this chick ok!??? Broo like what is this. In the middle of Italy.’

Disick was said to be ‘riled up’ because her new romance was affecting their relationship — which was close and good relative to co-parenting. ‘It’s more strained than ever,’ an Us Weekly insider said.

And PEOPLE reported that he could not accept she was ‘happy with someone else.’ ‘Scott has always had a difficult time accepting that Kourtney is happy with someone else. He is especially threatened by her relationship with Travis.’

Prior to Kourtney, Barker had been married to Shanna Moakler from 2004 to 2008. They share two biological kids Landon and Alabama and Barker had stepped up as a father figure to her eldest Atiana De La Hoya, from her relationship with Oscar De La Hoya.

Before that he was married to a woman named Melissa Kennedy for nine months. He filed for divorce in August 2002.

The blaze was reported Thursday evening around 6:35 pm local time and quickly spread throughout the two story building in Hollywood. 

Fire investigators were on the scene as the British actress and singer returned to the site where an as yet un-named person lost their life on Friday morning.

The synth-pop artist hugged record producer Jamal Rajad Davis who is credited with sounding the alarm about the fire. 

‘I was my own smoke detector,’ Jamal told the Los Angeles Times. ‘I ran to my room and grabbed my stuff and left my door open, trying to call my cats out to follow me.’

Jamal said he tried to go back in to save his four cats, but none of the animals made it. The structure housed several recording and rehearsal studios.

A hip-hop artist who goes by the name Maximilian told KABC-TV that he lost everything. 

‘I opened the door, I saw smoke coming from across the hall. I immediately reached over to grab a jug of water,’ he explained. ‘I threw it at the door, flames bursted (sic). I tried to go back to my room and grab anything I could, but flames were everywhere, and we ran out the building, and that was it.’ 

The artist estimates his loss at about $50,000. 

It was Sharon Osbourne who first revealed her oldest daughter’s narrow escape and resulting injury in an emotional social media post Friday morning.  

The reality star, 69, shared the shocking news on Instagram, tagging a Los Angeles Times story about the deadly incident.

‘It is utterly heartbreaking that someone lost their life today in this fire & we are sending our prayers to this person & their family. What happened today was beyond horrific,’ Sharon said.

Sharon described the building as a ‘creative hub for music in Hollywood’ also lamented the loss of equipment that belonged to the various artists who worked there. 

She also called for better fire safety at such buildings, although it’s not yet known if any codes were violated. 

Aimee, who goes professionally by her initials ARO, has yet to speak publicly about the life threatening scare. 

The actress is the lesser known member of the Osbourne family as she declined to be a part of the reality show The Osbournes which made her siblings Kelly, 37, and Jack, 36, household names during its run from 2002-2005.

Lupita Nyong’o drops out of The Lady In The Lake miniseries as co-lead and executive producer

Lupita Nyong’o drops out of The Lady In The Lake miniseries as co-lead and executive producer

Lupita Nyong’o has dropped out of the upcoming miniseries The Lady In The Lake, an adaption of the 2019 novel of the same name by Laura Lippman.

Considering the drama Apple TV+ is already about one month into filming in Baltimore, the casting crew is hoping to find her replacement in a timely manner.

Along with her co-lead role alongside Natalie Portman, Nyong’o served as an executive producer, according to Variety.

So far there’s no official word on why Nyong’o, 39, exited the miniseries.

Despite the casting change, Portman, 40, is still onboard as one of the executive producers and the cast’s co-lead. The series also stars Y’Lan Noel, Mikey Madison, and Brett Gelman.

Set in 1960s Baltimore, Maryland, the story follows an investigative journalist (Portman) working on an unsolved murder who clashes with a hard-working woman who’s trying to advance the progressive agenda of the city’s Black community.

Alma Har’el, who created the series and co-wrote the screenplay with Dre Ryan, was initially announced to direct all of the episodes of the miniseries.

The Israeli-American, 46, is best known for her feature film directorial debut with Honey Boy (2019), which was written by and starred Shia LaBeouf in a semi-autobiographical story based on his childhood and his relationship with his father.

In all, Honey Boy notched nine wins among its 34 nominations from various associations and festivals, including Directors Guild Of America Award For Outstanding Directing – First-Time Feature Film.

Nyong’o has been filming Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, for which she plays the lead role of Nakia, an undercover spy for the African nation of Wakanda and former lover of T’Challa, who was played by Chadwick Boseman.

Originally dubbed to be the sequel to the hugely popular film Black Panther (2018), plans for the film changed in August 2020 when Boseman died from colon cancer.

After starting production in June 2021, the shoot only just wrapped in March of 2022, although there was a two-month hiatus in between. 

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is slated to premiere in the U.S. on November 11, 2022, as part of Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).

‘SNL’ Stampede: Pete Davidson, Kate McKinnon, Aidy Bryant, Kyle Mooney Reportedly Exiting

Longtime popular “Saturday Night Live” stars Pete Davidson, Kate McKinnon, Aidy Bryant and Kyle Mooney are expected to leave the program, Variety and Deadline reported Friday.

Their last regular appearances will be the final show of the 47th season on Saturday, sources told Deadline, and it may include a group goodbye.

There were no immediate details on why they’re leaving, but most have increasingly taken on new creative projects outside the program.

A future successful “SNL” mix is critical to NBC. In the 2020-2021 season, it was the most-watched entertainment program on TV among viewers between the ages of 18 and 49, the demographic preferred by advertisers, according to Variety.

Both McKinnon and Bryant have been with “SNL” since 2012.

McKinnon has convincingly morphed on “SNL” into a wild series of various characters from Rudy Giuliani to Kellyanne Conway, Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Justin Bieber, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Hillary Clinton, Jeff Sessions and Amy Coney Barrett.

She skipped some episodes this season to film the “Tiger King” Peacock TV series in which she played Carole Baskin.

Bryant will be exiting on a high with her smarmy killer clone of Sen. Ted Cruz. She also nailed it with her version of Sarah Huckabee Sanders. She’s also the creator and star of “Shrill” on Hulu.

Davidson joined “SNL” in 2014 when he was just 20. He has been the star and organizer of a wide range of sly, hilarious, sophisticated music videos on the porgram, nailed super slacker Chad, and was a smart-mouthed commentator on “Weekend Update.” He’s been straight-up about his personal life on the show, including his battles with mental health, and did a desperate, quirky Jared Kushner.

Davidson’s current starring role is as the real-life boyfriend of Kim Kardashian. The two connected last October on the “Saturday Night Live” set, where Davidson played a seriously out-sexed Aladdin to Kardashian’s steamy Princess Jasmine — on a flying carpet, no less.

Davidson was largely absent this season as he filmed James DeMonaco’s horror movie “The Home.” He took time out in the past from “SNL” to star in the 2020 movie “King of Staten Island,” which he also co-wrote.

“SNL” boss Lorne Michaels is an executive producer of Davidson’s latest project, the Peacock series “Bupkis,” based on his life and starring him. Davidson is also co-writing.

Mooney has been with “SNL” since 2013 in a wide variety of sketches. Last week he played Johnny Depp in a cold open sketch of the Depp/Amber Heard trial — and Baby Yoda on “Weekend Update.”

EDEN CONFIDENTIAL: Queen ditches the traditional carriage at this year’s Royal Ascot 

To celebrate the return of normal life, the then Princess Elizabeth joined her aunt Mary, Princess Royal, in an open carriage to the first Royal Ascot since World War II in 1946.

And the Queen has travelled in a horse-drawn landau at every Royal Ascot until the pandemic, except for two when she was pregnant.

I can reveal that she will not, however, lead the Royal Procession at the Berkshire racecourse this year. Instead, she plans to be driven the short distance from Windsor Castle by car.

‘It’s the end of an era,’ a courtier tells me. ‘Carriages are no longer possible for Her Majesty. It’s not the ride that’s the problem, but the steep steps that are needed to get into and down from the landau.’

The Queen has travelled in a horse-drawn landau at every Royal Ascot until the pandemic, except for two when she was pregnant. She is pictured above in 2017 with Camilla

The source adds: ‘The Queen hopes very much to attend Royal Ascot, each day if possible. She will arrive by car, though.’

During her 70-year reign, Royal Ascot has traditionally begun with the Queen and other members of the Royal Family arriving along the race track from Windsor in horse-drawn landaus. They then spend the day watching the races from the Royal Enclosure.

Last year, the Queen attended only the final day of a drastically scaled-down event, arriving by car.

Earlier this month, Prince Charles opened Parliament and delivered the Queen’s Speech for the first time. Buckingham Palace announced that the monarch had ‘reluctantly’ decided to pull out of the State Opening for the first time in 59 years due to ongoing problems with her mobility.

Taxation is no laughing matter for comedian Jason Manford. I hear he has handed over more than £680,000 to the taxman after being battered by HMRC bosses. And his accountants have admitted there is another huge bill on its way, but they don’t know the size of it.

He has just sold off his £3 million property empire to fund his divorce from first wife Catherine. The figures are disclosed in a newly published report from a liquidator winding up his business Invisible Man Ltd, which looked after income from ten rental homes.

If Joan Collins looks pleased with herself as she’s driven down The Mall in a Jaguar as part of the ‘People’s Pageant’ at the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, here’s why: I hear she’s celebrating the birth of a new grandchild. ‘It’s really lovely to become a grandma again,’ the Dynasty star tells me at a Bafta party in Piccadilly.

‘It’s all these grandchildren that keeps me so young.’

Joanie, who turns 89 on Monday, now has four grandchildren. This new baby is her son Alexander ‘Sacha’ Newley’s first with his jazz singer wife, Sheela Raman. They have called their daughter Deia Shanaya.

Pick of the parties

The occasion: Tusk Ball at the Natural History Museum in London.

Flying the flag: Countdown star Rachel Riley wore an outfit in the colours of the Ukrainian flag, with a blue top and yellow skirt. She’s married to Russian Strictly pro Pasha Kovalev, who has spoken out against his country’s invasion of Ukraine.

Maverick move: Prince William is patron of conservation charity the Tusk Trust, but he chose to send a recorded video message to the ball so he could attend the Top Gun: Maverick premiere three miles away. Happily, his cousins Zara Tindall, 41, and her brother Peter Phillips, 44, ensured there was a royal turnout of sorts.

Love App-tually: TV explorer Levison Wood, 40, said he was using dating apps to find love during the pandemic, and it seems he may have struck gold. He was accompanied by eco-campaigner Mia Hadrill, 31.

Python’s squeeze: The party’s venue is the home of old fossils, but Monty Python star John Cleese, 82, stayed away, leaving his jeweller wife, Jennifer Wade, 50, to take her pal, Suzy Lewis.

ITV political editor Robert Peston is known for his strangulated delivery and elongated pauses, but his son Max hopes to strike a more tuneful note

The smart set’s talking about… Pesto’s rock singer son

ITV political editor Robert Peston is known for his strangulated delivery and elongated pauses, but his son Max hopes to strike a more tuneful note.

The flamboyant 25-year-old is lead singer of rock band The New Sticky and he was joined backstage this week by his proud father, who filmed their concert for posterity. 

They performed at The Water Rats, in London’s King’s Cross, which has played host to the likes of Bob Dylan.

State school-educated Max, whose mother was Peston’s late wife Sian Busby, formed the band with three pals. 

‘It’s an unbelievable privilege to still be playing with my oldest (and dearest) friends,’ he says.

Luckily, Pesto, 62, didn’t embarrass Max by joining him on stage. 

Last year, he gushed about how it was a ‘dream come true’ to perform show-stopping songs for an ITV musical theatre special.

Fancy a glimpse into the world of London’s rich? Take a look at the scrum for places at the very best schools — into which Princess Beatrice and her husband, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, have just plunged.

I can disclose that the couple have already visited potential schools for their daughter Sienna, even though she’s only eight months old. They include Garden House, Chelsea, which charges up to £24,000 per year. Past pupils at the school, where a girl’s uniform costs £1,300, include the Queen’s great-niece, Lady Margarita Armstrong-Jones.

Let’s hope that if Sienna is enrolled at Garden House, she has a less eventful time than Formula 1 heiress Tamara Ecclestone, who cut her face ‘during art class’ and needed stitches. ‘I still have the scar,’ she later recalled.

Concert is music to the ears of Duchess

The Queen looked in excellent spirits when, to widespread surprise, she opened the Elizabeth Line this week. But she’s not the only royal with a spring in her step.

The Duchess of Kent, who gave up official duties in 2002 and now prefers to be known simply as Katharine, made a very rare public appearance in the grandeur of London’s Lancaster House.

Still elegant at the age of 89, Katharine was attending a concert given by Future Talent, a charity she co-founded in 2004. It gives opportunities to gifted musicians from poor backgrounds — a cause that evidently remains dear to her heart. She was supported by Future Talent’s co-founder Nicholas Robinson (pictured).

Yorkshire baronet’s daughter Katharine, who’s married to the Queen’s first cousin the Duke of Kent, converted to Catholicism in 1994. She no longer uses her HRH title.

The Duke is the subject of a newly published biography by Hugo Vickers, which documents his lifetime of service to the Queen.

Labour is keen to attack Rishi Sunak and his wife over their wealth and enviable property portfolio, which includes a £5 million holiday home in California. But the Opposition has even richer figures.

I can reveal that one of its own peers has just spent a staggering £11 million on a flat in America. Former frontbencher Jon Mendelsohn and his wife Nicola have bought a property in New York’s Billionaires’ Row. Publicly available records show that the couple, whose main family home is in London, took out a £6.7 million mortgage on the three-bedroom pad on Manhattan’s West 57th Street in March. The main draw of Central Park Tower is that, at 1,550ft, it’s the world’s tallest residential skyscraper.

Lord Mendelsohn, 55, is still an active member of the House of Lords, speaking this week and taking part in five recent votes. He was Labour’s chief fundraiser under Gordon Brown but had to quit his shadow minister role in 2018 after attending the notorious Presidents Club dinner where hostesses were allegedly harassed.

He also bought a manorial title and was manacled to a hospital bed in HMP Wandsworth during one of two prison sentences.

Now 55 and living in Thailand, he claims to have embarked on yet another new role — that of father. The fraudster, who likes to style himself ‘Lord Edward’, proudly proclaimed the arrival of baby Ophelia Davenport on social media.

‘It’s an amazing story,’ he tells me, without disclosing Ophelia’s mother’s name — or nationality. ‘They’ve got good English schools here in Thailand,’ adds Davenport, who attended Frensham Heights, where a headteacher once told a prospective pupil he would be ‘horrified’ if children were not ‘having sex in the bushes’. Which may explain much of Davenport’s career…

New York Man Accosted By ‘Central Park Karen’ Gets His Own TV Series

Christian Cooper, the Black man accosted by a white woman who became known as “Central Park Karen” during a birdwatching excursion in 2020, is set to embark on a new professional endeavor.

National Geographic announced this week that it had tapped Cooper, a New York resident, to host a six-episode series titled “Extraordinary Birder.” According to the network, the show will explore the “wild, wonderful and unpredictable world of birds,” as seen from Cooper’s perspective.

“Whether braving stormy seas in Alaska for puffins, trekking into rainforests in Puerto Rico for parrots, or scaling a bridge in Manhattan for a peregrine falcon, he does whatever it takes to learn about these extraordinary feathered creatures and show us the remarkable world in the sky above,” National Geographic said in a statement.

Cooper told The New York Times on Monday that he was eager to encourage viewers “to stop and watch and listen and really start appreciating the absolutely spectacular creatures that we have among us.”

“Extraordinary Birder” is expected to air on one of National Geographic’s channels and the Disney+ streaming service. A release date was not announced.

A science writer and editor, Cooper was thrust into the public eye two years ago when Amy Cooper (no relation), walking in New York’s Central Park, called the police and falsely accused him of threatening her and her dog.

“I’m going to tell them there’s an African American man threatening my life,” Amy Cooper said during the heated exchange, which Christian Cooper captured in a cellphone video.

Amy Cooper was branded “Central Park Karen” for her actions. She lost her job at the investment firm Franklin Templeton and was briefly required to return her dog to a rescue agency after the footage went viral on social media. After apologizing in a public statement, she was charged with a third-degree misdemeanor for filing a false police report. The charge was later dropped.

Though Christian Cooper said he viewed the woman’s actions as “definitely racist,” he nonetheless urged his supporters to “err on the side of compassion.”

“I am told there has been death threats and that is wholly inappropriate and abhorrent and should stop immediately,” he told CNN’s Don Lemon in 2020. “I find it strange that people who were upset that … she tried to bring death by cop down on my head, would then turn around and try to put death threats on her head. Where is the logic in that?”

Khloe Kardashian makes a wild fashion statement in a leopard print dress as she steps out for a meal

They’re saying ‘I do’ for a third time this weekend in Portofino, Italy in front of a close circle of family and friends. Here, DailyMail.com takes a look back at the three weddings, wild PDAs, IVF struggles and whirlwind romance of Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker… 

Travis’ first Kardashian crush on Kim 

Having been a friend of the family for years, Travis Barker first showed his interest in the KarJenner clan when he confessed to first being attracted to Kim Kardashian – not Kourtney – back when she was an assistant to Paris Hilton around 2006.

‘How could you not stare at Kim? Mind you, I enjoyed hanging out with Paris, but I love curvy girls,’ Travis admitted in 2015. ‘Kim was eye candy. I was no way disrespectful to Paris, but I couldn’t keep my eyes off Kim!’

Travis went on to say he spent time with Kim in their Calabasas neighborhood and while he had a ‘crush’ on her, he said ‘nothing ever happened.’

Getting to know the family 

Travis then made several appearances on Keeping Up with the Kardashians while he was still married to ex-wife Shanna Moakler, cementing his status as a true Kardashian family friend. 

His daughter Alabama revealed in October 2017 that she had been bonding with the Kardashians, along with her father, though she did not specifically mention Kourtney.

 ‘Actually, the other night I had dinner with all of them and they were really sweet,’ she said at the time. Travis shares Alabama and a son Landon with his ex Moakler, who he was married to from 2004 to 2008.

Dating rumors 

Kourtney and Travis first sparked romance rumors when they were spotted on what appeared to be a date together in 2018 Los Angeles. 

For their evening out, the duo attended an evening service at the famed celebrity Hillsong Church, and then later went out for a vegan dinner at Crossroads where they dined with Kourtney’s pal Larsa Pippen.  

At the time, Kourtney had broken up with French model Younes Bendjima just a few months before.

From friends to lovers

Their relationship was confirmed in January 2021 after growing closer during the pandemic, as Kourtney recently revealed she made the first move while the pair were enjoying a friendly movie night together.

‘I was definitely always attracted to Travis. I think it was just the right time in my life,’ she said on the show this year, adding: ‘We were texting and I put it out there, like flirtatious conversation.’

After Travis failed to make a move and went to put on a second movie for them to watch, Kourtney took action: ‘I was like, “I don’t have time for this movie marathon,’” so I made the first move.’

Their relationship is going from strength to strength, with the lovebirds happily putting racy public displays of affection on social media.

PDA power couple 

‘Kravis’ became Instagram official for Valentines in February 2021 with Kourtney posting a picture of the pair holding hands, but that was just the start of the wild PDAs that followed. By April, Travis posted a blurry snap of them making out, while they later revealed their signature move on Kourtney straddling the Blink 182 drummer in the Utah desert.

Their PDAs reached a fever pitch in August last year, when Scott Disick reached out to her ex Younes Bendjima on Instagram after seeing Kourtney straddle Travis on a gondola. He later apologized. 

They made their red carpet debut at the VMAs in September last year, and their display of tongue-kissing for the cameras set the tone for many more PDA-heavy events including this year’s Met Gala.

IVF struggles

While the couple’s romance has seen many highs, Kourtney has revealed they’ve also faced heartbreak as she’s struggled to have a child with Travis. 

In an episode of the Kardashians, Kourt confessed their doctor had taken them down ‘this road of doing IVF’ saying ‘it hasn’t been the most amazing experience.’ 

The reality star is mother to Mason, 12; Penelope, nine; and Reign, seven — with her former partner Scott Disick, whom she dated from 2005 until 2015. 

A romantic proposal 

Travis popped the question in October to Kourtney, whisking her away to a beach in Montecito, California, as the special moment was captured for the Kardashians Hulu reality show. 

Later, it was revealed there was drama as Kris Jenner made the call not to include Kourtney’s children in the happy moment – which resulted in her daughter Penelope becoming upset. 

‘I woke up all night thinking it was a dream,’ Kourtney gushed on Instagram at the time.

Three weddings 

Not content with just one ceremony, Kravis kicked things off with a drunken Las Vegas wedding in April this year after partying at the Grammy Awards. But the wedding was void as it was revealed the loved-up couple did not have the correct paperwork. 

In the run up to their big wedding in Italy, Kravis legally tied the knot in Santa Barbara in May with her grandmother Mary Jo “MJ” Campbell present, as well as Travis’ father Randy Barker. The pair drove off in a vintage lowrider convertible with a ‘Just Married’ sign.

However, the couple really pulled out the stops for their big bash in Portofino renting out an entire castle for their family and friends. The pair chose the historic house museum Castello Brown located on a hill above Portofino harbour for their official big celebration.

Jon Gosselin Attempts Comeback That No One Is Particularly Excited About

Former reality star Jon Gosselin is attempting to make a show business comeback — this time, by releasing a hip-hop track.

The song is a collaboration with the International DJ Casper, and features a slow-jam track behind Gosselin’s heavily auto-tuned vocals. It seems to be a callback to a simpler time when people actually used voicemail rather than texting.

Lyrics include bon mots like: “You’re always on my mind / But I want it to work this time / I didn’t know that love be a crime / When you get this message, can you hit my line?”

Gosselin has had aspirations of a musical career since at least 2016, when he was pursuing a career as a disc jockey, People noted. And during an appearance on “The Dr. Oz Show” last year, he said he’d been working on his music for about five years.

“Everybody wanted me to write a book, so I was like, ‘OK, I’ll write a book.’ But I’m not like a ‘book person.’ But what if I did — I’ve been deejaying for so long — what if I lyricized the book?” Gosselin said at the time.

Initial reactions from some Twitter users suggest it’s unlikely that the song will be a hit.

You can hear the song below.

Kourtney Kardashian shows off her figure in a black bikini during yacht day with Travis Barker

She’s set to tie the knot with her rocker beau Travis Barker in a lavish Portofino ceremony this weekend.

But ahead of donning her flowing white dress for the big day, Kourtney Kardashian slipped into a tiny black bikini on Friday as she enjoyed some downtime on board a luxury $14.2million yacht with her family.

And it seemed as though Travis could hardly wait for their wedding night as at one point he was seen cheekily grasping her bottom as he helped his love up onto the deck.

Stunner: Ahead of donning her flowing white dress for her wedding day this weekend, Kourtney Kardashian slipped into a tiny black bikini on Friday as she enjoyed some downtime on board a luxury $14.2million yacht with her family in Portofino

The newlyweds legally tied the knot at a Santa Barbara courthouse on Sunday, but are reportedly set to marry in a lavish ceremony this weekend.

According to TMZ, Kourtney and Travis have rented the historic house museum Castello Brown located on a hill above Portofino harbour.

With preparations underway for the nuptials, the couple took the opportunity to let their hair down on a huge hired yacht as they spend quality time with their loved ones.

And Kourtney happily showcased her figure in a barely-there thong halter neck bikini, which she accessorised with dark shades.

Cheeky! And it seemed as though Travis could hardly wait for their wedding night as at one point he was seen cheekily grasping her bottom as he helped his love up onto the deck

The mother-of-three looked happily and relaxed as she chilled with her three children Mason, 12, Reign, seven, and Penelope, nine, as well as Travis’ kids Landon, 18, and daughter Alabama, 16, and Atiana, 23.

The couple seemed in good spirits as they milled about with their children on the vessel, with Travis’ daughter Alabama and Kourtney’s daughter Penelope seen wrapped up in white towels. 

She then showed off her daring side as she and Reign jumped on board a jet-ski, with the youngster seen gripping onto the handlebars in front of her.

The duo looked delighted as they zipped across the water at full speed while the rest of the clan watched on.  

The family certainly enjoyed a luxury day as they larked about on the opulent 213ft Regina d’Italia yacht, formerly owned by Stefano Gabbana, with the vessel recently selling for a whopping $14.2million.

The yacht can accommodate 12 guests and a crew of 16, while the stunning interior was designed by none other than Dolce & Gabbana themselves.

Her mother Kris Jenner, 66, recently revealed that she had been ‘sworn to secrecy’ about the upcoming nuptials, as she was seen out shopping in the harbour town earlier in the day. 

A source revealed to People: ‘They had to legally get married first ahead of their big Italian wedding, which is happening very soon.

‘All the details are set, and the whole family, including all the kids, are very excited.’ 

With Kris telling the publication: ‘I have been sworn to secrecy. If I say one thing about a wedding, I am going to be in so much trouble!’

The couple and their children are believed to have been in the area for the past few days and were spotted earlier this week boarding a tender together.

As well as Kris, Kourtney’s sisters, Khloe and Kim Kardashian and Kylie and Kendall Jenner, Kris’ partner Corey Gamble, and her three children will be in attendance. 

But her former partner Scott Disick – with whom she has Mason, Penelope, and Reign – has not been invited. On Travis’ side, his son Landon, 18, and daughter Alabama, 16, will be there, as will his bandmates. 

It is believed that Kourtney’s maternal grandmother Mary Jo ‘MJ’ Campbell and Travis’ dad, Randy, are not able to travel abroad for the ceremony, but were present at their legal courthouse nuptials.

Kourtney and Travis have reportedly rented out the entire castle, which was built during Roman times as a military defence, and will be celebrating their nuptials over the next four days.

And that is not all as they are also planning another huge reception for their friends back in Los Angeles ‘in the near future’.

The lavish European wedding will be the third time the loved-up couple have tied the knot, following their unofficial nuptials after the Grammys in Las Vegas and their legal ceremony in Santa Barbra. 

Kourtney and Travis shared their first photos as newlyweds with their Instagram followers earlier this week.

Less than 24 hours after legally tying the knot in Santa Barbara, the reality star posted a slideshow of black and white photos from their big day.

‘Till death do us part,’ the mother-of-three captioned the snaps, featuring her straddling her spouse on top of a black convertible with ‘just married’ on the bumper before getting into the car and sharing a passionate kiss. 

The Blink-182 drummer posted an identical caption and same images of their big day as they announced the news to their fans and loved ones.

The lovebirds, who became engaged in October 2021, exchanged vows with a small number of loved ones and their security, including her maternal grandmother Mary Jo ‘MJ’ Campbell and Travis’ dad Randy, at the weekend.

After getting hitched, the reality star and drummer were seen driving off in a vintage car. 

For her big day, Kourtney was seen wearing a short white dress with a plunging neckline and red heart adorned on the bodice and a traditional veil over her dark tresses, which were pulled back for the occasion.

She styled her $1,825 Dolce & Gabbana lace bustier frock with a pair of sheer gloves and matching veil. 

Known for their love of matching, the star and her husband wore coordinated shoes for their big day. While she opted for a pair of burgundy velvet pumps, Travis matched her in trendy men’s Rockabilly shoes in the same color.

Kourtney later shared a snap of their cookie cake iced with ‘Mr. and Mrs. Barker’ from Command Entertainment Group PR owner Simon Huck and his husband Phil Riportella.

At the time of her prior Vegas wedding, Kourtney took to Instagram to share a gallery of snaps from the nuptials as she said that some drinking lead to the impromptu wedding in Sin City. 

She captioned the gallery of retro snaps to her 168million followers: ‘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).’

She also confirmed that it was not an actual legal ceremony as they did not have a marriage license but it will help them for their actual wedding as she wrote ‘Practice makes perfect.’

Under her leather jacket Kourtney wore a yellow 2012 vintage Versace bustier with a huge crystal gothic cross down the middle as she and her man packed on the PDA by sharing several kisses.

They both also sported a pair of black designer sunglasses, with Travis opting for Enfants Riches Déprimés shades. The musician opted to show off his body art by going shirtless under the outerwear.

Kourtney’s social media post was met with much joy from her celebrity family and friends in addition to her loyal followers as many commented on the post sending their love.

Travis commented on the post with two people wearing formalwear emojis with a female gender symbol in between as younger sister Kim replied with four house emojis.

The chapel’s wedding packages range in price from $99-$699, with the couple purchasing the One Love Affair package for $199, paying extra for the Elvis impersonator, according to In Touch.

The priciest package includes a limo, photo shoot, a wedding concierge, choice of love song, a fresh rose bouquet and garter belt for the bride, wedding video and a rose petal entrance, but the Kravis’ budget ceremony was a simpler affair which lasted 30-40 minutes.

It was a private early morning wedding, according to TMZ, who reported that the pair did not allow the venue to take any photos and opted to bring their own photographer and security.

Kourtney and Travis famously were engaged during a romantic beachside proposal in Montecito, California, in October.

Barker’s daughter Alabama, now 16, shared a first look at the massive sparkler — which was oval-shaped and appeared to be at least 15 carats and designed by jeweler Lorraine Schwartz — as they enjoyed an intimate engagement dinner with family and friends after the proposal, with additional footage shared throughout the evening. The ring is estimated to be worth at least $1million.

The proposal took place at 6:30 pm; family members from both sides were in attendance to usher in the happy couple.

The loved-up duo were longtime friends for a decade, before they began dating in the latter part of 2020, and went Instagram official just after Valentine’s Day 2021.

 

Wild PDAs, IVF struggles, and THREE weddings: A look back at Kravis’ whirlwind romance history

They’re saying ‘I do’ for a third time this weekend in Portofino, Italy in front of a close circle of family and friends. Here, DailyMail.com takes a look back at the three weddings, wild PDAs, IVF struggles and whirlwind romance of Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker… 

Travis’ first Kardashian crush on Kim 

Having been a friend of the family for years, Travis Barker first showed his interest in the KarJenner clan when he confessed to first being attracted to Kim Kardashian – not Kourtney – back when she was an assistant to Paris Hilton around 2006.

‘How could you not stare at Kim? Mind you, I enjoyed hanging out with Paris, but I love curvy girls,’ Travis admitted in 2015. ‘Kim was eye candy. I was no way disrespectful to Paris, but I couldn’t keep my eyes off Kim!’

Travis went on to say he spent time with Kim in their Calabasas neighborhood and while he had a ‘crush’ on her, he said ‘nothing ever happened.’

Getting to know the family 

Travis then made several appearances on Keeping Up with the Kardashians while he was still married to ex-wife Shanna Moakler, cementing his status as a true Kardashian family friend. 

His daughter Alabama revealed in October 2017 that she had been bonding with the Kardashians, along with her father, though she did not specifically mention Kourtney.

 ‘Actually, the other night I had dinner with all of them and they were really sweet,’ she said at the time. Travis shares Alabama and a son Landon with his ex Moakler, who he was married to from 2004 to 2008.

Dating rumors 

Kourtney and Travis first sparked romance rumors when they were spotted on what appeared to be a date together in 2018 Los Angeles. 

For their evening out, the duo attended an evening service at the famed celebrity Hillsong Church, and then later went out for a vegan dinner at Crossroads where they dined with Kourtney’s pal Larsa Pippen.  

At the time, Kourtney had broken up with French model Younes Bendjima just a few months before.

From friends to lovers

Their relationship was confirmed in January 2021 after growing closer during the pandemic, as Kourtney recently revealed she made the first move while the pair were enjoying a friendly movie night together.

‘I was definitely always attracted to Travis. I think it was just the right time in my life,’ she said on the show this year, adding: ‘We were texting and I put it out there, like flirtatious conversation.’

After Travis failed to make a move and went to put on a second movie for them to watch, Kourtney took action: ‘I was like, “I don’t have time for this movie marathon,’” so I made the first move.’

Their relationship is going from strength to strength, with the lovebirds happily putting racy public displays of affection on social media.

PDA power couple 

‘Kravis’ became Instagram official for Valentines in February 2021 with Kourtney posting a picture of the pair holding hands, but that was just the start of the wild PDAs that followed. By April, Travis posted a blurry snap of them making out, while they later revealed their signature move on Kourtney straddling the Blink 182 drummer in the Utah desert.

Their PDAs reached a fever pitch in August last year, when Scott Disick reached out to her ex Younes Bendjima on Instagram after seeing Kourtney straddle Travis on a gondola. He later apologized. 

They made their red carpet debut at the VMAs in September last year, and their display of tongue-kissing for the cameras set the tone for many more PDA-heavy events including this year’s Met Gala.

IVF struggles

While the couple’s romance has seen many highs, Kourtney has revealed they’ve also faced heartbreak as she’s struggled to have a child with Travis. 

In an episode of the Kardashians, Kourt confessed their doctor had taken them down ‘this road of doing IVF’ saying ‘it hasn’t been the most amazing experience.’ 

The reality star is mother to Mason, 12; Penelope, nine; and Reign, seven — with her former partner Scott Disick, whom she dated from 2005 until 2015. 

A romantic proposal 

Travis popped the question in October to Kourtney, whisking her away to a beach in Montecito, California, as the special moment was captured for the Kardashians Hulu reality show. 

Later, it was revealed there was drama as Kris Jenner made the call not to include Kourtney’s children in the happy moment – which resulted in her daughter Penelope becoming upset. 

‘I woke up all night thinking it was a dream,’ Kourtney gushed on Instagram at the time.

Three weddings 

Not content with just one ceremony, Kravis kicked things off with a drunken Las Vegas wedding in April this year after partying at the Grammy Awards. But the wedding was void as it was revealed the loved-up couple did not have the correct paperwork. 

In the run up to their big wedding in Italy, Kravis legally tied the knot in Santa Barbara in May with her grandmother Mary Jo “MJ” Campbell present, as well as Travis’ father Randy Barker. The pair drove off in a vintage lowrider convertible with a ‘Just Married’ sign.

However, the couple really pulled out the stops for their big bash in Portofino renting out an entire castle for their family and friends. The pair chose the historic house museum Castello Brown located on a hill above Portofino harbour for their official big celebration.

‘Love, Victor’ Season 3 Trailer Teases Poignant End For Pioneering Queer Teen Series

A bittersweet end is in sight for Creekwood High’s complicated teen romances, according to the trailer for the third and final season of “Love, Victor.

Season 3, which debuts next month, picks up with Victor Salazar (Michael Cimino) kicking off his senior year torn between longtime boyfriend Benji (George Sear) and a new romantic interest, Rahim (Anthony Keyvan).

From the looks of things, Victor’s pals Mia (Rachel Hilson), Felix (Anthony Turpel) and Lake (Bebe Wood) are each at a similar crossroads as graduation looms.

“Being brave means that you aren’t afraid to be scared,” Victor says in the trailer. “Because a lot of the times, the scariest things are also the most important, like admitting who you love ― or who you are.”

Catch the Season 3 trailer for “Love, Victor” below.

“Love, Victor” — a spinoff of the 2018 film “Love, Simon” that debuted in 2020 — was originally developed for Disney+ but was moved to Hulu, which is also owned by Disney, due to its mature themes. News of the streaming platform swap sparked backlash online, with many fans suggesting that the show’s LGBTQ-inclusive narrative had been deemed “too gay” for its original home.
