Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker apparently 'fake-eloped' in Vegas

Elvis has left the chapel, but not before officiating a (possibly fake) Kardashian wedding. On Tuesday, TMZ reported Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker tied the knot in Las Vegas after attending the Grammys. The report said the couple got married at a wedding chapel at about 1:30 a.m. on Monday, and the wedding was officiated by an Elvis impersonator. "It was important to them that an Elvis impersonator officiate," TMZ wrote, without specifying why. Later on Tuesday, though, Page Six reported they're actually "not legally married" because they never got a marriage license. "They had a ceremony, but on paper it's not legal yet," an insider told Page Six — so the report concluded they simply "fake-eloped in Vegas for fun." As you do! TMZ's original report said they have "several" other celebrations planned after Vegas "with lots of fanfare." We wish them the best with their fake wedding reception and fake honeymoon.

Jason Momoa denies Kate Beckinsale dating rumors

Don't sweat trying to figure out what Jason Momoa and Kate Beckinsale's celebrity couple name is — it turns out that's not a thing. Momoa is denying rumors that he and Beckinsale are dating after the two were seen together at an Oscars afterparty. Photos from the party showed the Aquaman star gave Beckinsale his jacket. But he addressed the rumors to Extra, saying, "Everyone's like, 'Oh, you're dating.' I'm like, 'No, no, it was chivalry. It was cold.'" Momoa announced in January he and his wife Lisa Bonet were separating, though there was later speculation they might have reconciled after he said they're "still family." But Momoa recently clarified "we're not back together," and he only meant they're still family because they have two children. As far as Beckinsale goes, Momoa told Extra they're "absolutely not" dating, joking, "Now I'm not giving my coat to anyone. So f--k it, let them freeze!"

LeVar Burton and more 'Star Trek: The Next Generation' stars returning in 'Picard'

Star Trek fans have been hoping for a full-fledged Next Generation reunion in Star Trek: Picard, and now, Paramount+  will make it so. The streamer revealed Tuesday much of the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation will return in the third season of Picard, which will also be the series' last. Patrick Stewart stars in the show as his Next Generation character, Jean-Luc Picard, and the final season will also feature LeVar Burton, Michael Dorn, Jonathan Frakes, Gates McFadden, Marina Sirtis, and Brent Spiner. Frakes, Spiner, and Sirtis previously made guest appearances. "The story of Jean-Luc Picard ends honoring the beginning, with his dearest and most loyal friends from the U.S.S. Enterprise," showrunner Terry Matalas said. "It would be an understatement to say that giving these characters a proper send-off is an honor." Just think of it as The Next Next Generation. Wil Wheaton wasn't listed among those returning, though, meaning we may be deprived one last "shut up, Wesley" for old times' sake.

Hailey Bieber says she's not pregnant: 'Leave me alone'

Baby, baby, baby, no! Hailey Bieber is shutting down speculation she's pregnant with her first child with Justin Bieber, as fans recently claimed following her appearance at the Grammys. The model walked the Grammys' red carpet with her husband, and after the show, RadarOnline shared a headline on Instagram referencing speculation she's expecting a child based on the "​​flowing gown" she wore. But Bieber shot this down, commenting, "I'm not pregnant leave me alone." Justin Bieber has said he wants to have as many kids "as Hailey is wishing to push out," though she says she's in no rush. Earlier this year, she told The Wall Street Journal she's "still super, super young" and is focused on "all the things I want to accomplish in my business." She added, "Definitely no kids this year; that would be a little bit hectic, I think."

Daisy Ridley is 'coming out of social media hibernation'

There has been an awakening on Daisy Ridley's Instagram page. The Star Wars actress has returned to social media years after quitting at the height of sequel trilogy mania. "Coming out of social media hibernation refreshed, recharged, and ready for what I'm calling my 'Year of Yes,'" she captioned a photo of herself drinking tea. Ridley, who played Rey in the new Star Wars movies, used to be relatively active on Instagram. But she deleted her account in 2016 after backlash over a post speaking out against gun violence, and she later swore she'd never return. Her co-star Kelly Marie Tran also quit social media due to online harassment. Years later, Ridley is giving Instagram another shot — though if she's assuming the Star Wars fan community has gotten any less vitriolic since she left, we have some bad news.
