Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker are known for their own brand of PDA — not only how frequently they kiss, but also how they kiss.
The couple is known for smooching with their tongues, and it turns out that there’s a practical reason for this.
The eldest Kardashian sister, 43, prepares for her Met Gala debut alongside Barker, 47, in Thursday’s new episode of “The Kardashians.”
“I don’t want to get lipstick all over him and I don’t want to ruin my lipstick, but we also don’t want to not kiss, so we’ll kiss with our tongues,” Kardashian said in a confessional interview.
“That’s how we kiss; that’s why we kiss that way.”
The couple, who married legally in Santa Barbara in May and later held a lavish ceremony in Italy, wore matching outfits to the 2022 Met Gala. The pair wore two deconstructed Thom Browne suits that reflected their bodice-ripping fervour.
Kardashian’s look was created “using the tailored pieces that Travis Barker wears reconstructed to showcase her individuality with exposed construction details,” according to a press release at the time.
“I love how I was the deconstructed version of his perfectly polished look. I had all of the elements from his look draped all over me,” Kardashian said on Instagram after the gala, which was held just days before their nuptials.
Travis Barker’s pleated skirt, jacket, and suit pants were all combined to create her “dripping” skirt.
While the couple is always keeping things hot and heavy, Kourtney’s children aren’t on board with their mother’s makeup-saving trick.
Penelope Disick gave the couple vouchers that apparently allowed them to kiss in another recent episode of the Hulu show, and brother Reign complained about witnessing the PDA.
