The third set of "I dos" vowed by Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker on Sunday was to die for.

The couple, who had a Las Vegas wedding in April and then jumped the broom officially in a private ceremony in Santa Barbara, California, a few weeks later, were apparently warming up for their nuptials at a lavish ceremony and reception in Portofino, Italy, on Sunday.

Kourtney wore a Dolce & Gabbana wedding dress with an enormous train to the ceremony before changing into a short black number for the after-party -- all the better to hit the dance floor. Travis, for his part, wore a traditional black tux to the ceremony, and a swishier, almost pajama-like outfit with sunglasses for the reception.

According to the Instagram Stories from Alabama, the Blink 182 drummer's 16-year-old daughter, the couple cut the rug to hits from the Jackson 5, and "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)" and "Crazy in Love" by Beyoncé. The happy couple also swayed to Etta James' "At Last."

According to Page Six, the star-studded celebration ran into Monday morning.

(NOTE LANGUAGE) Like millions of Foo Fighters fans, John Stamos is mourning the loss of drummer Taylor Hawkins, who was found dead in a Bogota, Colombia, hotel room last Friday night.

Stamos posted to Instagram a video from Hawkins in which he ribs his fellow drummer for taking a spot in a commercial from him. 

"Stamos is a good buddy of mine," Hawkins says in the clip. "He's a great drummer...he's a great dude, all that stuff."

"But I am a little upset with him, actually," Hawkins continues. "I have to be honest with you because I was supposed to do that GEICO commercial. You know that GEICO commercial where he flips, flips the stick. That was mine. Originally that was mine."

He adds, "But they decided to go with Stamos because he's better looking. But I am the best stick flipper around, sorry Stamos," he continued. "I got this. It goes me, Tommy Lee, Stamos."

For his part, the Full House star and part time Beach Boys drummer commented, "Yes, Taylor you are the best stick flipper and I miss you pal!", adding "#gonetoof***ingsoon".

Dave Grohl announced Tuesday that his band was cancelling the remainder of their tour "in light of the staggering loss of our brother Taylor Hawkins." According to Variety, Sunday's Grammys will include a tribute to Hawkins.

The infamous Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee sex tape takes center stage in new ‘Pam & Tommy’ trailer

J.Sciulli/WireImage

As has been reported, Lily James and Sebastian Stan became perfect doppelgängers for Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee for the Hulu film Pam & Tommy, but now the buzzy Hulu series has a new teaser.

The clip serves as something of an origin story for one of the couple's most infamous -- and intimate -- escapades: their stolen sex tape. 

Seth Rogen and Parks and Recreation's Nick Offerman are seen scanning through a videotape that was stolen in a burglary of the stars' Malibu home, when they strike gold: X-rated honeymoon footage of the pair.

"It's so private," Offerman's Uncle Miltie says. "It's like we're seeing something we're not supposed to be seeing. Which is kinda what makes it so hot." 

The stolen footage was leaked online, prompting the Motley Crüe drummer and the Baywatch icon to sue the distributor, Internet Entertainment Group. After settling with the company, the footage was released legitimately in 1998, and made a reported $77 million in less than a year. 

Helmed by Stan's I, Tonya director Craig GillespiePam & Tommy tracks the couple's whirlwind romance, their quickie 1995 wedding, and their turbulent marriage, which ended in 1998, amid reports of physical abuse. 

Neither stars were involved in the making of the series, which was produced by Rogen and his longtime collaborator, Evan Goldberg.

Pam & Tommy premieres Feb. 2 on Hulu.

Jared Leto claims he was “only joking” about his gross ‘Suicide Squad’ gifts

(NOTE LANGUAGE, CONTENT) While he's gone on the record as having done so, Oscar winner Jared Leto now claims he was joking when he said he'd sent his Suicide Squad co-stars gross "gifts," like sex toys and used condoms, from his Joker alter-ego.

His co-stars had corroborated the stories, with Oscar-winner Viola Davis once telling Vanity Fair, "He gave us some really horrific gifts," claiming Leto had a "henchman" drop a dead pig on a table on set. "And then he sends Margot Robbie a black rat. It was still alive, in a box. She screamed, and then she kept it."

At the time, Leto claimed playing the Clown Prince of Crime in the movie led him to create an "element of surprise" for his co-stars. Leto, however, now says his outrageous claims were "all in jest."

The House of Gucci actor and 30 Seconds To Mars frontman just told Entertainment Weekly, "99.9 percent of what people read is bulls**t. [T]here were no used condoms."

He added, "Any of the very few gifts that were ever given were given with a spirit of fun and adventure and received with laughter, fun, and adventure. It's all filmed! They filmed it all! People were dying. We were just having a goof."

Leto also said, "I'm playing a guy called the Joker, it's OK to play some jokes. Nothing ever crossed any lines, and it's not up to other people on the internet to create those lines."

Twitter removes Nickelback “Photograph” meme shared by President Trump

iStock/lukutin77

Twitter has removed a take on the Nickelback "Photograph meme" that happened to be shared by the President of the United States.

The meme uses a snippet from the song's video, with the titular photograph Chad Kroeger presents to camera replaced with another image.

In the case of the just-removed post passed on by President Trump, Kroger is seen "presenting" a real photo of Joe Biden, his son Hunter, and a board member of a Ukrainian gas company a golf outing. "LOOK AT THIS PHOTOGRAPH," Trump captioned it.

Hunter Biden's connection to -- and lucrative board member appointment by -- the Ukrainian company Burisma, have dogged his Democrat front-runner dad, with the New York Times and other outlets floating the notion it was a conflict of interest for Joe Biden, who at the time was the vice president.

President Obama's VP successfully "threatened to withhold $1 billion in United States loan guarantees if Ukraine’s leaders did not dismiss the country's top prosecutor," wrote The Times. While that prosecutor was "accused of turning a blind eye to corruption in his own office," the eventually fired prosecutor general was reportedly investigating Burisma Holdings -- which at times paid Hunter Biden as much as $50,000 a month.

However, Democrats in lockstep opposing President Trump recently launched an impeachment inquiry, following a whistleblower who accuses Mr. Trump of asking Ukraine's new president to investigate the Biden/Burisma connection, as Biden is now his 2020 campaign rival. 

It's not clear who ordered the Nickelback meme taken down.
