KOURTNEY KARDASHIAN and TRAVIS BARKER hit up a Vegas wedding chapel after the Grammys on Sunday and got HITCHED. But it turns out they’re NOT legally married, because they never got a marriage license.  They DID have an Elvis impersonator officiate the ceremony, though. When they do tie the noose . . . if they get that far . . . it’ll be Kourtney’s FIRST marriage, even though she has three kids with SCOTT DISICK.  It’ll be Travis’ third.  He has two kids with ex-wife SHANNA MOAKLER (LINK) 

AUGUST ALSINA is the apparent “entaglement” Jada Pinket Smith was referencing. He apparently watched the Oscars and knows when to release a song. Because he just teased a new song called “Shake the World”. Actually, he doesn’t mention her by name, but he does make reference to their “entanglement”. For those who don’t remember:  Two years ago, August said he had an affair with Jada . . . with WILL SMITH’s permission. Will and Jada ended up giving their side of the story on “Red Table Talk”.  Jada admitted that she DID have what she called an “entanglement” with Alsina.  But she said she and Will were separated at the time. So . . . in “Shake the World”,

Regina Hall, Amy Schumer and Wanda Sykes hosted the 94th Academy Awards. Amy Schumer did a pretty good job hosting. She did some jokes. But she DIDN’T do some ,aterial she was told NOT to do. So naturally, a few days later at a gig she did them. Her reasoning is, don’t people deserve to hear them?   She called Will SMith Ali. Then  she went with this…“I want to preface these Oscar jokes by saying that my lawyer said not to say these. Don’t tell anybody, and don’t get mad at me.” On the subject of Alec Blaldwin and the shooting on the set of Rust…“Don’t Look Up is the name of a movie? More like don’t look down the barrel of Alec Baldwin’s shotgun,” Schumer said. “I wasn’t allowed to say any of that, but you can just come up and [slap] someone.” 

Hear about Johnny Depp’s new tv show? Here is the theme JOHNNY DEPP’s defamation lawsuit against AMBER HEARD hits a Virginia courtroom on Monday and Court TV is going to televise it.Johnny filed a $50 million defamation lawsuit against Amber for her claims of domestic abuse in a “Washington Post” Op-Ed. This particular case has a slew of celebrity witnesses that include JAMES FRANCO and ELON MUSK . . . so it’ll be interesting if they show up and take the stand. The head of Court TV said, quote, “”Between the camera feed directly from the courtroom and our first-class lineup of talent, Court TV will be the true source of an unbiased, down-the-middle perspective of the trial as it unfolds” (LINK) 

Netflix recently rolled out a new feature that will get the some profits from those who share their passwords outside of the agreement. Could be a decent amount of cash coming in eventually. 44.4 percent of Netflix users rely on the account of someone outside their household for access. This from a  survey of 1523 Americans from all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Of the paying subscribers, 50 percent admitted to sharing their login info with people they didn’t live with which technically violates the company’s terms of use.  These subscribers share their accounts with 2.3 people on average. In March, the service began testing a pop-up in certain markets that asks viewers to confirm they live with the owner of the account. But you can just say”verify later” for now.  In March, Netflix announced plans to charge subscribers an additional $2.99 to allow outside users to access their accounts. They will test the new policy in Chile, Costa Rica, and Peru before deciding to launch it elsewhere.  79 percent of non-paying users say they wouldn’t sign up for their own account if Netflix cracked down on them (LINK)

Tiger Woods made it official Tuesday about his intent to play in the 2022 Masters and added an extra bonus when asked if he believed he could win: “I do,’’ he said. Woods, 46, a five-time winner of the event whose status for the year’s first major championship was in doubt as recently as 10 days ago, practiced for the third straight day at Augusta National and then conducted a 30-minute news conference in which he covered all manner of topics related to his serious injuries from a car crash to his ability to be competitive. He said: “I can hit it just fine. I don’t have any qualms about what I can do physically from a golf standpoint. It’s now walking is the hard part.” Woods is scheduled to play with former British Open champion Louis Oosthuizen and Joaquin Niemann on Thursday at 19:34 a.m. STL time.

The NFL is looking to continue growing its market outside of the United States, and they’re willing to give up tackling to do it. To expand their popularity internationally, chief operating officer of NFL International Damani Leech said the league is looking to get more people involved in flag football as a part of its 10-year international growth plan. The league thinks the key to growing the league is by having exposure in the Olympics. So, their goal is to introduce flag football to the Olympics by the 2028 Summer Games. American football has not been recognized as an Olympic sport since 1932 when it was used as a demonstration sport.

NFL quarterback Deshaun Watson now will have to answer whether he had sex with 18 additional therapists who came to his defense about his massage habits last year. Watson is being sued by 22 other women who accused him of sexual misconduct during massage sessions in 2020 and early 2021. As part of the pre-trial process in those lawsuits, their attorneys have sought to have Watson answer written “requests for admission” about whether he had sex with the 18 therapists who publicly supported him after the lawsuits against him started in March 2021. Watson, who recently was traded to the Cleveland Browns, previously refused to answer these questions, saying it was harassing, private and not relevant, according to an objection filed by his attorneys in court.

Even though Tom Brady‘s back, Rob Gronkowski says he’s not ready yet to commit to playing football again … telling TMZ Sports he’s still truly undecided about his future. Most thought the tight end would be a shoo-in to return to Tampa Bay in 2022 after his QB unretired … but Gronk says that’s just not the case — at least not yet. In fact, Rob says he actually avoided catching footballs at a charity event over the weekend so he wouldn’t get an urge to make a decision that he might regret later. He said QUOTE: “I knew if I started catching some passes that my head would have started turning, like, ‘Oh, crap, I got to get back out on the field,. “And, right now, I’m not ready to get back out on that field. I’m not ready to commit to the game of football right now.”

A season that started with championship promise for the Los Angeles Lakers ended with the pain of failing to even qualify for the play-in tournament. Tuesday’s loss to the Suns  — officially eliminated L.A. from play-in contention with three games remaining in the regular season. Injuries sabotaged the season, with L.A.’s new-look Big Three of LeBron James, Anthony Davis and Russell Westbrook combining to play just 21 games together. The Lakers went 11-10 in those games.  A team picked to win 52.5 games in the preseason by BetMGM Sportsbook and a top favorite — along with Brooklyn — to win it all, was eliminated from play-in tournament contention by losing its seventh straight game to bring its record to 31-48
