After confirming their relationship on Instagram last month, it seems that Kourtney Kardashian and Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker have moved into the double-date phase of things.

This weekend, they were spotted with the equally odd coupling of a beautifully manicured Machine Gun Kelly and Meghan Fox in a teddy coat. MGK and Barker have collaborated in the past, and while I don’t know if Kourtney and Meghan know each other, I feel like they have enough in common (wealth, beauty, eerily similar-looking boyfriends) to become fast friends. To top off the chaotic spirit of the evening was the scene: a UFC “mixed martial arts show” in Vegas, also attended by a random menagerie of celebrities including some sports guys and Matt from The Bachelor.

There’s been some speculation as to whether or not one video of the event shows Barker sucking on Kourtney’s fingers, but I’m more interested in the above clip, in which Kourtney can be seen eating one of Travis Barker’s (apparently signature) Tootsie Pops. Kourtney, in spite being a Sugar Factory ambassador, famously hates and avoids sugar, so I take this to mean that she’s really into Barker.

And outside of the lollipop, they seem to be going pretty strong — each party is constantly praising the other’s maturity (Barker most recently on the The Drew Barrymore Show, Kardashian in a People exclusive), which seems like a pretty healthy quality in a partner. They’re also both parents and into vegan food, and they share the same love language centered on mutual social media compliments, so there’s that.
