Kourtney Kardashian was blasted by the mayor of Malibu for allegedly lying on a permit application for her recent Poosh event.

Bruce Silverstein accused the pregnant wellness guru of misrepresenting the nature of the Poolside with Poosh party being thrown at a sprawling Malibu, Calif., mansion Saturday.

“I understand that the event has been represented to be a baby shower that is being hosted by the owner of the property,” Silverstein wrote in a lengthy Facebook post over the weekend.

“Both of those representations are contrary to what the event planner told me — which was that the house is being ‘rented’ for an ‘influencer event.’”

One attendee told Page Six, “There were no more than 100 people attending the privately held wellness event for friends of Poosh.”

The mayor of Malibu slammed Kourtney Kardashian’s team in a lengthy Facebook post for hosting a private event over the weekend.

Page Six has reached out to reps for both Kardashian and Silverstein.

The politician — who titled his social media post in part, “City of Malibu Continues to Place Celebrities and the Uber Wealthy Over Residents” — also said the bash was negative for his constituents.

“As an elected official, however, I am appalled by the situation, and it helps me understand what residents throughout the city are dealing with,” Silverstein wrote.

“Not a good look for the city — although it is a great ad to non-residents who want to come here and destroy the residents’ peaceful enjoyment of their homes,” he added.

It’s not clear whether Kardashian, 44, was even in attendance at the event, which featured a nail salon, massages and a hair salon with sponsorships from brands like 818 Tequila, Ring Concierge and CoverGirl.

Mayor Silverstein is now requesting an internal investigation to determine whether any city employees were “complicit” in the alleged fraud.

Kardashian, who launched her lifestyle brand in 2019, is currently pregnant with her fourth child.

The reality TV star revealed she underwent emergency surgery for her unborn baby boy earlier this month. At the time, her husband, Travis Barker, flew home from Europe to be by her side.

“I flew home for a life-threatening emergency surgery for our baby that I’m so grateful went well,” the Blink-182 drummer, 47, wrote on Twitter after the procedure.

Kardashian is already a mom to three children — sons Mason, 13, and Reign, 8, and daughter Penelope, 11 — with ex-boyfriend Scott Disick.

Barker, who wed the Poosh founder in 2022, shares son Landon, 19, and daughter Alabama, 17, with ex-wife Shanna Moakler. He is also stepfather to Moakler’s daughter Atiana, 24.
