Travis Barker, the drummer for Blink-182, has an amazing track record in the dating world.
After splitting from his first wife, Melissa Kennedy, on August 6, 2002, Travis began dating Shanna Moakler, a contestant for the Miss USA pageant in 1995. About two years after their marriage, they had a baby. They have two children, Landon Asher and Alabama Luella. Landon is close friends with Mason Dash Disick, Kourtney Kardashian’s son.
Besides Tara Conner, the 2006 Miss USA, Travis has been linked to the likes of Paris Hilton.
Travis Barker and Shanna Moakler fought often
In 2002, after Travis divorced his first wife, Melissa, for nine months, he met Shanna. They got married on October 30, 2004, at The Ritz-Carlton Bacara Resort and Spa in Santa Barbara, California, with a ceremony fashioned after Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas.
Soon after, MTV offered Travis and Shanna a reality program
Meet the Barkers debuted with its first season in April of 2005. After two seasons, the show was discontinued in 2006. It’s generally accepted that the deterioration in relations between the stars and the subsequent controversies occurred at about the same time.
Divorce papers were filed by Travis on August 8, 2006.
Shanna Moakler fought Travis’ new partner Paris Hilton in 2006
During their divorce proceedings, Travis and Shanna took to Myspace to air their dirty laundry. Shanna and Travis’s new girlfriend, Paris Hilton got into a verbal altercation, while others claim it turned physical.
“I believe there was no fight, just an exchange of words that lasted 12 seconds,” Shanna’s publicist, Susan Madore, told People.
Police were notified regardless
“They never had a healthy dynamic, constantly alternating between loving and hating each other. It erupted into chaos. He is a famous musician, and she enjoys socializing. They have a passionate relationship and fierce rivalry,” someone close to Travis and Shanna said.
While they were legally separated in February 2008, they stayed in the same house because they thought it was best for their children. This was the case until 2012.
On December 7th, 2014, police were called to their Cheviot Hills, Los Angeles, home after a heated argument.
After the breakup, Travis began spending more time with A-listers like Paris. He wrote about his feelings for Kim Kardashian, who was working as Paris Hilton’s assistant at the time, in his memoirs Can I Say: Living Large, Cheating Death, and Drums, Drums, Drums, published in 2015.
From what we can tell, Travis first met Kim in Amsterdam with his band and liked her immediately.
“Kim was quite attractive. I didn’t mean any disrespect to Paris by staring at Kim instead.” “Us Weekly,” Travis volunteered.
Kim was off-limits because she was Paris’ assistant, but Travis and her became good friends anyway.
There’s a story that at one time in their relationship, Travis and Paris got married in a hasty ceremony performed by none other than Suge Knight, CEO of Death Row Records. According to Radar Online, instead of the standard wedding vows, Suge gave the pair some humorous and casual alternatives.
Travis dated “Phoenix” singer Rita Ora in 2015. The romance, it seems, ended suddenly after only a short time together.
Travis Barker is Kourtney Kardashian’s boyfriend
Although Travis and Kourtney have known one other for quite some time, relationship speculation began early in 2021. In January, they were sighted in Palm Springs, California, and they also posted some photos to Instagram with a strikingly identical backdrop. There was also some flirtatious banter between Travis and Kourtney, which many have taken to mean that things are heating up between the two.
On February 17 Kourtney posted an Instagram selfie of herself and Travis holding hands, making the couple’s romance public. (Okay, you can’t be positive it’s him; it’s only their hands. (However, the tattoos gave it away.)
Kourtney and Travis are dating, according to another reliable source. “Kourtney and Travis’ relationship is going well. She hoped he would confirm their connection because she sees it as a good thing for both of them “said the source, as reported by People.
They said that she had been unmarried for some time and “didn’t anticipate” their friendship to develop into anything serious. “In her opinion, she has been extraordinarily blessed. She enjoys time with Travis very much.”
