Kourtney and Travis Weekend in Palm Springs
Travis, who has been on KUWTK a couple of times was posting the trip on his Instagram story over the weekend. They both posted the same backyard view of Kris Jenner’s Palm Spring house. Even though they didn’t post any pictures on their Instagram feed of the trip, the stories were pretty clear.
Over the years there have been rumors that Travis and Kourtney were more than friends. In 2019 he was quick to shut down the rumors that he was dating the famous Kardashian Sister. “Kourtney’s like a dear friend. That’s it. I mean, I love her to death. I love her family to death. But yeah, just friends.” He told PEOPLE Magazine at the iHeartRadio Music Awards.
Even though the long-time friends have tried to make it clear that there is nothing romantic going on, a source confirmed that they have been dating for about a month. It seems they want to keep the relationship private for now. “They’re in Palm Springs together. They’ve been dating for about a month or two, they’ve been friends for a long time but it’s turned romantic. Travis has liked her for a while,” an insider shared with PEOPLE Magazine.
Who is Travis Barker?
45-year-old Travis is part of a rock band called Blink-182 where he is the drummer. Barker is a well-respected rock musician and has been named one of the 100 greatest drummers of all time by Rolling Stone. Their third studio album Enema of the State rose them to stardom. Aside from his music career, he also had a reality show on MTV called Meet The Barkers with his then-wife Miss USA Shana Moakler in 2005 but it only lasted 2 seasons.
Just like Kourtney, Travis is also a parent. He has two children, Alabama Lella Barker and Landon Asher Barker. He has been married twice, once to Shana Moakler and then to Melissa Kennedy who he divorced after one year of marriage.
Kourtney’s Complicated Relationship with Scott Disick
Fans of the Kardashian’s have watched Kourtney and Scott battle a tough relationship for nine years. The now separated parents share three kids together but fans have always hoped the couple would eventually get back together.
Kourtney and Scott first dated when she was 28 and he was just 24. They met at a Girls Gone Wild party and began dating shortly after that. A couple of years into the relationship Kourtney found out she was pregnant with Mason. In 2009 their first child was born and the couple moved to Miami.
Even though they enjoyed being parents, Scott’s constant drinking and fighting soon became a reason for their split.
Scott’s drinking and partying began to take a toll on the relationship. A year after their son Reign was born, Scott and Kourtney announced they were officially calling it quits. The reason for that is said to be the pictures of him and his ex Chloe Bartoli surfacing Everyone was sad to see the couple end their long relationship and it seemed that Kourtney was done giving him any more chances.
Over the years, Kourtney Kardashian has been linked to Justin Bieber, Younes Bendjima, and Luke Sabbat.
