The best relationships can blossom from platonic friendships. Although many people are likely to be surprised by Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker’s new romance, the two have really known each other for quite some time. Us Weekly said that Barker and Kardashian were dating in January 2021, after he visited Kardashian at her mother Kris Jenner’s house in Palm Springs, California. An insider told Us, “Kourtney and Travis are a couple.
” They’ve known each other for a long time and have been dating for a while now. “Travis has had a longtime crush on Kourtney.” The Blink-182 drummer was quite forward in his advances toward the Poosh creator on Instagram in the days leading up to the announcement of their relationship. Barker reacted with a rose emoji as she uploaded a sultry selfie taken in her dressing room. Below a picture of her stepping into the water, he drew a mermaid emoji.
After she posted several clips from the 1993 film True Romance, he replied, “You’re So Cool.” (The musician has said that True Romance is his all-time favourite film; in fact, he gave his daughter the name Alabama, after Patricia Arquette’s character in the film.) There is a long history between Kardashian and Barker. The two, who share a Calabasas, California, gated enclave, have been seen together on multiple occasions, including going to dinner and church together in 2018.
The artist and his ex-wife Shanna Moakler have both appeared on the popular reality show that the Kardashians have been operating for years. Barker once told Us exclusively that he had a crush on Kim Kardashian, the mother of three’s sister, when she was still working as Paris Hilton’s secretary. What kind of person wouldn’t stare at Kim? Though I had a good time hanging out with Paris, I prefer curvaceous women,” he said in October 2015.
Kim was a visual treat. I didn’t mean to be rude to Paris by staring at Kim, though. They were neighbours in Calabasas, so they occasionally ran into each other. He claimed, “I had a crush on her and we were playful, but nothing ever occurred.” They “would go out to eat, just hang around.” The ex-Dash owner and ex-husband Scott Disick are co-parents to their kids Mason, Penelope, and Reign.
Their relationship stabilised into friendship when they broke up after nine years of on-and-off dating. Both Younes Bendjima and Luka Sabbat have been linked to Kourtney, but Disick dated Sofia Richie for over three years before moving on to Amelia Gray Hamlin in late 2020. The former cast member of Meet the Barkers was wed to Moakler from 2004 and 2008. Alabama and Landon are their children from a previous relationship. Barker dated Rita Ora in 2015, but their time together was brief. The history of Kourtney and Barker’s relationship is down below.
During an Entertainment Tonight interview with Barker and Alabama, his daughter remarked about bonding with the Kardashian family. She continued, “I had dinner with them the other night, and they were all incredibly kind,” and the rock star chimed in, “I told her she had a power meal.” I remarked to Alabama, “That was an awesome dinner to be a part of.”
In the comments section of several of Kourtney’s Instagram posts, Barker dropped hints that he and Kourtney might be dating, including a red rose emoji on a photo of the E! personality taking a sultry mirror selfie in her closet.
In March of 2021, the couple was photographed kissing and holding hands after a date at the vegan Crossroads Kitchen in West Hollywood. After their fling, an insider told Us exclusively, “Kourtney and Travis are doing really well.” Everyone thinks that Kourtney and Travis make a great couple.
In March of 2021, the founder of Poosh handed the musician a handwritten message in which she confessed her emotions for him. The note was signed with a heart and said, “I love you.” Barker posted the personal remark at the moment to his Instagram Story.

Smiling and giggling, the couple played “Heart and Soul” on the piano for each other. Barker’s daughter, Alabama, took a picture of the touching moment and posted it on her Instagram Story with the message “This is what I come home to” and a teary-eyed emoji.
Barker discussed her decision to fly with Kardashian again in an interview with Nylon magazine. She had just told me, “I would love to do so much travelling with you,” and I agreed to that. Please take me to Italy. It would be great to visit Cabo together. I’d want to accompany you on a trip to the City of Light. At the time, he stated, “I want to go to Bora Bora with you.” And I said, “Well, the day will come when you desire to fly, and on that day I promise to be there to help you. With you, I’d be up for anything. And all I need is a day’s notice. So she tried that, and it worked.
