Talk about an unlikely duo. Just when we thought that Kourtney Kardashian would be rebounding from her ex-boyfriend, Younes Bendjima, with her baby daddy, Scott Disick, it seems like someone else has come to the rescue — Travis Barker! The Blink-182 drummer recently got flirty with the mother-of-three on Instagram and now, fans can’t help but speculate that the pair is dating.
On Aug. 26, Kourt uploaded a picture of herself on a bicycle with the caption, “Wanna [bike emoji]?” Nothing too salacious, right? Well, Travis quickly commented a bike emoji and cloud of smoke emoji on the photo and almost immediately, fans had something to say.
“OK, when are y’all going to date?” commented one user. “Hm, your kids already do playdates! You two might as well date, too!” added another.
Now, for those of you who aren’t aware, this isn’t the first time Travis and Kourt have been linked. In fact, earlier this year, reports leaked that the father-of-two had a major crush on the eldest Kardashian. “Travis lives a couple of blocks from Kourt in the same gated community in Calabasas and their kids play together,” a source told Radar in March.
“He’s always had a bit of a thing for her,” continued the friend. Apparently, the punk rocker “would love to ask her out” but he “missed his chance” when Kourtney quickly began dating Younes after splitting from Scott for the last time. Well, now that Kourt is flying solo again, maybe Travis is finally making his move.
Travis may seem like Kourtney’s polar opposite, but they actually have a lot in common. For example, Travis is vegan and Kourtney is also health food obsessed. They’re also both parents, as Travis has two kids, son Landon, 14, and daughter Alabama, 12, while Kourtney has Mason, 8, Penelope, 6, and Reign, 3. Plus they both grew up in the limelight, travel a lot, and live in the same neighborhood.
Travis is also familiar with the reality star lifestyle since he and ex-wife Shanna Moakler had their own show called Meet The Barkers. They’re also a lot closer in age, with Travis being 42 and Kourt 38. TBH, we kinda really want to see this happen!
