Travis’ first Kardashian crush on Kim
A friend of the family for years, Travis Barker first showed interest in the KarJenner family when he admitted to being drawn back to Kim Kardashian – not Kourtney – for the first time, when she was Pa Liz Hilton’s assistant.
“How can you not stare at Kim? Mind you, I love hanging out with Paris, but I love curvy girls,” Travis admitted in 2015. “Kim is eye-catching. I have no disrespect to Paris, but I can’t take my eyes off Kim!
Travis went on to say that he spent time with Kim near Calabasas, and while he had a “fascination” with her, he said “nothing ever happened.”

Travis then made multiple appearances on Keeping Up With the Kardashians while he married ex-wife Shanna Moakler, cementing his status as a true Kardashian family friend.
His daughter Alabama revealed in October 2017 that she and her father had been in touch with the Kardashian family, although she didn’t specifically mention Kourtney.
“I actually had dinner with all of them that night and they were really sweet,” she said at the time. Travis shares Alabama and a son, Landon, with his ex Moakler, whom he was married from 2004 to 2008.

PDA power couple
In February 2021, “Kravis” became the Instagram official for Valentine’s Day, and Kourtney posted a photo of the two holding hands, but that was only the beginning of the frenzied PDA that followed. By April, Travis had released a blurry photo of them making out, while they later revealed Kourtney’s signature move astride the Blink 182 drummer in the Utah desert.
When Scott Disick saw Kourtney straddle Travis on a gondola on Instagram last August, their PDA hit a fever pitch. He later apologized.
They made their red carpet debut at the VMAs last September, and their tongue-in-cheek kiss on camera set the tone for more PDA-heavy events, including this year’s Met Gala.

While the couple’s romance had many highs, Courtney revealed that they also faced heartbreak as she struggled to have a baby with Travis.
In an episode of The Kardashians, Kurt admitted that their doctor put them on “the IVF road” and said “it wasn’t the most amazing experience”.
The reality TV stars are the mother of Mason, 12; Penelope, nine; and Reign, seven, and her ex-partner Scott Disick, who dated from 2005 to 2015.

Travis posed the question to Kourtney in October, taking her to a beach in Montecito, California, as the special moment was filmed for the Kardashians Hulu reality show.
Later, it was revealed that drama happened when Kris Jenner called to keep Courtney’s kids from participating in the happy moment – which caused her daughter Penelope to become distraught.
“I woke up all night thinking it was a dream,” Courtney gushed on Instagram at the time.

Not content with one ceremony, Kravis attended a drunken Las Vegas wedding at the Grammys in April. But the wedding was void as it was revealed that the loving couple did not have the correct paperwork.
On the eve of their grand wedding in Italy, Kravis legally married her grandmother, Mary Jo “MJ” Campbell, and Travis’ father, Randy Barker, in Santa Barbara in May. The pair left in an old low-seat convertible with a “Just Married” sign.
However, the couple really went out of their way to rent out the entire castle for their family and friends for their big bash in Portofino. The couple chose Castello Brown, a historic house museum on a hill above Portofino Harbor, for their official grand celebration.
