Inside Kourtney Kardashian's Relationship With Travis Barker

Kourtney Kardashian has a brand new love interest. Well, not exactly brand new. Rumors have swirled around the 41-year-old Kardashian sister and Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker before. The two have known each other for quite some time. E! reports that they met back when Barker was still married to ex-wife Shanna Moakler. Along with their three children, they lived on the same block as Khloé Kardashian. Fast-forward a few years, and Kourtney and Travis now live down the block from one another.


Sources have confirmed to the outlet that the two are dating. "It's been very low-key," an insider said. "They are a really good match, and Kourtney's entire family already loves Travis. They have been neighbors and great friends for years, and it just recently turned romantic." The fact that sources are speaking out on the relationship is pretty interesting. Kardashian kept her previous relationships with Younes Bendjima and Luka Sabbat under wraps throughout.

Travis has been interested in Kourtney for a while

While Kourtney Kardashian is just warming up to the rock star, he's had his eye on her for some time. "Travis has always had an eye for Kourtney," a source told E!. "The chemistry and flirtation has always been there. They have a lot in common, and Kourtney has always been attracted to how Travis is as a parent. He's an amazing, hands-on dad, and Kourtney loves that about him. They love relaxing at home with their kids, and everyone gets along. It's going well, and they aren't putting pressure on it being super serious at this point."


Another source shared some similar insights with People: "He's liked her for a long time and she just got more open to the idea. He's a good guy and a really great dad. Her family and friends all really like him. Their kids all get along too, which is sweet."

The source added, "They are having fun. Kourtney's family likes Travis. He is a safe guy for Kourtney to date. They are taking it slow and it's not serious." While that may be true, getting the whole Kardashian family's stamp of approval is no small detail. It will be interesting to see how the relationship unfolds.
