Travis Barker’s ex-wife Shanna Moakler appears to be having fun by engaging in shady internet behavior and taking a jab at Barker every now and then. While she denied having “bad intentions” for Barker and his new relationship with Kourtney Kardashian, she claims that she ended her marriage to Travis Barker because he cheated on her with Kim Kardashian.
Where did the claim emerge from?
Shanna Moakler recently spread the affair rumor in response to her and Barker’s daughter, Alabama, when the latter took to her Instagram Story to blame her mother, claiming she was “never completely” in her life and was not an “amazing Mom.”
Along with her message, Alabama, 15, also shared a screenshot of a direct message written by Moakler that read, “I divorced Travis because I caught him having an affair with Kim! Now he’s in love with her sister…It’s all gross…I’m not the bad guy!”
With the said messages, the internet was sent into frenzy as Travis Barker, 45, has been dating Kourtney Kardashian since earlier this year.
However, a source close to Kim Kardashian rubbished these rumors. “Travis and Kim have never had a romantic relationship,” the source said on Monday. “They were friends who met through Paris Hilton and that is also how Kourtney and Travis were introduced.”
Criticizing Moakler for her behavior, another source said that she has been “spreading lies.”
“It’s a shame that she continues to spread lies because she is clearly bitter her ex is happy and has moved on,” the source said. “It’s extremely hurtful to her kids how she is behaving. Hopefully she gets the help that she needs and can eventually find happiness.”
Apart from this rumor, Moakler also had something to say on Barker’s latest tattoo.
Travis had ex-wife Shanna’s initials on his hand covered up with a new skull tattoo. In response, Shanna got his name lasered from her wrist. She then took to Instagram to insist that the only reason Travis shared the video of Kourtney tattooing him was to ‘insult’ her.
“To my new found haters,” Shanna wrote. “To clarify since everyone seems to know my personal life, my ex put a skull tattoo over our initials on his hand while his new girl lovingly looked on.”
“That was done with purpose and intent along with posts to try to insult me and my happiness with my new man. Once again weird! This was my final session on a tattoo of his name. I’ve been removing for some time,” she added.
Despite Moakler’s social media actions, the American model and actress said that she’s happy for the Blink-182 drummer and his newfound romance.
Shanna Moakler and Travis Barker got married in 2004 and parted their ways in 2006 with their divorce being finalized in 2008. The exes share Alabama, 15, and a 17-year-old son, Landon.
