Kourtney Kardashian Goes TOPLESS To Celebrate Travis Barker's Birthday

On November 14, “The Kardashians” reality star took to Instagram to share a photo of her bare back. She has her arms wrapped around Travis’ body as he plants his hands on her waist. Although he is cradling her baby bump in the second photo, in the third, he has both of his hands planted over her chest. She has her hands directly over his as she stares directly into the camera.

“To my husband, my soulmate, my best friend, my lover, my daddy to our baby boy, my everything… I wish you the happiest birthday. You make all of my dreams come true and I feel so blessed to have you by my side. I love you beyond words, forever,” she wrote in the caption. Unfortunately, fans did not seem to share the birthday well-wishes as they criticized her “tone-deaf” pictures.
