Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker are a couple.
After weeks of rumors, the 41-year-old Poosh founder confirmed that she and the Blink-182 drummer are dating.
Kardashian and Barker have been friends for years, but it wasn’t until recently their friendship took a romantic turn.
Although, they’ve reportedly been dating for months, the two have kept their relationship private, until now.
Like any celebrity couple, Kardashian and Barker confirmed their relationship via Instagram.
In the photo, Kourtney and Travis are holding hands, and the caption reads “when friends become lovers.”
From Friendship To Romance
Kourtney and Travis first met back in 2006 via Kourtney’s sister Kim Kardashian and best friend Paris Hilton.
Travis was friends with Paris, and quickly formed a friendship with Kim and Kourtney.
Kourtney and Travis’ friendship continued throughout the years. Barker even lives in the same Calabasas neighborhood as Kourtney.
The neighbors often gathered for playdates for their children, who get along well.
Seeing how dedicated and hands-on Travis is as a dad is what sealed the deal for them to becoming a couple.
Shanna Throws Shade At Travis And Kourtney
After going public with their relationship, Kourtney’s Instagram feed was flooded with well wishes from fans and celebrity pals.
Although, everyone seems in support of the new relationship, there’s one person who may not be so happy.
Barker’s ex Shanna Moakler.
The 45-year-old actress appeared to throw shade at Barker and Kardashian’s relationship.
On Moakler’s latest Instagram posts, her followers made a series of harsh comments about Travis and Kourtney. One follower remarked that Barker downgraded by dating Kourtney.
Moakler like the downgraded comment about Kourtney, which has led to speculation that she’s not thrilled about her ex moving on with Miss Kardashian.
Travis And Shanna’s Tumultuous Marriage
Moakler and Barker’s marriage and divorce was tumultuous.
The pair married in October 2004, and became a blended family with their two kids Landon and Alabama, and Shanna’s daughter Atiana.
Their home life was the focus of the MTV reality series “Meet the Barkers.”
However, after less than two years of marriage, Barker filed for divorce.
The couple attempted reconciliation several times, but split for good in 2009.
Since then, the exes have tried to keep things amicable as they co-parent their children.
Although, the two are on good terms, many wonder if Barker’s relationship with Kourtney will be an issue for Moakler.
Is Scott A Factor?
Speaking of exes, many are wondering how Scott Disick feels about Kourtney’s new romance.
Kourtney and Scott were together for nine years before splitting up for good in 2015.
Their on-again, off-again relationship was featured on “KUWTK.” The reason for their split was reportedly due to Disick’s partying and infidelity.
Following their split, Kourtney and Scott remained friends as they co-parented their three children.
Last year, Kourtney was there for Scott after his break up with Sofia Richie and his stay in rehab.
Although, fans hoped for a Kourtney and Scott reunion, that wasn’t in the works.
Scott is now dating model Amelia Hamlin, while Kourtney is happy with Travis.
So far Scott hasn’t broken his silence on Kourtney and Travis’ relationship, but fans are curious about his thoughts on the situation.
