Travis Barker Slams Claims His Past Fling with Kim Kardashian Caused Rift with Kourtney

Travis Barker is shutting down claims that the reason for his wife Kourtney Kardashian's faud with sister Kim is because of his past fling with the family's most famous sibling.

The Blink-182 rocker finally addressed the “ridiculous” speculation that began circulating when excerpts from his 2016 memoir, “Can I Say,” resurfaced earlier this year.

“You give people a little information and they think they’ve solved the mystery of ‘this is why they’re fighting.’ It’s just so ridiculous,” he told the Los Angeles Times Sunday.

“It’s like, ‘Kourtney’s fans are worried about Travis. He’s a womanizer.’ Stop it,” he added.

In his tell-all book, Barker called the Skims founder “f—king hot” and admitted to “secretly checking [her] out” when he briefly dated Paris Hilton in 2006.

“I obviously shared all that stuff because I wanted to move past it,” the drummer, 47, explained. “It was therapeutic for me.”

Barker, who tied the knot with Kourtney last year, further insisted there was no drama within the Kardashian clan over his short-lived crush on Kim.

“That’s her sister. She knows we used to talk. Nothing bad was going on,” he said.

Back in 2021, Kim, 43, shut down rumors surrounding her romantic past with the “I Miss You” hitmaker.

“NO! False narrative!” she wrote via her Instagram Story in response to a fan asking whether she ever hooked up with Barker.

“We’ve been friends for years, and I’m so happy for him and Kourt.”

Kim’s feud with the Poosh founder, 44, actually stemmed from a disagreement over a Dolce & Gabbana fashion show that played out on Hulu’s “The Kardashians.”

“It feels awful that my sister used my wedding as a business opportunity,” Kourtney said in a confessional, referencing the deal her sister inked with the fashion brand after they collaborated on her wedding in Italy just months prior.

The wellness guru later called Kim an “egotistical … narcissist” and a “witch” that she “f—king hate[s].”

The sisters have since put the drama to bed, however, with Kourtney admitting they had both spoken out of turn.

“I think we’ve both said things we’re not proud of, but anyone who has sisters or siblings knows the dynamic,” the mother of three, who is currently expecting her fourth child with Barker, said during the Season 4 premiere of the family’s reality show.

“You could get into a crazy fight and then, you know, you could send each other a funny text and everything is all good.”

He can deny it all he wants, but I'm not buying it. I mean he wrote how much he was into Kim in his memoir. I also believe Kourtney despising Kim goes much deeper than a disagreement over a D&G fashion show.

Kourtney is the eldest child, but being that Kim is the "cash cow" of the family, pimp mama Kris places Kim as her favorite child.

Also I don't know how Kourtney could marry and get pregnant by someone who was obsessed with Kim long before the world started keeping up with the Kartrashians. Nothing brings two rejects closer together than their hatred for someone (that someone being Kim).
