Keeping up with the…Barkers? Travis Barker‘s daughter, Alabama Barker, called Kourtney Kardashian her “stepmom” weeks after rumors the Blink-182 member and the Keeping Up With the Kardashians alum got secretly engaged.
Alabama—Travis’ 15-year-old daughter from his marriage to Shanna Moakler—played a game of “Never Have I Ever” on her Instagram Live this week. When she was asked if she’s ever met a Kardashian, Alabama responded, “That’s my stepmom.”
Alabama has been supportive of Travis and Kourtney’s relationship since the couple, who have been neighbors for years, started dating in January 2021. “This is what I come home to 🥺,” Alabama captioned a recent Instagram Story of Kourtney and Travis playing “Heart and Soul” on the piano.
Alabama’s Instagram Stories come after rumors that Travis and Kourtney secretly got engaged (or even married) in Las Vegas in July. The rumors started when Kourtney posted a photo of her and Travis with the caption, “What happens in Vegas.”
The rumors continued when Kourtney’s hairstylist, Glen Coco, also posted a photo of Kourtney and Travis with the caption, “”…NOWWW I understand why ppl tie the knot in Vegas. There’s nothing like love AND a good time,” along with a chapel emoji, black heart emojis and a crying face emoji. Alabama also fueled the rumors when she posted an Instagram of her dad and his girlfriend with the caption, “So happy for you guys,” with two heart emojis.
TMZ confirmed at the time that Kourtney and Travis are not engaged. A source also told HollywoodLife at the time that Kourtney has “no interest” in getting married. “Kourtney still has no interest in getting married or engaged to anyone. Marriage is just not her thing,” the insider said. “She doesn’t like that kind of a commitment to anyone. She’s happy, more in love than ever and Travis is fine with not being married to her. Friends don’t see her changing her mind but that’s just who she is.”
A source told HollywoodLife in April that Travis “would love” to marry Kourtney, but has reservations because of her relationship with Scott. “He’d love to get married to her, but that’s not something she’s considering right now,” the insider said. “Those are primary reasons. Travis gets that though and he’s very respectful and understanding of her situation with Scott.”
Travis has been married twice. He was married to actress Melissa Kennedy from 2001 to 2002. He was then married to model Shanna Moakler from 2004 to 2008. The former couple share two kids: Alabama and Landon, 17. Kourtney, for her part, has never been married but shares three kids with her ex-boyfriend Scott Disick: Mason, 11, Reign, 6, and Penelope, 8.
