Kim Kardashian (40) will undoubtedly agree: her sister Kourtney (42) is no longer ‘the least exciting to look at’. Since her relationship with her fiancé Travis Barker (45), she has been in the spotlight again and her sensual side is increasingly coming out. And that within one year. It’s high time to take a closer look at their relationship.
September 2018 – February 2019
After Kourtney ended her relationship with Scott Disick in 2015, she has been linked to several men. One of them is Travis Barker. The two are spotted together several times. They often go out to dinner or attend a church service.
It is unknown whether there was a romance at the time. The two have been friends and neighbors for a long time: they live in the same gated community in Los Angeles. The Barkers have been visiting the Kardashians for years and even make their appearance in Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
Reality shows are no stranger to Travis. Between 2004 and 2008 he made Meet The Barkers together with his now ex-wife Shanna Moakler . They have two children together: daughter Alabama and son Landon. Kourtney has three children with Scott Disick: Mason, Penelope and Reign.
That their friendship has taken on a romantic twist is apparent from the messages Travis leaves with Kourtney’s (often sexy) Instagram photos. Rumors that the two are dating have flared up again. It wasn’t until their meeting at the Palm Springs home of mother Kris Jenner that the spark really flew between the two and they made their relationship official. Later it becomes clear that they have been dating for a few months.
It doesn’t take very long for the couple to become an ‘Instagram official’. They both post a photo showing them holding hands in the car.
Kourtney’s 42nd birthday on April 18 is being celebrated in a big way by Travis. He had a special artwork made of white gardenias and tulips that hung from the ceiling. This is also the start of their PDA: public displays of affection. The two are captured on camera during a fiery kissing session, many more to follow…
Travis, meanwhile, has his love for Kourtney immortalized on his body with a tattoo.
While the couple share one racy snap after another that is more often than not kissed, the first rumors of a possible engagement in June are already circulating when the couple has been together for just six months.
Another milestone in Travis and Kourtney’s relationship. After a traumatic plane crash in 2008, it seems that Travis will never fly again, until Kourtney convinces him. The drummer places a photo and the text ‘with you everything is possible’. The journey takes them to Italy, where of course the necessary snaps in love are shared with the rest of the world.
In Nylon magazine, Travis reflects on his first flight in more than a decade. “I made a deal with her after she just said to me, ‘I would love to travel with you so much. I want to go to Italy with you. I want to go to Cabo with you. I want to go to Paris with you. I wants to go to Bora Bora with you,” said Travis.
“And I said, ‘Well, when the day comes when you want to fly, I’ll tell you I’m coming with you. I’d do anything with you. Notify me 24 hours in advance.’ And that’s what she did.”
To show their love even more, the couple is not much later on the red carpet of the VMAs and on the toilets.
The engagement rumors are finally being publicized. On October 16, Travis gets down on one knee on the beach in Santa Barbara in a sea of red roses. A few relatives are present during the marriage proposal. Kourtney’s answer to the proposal is, of course, ‘yes’. On Instagram she confirms the news with two photos and the text ‘forever’.
