On Thursday night (March 14), Travis Barker helped kick off the 2019 iHeartRadio Music Awards with an energetic performance of his collaborative new single "11 Minutes" with Halsey and YUNGBLUD. But before beating up his drum kit onstage, the blink-182 percussionist spoke to People about his rumored relationship with Kourtney Kardashian.
“Kourtney’s like a dear friend. That’s it,” he said, squashing romance rumors. “I mean, I love her to death. I love her family to death. But yeah, just friends.”
The punk rock veteran and reality TV star live in the same Calabasas neighborhood and have been friends for quite some time. Their kids even have play dates together. However, dating rumors began circulating when a source close to Travis and Kourtney told Radar Online that their friendship had turned into something more earlier this month.
"[Ever] since Kourt has been single, they’ve gotten closer and closer – to the point where he sneakily stays at her place now,” a source told the outlet, going so far as to say "she's really falling for him" and that the rockstar has always pined for her.
It's clear now that this was all just speculation, but Kourtney ending up with a musician wouldn't be too out of left field considering her sisters Kim and Kylie both have rapper beaus.
