Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker are Instagram official

At the start of the year, we heard that Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker were flirting on Instagram and might possibly be hanging out, as the kids say. It didn’t take long for a ‘source’ to out them to People when they vacationed at her mom’s place in Palm Springs. Well, the duo has decided they’re ready to go Instagram official. On Wednesday, Kourtney posted this to her IG account:

In the comments, Travis added a black heart emoji so I don’t know how much more serious this can get, you guys. As far as their union goes, I think most of us agree it’s fine. They’re around the same age and seem to be in the same celebrity and family space so they’re pretty well matched.

It’s odd that Kourtney posted this the same day her sister Kendall Jenner announced her 818 Tequila. It’s not a huge conflict, but Kourt could have held off a day. Or at least made her announcement a tie in, like by having a bottle of Kendall’s tequila in the background. But I don’t think Kendall or the tequila were on Kourtney’s agenda. I think she was far more focused on her ex, Scott Disick. In 2019, Kourtney apparently rethought her situation with Scott after hearing that they were “soulmates” during a reading in Bali. Following that, the two kept posting photos in romantic situations with cryptically suggestive captions. Last week, some season 20 clips from KUWTK fed that fire, when the sisters discussed Kourt and Scott having a possible sleepover with no kids. Fanboards went nuts wondering if Kourtney had tried to get back with Scott. Days after those rumors took off, Kourtney and Travis were “caught” having dinner at a restaurant named Matsuhisa and indulged in a bunch of maskless PDA. Not to be outdone, after the Matsuhisa photos, Scott flew his 19 year-old girlfriend, Amelia Hamlin, to Miami – again, during the pandemic – for Valentine’s Day. While there, Scott made sure he and Amelia were first to become Instagram official.

Scott’s friends, of course, claim Kourtney and Travis’ thing had nothing to do with Scott finally confirming his relationship with his nepotism model girlfriend, 18 years his junior. Just like I’m sure Scott and Amelia’s IG had absolutely no influence on why Kourtney chose to go official with Travis… the same day her sister launched her tequila brand she’s been working on for almost four years.

    They are so lucky they came as a Klan, because other than Khloe individually they are painfully boring. They could never have done shows alone as the main females like Jessica Simpson,Paris Hilton etc

    Is it weird if I say I never thought they actually split up?
    Even this- Travis is a long term family friend
    Amelia Grey has a quench of a thousand suns

    I feel have felt like Scott as cut adrift publicly to keep drugs stories etc away from the brand. Privately they stayed together.
    I know I sound fully tinfoil hatted

    Scott seems so messed up. All of these relationships with teenage girls is depressing

  4. Chaine says:

    I feel sad for Travis Barker. He has a terrible picker.

    • Size Does Matter says:

      I’ve always found him hot in a sad lost animal sort of way. Like I have this urge to take care of him. It’s his eyes and permanent sad facial expression. He looks haunted.

    I still call BS on this relationship. It’s all for show.

    I look forward to the day that this family are a footnote in entertainment history and people will get their doctorate on writing papers about why they had such mass appeal. I watched one show a long time ago. It was terrible and so fake and extremely annoying.

    What does a black heart mean? 👵🏻

    Who cares???

    Stop getting paid for posting Kardashian stuff.
    This is why people come here less, stop pandering to this family who means nothing.

      Darlin’ that doesn’t make a lick of sense. Celebitchy constantly roasts the K-Klan in articles and in the comments. And they don’t even cover all the drama (trust, the Daily Mail’s coverage is a clearer indication of a tit-for-tat situation and they have wayyyyy more Kardashian stories and they’re usually very sugary and superficially fawning.
      And in all honesty, if you don’t want to read articles about the Kardashians on a GOSSIP BLOG then I don’t think you’ll be able to find one to your liking. If you don’t want to see any mention of the Kardashians, go read a Brookings article and let people have their frivolous gossip fun
