“We’d be really nice around each other, like little kids, and then when we parted, she would call me and say, “I want to see you again.” “Me too, I would say,” Travis wrote of Kim in his 2015 memoir.
Since they announced their relationship in early 2021, Travis Parker and Kourtney Kardashian haven’t been private with anything but how much they love.
The pair quickly became famous for their PDAs, with former Scott Disick shaming the couple when they were spotted stepping out on a beach in Italy.
In fact, during this week’s episode of The Kourtney Family’s reality show, Kardashiansher children and Travis begged her to stop “French kissing” during a family dinner.
After being friends for several years, Kourtney and Travis decided to take things to the next level after they became closer during the lockdown.
And after just one year of dating, in October 2021, Travis proposed a million-dollar engagement ring at a romantic beach show that saw the couple surrounded by flowers and candles.
Since the proposal was made, the couple had a “training” wedding in Las Vegas, followed by a legal ceremony on Sunday with only his father and grandmother as witnesses.
Weddings were said to be their way of arranging the arts ahead of their big wedding in Italy, which is expected to take place soon.
Throughout their relationship, fans have commented on how Kourtney looks happier than ever, which is something her family has talked about as well.
In fact, Travis couldn’t have been so warmly welcomed into the KarJenner clan, where Kourtney’s sisters Kim and Khloé Kardashian and her mother, Kris Jenner, have spoken incredibly well of him.
Basically, Kourtney and Travis’ entire relationship seems to have been a fairy tale, and it’s clear to everyone that Travis couldn’t be surrounded by his new wife.
In the last episode of KardashiansKris was filmed telling Kourtney that Travis had revealed to her that he had moved to Calabasas years before their romance began, just to be closer to her.
“Do you want to know the real reason why he moved to Calabasas?” Chris Courtney asked. ‘He said, ‘Because I knew she lived in Calabasas, and I knew she was the love of my life, and I didn’t even know her like that, but I only knew if I couldn’t date her or be with her because she was with someone else I could at least live with her.’
Travis first moved to Calabasas in 2007, a year after his split from ex-wife Shanna Mockler. He bought a second home in the area in 2017.
In light of Kris’ comments, many fans have noted that according to Travis’ private diary, he briefly dated Kourtney’s sister Kim a year before he moved to Calabasas. He has also previously called Kim “controversial” and “eye candy” after admitting she had a major “crush” on her.
In his 2015 autobiography, Can I say: living big, cheating on death, drums, drums, drumsTravis recalled a 2006 trip to Amsterdam with Paris Hilton and Kim, who was working as Paris’s closet organizer at the time.
Despite dating Paris, Travis admitted that he secretly eyed Kim during the holiday.
“We all checked into our hotel and then rented bikes and rode them all over Amsterdam — that’s what you do there. It was me, Lil Kris, my drum technician, Daniel, Paris and Kim,” Travis wrote in the memoir. “We all got as high as a kite at the café. Then we rode to the Absinthe Bar, then the red-light district.”
“I was having a blowout and was happy to let the world know about it. I kept checking on Kim secretly, telling Lil’ Kris, ‘I don’t care if it’s the closet girl, she’s so sexy,'” he adds.
He called Travis, who had a reality show with Shana in 2005 Meet the Parkersto reveal that he gave Kim advice because she shared her hopes for a reality show with her family.
He said referring to the success keeping up with the Kardashians. “I respected her hustle. She was meeting with Ryan Seacrest, and she wanted to know what the show would be like. I told her, “It’s hectic, you don’t have privacy. You and your family are not alone in the house. It’s really personal, and it can really be taken advantage of'” .
Travis also spoke about his initial attraction to Kim in a 2015 interview with Us Weekly, saying, “How can you not stare at Kim? Mind you, I enjoyed hanging out with Paris, but I like curvy girls. Kim was eye candy. I had no respect for Paris in any way.” No way, but I couldn’t take my eyes off Kim.”
After Travis and Paris broke up, he met briefly with Shanna before they broke up again. In his book, Travis says he started talking to Kim shortly after the release of her sex tape with Ray J in February 2007.
“We stayed in touch after Amsterdam, and she did some modeling for Famous. She hired Estefan Oriol to film an entire ad campaign for her wearing a swimsuit. Kim’s tape came out and she split up with Ray J.”
He then said it was “weird” how he “only wanted to be a gentleman” to Kim despite her sex tape, as he remembered his innocent dinner and lunch dates. He even spent time with her family and used her as a model for the popular clothing line Stars and Straps.
We went to dinner, we went to lunch. You might think I would do the worst things with this girl because of her tapes, but it was unlike any other encounter I’ve had with a woman: With Kim, I wanted to be just a gentleman for her. “It was very strange,” Travis recalls.
“We were around each other a lot. We used it in celebrity ad campaigns. She came to my house and went swimming. We watched the 4th of July fireworks together,” he said in his diary. “I was going to visit her and her family at their clothing store. We’d be really nice around each other, like little kids, and then when we parted, she would call me and say, “I want to see you again.” I say “me too”.
Travis eventually ended up reuniting with Shana again, but he still found himself “really [wanting] to see Kim”, which led to a confrontation between the two women.
“Shana caught what was going on. She spilled the drink on Kim at a party hosted by Carmen Electra. I was horrified,” he claims, before insisting that things weren’t physical between him and Kim. “It wasn’t supposed to be the case.”
Travis doubled down on his crush during his 2015 interview with Us, repeating that they never hooked up.
“I liked her and we were flirting but absolutely nothing happened. She was so cute and polite, I felt like a gentleman around her. It was a ride!” he said in the interview. Because God knows, when you hook up, shit gets awkward!
Despite insisting that nothing happened between them, Shanna claimed that Travis cheated on her with Kim.
In May last year, Travis and Shana’s daughter, Alabama, shared a screenshot of a text message she allegedly received from her mother to her Instagram story.
In the post, Alabama said her mother “wasn’t completely there before [her] Life” and asked the followers “to stop photographing her to be a wonderful mother.”
Part of the seemingly lengthy text read from Shana: “I divorced Travis because I found out he was in an affair with Kim! Now he’s in love with her sister… It’s all disgusting.”
Speaking to Us Weekly last May, Shana said of Kim and Travis, “I divorced my ex because I saw them – I caught them having an affair. Someone sent me everything they had.” [text] Conversations and I’m also close friends with the people who were there, while things were happening.”
But Kim denied the allegations last year after a fan asked in an Instagram Q&A: “Have you hooked up with Travis Barker?” She replied: No! False novel! We’ve been friends for years and I’m very happy for him and Kurt.”
However, people are now arguing that whether or not Kim and Travis are physically related is irrelevant, and the fact that he’s previously admitted that he was surrounded by her around the same time he moved to Calabasas has raised some eyebrows.
Discussing his past comments online, fans speculated that when he told Kris, “I just knew if I couldn’t date her or be with her because she was with someone else at least I could live next to her,” it was actually Kim that he originally felt that way .
One person wrote, “I know everyone has different limits and tolerances, but how can anyone marry a man who has expressed himself in this way toward her sister.” “It’s as if Kurt is the second best player for Kim because he couldn’t get to her first.”
“employment KardashiansKris Jenner tells a story about how Travis Parker moved to Calabasas to love Kourtney from afar. Well, I read that book and knew this…..it was following Kim, not Kourtney. Awk,” someone else tweeted.
Another commented, “Travis Parker wanted the Kardashian to be so bad he spent years talking about Kim in interviews and then said he moved to Calabasas to live near Kourtney years before she knew her.”
“I call it bullshit. I read his book and he absolutely loved Kim,” another person said in regards to a report that he approached Kourtney. “She said she was the first girl he just didn’t want to sleep with.”
Kourtney has never admitted to her ex-husband’s affair with her sister, but something tells me that it didn’t bother her too much.
