Shanna Moakler Reveals How Travis Barker’s Relationship with Kourtney Kardashian Caused a Family Rift

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Shanna Moakler, ex-wife of rocker Travis Barker, has claimed that Barker’s relationship with reality star Kourtney Kardashian caused a rift in their family. In a recent episode of the “Dumb Blonde” podcast hosted by Bunnie XO, Moakler discussed how Barker’s desire to be a “super dad” to their children was exacerbated when he started dating Kardashian. Moakler expressed concern that their children became enamored with the glitter and fame associated with the Kardashian family and that their perception of their own mother was affected.

Moakler and Barker have two children together, 18-year-old daughter Alabama and 20-year-old son Landon. They also share a 24-year-old daughter named Atiana. Moakler suggested that the allure of being on television and meeting celebrities blindsided their children and drew them into Kardashian’s world. She mentioned that Bunnie XO, the podcast host, is married to musician Jelly Roll and touted herself as “the trailer park Barbara Walters.”

The former couple previously appeared on the reality show “Meet the Barkers” during their marriage, which ended in 2008. Barker is now married to Kardashian, and they recently welcomed their first child together.

Moakler emphasized that she wants her children to be happy and is pleased that they seem to like Kardashian. However, she acknowledged that she feels inadequate compared to the extravagant lifestyle that Barker and Kardashian can provide for their children. Moakler mentioned the luxury gifts and events they partake in and stated that she cannot afford to give her children the same lavish experiences.

Moakler assured listeners that she has discussed the issue with her children and forgave them for any hurtful comments they made. She also revealed that she removed herself from the media coverage surrounding Barker and Kardashian for the sake of her mental health and to prevent any negative influence on her children’s perception of her.

Ultimately, Moakler expressed her unwavering love and commitment to her children, regardless of the circumstances. “I will be here loving you unconditionally, and I will be here as your mother,” she said.

It remains unclear if Kardashian has responded to Moakler’s claims. Co-parenting can be challenging, but Moakler stressed the importance of prioritizing the children’s happiness and well-being. As the situation unfolds, it is evident that Moakler remains focused on being a dedicated and supportive mother.
