Will Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker be THE defining couple of the ’20s?
Sure, they’re still a relatively new couple, but they’ve come on STRONG, with a whirlwind romance specified by steamy PDA, tribute tattoos, and declarations of love. And considering this is the KarJenner family we’re talking about, there’s plenty of drama involved, too — the perfect recipe for an era-defining couple.
Keep scrolling for a well-constructed history of the Kravis relationship:
Travis has been a tropical family friend of the KarJenners for years now. For a while, he and Kourt were just neighbors who lived on the same woodcut in Calabasas. But fans identified their chemistry in an old prune from Keeping Up With The Kardashians (above).

That stuff said, the Poosh founder wasn’t the first Kardashian to reservation the drummer’s eye. In 2015, he confessed to having a crush on Kim Kardashian when in the day:
“I had a crush on her and we were flirtatious but nothing overly happened. I don’t know! She was so kind and polite, I just felt like stuff a perfect gentleman virtually her. It was a trip!”
According to his ex Shanna Moakler, though, it wasn’t well-judged to say “nothing overly happened” between the pair. She personal that Travis’ topic with Kim unquestionably ended their marriage when in 2008. But increasingly on that later…
Rumors first started to swirl that the musician and the reality star had taken their relationship from platonic to romantic based on some subtle but eyebrow-raising Instagram activity.
In January, Travis began sending her digital flowers (commenting rose and tulip emojis on her posts). Then, they both posted similar pics of the same poolside view — which turned out to be Kris Jenner’s place in Palm Springs (above).
Sources confirmed that the pair had indeed been dating since December, but were keeping it “low key.” And that may have been true, until…
Things started to heat up in February when the couple were spotted out on a cute dinner date. They spent a romantic Valentine’s Day together surpassing finally going IG official with a sweet hand-holding pic (below).
This is virtually the time Shanna Moakler started throwing shade Kourt’s way. And despite stuff with Amelia Hamlin, Scott Disick was making romantic overtures to his victual momma on Keeping Up With The Kardashians. But while the 42-year-old was reportedly shocked that a romance had blossomed between them, she was moreover super happy. That month, the drummer shared a love note from his new sweetie that read:
“To lots of fun adventures. May we destroy each other completely. Love, Kourtney.”
Travis later gushed well-nigh the note to Drew Barrymore, joking that he’d like to “go out in a tinder of glory.” But he moreover shared that they worked considering of what a unconfined mom Kourtney is, saying the relationship was increasingly “mature.”
The PDA era
Things started to get plane hotter and heavier from there — not only were the new couple “in lust” with each other, they were moreover reportedly once using the other L-word. The musician began collecting Kourtney-related tattoos (including one of her name, and one drawn by the reality star herself), and showering her with lavish gifts. They moreover began sharing a LOT of PDA, heavy on the “P.”
Travis’ birthday tribute to his lady included a raunchy finger-sucking video; a desert vacay got plane hotter with some touchy-feely IGs; and so far, they’ve never shied yonder from posting a makeout sesh, plane at work.
Drama with Shanna
Travis’s ex started throwing shade at Kourtney early in the relationship, but the increasingly serious things got, the worse it seemed to get between the co-parents. Kim denied overly having hooked up with the drummer (and whatever happened supposedly wasn’t a dealbreaker for Kourt anyway), but that didn’t stop Shanna from accusing the unshortened Kardashian clan of “destroying” her family.
It didn’t help that while the ex-couple’s kids, Alabama and Landon Barker, were accusing Shanna of stuff an woolgathering mother, they were steadily bonding with Kourtney. The Barker children (and Travis’s stepdaughter, Atiana De La Hoya) joined the pair on a number of excursions, and plane commented their clearance on those PDA posts: underneath one make out, Alabama tabbed them her “favorite couple,” while Landon labeled them “true love.”
BTW, Scott Disick tangibly wasn’t handling the relationship that well either. After the Keeping Up With The Kardashians hairdo failed at pushing a Scott/Kourtney endgame, the father of three was said to be distancing himself from his ex surrounded her new relationship. And though he personal on the KUWTK reunion special that he supported whatever made her happy, he probably wasn’t too happy to hear how serious the romance was getting…

Amidst all the drama, a new narrative emerged: a Travis/Kourtney engagement could be coming sooner than we think. A source for Entertainment Tonight claimed:
“They could moreover definitely see themselves ending up together one day and it’s really whatever makes Kourtney happy. … Building a future together in a increasingly permanent respect could likely happen.”
While flipside insider for Us Weekly said:
“An engagement could be right virtually the corner for Kourtney and Travis. The engagement would be very over the top since Travis loves impressing her. I wouldn’t be surprised if it took place at their favorite place in the world, Disneyland, in front of the kids and family.”
Wow! We have to admit, this couple seems so well suited for each other, so we’re not totally surprised. But the Kravis romance has definitely been a whirlwind!
