Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker have confirmed their relationship with a sweet photo shared on their Instagram accounts. Check out their photo below.


"Keeping Up With The Kardashians" star Kourtney Kardashian has found love yet again. After months of speculation, the reality star has finally confirmed a new relationship, and it's with a long-time friend of hers.

Kardashian, 41, took to Instagram to confirm her relationship with Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker, 45. The musician also made it official by sharing the same sweet photo on his Instagram story.

Without any caption, Kardashian shared a romantic photo of herself holding hands with Barker. The close-up picture, taken in a car, showed her well-manicured nails interlocked with Barker's heavily tattooed hand.

Barker returned the favor by commenting on the post with only a single black heart emoji before re-sharing the sweet photo on his own Instagram story. 


Within a few hours, Kardashian's photo had received over two million likes and thousands of comments. The comments section was filled with mixed reactions from fans. Some were happy for the reality star and others did not approve.

One fan gushed, "What a match made in heaven! Two super nice people who both deserve a super nice relationship," while another wrote, "IF IT'S NOT SCOTT WE DONT WANT IT??."


While several fans expressed their disappointment that Kardashian and her ex-boyfriend, Scott Disick, are no longer together, the POOSH founder's friends' comments and emojis proved that they fully support the new romance.

This is Kardashian's second relationship since ending her nine-year on-and-off relationship with Disick.

Similarly, a source told People that Kardashian's family really like Barker and are completely supportive of the couple. The drummer lives close to the family in Calabasas, California, and has been featured on their reality show in the past.


Although Kardashian and Barker have been friends for years, they are taking things slowly. The pair spent their first Valentine's Day together where they teased fans with matching photos in the same location.

The new couple has also been spotted holding hands while enjoying dinner. Besides their one-on-one dates, Kardashian and Barker also spend time with their kids who get along well.

Kardashian has three children, Mason, 11, Penelope, 8, and Reign Disick, 6, who she co-parents with her ex while Barker and his ex-wife, Shanna Moakler, share two kids, Alabama, 15,  Landon, 17, and his stepdaughter, Atiana, 21.


This is Kardashian's second relationship since ending her nine-year on-and-off relationship with Disick in July 2015. Previously, she dated Algerian model Younes Bendjima, who was over a decade her junior.

The relationship lasted only two years and ended on bad terms after Bendjima was photographed cozying up with the model Jordan Ozuna in Mexico while they were on a break in 2018.
