Kourtney Kardashian may have a new boyfriend. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star is rumored to be dating Travis Barker, the drummer for the band Blink 182.

Rumors started when eagle-eyed fans noticed the musician had been leaving comments on Kardashian’s various Instagram posts, according to The Sun.

On one of Kardashian’s recent posts, she posed in nothing but a black bra top and what appeared to be matching shape-wear on the bottom. Barker took to the comments to leave a red rose emoji.

“Kourtney and Travis are very close and they have unreal chemistry. They talk almost every day and everyone around them is desperate for them to get together,” a source told The Sun. “Travis and Kourtney have so much in common. They’re dedicated parents, and she relies on him for advice on everything from work projects to family rows. They’ve both been in on-off relationships with former partners for years. But that also means they have a lot of baggage – they have five kids between them. There’s a reason that Kourtney normally dates younger guys with no kids who keep things casual – she’s scared of getting her heart broken again like with Scott,” the source added.

Kourtney Kardashian & Travis Barker Dating Rumors Have Circulated Before

Despite what fans were hoping for, Barker was pretty candid about his relationship with the reality star at the time. He opened before his performance at the 2019 iHeartRadio Music Awards, which he attended with his three kids.

“Kourtney’s like a dear friend. That’s it. I mean, I love her to death. I love her family to death. But yeah, just friends,” he told People Magazine at the time.
