AceShowbiz - Travis Barker has finally broken his silence on rumors of him dating Kourtney Kardashian. The drummer of Blink-182 addressed the ongoing report when hitting the red carpet at the 2019 iHeartRadio Music Awards at Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Thursday, March 14.
Talking to reporters, Travis insisted that even though he really loves the "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star, they are nothing more than friends. "Kourtney's like a dear friend. That's it," the musician, who was joined by his three children on the red carpet, said. "I mean, I love her to death. I love her family to death. But yeah, just friends."
Travis and Kourtney sparked dating rumors last month, when they were spotted having a dinner date at the upscale sushi restaurant Nobu Malibu. "They had dinner at Nobu with the kids because they are friendly. It was a family dinner," a source said of their outing. "They've been friends for years. They've lived in the same neighborhood for a long time and they see each other at church and with their kids."
"They've hung out together many times and often get together with the kids to see movies or to get ice cream," the insider continued. "They always have fun together. He's a nice guy and their kids really get along well. Kourtney has his kids over playdates and vice versa. They have a really nice friendship."
Prior to their romance rumors, Kourtney dated the likes of Younes Bendjima and Scott Disick. She shares children Mason, Penelope and Reign Disick with the latter. In addition to that, she was reportedly romancing 21-year-old Luka Sabbat. As for Travis, he is father to daughter Alabama and son Landon from his marriage to ex-wife Shanna Moakler. He also has a stepdaughter named Atiana, Shanna's daughter with Oscar de la Hoya.
