Kourtney Kardashian is a glamorous reality star. Barker is a punk drummer from Blink-182. Who would’ve thought they would be a match made in heaven?
Earlier this year, Kourtney Kardashian from Keeping Up With the Kardashians went public with her new relationship with Travis Barker, and we’re here to talk about why they are such a unique celebrity couple. Ever since their romance was confirmed, KUWTK fans have been gushing over the new lovers, with good reason. However, Scott Disick is believed to be bitter about their relationship. Since Kourtney and Travis are an unexpected pairing, their relationship is exciting, except perhaps to Scott.
In January of 2021, Travis Barker spent some time with Kourtney Kardashian and Kris Jenner in Palm Springs. A lot of KUWTK viewers who follow the famous family wondered if the trip meant that Kourtney and Travis were an item. “Kourtney and Travis are officially a couple,” an insider said at the time, according to Us Magazine. The source continued, “They have been close friends for years and have been dating for a couple months. Travis is very smitten with Kourtney and has been for a while.” The glam-punk duo has now been dating for over six months and their relationship is very atypical.

The first reasons why Kourtney and Travis are unique are fairly obvious. These reasons are the fact that they have different backgrounds and public images. Kardashian is a glamorous reality star, while Barker is a punk drummer from the acclaimed band, Blink-182. Kourtney is always wearing dazzlingly pretty outfits, whereas he’s tattooed all over and sporting an edgy look. Kourtney has actually started wearing edgy rocker-style outfits since she began dating him. Who would’ve thought these two would be a match made in heaven? In addition, there aren’t a ton of celebrities out there that match Kourtney and Travis’s vibe. Sure, there are tons of power couples in Hollywood, but none that are really that similar to Kourtney and Travis, except Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly.
The fact that Travis chose to date a woman like Kourtney is less shocking because his previous wife was Shanna Moakler. She is a pageant queen, model, actress, and reality star, which makes her glam and therefore similar to Kourtney. Shanna is reportedly hurt by Kourtney and Travis’s relationship. However, when it comes to Kourtney, Travis isn’t a typical choice. Kourtney’s most significant relationship was with Scott Disick, who is also the father of her three children. Scott is preppy and conventional, which makes him Travis’s opposite. In between dating Scott and Travis, Kourtney had a short and fleeting relationship with Justin Bieber (and a longer-lasting romance with Younes Bendjima). Both these men were nothing like Travis, which further underscores just how different Kourtney’s new boyfriend is from the others.
Kourtney and Travis are the latest pop culture sensation. It’s almost as if the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star has decided to embrace a more rebellious image. We can’t wait to see more of Kardashian and Barker’s budding relationship. Hopefully, they will last for a lifetime.
