A new couple has been added to the iconic list of tatted-up punk boy x hot supermodel pairings throughout the ages.
Just to name a few, we've had Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee, Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden, Nicole Richie and Joel Madden, Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly and now: Kourtney Kardashian and Blink 182's Travis Barker. Sure.
There's something specifically chaotic and satisfying about this couple in particular: maybe because Barker and his band dominated pop culture in the 2000s, while Kourtney and her family did the same throughout the 2010s. It's the blending of two very distinct worlds that we never knew we needed. Punk meets polished. Gritty meets pretty. Like if the couple from the start of Avril Lavigne's "Sk8r Boi" stayed together.
They've apparently been friends for a long time, but a source People that their connection recently "turned romantic", and that they've been "dating for about a month or two".
The pair visited Palm Springs over the weekend where Kris Jenner (of course) has a home; they both posted poolside views to their respective Instagram stories. The source close to the family confirmed to People that their romance has blossomed, adding that Travis has "liked her for a while".
While we're all scratching our heads figuring out what these two talk about (does Kourtney have Enema of the State on vinyl? Is Travis a secret subscriber of Poosh?), Twitter has been ablaze in a mix of confusion and jubliation.
A source has told E! News that Scott Disick, Kourtney's ex-husband, is taking the news very well, saying that he and Kourtney "are in a great place and they have come to terms that they are strictly friends and co-parents."
"Scott has been around Travis on several occasions and thinks he's a great guy," the source said.
"As long as the kids are in a healthy situation and Kourtney's in a good place, then Scott is happy for them," they went on to say.
Whatever the case, we have our fingers crossed for a one-off spin-off: Keeping Up With The Kardashian-Barkers. Nope, scratch that. Sounds bleak.
More good stuff:
