Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker are now ‘dating’ as their friendship turned ‘romantic’

KOURTNEY Kardashian and Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker have taken their friendship to the next level and are now romantically "dating."

Earlier this month the couple had reportedly "grown close" and were leaving flirty notes on each other's Instagram.

Kourtney, 41, and Travis, 45, are now officially dating, a source has told People.

The pair spent the weekend together in Palm Springs where they both shared beautiful poolside views to their social media.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star and her new beau relaxed at her mom Kris Jenner's home in the tropical California city.

An insider told the outlet: "They're in Palm Springs together. They've been dating for about a month or two.

The source added: "They've been friends for a long time but it's turned romantic. Travis has liked her for a while."

Speculation of their relationship came earlier this month when the legendary drummer left a flirty comment on the Poosh founder's sexy Instagram photo.

Kourtney flaunted her toned figure in a skin tight black bra and undergarment shorts, captioned: “Sweet dreams."

Fans were thrilled by the engagement, as they supported the idea of the rocker and reality star taking their friendship to the next step.

 “Here for this one 100%," one wrote while another gushed: “If you guys are dating, I’m soo here for it."

A third was enthralled by the idea, commenting: “I want this to happen, Kourt needs a little excitement."

Kourtney and Travis have been very close for some time, speaking almost every day, but have claimed to keep things friendly until now.

The rock star also lives in Calabasas California, where the Kardashians famously thrive, and he has even made guest appearances on KUWTK over the years.

In March of 2019, Travis denied any sort of love interest rumors between the pair, telling People: "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."

Over the Christmas holiday, the reality star splurged on a $795 Prada bag for Travis' daughter Alabama, which was reportedly the "same bag Kourt bought Khloe for Christmas," an insider disclosed.

The source continued: "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!"

The insider then spoke on Kourtney's dating history, explaining: "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 [Disick].

"Plus there’s the drama of Scott being around too - he acts very jealous of Travis, and is always asking about what’s going on."

Kourtney and her ex Scott Disick broke up in 2015, after sharing twelve years and three children together, Mason, 11, Reign, six, and Penelope, eight.

Travis was married to Playboy model Shanna Moakler from 2004-2008, and the two have one son Landon, 17, and one daughter Alabama, 15.
