Kourtney Kardashian has a new boyfriend and he’s a familiar face: Travis Barker.
The couple, rumored to have been an article for weeks, revealed their relationship this week with a snapshot of their clasped hands on Kardashian’s Instagram page.
The photo doesn’t include a caption, but Barker notably commented on it with a black heart emoji.
Actor Khadijah Haqq McCray, a friend of the Kardashian family, revealed how the romance came about in the comments, writing, “When Friends Become Lovers ❤️.”
Barker has been in the orbit of the Kardashian-Jenner family for years. The band member Blink-182 and +44 reportedly even briefly fell in love with Kourtney’s sister Kim.
Kardashian was previously in a relationship with model Younes Bendjima and television personality Scott Disick, with whom she shares her three children, while Barker was previously married to model Shanna Moakler.
