Someone should check Kris Jenner's health
because things aren't going well in the Calabasas cul-de-sac, where friends
become lovers and those lovers may have had an affair with your sister.
and Travis Barker
, who used to be neighbors and big-time finger-sucking fans, are now months into a new romance that has irritated his ex-wife Shanna Moakler, who has called the couple's excessive PDA "weird."
She now claims that Barker had an affair with his new girlfriend's sister, Kim Kardashian
, while he and Moakler were still married, years before the Blink-182 drummer and reality TV star linked up.
“I divorced my ex because I saw them — I caught them having an affair,” she explained to Us Weekly, explaining that the alleged affair took place in the early 2000s, when Kim Kardashian was Paris Hilton
's de facto assistant.
“Someone sent me all of their [text] conversations, and I also have close friends who were present at the time,” she explained.
Moakler, who was married to Barker for four years before divorcing him in 2008, went on to say, “He had already had an affair with Paris Hilton. And... at the time Kim was Paris’ closet organizer, they were best friends. And he started using [Kim] as a model for [his clothing company], Famous Stars and Straps.”
Given Kim Kardashian's ties to Hilton, she said she asked her then-husband "not to use" her as a model because the couple was "working on our marriage and trying to heal through that affair, that infidelity," but he "continued to [work with her]."
“I received all of the text messages
, and the other third parties kind of let me know; it was something I was well aware of,” Moakler added. “He is dating her sister now, so I think that would be really strange.”
Several unnamed sources have refuted Moakler's claim, with one telling Page Six that "Travis and Kim have never had a romantic relationship" and that "they were friends who met through Paris Hilton, and that is also how Kourtney and Travis were introduced."
The Kardashian camp has yet to publicly dismiss the rumors, but the long-running rumor has gained traction in recent days.
Alabama Barker, Barker and Moakler's daughter, recently shared a screenshot of an apparent DM from her mother that read, in part, "I divorced Travis because I caught him having an affair with Kim! Now he's in love with her sister...I'm not the bad guy!"
The musician hasn't been shy about his past crush on Kim Kardashian, telling Us Weekly in 2015, "How could you not stare at Kim? Mind you, I enjoyed hanging out with Paris, but I love curvy girls. Kim was eye candy. I wasn't disrespectful to Paris, but I couldn't keep my eyes off Kim."
According to Us Weekly, despite their relationship, he insisted in his 2015 book
that he "never touched" Kim Kardashian.
Tristan Thompson, somewhere out there, is breathing a sigh of relief that he isn't involved in this shambles.
