Travis Barker's ex insists she 'caught him having an affair' with Kim Kardashian years before his romance with Kourtney
TRAVIS Barker's ex-wife Shanna Moakler has claimed she "caught him having an affair" with Kim Kardashian.
Shanna alleged that Travis cheated on her with Kim during their 2004-2008 marriage and that she has "texts" to prove it.

Travis has been dating Kim's older sister Kourtney since the end of 2020 and sources close to Kim denied the affair rumors earlier this week.
Shanna told Us Weekly on Tuesday: “I divorced my ex because, I saw them [Travis and Kim]. I caught them having an affair.”
“Someone sent me all their [text] conversations and I’m also close friends with people who were there, while things were happening."
The former beauty queen claimed Travis hooked up with Kim before Keeping Up With The Kardashians came out in 2007.
Kim and Travis met in the early 2000s while she was working as an assistant for her best friend Paris Hilton.
Shanna claimed: “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."
The former model – who shares Landon, 17, and Alabama, 15, with Travis – claimed she asked him "not to use" Kim as a model because she was friends with Paris.
She said: “We were working on our marriage and trying to heal through that affair, that infidelity, [but] he continued to [work with her]. And then I received all the text messages and the other third parties kind of let me know. It’s something I was well aware of.”
Travis admitted in his 2015 book that he kept "checking Kim out" and thought she was "hot" when he went to Amsterdam with Paris and the SKIMS founder.
“I kept on secretly checking out Kim, telling Lil Chris, ‘I don’t care if she’s the closet girl, she’s f**king hot,’” he wrote in Can I Say: Living Large, Cheating Death, and Drums, Drums, Drums.
He stayed in touch with Kim after they got back to the US.
We went to dinner, we went to lunch," he wrote.
"You might think I would be doing the worst things with this girl because of her tapes, but it was the exact opposite of any other encounter I’ve had with a woman: with Kim, I wanted to be nothing but a gentleman to her. It was so weird."
The Blink-182 drummer insisted he "never touched" Kim during his marriage to Shanna – although Shanna claimed he's "100 per cent" lying.
Travis also told Us Weekly in 2015 that he "loves curvy girls" and thought Kim was "eye candy".
Shanna spread the rumor about Kim and Travis last week – although sources close to the KUWTK star denied them.
Since then, Aubrey O'Day's claims that Kim and Travis hooked up have resurfaced.
Back in July 2020, the Danity Kane singer alleged that they were dating at a 4th of July party, but didn't specify what year.
Meanwhile, Kourtney and Travis went Instagram official in February this year after weeks of romance rumors.
