Is Shanna Moakler still in love with Travis Barker? Ex-wife's crying pics concern fans
The whole world appears to be celebrating Travis Barker and Kourtney Kardashian's engagement barring one person. Barker's ex-wife Shanna Moakler has been reacting quite negatively towards their relationship since the very beginning. She had earlier accused Kourtney Kardashian and her ex of putting “a wedge in between” her and her teenage kids, and also blamed the Kardashians for "destroying" her family. After the news of Travis Barker and Kourtney K's engagement surfaced, Moakler reacted with a quote saying "Before you ask why someone hates you, ask yourself why you give a f**k," following up with an additional statement: "Temporarily closed for spiritual maintenance."
Recently, Moakler was photographed crying over phone while walking on the street in Los Angeles. The photos surfaced soon afterward Barker covered a tattoo of Shanna's name with that of a scorpion and a tattoo of Kourtney's lips. Moakler did not appear to have handled the news well, as she was visibly distraught and in tears while talking over the phone. It is unclear who she was talking to and what was the actual reason behind her breakdown. However, fans connected the dots and speculated that the 46-year-old Playboy model is still in love with her ex.
Travis Barker had married model and actress Shanna Moakler in 2004. Moakler won the Miss New York USA pageant in 1995 and was the first runner-up at Miss USA the same year. She began modeling at the age of 15 and was later chosen as a Playmate of the Month for Playboy magazine in December 2001. She started her television career in 1996 with appearances on 'Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman', Due South' and NBC movie of the week 'Til the End', also starring Shannen Doherty. In 1998, she appeared in an episode of 'Timecop' playing the role of Allison Kendall, and became a regular on the television police drama 'Pacific Blue'.
She dated British musician Billy Idol in 1997, and the couple appeared in a scene together in the Adam Sandler-Drew Barrymore romcom 'The Wedding Singer'. She later dated boxer Oscar De La Hoya in October 1997, with whom she had a daughter. The relationship abruptly ended in 2000 when the actor saw De La Hoya escorting another woman to the Latin Grammy Awards when she was at home watching the show on television.
She also dated actor Dennis Quaid and Hells Angels biker Bryan Sollima. Moakler married Travis Barker, drummer for the bands Blink-182, +44, Box Car Racer, and The Transplants and formerly of The Aquabats, when Barker proposed to her in the elevator entrance to the Haunted Mansion ride at Disneyland. The couple married in 2004 and have two children together: a son, Landon Asher Barker, and a daughter, Alabama Luella Barker.
Barker filed for divorce in August 2006. Moakler was devastated by the end of their marriage. Eventually, reports that Barker was seeing Paris Hilton began to circulate, leading to a confrontation between Moakler and Hilton in a Los Angeles nightclub Hyde Lounge, where they accused each other of battery. Following the divorce, Moakler and Barker were in an on-and-off relationship, spending romantic dinners and throwing parties for each other.
Moakler landed in controversy recently after she liked a mean comment online which said that Travis Barker "downgraded" on his choice of partner after choosing Kourtney Kardashian. Later, she also started the rumor that Barker allegedly dated Kim Kardashian before fuelling a romance with her sister.
Moakler and Barker share two children together — Alabama, 15, and Landon, 18. Both of them reacted happily to the news of their father's engagement with Kourtney Kardashian. Soon afterward, Moakler appeared to have deleted all photos of Alabama and Landon Barket from her news feed. The move did not sit well even with the most ardent fans of Moakler. However, the model still appears to be processing the reality and struggling to move on.
