ROCKSTAR Travis Barker is a famous drummer and entrepreneur.
The musician, reality star, and businessman is worth millions of dollars since his career began in 1993.
Who is Travis Barker?
Travis Barker is a musician, songwriter and producer.
He is most known as the drummer for punk rock group Blink-182.
The 45-year-old, who grew up in California, has also drummed for The Game, Machine Gun Kelly, Yelawolf, $uicideboy$, and TRV$DJAM.
Rolling Stone referred to him as “punk’s first superstar drummer” as well as one of the 100 Greatest Drummers of All Time.
In 2008, Barker was involved in a tragic private plane crash.
The accident killed four people – two pilots; Travis Barker ’s personal assistant, Chris Baker; and his security guard, Che Still.
Travis and TRV$DJAM band partner DJ AM escaped the wreckage, but Adam died a year later.
He said that escaping death changed everything for him.
“Oh, it absolutely changed my life, 110 per cent. There was just a lot for me to deal with, from survivor’s guilt to watching my assistant’s son grow up without a father. He’s the same age as my daughter. I know every day since that crash has been a blessing,” he told Kerrang last year.
“I just had to convince myself that I walked away still-alive for a reason, and I should make the most of every day.
“But until you almost die, until you look death in the face, you can’t honestly say, ‘I cherish every day like it’s my last.’ I think people that have cheated death just do it in a different way.”
What is his net worth and how did he make his money?
Barker has a net worth of $50million according to Celebrity Net Worth.
He has appeared on MTV reality series Meet the Barkers, released a memoir, and founded a fashion company and a record label.
Blink-182’s most successful album, Enema of the State, has sold more than 15 million copies.
The drummer has played small roles in several movies and TV shows, including American Pie, Two Guys, a Girl, and a Pizza Place, The Simpsons, and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.
Who is he dating?
Travis married Melissa Kennedy in 2001, but the couple divorced nine months later.
He then married former Miss USA Shanna Moakler on October 30, 2004.
The couple have two children together, Landon and Alabama.
Barker, Moakler and their kids starred on Meet the Barkers which aired for 16 episodes in 2005 and 2006.
He became addicted to painkillers after splitting up with Moakler, but he overcame his addiction after his plane crash.
Fans speculated recently that Barker may be dating Kourtney Kardashian as the two have been spotted multiple times together throughout the past few years.
Barker has made it clear that the two are strictly platonic, however.
“Kourtney’s like a dear friend. That’s it,” he told E! News at iHeartRadio Music Awards.
“I mean, I love her to death. I love her family to death. But yeah, just friends.”
Is he friends with the Kardashians?
Barker and the Kardashians have known for each other for years.
Kourtney, Khloe and Travis and are neighbors; they live down the street from each other in the same gated community in Calabasas.
Travis and Kourtney’s children are friends and regularly meet up for play dates.
He once said that he had a crush on Kim Kardashian, although their relationship remained platonic.

Kim once told Travis of her family’s plans to film Keeping Up with the Kardashians at the time Travis had his own reality show.
“Kim was like, ‘I really want to do this reality show. We’re supposed to do it with Ryan Seacrest. I just think my family’s interesting,'” he told Us Weekly.
“I gave her the best advice I could but I still remember the conversation like yesterday: ‘I think my family is interesting and it could be something.’ Well, you were absolutely right!”
