KOURTNEY Kardashian has 'grown close' to Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker – and fans have spotted their flirty exchanges on Instagram.
The reality star has been friends with the musician for years but insiders say they’re closer than ever – and her friends think romance could be on the horizon.
"Kourtney and Travis are very close and they have unreal chemistry," says the friend.
"They talk almost every day and everyone around them is desperate for them to get together."
This week, fans spotted a flirty exchange on Instagram between the pair – Kourtney posted about the musician’s favourite movie, True Romance, and he replied "you’re so cool" – and spotted that the eldest Kardashian sister had splashed out on a rare $795 Prada bag for Travis’s daughter Alabama.
"It was a very interesting gift for Travis’s 15 year old daughter – it’s the same bag Kourt bought Khloe for Christmas," says the insider.
Fans on Twitter spotted the gift – and went wild, saying "kourtney and travis barker??" and "TRAVIS BARKER AND KOURTNEY KARDASHIAN AS A POTENTIAL COUPLE? NO WAY….." with another saying it was "suss" for Kourtney to post about the Blink 182 star’s favourite movie.
"Travis and Kourtney have so much in common," the insider added. "They’re dedicated parents, and she relies on him for advice on everything from work projects to family rows.
"They’ve both been in on-off relationships with former partners for years. But that also means they have a lot of baggage – they have five kids between them!
Adding: "There’s a reason that Kourtney normally dates younger guys with no kids who keep things casual – she’s scared of getting her heart broken again like with Scott.
"Plus there’s the drama of Scott being around too – he acts very jealous of Travis, and is always asking about what’s going on."
Kourtney, 41, and Scott split in 2015 after pictures emerged of him cosying up with an ex, and have three kids together – Mason, 11, Reign, 6, and Penelope, 8.
Since their breakup she’s dated models Younes Bendjima, 24, and Luka Sabbat, 23.
Travis, 45, married Playboy model Shanna Moakler in 2004, but filed for divorce in 2006.
However, they were on and off until 2015, when they split for good. The couple share two children: Landon, 17, and Alabama, 15, and Travis co-parents Shanna’s daughter Atiana, 19.
Travis and Kourtney have known each other for over six years since Khloe moved onto the same road in Calabasas, California.
Travis and his then-wife Shanna – and Travis even appeared on a few episodes of Keeping Up With The Kardashians through his son Landon’s friendship with Kourtney’s son Mason.
Kourtney and Travis were first linked in 2018, when they attended church together, then went for dinner – but denied they were a couple.
Travis and Kourtney were linked again in March last year – however, he denied the romance, saying: "Kourtney's like a dear friend. That's it…
"I mean, I love her to death. I love her family to death. But yeah, just friends."
But since then the pair have been spotted together several times, working out at Kourtney’s Calabasas home, and Kourtney’s extravagant Christmas gift has only fuelled rumours they’re getting more serious.
"Kourtney is so cautious about starting new relationships because of the kids – and he’s not being Kourtney’s normal 'type'," says the insider.
"But everyone around them is convinced they’re meant for each other and are hoping they’ll give the relationship a chance."
