Melissa Kennedy 2001-2002

Musician Travis first got married in 2001 to 39 year old Melissa Kennedy.

A swift marriage, the dad-of-two and brunette beauty called it off only a year later.

While not much is known of the pair’s romance, they were regularly seen posing in pictures together cuddled up at various celebrity and music events.

In one snap, Melissa rocked a short cropped ‘do and grinned next to her former beau, who had chosen to wear a red sports shirt, as they sweetly held hands.

Shanna Moakler 2004-2008

The 2000s rocker also wed ex-wife Shanna Moakler, 46, in a gothic ceremony in 2004, but the couple were only together four years before they split.

During their whirlwind relationship, the pair welcomed children Landon Asher, 18, and Alabama Luella, 15, into the world, and Travis is also step-dad to Shanna’s daughter Atiana whom she had with Oscar De La Hoya.

The former couple even had their own reality TV show called Meet the Barkers in 2006.

Sadly, the duo’s rocky relationship was short-lived, and they faced a rollercoaster of arguments and problems throughout their marriage.

Travis filed for divorce in August 2006 – trying once more to make things work before ending their marriage for good in 2008.

Despite their issues in the past, a source told US Weekly early this year that the divorced parents “are in a very good place coparenting their children”.

Paris Hilton 2006

Following the divorce filing to Shanna, Travis briefly started seeing gorgeous socialite Paris Hilton, 40, in 2006.

It was short-lived as the Blink-182 star was determined to give his marriage another try, but while seeing Paris, the star was also interested in Kim Kardashian, who was her assistant at the time.

Speaking to US Weekly, he admitted he loves “curvy girls” so couldn’t help staring at Kim, despite enjoying “hanging out with Paris”.

“Kim was eye candy. I was no way disrespectful to Paris, but I couldn’t keep my eyes off Kim!” Travis added.

Travis and Paris enjoyed a brief fling

Rita Ora 2015

Travis enjoyed a relationship with fellow musician and actress Rita Ora, 30, in the autumn of 2015.

At the time, Travis said the relationship “came out of nowhere” following a chance meeting at a charity basketball game when his friend told him to take a quick picture with the star.

“And I look over, and there she is,” the rocker remembered. “We’d never met, and she’s just, she’s stunning. She’s a sweetheart.”

“She’s awesome. She’s one of those great things that happen that you’re like, ‘Whoa, wasn’t expecting that,” the musician told the publication, going on to add that he never “second-guesses” things.

Unfortunately, the pair’s dalliance only lasted a month or two.

Other relationships

Travis was also briefly linked to former Miss USA Tara Conner in 2006, and enjoyed a fling with model Arianny Celeste in early 2015.

The duo reportedly met at one of his concerts and it wasn’t long before they were “crazy about each other”, according to US publication People.

The news site also claimed the pair were having “tons of fun” but the relationship wasn’t exactly serious, and it wasn’t long before the romance fizzled out.

Later on, Kourtney’s sister Kim, 40, gave fans a closer look at the sparkler and also posted a video of the lovebirds barely able to keep their hands off each other.

Kourtney was wearing a stunning black lace dress for the proposal, her sleek black locks styled into her new bob cut.

While the tattooed Travis kept it casual in a stripy T-shirt and jeans for his big moment.

Details remain scarce on the couple’s wedding plans at this stage, but the nuptials are sure to be just as quirky and bold as the pair themselves.
