Bottled-up feelings and lack of addressing publically-made accusations may seem like the correct thing to think they will die out as the next important news steals the limelight, but that is not the case. Fuel keeps adding to the fire, and suddenly, the speculations go out of control. What is needed as a fix is an intervention that sets the record straight once and for all. However, it needs to be convincing. Otherwise, the public sees right through the charade.

People report that Travis Barker, Blink-182 drummer, set the record straight about the rumor that the feud between Kim and Kourtney Kardashian was ignited via him. Los Angeles Times conducts an interview with Barker, and according to reports gathered by People, he opens up about the feud and shuts down the bizarre rumors going off on the internet. He said that the crush he had on Kim Kardashian, which he elucidated in his memoir in 2016, was a harmless two-decade-earlier crush and had no role in the recent feud between the sisters.

People reported that the Blink-182 drummer said, “You give people a little information and they think they’ve solved the mystery of ‘this is why they’re fighting.’ It’s just so ridiculous,” adding, “It’s like, ‘Kourtney’s fans are worried about Travis. He’s a womanizer.’ Stop it,” concluding the statement with, “I shared all that stuff because I wanted to move past it. It was therapeutic for me.”

People report that in his 2016 memoir, he admitted that Kim Kardashian was “f—— hot” and he kept “secretly checking [her] out” even though he was dating Paris Hilton at the time. However, the drummer, who is now Kourtney Kardashian, 44’s husband after they married last year in bouts of three extravagant ceremonies, waived off these claims, saying, “That’s her sister. She knows we used to talk. Nothing bad was going on.”

On the other hand, Kim Kardashian also settled ignited speculation of her and Barker hooking up in 2021 follower-submitted question on Instagram, saying, “NO! False narrative!” adding, “We’ve been friends for years, and I’m so happy for him and Kourt.”

As for the incessant feud between the two sisters that surfaced on their reality TV show ‘Kardashians’ this year, the two seem to have put the squabbling behind them. What was the cause behind it? Let’s take a look.

It all began when Kim agreed to be the creative designer for a Dolce and Gabbana show where she pulled out a 90s theme runway. This steered dangerously close to Kourtney Karshadian’s wedding to Travis Barker, which was allegedly based on the same theme by the Italian designer house. The two confronted each other on an episode on The Kardashians where accusations were thrown in the air by Kourtney, after which Kim brought up details of how the former stole the latter’s idea from her wedding with Kanye West. In her words,

“I got married in Italy. Am I saying you copied me by getting married in Italy? Who performed at my wedding? Andrea Bocelli. Who performed at Kourtney’s wedding? Andrea Bocelli.”

Additionally, People reported that for Kim’s 43rd birthday, Kourtney completely crushed the waving rumors through her heartfelt post,

“People think the fights they’ve seen on TV are bad if only they got to witness the hair-pulling, nail-digging ones from early high school.”

She continued, “The joys of sisterhood. I love you deeply forever and always. May God bless this year with love and happiness and abundant joy ❤️.”
