Travis Barker Finally Addresses Those Kourtney Kardashian Dating Rumors
2019 iHeartRadio Music Awards: Every Must-See Look

The Blink-182 drummer addressed speculation he's romantically involved with the "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star.

Travis Barker finally addressed all of those rumors linking him to Kourtney Kardashian by calling them just that -- rumors.

The 43-year-old Blink-182 drummer told PEOPLE at Thursday's iHeartRadio Music Awards that he's not romantically involved with the 39-year-old "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star, despite recent reports claiming otherwise.

"Kourtney's like a dear friend. That's it," he said. "I mean, I love her to death. I love her family to death. But yeah, just friends."

The musician was joined on the red carpet by his three children: daughter Alabama, 13, and son Landon, 15 -- who he shares with ex-wife Shanna Moakler -- and stepdaughter Atiana, 19, Shanna's daughter with Oscar de la Hoya.


As for Kourtney, she's busy juggling three kids of her own: son Mason, 9, daughter Penelope, 6, and son Reign, 4, who she shares with ex-boyfriend Scott Disick.

While Scott is still going strong with girlfriend Sofia Richie, Kourtney is seemingly enjoying the single life after parting ways with Algerian model Younes Bendigma last year.

After nearly two years of dating -- and a super-long Italian vacation -- Kourtney dumped the 25-year-old. The two reportedly started having problems as soon as they got back from Europe, but when Younes was photographed getting cozy with an Instagram model in Mexico, that's when Kourt pulled the plug. Younes didn't handle the breakup well and went off on "the media" in a series of Instagram Stories.

But TMZ reported that the two ran into each other at Alfred Tea on Melrose Place just last month and that they seemed to be on good terms. The person who snapped the photos said Younes was in line ordering when Kourtney and her friend approached him. Kourtney and Younes reportedly got handsy with one another, and she kissed him on the cheek when they said goodbye.
