Travis Barker revealed he had a huge crush on Kim K and shit is awkward

scandal 23/05/2022

Travis Barker used to have the hots for Kim Kardashian in a big way - so much so, that people now think he originally moved to Calabasas to be closer to her, not Kourtney. 

Fans uncovered the juicy details in Travis' memoir and previous interviews after a comment made by Kris Jenner on a recent episode of The Kardashians about how long Travis has loved Kourt. 

"Do you want to know the real reason why he moved to Calabasas?" Kris asks Kourtney. 

"He said: 'Because I knew she lived in Calabasas, and I knew she was the love of my life, and I didn't even know her like that, but I just knew if I couldn't date her or be with her because she was with someone else that at least I could live by her.'"

Okay, sounds cute (if a little stalker-y), but HERE'S THE TEA: Travis wrote at length about his crush on Kim in his 2015 memoir, 'Can I Say: Living Large, Cheating Death, and Drums, Drums, Drums'. 

In the book, Travis refers to Kim as "f*king hot" and "eye candy" and talks about "secretly checking her out". 

"How could you not stare at Kim?" he said in a 2015 interview with Us Weekly.

I couldn't keep my eyes off her.

Travis also talked about the pair going on lots of dinner and lunch dates and said Kim would come over to his house to swim and watch the fourth of July fireworks together.

"You might think I would be doing the worst things with this girl because of her [sex] tapes, but it was the exact opposite of any other encounter I've had with a woman: with Kim, I wanted to be nothing but a gentleman to her. It was so weird,” he wrote. 

We'd be really sweet around each other, like little kids, and then when we were apart, she'd call me and say, 'I want to see you again.' 'Me too,' I'd say.

Don't know about you guys, but we officially have the ick. 

Travis did insist that he and Kim "never touched eachother", saying "it wasn't meant to be", but it's still giving us the heebie jeebies, especially as this info has come to light just as Kourtney and Travis have gotten married in Italy. 

If we're feeling awks about this, how do we think Kourt is coping?
