Travis Barker Disses His Wife on MySpace
LAist has seen at lot of fucked up shit in our day, but this has got to be the most childish move between divorcing love birds ever.
Travis Barker, the talented and tattooed drummer of Blink-182, who came off as a geniune prick on the reality show "Meet The Barkers", went on his MySpace page yesterday and described what his wife's day consists of - by hour.
If we are to believe the percussionist, his former Miss USA and Playboy centerfold wife Shanna Moakler sleeps half of the day, relies on nannies to take care of the kids, and drinks and parties all night while having an affair on her man. Meanwhile Travis is the perfect father, teaching and coddling his "babies" while earning a tremendous living as a rock star, producer, and business owner.
Even if that is precisely what is going on, and is what is the core of their reasons for divorce, since when did the court of public opinion move to the flickering pages of MySpace? And since when did it become okay for a gentleman to diss the mother of his children on the Internet for all to see?
The problem with these reality shows is that we learn that our heroes aren't all that. We don't want to think that Hef is only boinking one of his girlfriends, we don't want to know that Ozzy hates touring and has dog poop lining his mansion, we don't want to know that Nick Lachey would rather do laundry or watch college hoops than bone his fine and ditzy wife. And we definately don't need to know that when Travis Barker thinks of the studio to record his music he immediately thinks of money.
- During the hours from2pm-5pm im @ my $tudio working on the 44 record(my new band) in studio A and in B i produce trax for TOO- SHORT,B-REAL, PAUL WALL, TI, SKINHEAD ROB...it's my passion, music is everything to me.
Although we now know exactly why mu$ic is everything to him, it's clear that he respects it more than he does his wife because we at LAist don't recall a MySpace posting about Mark and Tom of Blink when they decided to split.photo via Tr@Vi$'s MySpace of someone other than his baby momma
