After first going public with their relationship in February, Kourtney Kardashian and Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker are engaged!

Barker appears to have popped the question over the weekend after in a stunning proposal featuring a beach, candles and a whole lots of roses. 

The A-List couple have made headlines since early in their relationship thanks to many public displays of affection and drama with their exes — yes, we're talking about Scott Disick's DM-gate


Many have been cheering Kardashian on after learning about her first official engagement — not including the many times Disick suggested they get married and she swerved his question — but for Barker, Kardashian is fiancee #3.

2000s pop culture enthusiasts may remember that Barker had an MTV reality show with his ex-wife, Shanna Moakler, but they may not know that Moakler was Barker’s second wife, and he was briefly married before.

Who is Travis Barker’s first wife, Melissa Kennedy?

Before Barker and Moakler welcomed their first child in 2003 and wed in 2004, he was briefly married to another woman.


Here’s everything you need to know about Travis Barker’s first wife, Melissa Kennedy.

Barker and Melissa Lynne Kennedy got married in 2001.

The young lovebirds got hitched on Sept. 22, 2001. However, their romance was short-lived, as the pair got divorced less than a year later on Aug. 6, 2002.

Kennedy appeared in a Blink-182 documentary. 

The delightfully titled Blink-182 documentary, The Urethra Chronicles, which premiered in 1999. Her IMDb credit in the film is “self;” however, in the follow up documentary that premiered in 2002, she’s credited as “Travis Barker’s wife.”

She’s a fierce Leo.

According to her short bio on IMDb, Kennedy was born on July 27, 1982, which makes her a Leo.



She is a total girl boss.

According to LinkedIn, Kennedy is the broker and owner of LifeStyle Estates Realty and Funding Inc. in Orange County, California.

She’s lived a relatively low-key life after her split with Barker.

After splitting with Barker in 2002, Kennedy seemingly focused on her career and her professional life rather than dwelling on the past.


She's not that Melissa Kennedy.

Many pop-culture websites — including YourTango — grossly misreported bestselling author K. Melissa Kennedy as Barker's first wife. Kennedy penned "The Innovation Revolution: Discover the Genius Hiding in Plain Sight," which was released in 2017 and is a guide to building a successful business. She is a successful woman who has done great things, none of which include marrying Travis Barker.

Editor's Note: A previous version of this post listed author K. Melissa Kennedy as Barker's ex-wife, rather than Melissa Lynne Kennedy. We greatly apologize to Ms. Kennedy for the error.
