Something tells me this story will bring a smile to Paris Hilton’s gloss encrusted lips. Rumor now has it Shanna Moakler and Travis Barker may have a private sex tape of theirs leaked on the internet.
Travis Landon Barker (born November 14, 1975) is an American drummer and the current drummer for pop punk trio Blink-182. He has also been a drummer for several side projects including +44, Box Car Racer, Transplants and Expensive Taste.
In 1996, Barker joined his first touring band, playing drums for The Aquabats as The Baron Von Tito. He recorded one album with them, The Fury of the Aquabats!, in 1997. His career took off when he joined up with pop punk band, Blink-182 in 1998. Barker became known for his mohawk and his tendency to perform shirtless, revealing a multitude of tattoos. Barker has since established himself as a versatile drummer, producing and making guest appearances in music projects of numerous music genres including hip-hop, punk rock, alternative rock, ska, pop and even country. He has gained significant acceptance within the hip-hop community in particular and often collaborates with artists to compose rock-tinged remixes to their songs.
He founded clothing company Famous Stars and Straps in 1999 and LaSalle Records in 2004. Companies such as DC Shoes and Zildjian cymbals have co-designed products in his name.
Barker’s marriage to former Miss USA Shanna Moakler was featured in MTV’s Meet the Barkers (2005–2006). His marriage and personal life have been considerable media fodder following his divorce and a brief relationship with Hilton Hotel heiress Paris Hilton in 2006. In early 2009, Barker and Moakler decided to get back together. On April 1, 2009, reps for both Barker and Moakler confirmed they had split following an argument at their home which required police attention. The argument was said to be caused after Barker confronted Moakler about her allegedly having an affair with Gerard Butler while he was recovering from his plane crash. Moaklers reps deny any reports of an affair.
Shanna Lynn Moakler (born March 28, 1975 in Providence, Rhode Island, United States) is an American model, actor, reality television star and a former beauty queen. She was the winner of the Miss New York USA pageant in 1995 and was crowned as Miss USA in 1995. Moakler began modeling at age 15 and was later chosen as a Playmate of the Month for Playboy magazine in December 2001.
Moakler eventually branched out into an acting career, appearing as a regular for two seasons on the USA Network television series Pacific Blue in 1998, and in 2005 she starred as herself on the reality television series Meet the Barkers with her then husband Travis Barker, drummer in the rock band Blink-182. The series aired for two seasons on MTV.
Moakler’s private life has been much discussed in the media, including her relationship with rock singer Billy Idol, as well as her relationships with Olympic champion boxer Oscar de la Hoya and Hollywood actor Dennis Quaid.
