Why is Shanna Moakler throwing shade at Kourtney Kardashian?
Alright, Shannan Moakler hasn’t verbally thrown shade at Kourtney K. Please, this is the age of social media. Likes on social media can say more than a verbal message could ever. It’s a nuanced sort of shade here, people, get with the times. Others aren’t happy with Travis Barker & Kourtney Kardashian’s Insta official relationship. One person commented the following on Moakler’s Insta:
“Shhhhiiiii that broad don’t got nothin’ on you. Travis downgraded big time.” Shanna Moakler then liked the post. And boom. There’s the shade, baby. Of course, others jumped to the defense of Kourtney, asking why a person’s physical appearance has to be brought into things.
It’s weird though
The issue here, apparently, is that it’s weird for Shanna Moakler to be so shady about things. Apparently, Travis has long been neighbors with the Kardashians and his kids are also friendly with Kourtney’s kids with her ex, Scott Disick. Barker even appeared on Keeping Up with the Kardashians a couple of times. It wasn’t a huge secret that Barker liked-liked Kourtney.
(Is anyone else flashbacking to high school right now? Just us? Cool.)
A source told E!, “They have a lot in common, and Kourtney has always been attracted to how Travis is as a parent. He’s an amazing, hands-on dad, and Kourtney loves that about him. They love relaxing at home with their kids, and everyone gets along. It’s going well, and they aren’t putting pressure on it being super serious at this point.”
Reportedly, Scott Disick is happy that Kourtney has found new love with Travis Barker. So, clearly, this was incoming. No idea why Shannan Moakler felt the need to be shady on social media, but here we are.
