Kardashian fans slam Kourtney & Travis Barker's 'gross' parenting move despite kids' plea for them to stop | The Sun

KARDASHIAN fans have slammed Kourtney and her husband Travis Barker for their frequent PDA around their kids.

The newlyweds, who share six children from their previous relationships, are often seen kissing and hugging in public.

Speaking on Amanda Hirsch’s Not Skinny But Not Fat podcast on Tuesday, 43-year-old Kourtney opened up about her and 46-year-old Travis’ home life.

The pair share a total of six children, including Kourtney’s three young kids from her relationship with Scott Disick, 39, and Travis’ three older kids from his marriage to Shanna Moakler, 47.

“So you’re all over each other, all day, for real?” asked Amanda.

“Yes, but we try to be respectful too of the kids and want everyone to feel comfortable,” the Lemme founder replied.

“Sometimes we’ll be hugging or just staring into each other’s eyes and the kids will be like ‘Ew, gross!’, even the older kids.”

She continued: “But also, they love that we love each other so much.”

Kourtney is a mom to Mason, 12, Penelope, 10, and Reign, seven.

Travis’ kids are older, with his son Landon, 18, already dating Charli D’Amelio.

He also shares Alabama, 16, and step-daughter, Atiana De La Hoya, 23, with his ex Shanna.

However, some fans, who have seen Kourtney and Travis’ frequent kissing and cuddling on social media, the red carpet, and on episodes of The Kardashians, think that the kids may feel uncomfortable about their PDA


Taking the discussion to social media, one fan shared: “You know the kids are likely freaked out by it, and I’m sure their friends have said things to them – especially Mason's friends due to their age.”

Another agreed: “The PDA is definitely over the top and the kids are justified in being grossed out.

“I mean a lot of us are grossed out and we’re just watching it on TV, so hopefully for their sake, Kourtney and Travis are reeling it in and respecting their feelings.”

But one fan claimed that it was better for the children to see an example of a healthy relationship versus Kourtney and Scott’s former partnership, which was tarnished by his infidelity.

“Better for kids to see an excess of love than disrespect and misery.”


Kourtney has previously defended her and Travis’ famous canoodling with a blog post on her website Poosh.

"It can be easy to see it as over-the-top or obnoxious, but we’re here to make an argument that PDA can be a form of self-care,” the article read.

Kourtney claimed that her public closeness with Travis helps her “be present and pretend like no one else is there.”

The two lovebirds tied the knot in May, with an elaborate ceremony in Italy that was attended by their blended families.
