Shanna Moakler shared how her ex-husband Travis Barker and his now-wife Kourtney Kardashian were alienated as a parent. The former pageant queen accused the couple of trying to one-up her as a parent to her and Barker’s three kids. In a preview of her appearance on the Dumb Blonde podcast posted by host Bunnie XO on TikTok on Jan. 8, Moakler takes a dig at the pair. Moakler and Barker, who tied the knot in 2004 and later got divorced in 2008, share two kids, Landon, 20, and Alabama, 18. Let’s dig into the details to learn more about the story.
Shanna Moakler was there was some parental alienation going on
The 48-year-old told Bunnie XO, “When Travis got with Kourtney, there was some parental alienation going on there, where Travis—even when we weren’t together—always wanted to be the ‘super dad. I’m the best parent. I’m the this and that,’ and I’m like, ‘Bro, you win.’”
Moreover, the beauty queen said that the Kardashians’ posh lifestyle felt at the time that her kids “got caught up” in it as “there was a lot of glitter and fame and they watched them on TV and now their dad is dating one and they’re going to be on the show.”
She continues, “They’re buying them Prada, and they’re buying them gifts, and they’re going to these events and they’re meeting Kanye [West] and all this big stuff.”
“I can’t give them that,” the mother of three admitted. “I don’t have the money to do that. I can’t buy you guys Prada every other week and stuff. My house isn’t a mansion like Travis. I don’t have a movie theater. I don’t have golf carts for you kids to drive.”
“I removed myself so that they couldn’t bond over my children hating me,” she shared, saying she told her children to,”go do what you guys need to do and when you’re ready, I will be here loving you unconditionally.”
“I’ve had conversations with them since,” the model. On top of that Shanna who shares Atiana with ex Oscar De La Hoya and her two youngest with Travis revealed that her children apologized for being “influenced” by the glamour. “We all know the truth. I go to bed at night and I sleep very, very well.”
