Travis Barker and Kourtney Kardashian have been peppering Instagram with their snaps since their relationship kicked off and it’s been one helluva ride, lemme tell ya.
Their romantic posts have spanned everything from trips to Disneyland to smooches by the fire to snowboarding.
But it’s the ~steamy~ posts Travis Barker and Kourtney Kardashian have been sharing that really stick out in my mind, and ooh boy, there have been plenty of those ones.
And now, after butt grabs and thumb-licking, we have reached the vial of blood phase of their internet oversharing.
A coupla days back, Travis Barker posted a bloody pic on his Instagram Story, featuring a tube of blood with his name and birthdate on it. There was absolutely no context given, so we have no idea why he had the blood extracted or, perhaps more importantly, why he posted it to Instagram, but yes, I’m sure this is exactly the kind of shit the creator of Instagram had in mind when they designed the app.
To make matters even more strange, his girlfriend, Kourtney Kardashian, then re-posted the photo on her own Instagram Story, adding a black heart emoji over the pic (???).
It’s worth noting that almost three years ago, Travis Barker was hospitalised due to blood clots in his arms, so I’m not sure if this is in any way connected.
The blood clots even prevented him from drumming at the time, and Blink-182 famously had to postpone their tour.
“Friends, Travis Barker is suffering from blood clots in both arms and unfortunately cannot perform until cleared to do so by his medical team. The situation is being closely monitored,” the band wrote in a statement on Twitter in June 2018. “Due to this situation it is with great regret that the blink-182 ‘Kings of the Weekend’ Las Vegas residency dates this weekend must be rescheduled.”

But anyway, that’s neither here nor there, the question is: why did Travis Barker post a photo of his blood on an app that’s all about aesthetics and also, why did Kourtney Kardashian reshare it? With a black heart? What’s the end game here?
