Travis Barker’s daughter has accused his ex-wife Shanna Moakler of being an absent mom.
The 15-year-old took to Instagram to speak out after her mother Shanna made comments about Travis’ new relationship with Kourtney Kardashian, including the claim that her marriage to the Blink-182 drummer ended when he had an affair with Kourtney’s sister Kim.
Alabama shared what appeared to be a screenshot of a message from Shanna to someone unknown, and wrote in the caption: ‘Everybody thinks my mother is amazing, Matthew is nothing but awful to her not only that but he cheats on her.
Alabama Barker has claimed mom Shanna Moakler is an absent mom after Shanna, 46, made a claim that ex Travis Barker cheated on her with Kourtney’s sister Kim when they were married
Shanna, 46, has been dating model and actor Matthew Rondeau on and off in recent months.
He has been criticized for never posting photos of the mother-of-three on his social media while Shanna regularly documents their romantic escapades.
‘My mom has never completely been in my life, can you guys stop painting her out to be an amazing mom. Did your mom ask to see you on Mother’s Day cause mine didn’t? I’m done keeping a secret, reality shows.’ Alabama added.
In Shanna’s message, which appeared to be in response to an unknown Instagram user, the model said: ‘I divorced Travis because I caught him having an affair with Kim! Now he’s in love with her sister…It’s all gross…I’m not the bad guy!’

She also claimed that Travis controls Alabama’s social media and that she ‘gets blamed for [Alabama’s] sexualization’.
‘How does a father allow her to act like that and do lives at 4am? With men twice her age…’ she wrote.
It’s not just Alabama but Shanna’s other child, son Landon, 17, who thinks Shanna could be more involved in her kids’ lives.
Responding to a TikTok commentator who implied that he and his sibling were siding with their father, Landon replied: ‘Actually, if you weren’t such a dumbass, you would realize our mom has never been in our lives and isn’t in our lives like our dad is.’
And Landon has also made it clear which of his parents’ relationships he supports.
On April 16, Landon called Shanna and Matthew the ‘most on and off relationship ever’ and told his mother, ‘You can do so much better.’ in comments under one of Shanna’s posts featuring her younger beau.

He then commented on a photo of Travis and girlfriend Kourtney Kardashian nearly two weeks later and called the couple’s romance ‘True love’ on April 28.
Shanna and Travis were married from October 2004 to 2006 and once had their own reality show, Meet The Barkers, which documented their everyday life with their kids. Shanna also has 22-year-old daughter Atiana with ex partner Oscar De La Hoya.
Travis was known to briefly date Kim’s pal Paris Hilton after his divorce but Shanna’s claims he dated Kim are unsubstantiated.
In response to Alabama’s claims, Shanna was asked why her kids spend more time with their father in an Instagram Q&A.

‘Our mom has never been in our lives and isn’t in our lives like our dad is.’ Alabama’s brother Landon also recently commented on social media
‘Because he lives behind two gates, has a mega mansion and is cooler than me.’ she replied.
‘LOL, we have shared custody but our kids are older. We are very close.’
It comes after Shanna spoke to People about Travis’ PDA with girlfriend Kourtney.
‘I’m very much over my ex,’ the actress, 46, told the site. ‘It’s been a long time. However, do I think some of the PDA that he’s doing with her is weird? [Yes].’
Not only that, but Shanna pointed out some similarities between Travis’ new romance with Kourtney and their former marriage.

‘Because he lives behind two gates, has a mega mansion and is cooler than me.’ Shanna replied to a user who asked why Travis spends more time with her kids
‘The movie, True Romance, that I feel like they’ve been bonding over was the theme of our wedding. Our daughter’s named after the character in the movie. Flying banners overhead like we did on Meet the Barkers. Stuff like that… I just think it’s weird,’ Shanna told the site.
Travis got a True Romance inspired tattoo on his leg back in March, and the couple regularly quote the movie in their social media comments. More recently Travis had a plane fly a banner wishing Kourtney a happy birthday.
‘My kids seem to really like her and her family, so that’s key,’ Shanna told People.
