Kim Kardashian denies rumours of past relationship with Travis Barker

Kim Kardashian has shut down rumours speculating she was previously involved with sister Kourtney Kardashian's boyfriend Travis Barker.

During a fan Q&A session on her Instagram Stories on Wednesday, Kim denied she and the Blink-182 drummer have ever been romantically involved.

Her denial comes after the 40-year-old reality TV star was accused of having an affair with Kourtney's new man by the drummer's ex-wife Shanna Moakler.

However, when asked by one fan, "Did you hook up with Travis Barker?" she responded: "NO! False narrative! We've been friends for years and I'm so happy for him and Kourt."

Shanna claimed the mother-of-three wasn't the first Kardashian sister her ex had romanced.

Earlier in the month, Shanna replied to an unknown Instagram user: "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!"

While Travis originally refuted the rumour in his 2015 autobiography Can I Say, which revealed he didn't even meet Kim until 2006 — after his split from Shanna - the only comment he has since offered is a caption on a picture he posted days later that reads: "Silence is also an answer".

Kourtney, 42, and Barker, 45, confirmed their relationship over Valentine's Day weekend, and have conducted a high-profile romance in the months since, with plenty of public displays of affection.

Meanwhile, Kim filed for divorce from her husband Kanye West in February.
