Travis Barker went to his partner, Kourtney Kardashian’s father’s grave in 2021 to inform him of his plans to marry his daughter, it has been revealed.
During the Thursday, April 28 episode of the new Hulu series The Kardashians, fans got to see more of the moment when Travis, 46, telephoned Kris Jenner, Kourtney’s mom, asking for permission to marry her 43-year-old daughter.
In the show, Kris recounted the emotional phone call with daughter, Kim Kardashian ahead of her Saturday Night Live debut and revealed that Travis had gone out of his way to also ask Kourtney and Kim’s late father, Robert Kardashian Sr., for his blessing.
“He asked for her hand in marriage, and I was like, literally, I want to cry now,” Kris, 66, said while getting her makeup done in Kim’s dressing room.
“It was so sweet and so tender. And then he said he went to your dad’s grave and asked your dad [for permission], and I just lost it.”
While crying, Kris added: “It’s all happy, I just wish your dad was here to see it. I can hardly believe that it’s the first time that she’s getting married.”
“That’s really crazy that she hasn’t been married before,” said Kim, 41, before joking, “While I’ve had enough for all of us!”
Robert Kardashian Sr. died at age 59 on Sept. 30, 2003, less than eight weeks after he was diagnosed with esophageal cancer. In addition to Kim and Kourtney, he also shared daughter Khloé Kardashian and son Rob Kardashian Jr. with Kris.
In the show Kourtney’s sisters discussed how her ex, Scott Disick — with whom she shares kids Mason, 12, Penelope, 9, and Reign, 7 would react to her upcoming engagement.
“He’s gonna have a hard time, but … they can’t put their life on hold just to tiptoe around him,” Khloé, 37, told Ellen DeGeneres ahead of an appearance on her talk show.
“No, no, I don’t think so either,” DeGeneres, 64, responded. “I just think it’s gonna be [hard], especially because she said she didn’t want to get married.”
“That’s the part that I feel bad about,” Khloé said. “But I don’t know, you snooze you lose.”
Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner also addressed the situation.
“I wonder if Scott knows,” Kylie, 24, said while driving to Santa Barbara together for Kourtney’s surprise proposal
“I know, it worries me sometimes because I just don’t know how stable he is right now,” Kendall, 26, noted. “I haven’t spoken to him on that sort of a level in a long time, so I don’t know where he’s at in his mental health.”
