'Barkers' couple Shanna Moakler, Travis Barker have divorce finalized
By Christopher Rocchio, 02/11/2008
It's officially official: ex-Meet the Barkers co-stars Shanna Moakler and Travis Barker are exes.
"No, I'm no longer with her," Barker toldPeople over the weekend at the fifth annual Roots Jam in West Hollywood. "We were actually divorced a few days ago."
While a divorce filing had never stopped the couple from reconciling before, records obtained by TMZ.com show a judgement was rendered in Barker's August 2006 divorce filing and both are now single.
Moakler, a former Miss USA, Playboy model, and Dancing with the Stars'third season participant who recently served as a judge on The CW's Crowned: The Mother of All Pageants, wed Barker, the former drummer for Blink 182, in 2004.
Meet the Barkers, the couple's Newlyweds-like MTV reality series, lasted two seasons. Broadcast between April 2005 and March 2006, the 12-episode series followed the daily happenings of Barker, Moakler, their two children (three-year-old son Landon and one-year-old daughter Alabama), and Moakler's seven-year-old daughter Atiana (whom she had with boxer Oscar de la Hoya).
Despite the fact it looked like they were heading down the same road as ex-Newlyweds co-stars Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey when Barker filed for divorce, six months later reports surfaced that they were reconciling after the couple was spotted "in full make-out mode." Moakler eventually confirmed the rumors last March when Barker threw her a 32nd birthday bash and the two were seen kissing again.
However last July, new reports that they had separated for a second time emerged. Moakler subsequently stated she was "very disappointed" the two had separated for a second time since she considered Barker "the love of my life."
As for Barker, he's apparently decided to focus on the loves of his life.
"I have a beautiful daughter at home, a beautiful son at home," Barker told People. "That's where my head is at right now. I don't have time for anything else."
