We totally ship this new couple! Travis Barker just opened up about his new girlfriend, Rita Ora, for the first time and we are giddy over his adorable words — he REALLY likes her! He said she’s ‘stunning’ and ‘awesome!’ See what else he said.
Aww! The way Travis Barker, 39, and Rita Ora, 24, met is SO cute! The Blink-182 drummer gushed about their blooming relationship in a new interview– he explained how and where they met as well as WHO was responsible for setting them up. Find out!
“I performed there with Tyga and Kid Ink. We had just met through passing. We have a mutual friend named Willie T,” Travis explains to Us about the way he and Rita first met. “I had walked up and he was like, ‘Yo, take a picture with Rita.’ And I was like, ‘Okay.’ We just took a photo together, but obviously she’s stunning and she’s awesome.” What a picture perfect way to meet someone (get it?)
“Of course Rita Ora was like the only hot cheerleader at the whole spot, so you couldn’t help but notice her,” Travis went on. Rita wore a black and white cheerleader uniform and red lipstick at the event, as you can see from the pic above!
Travis’ baby momma and ex-wife Shanna Moakler is apparently V jealous of his new relationship. The drummer explained, “One word for that: just thirsty. Thirsty. I have no connection to my baby’s mama except that she’s the mother of my children. I don’t know where those rumors are coming from. That’s the craziest thing I’ve ever heard.”
