After Blink-182 called out Tom DeLonge for making his manager quit for him, the former band member reveals he ‘never’ planned to quit, and tells fans his relationship with the others is now officially ‘poisoned.’
Tom DeLonge, 39, claims he was just as surprised as everyone else when the remaining members of Blink-182 — Travis Barker, 39, and Mark Hoppus, 42 — released an official statement telling the world he had quit the band. For the first time since that happened, Tom is trying to tell his own story and, more or less, claims that this split was not his doing.
Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker are pretty upset with their former band mate, Tom DeLonge — but it’s not for quitting Blink-182. It’s for making his team do the quitting for him. Ouch.
Blink-182 announced on Monday, Jan. 26, that Tom DeLonge, 39, was officially done with the band. Even though he was quick to deny the claim on social media, his former band mates, Travis Barker, 39, and Mark Hoppus, 42, revealed in a brand new interview that he really did quit — he just didn’t do it himself.
Well, this is awkward. Even though Blink-182 members Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker announced on Jan. 26 that they would be replacing Tom DeLonge after he quit the band, Tom is now insisting that he never left — and that he’s still ‘not leaving!’
Travis Barker and Mark Hoppus may be ready to move on with Alkaline Trio‘s co-lead vocalist, Matt Skiba, but Tom DeLonge, 39, wants the world to know that it’s not because he quit Blink-182. Here’s Tom’s side of the story.
Oh, no! After over 20 years together, Blink-182 has lost Tom DeLonge. In a statement, remaining members Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker revealed his replacement — Matt Skiba from Alkaline Trio.
Tom DeLonge, 39, is officially done with Blink-182. Despite his sudden departure, the remaining band members, Travis Barker and Mark Hoppus, have decided to carry on — and have already chosen a replacement in the form of Alkaline Trio‘s co-lead vocalist, Matt Skiba.
