There are three things Kourtney Kardashian is committed to these days: her kids, her fiancé, and living her best life. Her “vibe”, as she calls it, is to live her life as if no one is watching and those around her should either get with it or get lost.

In the upcoming premiere episode of The Kardashians, which will air on US streaming service Hulu, Kourtney made a few things clear about her relationship with Travis Barker. One of those was exactly how she felt about the infamous direct messages between her exes Scott Disick and Younes Bendjima.

Kourtney found out about the embarrassing public exchange while she was on holiday in Italy with Travis. “I woke up to a text from Scott saying, ‘I'm so sorry. I DMed your ex-boyfriend who I can’t stand’,” she recalls.

Scott (38) then sent her a screenshot of the messages he'd sent Younes, which featured a paparazzi picture of Kourtney (42) and Travis (46) making out on a yacht, along with the words, “Yo is this chick okay? Bro like what is this. In the middle of Italy.”

Younes was having none of it and quickly shared a screengrab of the message to his Instagram story. Kourtney says Scott wanted to apologise to Travis but she replied to him saying "this is despicable".

“Then I was like, ‘That’s not really the vibe. Don’t go DMing my ex-boyfriend,’” she says.

The mom of three and her new man haven’t shied away from expressing their love in over-the-top public displays of affection. And she says those who don’t like it shouldn’t be in their lives – including Scott. “Your actions need to match up with you wanting to be a part of this and act like it,” she says.

According to her, the Kardashian family have for years excused Scott’s “bad behaviour” because he’s the father of her three kids, Mason (12), Penelope (9) and Reign (7). However, now that she’s with Travis, Scott won’t be getting away with it that easily.

“Me kissing the love of my life isn't anything bad. I don't want it to be negative. I'll continue to live my life and pretend no one is watching,” she says.

Kourtney and Travis have been friends for years and only grew close during the pandemic, but she says she’s always been attracted to the Blink-182 drummer.

She also revealed she's the one who made the first romantic move. The pair were watching movies at home when she kissed him. “He was taking a long time [to kiss me],” she says. “I was like, I don’t have time for this movie marathon. So I made the first move.”

What makes their romance work is that they started off as friends. “We used to work out together all of the time, just us doing stuff on a friend level. We could just be ourselves. We fell in love and now he’s my boyfriend,” she gushes.

The lovebirds recently “wed” in a last-minute Las Vegas ceremony after getting engaged last year. Although it wasn’t legally binding, Kourtney describes it as the best night of her life.

“It was fun. Elvis sang as I walked down the aisle. It was just a really fun, wild Vegas night that I’m sure many people have had or wish they had.”
