Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker are reportedly skipping the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards.

According to Page Six, the couple will not be attending this year’s VMAs because they want to spend time with their children or family members. They may also be working on their projects together, such as new music or an album by Travis Barker.

What we know about their decision to stay home

Here is what we know about their decision to stay home.

  • They are busy with their own lives, which include raising a young family together and working on projects like Kourtney’s new book, “My Life on the D-List.”
  • Travis Barker and Kourtney Kardashian have been seen together several times since the death of his ex-wife Brittany Cadore in 2019 (she was 14 years younger than him), but they were not attending the VMAs because they wanted to keep their relationship out of the spotlight.
  • A source close to them told Us Weekly: “Travis doesn’t want anything that draws attention into his personal life.”

The 2022 MTV Video Music Awards

Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker did not attend the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards. They were not invited to attend because they did not win an award, which is very common in today’s era of awards shows. The two were nominated alongside other artists, but they did not win any trophies at all during the show’s ceremony or its telecast on MTV.

A source told E! News that they “chose” to stay home instead of going to the event.

The star was spotted at a gym in Los Angeles on Monday, October 3rd, and arrived at LAX Airport on Tuesday, October 4th. She did not appear at any of her public events or meet-and-greets during this period (though she did attend an event for her brand).

2021 MTV Video Music Awards

Kourtney Kardashian was at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2021 with her friend, Larsa Pippen. This was the first time she attended a VMAs since her split from Scott Disick.

Kardashian is still friends with ex-husband Lamar Odom and his former girlfriend Khloe Kardashian, who participated in a panel discussion about their marriage as well as other issues surrounding family values.

This makes sense considering it was this year that rumors started to fly about Kardashian and Barker’s relationship. The first indication of their relationship came in the form of a kiss at an event in New York City. Then, they were spotted together on a date in Los Angeles. All this speculation eventually led us to believe that they were dating, but Travis denied these claims and stated that he was just friends with Kourtney.

However, as time went on and more pictures surfaced (like these), we began to wonder if they were dating or not. The truth is: We don’t know anything for sure because neither party has spoken up about it publicly yet but here’s what we do know:

Fans had begun to ship Kardashian and Barker for some time, but it wasn’t until Valentine’s Day in 2022 that official confirmation arrived from an unlikely source.

The video wasn’t from a celebrity gossip site like TMZ or Perez Hilton, but rather from a YouTube channel called “The Vlog Brothers,” which is known for its comedic videos about pop culture and current events. The filmmakers behind the channel created a spoof of Blink-182’s song “Valentine,” which featured Kourtney Kardashian as lead singer and Travis Barker on drums (although he was wearing headphones).

The clip quickly went viral online and also landed them an interview with host Jimmy Kimmel on his show on ABC TV!

Travis Barker and Kourtney Kardashian in MTV VMAs

When Travis Barker and Kourtney Kardashian went on their first date, they got to know each other over a mutual love of music. The two hit it off right away, and by the end of the night, they were fast friends. They soon began dating and were inseparable ever since.

In 2022, when it came time for the MTV VMAs an annual award show hosted by Miley Cyrus Barker wasn’t one of those people who would go out in public or spend money on big events like that because he didn’t want anything getting in his way while he was working on his new album (he was already working on this album before meeting Kardashian).

But instead of skipping out on going because there were no plans made or because he couldn’t find someone else to go with him; Travis decided not only not to attend but also to stay home instead!

Travis Barker is one of the most successful drummers in music history, having played on tracks for everyone from Blink-182 and Green Day to Fall Out Boy and Paramore. But perhaps his biggest claim to fame comes from his work with Blink-182, where he was the drummer for two decades. Barker’s career has spanned nearly three decades, which means that it’s safe to assume that he won’t be attending another MTV Video Music Awards anytime soon because he went AWOL in 2022!

The next year brought a whole host of new artists into the spotlight – including Cardi B who had just hit #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart with her debut single “Bodak Yellow” – but none were quite as shocking as Travis’ absence from the stage at The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. There were rumors that something was wrong with him; maybe it was cancer or something else serious like that.
