Travis Barker’s relationship with Kourtney Kardashian is always on the news. The power couple are head over heels over each other. However, recently Travis caught flak from fans for gifting his future mother-in-law “expensive” junk.
On Saturday, Kris took to her Instagram Story to gush about the gift Kourtney’s fiancé sent over. She showed off a large case they all came in. The 66-year-old popped open the two metal clasps to unveil the contents. It had pieces from Travis’ new collection with the home accessory company Buster + Punch.
The Kardashian matriarch thanked her soon-to-be son-in-law: “Wow, Travis, this is the most amazing tour travel road case I have ever seen.” She soon focused in on the most expensive piece in the kit, a $590 lamp. Kris finished off giving a peek of the collection by sharing a picture of all the items displayed on nicely top of the case.
Aside from the almost-$600 lamp, other items made as part of the partnership includes a $290 skull bowl, $245 skull doorstop, a $95 skull drum key, and a $195 skull candle holder. However, fans on Reddit called out the rocker for sending her a “giant trunk of junk.”
One fan wrote referencing the higher price point wrote, “I’m not sure anyone who could afford to buy it would. It’s tacky.” Another just wondered, “Why a lamp lmao.” Clearly, fans were not having any of it. A third Redditor completely slammed the collection by writing,
I dont mind the lamp minus the pull. The bowl does not look like a skull at all. The candle holders you can find at winners or tj maxx during halloween. Shitty necklace- shout out to the use who said this originally. And im still wondering in what situation a skull pull knob would really work, and if id really wanna look at a skull drawer pull every day… i give this collection a 3 out of 10. Uninspired and unoriginal.
Others just called all of it “more useless junk,” and one joked that on first glance they “assumed it was an exorcism kit.” The gift from Travis comes just after Kris was accused by fans of shading her oldest daughter in a new interview as she alluded that she doesn’t have the drive of the rest of her kids.
