It's the saga that never ends: Kourtney and Travis. But we're not here to talk about yet another PDA-filled adventure they shared on the 'gram. We're here to talk about the wild romance rumors swirling around about the Blink-182 drummer and another celebrity... Kourt's sister.

Yep, you read that right. According to Travis' ex, Shanna Moakler, her former husband is getting along just fine with his new girlfriend's family. Perhaps, um, even a little bit too much. As Moakler put it, not only did Travis and Kim once have a little fling, but that's also the reason her marriage ended.

"I divorced my ex because I saw them — I caught them having an affair," she revealed to US Weekly of the moment her relationship publicly ended back in the 2000s. In case you forgot, that was also around the same time Kimmy worked as Paris Hilton's assistant. Remember that? Travis Barker certainly does...

In fact, in his 2015 memoir, Can I Say: Living Large, Cheating Death, and Drums, Drums, Drums, the rocker had no problem sharing how he really felt about Kimmy during her time under Hilton's payroll: "I kept on secretly checking out Kim, telling Lil Chris, 'I don't care if she's the closet girl, she's… hot,'" Barker confessed. Take what you want from that.

From the juicy allegations to the even-juicier tell-all, might Moakler have been on to something all along? Well, according to Kim, the answer is actually quite simple: No. On Wednesday, May 26, the KUWTK star took to the ‘gram to set the record straight once and for all. As for what she had to say for herself?

"NO! False narrative!" Kardashian assured of the rumors. "We've been friends for years, and I'm so happy for him and Kourt." Well, there you have it. And bible, we've never been more confused. But if we've learned anything from their time on our screens, it's that all odds are off when it comes to Calabasas' finest.

Stay tuned.
