In light of Rita and Travis' recent romance, Travis' ex, former Miss America, Shanna Moakler, has spoken out in an interview with the Mail On Sunday, wishing Rita good luck in her relationship with him.

She claimed: ‘Our marriage was plagued by his addictions to pills and other women.

‘He constantly cheated on me. Living with him was like being on a rollercoaster – he’s a Jekyll and Hyde character. I wish Rita good luck – she’ll need it.’

She added: 'Rita’s young. She’s a girl who likes to take risks but I wonder if she truly understands what she is taking on with Travis.

'I am in a good place now and I’ve moved on with my life. I genuinely wish Rita well if she’s in love with Travis. Frankly, she’s welcome to him.'

So Rita Ora DOES have a Blink 182 boyfriend! It has been confirmed that the X Factor judge is dating Travis Barker from the band.

Earlier this week, the pair were linked after Travis shared a pic of the pair together and captioned the photo with "Me and the beautiful Rita Ora" - she then regrammed it with - wait for it - two fire emojis. So obviously fans assumed they were a thing (one does not use that emoji lightly it seems).

A rep for the Blink 182 star then spoke to TMZ and confirmed that the pair were dating, and Travis has been speaking to E! News about their relationship.

"We actually share a lot of the same tastes in music," he revealed. "Little did I know that she likes punk rock a lot. I love that. I was raised on it."

He also hinted that the pair might don matching couples Halloween costumes when the 31 October rolls around. We cannot wait for THAT moment to debut on Instagram.

Rita Ora, 24, has moved on from ex-boyfriend Ricky Hilfiger and has now been spotted on several dates with a new man, Travis Barker, 39, from pop-punk band Blink 182. You remember, sings “All the, small things…”

Turns out Rita might have been a fan too, as at a basketball match on September 20 in LA, she “sought him and gave him her info. They’ve been together every day since, ” according to US Weekly.

Travis is also said to be pretty into Rita, after spending time over the last week with the singer. The source added: “He likes interesting women and she’s beautiful.”

Rita’s definitely keeping her options open though, especially after she was spotted having dinner with Zayn Malik just a few days before meeting Travis. The pair had dinner together at Koi on September 10, though this was then claimed to be a meeting due to their shared management.

Rita has also previously hinted that she was interested in Zayn, but it wouldn’t be professional for them to date. She said: “Zayn, he’s gorgeous, but, I just…That can’t happen. We’re on the same management team, too close to that. But no, he’s great.”

It looks like she’s definitely more into punk than pop, too.
