Fans have discovered old transcripts of Travis Barker that detail his life with ex-wife Shanna Moakler and his decision to divorce.
The transcript shows a MySpace post from Barker that dates back to 2006, the same year he filed for divorce from Moakler. A fan on Reddit shared images of the post on the Kardashian-focused subreddit, r/KUTWK.
Barker begins the post by saying he’s never had his own blog or anything like it, preferring instead to express himself through his music. However, he felt it was important to “set the record straight” about his divorce.

He says he wakes up at 5:30 a.m. and takes care of their two babies soon after. Then at 7 a.m., his stepdaughter, Atiana, wakes up and he cooks her breakfast before Moakler’s assistant takes her to school.
He notes throughout the post that Moakler usually sleeps through this morning routine.
Later that morning the nanny arrives, he takes his son for a walk and drives to work while Moakler sleeps.
He then says that Moakler finally wakes up around 2 p.m. and immediately goes to get his nails done with his assistant. Barker says he’s been in the studio from 2 to 5, leaving only their nanny to care for their two youngest children.
When he returns at 6 p.m., he learns that Moakler is nowhere to be found when he and the children are having dinner.
“Shanna is MIA,” Barker said in all caps. “Note to self…she’s not at work.” She’s worked 6 times in the past 4 years, around 8pm I usually get a text saying she’s going out to dinner.
He then left to perform at a show, with his band. The nanny is still there when he comes home around 1 a.m., while Moakler is still not home. A few hours later, she finally comes home, but it’s not a happy occasion like it should be.
“Around 3:30 a.m. my wife walks in, drunk, swearing loudly because she hates my friends, hates my bands, hates my job, hates me,” Barker said. “I go to bed and repeat this every day, my breaking point.”
Travis Barker also accuses Shanna Moakler of cheating on him.
Barker explains that Moakler hadn’t told her some things she should have had. He said he heard from various sources that she was performing on Dancing With The Stars, posting family photos on MySpace and cheating on him, among other issues.
He concludes the post with an all-caps rant about how he tried to work things out with her, but to no avail.
