Travis Barker and Kourtney Kardashian’s PDA-packed romance isn’t just for the cameras.
According to Pardyalone – who hilariously parodied a Kravis kissing scene from “The Kardashians” to promote his song “Alone” with the Blink-182 drummer – the married couple are constantly making out in real life, too.
“They’re PDA as f–k. They will not stop kissing, for real. I’m like, ‘Yo, chill,’” he exclusively joked to Page Six backstage at Lollapalooza, while gushing over how cool it was to see Kardashian re-post the track via social media.
“It’s so real. It’s probably more real [than what fans see on TV],” he added. “In real life, they really are, like, sucking face all the time.”
Kardashian, 44, shares three other kids – Mason, Penelope and Reign – with ex Scott Disick, while Barker, 47, shares two children with ex Shanna Moakler – Landon and Alabama, both whom are pals with Pardyalone.
“I haven’t really had a chance to talk to Travis but congrats, bro!” the Big Lake, Minn., native said, telling us he sent Barker a text as soon as he heard the news. “If you f–king see this, congrats!”
Pardyalone has been tight with the Barkers after initially connecting with the family via social media. The singer – who started making music right before the coronavirus pandemic hit in 2020 – has been blowing up ever since “Not a Home” went viral on TikTok.
“From there, a bunch of people, like random people, just started hitting me up, and Landon and Alabama were [some] of those people,” he explained.
“I sent them my number and then like a couple days later, I get this random FaceTime and it was Travis. He’s like, ‘Yo, what up? I’m in Paris right now. Let’s link when I get back.’ I was like, ‘F–k yeah, dude.’
“So we went back and I got in the studio with him. And [‘Alone’] was the first song we ever made together.”
Pardyalone – who was previously working at Walmart and Target while attending school for graphic design – told us he’s learned a lot by just being in the studio with Barker. The two also collaborated on the song’s accompanying music video, which was released in March.
“Travis’ drive for music is so inspiring,” Pardyalone shared. “He’s working harder than so many people and I’m like, ‘Dude, like, chill. Like, you’ve done so much stuff!’ And he’s just like, ’Nah, like, I need to get it,’ and I’m like, ‘You’re right, bro.’ It’s just very inspiring.”
In addition to gearing up for his first-ever Lollapalooza gig, the “She Likes My Tattoos” crooner has also been busy touring with Mod Sun. Additionally, he’s been working on a number of musical projects, including four more songs hopefully to be released with Barker someday, and upcoming tracks with Mod Sun and Machine Gun Kelly.
“So I got a song with Mod coming out. ‘I’m the Dumb One,’ he’s on the remix of that, off the new project. And I’m trying to get Kells [MGK] on a track,” he teased, before adding, “’My Bad (Remix),’ MGK.”
“And hopefully there is a time where me and Travis can go on tour together. That would be amazing.”
Page Six also caught up with Sueco backstage at Lollapalooza, who worked with Barker on the 2021 pop-punk hit “SOS.”
“He DM’d me like a really long time ago. It was probably right around when [’Fast’] was blowing up and we had been meaning to make something for a while,” the producer-turned-singer recalled of how the collaboration came to be.
“Then I made the demo for ‘SOS.’ I sent it over and he really liked it, so we made it happen.”
Sueco also echoed what Pardyalone said about Barker’s inspiring work ethic, telling us, “He’s a machine. It’s really cool watching him do what he does.”
As for Sueco’s own latest release, it’s a song titled “Help Me,” which showcases his vulnerable side by tackling themes of pain, suffering and depression.
“Writing the song .. I was kind of just in this dark place. And I realized I can’t get out of this by myself and that’s OK; you can ask for help. That’s what friends are for. That’s what relationships,
that’s what people are for, is to help you,” he shared.
“I just wanted to make a song because I felt like I needed help. A lot of my songs, especially the more deeper ones, it just comes from – not even really me going, ‘Oh, I want other people to feel this way or whatever.’ It’s just like, ‘This is therapy for me, and if someone else can relate, then that’s f–king great.’”
Like Pardyalone, this year marked Sueco’s debut performance at the four-day music festival, which took place at Chicago’s Grant Park.
“I’ve never been to Lollapalooza. I figured the first time I would come is when I perform,” he told us ahead of his high-energy set, which included some stage diving, crowd surfing and one fan even climbing into a tree as Sueco performed “Next Ex.”
“I’m stoked. It’s going to be sick. We’re going to f–king turn up.”
