Rocker Travis Barker revealed that he had a crush on Paris Hilton's best friend during his relationship with the socialite back in 2006. Who was her bestie, you ask? None other than Kim Kardashian West, of course!
"Kim was Paris' assistant. She got all of Paris' belongings together wherever we traveled. How could you not stare at Kim? Mind you, I enjoyed hanging out with Paris, but I love curvy girls. Kim was eye candy. I was no way disrespectful to Paris, but I couldn't keep my eyes off Kim!"
Awww. The father of two was smitten with the rising star!
Back in Calabasas, California, the new pals would still spend time together, and Keeks even enlisted Shanna Moakler's ex's advice after his reality show Meet the Barkers:
"We would go out to eat, just hang out. Kim was like, 'I really want to do this reality show. We're supposed to do it with Ryan Seacrest. I just think my family's interesting.' I gave her the best advice I could but I still remember the conversation like yesterday: 'I think my family is interesting and it could be something.' Well, you were absolutely right!"
Ummm, ya think?? Does this mean we have Travis to thank for 10 seasons of KUWTK??
When asked if the relationship was strictly platonic, the Can I Say author shared:
"I had a crush on her and we were flirtatious but nothing ever happened. I don't know! … She was so kind and polite, I just felt like being a perfect gentleman around her. It was a trip!"
So where do the pals stand now? Trav adds:
"When I see her, I give her a hug and wish her the best and there's no awkwardness. Because God knows, when you hook up, sh*t gets awkward!"
Ha! Ain't that the truth!
Ah, what could have been!

We've got some really good news for Blink-182 fans!
If you ever find yourself in the mood for some solid '90s nostalgia, it looks like Travis Barker and Mark Hoppus are about to bring us some new music.
The band was originally supposed to release their seventh studio album back in 2014, but after guitarist Tom DeLonge left the group to focus on Angels & Airwaves, those plans were put on hold.
But that's all about to change because in a recent interview, Travis can't help but boast about working with Alkaline Trio's Matt Skiba, saying:
This is so sad.
Travis Barker has been through quite a bit in his life and is opening up about some of the darker moments ahead of the release of his upcoming memoir Can I Say: Living Large, Cheating Death, And Drums, Drums, Drums.
In an interview that came out last week, the 39-year-old talked extensively about his drug addiction as well as the plane crash he was in.
Well the drummer isn't done sharing his feelings as he recently sat down with Chris Connelly on GMA to talk about life after the crash.
What he revealed was shocking.
Apparently the Blink-182 star was so plagued with thoughts of suicide that he offered to pay friends $1 million to kill him. He explained:
From surviving armed robberies, severe drug addiction, and the 2008 plane crash that killed four and left him with burns on over half of his body — Blink-182's Travis Barker has faced overwhelming struggle throughout his life.
In a recent interview with Billboard mag, the 39-year-old sat down to discuss his memoir Can I Say: Living Large, Cheating Death, And Drums, Drums, Drums hitting shelves October 20.
The father of two has constantly dealt with substance addiction, which led to some of his darkest days:
"My breakfast was four blunts, four Vicodin, one Valium, one Oxycodone. 'Cause that was the only way I could leave the house. I had to medicate myself before I could even think about getting in the car. It was tough."
Wow, Shanna Moakler pulled no punches in this interview!
An interview with Moakler appears in the Daily Mail on Sunday, with the ex-beauty queen calling out the X Factor UK judge for her involvement with Barker.
Right out of the gate, Moakler went all in on her ill-fated marriage to Travis:
The hot new couple were spotted getting their thrills at Universal Studios' Hollywood Horror Nights on Sunday. How cute is that??
One source shared of the twosome's night together, saying:
"Rita seemed pretty scared at the event and kept close to Travis when the monsters tried to scare her. But they were definitely holding hands, laughing and having fun."
Aww! Sounds like they're happy!
Or at least, we know Travis is! He even posted this sweet message to Instagram on Monday:
