Travis Barker: “MTV doesn’t break up relationships”…

Travis Barker says that his wife’s unbridled ambition led to the breakup of their marriage.

The drummer of the band Blink 182 says that Shanna Moakler — the former Miss USA who appeared with him in an MTV reality show — is to blame, not the show.

“[MTV] doesn’t break up relationships,” Barker told Spin magazine. “What breaks up a relationship is when people are concerned with being some crazy celebrity. And my wife was.”

Meanwhile, Barker’s bandmate, Mark Hoppus, blames another member of Blink 182 for the demise of the popular band. Hoppus told the mag that Tom DeLonge didn’t want to travel — and insisted on recording all the music in his hometown of San Diego.

When the mag asked Hoppus if he had a message for DeLonge, he replied: “Your selfish nature is destroying everything that the three of us, our crew, and everyone else worked so hard to do. Name anyone else in the world who gets to travel, gets paid ridiculous amounts of money, brings their family anywhere, and then has two months off just to chill. And that’s not enough for you?”

THIS SUCKS! Blink 182 was my favorite. I wish they could work out their differences and be together again. :-(

blink-182 was the one band that wasn’t like any other band. every word was my personality right there in musical form. they could’ve been the best band in the world. they had the talent and the time but 3 seperate 3rds don’t match up to that one united collected awesome they once were!
