Rita is said to have been dating the former Blink 182 drummer after meeting him at the Power 106 All-Star basketball game two weeks ago, which his representative has since confirmed to TMZ.
He’s now spoken about the ‘Hot Right Now’ singer, revealing that they might even be sporting matching Halloween costumes this year, and telling E! News that he’s learning that they had more in common than he initially anticipated.
Travis explains : “We actually share a lot of the same tastes in music.
“Little did I know that she likes punk rock a lot. I love that. I was raised on it.”
Meanwhile, a source tells Us Weekly magazine that they’ve been inseparable ever since meeting in LA last month, explaining: “Rita sought him out and gave him her info. They have been together every day since.
“He’s really into her. He likes interesting women and she’s beautiful.”
Back in July, Rita split up with Ricky Hil, the son of fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger, who she had been dating for around one year.
Travis, meanwhile, split from his second wife, Shanna Moakler, in 2009, after a turbulent few years together.
The couple first announced they were divorcing, after two years of marriage, in 2006, but ultimately tried to rekindle their romance on several occasions.
Together they have two children, and appeared in the MTV reality series, ‘Meet The Barkers’.
