Barker: 'I Still Love Shanna'

LATEST: BLINK 182 drummer TRAVIS BARKER insists he is still in love with estranged wife SHANNA MOAKLER, despite posting a scathing message about her on the internet. The 30-year-old posted the barbed attack on his MySpace page on Monday (14AUG06), and accused Moakler of partying and neglecting their children. Barker tells American publication People, "I was hearing things in the press that Shanna was saying about me and it got to the point where it got so foul and so false that I wanted my fans to hear from me directly." Although he only posted the message a few days ago, he claims he no longer feels any animosity towards his estranged wife: "I'm not in the angry phase at all because I'm still absolutely in love with Shan." The rocker claims the pair have been hit by the "MTV curse", which he claims strikes couples who have filmed reality shows for the network, including JESSICA SIMPSON and NICK LACHEY, and CARMEN ELECTRA and DAVE NAVARRO. He explains, "I think putting your relationship out there for people to interpret and have their own opinion about, I think it's crazy. "Ours was different 'cause it showed a young couple who could still get down and reach their goals and dreams. But I still feel like it puts a lot of stress on the relationship." Moakler has hit back at Barker for going public with their personal affairs saying, "(His) airing of our dirty laundry in the media is not conducive to the well-being of my children, and I want no part of it."

Come on people. I know the Barkers will never see this as Jess & Nick, Dave & Carmen, but I wish these people would pull out some "balls" and forget the stupidity and the gossip from us unfamous people and try and stay together. Remember what made you fall in love and get married in the first place. Trust- youth will fade, money if not managed right will leave you broke. These people are blessed, why fight and argue. I bet if they didn't have all the fame and fortune, they'd act like everyday people and try to stay together. I think it's sad that people would let money and stardom break them up. Travis and Shanna, I thought were the most mature couple out of all of them. They loved each other, they have children together, that alone shold make them try to work oit out. how old is that baby 8-9 months. Come on people. Find other jobs, stay off that cursed MTV, maybe they should switch to VH-1, celebs there seem to have better success. I think it's very sad, as is Carmen & Dave. I thought they would stay together. Nick & Jess, I'm still holding out for them to get back together one day. Keep watching . Love Ya, Nic-
