Oscar De La Hoya Responds To Claims Travis Barker 'Raised' Daughter Atiana, Sets The Record Straight About His Relationship With The Rocker
Oscar De La Hoya has addressed the claims that Travis Barker raised his daughter Atiana De La Hoya.
The professional boxer, 48 — who was the first husband of Barker's ex-wife Shanna Moakler, who he shares the 22-year-old model with— did an Instagram Q & A on Wednesday, December 1, allowing his followers to ask him anything they wanted to know.
One fan posed a question about his daughter's former step-father asking, "How do you feel about Travis claiming he raised your daughter?”
“I have nothing but respect for my man @travisbarker,” the boxer replied about the Blink 182 musician, who married the former pageant queen when Atiana was five years old. Barker has never claimed himself that he raised the boxing promoter's child.
Although Barker and Moakler — who share son Landon, 18, and daughter Alabama, 15 — split in 2008, Atiana has remained close with the drummer and her siblings. She is often seen spending time with the family along with Baker's fiancée Kourtney Kardashian.

De La Hoya may be cool with the "All The Small Things" drummer, but their ex-wife is not. As OK! previously reported, after Barker and the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star dressed up as True Romance characters Clarence and Alabama, Moakler expressed her thoughts on the costumes.
After Kardashian, 42, took to Instagram to upload pictures of the two dressed as the characters from the 1993 film — one follower commented “This is weird seeing this was probably his thing with his ex hence his kid being named Alabama."
Moakler then responded to the comment as she added "It's like an episode of Punk'd." The Meet The Barkers star also shared a photo to her Instagram Story that she captioned True Romance with the movie's signature song, "You're So Cool'' playing in the background to which a fan replied “[Barker's] Ex-wife literally walked down the aisle to Hans Zimmer You’re So Cool from the movie soundtrack. Does Kourtney not know this? OY.”
“What was weird is that they were posting about a movie [True Romance] that Travis and I basically bonded over. I called him Clarence in the movie. We named our daughter after the character Alabama in the movie,” Moakler told Us Weekly in May after Barker bonded over the movie with the Poosh founder as well. “I walked down the aisle to ‘You’re So Cool’ from True Romance. Our first dance at our wedding was to the love song from True Romance.”
