Tat Dad Trav to Get Tots?

7/13/2007 3:52 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Travis Barker says he's getting custody of his children with Shanna Moakler.

TMZ spotted the laid back tatty rocker leaving Les Deux last night, where he gleefully told our photog, "I'm getting custody of my kids right now." Travis and Shanna have two kids together, Landon Asher and Alabama Luella. Barker filed for divorce last August.

Though Barker and Moakler had a rocky separation -- with both of them taking to MySpace for some trash talkin' -- the two were all over each other when TMZ caught them together back in April. Looks like the reconciliation was brief.

A rep for Moakler had no comment.

UPDATE: TMZ spoke with lawyers from both sides in a conference call, who explained that Barker's claim was a big fat misunderstanding, and issued a joint statement saying, "The recent post on TMZ regarding Travis Barker was taken out of context. At that time, he was going to pick up his children, exercising his agreed upon custody time. Shanna and Travis currently share custody of the children.'

She's too busy screwing everyone she meets to make time for her children. If anyone were a prime candidate for rehab....

This guy is such a poser. All those tats are going to look so killer when your 60 Travis. Wanker. How a douche bag like this can even get a smokin woman like Moakler is beyond me. Oh yeah ... he's a "rock star" ...

He appeared to be the better parent when they had their show. He was the only one awake in the mornings. And everyone knows, you can't raise your kids from the bed or the couch, or the club.
I would give a chuckle for this to be true.
Then Paris could get a laugh too. I would rather go to jail for 23 days for a probation violation than to lose custody of my children. BooYah!

Your name here    

Whats he going to do teach the kids how to roll joints. Looks like he would be a great roll model for another celebrity child going to rehab at 20.

from what i hav seen travis is a good dad, atrleast a better parent than shannon. i mean even that whole situation with paris in the club and giving out her number are just such bad examples to her children.she really did sleep all day as well n the show. he was more a parent to shannon's child than she was. she's not really a bad person, but she is not very mature either
