Shanna Moakler auctions off engagement ring from Travis Barker as he weds Kourtney Kardashian

Travis Barker’s ex wife Shanna Moakler is auctioning off her old engagement ring, fourteen years after the couple divorced.

The Blink 182 drummer, 46, and model Shanna, 47, were married between 2004 and 2008 and share two children together – Landon, 18, and Alabama, 16.

Travis has since moved on with Kourtney Kardashian, with the couplerecently tying the knot in an extravagant wedding in Italy,

Opening up on her decision to sell off her ring, Shanna said: “I think it is a beautiful piece and truly was my dream ring.

“However, that chapter of my life is over and even though wearing it at one time brought me great joy, I hope it will find a new home and continue to bring someone as much happiness as it once did to me. It’s truly an iconic ring!”

Although the auction comes just a week after her ex Travis and Kourtney married, she insisted selling the ring has nothing to do with her ex’s new relationship.

Speaking to US Weekly, she said: “I’m sure people would assume that [it’s related to the wedding], but I simply wanted to find a proper seller and is the most professional and I know will give this piece the attention it deserves.

Following their lavish nuptials on Sunday, May 22, Shanna added that she has nothing but well wishes for the newlyweds: “I wish the happy couple a lovely marriage. I will continue to only want the best for my children. It was a beautiful gesture to include my children in such a gorgeous affair.”

The ring features a diamond encrusted band surrounding a large, solitaire stone, with bidding on the ring starting at $5,1000 (£40,382) with Travis’s ex saying the ring was originally worth around $160,000 (£126,000).

Kourtney and Travis celebrated their love with three different wedding ceremonies – they visited a chapel in Las Vegas after the Grammy Awards in April, then had a low-key courthouse wedding in California, and finally the lavish event in Positano on the Amalfi Coast.

Following their third wedding ceremony, Travis and Kourtney headed to Milan for their honeymoon, stepping out hand-in-hand as they took in the sights of the city on Wednesday.

They enjoyed a visit to the Piazza Duomo and were accompanied by Travis and Shanna’s child Alabama, as well as stepdaughter Atiana De La Hoya.

At the wedding, Kourtney skipped the traditional wedding gown, instead choosing to wear a corseted white minidress with a cathedral length veil. She later changed into a black minidress for the reception.

It is believed the couple then spent their wedding night on the £50 million Regina d'Italia yacht, owned by D&G co-founder Stefano Gabbana, which was anchored just offshore.
