Blink-182’s Travis Barker May Sue Website Over Nude Pics
Travis Barker recently made headlines after tweeting about a traffic stop where he felt the officer “crossed the line” — now his rights are being violated in an entirely different manor. The website MediaTakeOut.com posted nude pics of an “unnamed musician” that they received from a female admirer. The anonymity was canceled out by the instantly recognizable tattoos that were also visible in the pic and it didn’t take long for word to get out that Barker was the musician in question.
TMZ reports that Barker’s attorney has served the website with a cease and desist letter in hopes that they won’t have to take further legal action to remove the photos. A source close to the Blink drummer says that the photos are over 5-years old and were “private and never intended for public viewing or to be seen by anyone else.”
Blink-182 released ‘Neighborhoods’ — their first new album in nearly eight years — last September and are currently plotting overseas tour dates for this summer. They will also perform at this year’s Bamboozle Festival in Asbury Park, New Jersey on May 19th.
