On June 22nd, 2024, Alabama Barker, the daughter of Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker and Shanna Moakler, ignited a social media firestorm with an Instagram story that left fans furious. The story showed her tossing cash into a river or the ocean, a move that many found incredibly tone-deaf, especially given her recent actions.

Just a few months ago, Alabama opened a GoFundMe page asking for donations to help cover her aunt’s cancer treatment. This made her cash-throwing stunt even more infuriating for her followers. One fan summed up the sentiment perfectly: “Didn’t she JUST ask people to donate for her aunt’s cancer treatment??” Another added, “She is so stupid and detached from reality.”

Alabama’s story has caused a major stir.

The backlash was swift and harsh. People couldn’t believe the audacity of a young celebrity flaunting her wealth in such a reckless manner. “Does she expect people to be like ‘OMG Alabama you are so cool wasting money and polluting the ocean at the same time!!!!’?” one user sarcastically asked. Others pointed out the current economic hardships many are facing: “There’s a housing and cost of living crisis in my country where people are working full time, still ending up homeless and living paycheck to paycheck, and this overgrown cabbage patch kid thinks daddy’s money is worth nothing.”

Adding fuel to the fire, some fans remembered her previous carelessness with expensive items. “Kinda over celebrities asking to donate to their friends/families’ GoFundMe’s when you literally have Birkin bags 5x over the GoFundMe goal??? The same girl who left her over 10k Cartier watch in a burger joint bathroom so carelessly lol???? Like she’s literally your family and you’re rich just pay for it maybe idk?”

To top it all off, some fans even questioned the authenticity of the video, suspecting it might have been photoshopped. “This honestly looks photoshopped,” one skeptical follower noted.

Alabama’s personal life has also been under the spotlight. Back in October 2023, it was stated that she was dating rapper Lil Darius after the duo appeared together in a romantic video. Before Lil Darius, she was rumored to be dating rapper Girlzluhdev. Meanwhile, her dad Travis has shared a couple of dating rules that he has for his daughter.

As Alabama continues to court controversy, it’s clear that her attempts to stay relevant often backfire, leaving fans more frustrated than impressed. The latest incident has only added to the growing list of criticisms she faces regularly. From flaunting wealth to asking for public donations, her actions seem to reflect a disconnect from the struggles of ordinary people.

Bama has a pretty interesting family tree. It’s a mix of biological siblings, half-siblings, and step-siblings.

First up is her biological brother, Landon Asher Barker, 20. Landon is following in their dad’s footsteps, diving into the music scene and racking up followers on social media. Alabama and Landon share a tight bond and are often seen together, whether it’s jamming out or just goofing around.

Then there’s Atiana De La Hoya, born on March 29, 1999. She’s Alabama’s half-sister from their mom Shanna’s previous relationship with boxing legend Oscar De La Hoya.

The family expanded even more when Travis married Kourtney Kardashian in May 2022. This marriage brought in one half-brother, Rocky Thirteen, born November 2023, and three step-siblings from Kourtney’s previous relationship with Scott Disick: Mason, Penelope, and Reign.
