Travis Barker and Kourtney Kardashian threw an over-the-top party for Barker’s daughter Alabama’s 18th birthday last week, sparking backlash from some fans over the inappropriate nature of the event and gifts.

Lavish Party at Family Home

The birthday bash, estimated to have cost over $100,000, took place on December 24th at Barker and Kardashian’s family home. Over 100 guests attended, including Alabama’s brother Landon and stepsisters Atiana and Penelope. [1]

Kardashian and Barker gifted Alabama a diamond-encrusted necklace worth $125,000. The extravagance of the gift left some questioning if the couple were flaunting their wealth. [4]

Backlash Over Inappropriate Party

Many fans criticized Barker over Alabama’s revealing outfit and the presence of alcohol at the 18th celebration. [5] Some argued Barker failed as a parent by allowing his teenage daughter to dress so provocatively. [6]

“Sorry but that dress is not appropriate for an 18yr old?! She’s a child!” one fan wrote on social media.

This backlash intensified when Alabama posted images seemingly showing she had lip fillers for her birthday. [7]

With lip fillers costing several hundred dollars, some fans felt Alabama was too young for the procedure and slammed Travis over the decision. [8]

Barker and Ex-Wife Release Tributes

Despite the criticism, Barker shared a heartfelt tribute to Alabama on Instagram for her milestone birthday:

“You are the most precious gift this world ever gave me…I love you so much Alabama baby, happy birthday,” he wrote. [9]

Alabama’s mother, Shanna Moakler, Barker’s ex-wife, also posted a loving message to her daughter. The former couple have had a contentious relationship but came together to celebrate their daughter. [10]

“I love you my sweet, beautiful, smart, fierce, funny ladybugs,” wrote Moakler.

What Comes Next

While Alabama revels in reaching adulthood, her father will face ongoing criticism over his parenting choices as she navigates relationships and her career at just 18 years old. Alabama aspires to model professionally after being inspired by her aunt, Kourtney Kardashian. [11]

As she carves out her own path, Alabama will have to balance adult decisions about relationships [12] and cosmetic procedures [13] while handling any ongoing criticism. Her father, and increasingly her stepmother Kourtney, will face judgment over how much independence and responsibility Alabama should have at her young age.

While Alabama enjoyed her glittering birthday, the extravagant celebration has proved controversial and sparked debate. Her path to adulthood will be far from smooth but undoubtedly high-profile as a member of the famous extended Kardashian family.
