TRAVIS Barker has faced criticism for posting a happy birthday message to his daughter Alabama two weeks late as many believe he has been distracted by his relationship with Kourtney Kardashian.
The Blink-182 star’s teen daughter Alabama has shocked fans with how grown-up she looks despite only turning 16 last month.

Travis, 46, took to Instagram on Friday to share a belated happy birthday post for his daughter.
In the photo, the drummer stood with his teenager in front of a Christmas tree as both dressed in all black.
Alabama went full glam in a jet black ’80s style dress with pointed toe heels and she leaned away from her dad as he reached out.
Her long blonde hair was curled into waves and she showed off her acrylic nails and perfect makeup.
Travis gazed at his daughter as the scene was scattered with Christmas presents wrapped in black paper with red and white ribbons.
The rocker captioned his post: “Happy Birthday I love you so much @alabamaluellabarker .”

However, fans were discomforted as they remembered Alabama’s birthday was actually on December 24th, two weeks prior.
“Wasn’t her birthday the 24th of December?” one fan reminded with the skull emoji.
“Its just odd that he said happy birthday when her birthday was a month ago lmao,” another agreed.
Another asked: “wasn’t her birthday on dec 24th ??” while a fourth reasoned: “i swear i thought her birthday was last month.”
ALL GROWN UP
However, others were more shocked by how mature Alabama appeared in the photo, as many were speechless that she was only turning 16.
“16? how tf?” one wrote with a surprised emoji.
“She’s 16?? Wtf I’m 28 and i look like her daughter lol she’s beautiful,” another joked.
“Imagine looking like this at 16? I was wearing Abercrombie and still had braces,” a third recalled.
Another added: “She doesn’t look 16 ?!? but happy birthday,” while a final gushed: “Omg she’s only 16.”
Alabama has previously caused controversy in fans who believe she’s acted “too grown-up” on social media.
‘ACT YOUR AGE’
Her blonde locks were curly as she sported a full-glam makeup look.
Alabama mouthed the words to the Girls Want Girls song by Drake while pointing her acrylic nails at the camera.
Many of her fans raced to the comments section and gushed over how “pretty” she looked in the short video.
Others though were worried that the child star was dressing up and acting well above her age.
One troll ranted: “This girl needs to act her age!! She’s too f**king pretty to be stuck like this…I hate that.”
A second troll agreed: “Shorten them nails…You’re too gorgeous for all that.”
Another person claimed: “She looks like she’s in her 30s.”
Fans have also accused Alabama of “corrupting” Kourtney’s nine-year-old daughter Penelope, as the KUWTK star announced her engagement to Travis in October.
Alabama took to TikTok in November to share a clip of herself lip-synching along to a song, stating: “Dang little mama, you is such a loser.”
Penelope then popped into the frame as she mouthed along to the lyrics: “You is such a loser.”
Text onscreen read: “When a girl treats you different when it comes to guys…”
Fans rushed to the comments section to accuse the teen of “corrupting” Penelope.
One person wrote: “DON’T INFFLUENCE HER. She doesn’t need to be anything like you. It would ruin her whole reputation.”
Alongside numerous crying emojis, added: “DRAGGING HER INTO FAME. She looks so nervous.”
