Alabama Barker, 17, sparks 'concern' with 'extremely disturbing' pic as Kourtney Kardashian ripped for 'approving' it | The Sun
KOURTNEY Kardashian's stepdaughter Alabama Barker has concerned fans with her social media activity.
The 17-year-old posted a series of photos to Instagram yesterday, and her followers worried that Kourtney was encouraging her controversial behavior.
In the photos, Alabama posed in blue lighting, and pouted for the camera while she wore an all-black outfit and a full face of makeup.
However, the teenager's followers noted the "adult" styling and posing of the pics, and slammed Kourtney and her husband Travis Barker for their parenting skills.
One person reposted one of the photos to Reddit, along with the caption: "I am genuinely concerned about the way that Travis and Kourtney are raising Alabama…"
Another responded: "I think the point is she’s not being parented."
"She looks and behaves as if she’s 28!! Her parents are trash. They’re trash for allowing this child to behave like a damn near 30 yo. Disgusting," commented one enraged forum user.
Some critics pointed out that both dad Travis and stepmom Kourtney had interacted with Alabama's controversial Instagram content.
One wrote: "My dad woulda grounded me and taken my phone, not freaking liked the picture!"
A second theorized: "What I meant by including Kourtney is she likes the photos, hence showing her approval."

Debate also sparked about what Kourtney's parenting duties were as stepmother to the teenager.
A comment read: "Even though she is stepmom. She absolutely could and should (if she cared) offer some guidance or advice to Travis or even just a kind and friendly talk with Alabama."
Another argued: "This is on Travis and Shanna as parents, not Kourtney. She’s been stepmom for a hot minute and I highly doubt she gets much say in what Alabama does or posts…"
WHO'S IN CHARGE?
Kourtney, 43, and Travis, 47, married last year in May, after an unofficial Las Vegas ceremony in April.
The couple now share three children from Kourtney's relationship with Scott Disick, and two children – Alabama and Landon, 19 – from Travis' marriage to Shanna Moakler.
Back in November 2022, Travis revealed that Alabama and Shanna were estranged.
At the time, Shanna addressed the situation on Instagram.
In November, a fan confronted Shanna and asked why Alabama wasn't following her on Instagram.
In a surprising turn of events, Shanna actually replied to the internet sleuth.
She said: "Apparently, I'm a raging a**hole. That's the word on the street. Lots of laughs."
Yesterday, Alabama posted a photo of her mother posing in the nude in an emotional post for her 48th birthday.
Alabama gushed in her caption: "Happy birthday to this beautiful twin of mine. I love you momma <3.
