Several adult children among the 13 siblings freed in 2018 from virtual imprisonment in their abusive parents’ Southern California home found themselves a year later feeling pressured by the county’s guardian to move to an apartment in disrepair in a crime-ridden area, court documents showed. Court documents are slowly being released in Riverside County that were previously sealed in the disturbing case that attracted international attention when details emerged showing the parents shackled and starved their children for years. In a 2019 court filing, an attorney for the adult children of David and Louise Turpin wrote that three of the siblings were taken to see the apartment by an employee for the Riverside County Public Guardian's office and were “fearful to object so they indicated that the apartment was okay with the expectation that other apartments would be viewed."news.yahoo.com

Today Travis Barker welcomes Architectural Digest to Calabasas, California for a tour of the understated, modern home he shares with his growing family. It's been a busy spring for the perpetually in-demand musician - Barker recently produced Machine Gun Kelly’s latest album Mainstream Sellout (which hit #1 on the Billboard charts) and is currently in the studio working on his own label DTA Records, a joint venture with Elektra Music Group. When he decided it was time to refresh the feel of the home he’s owned for 15 years, his mother-in-law Kris Jenner suggested he reach out to Waldo Fernandez, a perennial fixture on the AD100. Barker admits that the restrained vibe he arrived at is a bit of a departure from some of his previous residences. “I’ve had homes with lots of flashy cars, murals, and bikes hanging from the ceiling. But with three children of my own, plus Kourtney’s kids, this place felt right for this moment in my life."See more of Travis' family home.Shop Travis’ home style!Simple—but still interesting—Travis’ serene Calabasas home has no shortage of punchy candles, elegant plants, and textured decor:D.S. & Durga Concrete After Lightning Candle: https://fave.co/3MqDpsu(Similar) Ponytail Palm: https://fave.co/3NiQlRh(Similar) White Lily of the Valley: https://fave.co/3wC4dPI(Similar) Lulu & Georgia Farmhouse Pottery Pantry Candlestick: https://fave.co/3PFvABp(Similar) West Elm Recycled Metal Vases: https://fave.co/3Nqkn5HWant to curate an airy space like Travis?
