Nick and Jessica are no longer the only reality-TV newlyweds to end up in the marriage junkyard.

Tattooed drummer Travis Barker of punk band Blink-182 filed for divorce Tuesday from his beauty queen-turned-actress wife Shanna Moakler, according to Superior Court documents.

The unlikely pair, who married on Oct. 30, 2004, documented their lavish wedding and life on the MTV reality show “Meet the Barkers.”

Barker is seeking joint custody of the couple’s two kids: 2-year-old Landon Barker and 8-month-old Alabama Barker.

Moakler also has a daughter, 7-year-old Atiana, whose father is boxer Oscar De La Hoya.

“My only concern right now is for the welfare and best interests of my children,” Moakler, a former Miss USA, said in a statement issued by her publicist.

Messages left for Barker’s publicist, Dvora Vener Englefield, were not immediately returned.

Singers Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey, who costarred in MTV’s “Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica,” divorced in late June after three years of marriage.
