Echosmith Drummer Apologizes for Messaging Travis Barker’s Underage Daughter

Graham Sierota, the 20-year-old drummer for pop-rock band Echosmith, has apologized for sending a series of direct messages to Travis Barker’s 13-year-old daughter Alabama. “I had invited Alabama to my parents’ big family BBQ along with many other people, and it wasn’t until she responded that I realized her age at which point I apologized to her,” Sierota says in a statement to <i>People</i>. “I’m really sorry and feel very badly about this. I didn’t realize she was a minor and assumed she was my age. I made a careless mistake and this is a big lesson for me.” On Thursday, The Blast published alleged screenshots of Sierota’s messages to Alabama, which date back to 2016, when Alabama was 10. Barker responded to the story by saying, “When I found out a 20-year-old man was trying to get in touch with my 13-year-old daughter by filling her Instagram messages with party invites and compliments I was disgusted. That’s predatory behavior and there is nothing cool, normal or OK about it at all.”
