Blink-182’s Travis Barker Reportedly Rushed to Hospital With Pancreatitis
UPDATE (1:20 PM ET, June 28, 2022): TMZ now reports that doctors believe Barker was hospitalized with pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas) which was possibly triggered by a recent colonoscopy.
Photos in the TMZ report show both Barker and wife Kourtney Kardashian dressed in all black as medics wheel the drummer, who is laid out on a stretcher, into an ambulance. It has been alleged that Barker, 46, visited the West Hills hospital on the morning on June 28 for a certain health issue, after which he was transported to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center by ambulance.
No other information has been made available at this time and Barker's status remains unknown.
The drummer, who has been active outside of Blink-182 and playing with Machine Gun Kelly and Avril Lavigne, has a 16-year-old daughter (Alabama Barker) with former wife Shanna Moakler and she shared an Instagram story that said, "Please send your prayers," shortly after news of the hospitalization broke.
Earlier on June 28, Barker tweeted, "God save me," which is the title of a song off Mainstream Sellout, the newest album from Machine Gun Kelly. It is not known if the tweet was sent in connection with the health issue he's experiencing or if the timing was coincidental and unrelated.
This story will be updated as more news surfaces.
Loudwire extends well wishes to Barker, his family and those by his side during this time.
