Travis Barker had a health scare this week that sent him to the hospital.
On Tuesday, the drummer was photographed on a gurney while entering Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles with his wife Kourtney Kardashian close behind. According to TMZ, Barker first went to West Hills hospital after experiencing some health issues that morning. It seems like those issues might have been more serious than they originally thought as the musician was then taken by ambulance to Cedars-Sinai.
While his current condition remains unknown, sources did tell TMZ that Barker was hospitalized for pancreatitis which they believe was triggered by a recent colonoscopy procedure. Symptoms of the disease include nausea, intense stomach pain, and vomiting. Fans also noticed that earlier that day Barker had tweeted “God save me,” which many took to be an ominous sign, however, others noted that it is also the name of a song by his friend Machine Gun Kelly that was released in March. Barker’s 16-year-old daughter Alabama also posted on her Instagram Stories shortly after her father was taken to the hospital, asking her followers to “please send your prayers.” and Kid Cudianother of Barker’s close friends, tweeted“Travis I love u and im prayin for u,” in response to the news.
This whole ordeal comes just one month after Barker and Kardashian tied the knot during a small, three-day event hosted in Portofino, Italy by Dolce & Gabbana. That was actually the couple’s third wedding after initially doing a “practice wedding” in April, eloping in Las Vegas after the Grammys and heading to an all-night chapel complete with Elvis Presley impersonator. In May, they legally got married at a California courthouse in preparation for their Italian ceremony.
This health scare is also not the only difficult thing the couple has had to overcome together. Over the course of their relationship, Kardashian has helped Barker conquer his fear of flying, boarding a private plane to Cabo together in August of last year. Prior to that, the musician has not flown since surviving a 2008 plane crash that killed four of the six passengers on board. As a result of the accident, Barker third-degree burns on 65 percent of his body and spent three months in the hospital, where he 26 surgeries and multiple skin grafts. But he told Men’s Health in May of last year that he was ready to try flying again, explaining, “There’s a million things that could happen to me. I could die riding my skateboard. I could get in a car accident. I could get shot. Anything could happen. I could have a brain aneurysm and die. So why should I still be afraid of airplanes?”
