Travis Barker has spoken out after a serious health crisis. The Blink-182 drummer was hospitalized on June 28, just days after he was spotted leaving a Los Angeles studio, according to TMZ. According to the outlet, Barker was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in an ambulance, with his wife Kourtney Kardashian following close behind. It was later revealed that Barker was suffering from pancreatitis, believed to have been caused by a recent colonoscopy.
After Barker’s hospitalization, his daughter, Alabama Barker, shared a message on social media urging fans to pray for her father. “Please send your prayers,” she wrote on her Instagram story (via E! News). Some fans also believe Barker tweeted about his illness himself, sharing a cryptic message the day he was treated. “God bless me,” Barker wrote just hours before he was rushed to the hospital. However, Barker and Kardashian have now broken their silence and provided an update on the rocker’s condition.
