On June 28, Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker made headlines after being hospitalized for pancreatitis, per E! News. As TMZ previously reported, the “All The Small Things” hitmaker was photographed being taken in an ambulance to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. His wife Kourtney Kardashian was with him at the time of the event.
As noted by the same outlet, Travis was last seen in public on June 22, when he was caught by paparazzi exiting a recording studio. The same morning Travis was hospitalized, he tweeted, “God bless me.” That being said, the context of the tweet may not need to be tied to his health as Machine Gun Kelly, who frequently works with Travis, tweeted a recent published song with the same title. Though Travis and Kardashian have not come forward publicly to discuss the matter, many celebrities and fans have chosen to share their support on social media. “Sending @travisbarker good energy and prayers,” singer Bebe Rexha tweeted. “Pray for @travisbarker,” shared Iann Dior. “I hope Travis Barker makes it through the man. I don’t need to lose another legendary drummer this year,” one fan wrote.
Barker is the father of three children – son Landon Barker and daughter Alabama Barker and stepdaughter Atiana De La Hoya. In a recent social media post, Alabama gave fans the update they’ve been waiting for.

Accompanying the picture, Alabama wrote, “Thank you guys for all the prayers and love, I appreciate and love you all.” Similarly, Travis’ stepdaughter Atiana De La Hoya shared her own IG story, writing (via People) , “Thank you for the outpouring of love and prayers sent to us at this time. It is heard, felt and appreciated.”
A source close to Travis’ wife, Kourtney Kardashian, told E! News of how the couple reacted to the health crisis. “He was in extreme pain yesterday and he and Kourtney were both very worried,” they said, adding, “It got to the point where he could barely walk.” After a night in the hospital, things are looking better because Travis is said to be feel a lot better. “Kourtney is trying to lift his spirits and hates seeing him in excruciating pain,” the insider continued. Another source told People Kourtney “will not leave his side,” noting that he previously “suffered from extreme stomach pains and could barely walk.”
