Travis Barker rushed to hospital, daughter asks fans to ‘send prayers’: report – National

UPDATE: Reports have emerged that Travis Barker is suffering from pancreatitis that doctors believe may have been triggered by a recent colonoscopy. The exact date the drummer underwent the procedure is unknown.

Multiple sources connected to the family have corroborated the initial report, saying Barker complained of cramps prior to his hospital admission.

Pancreatitis is an inflammation of the pancreas that can cause abdominal pain, nausea, fever, and weight loss.

According to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, pancreatitis can be caused by “gallstones, heavy alcohol use, medicines, and genetic disorders of the pancreas.”

Surgery is sometimes needed to treat pancreatitis but less severe cases can be treated with antibiotics in a matter of days.

ORIGINAL STORY: Travis Barker has reportedly been hospitalized for an undisclosed medical issue.

The 46-year-old Blink-182 drummer and husband of Kourtney Kardashian was photographed being rushed to Cedar-Sinai Medical Center on Tuesday evening after he first checked into West Hills Hospital and Medical Center that morning. (Celebrity news site TMZ was the first to report the news.)

In a series of photos, Barker was seen laid out on a stretcher with Kardashian, 43, following close behind.

On Tuesday morning, Barker tweeted “God save me,” which could possibly have been a reference to his health.

Fans were quick to point out that Barker might have been alluding to the song God Save Me, a track he produced for friend and collaborator Machine Gun Kelly.

Barker’s daughter, Alabama, 16, shared a message on her Instagram story shortly after her father was reportedly taken to the hospital, asking for her followers to “Please send your prayers.”

The story is no longer visible on her account.
