The reason for Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker’s sudden hospitalization has been revealed as reportedly due to pancreatitis after pictures surfaced online of the rocker being taken to the hospital on Tuesday.
The 46-year-old musician and husband of reality star Kourtney Kardashian made headlines after reports surfaced that Barker was rushed to West Hills Hospital and Medical Center and later to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles with Kardashian right by his side, as The Daily Wire previously reported. At the time, it was unclear what mystery illness was afflicting the rocker.
On Wednesday, TMZ reported that multiple sources with the family have told the outlet that the reason for Barker’s hospital stay is due to his pancreas reportedly becoming inflamed following a recent procedure.
The symptoms of such medical emergency include things like vomiting, intense stomach pain, and nausea.

On Tuesday, photos showed Barker being wheeled into the hospital on a gurney while holding his tattooed fist in the air.
At the same time reports of the hospitalization surfaced, people noticed that the rockstar drummer’s last post on Twitter had a cryptic message that just read, “God save me.”
As surprising as Barker’s post was, some were quick to note that it might have just been a post on social media about the title of good friend and rapper Machine Gun Kelly’s song, titled “God Save Me,” that came out earlier this year.
Barker’s 16-year-old daughter Alabama took to her Instagram Story and asked fans to pray for her dad following news of his mystery illness.
“Please send your prayers,” Alabama wrote.
A little more than a month ago, Baker and “The Kardashians” star tied the knot at a lavish ceremony in Portofino, Italy.
In October 2021, Kourtney and Travis revealed in posts on social media that they were engaged — just months after the reality star officially confirmed in February that they were in a relationship, as previously reported. Kourtney has three kids from a prior relationship. Travis is also a father to two kids from a previous marriage.
