The Blink-182 drummer was taken away on a stretcher into an ambulance to Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre with his wife Kourtney Kardashian by his side after he was seen at West Hills hospital after experiencing symptoms that doctors believed to be pancreatitis caused by the rocker’s recent colonoscopy. He currently remains under medical care in hospital.

It comes after the 46-year-old cryptically posted a message to Twitter that read: “God save me.”

Amid news of the rocker’s health scare, his 16-year-old daughter, Alabama, posted on her Instagram Story and TikTok, writing, “Please send your prayers.”

Travis Barker’s 23-year-old stepdaughter, Atiana De La Hoya, also thanked fans for their support, writing on Instagram.

“Thank you for the outpouring of love and prayers sent our way at this time,” the daughter of Barker’s ex-wife, Shanna Moakler, whom she shares with Oscar De La Hoya, wrote on Wednesday.

“It is heard, felt and appreciated Xx.”

While representatives for the pair are yet to comment on Travis’ condition, the scary ordeal comes following Kourtney’s own health battle after she contracted COVID for the second time recently.

According to a post on her lifestyle blog, Poosh, Kourt has since made a “full recovery” from her second bout of the virus.

“She wanted to share the most helpful things she has learned this time around. From the thermometer she is ‘obsessed’ with to being vocal when feeling scared,” the post began, before revealing ‘Kourt’s COVID tips.’

“I like to starve my fever like my grandma always taught me,” read one such tip from the reality star.

The pair’s recent health hurdles come just over a month after they were married in a lavish ceremony in Portofino, Italy surrounded by family and friends.
