Travis Barker was rushed to hospital on Tuesday afternoon after sending a cryptic tweet that has fans worried — although it might be related to something else entirely.
The Blink-182 drummer was transported to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on Tuesday afternoon, with new wife Kourtney Kardashian by his side. Their security team followed closely in a black Range Rover, according to Page Six.
Barker's 16-year-old daughter Alabama posted to her Instagram story shortly after the news broke. "Please send your prayers," she said.
According to TMZ, which cites multiple sources connected to the family, the drummer was hospitalised for pancreatitis, which doctors believe was triggered by a recent colonoscopy.
Travis Barker's 16-year-old daughter Alabama asked fans to "please send your prayers".
Hours earlier, Barker had tweeted "God save me" — but he was likely referencing his song with Machine Gun Kelly.
Alabama later shared an image of her and her dad's hands to Instagram, with the caption: "Thank you guys for all of the prayers and love, I appreciate you & love all of you."
Barker's step-daughter Atiana, who he raised from a young age with his ex wife, Shanna Moakler, also thanked followers for their support.
"Thank you for the outpouring of love and prayers sent out way at this time," she wrote in an Instagram story. "It is heard, felt and appreciated. Xx"
Neither Barker nor Kardashian have made a statement about his condition, but E! News reports that he was "in extreme pain" on Monday and that "both he and Kourtney were really worried".
"It was to the point where he could barely walk," the source said. However, they added that he was doing much better.
Moakler said she was hoping for "a speedy recovery and for the comfort of my children.
"Thank you to everyone who has reached out with concern to my ex and father of my children," she said this week. "I know he is in great hands and surrounded by loving support and the best medical teams available and his beautiful wife Kourtney."
She added: "Travis has a beat the odds numerous times and I know with his support system he will do it again. I will always be there for him and my children."

It comes just a month after Barker and Kardashian married in a lavish (but somewhat somewhat controversial) wedding ceremony in Italy. The lovebirds got engaged in 2021, when Travis popped the question amid hundreds of roses on California's Montecito beach. The proposal and celebrations afterwards was filmed for the family's new reality show, The Kardashians.
Their marriage saw their two families blend together. Barker has two biological children, Landon Asher Baker, 18, and Alabama Luella, 16. He also is a dad to Atiana, 23, whom he raised from a young age with Moakler. Kourtney, meanwhile, shares her children Mason, Penelope and Reign with her ex Scott Disick.
