Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker was rushed to the hospital on Tuesday for an undisclosed health issue.
Barker, 46, was photographed outside Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California, as Emergency Medical Technicians and hospital employees appeared to be transporting the musician from an ambulance into the hospital. Barker’s wife — Kourtney Kardashian, 43 — followed behind the stretcher wearing all black, with the hood of her sweatshirt pulled up over her head.
The musician could be seen in photos holding up his right arm, making a fist, with his skull tattoo.
TMZ reported that Barker and Kardashian had gone to West Hills hospital earlier Tuesday morning for a health issue, and doctors there apparently believed the situation to be serious enough that it warranted Barker making a trip to Cedars Sinai — via ambulance, no less.
According to a report from Page Six, both the ambulance carrying Barker and the black Range Rover transporting the power couple’s security team accidentally pulled into the wrong entrance at first and had to be redirected by hospital staff.
Barker’s latest tweet, posted just hours before he was taken to the hospital, was a cryptic three-word missive: “God save me.”
God save me

And although “God Save Me” is the title of a song by the drummer’s good friend and fellow artist Machine Gun Kelly, fans looked at it in a different light once the news broke that he had been taken to the hospital.
“Dang. Hope Travis is aight,” comedian Marcus Monroe tweeted in response.
Shortly after Barker was taken to the hospital, his 16-year-old daughter Alabama shared a brief message with her followers on Instagram: “Please send your prayers.”
Barker’s health emergency comes just one month after he and Kardashian tied the knot during a three-day celebration in Portofino, Italy. It also comes just a week after Kardashian revealed that she had just contracted and recovered from a second bout with COVID.
Kardashian made the most of her experience, sharing a series of tips and advice — about dealing with both the symptoms and the stress of having COVID — to her fans on her lifestyle blog. She offered recommendations on everything from her favorite touch-free thermometer to her grandmother’s advice on how to manage a fever.
