“Travis was suffering from extreme stomach pain and could barely walk,” a source tells PEOPLE of the Blink-182 drummer’s rush to the hospital accompanied by his newlywed wife. Kourtney Kardashian vowed last month to stay by Travis Barker in sickness and in health, and now the newlyweds are facing that test.
Less than 24 hours after a case of pancreatitis sent the Blink-182 drummer to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on a stretcher, a source tells PEOPLE, “Kourtney won’t leave his side.”
Kardashian, 43, was seen following close behind Barker, 46, as he entered the hospital on Tuesday. The photo of the pair was obtained by TMZ, who was first to report the news of Barker’s hospitalization. (A rep for Barker had no comment, while a rep for Kardashian did not immediately respond to a request for comment.)
“Kourtney was worried yesterday. They both were,” the source told PEOPLE. “Travis was suffering from extreme stomach pain and could barely walk.” The source added, “He is getting the best care at Cedars though,” noting that doctors are focusing on pain management and determining Barker’s condition via a battery of tests and a modified diet.
After Barker entered the hospital, his 16-year-old daughter Alabama sent a plea to her followers on social media, writing on her Instagram Story for them to “send your prayers” for her dad.
