Landon Barker Shares Vulnerable Update On His Mental Health

Landon Barker, the son of Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker, has found success in life at a young age. The 18-year-old social media influencer followed in his sister Alabama's footsteps and co-designed a clothing collection, per E! News. Landon partnered with boohooMAN to design clothes that are inspired by his everyday look and style. The drummer's son also found love with one of the biggest TikTok stars today, Charli D'Amelio.

The musician and Charli sparked romance rumors when they were spotted at a concert together, per People, and furthered those rumors when they appeared to get tattoos together. They were also seen leaving a party for her sister Dixie D'Amelio's debut album together.

"It's very low-key," a source told Us Weekly in June. "They're having fun hanging out and getting to know each other." The insider said that they've been "supporting" each other's life successes, as Charli supported the launch of Landon's clothing collection and Landon supported Charli's older sister Dixie's music. But with all his success and the sudden spotlight on his new relationship, Landon took to social media to share a personal update on his life.

Landon Barker opens up about derealization and OCD

Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker was rushed to the hospital in early July. The musician, who is married to Kourtney Kardashian, posted an update about the health scare on Twitter. "I had a very small polyp removed right in a very sensitive area," the drummer stated. "This resulted in severe life-threatening pancreatitis." Following Travis' health update, his son has recently opened up about his own health on Instagram — specifically his mental health.

"My derealization has been really bad and I just wanna come on here and tell everyone your [sic] not alone and we are all imperfect in our own ways," Landon told his Instagram followers on his Story (via Page Six). "I love you guys. #mentalhealthawareness." The 18-year-old TikTok star also shared slideshow graphics about derealization and OCD, or obsessive compulsive disorder, informing his followers what he sometimes goes through. Per WebMD, derealization is "a mental state where you feel detached from your surroundings."

Landon isn't the only young celebrity who struggles with mental health. In mid-July, singer and songwriter Shawn Mendes had to cancel the rest of his tour due to mental health issues. "It has become more clear that I need to take the time I've never taken personally, to ground myself and come back stronger," he said in a statement posted to Instagram.
