KOURTNEY AND TRAVIS OPEN UP ABOUT THE DRUMMER'S SCARY HEALTH DIAGNOSIS
By DM
Travis Barker was hospitalized on June 28, 2022, for pain and complications from pancreatitis. Barker's wife Kourtney Kardashian — whom he wed in Italy mere days before his health scare — was by his side at all times, and now, the couple has broken their silence and provided an update on the Blink-182 drummer's condition.
On July 2, Barker revealed that during an endoscopy, he "had a very small polyp removed right in a very sensitive area, usually handled by specialists, which unfortunately damaged a critical pancreatic drainage tube," leading to "excruciating pain." He added that he is still receiving treatment for pancreatitis and is doing better.
Kardashian also thanked fans and the medical team at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where Barker is being treated. However, she also slammed paparazzi for profiting off her husband's situation: "To the paparazzi who sold pictures of me 'out and about' while my husband was in the hospital [...[ these photos were actually taken weeks ago."
