Shanna Moakler appreciates Kourtney for being by Travis Barker’s side
While Travis Barker may be feeling “Down” right now, his ex-wife Shanna Moakler is optimistic that “Happy Days” are just around the corner.
Travis Barker, drummer for the band Blink-182, was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on June 28 with what is being called a bout of pancreatitis. Former Miss USA, Kourtney Kardashian, was at his side.
She released a statement on June 30 in which she thanked those who have shown “Thank you to everyone who has reached out with concern to my ex and father of my children,” for her ex and the father of her children. The finest medical staff, his lovely wife Kourtney, and his many caring friends and family ensure that he is in good hands.
The mother of three, the former Celebrity Big Brother contestant wished “for a speedy recovery and for the comfort of my children as I know they are very concerned and worried.” Her children are Alabama Barker, 16, Landon Barker, 18, and Atiana de La Hoya, 23.
“Travis has a beat the odds numerous times and I know with his support system he will do it again,” she continued. “I will always be there for him and my children.”
Back in 2008, Travis was engaged in an aircraft disaster that cost the lives of four individuals, including two of his close friends. It was not until 2021, when he joined Kourtney on a trip to Mexico, that he was able to fly again after suffering from third-degree burns all over his body, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and survivor’s guilt.
His medical issue comes one month after he and Kourtney tied the knot in a grandiose Italian ceremony on May 22. Mason, 12, Penelope, 9, and Reign, 7, Kourtney’s children with ex-husband Scott Disick, were present for the wedding along with other close friends and family members.
A source close to Kourtney informed E! News that Travis was sent to the hospital after experiencing “extreme pain,” but that he is now “doing better”
“It was to the point where he could barely walk,” the source claimed, adding, “Kourtney is trying to lift his spirits and hates seeing him in excruciating pain.”
