Just one month after Travis Barker and Kourtney Kardashian’s lavish Italian wedding, tragedy has struck.
On Tuesday evening, an ambulance rushed Travis to the hospital.
Kourtney was following behind her husband, so that she could be by his side as he receives emergency care.
Travis’ daughter is asking the public for prayers. This sounds so grim.
TMZ reports that Travis Barker and Kourtney Kardashian arrived at West Hills hospital on Tuesday morning.
While we do not yet know what health issue Travis was experiencing, it was clearly serious.
Travis tweeted “God save me” around that time, and it was likely not a reference to Machine Gun Kelly lyrics.
Travis was not the only one who felt that this was serious.
The care providers at West Hills felt that this was an urgent situation requiring more care than they could provide.
It was then that an ambulance transported Travis to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
Kourtney traveled closely behind the ambulance, reportedly following in her own vehicle.
Though Travis had a clotting issue years ago, we do not know the health crisis that Travis is now facing.
However, it is sounding dire.
Alabama Barker, Travis’ 16-year-old daughter, took to her Instagram Story.
There, she made one simple request of her fans and followers.
Alabama asked people to please offer their prayers — clearly, for her father’s health and recovery.
Travis was raised Catholic, and has spoken about how important that was to him.
Kourtney and her family are devout Christians as well.
But one imagines that they would welcome any prayers, good vibes, or emotional support at this time.
Alabama again asked for fans to “say a prayer” while addressing her TikTok followers.
She shared a glimpse of her holding hands with her dad in the hospital, showing that she was able to join him.
While that does highlight the severity of Travis’ illness, we can also see that he is at least able to use his phone.
Curiously, it appears that Travis is holding a pillow in this moment.
Sometimes, people hug pillows for pain or comfort.
However, it is also possible that he was using the pillow to obscure his body so that Alabama could share this.
Beyond Travis’ IV, it’s difficult to glean more from the photo.
Naturally, wild conspiracies immediately began to circulate.
Some of the internet’s most toxic trolls, like anti-vaxxers, decided to use the crisis to push their favorite agendas.
Then again, others used Twitter to find moments of levity.
Several tweets predicted that Travis’ medical crisis will remain a mystery for months to come.
When will we find out? If Kris Jenner has her way, when it airs on Hulu.
According to these Twitter users, anyway.
Our thoughts are with Travis and his entire family at this time.
Yes, we’d all love to understand what’s going on, but what matters most is that he make a swift and complete recovery.
