AceShowbiz - Kourtney Kardashian has called out paparazzi who tried to make money from her family's suffering. The reality TV star has spoken up on weeks-old pictures which were falsely claimed to have shown her "out and about" while her husband Travis Barker was in the hospital.
Taking to her Instagram Story on Saturday night, July 2, the mother of three blasted the shutterbugs. "And to the paparazzi who sold pictures of me 'out and about' while my husband was in the hospital fighting for his life...these photos were actually taken weeks ago, (I can't even remember the last time I wore that sweatsuit in the photos)....I didn't forget about you," she wrote.
The "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" alum added, "A new level of low, monetizing off of our nightmare. Really savagely uncool when I actually didn't leave his side...shame on you."
In another post, Kourtney opened up on Travis' medical emergency. "Oh what a scary and emotional week it has been. Our health is everything and sometimes we take for granted how quickly it can change. Travis and I went in for a routine endoscopy together and he ended up with severe, life-threatening pancreatitis," she said.
"I am so grateful to God for healing my husband, for all of your prayers for him and for us, for the overwhelming outpouring of love and support. I am so touched and appreciative," the TV personality continued. "I am so so thankful to our specialists, doctors, and nurses at Cedars Sinai for taking such wonderful care of my husband and me during our stay."
Meanwhile, Travis himself took to his own Stories to give an update on his condition. "I went in for an endoscopy Monday feeling great. But after dinner, I developed excruciating pain and have been hospitalized ever since," he first penned.
"During the endoscopy, I had a very small polyp removed right in a very sensitive area, usually handled by specialists, which unfortunately damaged a critical pancreatic drainage tube. This resulted in severe life threatening pancreatitis," the Blink-182 drummer continued. "I am so very very grateful that with intensive treatment I am currently much better."
Travis was pictured lying on a stretcher outside of Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on June 28. He was accompanied by his wife Kourtney as he was being wheeled out of the ambulance while holding up his right hand.
