Travis Barker Hints at COVID Diagnosis After Recent 'Life-Threatening' Health Issue

Two months earlier, the Blink-182 drummer was hospitalized due to 'severe life-threatening pancreatitis' after he 'developed excruciating pain' following an endoscopy.

AceShowbiz - Travis Barker cannot even catch a break. The Blink-182 drummer appears to be battling another health issue after hinting he has COVID-19, just two months after being hospitalized with a "life-threatening" health scare.

Turning to his Instagram account on Thursday, August 18, the husband of Kourtney Kardashian shared the news with a shirtless snapshot of himself swinging some drumsticks. "Covid sucks [an angry red-face emoji] I'd rather be playing drums," he captioned the image.

In the comment section of the post, many of his fans and followers sent him speedy recovery messages. "Get better, rest and water!" one person wrote, with someone adding, "Damn. Get well brother." A third cheered, "U GOT THIS."

Travis has been performing on tour with Machine Gun Kelly for the last leg of MGK's "Mainstream Sellout Tour", which is set to conclude in October. As MGK shared earlier this month, Travis has supposedly been going against his doctor's orders to perform live, following his concerning battle with pancreatitis.

In late June, Travis was unexpectedly hospitalized due to "severe life-threatening pancreatitis." At the time, the 46-year-old drummer alerted his fans, "I went in for an endoscopy Monday feeling great. But after dinner, I developed excruciating pain and I have been hospitalized ever since."

"During the endoscopy, I had a very small polyp removed right in the very sensitive area, usually handled by specialists, which unfortunately damaged a critical pancreatic drainage tube," he continued. "This resulted in severe life-threatening pancreatitis."

Travis' wife Kourtney has also recently had the virus for the second time. "The Kardashians" star made a full recovery in June. At the time, the Poosh founder used her diagnosis to plug her products as she offered "tips" as to how to successfully battle the highly-contagious virus.

Earlier this month, it was reported that both Travis and Kourtney, who are considering trying to have a baby together, are putting their health as their "top priority." A source also spilled that the happy couple is "living life to the fullest," adding that "married life has been amazing and the kids are all adjusted."
