Travis Barker reveals he has COVID-19… months after being hospitalized with ‘life threatening’ pancreatitis

Travis Barker revealed he has tested positive for coronavirus on Thursday, just two months after being hospitalized for a ‘serve life-threatening’ bout of pancreatitis.

While announcing the news to his more than seven million Instagram followers, the  46-year-old rock star shared a shirtless snap of himself drumming in a dimly-lit room.

‘Covid sucks,’ the dad-of-two, who is currently performing on tour with Machine Gun Kelly on his Mainstream Sellout Tour, captioned the snap. ‘I’d rather be playing drums.’

At this time, neither Machine Gun Kelly or Barker’s wife, Kourtney Kardashian, have posted another whether or not they have also caught the highly contagious disease. 

On Tuesday, the Poosh founder, 43, shared multiple photos of herself ‘backstage’ with her man as they held hands on one of tour stops in Cleveland, Ohio.

In June, Kardashian revealed she contracted the virus for a second time, the same month her spouse revealed his pancreatitis was triggered by a polyp removal ‘in a very sensitive area’ during an endoscopy.

At the time, Kardashian re-posted Barker’s Instagram Story and added her own sentiments, thanking God ‘for healing my husband’ after the ‘scary and emotional week’ they had.

‘I went in for an endoscopy Monday feeling great. But After dinner, I developed excruciating pain and have been hospitalized ever since,’ Travis wrote.

‘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 added: ‘I am so very very grateful that with intensive treatment I am currently much better,’ closing the message with a praying hands emoji.

Kourtney meanwhile wrote: ‘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 continued: ‘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 reality star added: ‘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.’

In a follow-up post, she wrote: ‘It’s crazy how sometimes words could never truly express the gratitude or feelings I have inside of me.’

At the time, a source told E! that Kourtney was trying to stay positive as she remained by his side at Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles.

The source added: ‘He was in extreme pain yesterday, and he and Kourtney were both really worried. It was to the point where he could barely walk.’
