by Megan Molseed

News that Blink 182 drummer, Travis Barker has been hospitalized hit the media circuit Tuesday afternoon. The music star’s daughter Alabama, who the drummer shares with ex-wife Shanna Moakler, posted to her Instagram story a message asking fans to please “send your prayers.”

The news broke as TMZ reported the Blink 182 drummer’s arrival at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. Travis Barker’s new bride, reality TV star Kourtney Kardashian, was by her husband’s side when he arrived at the hospital. The drummer entered the hospital via a stretcher after arriving by ambulance.

Earlier Tuesday morning, Travis Barker appeared to have alluded to something being wrong. The rocker sent out a mysteriously ominous message via his Twitter account. The message, which was sent around 10:45 a.m. Tuesday morning reads simply “God save me.”

However, reports note that this ominous message may not be connected to whatever health issues sent Barker to the hospital Tuesday. It has been noted that “God Save Me” is the song title for a project on which the drummer recently collaborated with another famous name in music, Machine Gun Kelly.
