Travis Barker abruptly exits Blink-182 tour for 'urgent family matter'

Travis Barker has abruptly stepped way from touring with Blink-182, the band announced Friday.

"Due to an urgent family matter, Travis has had to return home to the States," according to the band's official X (the website formerly known as Twitter) account. "The Glasgow, Belfast, and Dublin shows are being postponed. More information in regards to his return to Europe and rescheduled dates will be provided as soon as available."

The Blink-182 drummer is currently expecting his first child with wife Kourtney Kardashian; each has children of their own from previous relationships.

Photographs emerged over the weekend of Barker with Kardashian, who still appears to be pregnant. TMZ and Page Six said the images were taken Saturday and show the couple leaving a Los Angeles-area hospital.

USA TODAY has reached out to Barker's representative for more information.

Kardashian held up a sign in the crowd at a Los Angeles tour stop for the band in June, sharing the message that she's expecting. "Travis, I'm pregnant," the sign read in all caps, as Kardashian jumped up and down, smiling and laughing.

Both Kardashian and Barker shared video footage of the emotional moment to their Instagram accounts after the announcement.

On Father's Day, Kardashian shared a series of photos showing off her baby bump.

In one photo, Kardashian is sitting on Barker's lap as the two look lovingly at each other. In another, he's kissing her belly.

"Overwhelmed with gratitude and joy for God’s blessing and plan," Kardashian captioned the photos.

The two wed in 2022 at an Italian ceremony, draped in Dolce & Gabbana for the Portofino, Italy, nuptials. Barker popped the question in October 2021, eight months after they made their relationship Instagram official days after Valentine's Day.

The Italian wedding came about a month after the rocker and the reality star had a wedding ceremony in Las Vegas, after Barker's 2022 Grammys performance.

Kardashian shares kids Mason, 13, Penelope, 11, and Reign, 8, with ex Scott Disick. Barker shares kids Landon, 19, and Alabama, 17, with ex Shanna Moakler (Barker was also stepfather to Moakler's daughter with Oscar De la Hoya, Atiana).
