Kourtney Kardashian isn’t here for the paparazzi posting old photos of The Kardashians star amid Travis Barker’s health scare and is calling them out. Kourtney and Travis recently took to social media to thank fans for their support following reports of Travis being hospitalized for pancreatitis. The Blink-182 star was rushed to Cedars Sinai early last week after experiencing pain following an endoscopy. His daughter asked fans for prayers as many expressed their concern for Travis’ well-being.
The health scare comes on the heels of Kourtney and Travis’s lavish wedding in Italy where a small group of family and friends watched them exchange their vows. Travis and Kourtney have been enjoying their newlywed status but had their honeymoon phase rocked by an unexpected hospital visit. The couple took to social media over the weekend to give an update amid Travis’s hospitalization. “I developed excruciating pain and have been hospitalized ever since,” Travis explained in an Instagram Story post. Kourtney shared the same message and expressed her gratitude to the hospital staff who worked to get her husband back to a better state.
In a separate post, Kourtney cleared up media reports that allegedly fabricated her whereabouts amid Travis’s hospitalization. “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,” Kourtney wrote in the post. She noted how the outfit she was wearing was something she wore so long ago, “I can’t even remember the last time I wore that sweatsuit in the photos,” Kourtney explained. The Poosh founder went on to warn the paps, “I didn’t forget about you.” Kourtney proceeded to blast the “low” paparazzi” for “monetizing” off of her family’s “nightmare,” she wrote. “Really savagely uncool when I actually didn’t leave his side…shame you,” Kourtney quipped.
Kim Kardashian showed her support for Kourtney by reposting the message on her Instagram Story. Kourtney’s message comes a day after she and Travis explained his health scare in lengthy Instagram Story posts. The rock star said he was feeling “great” after his endoscopy on Monday. But immediately after dinner, he had to rush to the hospital for “excruciating” pain. Travis ended up having “a very small polyp removed right in a very sensitive area,” Travis explained in his post. It’s a process “usually handled by specialists,” Travis shared. But his procedure “damaged a critical pancreatic drainage tube,” and put the newlywed in the emergency room for “severe life-threatening pancreatitis,” he wrote.
After surviving another near-death experience, Travis expressed his gratitude for his health and confirmed that he is feeling “much better.” Kourtney’s frustration with the paparazzi is understandable considering the sincerity of the situation her family is currently facing. Kourtney is having her honeymoon put on pause as her husband battles serious health matters. The Kardashians are often accused of staging paparazzi photoshoots. But this time around, Kourtney is letting the public know she doesn’t stage shoots and isn’t here for the paps portraying false narratives of her.
