Travis Barker ‘re-admitted to hospital with blood clots’

Travis Barker has been re-admitted to hospital after being struck down with cellulitis as well as blood clots and a staph infection.

The 42-year-old drummer was admitted to a Los Angeles hospital last week with blood clots in both arms and a staph infection, but he was released on Monday evening (18.06.18) only to return on Tuesday morning (19.06.18) suffering from the skin infection.

Sources told TMZ that despite heading back to the medical facility to battle cellulitis, the Blink-182 stickman has a “positive attitude” and is looking forward to returning to the stage.

Travis took to his Twitter last week to reveal he was suffering from blood clots and a staph infection.

He tweeted: “Blood clots in both arms and a staff infection wasn’t the news I was hoping for. I’ll be back soon, thanks for all the love & prayers (sic)”

As a result, Blink-182 had to postpone their Las Vegas residency at the Palms Hotel and Casino on Friday (15.06.18) and Saturday (16.06.18), on doctor’s orders.

A statement posted on the band’s Twitter reads: “Friends, Travis Barker is suffering from blood clots in both arms and unfortunately cannot perform until cleared to do so by his medical team.
