·1 min read

Travis Barker is hospitalized due to pancreatitis.

After the Blink-182 drummer was seen getting wheeled into Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on a stretcher on Tuesday, PEOPLE confirms Barker, 46, is suffering from pancreatitis, an inflammation of the organ that aids in digestion and regulating blood sugar.

"It was pancreatitis," a source close to the musician tells PEOPLE. "He was complaining of cramps."

Another insider tells PEOPLE, "Kourtney was worried yesterday. They both were. Travis was suffering from extreme stomach pain and could barely walk."
