Travis Barker is hospitalized in Los Angeles — and now we know why.

The 46-year-old drummer and husband of Kourtney Kardashian has pancreatitis, according to multiple news outlets.

"Travis was sick and had intense pain in his abdomen and it really concerned him and Kourtney," a source told Entertainment Tonight. "They called 911 and he was rushed to the hospital. After speaking with Travis and running several tests, doctors said Travis is suffering from pancreatitis."

The source had not heard what caused the pancreatitis.

Here's everything we know about his health scare so far...

Travis went to West Hills Hospital and Medical Center near Calabasas, Calif., on Tuesday morning after experiencing an undisclosed health scare, according to TMZ. He was then rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A. for care. Kardashian was photographed with him.

According to the timeline, Travis tweeted "God save me" while seeking treatment. While that's obviously something to read into under the circumstances, it's also the title of a Machine Gun Kelly song.

People became more worried about the situation when Alabama, 16, posted to her social media followers a plea to: "Please send your prayers."

Alabama also asked for prayers from her TikTok followers. Her post included an image of her holding Travis's hand while he appeared to be in a hospital bed. In his other hand was a cellphone. Soon after, Alabama deleted her post.

Meanwhile, the drummer's 18-year-old son, Landon, was in New York City where he joined Machine Gun Kelly at his Madison Square Garden show on Tuesday night to perform their collaboration "Die in California."

Later, Landon attended an after-party with his new girlfriend, Charli D'Amelio. His Instagram has highlights from the night, but no mention of his dad's illness.

On Wednesday, multiple outlets confirmed with sources close to Travis that he had been diagnosed with pancreatitis, which is the inflammation of the gland that aids in digestion and regulating blood sugar.

In addition to the Entertainment Tonight report, People confirmed he had pancreatitis with a source noting he was complaining of cramps" on Tuesday.

Another insider told People, "Kourtney was worried yesterday. They both were."

According to Johns Hopkins, pancreatitis may be sudden (acute) or ongoing (chronic). Symptoms range from severe belly pain that can spread to the back or chest, nausea, vomiting, fever and rapid heart rate, among others. It can cause serious problems or be deadly in the most severe cases.

A rep for Travis has not yet responded to Yahoo Entertainment's request for comment. However, being hospitalized must be especially difficult for Travis having spent months hospitalized after his near-fatal 2008 plane crash that left him with PTSD. He overcame his fear of flying last year, taking his first flight in nearly 13 years with Kardashian.

The couple — dubbed Kravis and known for their PDA — has only been married a short time. They held a lavish wedding in Italy in late May. A week prior, they made it legal stateside in a courthouse ceremony in California. And, proving practice makes perfect, they actually eloped in Las Vegas a month before that but ended up not having the proper paperwork to make it legally binding.

The pair's romance has played out on Hulu's The Kardashians series though they have taken issue with how it's been edited.
