Moakler shares Alabama Barker, 16, and Landon Barker, 18, with Travis, and together they raised Atiana De La Hoya, 23. She also said she’s hoping “for a speedy recovery and for the comfort of my children as I know they are very concerned and worried.”

A source close to Kourtney Kardashian revealed to the publication that Travis suffered from “extreme pain”; therefore, he had to be rushed to the hospital. “It was to the point where he could barely walk,” the insider said, adding, “Kourtney is trying to lift his spirits and hates seeing him in excruciating pain.”
