Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker was hospitalized in Los Angeles today for unknown reasons, according to multiple reports.

There is no word on what prompted the visit to the hospital. On Tuesday morning, Barker tweeted simply, “God save me” but, without more context, it’s unclear if this words were related to his hospitalization.

“God Save Me” is also the title of a song off Machine Gun Kelly’s recently-released album Mainstream Sellout, which Barker produced. The song, which Barker co-wrote, is in part about drug addiction, recovery, mental imbalance and fame.

Late Tuesday afternoon, his 16-year-old daughter, Alabama Luella Barker, posted a note on Instagram saying, “Please send your prayers.”

Deadline first reported that Barker is developing an unscripted series called Inked and Iced. It will follow drummer’s new business venture with “diamond dentist” Dr. Tom Connelly, featuring celebrities and musicians undergoing high-end diamond dental implants while simultaneously receiving full-body tattoos, all while under anesthesia.

Barker was part of an all-star band at this year’s Oscars which also featured the show’s music director Adam Blackstone, percussionist and singer Sheila E. and pianist Robert Glasper.

Barker’s first brush with reality television was in MTV’s Meet the Barkers, which ran for two seasons.
