Landon Barker leaned on family friend Machine gun Kelly as father Travis Barker remains hospitalized with reported pancreatitis. The 18-year-old was appearing at MGK’s massive Madison Square Garden show in New York City when news broke that Travis was being taken to hospital on Tuesday, June 28.

“Landon has handled the whole situation like a pro and he is so grateful to have Colson by his side as he is really like family to him,” said a source. HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY. “Colson is like a big brother to Landon and it was very reassuring to know he had his back,” the insider added. MGK and Travis Barker, in particular, have a longstanding friendship through the music scene.

Ahead of the performance, Landon – who Travis shares with ex-wife Shana Moakler — was “in constant communication” with stepmother Kourtney Kardashian and younger sister Alabama, 16, “when he could.” The insider explained that “Landon was made aware of the situation shortly after Travis started feeling sick because they had been talking all day.” Landon initially made the news through a family WhatsApp chain.

“Landon called Kourtney before and after to ask how his father was doing as he was very concerned. Kourtney told Landon that there were a lot of people around Travis and now you don’t have to worry,” the source added. “She and Alabama both spoke to Landon and said there’s nothing he can do, so just focus on performing on your show and killing it because that’s what Travis wants.”

Landon has followed in his father’s footsteps since 2018, when he began performing R&B inspired music as OTG Landon with the lead single “Don’t Need Her”. That same year, he made his live debut at The Roxy Theater in West Hollywood. While his father is known for his music in the rock space – mainly with Blink 182 – Travis is a well-known hip-hop collaborator who has collaborated with rappers like young criminal

A second insider noted that his family is “really proud of him” for his recent performance. “Landon was already in New York preparing for the show when everything went wrong with Travis, he wanted to rush home, but that’s the last thing his dad would want,” they told HL. “Performing at Madison Square Gardens was such a huge opportunity and something his father helped prepare him for, so he did the right thing by persevering even with all the stress. Everyone is really proud of him.”
