Just when you thought this story couldn’t get anymore tragic, it does. I’m warning you. This might completely ruin your Saturday night.
UPDATE: TMZ removed their original story and corrected it. Publicists for Travis Barker and DJ AM said their sources are telling lies. Chris’ wife was not about to go into labor at the time of the crash. That was also not the reason why they traveled on the Learjet. She’s not even pregnant.
TMZ reports that Travis Barker and his friends weren’t originally supposed to be on that Learjet last night. Earlier yesterday, Travis’ assistant, Chris Baker, found out his wife was about to go into labor. Travis promised Chris that he would do whatever he could to get him home as quickly as possible. They learned that the fastest way to get from South Carolina to Van Nuys was to travel by private jet.
Travis doesn’t usually fly by private plane, but did it so that Chris could be with his wife.
We all know what happened next. Four people including Chris were killed in the crash after midnight. Chris’ wife went into labor this morning. They also have another child together.
Travis and DJ AM are currently being treated at a burn center in Augusta, GA. People reports that Shanna Moakler has flown from Los Angeles to be with Travis. Her mother said they haven’t told Travi’s kids yet until they know more. Travis reportedly suffered burns from the waist down.
One of DJ AM’s friends told E! News that his face is very burned. The friend said, “More than 50 percent of his body is burned and the worst is on his face.” He has been put in a doctor-induced coma so he can undergo skin grafts.
There is a whole lot of sadness on this one post. On that note, I think this is our cue to crawl into bed with a big bottle of anything alocholic.
