Travis Barker is reportedly suing those responsible for recent medical issues that have prevented him from touring and drumming with his band, Blink-182.
The 42-year-old has targeted a bus driver that struck his SUV in California in July as well as a medical office for allegedly giving him a staph infection.
TMZ reports that Barker is suing a school bus driver and bus company after its driver allegedly made an illegal left turn that caused a collision with his car in Calabasas this summer. It’s unclear how much the star is asking for in either lawsuit, but the outlet reports the amount will likely be a lot given that the injuries suffered have caused him to miss shows with the band and turn down numerous others.
As previously reported, Barker suffered a staph infection this summer, which he claims happened when he visited the Medical Imaging Center in Santa Monica. He came in for a routine checkup and MRI prior to his upcoming tour. However, when technicians had difficulty finding a vein, they reportedly stuck him more than 40 times before they got it right. Barker’s lawsuit allegedly claims that a dirty needle was used, leading to the infection.
“Drumming is my life and it kills me that I can’t perform for you guys this weekend. I hope to be back as soon as I can,” Barker said in a statement accompanying a show cancellation at the time.
Representatives for Barker had no additional comment when reached by Fox News.
