Travis Barker Reveals He Was 'Borderline Suicidal' in 2004
The 39-year-old Blink-182 drummer and new boyfriend of Rita Ora will be releasing a memoir titled “Can I Say” later this month.
Travis opened up in the interview about the lowest point in his life, which happened back in Australia in 2004.
“I was so addicted to Oxycodone, and I had a security that would actually sleep during the day and then stay up at night to make sure I was breathing. That was pretty pathetic,” Travis said. “My bones were so brittle from so much painkiller use. I had this moment when I got to Europe for that tour where I really identified myself as a dumpster. And I wasn’t proud. I was scared. I had to call [Blink-182 member] Mark [Hoppus] and say, ‘Hey, man. I’m like borderline suicidal. I’m going crazy. I need to go home.’ Like not even one show had started. I’d been there two days. I hadn’t slept one day. It was like naw, man. I need to go home and get my head right. So I think that was the most disappointing time.”
