Travis' First Interview Post-Plane Crash Interview

| Filed under: Legal MattersTravis Barker

In his first interview since the tragic plane crash that left him with third degree burns, Travis Barker told E! News, "If something goes wrong that's not supposed to go wrong or you fall victim of it, I think you should be compensated."

The drummer has filed a lawsuit over the crash, saying that he "didn't ask" to be covered in the third degree burns that now prevent him from doing a lot of the things he used to love doing, such as swimming.

DJ AM, however, is not part of the lawsuit, and Barker said he could not speak for him.

But, the lawsuit is not simply about him. Barker said, "I lost two friends in the accident. Nothing can bring them back or what I lost in the accident."

A lawsuit isn't going to bring them back either.

Well, best of luck.

    Hey Trav, wanta burn one?



  2. 2

    He's an asshole.



  3. 3

    Yawn.



  4. 4

    lawsuit? yea it really isnt



  5. 5

    Who does he sue? I thought it was pilot error, and she's dead. Sue happy motherfucker.



  6. 6

    the law suit is a pointless way to gain more money and publicity which he does not need good thing djam has some dignity



  7. 7

    it is really unfortunate what happened to him and his friends. im about to enter my own lawsuit against Audrina Patridge's agent for not relasing a hardcore porn starring her and those eyes of hers. i love the way her eyes look when she is looking up.



  8. 8

    Hey Travis, that's why they are called ACCIDENTS. It's not like they wanted to have the plane crash. Jackass.



  9. 9

    PEREZ FIX YOUR SITE!!!!

    He seems a bit self obsessed, yet weak. Let the families of the ones who didn't live sue, and leave it alone. I hate the way he treats Shauna. He should be good to her and be happy to have the life he has. He seems to fall prey to all of the people around him who advise him without having his and his family's best interests at heart. The lawyers will get rich, wooo hoooo! I wish he would just settle down with his (ex) wife and kids and be a grown up.



  11. 11

    I think when he said Nothing will bring his friends back covered the Lawsuit as well…so your Smug High and Mighty remark was uncalled for Tubby.



  12. 12

    A lawsuit might not bring them back, but will help to avoid accidents in the future.



  13. 13

    He look a little ashy.



  14. 14

    WHAT? Too soon?



  15. 15

    COMPLETE DOUCHEBAGGERY!!!!!!!!!!!



  16. 16

    I cant how stupid and selfish most of you are. He lost 2 friends and lost of enjoyment of life. Travis will probably have some residual injuries (mental and/or physical) not visible to any of us. He should sue so should the family members of the guys who died. they have every right to sue the plane company, tire manufacturer and anyone else involved. Let the rich companies get out of the case on their own. I agree with masterdeluniverso and sarcasm.



  17. 17

    A lawsuit because he can't swim like regular people? How about people that can't afford to eat like regular people? Who should they sue? Please, it was a horrible accident, but is there really a need to sue? I hate that people instantly want to sue someone else for their suffering. Nobody forced him to go on the plane. He chose to. And we all know there's a chance the damn thing could go down. Horrible but it's a fact of life. He can afford all the care he needs, and then some. Stop feeling sorry for yourself and be really phucking grateful your alive!



  18. 18

    Yeah..Travis needs more money….ok….whatever….



  19. 19

    oh whatever just be thankful your not fucking dead douche!



  20. 20

    This is probably the best I've seen him look. Maybe the plane crash did wonders for his looks. That being said, I think I'd fuck him. He looks like he has a big dick.



  21. 21

    It was only a matter of time before someone sued



  22. 22

    "like yah man. I spent THOUSANDS on my tats and now I'm going to need surgery to get them reapplied."



  23. 23

    What a fucking tool. Like this society isn't litigious enough. The asshole is lucky to be alive.



  24. 24

    He's suing for only 25,000$….so it doesn't seem like he's doing it for money. I'm a lawyer and can tell you that with his injuries, not to mention mental anguish…he could certainly sue for much,much more (providing there was some kind of negligence, faulty equipment,etc). His lawsuit could help the other families of the deceased as well, there is always strenght in numbers. I'm sure they will be launching their own. How can anyone say it's selfish to hold a company accountable for permanent disfigurement, and suffering?.



  25. 25

    Well. How jewish of him. He ought to just thank god he's alive and appreciate that for what it is.



  26. 26

    What a shit faced grin he has. Lawsuit. Donate all the money to Charity…..when given a second chance shouldn't you be grateful not spiteful??? Asshole.



  27. 27

    He should get tatoos on his new skin.

    Re: masterdeluniverso – No it won't



  29. 29

    hey dumbshit—that's why its called an "accident"



  30. 30

    perez, this is NOT travis' first interview. didnt you watch the trl finale? travis spoke, via satellite, on that. you can read the details at sizzling.wordpress.com

    Re: masterdeluniverso – How will this help stop future accidents? No FAA Policy Mandate will come of this, no airlines will be affected due to this, nothing will stop these unfortunate things from happening. Accidents happen. The person who is at fault is the pilot as proper protocol for a blown tired after V1 is to take off, not try to brake as minimum braking distances have been exceeded.

    The rules for these events are in place and work the vast majority of the time. In fact I can only think of one other time a blown tire has been directly related to a serious crash: Concorde.



  32. 32

    I feel bad for him, but I agree, a lawsuit doesn't change a thing.



  33. 33

    He makes a lot of sense.

  34. lynn says – reply to this


    34

    Oh he didn't 'ask' to be covered in burns…what goes around comes around and he should live with his fucking KARMA the dirty dog. Sue yourself Travis and for once, just once, take responsibilty for your self absorbed little shit of a life.



  35. 35

    What a stupid question, ya dumb bitch.



  36. 36

    first of all, he is lucky to be alive and he should be happy that all he got was third degree burns. sure he didn't ask for third degree burns, but his friends didn't ask to die and neither did the other people on the plane!!!! it is an absurd and douchebag move on his part. accidents happen, doode!!! he can't swim, big deal, he can breathe, walk, see his family, etc. things others on that plane can no longer do.



  37. 37

    I think this sueing idea was a BAD idea. He can't swim? SO? IT could have been way worse… like um, losing his life?! How about that? What about THOSE people? Who DIED? I think he should drop the whole thing and thank his lucky stars that he survived. HELLLOOO it was a TINY plane, those things are terrible. I would never ride in one, for fear of that exact reason, they are too faulty and accidents happen way more often on those things than commercial planes. Maybe he should have been like every other person and just flown on a regular plane.



  38. 38

    awwww….he "can't do things that normal people can do" like swimming. aww…boooooo fucking hoo. Two people were burned to death in that plane. Is this guy kidding? Travis Barker, what a fucking loser.



  39. 39

    Hey Trav….ur a fag and thats very unrock star of you. People who get cancer….they didnt ask for it…but they dont sue people! Im glad ur ok and all…but thats uncool.



  40. 40

    yeah a lawsuit won't bring his friends back but, it he has every right to sue.. I don't see the big deal let him be stop hating cause ur not getting any money out of it..lol



  41. 41

    I am sorry you cannot swim anymore. I swim every day for a back injury. My son is a drummer and it is his life, so I hope u can alest drum again. Thinking of you in this time of despair. My mother was a drug adict and set the house on fire and did not call fire. I was rescued by the firemen. I was sleeping at the time so I know a bit about this. I also got the firemen to open the side door so the dogs could get out and they did. Sorry for ur loss.



  42. 42

    U cannot tattoo over most scares. I have tried it.



  43. 43

    It is really unfortunate what happened to him and his friends.
