From surviving armed robberies, severe drug addiction, and the 2008 plane crash that killed four and left him with burns on over half of his body — Blink-182's Travis Barker has faced overwhelming struggle throughout his life.
In a recent interview with Billboard mag, the 39-year-old sat down to discuss his memoir Can I Say: Living Large, Cheating Death, And Drums, Drums, Drums hitting shelves October 20.
The father of two has constantly dealt with substance addiction, which led to some of his darkest days:
"My breakfast was four blunts, four Vicodin, one Valium, one Oxycodone. 'Cause that was the only way I could leave the house. I had to medicate myself before I could even think about getting in the car. It was tough."
Wow, Shanna Moakler pulled no punches in this interview!
An interview with Moakler appears in the Daily Mail on Sunday, with the ex-beauty queen calling out the X Factor UK judge for her involvement with Barker.

Or at least, we know Travis is! He even posted this sweet message to Instagram on Monday:

An insider said:
"Rita sought him out and gave him her info… They have been together every day since."
But don't think this fling is one-sided! Barker feels the love as well!
A source explained:
The end of an era… again.
Back in January there were a ton of rumblings that he might be leaving the trio. Travis Barker, the band's drummer, even seemed to hit a boiling point by essentially saying that Tom should just man up and admit he's quitting the band.
Mark seemed to back up these claims by saying that Tom was the weak link and that "Tom was embarrassed because he doesn't want to do Blink."
Despite all these claims, even from his bandmates, Delonge's responded by saying:
