Apparently doing research or getting confirmations is a thing of the past. Yesterday various media outlets reported that Travis Barker's assistant, who died in the plane crash, boarded the plane to rush home to his wife, who was reportedly in labor. We've now learned that the entire story was fabricated.
"Various outlets have published a grossly erroneous and exaggerated reported that the plane was chartered so they could get home for the birth of Chris Baker's second child. This is untrue," reps said in a statement to Us Weekly.
"The group chartered the plane to go to the next party they were playing out. In fact, Chris's wife was not in labor and she wasn't even pregnant. They already have a two-year-old child. That is not why they chartered the plane and this report is completely false."
It's not only sad, but it’s disgusting that someone would completely make up a story like that. It's bad enough having to deal with the death of a loved one, the last thing the family needs is to deal with BS stories on the internet.
