Travis Barker spoke to E! about the lawsuit he has filed as a result of his September plane crash. Barker has filed a suit against the owner and makers of a “defective” Learjet that he was traveling in when it crashed in South Carolina, severely burning Barker and DJ Am and killing four – including the pilot and co-pilot. “I wouldn’t have been in the state I was in if I wasn’t in the crash,” Barker said on Sunday. “I wouldn’t have third-degree burns all over my body or be prohibited to do certain things. I can’t go swimming. I can’t do some of the things that normal people can do. I didn’t ask for that to happen.”
