Travis Scott’s concert on Friday night at Astroworld Festival did not turn out as he planned at all. Tragedy struck and fans rushed the stage. 8 people have died so far, many more were hospitalized, and this was allegedly a targeted attack. Now we are getting information from Scott’s camp.

The rapper had no idea what was going on at his own concert. He was on stage, lights in his face and music in his ear. He saw a few people who appeared to be in distress, and they were pointed out to security. The show was even paused a couple of times as he got fans help. Travis Scott did not realize the severity of the events he was providing the soundtrack for at all.

According to TMZ, Travis Scott hasn’t stopped crying since that concert. His camp wasn’t even told about the deaths or hospitalizations until after the show was over. Kylie Jenner is around and helping him out as emotional support, but this is a terrible situation that has him as an emotional wreck.

Sources with direct knowledge tell TMZ … Travis is utterly devastated over what transpired Friday, and he’s beside himself over it. We’re told he’s been crying since it all happened, and he’s an emotional wreck.


A 14-year-old boy was one of the 8 concertgoers who lost their life. Other minors are also hospitalized. It is believed that someone was shooting drugs into fans’ necks in the crowd. Enough people on that unknown drug caused this chaos.

Our thoughts go out to all those affected by this tragic event.
