Travis Scott has been embroiled in controversy ever since the Astroworld tragedy. The rapper has been heavily criticized for neglecting the safety of fans. It now seems that Scott’s negligence extended even further.

A source close to Scott revealed to TMZ that the rapper attended an after-party at Dave & Buster’s immediately after the incident at his performance. The source also stated that Travis was unaware that the incident had occurred.

Travis didn’t know the severity of the situation when he arrived at the party, as far as timing, this remains consistent with the fact that no one including the police had publicly confirmed the gravity of the events that had taken place.

The after-party was hosted by fellow rapper, Drake, who had performed two songs on stage with Travis Scott right before the latter’s set. As per reports, Drake was also unaware of the tragedy at the time.

The TMZ report also states that when Travis Scott was informed about the incident, he immediately left the party. This seems to support the claim that the rapper was unaware of the tragedy when he left the performance venue.

Both Drake and Travis Scott have since addressed the incident, with Travis Scott pledging to bear funeral costs for the victims.
