Travis Scott is facing accusations that his recklessness led to the tragedy that killed eight concertgoers at the Astroworld festival in Houston. At least seven lawsuits have been filed against the rapper, who is also the founder of the festival. Scott has agreed to pay for the funerals of those lost in the stampede.
Scott’s former manager Shane Morris is now calling out Travis Scott for more alleged wanton disregard for human life and safety. Morris posted a video online where he told all. He says he’s not surprised at all by the events that unfolded and that Travis once left him for dead.
“Travis Scott is the worst person I worked with in my entire career in music. Eight people are dead and hundreds more injured after Travis Scott’s callous, reckless behavior at Astroworld and I hate to be the one saying this, but I saw this coming, and I tried to tell everyone.
I’m Travis Scott’s former manager. I’m the one who had a seizure and I’m the one that he left for dead in a basement in Los Angeles,” said Morris. “I originally told my account in 2013 and then it recirculated on Reddit about six years ago.”
Morris says Scott ignored warnings and cries for help from fans who were being crushed by the swelling crowd. He also said that Scott’s popularity was artificially inflated earlier in his career. The former manager said he used bots to artificially jack up Travis’ play counts.
Travis Scott will be thoroughly investigated for his role in the accident. With several lawsuits already pending against him, he’s got an uphill battle. It’s going to be hard for him to relaunch a touring career at this point. No venue in their right mind would book him.
