Travis Scott has been under tremendous pressure after the Astroworld tragedy took place. After the concert left 10 of its attendees dead and hundreds injured, Scott has been facing a lot of legal action from the families of the victims. The rapper now has an even bigger problem to face.
The rapper has been locked in his house even since the tragedy, reportedly. While his attorney claimed that La Flame didn’t even know the tragedy had taken place until the next day, he has been losing out on many key deals.
Nike recently delayed the release of their collaborative sneakers with Scott, while the W dropped Kylie Jenner & Scott from their cover story. With the insurmountable legal trouble piling up, Scott has another huge problem.
Travis Scott, Drake, Apple, Live Nation and others have now been sued by 125 fans and the families of the victims in the tragedy. As per TMZ, the $750 million comes to seek damages for the victims of the Astroworld tragedy. With the demand of an unbelievably large amount, the lawsuit seeks compensation for both physical and mental health problems, along with those who lost their lives. The suit is filed by Houston attorney Tony Buzbee, who said:
No amount of money will ever make these Plaintiffs whole; no amount of money can restore human life. But, the damages sought in this case attempts to fix, help, or make up for the harms and losses suffered by these Plaintiffs — nothing more and nothing less.
Travis Scott & Astroworld offered refunds to all of its attendees after the tragedy occurred. Buzbee argued that it was “… a transparent and grotesque effort of the Defendants to limit their liability, after the fact, to the families of those killed or injured.”
La Flame’s history of promoting chaos has become the central focus to fans after the tragedy. While the artist’s album sales have skyrocketed, the lawsuits and the grave nature of the tragedy will likely deter any brands and media outlets to collaborate with Scott.
