Travis Scott loves performing in front of his fans and his fans love seeing him rap onstage as well. However, Travis Scott’s latest concert did not go as planned at all. It seems Travis Scott decided to arm himself with a former lawyer of Donald Trump.
As reported earlier, Travis Scott’s first night of his Astroworld concert in Houston ended in the deaths of 8 people after a stampede broke out. On top of that, more than 300 people also suffered injuries. Another has died from her injuries after being declared braindead.
That was not all as a 9-year-old succumbed to his injuries after getting trampled during the Astroworld concert. It simply kept on getting worse as days progressed. In addition to that, a Hulu documentary was made on the tragic incident, which led to a lot of outrage.
According to HipHopDX, Travis Scott has hired attorney Daniel Petrocelli to lead his defense. Petrocelli has worked on several high-profile cases, which includes defending former President Donald Trump in 2016 regarding Trump University real estate seminars.
Petrocelli will be joined by Steve Brody and Sabrina Strong, two partners from law firm O’Melveny & Myers LLP, where Petrocelli serves as the head of litigation. Over 100 lawsuits have been filed against Travis Scott so far and the amount has surpassed $750 million. We hope such a horrific incident never happens again.
