Travis Scott has been devastated by the events of his Astroworld concert. The event which left 10 people dead and thousands injured, has led to over 250 lawsuits in the name of Travis Scott, Live Nation & Astroworld officials and many other artists involved.

The lawsuits, which are for over $2 billion, demand quite a lot of legal firepower. It seems that Scott is in no mood to play around, as he has been recruiting some of the biggest lawyers to put up a fight.

Scott has recruited the likes of lawyers who have previously served former POTUS Donald Trump and Harvey Weinstein in their legal battles. Daniel Petrocelli, the head of litigation at O’Melveny & Myers LLP, is going to aid Scott with the Astroland Festival lawsuit battle.

The Astroworld tragedy only transpired a month ago, but Hulu has already advertising a documentary based on examining the event that left 10 people dead. Many have strongly criticized it.

Scott’s upcoming album Utopia was under the process of being marketed to the full extent. Amid the controversy, the album’s mention has disappeared from the rapper’s Instagram handle. The rapper is expecting another baby with Kylie Jenner, which means he has to take care of his problems as soon as possible.
