Travis Scott is going through one of the toughest phases in his career. The Astroworld Festival tragedy, which is barely a month old, has landed Scott, Live Nation & many more in a heap of legal trouble.

Scott tried to contain the controversy by the release of a press release from his team. After he personally took to Instagram and posted a video of himself mourning the loss of life at the event, fans did not resonate with him and he ended up turning into a meme.

The rapper has finally recognized the lawsuits. However, he has denied any claims of his wrongdoing which most of the lawsuits make, according to TMZ. The motion, that was filed on the rapper’s behalf, has denied any wrongdoing in response to a lawsuit filed to him by an attendee of the event, Jessie Garcia.

Scott wants the lawsuit to entirely remove any mention of his name, his company Jack Enterprises, and his label, Cactus Jack. The response allows him to address multiple suits at one time by claiming “general denial.”

The rapper has not addressed his own role in the tragedy, and not has he admitted or apologized for what transpired. The claims mean that the rapper is publicly claiming that he was not at fault in any way. The lawsuits, which amount to $4 billion in damages, made Scott recruit legal teams formerly employed by Donald Trump and Harvey Weinstein.
