Travis Scott is facing severe repercussions as a result of the Astroworld disaster. Now the lawsuits are piling up in a huge way, something that could cause huge consequences for the remainder of his career.
Brent Coon & Associates’ $10 billion lawsuit is now official. All cases related to the Astroworld disaster will be heard together.
According to Loop, Texas trial attorney Thomas J. Henry stated that his company filed a $2 billion lawsuit on behalf of some of the victims. Attorney Brent Coon of Coon & Associates has now joined those claims, demanding $10 billion in damages.
The cases include claims for brain injury, mental discomfort, bruising, and heart attacks. Several individuals perished at the Astroworld Disaster. Those lost included a 14-year-old, a 16-year-old, and more who died tragically young. In addition, 300 individuals were hospitalized for injuries. 11 of those concertgoers suffered cardiac arrests.
The Board of Judges of the Civil Trial Division of the Harris County District Courts voted to consolidate all cases filed in the District Clerk’s Office. The documentation noted that this was “concerning allegations made against Travis Scott, Live Nation Worldwide, Inc., Live Nation Entertainment, Inc., Bissonnet 136 LLC d/b/a Astroworld Festival, Travis Scott, including related individuals, entities and affiliates for damage and injures arising out of, or related to, the Astroworld Festival that took place on or about November 5, 2021, outside of NRG Park.”
Many people who were present with their families were injured as a result of the Astroworld disaster. Travis Scott must accept responsibility, but he has not apologized despite giving an hour-long interview after the tragedy. He offered to pay for funeral services for victims, but two families rejected his offer. Travis has publicly denied all of the claims filed against him.
