Travis Scott’s Astroworld incident was a huge disaster, but it seems like he has gotten himself into trouble again. Travis has apparently assaulted his sound engineer at a club. The engineer has now come forward to describe how it all happened.
According to the sound engineer, Travis flipped him the bird and socked him in the head, landing him in the hospital with injuries. Identifying himself only as Mark, the engineer spoke with Fox 5 News from his hospital bed. The alleged assault took place at Club Nebula in Manhattan early Wednesday morning.
“My neck is f**ked up. My arm is tingling. I have pins and needles going down it.”
Talking to the reporter, Mark mentioned that his neck is busted and is unable to freely move it. Travis blared the DJ music so loudly that the audio sounded muffled. Mark claimed that Travis erupted into a frenzy when he tried to turn down the level.
“He stuck his middle finger in my face. So I lowered the monitor a little bit so I could talk to him, and that’s when he ran around the speaker and attacked me.”
Last Tuesday, Travis Scott performed with Don Toliver at the midtown club. Scott has been accused of causing $12,000 worth of damage after damaging a video screen and one of the speakers during the altercation. Now the New York police are searching for the rapper in wake of this assault.
Travis’ lawyer, Mitchell Schuster, told TMZ the incident was “a misunderstanding being blown out of proportion by clickbait and misinformation.” Schuster also said he’s working with the venue and law enforcement to resolve the situation. He strongly believes Travis will be “cleared of any wrongdoing.”
Investigators are currently reviewing the club’s surveillance video to get into the depths of the issue. Scott is set to take the stage on Saturday, a day after Kodak Black performs. Even after this incident, the rapper is still expected to perform in Inglewood on Saturday.
