More Than 125 Fans File $750 Million Lawsuit Against Travis Scott Over Astroworld Tragedy


More than 125 fans have sued rapper Travis Scott for $750 million over the deadly Astroworld Festival incident that left 10 dead and hundreds injured earlier this month.

 

The lawsuit, filed by Houston Attorney Tony Buzbee,  who had previously been representing at least 35 victims from the concert - accuses Scott and festival organizers of 'gross negligence' for the chaos at Astroworld on November 5.


The suit also names Live Nation, Epic Records Drake, and Apple as defendants for their involvement in organizing the festival, and Buzbee plans to file another lawsuit with 100 more plaintiffs in the coming days.   

 

'No amount of money will ever make these Plaintiffs whole; no amount of money can restore human life,' Buzbee said in the lawsuit. 

 

'But, the damages sought in this case attempts to fix, help, or make up for the harms and losses suffered by these Plaintiffs -- nothing more and nothing less.'


The lawsuit comes as W Magazine is reportedly scrambling to pull their next issue featuring Kylie Jenner and Scott on the cover after the Astroworld Festival tragedy. 

 

Buzbee alleges that Scott incited the crowd frenzy as he has often praised violence in mosh pits and yelled at attendees to attack one another. 

 

Buzbee claims Scott and the concert promoters and organizers failed to have protective measures in place to protect the concert-goers.
