After the Astroworld catastrophe, Travis Scott has been under a lot of strain. Following the show’s deadly toll of ten fatalities and hundreds of injuries, Scott has faced numerous lawsuits from the relatives of those who died. The artist now faces an even more daunting challenge.
Since the incident, the rapper has been trapped in his home, according to reports. While his attorney stated that La Flame was unaware of the tragedy until later, he has missed out on several crucial deals.
The release of Nike’s collaborative shoes with Scott has been delayed. With the mounting legal difficulties piling up, Scott now faces an even larger obstacle.
125 fans and the families of the victims in the calamity have now filed a lawsuit against Travis Scott, Drake, Apple, Live Nation, and other corporations.TMZ reports that $750 million is being sought as compensation for those who were injured or died as a result of the Astroworld fire. The lawsuit, which was filed, demands money for both physical and mental health issues as well as the loss of life.
The case is handled by Houston attorney Tony Buzbee, who said:
The families of the deceased are entitled to compensation that will compensate them for what they have lost. No amount of money can ever repair or replace their lives. The damages sought in this case, on the other hand, attempt to compensate these plaintiffs for their losses and injuries — nothing more and nothing less.
After the tragedy, Travis Scott and Astroworld offered all of their attendees a refund.
No doubt, the lawsuits and the serious nature of the incident will most likely prevent any brands or media outlets from working with Scott in the future.
