Over the weekend, 30-year-old rapper Travis Scott became an unwitting participant in a tragic incident that claimed the lives of eight people. The singer performed at the Astroworld music festival in Houston, which was supposed to take place back that year, but was postponed due to the coronavirus. The event caused a great stir and attracted a huge number of fans of the musician. During the rapper's performance, his fans began to break through to the stage, resulting in a huge crush. More than three hundred people were injured, eight people died, and a ten-year-old child was among the dead.

Now a victim named Manel Sousa is suing the rapper, accusing him of contributing to the violence. He is seeking at least $ 1,000,000 in damages and a temporary restraining order to prevent any destruction of evidence.

The lawsuit details all the chaos that unfolded after fans broke through the security fence and stampeded. According to the plaintiff, the defendants deliberately made the decision to allow the show to continue, despite the high risk of harm to the concert goers.

A source close to Travis Scott said the rapper was unaware of the extent of the incident while on stage.

He was blinded by the light, and he could not see what was happening. He thought that someone had just passed out, which sometimes happens during concerts,

– said the insider.

In an official statement on Saturday, Scott, who is now one of the most successful and popular rap artists (his album Astroworld, which was released in 2018, went double platinum), expressed condolences to the families of the victims and announced his willingness to cooperate with the police.

I am absolutely devastated by what happened last night. My prayers go to families and all those affected by what happened at Astroworld,

– he tweeted.

Scott's 24-year-old beloved Kylie Jenner, who is now expecting a second child from him, also expressed condolences to the relatives of the victims. She, however, was also criticized for ignoring requests from the rapper's fans to stop the show when the stampede began. Kylie, who attended the concert, said she only found out about the victims and injuries from the news.
