Travis Scott was reportedly sued for the Astroworld concert in Houston

Travis Scott was reportedly sued for the Astroworld concert in Houston.

HOUSTON – Rapper Travis Scott is facing at least one lawsuit from a concertgoer who was injured during Friday’s deadly Astroworld tragedy in Houston, which left eight dead and dozens injured.

According to Billboard, Astroworld aide, Manuel Souza filed a lawsuit against Scott on Saturday, as well as organizer ScoreMore and Live Nation, over the deadly festival. The lawsuit called the incident a “predictable and preventable tragedy.”

So far, Scott, ScoreMore, and Live Nation have not publicly commented on the lawsuit. On Saturday, Scott said he was “devastated” by the deadly chaos of his performance at the Astroworld Festival.

“My prayers go out to the families and all those affected by what happened at the Astroworld Festival presentation,” Scott said in a video statement.

Around 50,000 people turned out for the first night of the two-day event, but when the timer reached Scott’s performance, the crowd began to advance.

The eight people who died were said to be between 14 and 27 years old. The dead, according to family members, included a 14-year-old high school student; a 16-year-old girl who loved to dance; and a 21-year-old engineering student from the University of Dayton.

Survivors of the chaos said they were hit by the unbridled crowd, causing them to fear for their lives.

“Suddenly your ribs are being crushed. You have someone’s arm around your neck. You’re trying to breathe but you can’t, ”said Niaara Goods, 28, of New York, who told the Associated Press that she had to bite a man to get him to move so she could escape.

Goods also said that dozens of injured people had to be transferred with stretchers and wheelchairs after she reached safety.

Security also took the brunt of the chaos, with the Houston police chief saying a security officer had to receive Narcan after being stuck with a needle and fainting.

Scott has been criticized for continuing to perform after noticing someone fainted during the performance, as seen in videos posted on Twitter. In the video, Scott asks the crowd to back off as security personnel tend to the unconscious person.

The videos also show the crowd yelling, “Stop the show! Stop the show! “and one woman even approached a concert performer to try and stop the show.

Other Twitter users who said they were on the show criticized the handling of the event, citing the lack of sufficient security and trained medical personnel. Others blamed frenzied fans for their behavior.

Reality TV star Kylie Jenner, who is pregnant with Scott’s second child, responded to the tragic events on Sunday.

“I just want to make it clear that we were not aware of any deaths until the news came out after the show and in no world would she have continued filming or acting,” Jenner wrote on her Instagram stories.

She added, “My thoughts and prayers go out to all who lost their lives, were injured or were affected in any way by the events of yesterday.” He also expressed support “for Travis, who I know cares deeply about his fans and the Houston community.”

SZA, who also performed that night, said she was speechless by the deaths.

Scott said he supports the investigation into what happened to help find answers about the tragedy.

“I am committed to working together with the Houston community to heal and support families in need,” he said. “Thank you to the Houston Police Department, Fire Department and NRG Park for their immediate response and support.”

Individuals with information related to the deaths are asked to contact the Houston police.
