Travis Scott, Drake And Live Nation Being Sued For Astroworld Incident
A concert-goer at Travis Scott’s popular music festival Astroworld is suing the rapper and producer following a deadly crowd surge on the first day of the festival.
In what might be the first lawsuit of many, attendee Manuel Souza is suing Scott, Cactus Jack Records, Drake, Live Nation and others for $1 million dollars. The lawsuit claims this tragic event was predictable and organizers “made the conscious decision to let the show go on, despite the extreme risk of harm to concertgoers that was escalating by the moment.” Souza himself suffered multiple injuries as he was trampled by the crowd.
Travis Scott has since put out a statement and is facing backlash from claims that say he continued the show despite the signs from the crowd that something was wrong.
