Travis Scott Names In $2 Billion In Damages From Astroworld
Recently the Astroworld tragedy claimed its ninth and tenth victims after two more victims passed away, including a ten-year-old child Ezra Blout who died from injuries sustained earlier this month.
The newest complaint was filed by attorney Thomas J Henry, Esq. on behalf of concertgoer Kristin Paredes.
“The defendants stood to make an exorbitant amount of money off this event, and they still chose to cut corners, cut costs, and put attendees at risk.” Henry said in a statement. “ My clients want to ensure the defendants are held responsible for their actions, and they want to send the message to all performers, event organizers, and promoters that what happened at Astroworld cannot happen again.’
