Travis Scott has reportedly offered to cover the funeral costs for the eight individuals who tragically died after being crushed by a stampede during his set at Astroworld on Friday, November 5.
Scott’s bold move comes after OK! reported the “goosebumps” rapper was slapped with eight different lawsuits. Kylie Jenner’s boyfriend —along with Live Nation and the organizers of Astroworld — have been hit with the suits as fans blame them for the injuries they suffered.
The “SICKO MODE” artist could be ordered to pony up millions in damages if he loses the court cases.
As OK! previously reported, Scott took the stage around 9 p.m. on Friday and the crowd of nearly 50,000 surged to the front, trampling individuals on their way. The mass chaos left 8 people dead, 23 people rushed to the hospital and over 300 treated at the on-site field hospital.
Prior to Stormi Webster’s dad’s performance, he was warned by authorities of the dangers that could arise with so many people being in attendance.
Houston’s Chief of Police Troy Finner visited Scott in his trailer and expressed concerns about the energy in the crowd and that people in attendance that day were "very devoted fans."
Following the horrific ordeal the rap legend took to social media to express his condolences for the lives lost and for those who were injured.
“I am absolutely devastated by what took place last night. My prayers go out to the families and all those impacted by what happened at Astroworld Festival,” he tweeted on Saturday, November 6. “Houston PD has my total support as they continue to look into the tragic loss of life.”
He continued: “I am committed to working together with the Houston community to heal and support the families in need. Thank you to Houston PD, Fire Department and NRG Park for their support. Love you all!”
