Scott, 30, was performing at the event when the over-packed crowd surged toward the stage, resulting in a stampede that left 8 dead and hundreds injured.

The rapper’s pregnant girlfriend Kylie Jenner, 24, was in attendance for the event with their 3-year-old daughter Stormi, when the concert continued on while the deadly chaos unfolded in the audience.

“Travis and Kylie have been sobbing on the phone to their teams and trying to figure out what happened,” a source close to the pair told the outlet.

“They found out after the show on Friday that people had died, but they were initially told it was someone injecting drugs and that a number of people went into cardiac arrest in the same spot,” the source continued.

However, the source claimed that Scott — who was using an earpiece to communicate with the crew — was never told to stop the show.

“The female fan who tried to get the cameraman’s attention was about 50 yards away, and nobody told Travis to pull the plug,” they said.
