Taking it all in!
Travis Scott was spotted for the first time since the Astroworld tragedy that left nine dead, many more injured and the rapper facing an avalanche of lawsuits.
Scott — real name Jacques Webster — appeared anxious as he paced back and forth outside his home while on a phone call on Wednesday, November 10. His lawyers showed up to the mansion and had a brief chat with the “goosebumps” crooner as the number of lawsuits against him has reached 68… and counting.
Fans are blaming Scott for not stopping the show as innocent bystanders were being crushed by the crowd surge, and Houston Police Chief Troy Finner is also pointing fingers at his production team.
During a press conference on Wednesday, Finner revealed the rapper’s production team was notified by police that CPT was being performed on concertgoers and they did nothing. “The ultimate authority to end a show is with production.. And the entertainer,” he said.
One of the “SICKO MODE” rapper’s attorney’s fired back at Finner, saying the “finger-pointing” needed to stop.
Following the horrific ordeal Stormi Webster’s dad took to social media to express his condolences. “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.”
