Travis Scott Makes Rare Appearance At L.A. Rams Game Following Backlash From Deadly Astroworld Festival
Travis Scott attended a football game on Monday night in one of his first appearances since the disastrous Astroworld Festival back in November.
As OK! reported, the 30-year-old was performing on stage at his concert in Houston, Tex., last year when the rowdy crowd surged the stage, leaving 10 fans dead and hundreds injured. As the backlash from the fatal event refuses to subside, the "SICKO MODE" rapper has been laying low while he deals with the hundreds of lawsuits lodged against him.
However, Scott was spotted making a rare appearance earlier this week, as he attended the L.A. Rams game on Monday, January 17, at the SoFi Stadium.
In the photos obtained by TMZ, the rap mogul was seen hanging out in one of the stadium's suites, where he kept things low-key with just a few friends towards the back of the room.
Scott's sighting at the game comes months after the deadly November 5th concert, which he maintained he would have stopped if he understood the severity of the situation at the time.
The "goosebumps" singer discussed the matter in a sit-down interview for the first time back in December, where he claimed he never heard the audience members who were screaming for help when the chaos broke out.

He also insisted he was depending on the professionals at the event to keep the concertgoers safe and that he was never instructed to stop his performance. However, Scott confessed he felt a responsibility to stop the same thing from happening again by determining exactly what went wrong.
"Fans come to the show to have a good experience, and I have a responsibility to figure out what happened here, I have a responsibility to figure out the solution," he explained in the interview, as OK! reported. "And hopefully this takes the first step into us artists you know, having more insight of what's going on."
Despite insisting he was not aware of any fatalities until way after the show, Scott — who is expecting his second child with girlfriend Kylie Jenner any day now — has been named in an avalanche of lawsuits alleging he bears some of the blame for the horrific incident.
In early December, his legal team filed a response to one of the lawsuits against him, requesting that it be dismissed on the basis he isn't legally responsible for the tragedy.
Scott reportedly issued a "general denial," meaning his one blanket response would be applied to all of the suits he's engrossed in. It is still unclear whether the cases will be consolidated into one.
