The "goosebumps" rapper and the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star have both said they are "devastated" about the tragic Astroworld Fest incident that occurred on Friday night, and have reiterated neither of them knew about any fatalities until the news broke sometime after stopping the show.

As OK! previously reported, chaos broke out at the Houston music festival that led to at least 8 deaths, 23 being taken to the hospital, and hundreds more treated by medical staff on site.

Houston Fire Chief Samuel Peña told reporters in a press conference on Saturday that around 9 p.m. the crowd surged forward towards the stage and "began to compress" causing people to get crushed with nowhere to escape.

Despite videos circulating showing responders attempting to resuscitate unconscious concert goers and crowds chanting "stop the show", Scott claims he had no idea of the "severity" of the situation during his performance.

In a series of Instagram Stories, the "OUT WEST" artist appeared visibly upset, constantly running his hands over his face and through his hair as he gave fans an update on the tragic accident.

"My fans really mean the world to me," the 29-year-old said. "Anytime I could make out, you know, anything that’s going on, you know I stop the show and, you know, help them get the help they need."

"I could just never imagine the severity of the situation," Scott continued, adding, "I’m honestly just devastated and I could never imagine anything like this just happening."

"Travis and I are broken and devastated," the statement read. "My thoughts and prayers are with those who lost their lives, were injured or affected in anyway [sic] by yesterday's events. And also for Travis who I know cares deeply for his fans and the Houston community."

"I want to make it clear we weren't aware of any fatalities until the news came out after the show and in no world would have continued filming or performing. I am sending my deepest condolences to all the families during this difficult time," Jenner explained, adding again that she would be praying for those affected.
