Original Story: Travis Scott
 has a set of million-dollar lawsuits on his hands as a result of the recent Astroworld tragedy.

As previously reported, misfortune struck Friday night (Nov. 5th) at Travis Scott‘s Astroworld Festival. At least eight people lost their lives at the Houston-based event, with the youngest reportedly being 14 years old. The deaths and various injuries were the results of a violent crowd surge inside the festival–which had approximately 50,000 people–during Travis Scotts set. You can hear one concertgoer’s account of the matter down below:

Shortly after the tragedy began making headlines, Travis Scott issued statements through Twitter and Instagram. The 30-year-old rapper’s IG Story upload on the matter particularly angered viewers, as many blasted it as being insincere.

Now, there has been an update on the matter. According to recent reports, two Astroworld Festival attendees have officially filed million-dollar lawsuits against Travis Scott and Live Nation Entertainment. It’s also worth pointing out that one of the lawsuits names Drake as well, with the plaintiff claiming he and Travis Scott helped incite violence within the crowd while performing. Both plaintiffs say they suffered injuries from the event, and one refers to the violence as “predictable and preventable.”

Additionally, news has recently come out that the chief of the Houston Police Department–Troy Finner–allegedly voiced his concerns to Travis Scott about the crowd before the rapper even took to the stage. It should be noted, however, that a police spokeswoman declined to comment on the matter–though she acknowledged that there’s an ongoing investigation into the entire tragedy.
