Update: Drake Dropped From Astroworld Festival Class Action Lawsuit

Update: (Apr. 11, 2024): Canadian rapper Drake has one less problem to worry about.

According to court documents obtained by TMZ, a judge recently dropped him from the Astroworld class action lawsuit. As previously reported, in 2021, he made a surprise appearance at Travis Scott’s Astroworld Festival. At some point during the event, things unfortunately turned tragic when a crowd crush ultimately left ten dead and hundreds of others injured. Reportedly, Drake was named in lawsuits as many argued his appearance played a hand in the chaos from the crowd.

However, Drake’s legal team claimed he shouldn’t be held responsible for the attendees’ safety and a judge has agreed, finally dismissing all the claims against him with prejudice.


Original Story: (Nov. 9, 2021): Drake is speaking out about the tragedy that happened over the weekend at Travis Scott’s Astroworld. Drake made a surprise appearance at the Houston festival where eight people died and many others were injured at the event. He wrote on social media,

“I’ve spent the past few days trying to wrap my mind around this devastating tragedy. I hate resorting to this platform to express an emotion as delicate as grief but this is where I find myself. My heart is broken for the families and friends of those who lost their lives and for anyone who is suffering. I will continue to pray for all of them, and will be of service in any way I can, May God be with you all.”


As previously reported, Travis Scott and Drake have been sued.

Travis Scott will refund tickets to the event and will cover funeral costs for those who died at the festival.
