Astroworld Nightmare, Travis Scott & Drake Sued By 125 Victims

News

Travis Scott and Drake are now part of a $750 million lawsuit. Around 125 victims who went to the Astroworld Festival sued the rappers for the fatal incident that took place. On Friday, November 5, a crowd surge led to the deaths of 10 victims and hundreds of injuries. On Tuesday, November 17, a law firm filed a lawsuit on behalf of the 125 victims.

The Astroworld Festival made its return to Houston earlier this month. A deadly surge took place due to the massive size of the crowd. Axel Acosta was a 21-year-old who died from injuries sustained during Scott’s performance. Attorney Tony Buzbee referred to Acosta’s death as “needless” and as the “result of gross negligence.”

Travis Scott and Drake sued in the new lawsuit

Last week, there were conflicting reports about how many lawsuits have been filed as a result of the Astroworld tragedy. Travis Scott pledged to pay for the funeral expenses of the victims. Yet, he will have to pay up as the lawsuits keep growing. On Tuesday, People received the full details of the complaint.

“When Axel collapsed, he was trampled by those fighting to prevent themselves from being crushed,” the lawsuit claims. “As he lay there under a mass of humanity, dying, the music played and streamed on—for almost forty minutes.”

The complaint revealed that Axel Acosta was a huge fan of Travis Scott, Drake, and the other performers who attended the festival. The attorney claims that the rapper did not care about the well-being of the concertgoers. They blamed the “Sicko Mode” star and his team for the way they handled the incident.

“Axel Acosta loved and adored Travis Scott and the other performers at Astroworld—the feeling was not mutual; certainly, neither Travis Scott nor his exclusive partners, streaming service, record labels, handlers, entourage, managers, agents, hangers-on, promoters, organizers, or sponsors cared enough about Axel Acosta and the other concertgoers to make an even minimal effort to keep them safe.”

The complaint names other defendants, such as Apple Music, Epic Records, Live Nation, Scott’s Cactus Jack Records, and Tristar Sports & Entertainment Group.

Record companies will have to pay up

Travis Scott and Drake aren’t the only ones who have to pay up. In a statement to People, Buzbee’s attorney team feels that he “believes” that “Apple Music, Epic Records, and many other corporations that stood to profit from Astroworld will share legal blame in a court of law, in front of a Texas jury.”

The law firm will move forward with its plans to file an additional lawsuit “with another 100 named plaintiffs.” So far, 36 lawsuits have been filed against Travis Scott and the organizers, per the Houston Chronicle. Drake has also been named in the lawsuit. While he “does not have a prolific of a history inciting violence,” he still has “greatly benefitted from [Scott’s] ‘sick’ legacy,” the complaint alleges.
