#Roommates, as lawsuits related to the deadly Astroworld festival have now exceeded 100, a new lawsuit has been filed close to nearly $1 billion. According to new court documents, a $750 million lawsuit has been filed against Travis Scott, Drake, Live Nation, Apple Music and more, bringing the death toll after the Astroworld tragedy to 10.
NBCNews reports that the legal fallout from the Astroworld tragedy continues, with a staggering $750 million lawsuit filed on behalf of at least 125 Astroworld victims against Travis Scott, Drake, Live Nation, Apple Music and more. The lawsuit from Buzbee Law Firm, which also includes 21-year-old Axel Acosta who was tragically killed during the festival, says: “The victims that night went to Astroworld for fun. Neither they nor their families were warned that they were walking into a very dangerous situation. Acosta was so crushed by the agitated and turbulent crowd that he was so out of control he could no longer breathe. He had a cardiac arrest, then was trampled on. As he lay there under a crowd, dying, music was playing and flowing–for about forty minutes.”
In addition, the lawsuit officially alleges that Travis Scott (real name Jack Webster) intentionally kept the show even after local authorities announced significant losses in the event. The lawsuit states that “the Acosta family would prefer that Webster privately spend money on proper planning, adequate security and medical personnel prior to the concert, rather than publicly declaring that he would pay for the funerals of those who have been crushed and killed.”
Court documents also indicate that Travis Scott has an alleged history of encouraging violence and disorder in his shows, specifically telling his fans to ignore concert security and rush to the stage — allegations that circulated in the days after the Astroworld incident.
As previously mentioned, more than 100 lawsuits and counts have now been filed against Travis Scott and others affiliated with the Astroworld Festival, with the death toll unfortunately expected to rise.
