Travis Scott and Drake have found themselves in hot water.
For, the ‘Sicko Mode’ collaborators are now being sued.
More details below…
According to CBS News, a civil suit by plaintiff Kristian Paredes blames Scott and Drake for negligently inciting “a riot and violence.” The suit is seeking $1 million in damages and goes on to claim that Live Nation failed to provide adequate security and medical services.
Additionally, Benjamin Crump has filed a lawsuit on behalf of 21-year-old Noah Gutierrez and will soon follow with others. Speaking on his lawsuit, he said:
“We are hearing horrific accounts of the terror and helplessness people experienced — the horror of a crushing crowd and the awful trauma of watching people die while trying unsuccessfully to save them. We will be pursuing justice for all our clients who were harmed in this tragic and preventable event.”
Moreover, a third lawsuit has been filed on behalf of Manuel Souza, who also names Scott and Live Nation as well as Scoremore as defendants. Souza claims he “suffered serious bodily injuries when the uncontrolled crowd at the concert knocked him to the ground and trampled him.”
Scott has gone on record saying that he is “devastated” by the events that occurred during his Astroworld festival.
Eight people have died and hundreds more were injured during the festival. Scott will be providing refunds for those who intended to see the remaining shows.
