Astroworld Tragedy: Travis Scott Hit With Another $2billion Lawsuit

A Texas-based attorney has filed a $2 billion lawsuit on behalf of 282 victims of the deadly Astroworld Festival, adding to the legal troubles faced by American singer Travis Scott and other parties involved in the deadly event.

“The defendants stood to make an exorbitant amount of money off this event, and they still chose to cut corners, cut costs, and put attendees at risk,” San Antonio-based attorney Thomas Henry disclosed in a news release.

“My clients want to ensure the defendants are held responsible for their actions, and they want to send the message to all performers, event organizers, and promoters that what happened at Astroworld cannot happen again,” he added.

The lawsuit is requesting for up to $2 billion in damages from a long list of defendants, including Scott, Drake, event organizers Live Nation, Apple Music and NRG Stadium.

In an interview with Hollywood Life last week, Henry disclosed that his clients range in age from teens to 40.

“They have injuries ranging from heart attacks, to heart issues, to brain injuries, to spinal injuries, to broken bones, broken legs, eye injuries, internal organ injuries, bruising and bleeding,” the high-powered lawyer told the outlet.

“Those who were injured are still very traumatized because they had to step over dead bodies. They didn’t have a choice because there was nowhere to move. These people were trapped. The crushing effect was so heavy and so hard. They couldn’t breathe. They couldn’t get out,” he told Hollywood Life.

The attorney also stated that his law firm is focusing on Travis and Drake in an attempt to get ahold of their cell phones.

“We already have started this process and are going to make sure that we get him and Drake’s cellphones because there are communication systems in play that will be in those cellphones,” he told the outlet.

“Every type of communication that he does, whether it be his audio, or his video, or his text messages, or his cellphone calls — we are going to make sure that they are all preserved,” Henry added.
