Travis Scott Sued Over “Predictable and Preventable” Astroworld Tragedy That Left 8 Dead

Cool News

Manuel’s attorney, Steve Kherkher of the firm Kherkher Garcia, issued a statement to E! News on Sunday, Nov. 7, stating in part, “As proud residents of Houston, we are sickened by the devastating tragedy that took place on Friday night…[Travis Scott] and those who promoted and supported this concert must take responsibility for their heinous actions.”

Additionally, concertgoer Kristian Paredes also filed a lawsuit against Travis and Live Nation, in addition to Drake and Harris County Sports & Convention Corporation, citing negligence.

According to the lawsuit obtained by E! News, Drake allegedly “came on stage alongside Travis Scott and helped incite the crowd,” and “the crowd became chaotic and a stampede began leaving eight dead and dozens including Kristian Paredes severely injured.”

Live Nation, ScoreMore, ASM Global, Harris County Sports & Convention Corporation and the NRG Stadium (where the show was held) did not immediately respond to E! News’ request for comment. Representatives for Travis and Drake also have yet to respond to E! News’ request for comment.
