Travis Scott Hit With Over $2 Billion In Lawsuits In Aftermath Of Astroworld Concert
Paying homage to the demons during what many believe was a satanic ritual has backfired.
Rapper Travis Scott and Astroworld organizers are now facing billions of dollars in damages following the concert that claimed the lives of 10 people and injured hundreds.
Scott is being sued for $2 billion in one of several lawsuits waged against the performer who continued to sing as he watched his fans fall to the ground and get trampled.
On Thursday, San Antonio-based attorney Thomas Henry filed a massive $2 billion lawsuit on behalf of 300 victims that were injured during the show that left 10 people dead.
Having the public’s help in collecting evidence of this tragedy has been critically important.

Rapper Drake, Apple Music, Live Nation and Houston’s NRG Stadium are also named in the lawsuit.
“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,” said Henry in a Thursday 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.”
“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,” Henry said, adding victims also suffered emotionally. “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 hard. They couldn’t breathe. They couldn’t get out.”
Henry will likely file a suit on behalf of another 120 victims who have contacted his firm seeking representation for injuries and damages, according to the release.
On Tuesday, Houston attorney Tony Buzzbee filed a $750 million class-action lawsuit against Scott and Drake on behalf of 21-year-old Axel Acosta, who died during the Nov. 5 concert, and 125 concert attendees. Live Nation, Epic Records, Apple Music and other parties associated with the festival are also named in the complaint.
