Drake, Travis sued in 750 million dollars lawsuit by victims
Travis Scott and Drake are among those listed in a 750 million dollars lawsuit filed on November 16 on behalf of 125 'Astroworld Festival' victims, including the family of one man who died, by a Houston lawyer.
The lawsuit, filed by Houston attorney Tony Buzbee, is the first of many and it holds Travis and the concert organisers responsible for failing to properly arrange the performance, train security staff and manage a safe event.
The family of Axel Acosta, a 21-year-old who was reportedly crushed by an 'incited, unruly and out-of-control crowd with such force that he could no longer breathe', is among the plaintiffs, as per 'TMZ' reports. However, the complaint alleges that the staggering 750 million dollars will cover both physical and mental health problems, as well as the loss of life.
Attorney Buzbee said as per 'TMZ': "No amount of money will ever make these plaintiffs whole and no amount of money can restore human life. But the damages sought in this case attempts to fix, help or make up for the harms and losses suffered by these plaintiffs - nothing more and nothing less."
Travis and 'Live Nation' issued refunds to concertgoers nearly immediately.
Meanwhile, ten individuals have died because of the 'Astroworld Festival', the most recent being a nine-year-old kid. Law enforcement is still investigating what caused the fatalities, but audience members claim a mob crush confined, stomped and suffocated them. According to sources close to Travis, he was unaware of the severity of what was occurring in the audience while he was performing.
