Travis Scott Resurfaces Following Astroworld Tragedy

Travis Scott is finally outside.
Since the Astroworld tragedy, LaFlame has kept a low profile until now. According to a Reddit post, published on Wednesday (Nov. 24), Travis was spotted on Tuesday (Nov. 23) hanging out with actor Mark Wahlberg and Corey Gamble who is dating Kris Jenner, the mother of Kim Kardashian. The user shared an photo of the trio with the Houston rhymer looking pensive and deep into his thoughts, while Mark and Corey are having a discussion.
It’s unclear who snapped the picture but in the caption, it reads, “Yesterday, Travis was finally outside, hanging out with Micheal Jordan, Mark Wahlberg and Corey Gamble.” The user may have mistaken Corey for the Chicago basketball icon because MJ doesn’t appear in the photo.
Nevertheless, this is the first image of Travis since the fatal events at the 2021 Astroworld Festival at NRG Park on Nov. 5, which left 10 people dead and over 100 people injured after a crowd surge crushed fans at the front of the stage.
Currently, more than $3 billion worth of lawsuits have reportedly been filed against Travis, Live Nation and other parties connected to the devastating event. Most recently, two security guards filed a $1 million lawsuit against Travis and a security firm for their gross negligence at the festival.
In their suit, Samuel and Jackson Bush claim they are mentally and physically scarred following the tragic events after trying to help dozens of people escape the stampede. Samuel sustained injuries to his back and suffered a broken right hand during the mayhem.
Additionally, the suit alleges that AJ Melino and Associates, the security company that hired them, didn’t conduct proper background checks to ensure guards were equipped to handle the job and didn’t provide any training to deescalate large crowd eruptions.
For Travis’ part, the rapper’s spokesperson, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, told Gayle King on CBS Mornings on Nov. 12, that Travis didn’t have the authority to stop the Astroworld show.
“This notion that Travis had the ability to stop the concert is ludicrous,” she said. “They have a 59-page operations plan, and it clearly says the only two people that are…have the authority to stop the concert were the executive producer and the concert producer…[Travis] was not responsible for this, but he wants to be responsible for the solution.”
Rawlings-Blake added that Travis is grieving for the families who have lost loved ones at the festival and is doing everything that he can to help them.
