Travis Scott is now up to $2 billion in lawsuits.

Travis Scott is now up to $2 billion in lawsuits. Travis’ attorney, Edwin F. McPherson, tells TMZ … “There has been multiple finger-pointing, much of which has been by city officials, who have sent inconsistent messages and have backtracked from original statements… Houston Police Chief Troy Finner was quoted in the New York Times as saying, ‘You cannot just close when you got 50,000 and over 50,000 individuals. We have to worry about rioting, riots, when you have a group that’s that young.’ Yet, just a short time later, Chief Finner states the responsibility to stop the show falls on Travis.”

Travis’ lawyer rebuts “It was reported that the Operations Plan designated that only the festival director and executive producers have authority to stop the show, neither of which is part of Travis’s crew. This also runs afoul of HPD’s own previous actions when it shut down the power and sound at this very festival when the performance ran over 5 minutes back in 2019.”

What ever the outcome, we hope the victims can have closure. Ten people have lost their lives and there are countless injuries.
