In an exclusive report, TMZ reported today that attorney Tony Buzbee filed a $750 million lawsuit on behalf of 125 Astroworld attendees, all of whom were injured and one of whom was killed. The suit names Travis Scott, Drake, Apple and Live Nation as the responsible parties, blaming them for “negligence in failing to properly plan the concert, train security personnel and host a safe event.”
The case claims that the $750 million in damages is to cover both physical and mental health injuries as well as the loss of life.
“No amount of money will ever make these Plaintiffs whole; no amount of money can restore human life,” Buzbee said. “But, the damages sought in this case attempt to fix, help or make up for the harms and losses suffered by these Plaintiffs – nothing more and nothing less.”
Buzbee also characterized Scott’s offer to refund concertgoers as a “transparent and grotesque effort…to limit liability, after the fact…”
10 people died as a result of the Astroworld Music Festival and hundreds more were injured. This lawsuit is one among many actions directed at Travis Scott and concert organizers, including a suit brought by civil rights attorney Ben Crump who is representing over 200 victims.
