Travis Scott Astroworld victim’s family files wrongful death lawsuit against rapper

Travis Scott

Travis Scott is now facing another case after the family of one of the Astroworld tragedy victims officially filed a wrongful lawsuit against him.

Nearly a week since the Astroworld Festival tragedy claimed the lives of eight people, Travis Scott continuously received a lawsuit following the incident. This time, the family of Madison Dubiski moved and submitted the case in pursuit of making the rapper held accountable.

The lawsuit includes Live Nation, Scoremore, ASM Global, Harris County Sports & Convention Corporation, Valle Services, and Scott’s company, Cactus Jack, as its defendants. Fox News confirmed that the family accuses Scott and the companies of negligence caused Dubiski’s untimely death.

According to the family lawyer, the tragedy was preventable. However, neither Scott nor his team did anything to ensure everyone’s safety at the venue.

“Madison’s family filed this lawsuit to make sure that the truth of what went so horrifically wrong at the Astroworld Festival is discovered. This lawsuit will make sure that those responsible are held fully accountable and that something like this never happens to another family,” the legal representative told the news outlet.

Dubiski was one of the eight victims who died after suffering from a heart attack or sleep deprivation. The other victims were John Hilgert, Franco Patino, Danish Baig, Brianna Rodriguez, Rudy Peña, Jacob E. Jurinek, and Axel Acosta.

Scott reveals his side regarding the Astroworld tragedy

Following the tragic event, the rapper shared a series of videos to his Instagram Story, saying he was devastated upon learning the news.

“We’re actually working right now to identify the families so we can help assist them through this tough time,” he said, “Any time I could make out, you know, anything that’s going on, you know, I just stopped my show and, you know, helped them get the help they need.”

He also disclosed he would pay for the funeral costs of the victims.

However, his statement somewhat contradicted what the authorities said about warning him. Houston police chief Troy Finner took to the department’s social media and revealed he talked to Scott before the music festival. He, reportedly, appeared before the rapper personally to meet him and the head of his security.

“I expressed my concerns regarding public safety and that in my 31 years of law enforcement experience I have never seen a time with more challenges facing citizens of all ages, to include a global pandemic and social tension throughout the nation,” he said.
