Travis Scott has issued a release announcing that he will pay funeral expenses for the eight victims of a deadly crowd surge at his Astroworld Festival on November 5th.

Travis Scott has vowed to cover the funeral expenses of the eight people who were killed in a crowd surge at Astroworld. The rapper, performing at the time of the surge, faces multiple lawsuits from injured festivalgoers who claim he did not do enough to prevent the incident.

Representatives of Scott released a statement saying he is working with law enforcement to identify and connect with concertgoers. The statement describes the move as “the first of many steps Travis plans on taking as a part of his personal vow to assist those affected throughout their grieving and recovery process.”

Authorities confirmed at least eight deaths from the concert, two of whom were only teenagers, when the crowd began to push to the front. Issuing his own statement on Saturday, Scott said he was “absolutely devastated by what took place” at the festival, which he founded in 2018.

The rapper has been criticised by victims' family members, who say Scott did not do enough to protect attendees. Scott has faced criticism from victims' family members, who say Scott did not do enough to protect attendees.

The brother of one victim took to Facebook and wrote, “Travis Scott provoked these people and made them do just that and more he called people to the stage to jump into the crowd and did not stop the show. This is not the end; my family and I will go to the full extent to make sure he is brought to justice.

Scott is being sued by at least three concertgoers. In one suit, attendee Manuel Souza said his injuries “were the inevitable and predictable result of (the) defendants' conscious disregard of the extreme risks of harm to concertgoers that had been escalating since hours earlier. Eventually, due to defendants' active decision to let the show go on, the scene devolved into a complete melee, resulting in the needless, untimely death of at least eight people and injuries to scores of others,” the lawsuit added.

Houston authorities are investigating the incident.
