Following the Astroworld Festival tragedy that killed total of 10 people, Travis Scott, Drake and the event organizers are now facing a $2 billion lawsuit.
Tomas Henry, who is a Texas-based attorney, will be representing over 200 concert attendees. According to TMZ this will be the 5th lawsuit regarding the Astroworld tragedy.
The latest lawsuit mentions not only Travis Scott but also Drake, who was a guest performer at the show and every event organizer who might be in fault. The $2 Billion lawsuit claims that event organizers didn’t pay enough attention and where negligent towards the severity of the situation.
“The Defendants stood to make an exorbitant amount of money of this event, yet they chose to cut corners, cut costs, and put the festival attendees at risk” claims Tomas Henry. Continuing: “My clients want to ensure the defendants are held responsible for their actions, and they want to send the message to all performers, event organizers, and promoters that what happened at Astroworld cannot happen again.”
In an interview with Hollywood Live Henry said: “Those who were injured are still very traumatized because they had to step over dead bodies, they didn’t have a choice because there was nowhere to move. These people were trapped. The crushing effect was so heavy and so hard. They couldn’t breathe. They couldn’t get out.”
