A Texas-based attorney has filed a $2billion lawsuit against Travis Scott, Live Nation and others over the crowd surge tragedy at Astroworld. Thomas J. Henry filed the lawsuit against a long list of defendants, which also includes Drake, Apple Music and NRG Stadium, on behalf of the 282 people who hired Henry for representation.
“The defendants stood to make an exorbitant amount of money off of this event, and they still chose to cut corners, cut costs, and put attendees at risk,” Henry said in a statement. “My clients want to ensure the defendants are held responsible for their actions, and they want to send the message to all performers, event organisers, and promoters that what happened (at Astroworld) cannot happen again.” Ten people tragically died and hundreds more were injured by the crowd surge/crush at the Astroworld event that happened while Scott was onstage at Houston’s NRG Park on November 5.
