In his first legal response to the lawsuits filed against him following last month's tragedy at Astroworld, Travis Scott has requested for the lawsuits he's named in to be dismissed.
10 people have lost their lives and hundreds others were injured after the crowd surged forward during Travis Scott's headline set at Astroworld 2021 last month, resulting in Travis Scott, Drake, Apple and Live Nation being named in lawsuits.
Rolling Stone reports that the rapper has denied every allegation against him in 11 separate lawsuits, and is likely to file more requests for dismissal in the future. Scott is reportedly named in nearly 300 lawsuits filed in Harris County.
According to Rolling Stone, the representative reiterated that the rapper "is not legally liable" for the tragedy at Astroworld.
It's also been reported that Live Nation and Astroworld promoters ScoreMore denied all allegations, but didn't request to have the lawsuits dismissed.
Variety reports that lawyers are currently working on combining the lawsuits against the rapper and Astroworld organisers into one case (there's approximately 275 separate cases at the moment), which would include around 1,250 plaintiffs.
