Blount is one of the hundreds of people injured at the Astroworld festival. Eight people have also been confirmed dead. Several lawsuits have been filed over the deaths and injuries, including filings against Scott, Drake (who also performed at the concert), ASM Global, ScoreMore, Harris County Sports & Convention Corporation, and NRG Park. A spokesperson for ASM Global, Harris County Sports & Convention Corporation and NRG Park told E! News “we are unable to comment” due to pending litigation and ongoing investigations, and Live Nation and ScoreMore did not respond to E! News’ request for comment. E! News also reached out to Travis’ and Drake’s teams.
In a tweet shared on Nov. 6, Scott noted he’s “absolutely devastated” by the tragic event. “My prayers go out to the families and all those impacted by what happened at Astroworld Festival,” he wrote. “Houston PD has my total support as they continue to look into the tragic loss of life. I am committed to working together with the Houston community to heal and support the families in need. Thank you to Houston PD, Fire Department and NRG Park for their immediate response and support. Love You All.”
Drake also noted his “heart is broken for the families and friends of those who lost their lives and for anyone who is suffering.”
“I will continue to pray for all of them, and will be of service in any way I can,” he wrote on Instagram. “May God be with you all.”
