In a day that saw over 30 new lawsuits filed against Travis Scott and the organizers of Astroworld, now the event staff are filling out their own legal papers… including two security guards who say the event left them with permanent scars.
Samuel and Jackson bush say they were hired by AJ Melino and Associates to provide security for the event. The documents claim that even though only 50,000 people bought tickets, there were many more … and the massive crowds caused bigger problems.
Both men claim to have suffered mental and physical injuries as a result of the organization of the event. Jackson says he witnessed CPR performed on lifeless bodies and pulled one person out of a crush on the mob who eventually died.
The lawsuit seeks over $ 1 million in damages … and is suing not only Travis, but Live Nation, AJ Melino, Cactus Jack Records and others in the process.
As we pointed out, new deposits are only a fraction of what has already happened. Just last week, a A $ 2 billion lawsuit was filed on behalf of more than 280 participants … before that, another lawsuit for 750 million dollars was filed against Travis and others.
Cops continue to investigate exactly what went wrong, but on nearly every fan account overcrowding and crowd influxes seem to be to blame.
Travis has been out of sight of the public since the festival, and 10 people have died from injuries during the concert… he offered to pay the funeral expenses and create an account where families can connect with his team to make things right.
Travis’ lawyer, Ed McPherson tells us, “It was reported that the plan of operations designated that only the festival director and executive producers had the power to shut down the show, neither of whom were part of Travis’ team. also against HPD’s own previous actions when he shut down the power and sound at this festival even when the performance lasted more than 5 minutes in 2019. “
He continues: “Investigations should start to be finger pointing so that together we can identify exactly what happened and how we can prevent something like this from happening again.”
