Travis Scott and his team were unaware of the massive crowd casualties at his show as it continued to perform, said his lawyer, who claims rescuers never relayed the message … and Travis did not know the scope of what happened until the next day.
Ed McPherson was on ‘GMA’ on Friday, saying there was still a long way to go to investigate exactly what was wrong last week, but he insists his client was in the dark.
McPherson says Travis had no idea of the calamity in the crowd because he had an earpiece screaming music, blinding lights and no one had warned him. As we reported, Travis even left after the gig and contacted Dave & Busters for a after the party … unaware that people had died and hundreds were injured.
McPherson points to the now viral video of Travis stopping the show to get help from a fan who had passed out. He also says it was difficult for Travis to determine that at one point there was an ambulance in the crowd… saying it looked more like a golf cart with lights on.
When asked whether or not Travis is getting his audience to get aggressive by telling them to “rage” – a phrase he has used for years – McPherson says Travis was just trying to get his audience into the show and to have a good time.
TMZ broke history, Houston cops were seen take photos and videos while Travis played 25 minutes after the event was deemed a “multiple casualty event”. McPherson says this is further proof that Travis had no idea what was going on. The lawyer points out that if the cops didn’t know … how could Travis?
Thursday, 22 years old Bharti shahani succumbed to her injuries sustained during the show, she was reportedly trampled in a crowd crush, suffering from multiple heart attacks and declared brain dead.
Bharti is the 9th victim of the Astroworld Festival.
