Drake and Travis Scott sued over Texas concert crush which killed eight people

Rappers Drake and Travis Scott have been sued for having “incited mayhem” after eight people were killed in a crush during a concert in Texas.

One plaintiff is 23-year-old Kristian Paredes who was severely injured at the concert on November 5th.

Approximately 50,000 people were in attendance at NRG Park in Houston when the crowd started pushing towards the stage as Travis Scott was performing.

Paredes said an immediate push came in the crowd at the front of the general admission section as Scott went on stage.

“The crowd became chaotic and a stampede began. Many begged security guards hired by Live Nation Entertainment for help, but were ignored.”

The lawsuit claims Scott had incited mayhem and chaos at prior events, and defendants knew, or should have known of Scott’s prior conduct.

The lawsuit further accuses Drake of contributing to causing the surge towards the stage.

“As Drake came onstage alongside Travis Scott he helped incite the crowd even though he knew of Travis Scott’s prior conduct,” the complaint says.

It continues to say that Drake continued to perform even as the crowd became out of control and the crowd mayhem continued.
