Travis Scott Covering Funeral Costs for Astroworld Victims

  /  11.08.2021

Travis Scott is stepping up in the wake of the tragedy at Astroworld.

The rapper has announced that he will cover any and all funeral costs for the eight people who lost their lives at his Houston music festival over the weekend.

According to TMZ, Travis will personally pay any associated costs and there will be no questions asked as it pertains to what the victims’ families might need in their time of mourning.

Additionally, Travis is partnering with BetterHelp to offer free mental health services to anyone who attended Astroworld, including one-on-one virtual therapy sessions with trained, licensed professionals. BetterHelp will also team up with the National Alliance of Mental Illness for those who need more than virtual services, and a hotline has been set up for attendees, which Travis will oversee.

About 50,000 people were at the sold-out festival at NRG Park, so it will take time and money to make sure those who want help can get it.

In an on-camera statement Saturday, Scott said he was “devastated” by the tragic events. “I could never imagine anything like this happening,” he said. “I just want to send out prayers to the ones that was lost last night… My fans really mean the world to me and I always just want to leave them with a positive experience.”

Several lawsuits have already been filed on behalf of concertgoers who say they were injured after a crowd surge occurred during the festival. Eight people died, ranging from ages 14 to 27, and hundreds more were injured. Two of the suits are seeking $1 million in damages.
