Ten people were killed and thousands injured in the stampede at Scott’s concert at the Astroworld Music Festival in November 2021 – including 9-year-old Ezra Blount.

Ezra’s family sued Scott before the child died from his injuries, and others followed, leading to a slew of lawsuits.

After Scott was spotted in West Hollywood, California, driving his $5.5m Bugatti Veyron Chiron Super Sport, the family’s attorney says it’s simply not a good look calling the rapper’s luxury purchases ‘excessive.’

Bob Hillard, the attorney for the family told TMZ that Ezra would still be alive today, enjoying his summer, if Scott had spent half of what he paid for the Bugatti on simple safety measures at the deadly music festival.

But a spokesperson for Scott told TMZ that the car being referenced was bought in 2020 – before the Astroworld tragedy. 

‘This latest attempt to exploit Astroworld victims and gaslight the media and the public is a new low,’ the rep said. 

‘The car referenced was purchased way back in 2020 (well before the tragic events at Astroworld), and covered widely by the media — including TMZ — at that time. Misrepresenting a two-year-old car purchase to make an unprovoked and unjustified attack on Travis Scott is nothing more than another desperate publicity stunt to try to falsely blame Travis and intentionally manipulate public opinion, which won’t work.’

Travis is being named in multiple lawsuits stemming from Astroworld. It’s been reported that the total value of all the lawsuits is over $10 billion.
