Travis Scott Sued For Causing Fan’s Miscarriage

The lawsuits against Travis Scott are continuing to pile up following the fatal Astroworld Festival that took place in November – and they’re becoming more complicated. It was recently made public that one of the defendants suing him for wrongful death experienced a miscarriage after the festival.

According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Shanazia Williamson is arguing that the festival directly resulted in her pregnancy loss. She says she was trampled on during the crowd surge, and experience injuries to her “shoulder, back, chest, leg, stomach” in addition to other body parts.”

Shanazia’s legal team is arguing that a failure to take proper precautions and security measures resulted in the chaotic event, and subsequently her miscarriage. Travis is named in the lawsuit as well as Live Nation, Scoremore Holdings, and ASM Global.

“[There was a] failure to plan, design, manage, operate, staff, and supervise the event was a direct and proximate cause of Shanazia’s injuries and death of her and Jarawd’s (her partner) unborn child,” the court documents argue.

TMZ notes that Texas law allows for a wrongful death lawsuit to be filed on the basis of negligence, regardless of how far along the pregnancy was or if it was even viable.

Travis is facing a number of lawsuits related to the tragic festival. Reports suggest that the lawsuits are worth over $10 billion in total.

Travis first founded the Astroworld Festival in 2018, which takes place annually in his hometown of Houston, Texas. However, the 2021 took a tragic turn after the crowd started surging and causing panic. 10 people died because of the chaos, including several children, while hundreds of injuries were reported.

The festival’s organizers have been accused of negligence and not taking proper security measures. Travis has specifically come under fire for continuing to perform while the crowd surge occurred as well as attending an afterparty following the incident.

The rapper later released a statement expressing condolences to the lives lost. He also claimed he wasn’t aware of the severity of the tragedy until after his performance as well as the afterparty.

The lawsuits remain ongoing. However, Travis has already returned to the stage. Following several private performances (including one at a Coachella party), Travis performed a public set to a sold-out crowd for the first time since the Astroworld tragedy.

The concert took place at Miami’s E11EVEN Club, which was part of the Formula 1 Race Week celebration. He was also joined by Migos’ Quavo.
