Last year in November, Travis Scott hosted a music festival that quickly turned into a fatal tragedy. Since then, he has been hit with hundreds of lawsuits and is blamed for failing to do something to prevent the deaths and injuries.

The Astroworld festival in Houston, Texas was supposed to be one of the most exciting music events of 2021. Instead it turned into one of the deadliest festivals the country has ever seen. 10 people died who attended the event; eight of them died the night of the festival from being trampled to death, and days later, two more died from injuries they received. Both Travis Scott and Live Nation were hit with 387 individually filed lawsuits from more than 2,800 people.

Shanazia Williamson and her husband Jarawd Owens have filed a lawsuit against Scott, Live Nation, Scoremore, Valle Services SMG, ASM Global, and the Harris County Sports and Convention Corporation because of the miscarriage Williamson suffered after attending Astroworld. They are alleging that the injuries caused by the trampling resulted in the untimely death of their baby; unfortunately, Williamson miscarried shortly after the festival.

"While in attendance at the festival, Shanazia was trampled and crushed resulting in horrific injuries and ultimately the death of her and Jarawd’s unborn child," the lawsuit read. "In addition, Shanazia sustained injuries to her shoulder, back, leg, chest, stomach and other parts of her body."

“Defendants’ 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 unborn child,” it read. The suit also cited inadequate security and medical personnel as well as failing to pay attention to safety hazards.

In the state of Texas, according to the Civil Practice and Remedies code, an unborn baby can be claimed as a wrongful death from the moment of fertilization.

Travis Scott has been silent on the matter for the last few months, and he has yet to offer a response to this particular lawsuit.
