Travis Scott is facing even more legal trouble for the Astroworld tragedy after an alleged attendee filed a wrongful death lawsuit for a heartbreaking reason. According to documents obtained by Rolling Stone, a woman named Shanazia Williamson is suing the rapper, among other defendants, for the death of her unborn child as a result of the trampling crowds at the music festival.
The lawsuit alleges that she was one of the attendees who were “trampled and crushed,” which resulted in “horrific injuries and ultimately the death of her and [her partner Jarawd Owens’] unborn child” (via ET). While the suit did not reveal how far along Williamson was in her pregnancy, she claims the defendants’ “failure to plan, design, manage, operate, staff, and supervise the event” is what caused her injuries and the death of her unborn baby and is suing for over $1 million in damages.
Aside from Williamson’s lawsuit, Scott is also facing a massive lawsuit representing about 2,800 alleged victims from the festival. The lawsuit combined at least 387 separate cases and claims that Scott as well as the festival’s organizers were “legally negligent” in the show’s planning, per Billboard. As of May 10, hundreds more attendees filed claims that they were also injured at Astroworld, making the total number of alleged victims 4,932, according to another Billboard report.
