Following the Astroworld Festival tragedy, Travis Scott has hired attorney Daniel Petrocelli.
Having a practice experience of representing high-profile clients, including Donald Trump.
Heading Los Angeles-based law firm O’Melveny & Myers, Petro celli was appointed to represent Trump against fraud claims filed over Trump University real estate courses.
According to Revolt, Petrocelli sent letters out to the various lawyers representing the kin of those who died during Scott’s Astroworld Festival.
During an interview, he said that his client was devastated by the Astroworld tragedy and that he grieves for the families whose loved ones died or sustained injuries Speaking on behalf of Travis, lawyer Petrocelli promised Travis would settle funeral expenses for victims of the tragedy, including Mr. Blount’s son.
Extending financial aid to cater for funeral expenses was, however, not taken well by the families of the victims, especially the Blount family.
Losing a young kid during the tragedy is genuinely painfully. Regarding Scott’s offer, Blount, through his lawyer, rejected the proposal to cover funeral expenses.
Giving a statement, Bob Hilliard, representing Blount’s family, said that Scott faces a journey of pain and remorse ahead. According to Bob, Scott must face and hopefully see that he bears some of the responsibility for Astroworld tragedy.
Facing a lawsuit of $2 billion, Scott is being held responsible for the tragedy of fatalities and casualties. According to the lawsuit, Scott is accused of inciting the crowd into a frenzy and blames organizers for not considering safety concerns.
