“Sending everyone who has been affected all of my love and wishing them strength during this incredibly devastating and sensitive time,” she added.

Kylie, who’s pregnant with her second child with Travis, was the first of her sisters to speak out about the incident, sharing a statement on her Instagram Stories, where she also addressed the video at Astroworld that she posted and then deleted.

She cleared up speculation of her knowingly posting clips of the chaos at the festival, saying: “I want to make it clear we weren’t aware of any fatalities until the news came out after the show and in no world would have continued filming or performing.”

Travis Scott and guest performers including Drake are reportedly being sued by a concert-goer for $1million (£742,000) for negligence, with the fan claiming that the rappers helped to incite the crowd, according to TMZ.
