The ‘Sicko Mode’ rapper has been named in most of the nearly 300 lawsuits filed in Harris County after the multiple deaths and injuries which took place at his festival last month.
However, Travis has now denied all the allegations set against him in 11 different lawsuits, with a representative for the rapper saying that he ‘is not legally liable’ for the tragedy, according to Rolling Stone.
His representative went on to say that Travis will likely file more dismissal requests.
This update comes after Live Nation and its subsidiary ScoreMore, Astroworld’s promoters, denied all the allegations set against them.
Information is still being gathered by Houston Police Department and claimants’ attorneys as part of the investigations into what went wrong at the festival, which will help them to reach a conclusion about who is most culpable.
This comes after it was reported that a US attorney filed a $2billion (£1.49billion) lawsuit against Travis, Drake, Live Nation and others over the Astroworld tragedy.
In light of the tragic events that took place at the festival, the boyfriend of Kylie Jenner offered to cover funeral costs for the victims who lost their lives.
However, half of the bereaved families have rejected Travis’ offer, including the family of 9-year-old Ezra Blount, who is believed to be the youngest victim of the tragedy.
