A week ago Travis Scott was simply a popular and rich rapper. Needless to say his life has changed a great deal since his Astro World music festival turned into a horrific scene of chaos and death.
Eight people lost their lives during a show that Scott didn’t even bother to stop as dead and dying fans were being taken out of the crowd. He’s provided a clinic on how to spectacularly fail at crisis management, and the lawsuits from the families of victims who died or were injured at his music festival are streaming in.
You might be wondering just what Scott’s net worth is, and how much in danger his fortune is in as his legal problems are only just beginning.
Reports estimate Scott has a net worth of $60 million. The liabilities he could be facing may very well run in the billions. Losing everything isn’t out of the realm of possibilities.
Fox News Digital shared a release that Scott’s legal reps distributed Thursday night.
“Over the last week, Travis Scott and his team have been actively exploring routes of connection with each and every family affected by the tragedy through the appropriate liaisons. He is distraught by the situation and desperately wishes to share his condolences and provide aid to them as soon as possible, but wants to remain respectful of each family’s wishes on how they’d best like to be connected.”
At the conclusion of the statement was an email address victims were urged to send messages to. [email protected]
I have a funny feeling a lot of lawyers are thankful for the heads up.
Watch for weeks and months of finger pointing and a world class blame game as the fallout continues from what turned out to be the definition of a senseless tragedy.
