“I’ve always been that way,” she said within the clip. “There are plenty videos of me stopping my show to help my fans. There’s video of [Travis Scott] stopping the show. It’s just people are choosing whatever video they’re choosing to make it look like he’s not.”
Teyana continues, “I don’t get in the middle of all that stuff. At the end of the day, I seen a video of him stopping the show. I think it’s very important for all artists to take precautions to make sure. But also staffing, as well. It’s not just the artist. With Travis, he has large crowds, you know what I’m saying? We can’t expect him to see every single person.”

Always MISLEADING headlines”
