Houston, Texas rapper Travis Scott can’t seem to get out of trouble as he has been hit with another lawsuit!

The newly issued lawsuit accuses Travis of allegedly encouraging a stampede during his Rolling Loud Festival appearance in 2019. 

According to NME, documents obtained by Rolling Stone, a complaint filed on May 10 by Marchelle Love accuses the “Sicko Mode” rapper of verbally and physically [inciting] the crowd to engage in a mosh pit and other hazardous activities”. 

Allegedly Travis had to follow police orders to end his set “due to the crowd becoming dangerous and uncontrollable”. Travis Scott did end his performance, but allegedly he continued to egg on the crowd.

Within the lawsuit, the suit claims the alleged encouragements caused the crowd to panic, and “multiple stampedes” continued.

Court documents read, “Despite the fact that Travis Scott was aware of and could clearly see concertgoers being injured, suffocating, losing consciousness, fighting and being trampled, he continued his performance while authorities were forced to attempt to render aid to these injured concertgoers.”

A representative for the rapper denied the allegations to Rolling Stone. “This is another blatant, cynical attempt to attack Travis. As even the complaint makes clear, this incident was related to a false report of a shooting mid-show, completely unrelated to Travis’s performance… This cheap opportunism is based on a blatant lie that’s easy to detect.”

Cousins, do you think Travis will ever shake back from these lawsuits?
