Astroworld tragedy: Travis Scott, Kylie Jenner ‘devastated,’ rapper in ‘constant state of shock
Ten concertgoers are confirmed to have died after the festival in Houston, Texas
EXCLUSIVE: Travis Scott is still reeling in the aftermath of the 2021 Astroworld tragedy in Houston, Texas, that left 10 dead, including a 9-year-old boy. Since the devastating incident, the rapper has been leaning on Kylie Jenner to get through the mourning phase of his own bereavement,
“Kylie has been devastated by the tragedy at Astroworld and has been doing everything she can to support Travis in all the emotions he is dealing with on a day-to-day basis,” a source said.
Throughout the investigation, Scott — whose real name is Jacques Bermon Webster — has been “in a state of shock” as he remains involved with ongoing efforts to stay in communication with the families of those affected by the incident.
Kylie knows how much performing and getting in front of his fans means to Travis, so to see him in a constant state of shock as the news and lawsuits continue to pile up is very difficult for both of them,” the insider relayed.
“For such an unprecedented outcome, they’re handling it as best they can,” the source pressed. “Kylie understands that the situation is much bigger than anything she could ever imagine — especially with so much loss of life — and she and Travis are just doing everything they can to be present for each other and all of those who are impacted by the events at Astroworld.”
ast week, a rep for Scott told Fox News Digital in a statement that he is still “actively exploring routes of connection” with families affected by the tragedy.
“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,” the statement read.
In a pair of videos shared by an attendee of that show, the “Love Galore” songstress can be seen encouraging the people working the venue to bring out water to the crowd after briefly stopping the show to check in on her fans.
“It’s like, somebody thinks, ‘Hey people pass out all the time, blah blah blah blah,’ but people don’t die at concerts all the time,” she said in an apparent reference to the Astroworld catastrophe. “That’s something that none of us should ever … We’ll never forget that.”
“Speechless about last night I’m actually in shock n don’t even know what to say .. just praying for everyone in Houston especially the families of those that lost their lives,” she wrote at the time.
Ten people died after sustaining injuries during a reported crowd surge at Astroworld. Scott was performing on stage at the time and has since faced criticism for allowing the show to continue while people were struggling in the crowd.
