The fans are FED up!
Travis Scott’s fans have clearly had enough of him. A fan was so upset after the artist was over an hour late to his set for Osheaga Festival that she decided to sue the promotion company in charge of the event.
Scott was scheduled to hit the Quebec stage from 9:45 PM to 10:55 PM; however, he showed up a little past 11 PM and performed for 40 minutes. Megan Le Stum, the plaintiff in the case, is suing promoters Evenko for the price of her three-day pass, citing that she only bought the ticket because of headliner Travis Scott.
Le Stum also alleged that the show’s conditions became increasingly unsafe, as the crowd waited for the “Goosebumps” rapper. As read in her statement: “The crowd was euphoric to see the rapper for the last show of the day, however the spectacle didn’t start on time.”
When Travis eventually made his appearance, the set was crazy. Scroll to the end of this article to watch the video.
This is the second instance in which Travis Scott and a fan of his have been involved in a suit. After a fan was paralyzed during a spring 2017 concert, the concert-goer sued Scott around October of that same year. The fan, Kyle Green, alleged that he was shoved over the balcony railing during the New York City show, after Scott reportedly “encouraged [fans] to jump down into the crowd from an elevated platform.”
Green left the performance with a fractured back, fractured right ankle, and a broken left wrist. As a result, the left side of his body was paralyzed, confining him to a wheelchair.
The then-23-year-old’s legal team sited not only Scott but also Bowery Presents venue leaders, siting that their negligence lead to “severe personal injuries resulting in extreme pain and suffering, loss of earnings, emotional distress, and medical expenses.”
According to AllHipHop, “The plaintiff alleges building bosses should have been aware that the rapper ‘had incited mayhem and chaos at prior events,’ and should have done more to prevent the same happening at Terminal 5.”
Though Travis was slow to respond, he has now emerged with a lawsuit of his own. The “Sicko Mode” artist claims Bowery Presents’ security detail is at fault, and so he’s countersuing the security company.
According to new reports, Scott says Strike Force Protective Services staff are at fault for improperly removing the fan from the venue. More so, he added that Green himself “should have been aware of the dangers associated with attending a rap concert,” according to AllHipHop.
The rapper and his legal team have asked that the presiding judge either dismiss the case or award damages to be paid by Strike Force Protective Services.
