Nine-year-old Ezra Blunt has become the tenth person to die as a result of the Astroworld tragedy.
Ezra was attending the festival with his father, and has sadly died as a result of his injuries.
The family attorney, Ben Crump, said:
“The Blount family tonight is grieving the ultimate, incomprehensible loss of their precious young son. This should not have been the outcome of taking their son to a concert, a joyful celebration. Ezra’s death is absolutely heartbreaking. We are committed to seeking answers and justice for the Blount family. But tonight we stand in solidarity with the family, in grief, and in prayer.”
Meanwhile, lawsuits are mounting against Travis Scott and Drake after the Astroworld crowd surge tragedy that cost ten fans their lives, and leaving hundreds injured.
It has been announced that 68 people injured at the festival have joined a lawsuit against the two rappers.
Popular Texas attorney Thomas J Henry says he’s being contacted by victims ‘by the hour’ and has said just how expensive it could be for the rappers.
‘More and more injured victims are contacting my firm by the hour. While we are all still working to understand the full scope of the Astroworld tragedy, I believe the damages suffered by its victims could total in the billions.’
It is now being reported that, Travis Scott and Drawk reportedly attended an Astroworld after-party at Dave & Buster’s following the tragedy.
A source told TMZ that nobody told Travis Scott about the deaths, so he went about his usual business and went to the party, completely unaware that the tragedy had taken place.
Sources told TMZ:
“Travis didn’t know the severity of the situation when he arrived at the party, as far as timing, this remains consistent with the fact that no one including the police had publicly confirmed the gravity of the events that had taken place.”
The party was thrown by Drake, who joined Scott on stage at the festival earlier that night. Drake also had no idea that the tragedy had taken place.
