5 is being sued for (dollar)2 billion.
According to TMZ, Thomas Henry is representing 280 plaintiffs in a lawsuit against Scott, Drake, Live Nation, NRG Stadium, and others.
The lawsuit claims that during Scott’s performance, fans were “incited into a frenzy,” resulting in a deadly stampede towards the stage.
The lawsuit claims that festival organizers failed to take the necessary precautions to ensure concertgoers’ safety.
“The Defendants stood to make an exorbitant amount of money from this event, yet they chose to cut corners, cut costs, and put the festival attendees in danger,” according to the filing, which explains the (dollar)2 billion asking price.
Ezra Blount, the 9-year-old boy injured at the Astroworld music festival, died as a result of his injuries, according to his family’s attorney.
Ezra was placed in a medically-induced coma last week after suffering severe brain, liver, and kidney trauma. He was the tenth victim of a deadly crowd surge that also left over 300 people injured, including 25 hospitalized.
Blount’s family has filed a negligence lawsuit against Scott and the organizers.
In a statement to CBS News, the Blount family attorneys said, “The Blount family tonight is grieving the ultimate, incomprehensible loss of their precious young son.”
“Taking their son to a concert, a joyful celebration, should not have resulted in this.”
Ezra’s death is incredibly tragic.
We are dedicated to finding answers and bringing justice to the Blount family.
But tonight, we stand in mourning and prayer with the family.”
On November 5, Houston mayor Sylvester Turner tweeted, “I am saddened to learn of Ezra’s death this evening.”
“Our city is praying for his mother, father, grandparents, other family members, and classmates right now.”
In the months and years ahead, they will require all of our help.
May God provide them with the resources they require.
“Rest in peace, Ezra.”
Despite Scott’s apology and promise to cover the victims’ funeral costs, he and his festival partners are already facing multiple lawsuits.
Ezra’s family accused Scott and the organizers of “grossly negligent conduct” that led to Ezra’s injuries, according to their complaint.
Ezra was “kicked, stepped on, and trampled,” according to the Bible.
