Travis Scott is urging all of those who were affected by the tragedy that took place during his Astroworld Festival to contact him directly.

According to Rolling Stone, the “Highest In The Room” emcee and his team released a new statement on Thursday (Nov. 11) with contact information for family members of those who were impacted by the festival to reach out to. “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. 

“He is distraught by the situation and desperately wishes to share his condolences and provide aid to them as soon as possible, but wants to remain respectful of each family’s wishes on how they’d best like to be connected,” the statement added.

Scott is asking the families to “please send an email to [email protected] where we will have a team on hand to assist.”

As REVOLT previously reported, nine people have died as a result of injuries they sustained during the Astroworld Festival. As Scott performed, the crowd of over 50,000 people surged toward the stage, causing people to be trampled and unable to breathe.

Following the disastrous event, Scott offered to cover funeral costs for all of those who were killed during the festival. He also offered to give free mental health counseling sessions to those who were affected by what happened.

So far, over 40 lawsuits have been filed accusing Scott, Live Nation and others of negligence. Famed attorney Benjamin Crump filed a suit on behalf of the family of 9-year-old Ezra Blount, who is currently fighting for his life in the hospital after being critically injured during the “Sicko Mode” rapper’s set. He has sustained lung, kidney and liver damage, in addition to swelling in the brain.
