Travis Scott is being sued for allegedly encouraging a stampede at his performance at 2019's Rolling Loud festival.
Rolling Stone obtained an amended complaint document filed on May 10 by Marchelle Love which claims Scott “verbally and physically [inciticed] the crowd to engage in a mosh pit and other hazardous activities”.
The result of Scott reportedly inciting the crowd led to police orders ending his set early “due to the crowd becoming dangerous and uncontrollable”.
The documents of the lawsuit read: "Despite the fact that Travis Scott was aware of and could clearly see concertgoers being injured, suffocating, losing consciousness, fighting and being trampled, he continued his performance while authorities were forced to attempt to render aid to these injured concertgoers".
Love claims that Scott was negligent and should have understood the consequences of his actions would “result in foreseeable injury”.
Sequel Tour Solutions, LLC and SLS Consulting and LLC are also named as defendants in the lawsuit.
NME reports that Love, who also filled out the complaint on behalf of a minor child and guardian identified as U.M, suffered “severe injuries” that are “permanent in nature”.
These alleged injuries include: "bodily injury and resulting pain and suffering, disability, disfigurement, loss of capacity for the enjoyment of life, expense of hospitalisation, medical and nursing care treatment, loss of earnings, loss of ability to earn money, and aggravation of a previously existing condition".
However, representatives of Scott deny allegations to Rolling Stone, saying: "This is another blatant, cynical attempt to attack Travis. As even the complaint makes clear, this incident was related to a false report of a shooting mid-show, completely unrelated to Travis’s performance… This cheap opportunism is based on a blatant lie that’s easy to detect."
This comes amidst Scott facing multiple lawsuits from a catastrophic crowd crush at his Astroworld event in November.
Recently a woman sued Scott alleging she lost her pregnancy after being trampled during a crowd stampede.
Scott has also started a safety initiative called Project HEAL, a “multi-tier, long-term series of community-focused philanthropy and investment efforts".
