W Magazine is reportedly trying to pull its upcoming issue featuring Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner following the Astroworld tragedy. According to Page Six, the two had a big interview with the magazine, which was completed before the November 5th concert.
A source said, “W editors have cleared any planned coverage of Travis and Kylie from their website, but the magazine was already printed, and now they are trying to stop the delivery trucks.”
The source added, “In the light of what happened at Astroworld, the interview and cover lines seem inappropriate, to say the least.”
Travis and Kylie have been staying at his $14 million Houston home since the tragedy.
While Scott has said he is “devastated” by the incident, his spokesperson insisted, “He was not responsible for this, but he wants to be responsible for the solution.”
TRAVIS FACING $750 MILLION LAWSUIT BY MORE THAN 125 FANS
Meanwhile, according to TMZ, Scott, Drake, Apple, Live Nation and others are facing a $750 million lawsuit bought against them by more than 125 fans, including the family of one who died at the festival.
The suit, filed by Houston attorney Tony Buzbee, is the first of others to come and places the blame on Travis and concert organizers for negligence in failing to properly plan the concert, train security personnel and host a safe event.
Among the plaintiffs is the family of Axel Acosta, a 21-year-old who was allegedly crushed by an “incited, unruly and out-of-control crowd with such force that he could no longer breathe.”
Buzbee said, “No amount of money will ever make these Plaintiffs whole; no amount of money can restore human life. But, the damages sought in this case attempts to fix, help, or make up for the harms and losses suffered by these Plaintiffs — nothing more and nothing less.”
Sources close to Travis have maintained he didn't realize the severity of what was happening in the crowd while he performed.
In related news, Astroworld medical staff has revealed that they treated 11 people with cardiac arrests at once. According to People, ParaDocs CEO Alex Pollak, the third-party medical company that ran operations at Astroworld Festival says his team faced what he called an “impossible feat” when treating victims at the deadly concert.
Pollak said, “This is something I’ll have nightmares about for the rest of my life. The team is extremely broken up about it. Seeing so many young people getting CPR at one time, it’s just something no one should have to go through. Even though we’re medical professionals, we should be used to it. You can’t get used to something like that.”
