Travis Scott has been named as a defendant in a lawsuit filed by a woman who claims she was hurt during a 2019 stampede at Rolling Loud in Miami.
Marchelle Love alleges that Scott ignored warnings from police to stop his concert due to concerns about the behavior of the crowd and continued to perform.
“Despite his being ordered by the authorities to cease his continued incitement of the crowd, Travis Scott continued to verbally and physically incite the crowd to engage in a mosh pit and other hazardous activities,” the lawsuit states.
The suit adds, “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.”
A statement by a spokesperson for the rapper, criticizing the suit, says, “This is another blatant, cynical attempt to attack Travis, in this instance for a 3-year-old incident that is deliberately misrepresented.”
Rolling Loud Fest, Dope Enterprise, and TCMZ LLC also were named in the lawsuit.
Scott is also facing numerous lawsuits over the Astroworld tragedy that took place on November 5, when fans surged toward the stage during his performance, killing 10 people, including a 9-year-old, and leaving hundreds injured.
