Travis Scott and Drake are facing two massive lawsuits following the deadly crowd surge at Scott's Astroworld music festival in Houston.

On November 17, attorney Tony Buzbee of the Buzbee Law Firm filed a suit for $750 million on behalf of over 125 clients.

“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,” the complaint reads.

There are 10 recorded deaths from the festival, including nine-year-old Ezra and Bharti Shahani, who died a few days after Astroworld was shut down.

On November 18, powerhouse attorney Thomas J. Henry filed a second lawsuit on behalf of 282 clients seeking $2 billion in damages.

"The defendants stood to make an exorbitant amount of money off of this event, and they still chose to cut corners, cut costs, and put attendees at risk," a press release from Henry reads.

Both lawsuits name a slew of defendants including Travis Scott, Drake, Live Nation, the Harris County Sports & Convention Corporation, Apple Music, and other parties who profited from the event.

Astroworld was a massive tragedy, and it's important that the victims' families, as well as those traumatized by the crowd crush, receive necessary support.

Both the festival and its organizer, Live Nation, reportedly refunded all concert-goers for the price of the tickets, meaning that anyone who accepted the refund may not be eligible for further legal compensation.

"These defendants will no doubt argue that their exposure is limited to the price of the ticket, and, failing that, will attempt to force all concert goers — regardless of their age or adequate notice — into binding arbitration, so a jury trial can be avoided," Buzbee said.
