Woman claiming to be pregnant sues Travis Scott at Astroworld

A woman is suing rapper Travis Scott, claiming he lost her pregnancy when he crushed her at his disastrous Astroworld concert in November, it revealed Thursday.

According to a wrongful death lawsuit cited by Rolling Stone magazine, Shanazia Williamson of Dayton, Ohio, and her husband, Jarrod Owens, were expecting a baby—until a stampede of fans at the festival in Houston, Tex. Not “crushed” given.

“While attending the festival, Shanazia was crushed and crushed, resulting in grievous injuries and ultimately the death of her and Jarvad’s unborn child,” the suit said. “In addition, Shanazia suffered injuries to her shoulders, back, legs, chest, abdomen and other parts of the body.”

The lawsuit claims that the concert’s promoters, Live Nation and Scoremore, had insufficient security and failed to stop the massive crowd, which left ten dead and hundreds injured.

According to the lawsuit filed in December, “the defendants’ failure to plan, design, manage, operate, staff and monitor the incident was a direct and immediate cause of Shanazia’s injuries and the deaths of her and Jarvad’s unborn child.”

The outlet reported that the couple claims Scott and the promoter were “reckless” because they failed to set up medical personnel and recognize the festival’s safety hazards.

Security companies Vale Services SMG, ASM Global and Harris County Sports and Convention Corporation were also named as defendants in the lawsuit.

The organizers of the concert have come under intense scrutiny in recent months and are facing several other lawsuits over their alleged failure to stop the performance while attendees were shouting for help.

In all, more than 300 people were injured and 25 were hospitalised.

The couple’s attorneys, Jason Itkin and Kurt Arnold, declined to comment on the case, citing the gag order.

Scott and reps for Live Nation did not immediately return the Post’s request for comment on Thursday.
