Eight people have been confirmed dead after day one of Travis Scott‘s ‘Astroworld Festival,’ in Houston, Texas.

According to the Houston Fire Department, the eight confirmed deaths were a result of a crowd surge. 100,000 tickets were sold out within an hour of the Astroworld Festival tickets going on sale back in May. However, there were 500,000 people in attendance. Travis Scott stopped his 75-minute set when he noticed fans were in distress after the crowd began to compress the stage.

Around 9:30 pm, Medics began to perform CPR on victims who began to fall out from the crowd. Fire Chief Samuel Pena, Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo and Houston Police Chief Troy Finner confirmed during a press conference early Saturday morning (Nov. 6) that at least eight people were confirmed dead and 17 individuals were hospitalized. Eleven of those victims were in cardiac arrest during transport, according to KHOU 11.

“We got to grieve for these families right now,” Houston Police Chief Troy Finner said.” Everybody in our city pray for these families and we got to get through it.” 

In a statement, Astroworld Festival confirmed that the rest of the event has been canceled, adding its “hearts are with the Astroworld Festival family tonight – especially those we lost and their loved ones.”

UPDATE: Travis Scott has released a statement following the tragedy at Astroworld. “I’m absolutely devastated by what took place last night,” he wrote. “My prayers go out to the families and all those impacted by what happened at Astroworld Festival.”

“Houston PD has my total support as they continue to look into the tragic loss of life,” he continued. “I am committed to working together with the Houston community to heal and support the families in need. Thank you to Houston PD, Fire Department and NRG Park for their immediate response and support. Love You All.”

Diddy faces new legal challenges as he is implicated in yet another lawsuit, accused of sexual harassment, sexual assault, and illicit drugging by a producer who contributed to his recent album, The Love Album: Off the Grid.

In the legal filing, Rodney “Lil Rod” Jones alleges that he lived with Diddy from September 2022 to November 2023, during which Diddy coerced Jones into arranging sex workers, pressured him into unwelcome sexual acts, and provided spiked alcoholic beverages at his parties.

Seeking $30 million in damages, Jones lists Diddy’s son Justin, chief of staff Kristina Khorram, Universal Music Group CEO Sir Lucian Grainge, and former Motown Records CEO Ethiopia Habtemariam as co-defendants. Jones claims they collaborated in a “RICO enterprise” that failed to adequately oversee the actions of Diddy, his son, and his chief of staff.

Jones’ lawyer, Tyrone Blackburn, states, “Throughout his time with Mr. Combs, Mr. Jones witnessed, experienced, and endured many things that went far beyond his role as a Producer on the Love album,” emphasizing that Combs “required” constant recording.

Filed on Tuesday, Feb. 27, in the U.S District Court for the Southern District of New York, the 75-page lawsuit also involves City Girls’ Yung Miami, Diddy’s girlfriend at the time; detailing a sexual assault by Yung Miami’s female cousin in the presence of Combs and his staff.

Responding to the allegations, Diddy’s attorney, Shawn Holley, counters the claims as “pure fiction” and asserts that they have “overwhelming, indisputable proof of their lies.” “We will address these outlandish allegations in court and take all appropriate action against those who make them.”

This comes after a previous legal dispute initiated by Cassie, a former Bad Boy artist, in November, alleging control, rape, and prolonged abuse by Diddy over a decade. The parties settled within 24 hours of the filing.

Meek Mill has recently severed ties with Dreamchasers artist Vory following the emergence of a troubling video depicting Vory threatening his girlfriend with violence.

Vory, who has been associated with Dreamchasers since 2022, boasts an impressive musical portfolio with collaborations alongside prominent artists such as Kanye West on three tracks from ‘DONDA’ – ‘God Breathed,’ ‘Jonah,’ and ‘No Child Left Behind.’ He has also worked with Gunna, NAV and others. His debut album, ‘Lost Souls,’ was released in 2022.

Taking to Twitter, Meek Mill announced Vory being dropped from the Dreamchasers imprint, citing concerns about Vory’s mental state. Meek stated, “This guy is not a dream chaser! He has a mental problem! We cutting ties we don’t care how ya music sound.”


The decision came after Vory allegedly avoided Meek’s attempts at communication, with Meek expressing frustration over the situation. Meek emphasized, “He been ducking my calls for months telling people I’m threatening him… stopped alot of people dude he is not dreamchaser!”

In response, Vory’s ex-girlfriend addressed the incident on her Instagram Stories, accusing him of trying to tarnish her reputation. She revealed, “@Vory you are a disgusting person, you want to paint me out to be this ‘whore’ / bad person. When it’s you!! I don’t want to be with you or take your Valentine’s Day gift or spend time with you as a family because of all this shit you’ve put me through for TWO years so you go on social media and tell lies and try to spread this false narrative.”

Vory initially gained recognition in 2015 with his debut mixtape ‘Overdose‘ under the alias King Vory. The project featured collaborations with local talents such as Wuntayk Timmy and Bryson Tiller, along with Lil Bibby, A.D., and Johnny Cinco across its 18 tracks.
