Travis Scott is being sued by a concertgoer who claims she was harmed due to a stampede at a 2019 music event.
A woman has sued Travis Scott, claiming she was hurt at the 2019 Rolling Loud concert in Miami.

According to the plaintiff, Marchelle Love, the Houston native, 31,'verbally and physically [incited] the crowd to engage in a mosh pit and other hazardous actions' at the performance at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida, on May 10.

Authorities advised the Grammy-nominated performer to conclude his act immediately after it began 'due to the audience becoming hazardous and unmanageable,' according to court documents filed by Love on behalf of a young kid.

The Escape Plan artist eventually ended the show, but his actions caused terror in the audience, culminating in "several stampedes," according to Love. Scott, she claimed, was careless in continuing his antics onstage despite the obvious turmoil that was happening in front of him, which would'result in foreseeable injury' to the audience.

''Despite the fact that Travis Scott was aware of and could clearly observe concertgoers getting hurt, choking, losing consciousness, fighting, and being crushed,' Love claimed.

Love said she is dealing with medical problems that are "permanent in nature" as a result of her "severe injuries" at the show, including "bodily injury and resulting pain and suffering, disability, disfigurement, loss of capacity for the enjoyment of life, expense of hospitalisation, medical and nursing care treatment, loss of earnings, loss of ability to earn money, and aggravation of a previously existing condition."

Love's lawsuit also names Sequel Tour Solutions, LLC and SLS Consulting, LLC, for which she is seeking a jury trial.

The new complaint, according to a spokeswoman for the Franchise rapper, is "another clear, cynical attempt to undermine Travis, in this case for a three-year-old incident that is purposely distorted."

'To be clear, this event was due to a false report of a shooting mid-show, and in images, the police were telling Travis of the show's cancellation for that reason - and he totally cooperated,' added the spokesperson.

"This cheap hit is based on an obvious lie that's easy to detect," the spokesman added, "and it's especially striking that this plaintiff's lawyer didn't even allege a claim against Travis when he first filed the case on behalf of his client more than two years ago."

Scott, whose real name is Jacques Webster, is also facing separate legal action more than six months after ten people died as a result of injuries sustained during a crowd surge at Houston's NRG Park on November 5, with victims ranging in age from nine to 27.

According to officials, 25 individuals were hospitalised as a result of the accident, with about 300 people treated for injuries at the event site. The event is still being investigated by the Houston Police Department and the FBI.
