Travis Scott has been accused of violating his gag order surrounding payouts of his Astroworld victims.
Attorneys representing some of the victims say Scott’s announcement earlier this month about Project HEAL, a $5 million initiative that includes funding for an effort to address safety challenges for festivals and large-scale events, may have violated the order.
“My team and I created Project HEAL to take much needed action towards supporting real solutions that make all events the safest spaces they can possibly be. I will always honor the victims of the Astroworld tragedy who remain in my heart forever,” Scott wrote on Instagram.
The attorney argues that his post violated the order but Stephen Brody, one of Scott’s attorneys, said his didn’t violate the gag order. Scott’s attorneys have argued that any efforts to prevent him from speaking on this or any other issue would violate his constitutional right of free expression.
Last week Scott performed for the first time since the 2021 Astroworld Festival, giving a short, private pre-Oscars house party in Bel Air, California.
