Over fourteen lawsuits have been filed since Travis Scott's set on November 5 when tragedy struck.
Travis Scott has offered to cover funeral expenses for those that passed away at the Astroworld festival tragedy after eight people died during his set.
The eight dead at the Houston Festival organised by Scott and Live Nation included two children aged fourteen and sixteen, respectively.
Although specific arrangements have not been announced, the Houston rapper will also refund all tickets sold for Astroworld as well as cover the funeral costs for the victim's families.
This news comes in the wake of over fourteen different lawsuits filed against Travis Scott, Live Nation and Drake, who made a guest appearance during Scott's set at Astroworld.
"The crowd began to compress towards the front of the stage, and that caused some panic, and it started causing some injuries," Houston Fire Chief Samuel Peña told reporters. "People began to fall out, become unconscious, and it created additional panic."
Police investigators are still determining what exactly caused the surge that led to the deaths and injuries during Scott's performance.
Drake released his first statement last night since Astroworld, writing on his Instagram that his "heart is broken for the families and friends of those who lost their lives and for anyone who is suffering.
I will continue to pray for all of them and will be of service in any way I can, May God be with you all."
