Roddy Rich is stepping up to help those affected by the tragedy that occurred at Travis Scott‘s Astroworld Festival on Friday that left eight attendees dead and hundreds of others injured.
In an Instagram Story on Saturday, the “Late At Night” rapper announced, “Please have the families of those who we lost yesterday reach out. I’ll be donating my net compensation to the families of this incident #Pray4Houston.”
Scott also issued a statement on Saturday offering his full support to authorities and pledged his commitment to “working together with the Houston community to heal and support the families in need.”
As more information regarding the devastating events of Astroworld come out, so have the lawsuits.
Kherkher Garcia, LLP filed a lawsuit and announced in a Facebook post on Sunday, “We represent a concertgoer who was trampled by an uncontrolled crowd and seriously hurt.” According to court documents obtained by ABC News, they are representing Manuel Souza.
Renowed civil rights Attorney Ben Crump, who is already representing concertgoer Noah Gutierrez, is expected to be taking on more clients in the Astroworld aftermath.
Crump said in a statement Sunday night, “We are hearing horrific accounts of the terror and helplessness people experienced — the horror of a crushing crowd and the awful trauma of watching people die while trying unsuccessfully to save them.”
He added, “We will be pursuing justice for all our clients who were harmed in this tragic and preventable event.”
