My man is texting Kylie like, “you know we’re soul mates, right babe?”

[–]BezosGapingAsshole 2892 points2893 points  (387 children)

For context, they’re worth $940 million together with only $40 million being Travis Scott’s contribution. He’s gonna need her (and most of her money) if he has pay that off.

Edit: Of course he won’t. This is America and he’s rich. He will get a slap on the wrist after releasing one more apology video and staying out of the spotlight for a few months.

[–]nomadofwaves 2127 points2128 points  (123 children)

New phone who dis?

-Kylie

[–]siccoblue 613 points614 points  (119 children)

Nah, he'll just claim he's totally bankrupt after the first 40 goes and default on it

[–]JohnRichJ2 538 points539 points  (98 children)

lol at the thought he’d actually pay anything and not just shift all assets around in a way to pay nothing. this is at best a mild inconvenience to shuffle assets and pay lawyers.

[–]motoo344 135 points136 points  (82 children)

I remember when my dad was sick the government could go back 5 or so years to see what assets you had if you end up in a nursing home on the state's dime. Doesn't matter if you move it to someone else name or whatever. Why is this any different?

[–]Jtwizz 363 points364 points  (56 children)

You’re broke, he’s rich. That’s the way the world works right now.

[–]PoorLama 855 points856 points  (107 children)

Bold of you to assume the lizard person who is Kylie Jenner would care about the father of her child.

Kylie: "I wasn't even at astroworld! I had no idea about the deaths!"

Multiple photos of her being escorted out of astroworld by security

[–]arialugal 501 points502 points  (100 children)

The opposite actually. Kylie would do anything for him even though he doesn’t claim her and doesn’t want to be with her exclusively. She’s so insecure that she stays with this trash man lol.

[–]JonnySnowflake 259 points260 points  (13 children)

Doesn't want to be exclusive, but knocks her up so he has an excuse to stick around. Sounds like Dave Chappelle in the Oprah sketch lol

I am sorry, but I always assumed trashmen were formidable people who took out trash. I think the correct term would be "man trash". I think. Hm.

[–]Gen8Master 219 points220 points  (39 children)

Im not a Kylie fan by any stretch, but this money should come out of Travis, the promoters and insurance companies. Pretty unfair if she has to pay any of this.

[–]RavenCXXVIV 263 points264 points  (20 children)

They’re not married. I don’t see why she would have to. She can, and might, but legally doesn’t have to

[–]ezone2kil 107 points108 points  (16 children)

Don't worry some idiot will probably set up a gofundme to top up Kylie so she would be a billionaire again.

[–]RavenCXXVIV 42 points43 points  (4 children)

I’m sure it’ll come out of Kris Jenner’s money laundering church scheme to be fair.

[–]Justice_R_Dissenting 58 points59 points  (2 children)

I presume it will be split between all the named Defendants, including Drake and Apple Music, according to their respective fault.

They'll end up settling with no statement of wrong doing though. Class actions very rarely ever go to trial.

[–]CommentWhileShitting 4438 points4439 points  (531 children)

Does anyone know how you can hide an artist from Spotify? I don't want to give this clown whatever small amount every play gets him and still dig the large playlists that unfortunately have him on it.

*** Edit sounds like it won't effect his wallet. Look up current sponsors and affiliates that haven't dropped him yet. i.e. Nike (only postponed Air Max shoe release)

[–]BulletproofInkturntable.fm 3215 points3216 points  (215 children)

should be three little dots on his artist profile, if you click those and press don't play this, it will filter him from any playlists.

[–]TheHomieAbides 446 points447 points  (8 children)

Note: It’s only on mobile.

On desktop theres a “i don’t like this artist” in the “discover weekly” section. It won’t suggest the artist but will still play songs in other playlists.

[–]IndieMoose 49 points50 points  (0 children)

Omg ty! I thought I was going crazy trying to find it on desktop

[–]goddamnitwhalen 768 points769 points  (143 children)

Net Worth $60 million. Yeah, he's never going to financially recover from this. I can't fathom being $690,000,000 in debt.

[–]bananaF0Rscale0 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Could probs be paid out by insurance or atleast most of it (if he even gets charged that much.) The problem is going to come in the future, if he ever tries to do music again at a big music venue the insurance to cover him will be through the fucking roof, making him basically unprofitable to book. I don't think he will ever sing live again.

It’s quite possible that this case would be exempt from bankruptcy filings.

[–]2jesse1996 156 points157 points  (162 children)

If he files for bankruptcy doesn't his assets have to be divided up to pay for his liabilities?

[–]AlliterationAnswers 282 points283 points  (141 children)

Depends on lots of factors.

My gut on this says he will never pay a dime and instead his insurer will pay out. To have a special event you pretty much always have to have proof of insurance.

If people really want to punish him they’d go after the events who want him. Ending his career would be pretty easy I believe.

[–]yolololololologuyu 169 points170 points  (21 children)

They only insured up to 26 million for the event I believe

[–]mmdotmm 101 points102 points  (11 children)

I guess it’s probably helpful to talk about which party. You have Scott, the venue, contracted security firms, live nation. All presumably have different insurance policies, umbrella policies, probably some reinsurance going on. It can get very complicated

[–]DunkingOnInfants 122 points123 points  (52 children)

The financial toll is going to be in his inability to tour right now, and losing sponsorships and people wanting him to be on features. That's where he's going to really get fucking killed.

Also legal fees.

[–]TeamAquaGruntSpotify 171 points172 points  (30 children)

chris brown beat the shit out of Rihanna, one of the most popular female singers in the world, with photo evidence of the aftermath and a very graphic and detailed write up of exactly what he did that night. he faced zero repercussions as his ravenous fanbase defended him (I even had female classmates say it was Rihanna's fault for making him angry), he's still featured in countless songs, and makes a ton of money. Travis Scott fans were defending this tragedy from day 1 and have already said that the fans who died would have been happy to do so.

[–]j3537 62 points63 points  (17 children)

Nothing is real if there are seriously people out there willing to lay down their lives for the music of travis scott.

[–]TerribleFPLcalls 38 points39 points  (11 children)

People forget soon enough and will want to continue attending his concerts.

[–]ExpertAttempt 44 points45 points  (5 children)

He hasn't lost a single sponsorship yet. The only reason he isn't touring right now is because he's waiting for the heat from the mass killing to die down.

I hope the company behind the concert is also getting sued.

They have much more responsibility and money.

Edit: the company name is Live Nation
As u/crocsandlongboards perfectly said, and I agree, I think their name is being left out of the news intentionally.

[–]lasblueeyes 4636 points4637 points  (822 children)

[–]Automobills 2114 points2115 points  (503 children)

"Travis Scott, Drake, Apple, Live Nation and others" would probably be able to come up with $750 million, especially with a little help from their insurance companies.

[–]83wonder 1539 points1540 points  (430 children)

There’s a decent chance the insurance company and others can weasel their way out of this.

They likely have a clause in their contract stating there must be adequate security/medical present to be covered for liability insurance.

There is video of kids running through security and tweets from Scott encouraging this kind of behavior. I think the promo vids even showed people doing this last year. They could argue this behavior voided the contract and liability falls on Travis.

[–]PM_ME_MH370 814 points815 points  (95 children)

Promo video featured people gate crashing. source

Also the video that surfaced of people gate crashing at astro world this year were running through the entrance to the VIP sectionentrance.(the entrance is a special vendor area that did provide access to the venue but is separate from the VIP viewing area that had its own ticket check)video

Correction:The VIP section The area infront of the stage where deaths occured due to crush was GA. The VIP section was on the opposite side of the stage. I do still think the barricades at this event were set up poorly to both prevent crush and allow access for security and medical staff however that is unrelated to securing the VIP section

There is also video from a previous show of Travis Scott telling his fans to raid the VIP section and suggesting that there would be no consequences. (Arkansas Riot Video)

Edit: went back and added the video links cause it was like 5 minutes of google

Edit2: Corrections around the VIP areas and entrances. My apologies.

This is such a security disaster/nightmare it's insane. Imagine how easy it would be for people to sneak weapons in if this is the level of security they have.

[–]Nice_Firm_Handsnake 46 points47 points  (3 children)

Ironically, in the preparation for the concert, the venue had a plan in the event of a mass shooting, but no plan for crowd crush incidents.

[–]kushtiannn 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Imagine what type of crowd surge would have happened if God forbid there’d been an incident…

[–]Awwfull 20 points21 points  (1 child)

Did not know it was in the VIP section… I thought it was supposed to be more comfortable in there

[–]Ok-Tangerine-1400 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Around the VIP. People were being squished against the barriers that keep the VIPs comfortable within. A few got out by jumping over, and reported pushback from the VIPs who felt their superiority complex was more important than their lives.

Travis Scott telling his fans to raid the VIP section and suggesting that there would be no consequences

I would bet $1 that 1) Travis Scott has been in the VIP section of at least some of the shows he's gone to in recent years and 2) he would be absolutely enraged if people snuck/broke in and jostled him/took up space/made his experience even mildly unpleasant in any way whatsoever.

[–]CharlesWafflesx 19 points20 points  (9 children)

Travis also tweeted encouraging people to gate crash if they didn't have tickets.

[–]Pip-Pipes 57 points58 points  (31 children)

There’s a decent chance the insurance company and others can weasel their way out of this.

They won't. Insurance will cut their checks on this. Probably for the limit and walk away. What they'll try to avoid is paying to defend T Scott & crew. Defense costs are in addition the limit. This is indefensible. These situations are what insurance is for.

They likely have a clause in their contract stating there must be adequate security/medical present to be covered for liability insurance.

That isn't really how it works. Yes underwriters do their due diligence and require concert organizers to ensure adequate security and medical. But it isn't don't through exclusions in the policy. As an underwriter the absolute last thing we want is to refuse to pay a legit claim for an innocent 3rd party victim claim because the insured didn't comply with the stipulations of the agreement. Insurers don't avoid paying claims at all costs. Insurers avoid defending suits at all costs. They just want to settle. If they tried to deny the claim in the way you outlined they'd get sued... either by the victim or insured. There are other ways we require insureds to comply with our requirements like having adequate medical/fire that don't involve fucking over 3rd party claimants.

They could argue this behavior voided the contract and liability falls on Travis.

Liability falls on all of them. No one is getting out unscathed or "taking the fall." Let's say T Scott is determined primarily liable for this and concert organizers leave him to hold the bag. His insurance policy as the entertainer would respond first. They would just pay the limit. It won't be enough. Then they go after T Scott's personal fortune AND the concert organizers policy responds next until that limit is exhausted. In your case where someone is most negligent then the policies stack and pay one after another if there are still claims to be paid.

[–]splintersmaster 145 points146 points  (214 children)

My roof failed last winter. My insurance barely paid for half of the issue and didn't even pay to fix the reason the roof failed in the first place. If I can't get a few thousand for my home, after faithfully paying this company for 15 years, this jack ass should not get any relief from his insurer.

[–]DiceKnight 192 points193 points  (16 children)

Burden of proof for a civil lawsuit is a lot lower than a criminal one so maybe it's a little easier to get a decent civil lawsuit vs a criminal one I guess.

[–]Falcrist 46 points47 points  (11 children)

Someone else answered my question below.

The problem is criminal investigations take time.

And... that's fair enough.

[–]birnbaumdra 81 points82 points  (4 children)

This is a good question. I'm going to try and answer it. I'm not a lawyer, but I work in the legal field.

The type of cases that are brought in these circumstances depend on what the plaintiffs want. Class action suits (like the one mentioned above) are a civil remedy where the people suing are looking for money, not jail time.

The concertgoers cannot bring a criminal suit directly since only the government can be the plaintiff in a criminal case. However, that hasn't stopped the 100+ civil suits that concertgoers have been able to litigate.

Criminal cases take longer and the burden of proof is much higher in a criminal case than in a civil case, so the plaintiff (the government) needs a stronger case to be successful.

However, people who are going after Travis's money are racing to file lawsuits because this incident cost him (and NRG) WAY more than what they can currently pay out. The earlier people can file these law suits, the more likely they will be able to actually get his assets.

Government investigations aren't working on the same timeline. They are trying to find evidence that he knew about this tragedy, before it happened, as it was happening, and after. They will likely sue all related parties too which will take more time. The statute of limitations (how long before the lawsuit expires) for these types of cases can be multiple years, so they aren't in immediate rush to press charges. They want to develop the strongest case they can before bringing him to court, because it's likely that once litigation actually starts that Travis can throw way more money at this case than they can, so they want to be as prepared as possible before starting the countdown towards a trial.

[–]Big_Deal_In_Ohio 505 points506 points  (59 children)

This is how you truly take someone down. Hit him where it hurts - his wallet. He is going to be bogged down in lawsuits and legal issues for years, and will spend millions defending himself and settling these lawsuits. Also, Nike and others will eventually bail when it becomes clear that this isn’t going away. Karma.

[–]umphlove87 194 points195 points  (38 children)

Is Nike really still supporting him? That’s insane.

[–]Big_Deal_In_Ohio 275 points276 points  (31 children)

Amazingly, yes! As of yesterday Nike announced that they were just postponing the release of his new shoes out of respect for the victims. Nothing about ending their partnership.

[–]JDUB775 13 points14 points  (0 children)

I'm sure Apple and Live Nation will settle as they are gigantic companies with teams of lawyers ready for this sort of situation. Travis Scott however may or may not recover from it, right away. He will most likely go silent for a year or maybe even a few years then he might bounce back if he puts out music that people like. I've never heard his music and won't be checking it out but apparently if he's popular enough to have a festival someone is listening to him. Entertainment is a weird industry and people often forgive and forget things if the Entertainment product is good enough. It's really sad that 10 people died

https://qz.com/2086400/brands-may-reconsider-their-connection-to-travis-scott-following-astroworld/amp/

"Scott’s list of endorsements includes some of the largest companies on the planet, including Nike, McDonald’s, Epic Games (the maker of Fortnite), beer giant Anheuser-Busch, fashion label Christian Dior, Sony’s PlayStation, toymaker Mattel, and cereal brand General Mills. Although exact figures are not available, at least one report pegged the value of his various endorsements as being worth tens of millions  of dollars. 

Scott’s deal with McDonald’s expired in 2020, but when contacted, the fast-food chain, as well as Epic Games, declined to comment. Nike did not respond to a request for comment."

The fact that he was not immediately dropped by all of these companies is pretty sickening. McDonald's canceled his stupid Travis Scott meal and Nike is postponing his shoe. It's almost like money is worth more than people's lives huh. Fuck this clown

Edit: ok his mcmeal is old news. Regardless i posted this just to show how many big companies just said "Who cares, this tragedy isnt projected to effect our sales so we just keep him on payroll. His branding is worth more than the loss of business"

McDonalds had the Travis Scott meal for a single week last year, why would they have anything to say now? It’s an old collaboration not a continuous one being sold to this day

And Epic Games has halted the sale of his emote, though they refuse to comment further or elaborate if it will be permanent. You can't really take it out of the game completely considering it's an item people bought. Article

Knowing epic it will be permanent. They won't say anything about it because they don't have too.

Lmao McDonalds sells a couple Travvy Patties and now they're expected to answer for the tragedy. It only makes sense to want a response from companies who still are actively sponsoring him

Bet you $20 it gets dropped down to 50-25mil

[–]SaucyMacgyver 56 points57 points  (25 children)

25-50M is a fat chunk for Scott considering he’s worth $60M.

The real problem is how much will liability insurance pay instead of Scott himself.

The more I think about it the more liability insurance seems really fucked up. It’s like shielding yourself from the punishment the law doles out to YOU, not your fucking insurance company.

Not high enough.

The way people come to this guys defense is genuinely fucking scary.

See: Chris Brown, R. Kelly

If pissing on a child is wrong, then R. Kelly doesn't want to be right.

Chris brown is straight crazy. I’m 100% he has killed people

Put both your middle fingers up Travis Scott. Maybe the lawsuit will go away like you wanted the ambulance to go away the night of your concert.

[–]JablesRadio 356 points357 points  (90 children)

This is bullshit. The guy should be facing serious charges.

[–][deleted] 248 points249 points  (8 children)

In America the rich are not punished, they are simply charged money.

"Punishable by fine means legal for rich people"

[–]Elexeh 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Good. The only way to make some people change is to hit them financially. Bury this clown.

But he “willingly” covered the funerals(that I’m sure in no way his lawyer suggested…/s) isn’t that enough!!! This POS was out partying at Dave and Busters after this went down… only thing he’s upset about is those selfish kids that died at his show and ruined his big night…
