Kim Kardashian say she’s ‘heartbroken’ & Travis Scott is ‘truly devastated’ after Astroworld tragedy where 8 people died

11/09/2021

KIM Kardashian has spoken out about the Astroworld tragedy where eight fans were killed Friday night while Travis Scott was performing.

Kim, 41, took to Instagram with a statement on Monday after much of the Kardashian-Jenner clan were slammed for saying nothing about the incident.


Kim, whose sister Kylie is expecting her second child with Travis, wrote: "Absolutely heartbroken for the lives who were lost and anyone who was hurt at Astroworld.

"Just like all of you, our family is in shock by the tragedy, we are keeping all of the victims, families and loved ones impacted in our prayers for healing – as well as Travis who we know cares so much about his fans and is truly devastated."

Eight people died and hundreds were injured in a horrifying stampede at NRG Park on Friday evening.

Officials in Texas said the crowd began to "compress towards the front of the stage" at around 9.15pm, sparking panic.

On Monday it emerged that Scott played for more than 30 minutes after his Astroworld festival was declared a mass casualty incident.

Houston Fire Chief Samuel Peña said the event was declared a "mass casualty" at 9:38pm.

The New York Times and The Houston Chronicle say Scott was still on stage at 10:15pm. Reuters report 10:10pm.

Scott had briefly stopped the show at 9:42pm, calling for help for a concertgoer who had passed out. He then resumed the show, Insider reports.

Despite the devastating event, several members of the KUWTK clan failed to acknowledge the innocent deaths.

Kourtney was slammed for promoting her lifestyle website Poosh on Instagram just hours later.

And Khloe was blasted for sharing sexy selfies with no mention of the incident.

MASS CASUALTY INCIDENT

Travis' girlfriend Kylie Jenner said they did not know what had happened while her partner performed.

She wrote: "I want to make it clear we weren't aware of any fatalities until the news came out after the show and in no world would have continued filming or performing."

Footage posted online shows fans screaming for help, with one concert-goer yelling: "There is someone dead in there." Other chant: "Stop the Show."

It is not clear if officials could hear those pleas. There have been no arrests in connection with the incident.

Victims of the tragedy include 21-year-old student Axel Acosta and schoolboy John Hilgert, who was just 14.

Student Franco Patiño, 21, Danish Baig, 27, Brianna Rodriguez, 16, Jacob Jurinek, Madison Dubiski, 23,  and Rudy Peña, 23, are also among the victims.

Travis, Drake, and Astroworld festival organizers Live Nation are now reportedly being sued for damages following the fatal tragedy.

After the horrifying night, Travis took to Instagram to tell his fans of his shock.

He said: "My fans mean the world to me, and I always want to leave them with a positive experience.

"If at any time I could make out anything that was going on, I would stop the show and help them get the help they need, you know. I just could never imagine this […] situation."
