Manuel’s lawyer Steve Kherkher of the firm Kherkher Garcia, issued a statement to CelebHomes News on Sunday, Nov. 7, stating in part, “As proud residents of Houston, we are sickened by the devastating tragedy that took place on Friday night…[Travis Scott]The concert’s promoters and supporters must be held responsible for the obscene acts they performed.
Additionally, concertgoer Kristian Paredes also filed a lawsuit against Travis and Live Nation, in addition to Drake and Harris County Sports & Convention Corporation, citing negligence.
CelebHomes News has obtained the lawsuit. According to CelebHomes News Drake is alleged to have “came onstage alongside Travis Scott, and helped incite crowd,” then “the crowd became chaotic. A stampede began and eight people were killed and numerous others including Kristian Peredes were severely injured.”
Live Nation, ScoreMore, ASM Global, Harris County Sports & Convention Corporation and the NRG Stadium (where the show was held) did not immediately respond to CelebHomes News’ request for comment. Representatives for Travis and Drake also have yet to respond to CelebHomes News’ request for comment.
