A fan is suing Travis Scott after he fell off a balcony during his concert in April of this year. The 23-year-old, Kyle Green, sued the rapper along with Bowery Presents for “severe personal injuries” which resulted in suffering, loss of earnings, emotional distress as well as medical expenses as reported by People Magazine.
A representative for Travis hasn’t responded yet. According to the documents obtained by the publication, Green’s injuries from the fall included a fractured back, right ankle, and a broken left wrist which left him in a wheelchair.
Green said to the New York Post that he was “in a lot of pain” and he just laid there until an ambulance came to grab him.
Green claimed that fans started leaping from the balcony in the crowd after Scott pressured them to jump. However, Green did not willingly jump; he claims that he was pushed from an unknown concert goer.
After Green fell to the ground, he was surrounded by security guards who picked him up, and he could hear Travis yelling at the guards from the stage to bring him up to where he was performing.
Additionally, Kyle stated that they didn’t put a neck brace on him or anything, but instead, they dropped him in front of the stage.
In the lawsuit, Kyle said the venue should’ve known that such a thing would happen considering Scott frequently inspires chaos at his events.
On the 13th of May, The rapper – who was nominated by the academy recently for a Grammy – was charged with inciting a riot during a performance in Rogers, Arkansas. According to officials, Travis encouraged audience members to “rush the stage.”
