Drake Gives Condolences To Lives Lost At Astroworld

Drake, who made a guest appearance with Travis Scott at Astroworld 2021 in Houston, has also been named in a lawsuit along with Travis Scott and Live Nation for “Negligence and Encouragement of Violence.”

Travis has promised to refund all Astroworld ticket buyers and he plans to cover the funeral costs of all lives lost at the festival as well. 

In his statement to the public, Drake said, “I’ve spent the past few days trying to wrap my mind around this devastating tragedy. I hate resorting to this platform to express an emotion as delicate as grief, but this is where I find myself. My heart is broken for the families and friends of those who lost their lives and for anyone who is suffering. I will continue to pray.”
