Travis Scott to cover funeral costs for victims killed in surge at Astroworld concert

HOUSTON — Rapper Travis Scott will cover all funeral costs for the eight victims killed Friday in a crowd-surge during his Astroworld Festival in Houston.

That’s according to a statement released Monday by a representative for the artist.

He will also partner with online therapy portal ‘Better-Help’ to provide free mental health services to those affected by the tragedy.

The statement also said Scott is communicating with Houston law enforcement and city officials to connect with victims’ families.

Scott, who was performing at the time the surge happened, was also an organizer of the event.
