There are clues that Keeping Up With the Kardashians alum Kylie Jenner might leave Travis Scott in the aftermath of the Astroworld tragedy. Travis has been under fire because of the mass casualties at his festival. The public is collectively grieving for the victims, and there is now an onslaught of lawsuits from families of the victims, as well as those injured at the festival. Kylie is openly supportive of Travis so far, but his personal brand has been tarnished, and she may choose to distance herself from the rapper in the future.
Travis and Kylie received intense backlash after night one of Astroworld resulted in eight ɗᥱαꚍɧs (a ninth person later ɗ𝔦ᥱd) and a host of injuries. Among the victims were a 16-year-old and a 14-year-old. It’s heartbreaking that these young people passed away, and “LaFlame’s” legal woes are mounting. Travis is already facing over $14 million in lawsuits, and that number is expected to rise as more people decide to sue. He has a history of inciting violence at his concerts, and prior incidents at his shows are the subject of public scrutiny. The rapper’s integrity and humanity are being questioned. Since Kylie is worth nearly $1 billion and is currently pregnant with her second child, the beauty mogul has a lot at stake when it comes to protecting her brand.
After the tragedy, Kylie released a statement via an Instagram Story, saying that she and Travis “weren’t aware of any fatalities until the news came out after the show.” Insiders say Kylie and Travis have been “sobbing” on the phone to their teams since learning about all of the victims, according to The Sun. There have been rumors that the Kar-Jenners are scrambling to protect their good names and businesses as Travis faces unprecedented criticism. Kylie and Kendall Jenner were both in attendance at the festival the night of the tragedy. It was said that cameras were there capturing the moment for the family’s new Hulu show. However, any footage that was allegedly taken will be pulled from the show, as per sources who spoke with Radar Online.
The Kar-Jenners are always known to do what’s best for their brands. With Travis’s reputation in tatters, his baby mama may decide that she needs to end their relationship. Kylie, who seems horrified by the Astroworld tragedy, may begin to see the downside of being connected to him. Additionally, there is the issue of money, as the “SICKO MODE” rapper is expected to lose a lot of cash due to lawsuits. He had to cancel the second day of his festival, and he has offered refunds to everyone who was there during the first day. He also pulled out of a festival performance he had scheduled for the following weekend. It’s not impossible that hundreds of lawsuits will be filed, with those who are suing looking for large amounts of money.
While insurance may cover any court damages, Travis, who is believed to be extremely wealthy, will likely lose some of his savings due to the Astroworld horror. It’ll be up to Kylie to decide if she still wants to remain in a relationship with someone that is public enemy number one right now. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians family has a new show on the way and doesn’t need any bad press tainting their brand. Travis might need to take a backseat for a while, as even the most sensible damage control plan may not save his reputation.
