Travis Scott’s Alleged Victim Speaks Out
The alleged victim, Mark, wouldn’t confirm if he intended to press charges or file a lawsuit against Travis Scott. Mark revealed that he was hospitalized after the alleged assault and couldn’t move his neck. He added that he felt tingles in his arm during an interview with Fox 5 News. “Obviously my neck is f–ked up,” he said. “My arm is tingling. I have pins and needles going down it.” However, he confirmed his discharge from the hospital and his clearance to return to work. Still, he said that he “can’t lift anything over five pounds.”
Mark explained that the incident began during Don Toliver’s set at a Manhattan nightclub. Travis Scott allegedly climbed into the DJ booth, though Mark noticed the distorted sound from the speakers. Mark explained that he tried to tell the rapper to turn down the volume, which is when Scott flipped him off. “So I lowered the monitor a little bit so I could talk to him, and that’s when he ran around the speaker and attacked me,” he alleged. He also claimed Scott’s security threatened his life. We’ll keep you posted on anymore updates surrounding the case.
