Travis Scott wild stage shows allegedly left a fan paralyzed.
Travis Scott's live shows are one of the factors of his appeal. However, one fan is allegedly suing the "Butterfly Effect" rapper after he was allegedly left paralyzed after a show at New York City's Terminal 5 venue.
New York Post reports Travis Scott is at the receiving end of a lawsuit after a New York City fan, Kyle Green, was allegedly pushed off of the balcony at one of his shows. The show got so out of control, that the young man was pushed off of the balcony and landed onto the ground.
“I fell and hit the floor. Before I knew it, I was surrounded by security guards, who scooped me up,” he said, “Travis Scott was yelling at his security guards to bring me to the stage."
Many may remember this particular event. The fan who's suing was the same fan that received a massive ring from Scott after falling, making it a widely viral moment. However, after he fell and guards picked him up, they allegedly dragged his limping body onto the stage. During the whole interaction, he said he was in a lot of pain and was just lying there until an ambulance finally came for him.
“They didn’t put a backboard or a neck brace on me or anything, they just kinda lifted me up and pulled me around,” Green said about the incident, “Then they dropped me in front of the stage.”
The show was already "packed in like sardines" according to Green, making it hard for people to even breathe. Scott allegedly incited fans to jump from the balcony and into the crowd.
Green's currently suffering from major injuries including a fractured vertebrae, a broken left wrist and fractured right ankle. He's now paralyzed on the left side of his body and has to get around in a wheelchair even after he underwent surgery.
Green's suit says the venue and the venue's security guards should have been aware of Scott's history of live performance. It says Scott "had incited mayhem and chaos at prior events."
At this point, Scott nor the venue have made comments on the lawsuit.
