Travis Scott has hired a lawyer who once defended Donald Trump to fight the huge lawsuits filed against him over the Astrowrold crowd surge injuries and deaths.
According to Billboard, Travis hired Daniel Petrocelli, the head of litigation at Los Angeles-based law firm O'Melveny & Myers LLP as well as Steve Brody and Sabrina Strong.
Petrocelli won an $8.5 million wrongful death lawsuit against O.J. Simpson on behalf of Ron Goldman's family in 1997. He also defended Donald Trump against his Trump University lawsuits as well as Harvey Weinstein against sexual assault allegations from Ashley Matthau in 2004. He's currently defending Kesha, the singer who has accused Dr. Luke of rape. The producer sued her for defamation.
Travis is facing lawsuits of over $3 billion. 10 people died during the festival and dozens more were injured. Travis has offered to pay for the funeral expenses of the deceased but this week, a family rejected his offer, calling it "insulting."
