On Monday, TMZ confirmed that the rapper intends to financially help the families of the victims who died at his concert.

During Travis' performance at his annual music festival on Friday, a deadly crowd surge towards the stage left eight attendees dead and over 300 injured.

Sources further revealed to the outlet that not only will Travis help cover any funeral costs, he also plans to reimburse all Astroworld Fest attendees.

Additionally, the 30-year-old has partnered with BetterHelp to offer free mental health services for anyone who is experiencing trauma from the event.

The latest development follows reports that Travis has been hit with multiple lawsuits from concertgoers who say they were injured at the concert. Per CBS News, there have been at least three lawsuits filed so far.

The SickoMode rapper, along with Drake and the entertainment company Live Nation, are named in the suits - two of which are seeking $1 million in damages.

One of the complaints, filed by plaintiff Kristian Paredes, claims that the company failed to provide adequate security and medical services at the festival. It further alleged that the rapper "had incited mayhem and chaos at prior events."

The suit also asserted that the surprise guest artist Drake "helped incite the crowd even though he knew of Scott' prior conduct and continued to perform on stage while the crowd mayhem continued."

Both Travis and Drake have yet to respond to the suits against them.

There is debate on when the organizers and artists were in communication about the event being declared a "mass casualty," and whether they allowed the performance to continue while knowing the circumstances were unsafe.
