Scott, who organized and headlined the annual music festival, sent "prayers" to the families and previously announced that he will pay all funeral expenses for those who died during the November 5 event held at Houston’s NRG Park.

Full refunds have also been promised to be issued to all attendees who purchased tickets to the event.

To date, nine people - ranging in age from 14 to 27 - have died and hundreds more were injured when the crowd of 50,000 were compressed towards the stage during Scott’s performance. A 9-year-old boy also suffered brain damage.

More than 100 people have filed lawsuits accusing Scott and promoter Live Nation of negligence in operating the Astroworld festival, which also featured Drake, Master P, Lil Baby, Roddy Rich, and SZA.

Attorneys Ben Crump and Alex Hilliard held a news conference Friday morning announcing the filing of nearly 100 lawsuits for Astroworld Festival victims. Earlier in the week, San Antonio lawyer Thomas J. Henry told CNN he now has over 100 clients who are part of the legal action.

The investigation is still ongoing and criminal charges have yet to be filed.

The 30-year-old Houston native, whose given name is Jacques Bermon Webster II, is also reportedly providing free one-on-one online therapy for those in need through BetterHelp, which offers counseling sessions with a licensed therapist for those who sign up on its website.
