Putting fatherhood first! Travis Scott is being sued for skipping a performance that was scheduled two days after Kylie Jenner gave birth to their daughter Stormi Webster. A promoter is now suing the new father for the cancellation — claiming Travis got a six-figure advance he never paid back.
According to documents obtained by The Blast, the “Goosebumps” rapper was paid $150,000 of his $200,000 fee to perform at the Myth Live in Minnesota for a pre-Super Bowl show on Feb. 3. However, Travis “refused to show up to the event” despite the promoter arranging for a private jet to fly him to the venue.
As fans of the couple will remember, Kylie and Travis announced the birth of their daughter on Super Bowl Sunday, but Travis claimed weather was the reason for the cancelation. (Her name is Stormi, so technically he wasn’t lying). Now, not only does the promoter want his money back, he is also seeking the “significant sums Plaintiff paid to advertise the event, lease a large entertainment venue and to hire a staff of waiters, bartenders and other assistants for the night.”
The documents are also claiming Travis inflicted “reputational harm” by failing to perform. This is the latest lawsuit for the hip-hop star. Last October, he was sued by a concertgoer who alleges he was pushed off a balcony during the rapper’s NYC show, suffering significant injuries that left him paralyzed.
“I fell and hit the floor. Before I knew it, I was surrounded by security guards, who scooped me up,” fan Kyle Green told The New York Post. “Travis Scott was yelling at his security guards to bring me to the stage. They didn’t put a backboard or a neck brace on me or anything, they just kinda lifted me up and pulled me around. Then they dropped me in front of the stage.”
Travis, 25, has also pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct after inciting a riot at his show in Arkansas last May. Maybe it’s best that Travis didn’t perform…
