Travis Scott is wanted by the NYPD for the presumed assaulting nightclub staff. The rapper it would have punched the sound engineer during a DJ set, causing $12,000 in damage to equipment.
US rapper Travis Scott is wanted for questioning by the New York police following reports of an assault and damage to a nightclub in the city.
A sound engineer at Club Nebula claims Scott punched him in the face following an argument early Wednesday morning. Scott would also have caused damages for 12 thousand dollars to a loudspeaker and a video screen. Police officers attended the scene.
Scott had DJed in the club, for a labelmate’s concert afterparty Don Toliver.
The statements released by Scott’s spokesman did not deny the incident, but the managing partner of the venue, Richie Romero, stated that the incident was “wholly disproportionately exaggerated”. Scott’s attorney, Mitchell Schuster, he called early reports of the incident “clickbait and disinformation.” He then added that: “We are actively collaborating with the local and law enforcement agencies to resolve the matter and set the record straight … We are confident that our client will be cleared of any wrongdoing”.
Scott has kept a relatively low profile since November 2021, when 10 people were killed by a mob during his concert at the Astroworld festival in Houston, which he founded. After the disaster he had his first full concert at London’s O2 Arena in August 2022 followed by a few festival dates in South America in November. This Saturday marks his return to big live performances in the US, at the Rolling Loud festival in Los Angeles. His album Utopia, which has been severely delayed, is expected in 2023.
Who is Travis Scott
Travis Scott was born on April 30, 1992 in Houston, Texas. He grew up primarily with his grandmother in Missouri City, where he attended Elkins High School. Enrolled at the University of Texas San Antonio, Travis abandoned it to devote himself to his true passion, music. He then moved to New York, going against the wishes of his parents, who didn’t support his choice. In 2008 his career officially began, with the release of his first EP «Myspace» together with his friend Chris Holloway. From here he began to publish several EPs all in collaboration with his colleagues and friends, up to 2015 in which he released his debut album “Rodeo”.
In 2017, on May 15, Scott was arrested during one of his concerts for disturbing the peace and creating disturbances to the tune of his song “goosebumps”, and was released the following day. The same year he began dating the American celebrity Kylie Jenner, with whom he had his first daughter, Stormi, on February 1, 2018.
Throughout his career, Travis has been nominated in multiple categories at the MTV Music Awards, Billboard Music Awards, People Choice Awards, and received an impressive 5 Grammy nominations between 2018 and 2020. Read the full article
