The claim also alleges that Drake came on stage next to Scott and helped incite the crowd. The organisers of the event have also come under fire in law suits filed by separate claimants.

Another attendee, Manuel Souza’s claim accused Scott and organisers ‘consciously ignored the extreme risks of harm to concertgoers’ and in some instances ‘actively encouraged and fomented dangerous behaviors.’

In a statement prominent civil rights attorney Ben Crump, who is representing some of the concert-goers said, ‘We are hearing horrific accounts of the terror and helplessness people experienced – the horror of a crushing crowd and the awful trauma of watching people die while trying unsuccessfully to save them.’

Scott’s partner, Kylie Jenner, claimed the rapper was not aware of the deaths until after the concert had finished.
