Travis Scott’s Offer to Cover Funerals Rejected By More Families


Travis Scott offered to pay for burial costs for the deceased of Astroworld Fest — but more families of those who died are giving him the cold shoulder … turning down his cash.

TMZ has spoken to attorneys repping the families of 14-year-old John Hilgert and 27-year-old Danish Baig — both of whom perished during the event. In each of their cases … the families have opted to snub TS, with one family suggesting it’s a slap in the face.

Attorney Michael Lyons — who’s representing Baig’s family in a civil lawsuit against Travis and others — tells us … “We received a written offer from Travis Scott’s attorney Dan Petrocelli indicating that he would pay $7,500 in funeral burial costs and my clients are rejecting that.”

As for why … Lyons says the Baig family wants Travis nowhere near their son’s burial, adding … “[Y]ou can infer that when a parent has to bury their child that they’re not really interested in people who may have contributed to that being involved.”

Ditto for the Mithoff law firm, which is representing Hilgert’s family in a similar lawsuit against Travis — although, they didn’t explain why they’re rejecting the offer — only saying they turned it down. No word on whether it was also in the amount of $7,500.

Speaking of these lawsuits, we asked Lyons what he and the family hope to gain going forward (besides damages) — and he tells us his clients are hopeful for legislative reform so that this can never happen again.

As we reported … the family of 9-year-old Ezra Blount also rejected Travis’ offer for burial costs. While it’s unclear if any family has taken him up on the offer — we wouldn’t be surprised if all of them forgo his dough.
