Kim Kardashian has weighed in on the deaths that took place at Travis Scott’s Astroworld concert festival Friday.

“Absolutely heartbroken for the lives who were lost and anyone who was hurt at Astroworld,” Kardashian wrote in an update to her Instagram Stories Monday.

“Just like all of you, our family is in shock by the tragedy,” she continued. “We are keeping all of the victims, families and loved ones impacted in our prayers for healing — as well as Travis who we know cares so much about his fans and is truly devastated.”

Kardashian closed the missive with a set of praying hands, broken heart and dove emoji.

Eight people were killed and more than 300 injured in what authorities initially labeled as a trampling accident during the first night of the two-day festival at NRG Park in Scott’s native Houston, Texas.

The rapper had continued to perform as the incident took place, despite seemingly taking notice of an ambulance in the crowd. Both he and the mother of his children, Kylie Jenner, took to social media in the wake of the tragedy to address the backlash against him that followed.

“I’m absolutely devastated by what took place last night,” Scott tweeted about 14 hours after the tragedy. “My prayers go out to the families and all those impacted by what happened at Astroworld Festival.” He later said he was partnering with mental health provider BetterHealth to offer free counseling to those affected by the tragedy, and his management team announced Monday that Scott would be paying for the funeral expenses of those who lost their lives.

Jenner, 24, who is pregnant with her second child with Scott, wrote in an Instagram Story late Saturday that “I want to make it clear that we weren’t aware of the fatalities until the news came out after the show and in no world would have continued filming or performing.”

“I am sending my deepest condolences to the families during this difficult time and will be praying for the healing of everyone who has been impacted,” she continued.
