Kylie Jenner Sends Condolences After Deleting Footage From Astroworld Festival Tragedy
Kylie says she’s ‘broken and devastated’ after posting and then quickly removing footage with an ambulance trapped among the crowd at Travis Scott’s music festival
AceShowbiz –Kylie Jenner is sending her “thoughts and prayers” to the families of those who died at her partner Travis Scott’s Astroworld Festival on Friday (05Nov21).
The reality TV star, who is expecting her second child with “The Antidote” hitmaker, has come under fire for posting Instagram videos from the event, which included footage of an ambulance slowly making its way through the packed crowd of 50,000 at NRG Park in Scott’s Houston, Texas hometown.
She later deleted the clips and issued her condolences to those impacted by the tragedy.
“Travis and I are broken and devastated. My thoughts and prayers are with all who lost their lives, were injured or affected in anyway by yesterday’s events. And also for Travis who I know cares deeply for his fans and the Houston community,” she wrote in an Instagram Story Saturday.
“I want to make it clear we weren’t aware of any 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 all the families during this difficult time and will be praying for the healing of everyone who has been impacted.”
Travis added his own emotional Instagram video on Saturday, following an earlier statement he released on Twitter, saying, “I’m honestly just devastated and I could never imagine anything like this happening. We’re actually working right now to identify the families so we can help assist them through this tough time… I could just never understand the severity of the situation.”
A representative for the Jenners, meanwhile, has strongly denied a report in Saturday’s The Sun that Kylie and Kendall had “walked past bodies” of victims, telling the outlet, “Your story is egregious and absolutely false. Neither of the girls were nearby.”
An insider had earlier told the newspaper, “After everything went down, Kendall and Kylie were escorted out and walked past bodies and people getting CPR. They kept their heads down and made sure no one saw their faces… One guy got carted out in front of them. They were wearing masks and had their hoodies up.”
