Another controversy is sweeping Travis Scott’s camp. Scott is accused of acting out at the Nebula nightclub in New York City this week. Initially, reports stated that Scott was accused of assaulting a sound engineer in a heated confrontation. That same evening, the rapper was also seen in a video attempting to grab someone’s phone. Clips of the rows quickly circulated online, and soon, Scott’s representative and attorney issued statements via Complex.
The Houston star’s rep says the allegations are “a complete and total joke.” They reportedly added, “As anyone with common sense can see, the video that shows Travis DJ’ing in Nebula proves that the incident was nothing. All it shows [is] that Travis’s performance was disrupted by someone aggressively in his personal space.” Additionally, attorney Mitchell Schuster spoke on the ongoing controversy.
Travis Scott’s Attorney Calls It “Clickbait & Misinformation”
At the time of this publication, no official charges have been filed against Scott. However, there are reports that he plans to turn himself over to the authorities. “Legal counsel for Travis are actively working with the authorities and remain confident that Travis will be vindicated once all is said and done,” he stated. “Any statements about the incident involving Travis are clearly an attempt to sensationalize what is nothing more than a misunderstanding.”
When news of the incidents was first shared, Schuster called it all “clickbait and misinformation.” He further explained to TMZ: “While this is clearly a misunderstanding being blown out of proportion by clickbait and misinformation, we are actively working with the venue and law enforcement to resolve and set the record straight. We are confident our client will be cleared of any wrongdoing.”
The Alleged Victim Speaks
The sound engineer named in the controversy has only been identified as “Mark.” He detailed his alleged injuries with a new station and claimed Scott damaged $12k worth of equipment. Mark asserted he and Scott verbally disagreed before the rapper allegedly attacked him. “My neck is f*cked up. My arm is tingling. I have pins and needles going down it,” he said. Check it out above.
