Weeks after W Magazine reportedly rushed to cancel coverage of Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner amid the Astroworld Fest tragedy, apparently leaked coverage has been making the rounds online. The decision to cancel the coverage was a decision between Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott to collaborate with the magazine.
The cover, which was shared by TMZ and several Kardashian-centric Instagram accounts, shows Kylie and Stormi standing as Travis appears to have his ear to his partner’s stomach, listening to the heartbeat of his future second child.
In the image, Kylie and her daughter are wearing matching yellow dresses, while Travis sits with a glass of booze in front of him, wearing a button-down shirt. Of course, the alleged cover was never meant to see the light of day after the post crushed it in the wake of the Scott’s Houston festival tragedy, which left 10 people dead, including a 9-year-old boy, and 300. wounded. .
“W editors removed any planned coverage of Travis and Kylie from their website, but the magazine was already in print, and now they’re trying to stop the delivery trucks,” an insider told Page Six after the ‘event. “In light of what happened at Astroworld, the interview and the cover lines seem inappropriate to say the least.”
The alleged leak comes days after relatives of several people who died as a result of the event refused Scott’s offer to pay the funeral costs. Lawyers for the families of 21-year-old friends Jacob Jurinek and Franco Patino, Axel Acosta, 21, and John Hilgert, 14, have all come forward to say their clients turned down the rapper’s offer to cover, after the Ezra Blount’s family initially rejected the offer, according to Rolling stone.
“It was not an offer [the Hilgerts] were seriously considering, ”lawyer Richard Mithoff told RS. “Of all the things this case is about, this is the least of the concerns. This family is determined to make change and make sure it never happens again at a concert. I find that offering to pay for the funeral is downright humiliating and truly inappropriate for the scale of the tragedy that has unfolded. “
Scott, along with Live Nation and other organizers, now face multiple lawsuits in connection with the crowd event, one seeking $ 750 million for several attendees who suffered distress, and another claiming 2 billion dollars in damages.
