Kylie Jenner: “In No World Would Have Continued Filming Or Performing”
The famous reality star broke her silence about the occurrences that took place during the Astroworld Festival. The star was present herself at the event.
The 24-year-old businesswoman stated that she and Scott were not aware of the casualties until they were informed of the news after the show. She wrote that they would have stopped the show if they were aware.
“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,” she added.

The Astroworld Star Works With the Police On Investigation
The American rapper seemed to have come up with an assumption about the Astroworld incident.
As reported by The Blast, the “Goosebumps” crooner believed that amidst the crowd, someone injected random people with a strange substance. A victim of the event allegedly confirmed this theory.
Scott and the Houston Police Department have been working together to get to the bottom of what happened. To express his gratitude to the Houston community, his message on Twitter partly read:
“I am committed to working together with the Houston community to heal and support families in need. Thank you to Houston PD, Fire Department, and NRG Park for their immediate response and support. Love You All.”
The Shocking Details Of The Astroworld Tragedy
In another report by The Blast, victims of the Astroworld tragedy have taken to all social media platforms to give their versions of what took place.
On Twitter, a victim claimed to have had close contact with death and revealed in detail what transpired.
Apparently, during the festival, the unidentified person tried to get Scott’s staff to end the show and come to the concertgoers’ aid during the chaos, but all to no avail.
The fan went on to add that due to the massive crowds, breathing became quite challenging, and there was no way to move out to get space. They further explained in the tweet:
“There was nowhere to go. The shoving got harder and harder…We began to scream for help. We could see security, just a few people over, in the walkway in the middle. It got tighter.”
The fan compared the incident to the collapse of a Jenga Tower, whereby person after person drowned in a crowd of people.
