The SKIMS founder took to Instagram Stories on Monday, November 8, and issued a statement on behalf of her family.
Kim wrote, “Absolutely heartbroken for the lives who were lost and anyone who was hurt at Astroworld. Just like all of you, our family is in shock by the tragedy. 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. 🙏💔🕊.”
Kim Kardashian breaks her family’s silence
As The Blast previously told you, the matriarch of the Kardashian-Jenner clan had remained silent all weekend regarding the tragedy, which is kind of surprising, because Kendall, Kylie and her granddaughter, Stormi, were all in attendance.
While they were far away from the massive crowd, one would think a Kris of all people would be sounding off on social media the moment she found out what happened.
Alas, I guess a repost of Kim’s message will suffice.
I must be noted that at the time of writing this article, Kourtney Kardashian hadn’t reposted her sister’s message to her social media.
Kendall Jenner issued her own statement on her Instagram Story.
The supermodel wrote, “I’m still at a loss for words over the news from Astroworld. I’m truly broken for the families that have lost loved ones and my prayers go out to everyone involved. Sending everyone who has been affected all of my love and wishing them strength during this incredibly devastating and sensitive time.”
Kendall Jenner is at a loss for words
A day after tragedy struck Houston where ‘Astroworld’ was being held, both Travis and Kylie Jenner issued statements of their own.
“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.”
The young billionaire concluded with an apology and healing prayers for the event victims after she had refuted claims that they were aware of the fatalities.

“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.
Travis has received a lot of heat the past few days for continuing his performance despite the mass hysteria playing out below him.
In her statement, Kylie defended the rap star saying in no world would he ever continue performing had he known the severity of the situation.
“I want to make it clear we weren’t aware of any fatalities until the news came out after the snow and in no world would have continued filming or performing,” Kylie noted.
On Saturday, Travis issued a statement on Twitter and added multiple stories of himself apologizing and speaking directly to his fans via his Instagram Story.
The ‘Astroworld’ investigation is still ongoing.
