Scott himself was not involved in the settlements and his team didn’t participate in any discussions related to them.

According to the report, Attorney Tony Buzbee, who represents the family of 21-year-old Axel Acosta, one of the 10 victims who lost their life at the event, said that Acosta’s family settled out of court after naming Scott Live Nation and others in a lawsuit.

Acosta passed away due to injuries suffered during a crowd surge at the November 2021 festival. He had traveled from Washington to Houston to see Scott perform.

The settlement brings to a close only one of several lawsuits that have been filed against Scott and Live Nation by families of those impacted by Astroworld.
