Astroworld 2021 ended in chaos on November when multiple people were killed and hundreds got injured as the result of a stampede toward the stage at the event in Houston.

Shanazia Williamson and her husband, Jarawd Owens, from Dayton, Ohio, attended the festival and say they were expecting a baby until Williamson was crushed by a stampede of fans, according to a wrongful death lawsuit cited by Rolling Stone magazine.

The couple filed the suit in December against the rapper, security company Valle Services SMG, ASM Global, promoters Live Nation, and ScoreMore, and the Harris County Sports and Convention Corporation.

"While in attendance at the festival, Shanazia was trampled and crushed resulting in horrific injuries and ultimately the death of her and Jarawd’s unborn child," the suit declares. "In addition, Shanazia sustained injuries to her shoulder, back, leg, chest, stomach, and other parts of her body."

"Defendants’ failure to plan, design, manage, operate, staff, and supervise the event was a direct and proximate cause of Shanazia’s injuries and death of her and Jarawd’s unborn child," it adds.

Official records show that 10 people were killed at the music event, along with hundreds more suffering injuries as Scott performed on stage.

The suit also alleges that the defendants - Scott, Live Nation promoters, and others - displayed negligence for several reasons such as providing an insufficient security team, a lack of medical personnel, and a failure to recognize safety hazards during the festival.

Williams and Owens' claim is one of the hundreds of lawsuits filed against the rapper and companies involved in the festival.

Per Daily Mail, a document filed in Harris County, Texas, on Monday showed that over 700 people who are suing over the festival suffered injuries that needed ample medical treatment.

The 'Sicko Mode' rapper continuously denied any responsibility for the tragedy at Astroworld until March when he addressed the tragic festival by announcing a $5 million project called Project HEAL that ensures event safety.

Six months after Astroworld, Scott performed publicly for the first time at a concert in Miami on May 8. He is also scheduled to perform at the Billboard music awards ceremony this Sunday.
