Days after ten lives were lost at the tragic Astroworld Music Concert, Travis Scott offered to cover the funeral expenses of all victims, according to a report by Variety.

This decision came after Scott released a statement on his social media accounts, expressing his 'heartfelt' apology and message of condolences to affected families.

Now TMZ is reporting that a few families with more families of those who died are giving him the cold shoulder and turning down the funds he wants to pledge for contribution.

The report says that the tabloid publication spoke to attorneys representing two families from the affected 10, the family of 14-year-old John Hilgert and 27-year-old Danish Baig.

It turns out both of them have snubbed the rapper with one of the families is alleged to have framed this contribution from Scott as a slap in the face.

Attorney Michael Lyons said in this TMZ report:

We received a written offer from Travis Scott's attorney Dan Petrocelli indicating that he would pay $7,500 in funeral burial costs, and my clients are rejecting that."

Other families are reportedly focusing on the burial of their lost child and are in no way interested in the amount that Scott and his team want to pay.

A report from Rolling Stone says a massive new lawsuit is seeking $2 billion in damages from Travis Scott and other parties that had a hand in putting together Astroworld Music Festival.

This suit is set to have been filed on behalf of 282 plaintiffs, and it follows recent reports from AJ+ of 140 lawsuits and a $750 million suit that were filed earlier during the week.
