Rapper Travis Scott continues to experience major fallouts, seven weeks after the deadly Astroworld festival as fashion house, Dior postpones their highly anticipated collection with the artist.
Dior confirmed this on Tuesday saying, “Out of respect for everyone affected by the tragic events at Astroworld, Dior has decided to postpone indefinitely the launch of products from the Cactus Jack collaboration originally intended to be included in its summer 2022 collection”
Scott’s team noted to the outlet he and Dior mutually decided to postpone the collection’s January launch.
The capsule collection collaboration between men’s artistic director Kim Jones and Scott’s Cactus Jack line was another huge mark for the rapper. The “Goosebumps” singer, 30, has teamed up with Nike, McDonald’s and Playstation for wildly successful partnerships. Forbes dubbed Scott “corporate America’s brand whisperer.”
Ten people died and hundreds were injured during the Nov. 5 concert in Houston, Tex. Scott, who continued performing for 37 minutes after the “mass casualty” incident began, insists he didn’t know what was going on.
Scott has been named in multiple lawsuits totaling more than $3 billion dollars, but denies being liable for the tragedy.
