Travis Scott has offered to pay for the funerals of all the victims of the Astroword disaster.

Earlier this week, we learned the family of the youngest Astroworld victim, 9-year old Ezra Blount, had turned down the offer.

The families of 14-year-old John Hilgert and 27-year-old Danish Baig are also turning down the $7500 Scott is offering to take care of the burials and arrangements.

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," Baig's family attorney Michael Lyons said. “[Y]ou can infer that when a parent has to bury their child that they’re not really interested in people who may have contributed to that being involved.”

The family of Hilgert dismissed the offer as a "slap in the face."

There is some thought that by taking the money, the families would weaken their case to sue Scott.

So far, Scott (and others) are facing over $2 billion in lawsuits over the deadly debacle.
