Travis Scott sought by police following alleged NYC nightclub assault & $12,000 equipment damage
UPDATE: Scott's lawyer, Mitchell Schuster, said in a statement, "While this is clearly a misunderstanding being blown out of proportion by clickbait and misinformation, we are actively working with the venue and law enforcement to resolve and set the record straight. We are confident our client will be cleared of any wrongdoing."
Ritchie Romero, managing partner of Club Nebula, added, "This is blown completely out of proportion. It was a great night."
Dorian Harrington, a talent booker who was on stage with Travis during his surprise DJ set at Nebula, said, “This is a total misunderstanding, and what I saw on stage doesn’t reflect what I read in the news. The music and the night turned out great and everyone left peacefully."
Travis Scott is being sought by police after allegedly assaulting a man at NYC nightclub Nebula and causing $12,000 worth of damage to equipment, according to reports by TMZ, NBC News, and others. According to a statement from the NYPD given to NBC News, a sound engineer at the club says "he was involved in a verbal dispute with" Scott, who the man claims escalated the dispute "into a physical altercation." Sources told TMZ and Page Six that the man did not complain of pain or have any physical injuries.
According to NBC News, "A representative for Scott said they were not aware of all of the details and did not want to make an immediate comment."
Scott appeared as a surprise guest with Don Toliver at his Irving Plaza show earlier on Tuesday night, before the alleged incident. He's scheduled to headline this Saturday (3/4) at Rolling Loud California, which will be his first headlining festival appearance in the US since the Astroworld tragedy in 2021.
