Travis Scott claims he was too busy with the "Astroworld" tour to tend to the Super Bowl Lawsuit.
Travis Scott has been performing a steady slew of shows ever since Astroworld dropped. The rapper wrapped up the first leg of the "Astroworld" tour in December and is expected to embark on the second leg in the coming weeks. Before that, he was performing across the States and Europe promoting his album. However, the rapper argued that the steady stream of shows is what prevented him from dealing with a lawsuit stemming from Super Bowl weekend in 2018.

According to The Blast, Travis Scott claims that he was too busy on tour to deal with the $150K lawsuit with Minneapolis concert promoters. He demands that he doesn't get sanctioned for blowing off a court date. The promoters claim Scott flopped on a concert during Super Bowl weekend after already receiving a $150K advance payment which is the amount they sued the rapper for. Scott later countersued, claiming they never confirmed his travel plan or had the funds to cover the rest of what he's owed. However, the company claimed they booked a PJ for him and spent thousands to promote the concert.
The judge ordered both parties to complete a settlement conference to settle their issues before Nov. 26. 2018. On Jan. 2nd, it was revealed in court documents that the judge wasn't happy the two parties didn't have a conference. The judge issued a warning to both of them asking them to explain why they shouldn't have $1500 sanctions imposed against them.
Scott's lawyer later told the court to give them more time, explaining Scott's been on tour from August to December and traveling across 31 different cities in the U.K. and U.S. Additionally, his lawyer claimed the promoters' lawyer took no issues and understood that Scott was on tour. Both parties said there's no need for sanctions as they're trying to reach a settlement.
