The 2017 tragedy is still legally unresolved.
EDIT: A source close to Travis' camp has confirmed that "Travis doe, in fact, have insurance (that covers this show) and that his camp has yet to see any evidence of the alleged lawsuit on October 18th."
"Any claims circulating suggesting that Travis did not have insurance for his 2017 performance at Terminal 5 are false. Rumors that Bowery Presents has filed a lawsuit against him on October 18th, 2018 are false. Bowery Presents is already a defendant in the pending lawsuit and, as part of its defense strategy in answering the complaint against it, seeks to divert blame for plaintiff’s injuries by blaming everyone but itself," reads an official statement from Travis' team.

Travis Scott is still tied up in legal proceedings related to an injury that took place during one of his concerts in 2017. The venue in which one of his fans was left paralyzed is now claiming that the artist breached their deal at the time, by failing to take out insurance for the event.
Bowery Presents LLC, the company that owns the New York music venue Terminal 5 where the incident happened, reportedly filed a lawsuit against Travis Scott on October 18. They claim the rapper failed to get insurance for one of his shows despite their previous agreement. The event ended with a fan falling off a balcony and becoming permanently paralyzed.
According to the venue, the rapper is responsible for any damages awarded to the fan in the lawsuit filed against both the venue and Travis Scott.
Last year, Kyle Green, the fan in question, sued Travis Scott claiming his performance incited chaos, which led to Green being shoved over the balcony by fanatics. He also claims he was improperly removed from the venue after the fall, carelessness that contributed to his needing a wheelchair for mobility.
Travis Scott countersued The Bowery and Strike Force Protective Services for negligence surrounding the incident. The documents also claimed that Green is responsible for his injuries as he should have understood the risks involved in attending his concert.
The case remains ongoing.
