The family of the youngest victim of the Astroworld Festival has rejected rapper Travis Scott's offer to pay his funeral expenses, Rolling Stone reports.

Scott's lawyer, Daniel Petrocelli, proposed the offer in a recent letter to the attorneys for the family of nine-year-old Ezra Blount, writing that the rapper was "devastated" by the deaths.

"Travis is committed to doing his part to help the families who have suffered and begin the long process of healing in the Houston community. Toward that end, Travis would like to pay for the funeral expenses for Mr. Blount’s son," Petrocelli wrote, according to Rolling Stone.


Bob Hilliard, the attorney for the Blounts, responded by saying that Scott must take some accountability for what occurred during his Houston performance.

"Your client’s offer is declined," Hilliard wrote to Petrocelli. "I have no doubt Mr. Scott feels remorse. His journey ahead will be painful. He must face and hopefully see that he bears some of the responsibility for this tragedy."

Scott's legal counsel had previously reached out to the Blount family in hopes of arranging an in-person meeting — an offer the family also declined.

"We were pretty firm. With all due respect, no. This isn’t a photo-op story here. This is a 'who’s responsible and why' type of investigation. And he’s on the short list," Hilliard said of the rapper, according to Rolling Stone.

The Blount family is one of many that have filed lawsuits against Scott in the aftermath of the tragedy, which left 10 dead.

Prominent civil rights attorney Ben Crump, who is working with Hilliard, said earlier this month that he is representing more than 200 people in lawsuits stemming from the festival.

Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, a spokesperson for Scott, previously said the rapper "was not responsible for this" but "wants to be responsible for the solution."
