Kylie Jenner Says She and Travis Scott Are 'Broken and Devastated' by Astroworld Tragedy

"I am sending my deepest condolences to all the families during this difficult time," Kylie Jenner wrote on Instagram

Kylie Jenner says she and Travis Scott are "broken and devastated" by the events that occurred at the Astroworld Festival on Friday that left at least eight people dead and dozens of others injured.

"My thoughts and prayers are with all who lost their lives, were injured or affected in anyway by yesterday's events," Jenner, 24, wrote on her Instagram Story.

Stormi Webster's mother — who was in attendance — added that she is also thinking of Scott, 30, "who I know cares deeply for his fans and the Houston community," she said.

Jenner — who faced backlash on Saturday for a since-deleted Instagram Story that showed an ambulance in the crowd — also addressed accusations that Scott, a Houston native, ignored distraught fans who were begging him to stop the show.

"I want to make it clear we weren't aware of any fatalities until the news came out after the show and in no world would have continued filming or performing," she shared.
