Travis Scott is wanted in an assault case but his attorney claims it’s all a ‘misunderstanding’.

The astroworld The 30-year-old rapper allegedly punched a sound engineer and caused $12,000 in damage at Nebula nightclub in midtown Manhattan early Wednesday morning, and the alleged victim is speaking out. Scott was at the venue and made a surprise appearance with his protégé, Don Toliver.

An NYPD spokesman confirmed the incident to Yahoo Entertainment on Wednesday and said a suspected attack took place at the location as of 2 a.m. Wednesday. The trigger was a “verbal argument” between Scott and a 52-year-old that “escalated into a physical altercation”. The victim was reportedly “slapped in the face,” and the attacker “then damaged a speaker and video screen, causing approximately $12,000 in equipment damage.” The investigations are still ongoing.”

Mitchell Schuster, an attorney for Scott (real name: Jacques Webster II), tells us, “While this is clearly a misunderstanding that has been exaggerated through clickbait and misinformation, we are actively working with jurisdiction and law enforcement to resolve it and to remedy We are confident that our client will be cleared of any wrongdoing.”

A source close to Scott adds, “Travis and his team [are] are already working with law enforcement to find a solution and find out the truth.” The person suggests the incident “has the hallmarks of a money robbery,” but promises it will “be solved and anyone with an agenda, be held accountable”.

Nebula’s managing partner, Richie Romero, also weighs in, telling Yahoo, “This is completely over the top. It was a great night.” And Dorian Harrington, the talent booker who hired Toliver and was on stage when the drama unfolded, says it was “a total misunderstanding… What I saw on stage doesn’t reflect it reflecting what I read on the news. The music and the night worked out great and everyone left peacefully.”

However, the sound engineer tells a different story. The man was interviewed from a hospital bed in New Jersey New York news station WYNW-TV on Wednesday evening. Identified only as “Mark” but described as one of the “most respected sound engineers in New York City,” he said Scott played the DJ music so loud that the audio was distorted. When he tried to turn the volume down, Scott reportedly got angry. He claims Scott gave him the finger and then went to where he was, offstage in a cordoned off area, and hit him on the head.

The alleged victim said he could not turn his head and was hospitalized. He told the outlet: “My throat is broken. My arm is tingling. I’ve got needles and needles going down him.”

According to the outlet, Mark also claimed that before Scott started dating him, the rapper shoved the DJ and took the phone of a clubgoer who took his picture and threw it across the room. Scott reportedly fled the West 41st St. Club in a car.

TMZ had Video by Scott exchanging words with the DJ and seemingly saying “back the f*** up”. Another video showed the apparently damaged sound system.

Earlier in the night, Scott was also the surprise guest at Toliver’s show at the Irving Plaza music venue in Union Square. They later went to Nebula where Toliver was booked to throw an after party.

The “Sicko Mode” singer is longtime boyfriend of reality star and beauty mogul Kylie Jenner, with whom he shares two children, Stormi and Aire. However, they are reportedly on a hiatus.

Scott returned to the stage last year for the first time since the Astroworld Festival tragedy. During his headlining set at his festival in November 2021, 10 people died during a crowd. Scott, who said he was unaware people were being trampled, was the defendant in a number of court hearings related to the tragedy.
