A 9-year-old boy died Sunday, more than a week after he suffered critical injuries when he fell from his father’s shoulders during the deadly Astroworld Festival, according to Mayor Sylvester Turner.

Ezra Blount is the youngest of the now 10 victims of the Travis Scott show.

The child’s story captured attention across the country: Blount’s father hoped the show would be a bonding experience, his family said. Instead, as the crowd squeezed in, the father lifted the boy onto his shoulders to try to protect him.

Blount’s father passed out on that Nov. 5 night. He awoke to find the boy gone. The family located him at Texas Children’s Hospital, with damage to his lungs, kidney and heart. Doctors told them the child’s brain swelled after he went into cardiac arrest.

The family suspects he was trampled. They expected their “very bright star” would need a lifetime of care.

“The Blount family tonight is grieving the incomprehensible loss of their precious young son. This should not have been the outcome of taking their son to a concert, what should have been a joyful celebration,” attorney Ben Crump wrote in a statement on behalf of the family. “Ezra’s death is absolutely heartbreaking. We are committed to seeking answers and justice for the Blount family. But tonight we stand in solidarity with the family, in grief, and in prayer.”

Ezra adored Travis Scott, skateboarding and Fortnite, according to social media. His grandmother, Tericia Blount, said her dimpled grandson could sing “like an angel.” A video shared by his father showed the pair goofing around. Ezra lived with his mother in Dallas.

Nine other people died from injuries they sustained that night, including a dancer, two friends about to celebrate a 21st birthday and a club baseball player who just started high school.

“I am saddened to learn of Ezra’s death this evening,” Turner tweeted shortly after 8 p.m. Sunday. “Our city tonight prays for his mom, dad, grandparents, other family members and classmates at this time. They will need all of our support in the months and years to come.”

His grandfather, Bernon Blount, declined to comment on the death Sunday evening. On Nov. 11, the family joined the growing number of concert-goers who filed lawsuits. The family sued, among the defendants, rapper Travis Scott, his management and the Astroworld promoters.

“Me and the family, we’re struggling with this,” Blount said at the time. “We’re struggling with seeing the injuries to our grandchild and what he had to go through to receive those injuries. We’re hurt and disappointed that the city would allow an event to go on like this and for people to be deceased. We just want to know who’s responsible.” 

Other victims of the festival were: Brianna Rodriguez, 16, a Heights High School junior who loved to dance; Madison Dubiski, 23, a former high school cheerleader who encouraged her friends; Danish Baig, 27, a beloved brother expecting soon to be married; Franco Patiño, 21, a college student who impressed his father with his strength; Jacob Jurinek, 20, a young man who easily made friends; Rodolfo Peña, 23, an aspiring Border Patrol officer who dreamed of making the world safer; Axel Acosta, 21, a computer programming student; John Hilgert, 14, a Memorial High School freshman who wanted a prime spot for the show; and Bharti Shahani, 22, a Texas A&M University senior attending her first music festival.Travis Scott Set To Refund Astroworld Festival Attendees 1 kokotvng

Quavo And Jayda Cheaves Respond After Social Media Pins Lil Baby As Saweetie’s Mystery Bae

Published

on

Saweetie, Lil Baby, Jayda Cheaves and Quavo were the stars of a lil’ tea party on Sunday evening. And the refreshments served by social media users, and later the celebrities themselves, was definitely piping hot. The tea party kicked off with an Instagram post by Saweetie and ended with Lil Baby dropping a harsh message on Twitter. Let’s get into it, chile…

Saweetie Posts Mystery Bae 

Early Sunday, Saweetie shared the moment dozens of roses were delivered to her. She appeared to be at a recording studio, but didn’t share any details or words about the sweet gesture.

A few hours later, the ‘Icy’ rapper posted a photo dump on Instagram. The carousel-type post featured selfies, moments with fans, bawdy-ody-ody shots and a Chanel purse sitting on a piano. However, it was the last flick of the slider that put social media detectives to work! Saweetie snapped a mirror selfie that captured her sitting on the lap of a mystery bae. Almost immediately, social sites exploded with users giving their theories on who the partially hidden person could be.

Social Users Name Lil Baby 

From Nigerian artist Olamide to 42 Dugg, the guesses kept rolling in. Then, a post on Lil Baby’s official Facebook account painted another picture. Apparently, Lil Baby recently wore dark pants and black shoes that match those seen on Saweetie’s mystery boo. The Facebook post is dated November 18 with the caption “It’s only a handful of real ones, people be corny.” It features a still photo and a video of Baby showing off his drip in a mirror. The video’s caption reads “It’s a cold cold world.” As expected, social media users put two and two together–down to the accents on the shoes and pants. The side-by-side comparison quickly went viral.

Lil Baby Deletes A Tweet 

As online users discussed the assumed pair, Lil Baby took some time to clean up his Twitter account. Just days ago, he told fans “Baby not dating NO ONE” on Twitter. He also confirmed his bachelor status saying “I’m single.” But, in the midst of this rumored romance exploding on Sunday night, the tweet disappeared.

Quavo Enters The Chat 

After about an one hour of sipping this tea, Quavo let his feelings about the situation be known. He wrote “Ain’t trippin we can swap it out #QCTheLabel” on his Instagram Story. While Quavo didn’t mention names, users ran with the idea that he was speaking on Jayda Cheaves. Jayda, as you may know, is Lil Baby’s ex-girlfriend. She shares a toddler son named Loyal with the rapper.

Hey Jayda GWORL! 

Moments after The Shade Room posted Quavo’s message on Instagram, Jayda popped up on the page. Apparently, she liked and then unliked ... featuring Quavo’s suggestion. Afterwards, Quavo’s sister decided to add her two cents by reposting a photo of Jayda to her Instagram Story.

Later in the evening, Jayda hopped on her Instagram Story with a jokey joke. She posted a photo of her trending status on Twitter and wrote “I ain’t even do bun.” Jayda also included a GIF reaction of a woman eating popcorn.

Lil Baby Speaks 

Hours after social media users pinned him as mystery boo, Lil Baby said his piece. The Atlanta artist hopped on Twitter and let off two thoughts while keeping his words name-free.

“B****es really be weird,” Lil Baby tweeted. He continued on in a separate post saying, “If you want clout use BABY.”

And to wrap things up, at some point throughout the entire fiasco, Saweetie reposted her carousel of images. The second time around mystery man, who is presumably Lil Baby, was not included. Whew, what a party! *sips tea*
