Award-winning American rapper, singer, songwriter, and producer Travis Scott was born Jacques Berman Webster II on April 30, 1991, and is known for his heavy use of ad-libs and harmonization.
The musician, who dropped out of college and started making music as a teenager, is the founder of Cactus Jack Records and released his first album, "Rodeo," in 2015. "Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight," the singer's second album, followed a year later.
However, mayhem struck at a concert following the release of his third album, "Astroworld," in 2018. Here are all the details about the Astroworld festival mayhem and Travis Scott's personal life.

WHAT HAPPENED AT ASTROWORLD?
Astroworld festival was launched in 2018 and held every year except in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In 2021, the concert returned with scheduled performances for November 5 and 6.
On November 5, 2021, as the "Sicko Mode" rapper performed, a large crowd surged toward the front of the stage and caused a mass accident, leaving nine attendees dead and more injured.
The Houston Fire Chief, Samuel Peña, revealed that the panic began around 9:00 p.m., and there were nearly 50,000 individuals who attended the music festival. He said:
"At the start of the mass casualty incident, when it was triggered … We transferred 17 patients to the hospital."
The incident took place at NRG Park, and a source confirmed that the swift response from the festival's security and staff undoubtedly saved the situation from being worse.
WAS TRAVIS SCOTT PRESENT AT THE BILLBOARD MUSIC AWARDS?
After the Astroworld incident, Scott did not perform at award shows until the May 16, 2022, Billboard Music Awards, where he made his first televised performance and performed his songs "Mafia" and "Lost Forever."
Scott walked with his girlfriend, Kylie Jenner, and their daughter, Stormi, on the award's red carpet. The couple also welcomed a baby boy, whom they had named Wolf, on February 2, 2022. However, the couple revealed they would change his name later as Wolf did not suit their son.
Stormi wore a mono sleeve white dress and white high-tops sneakers for the awards, Jenner wore a silver fitted column gown and gold sandals, and Scott wore a brown suit paired with white sneakers and green shoelaces.

WHEN DID TRAVIS SCOTT AND KYLIE JENNER START DATING?
A few weeks after Jenner split from her four-year relationship with Tyga in 2017, she went public with her relationship with Scott at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in April 2017.
That same month, she was spotted cozied up courtside at an NBA game with Scott before they headed to Boston for his concert at Bentley University.
They went everywhere together, and Scott reportedly told his friends that their relationship was the real deal. They got matching butterfly tattoos a few months later after he released his "Butterfly Effect" song.
In September 2017, there were reports that Jenner was pregnant. The couple welcomed their first child, Stormi, on February 1, 2018, and before the end of the year, Scott revealed they would get married soon.
In October 2019, after a series of cheating allegations against Scott, the couple announced they were taking a break from their relationship but did not consider it a complete breakup.
Four months after their breakup, a source revealed that the couple, who remained friends and were co-parenting their daughter, was working on rekindling their love.

In May 2021, Jenner supported Scott at his concert, and the family of three attended the Parsons Benefit together in June 2021. In August 2021, there was news that Jenner was expecting their second child.
The media personality, socialite, model, and businesswoman confirmed the news in September 2021, and in February 2022, Jenner and Scott welcomed their son.
