Travis Scott has hired a high-powered attorney to defend him against lawsuits filed in the wake of the deadly Astroworld Festival.

Former Donald Trump attorney Daniel Petrocelli emailed attorneys representing the families of 10 deceased fans, offering to pay funeral costs and other expenses.

In his emails, Petrocelli said Scott “is devastated by the tragedy” and grieves for the victims’ loved ones.

The family of the youngest victim, Ezra Blount, 9, rejected Petrocelli’s offer.

According to the Houston Chronicle, Petrocelli, 68, is known for representing high-profile clients and reportedly charges $1,500 an hour.

Petrocelli heads a team of attorneys defending the troubled rapper, who was arrested twice for inciting the crowd at his concerts.

Scott’s legal bills will likely top $1 million a month.

Scott and the other defendants face 120 wrongful death and personal injury lawsuits totaling over $1 billion.
