Following the tragic events that ensued at his Astro world festival, Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner as well as W Magazine decided it was best to cancel the cover. However, a purported leaked version of the cover has been making the rounds on the internet.
According to TMZ and numerous Kardashian Instagram fan accounts, the cover depicts Kylie and Stormi standing up as Travis appears to be placing his ear to his girlfriend’s stomach, listening to the heartbeat of the baby they’re expecting.
The picture shows Kylie and her daughter, Stormi in similar yellow outfits, while Travis sits down with a glass of liquor in front of him in a button-up shirt. Sadly, the alleged cover was never published because of the catastrophe that characterized Travis Scott’s Astroworld festival which left 10 people dead, among which was a nine-year-old boy and a total of 300 injured.
“W editors have cleared any planned coverage of Travis and Kylie from their website, but the magazine was already printed, and now they are trying to stop the delivery trucks,” a source shared with Page Six. “In the light of what happened at Astroworld, the interview and cover lines seem inappropriate, to say the least.”
The alleged leak came days after the families of those who perished in the incident rejected Scott’s offer to pay for their funerals. According to Rolling Stone, the families of Jacob Jurinek, Franco Patino, Axel Acosta, and John Hilgert all declined the rapper’s offer to pay for the funeral expenses, after the family of Ezra Blount did so initially.
According to lawyer Richard Mithoff, “It was not an offer [the Hilgerts] were going to seriously consider. Of all the things this case is about, that’s the least of any concern. This family is set on making change and ensuring this never happens at a concert again. I find offering to pay for funerals frankly demeaning and really inappropriate to the magnitude of the tragedy that unfolded.”
Various lawsuits have been filed against Travis, Live Nation, and other organizers in regard to the stampede at the festival, with one claiming $750 million for multiple fans who endured anguish, and another asking $2 billion in damages.
