HOUSTON (AP) Rap superstar Travis Scott was questioned on Monday in a deposition he is giving in connection with hundreds of lawsuits that were filed against him and others over the deaths and injuries at the 2021 Astroworld festival.

Scott was questioned in Houston during a deposition that could take several days to complete, two people with knowledge about the litigation said.

Lawyers and others connected to the lawsuits are under a gag order, preventing them from saying little beyond what happens during court hearings.

An attorney for Scott did not immediately return an email seeking comment. A spokesperson for Scott said a statement about Mondays deposition was being prepared.

This was the first time Scott was questioned by attorneys for those who have filed lawsuits since a crowd surge at his Nov. 5, 2021, concert in Houston killed 10 festivalgoers.
