American socialite and entrepreneur, Kim Kardashian has finally spoken about the tragic events of the Astroworld incident that left eight people dead.

WuzupNigeria reported that the music festival was hosted by Travis Scott and held in Houston, Texas on Friday. However, it was cut short due to a stampede caused when the crowd surged towards the stage as the rapper performed on-stage.

41-year-old Kim, whose sister Kylie Jenner is dating and has children with Scott, released a statement addressing the tragedy for the first time.

In a Tweet on Monday, she said; "Absolutely heartbroken for the lives who were lost and anyone who was hurt at Astroworld. Just like all of you, our family is in shock by the tragedy.

"We are keeping all of the victims, families and loved ones impacted in our prayers for healing – as well as Travis who we know cares so much about his fans and is truly devastated."

Kendall Jenner, Kylie's younger sister who was also at the festival said; "I’m still at a loss for words over the news from Astroworld. I’m truly broken for the families that have lost loved ones and my prayers go out to everyone involved.

"Sending everyone who has been affected all of my love and wishing them strength during this incredibly devastating and sensitive time."

Meanwhile, 30-year-old Travis Scott has vowed to pay for the funerals of those who died at Astroworld while also vowing to offer mental health support.
