Pregnant Kylie Jenner is reportedly unscathed after attending her boyfriend Travis Scott‘s Friday night concert, where eight people were killed in a crush and stampede that left several others hospitalized.

Jenner, 24, who is expecting her second child by Scott, attended the concert at the  Astroworld  festival in Houston with her sister Kendall who is also said to be unhurt.

‘Everyone is shocked and upset. Kylie and Kendall were in the audience, but they are not injured. Travis won’t be performing tonight. The concert is canceled,’ a source informed People magazine.

Scott was filmed Friday night continuing to perform after eight people were crushed to death at Houston’s Astroworld Festival on Friday night with one witness saying it was a ‘floor of bodies’.

Distressing video showed an unconscious male concertgoer being rushed to a medical assistance area after he passed out in the crush, which happened after people surged towards the stage shortly after 9.15pm CST Friday night.

At least 23 people were rushed to a hospital – 17 of whom were caught up in the worst of the incident, including a 10-year-old, police said. The Houston Fire Department reported that 11 victims were in cardiac arrest and needed CPR. None of those killed or injured have been identified. Cops said 367 police officers and 241 security officers were working the event prior to the crush. 

Speaking out for the first time since the deadly surge, Scott tweeted on Saturday around 12.15pm saying he’s ‘absolutely devastated’ and is ‘committed to working together with the Houston community,’ including the police department.

Although he completed his 75-minute performance, at one point the rapper was filmed calling for help. In another video he stood on a platform with his microphone while chaos unfolded beneath him.

Meanwhile, Scott’s girlfriend Kylie Jenner, who attended the event, was blasted online for posting a clip of an ambulance tending to the injured and dead as the chaos unfolded. 

Jenner’s sister Kendall was in attendance too and shared footage of an energized crowd dancing at Scott performed on a fiery stage.

But other videos from the night showed distraught fans begging concert staff to halt the performance and help people escape the surge.

‘People are f***ing dying, I want to save somebody’s life,’ a man said as he climbed on a platform where a cameraman was filming the performance.

‘That’s somebody’s kid! I want to save them!’ he screamed – but to no avail. Astroworld Fest’s organizers offered their condolences to the families of those killed in a statement Saturday, and appealed for anyone with information to contact Houston Police. 

Meanwhile, TMZ reported that a ‘key person’ connected to Astroworld said that Friday night was actually the result of a ‘targeted attack’ after ‘someone in the crowd went crazy and began injecting people with some sort of drug, which caused panic and then a surge’. 

According to the Houston Chronicle Friday’s deadly incident was not the first time the concert’s producer Live Nation Worldwide and Live Nation Entertainment has come under scrutiny for OSHA safety and antitrust violations. The live-entertainment company – which puts on 40,000 shows per year, according to its website, and which Billboard has cited as the world’s largest – has faced charges relating to 16 violations and has paid more than $83million in penalties.
