Travis Scott is wanted for questioning by police after a man claimed the rapper punched him in the face at a Manhattan nightclub early Wednesday.
A sound engineer who works at Club Nebula in Midtown told the authorities that he was in a verbal dispute with Scott that escalated into a physical altercation around 2 a.m., police said.
The 52-year-old victim alleged that the 31-year-old Scott punched him in the face and did $12,000 worth of damage to an audio speaker and a video screen, police said.
The victim didn’t suffer visible injuries and refused medical attention, police said.
The suspect fled in a car, police said.
The NYPD is not naming a suspect at this time, but the victim claims it was rapper Travis Scott.
The Houston-born rapper has come under fire for safety surrounding his concerts, particularly the Astroworld Festival in Nov. 2021, where a mass-casualty crowd crush killed 10 people.
