Morris gained a lot of attention online after his claims regarding working with Scott.

Although unconfirmed and with no proof, @shanemorrisdotsucks claims he had a seizure in the presence of Travis Scott but was left alone in a Los Angeles basement.

Shane Morris claims he originally told this story in 2013 and it recirculated on Reddit in 2015.

Following the recent tragedies that took place at the artist’s annual music festival, Astroworld, Morris’s claims have started to circulate the internet once more.

We have been unable to contact Travis Scott regarding any of Morris’ comments and it’s a case of one man’s claims about another.

Meanwhile our sympathy goes out to the family and friends of those affected by the Astroworld tragedy.
