Any living human would be right to want to show off if they got a 1-of-30, super-expensive car, so that wasn’t the problem with Scott. The issue was that he was – and is – on the hook for a $750 million lawsuit over the Astroworld tragedy from last year. Scott organized and performed at the music event, which resulted in 10 people dying in a crowd surge. The victims’ families accuse him of foregoing basic safety measures that would have prevented an incident like this.
In other words, treating himself to a multi-million car when he still had not owned up to his share of the blame in the tragedy was heartless, at best. One attorney tells celebrity publication TMZ that the tragedy could have been prevented if Scott had spent just half of the money he spent on the Bugatti on “simple safety measures.”
Scott’s own attorney is fighting back the suggestion, but with a surprising argument: the car isn’t even new. He says Scott bought it in 2020, so bringing it up now and claiming it’s a new purchase is nothing short of image manipulation. So, the Bugatti is now at the center of a very public dispute, and fans are taking sides.
Regardless of how old the Chiron is, here is the video of Scott arriving at and departing from the studio in it. It turns out even someone as used to expensive cars as he must rely on the extra help to ensure its integrity: as he’s trying to drive off, he honks to alert the bodyguard and sends him to the rear to stop traffic for a few seconds as he pulls into the lane.
