Kylie Jenner returns to social media for the first time since Astroworld tragedy left 10 dead

Kylie Jenner made her return to social media to wish Hailey Bieber a happy birthday on Monday afternoon. 

The Instagram post marks the first time the 24-year-old makeup mogul has posted since the statement shared on behalf of she and Travis Scott, following the Astroworld tragedy which left 10 dead on November 5. 

Posting an artful photo to her story of Hailey, 25, and her daughter Stormi, three, she gushed ‘happy birthday @haileybieber. You are such a beautiful person inside and out. We love you lots.’

Kylie seemed to make a quiet return to social media on Monday as additionally a post was shared to her Kylie Cosmetics page for the first time since November 5. 

There have been no new posts on her additional companies Instagram pages: Kylie Baby, Kylie Skin and Kylie Swim since November 5 and October 27 respectively.

A source told The Sun that in the wake of the Astroworld catastrophe in Houston, Texas on November 5  Kylie has delayed the launch of her holiday makeup line, which has dropped on November 19 for the past four years in a row. 

DailyMail.com reached out to Jenner’s reps for comment but did not receive an immediate reply. 

Prior to her Monday posting, Kylie had only shared an Instagram statement on behalf of she and the rapper following the festival, which has now claimed 10 lives — the youngest victim being just nine-years-old. 

She wrote that she and Scott were ‘broken and devastated,’ clarified that neither were ‘aware of any fatalities until the news came out after the show’ and added that the rapper would have stopped ‘performing’ had he known about the situation.

Following a stampede just 30 minutes into Scott’s 75-minute set at NRG Park, a ‘mass casualty’ situation was declared as 300 people were treated on site and 13 were hospitalized. 

Some 50,000 people were present at the event on November 5 and the investigation is ongoing. 

Lawsuits have been filed by more than 280 people with Houston based lawyer Tony Buzbee representing 125 victims alone. 

Buzzbee’s case names both Scott and rapper Drake and seeks $750 million in damages on behalf of the victims. 

Collectively over $3B in lawsuits have been filed against the two rappers as well as event promoters Live Nation and ScoreMore as well as Apple.

Statement: Kylie released a statement on behalf of she and Scott where she said in part ‘I want to make it clear we weren’t aware of any fatalities until the news came out after the show and in no world would have continued filming or performing’

A lawyer by the name of Nick Rozansky, attorney at Brutzkus Gubner Rozansky Seror Weber, had told Yahoo Finance that it would be a ‘stretch’ that all the lawsuits would fall on Scott. 

‘The law requires him to engage in specific conduct that incited the incidents,’ Rozansky said. ‘What did he do at Astroworld that night? That’s the question the courts will be asking.’ 

Houston’s police chief Troy Finner blamed Scott for not pulling the plug on the deadly Astroworld concert as new footage showed cops casually filming the Travis Scott show nearly 30 minutes after a mass casualty event was declared.

‘We’ve been looking and the timelines have moved and that’s why we shouldn’t jump ahead of things, lets just wait. that’s part of the investigation.’

 Finner, who said he did not have a close relationship with Scott and had only met him twice, said whether or not the show went on was not up to the police department.

‘Authorities ability to end the show – we don’t hold the plug, okay? But it’s always in a plan, there’s always discussion of how that would happen and we had those discussions with the promoters,’ Finner said.

‘The ultimate authority to end the show is with production and the entertainer,’ he added.

Kylie — who is currently pregnant with Scott’s second child — had been hunkered down with Scott in his Houston mansion but it was said that she and Stormi had flown back to Los Angeles on November 12.

‘Kylie and her team waited until it was late and left the house in blacked out cars heading for the airport, they didn’t want anyone to see them,’ a source told The Sun.
