Travi$ Scott Pleads Guilty to Reckless Conduct for Stampede at 2015 Lollapalooza
Back in August, during his set at Lollapalooza 2015, Travi$ Scott caused quite the riot. The rapper got on stage 30 minutes past his set time and only stayed for four minutes. Once he got on stage, he told fans to jump the barricade and rush the stage. Fans followed his encouragement and security quickly shut the show down. Now, the rapper has just pleaded guilty to reckless conduct charges.

Many feel it serves him right since a 15-year-old girl was trampled when people started rushing the stage. The judge that found Scott guilty has ordered him to be under court supervision for a year. That's actually quite the lesser charge seeing as Scott initially fled the scene and then later was taken into custody.
This may not have been Scott's first run in with the police. Back in 2013, he tweeted that he was arrested and released, but never gave details as to what happened.
Along with this news, some rumors that Scott is the reason for Rihanna's album delay have also popped up. Alleged producer and songwriter by the name of Glass John took to Twitter to rant about how Scott was the reason for Rihanna's delay and that he was pushing her to make more trap music. John is the producer and songwriter for the track, "Kiss It Better," on the upcoming ANTI album. John also mentioned the incident that took place last week when Rihanna was forced to leave a club after shots were fired and stated that Scott put her in harms way.
Neither Scott nor Rihanna have responded to John's accusations and based on recent history, we doubt they will.
