The family of the youngest of 10 people who died at the Astroworld festival earlier this month, nine-year-old Ezra Blount, has rejected an offer Travis Scott made to pay for the boy's funeral.

'Your client’s offer is declined,' the family's attorney Bob Hilliard told Scott's lawyer Daniel Petrocelli in a letter obtained by Rolling Stone. 'I have no doubt Mr. Scott feels remorse. His journey ahead will be painful.

'He must face and hopefully see that he bears some of the responsibility for this tragedy.'

Ezra Blount, who was from Dallas, was among the 10 people who died as result of injures suffered amid a crowd surge at the November 5 festival at NRG Park in Houston. 

He died of irreversible organ failure at Texas Children’s Hospital November 14 after being placed in a medically induced coma. Blount's funeral took place in Texas on November 23.

Ezra’s grandparents previously told the publication that both Ezra Blount and his father Treston Blount were caught in the deadly crowd surge at the concert.

His grandmother Tericia Blount said, 'Everyone was pushing. It was so tight with no exits. His dad couldn’t breathe at all and passed out. We don’t really know what happened to Ezra after that.'
