Peter Valdriz, like many fans, responded to Scott's tweeted promise earlier this week of unloading a total of $100,000 via the Cash app to his supporters. "This would definitely help with my Mom's funeral cost," Valdriz said in his reply. Scott later hit Valdriz with $800, adding that it's "not much, but hope can help."
"Knowing that someone is out there trying to help us during this difficult time means the world to us," Valdriz told TMZ Thursday. The fan's mother, who died earlier this month due to complications from a brain virus, would have turned 52 on the same day that Scott gave him a donation. Following Scott's Cash contribution, Valdriz added, other strangers pitched in to help him with additional funeral costs.
The ever-generous Cactus Jack Records founder's next big move is the inaugural Astroworld Festival, hitting his hometown of Houston in November. Though a full lineup hasn't yet been unveiled, Scott has been confirmed as the festivities' headliner. If all that I've imagined in my head actually comes to pass, the final lineup should include Tame Impala and Bill $aber. We'll presumably be finding out very soon.
