The family of a woman who died during a stampede at the end of a GloRilla and Finesse2tymes concert in Rochester, New York have said they plan to sue the rappers, per TMZ.
35-year-old Brandy Miller was one of the three people who died during the stampede at the end of the concert at Main Street Armory on March 5, and her sister Michelle said the family is lawyering up. They plan to file a lawsuit against the two rappers, the venue, and the promoters who organized the concert. They’ve since spoken to various attorneys following the death of Brandy, who was pronounced dead after she was taken to a hospital in critical condition. Her sister added that the family “has no plans to back down,” and is seeking a high-profile attorney in the case.
Both of the rappers reportedly left Main Street Armory prior to the fatal stampede, which police said was prompted by unfounded fears of gunfire among the audience. They have shared their condolences to the victims, and GloRilla said that she was “heartbroken” when she heard the news.
"I am devastated & heartbroken over the tragic deaths that happened after Sunday’s show," wrote GloRilla on Twitter last week. "My fans mean the world to me 😢praying for their families & for a speedy recovery of everyone affected
The other two victims were confirmed as 35-year-old Aisha Stephens, and 33-year-old Rhondesia Belton.
The venue has since had its entertainment license revoked, preventing the property from hosting concerts for the foreseeable future. “It is one step we can immediately take to ensure that the events of Sunday night are not repeated,” Rochester police chief David Smith said. “The bottom line is, lives were lost, and we need to take steps to make sure that no lives are lost in the future if this was indeed something that was preventable.”
