By accompanying his friend Tyga and his partner Cher to the AmfAR gala afterparty in Cannes on the night of Thursday to Friday, May 24, Alexander “AE” Edwards certainly did not expect that lightning from Travis Scott descends on him. And yet, the evening was visibly lively.

Far from the rhinestones and sequins displayed on the red carpet, Cannes evenings sometimes offer much less glamorous shows… Friday May 24 in the early morning, while the “after party” of the AmfAR gala organized by Richie Akiva was in full swing. full in the Domaine La Dilecta, a stone’s throw from the Cannes festival, American rappers Travis Scott and Tyga found themselves at the same time in the DJ booth.

The host of the evening would then take his microphone to announce “We have T-Raww and AE in the house”. T-Raww being Tyga’s nickname and AE that of his very good friend, Alexander Edwards, also known to be Cher’s companion.

Visibly upset at not having been cited, Travis Scott – who has harbored animosity against Tyga for years because of their mutual ex-partner, Kylie Jenner – then allegedly ripped Richie Akiva’s hands off the microphone. But before he could speak (or sing), Alexander Edward allegedly challenged him by shouting “Goosebumps,” reports “Page Six.”

“The models were flying everywhere in the melee”

The American media, which obtained videos of the altercation, says that Travis Scott then threw himself at “AE” and that a fight broke out. “Travis was the aggressor,” says a person present at the party. “He and his team were neurotic, erratic and crazy. To be honest, he was looking to pick a fight with anyone. » Result: punches started raining down, “models were flying everywhere in the melee” and “someone was hit with an ice bucket”.

But if Travis Scott would have gone so far as to threaten Tyga’s security with death, the rapper would not have moved from the DJ booth, keeping a “relaxed” air and not getting involved in the fight. And the altercation would have finally ended with the intervention of the security service of the evening, the departure of Travis Scott and his team, as well as the return to the dance floor of Tyga, Alexander Edward and Cher.
