Travis Scott is firing back at accusations that he's profiting off his fans' trauma. The 30-year-old rapper is allegedly not adding any zeros to his bank account from his partnership with BetterHelp, which provides Astroworld concertgoers a month of free therapy, despite one therapist claiming otherwise.

According to the online therapy website, there is no "sponsorship or brand deal between BetterHelp and Travis Scott." BetterHelp also confirmed that none of Travis' fans, who decide to use their services, will automatically be billed at the end of the free month, reports The Sun.

The company's CEO Alon Matas fired off a letter after a popular therapist on TikTok called out Travis and claimed he had proof the rapper was profiting off the partnership.

"BetterHelp and Travis together will cover the costs to provide a month of free therapy by licensed therapists so people in need can get professional help," Matas wrote in the letter to BuzzFeed.

He also put a kibosh on the idea that BetterHelp was "profiting by selling people's data to advertisers or third parties" and insisted Travis is not getting paid in any way.

It is being reported that Cactus Jack, Travis' record label, is covering the therapy costs.

While Travis might not be making a profit off his fans' emotions in the aftermath of the Astroworld tragedy, many don't believe the rapper is doing enough to help. Social media users are slamming Kylie Jenner's baby daddy, labeling his efforts as "inadequate" and "sickening."

Popular YouTuber Anthony Fantano asked, "Did we just go from a tragedy to a BetterHelp brand partnership?"
