What is Travis Scott's real name?

The 'Goosebumps' rapper is best known by his stage name, Travis Scott, but he was born Jacques Berman Webster II.

With the arrival of his baby girl Stormi Webster, many fans wondered where her surname came from and why she wasn't named Stormi Scott.

In an interview with Grantland in 2014, Travis revealed where his stage name stems from, opening up about his uncle of the.

He said his uncle was his "favourite relative" and he "looked up to him and sh*t."

Why was he arrested and did he spend any time in jail?

Just 10 minutes into Look Mom I Can Fly, viewers see Travis getting arrested, as police handcuff the rapper and take him to the county jail in Rogers, Arkansas.

His arrest came after an incident at one of his concerts in May 2017, which saw Scott encouraging fans to rush at the stage, ignoring security protocols.

The stampede led to "several" injuries and Travis being charged with inciting a riot, disorderly conduct and endangering the welfare of a minor.

Scott pled guilty to the charges just two months before his daughter Stormi was born.

While he didn't have to attend court, he was charged $640 for court costs, a further $6,000 to two injured people.

His lawyer said: “[Travis] felt bad about anyone being injured and was always willing to pay the restitution.”
