I Didn’t Delete Trans Model
From My Album Cover

Travis Scott had nothing to do with editing a famous transgender model off his latest album cover, because the artwork he received is exactly what he released … so say sources close to the rapper.
We’re told the final version of Travis’ “Astroworld” album cover was exactly what he got from artist David LaChapelle … and it did not include the shot of trans model Amanda Lepore in the area to the left of Scott’s mouth.
Translation: the accusations of transphobia against Travis are inaccurate, because he didn’t even know about the version that included Lepore.
As we reported … Amanda wasn’t mad about not making the final cut of the album artwork, and joked she was simply too good looking for it and upstaged everyone else.
What’s interesting — LaChapelle echoed what Lepore said and insisted her omission had “nothing to do with hating” … but failed to explain why the edit happened. Now that Scott’s denying he had anything to do with it … LaChapelle might have some more explaining to do.
We reached out to him multiple times … so far, no word back.
