If you thought we’d seen the end of Fyre Festival, think again because it looks like a bankruptcy trustee is about to sue the pants off everyone from Kendall Jenner to Blink-182 for their involvement in the event.
According to People, Kendall Jenner, Emily Ratajkowski, Migos, Pusha T, Blink-182 and Lil Yachty were all served lawsuits on Wednesday in an attempt to recover money paid to influencers and performers for their promotion of the failed event.
Apparently being involved in the huge mess isn’t punishment enough, because now they’re trying to take back the $275,000USD Kendall Jenner got paid for those promotional snaps.
“You get reached out to by people to, whether it be to promote or help or whatever, and you never know how these things are going to turn out, sometimes it’s a risk,” Jenner told the New York Times in April. “I definitely do as much research as I can, but sometimes there isn’t much research you can do because it’s a starting brand and you kind of have to have faith in it and hope it will work out the way people say it will.”
The lawsuit also alleges that Emily Ratajkowski’s management agency was paid a whopping $299,000 by the festival.
According to the complaint, the payments received by Jenner and Ratajkowski were part of a “scheme to defraud investors, and therefore should be voided.” Additionally, they’re in hot water for not revealing their paid affiliation with the festival, allegedly not popping the #spon on their snaps.
In total, the lawsuit is targeting a number of agencies and individuals for over $2 million worth of payments.
Festival organiser Billy McFarland was also sued for a whopping $14 million, which has to sting when you’re already serving six years in prison for fraud charges. He’s currently serving time at FCI Otisville in New York, where he’s befriended Jersey Shore’s Mike “The Situation”.
We’re yet to hear from Kendall Jenner, Emily Ratajkowski or any of the performers involved in the lawsuit.
