- Kendall Jenner and Emily Ratajkowski have reportedly been sued for promoting the Fyre Festival.
- Migos, Blink-182, Lily Yachty and Pusha T were also named in the lawsuit.
It has been two years since the disaster that was the Fyre festival, but the aftermath is still being released in the courts. Earlier this year it was reported that Kendall Jenner and the talent agency representing Bella Hadid and Hailey Baldwin were expected to receive lawsuits as part of an effort to find out what happened to the million dollars spent on the festival, which included paying fees to the models that helped to market the event.
But it looks like it was just the beginning—E! News reports that, according to court documents, "Kendall Jenner, Emily Ratajkowski and more stars are officially sued to get back money allegedly paid to them for their role in promoting the infamous event."
The event's manager, Gregory Messer, filed suit in New York's US Bankruptcy Court this week, "trying to recover money paid to talent agencies, artists, salespeople and other entities involved in the marketing and failed performance of the Fyre Festival."
In the lawsuit, Gregory states that Kendall (who was paid $ 275,000 for a single entry, btw) did not disclose to followers that she was paid to promote the Fyre festival. He also claims that Kendall "deliberately led some members of the public and ticket buyers to believe" Kanye West would perform at the festival because her record referred to her "GOOD Music Family" and that "this behavior shows a clear lack of good faith from Jenner."
Documents also appear to show that Emily was paid $ 299,000 for her promotion of the festival, and that Emily, like Kendall, failed to state that she was paid for her Fyre Festival services.
And it's not just Emily and Kendall who are named in the lawsuit – artists who would appear at the festival like Migos, Blink-182, Lily Yachty and Pusha T "were also hit by complaints."
At the moment it is not clear what will happen for the Fyre Festival in bankruptcy courts, but I personally just hope that these trials may lead to a third documentary!
