Remember that mad craic?

Fyre Festival will forever go down as the worst festival, but now the models and celebs that promoted the festival are being sued!

The documentary came out a few months ago and gave us all insight into the festival disaster that brought us this viral tweet;

The aftermath of Fyre Festival is still ongoing in the courts.

Earlier this year it was reported that Kendall Jenner and the talent agency that represents Bella Hadid and Hailey Baldwin were expected to receive subpoenas as part of an effort to find out what happened to the millions of dollars that were spent on the festival, which included the fee paid to the models who helped promote the event.

But it looks like that was just the beginning—E! News is reporting that according to court documents,

"Kendall Jenner, Emily Ratajkowski and more stars are officially being sued to recover money allegedly paid to them for their role in promoting the infamous event."

 

Gregory Messer, the event's trustee, filed documents in New York's U.S. Bankruptcy Court this week and is;

"seeking to recover money paid to talent agencies, performers, vendors and other entities involved in the marketing and failed execution of Fyre Festival."

 

 

In the lawsuit, Gregory states that Kendall didn't disclose to followers that she was being paid to promote the Fyre Festival.

He is also alleging that Kendall "intentionally led certain members of the public and ticket purchasers to believe" Kanye West would perform at the festival because her post referenced her "G.O.O.D. Music Family," and that "this conduct demonstrates a clear lack of good faith on Jenner's part."

Documents also show that Emily was paid $299,000 for her part in promoting the festival, and that like Kendall, Emily failed to indicate that she was being paid for her Fyre Festival posts.

Artists who were set to appear at the festival like Migos, Blink-182, Lily Yachty, and Pusha T "were also hit with complaints."

 

 

 

It's not clear what's going to happen for Fyre Festival in bankruptcy courts, hopefully, another juicy documentary!
