Kendall Jenner has agreed to pay $90 000 to the trustee in Fyre festival bankruptcy case after the trustee sued to recoup the festival’s creditors.
Kendall is finally putting this whole fiasco behind her as she has agreed to pay some of the money she was paid to promote the colossally disastrous event.
According to the lawsuit, the trustee claimed that the supermodel was paid $275 000 to promote Fyre on her Instagram account.
The trustee also claimed that money constituted a fraudulent transfer because she was paid to promote a festival that the organizer could not pull off.
The music festival took place in Bahamas in 2017,and people paid large amounts of money for what was supposed to be the ultimate luxury experience but images and video clips shared on social media proved otherwise.
Tons of folks plunked down between $1,200 and $100 000 only to be forced to sleep in tents or out at the beach, instead of luxurious amenities McFarland bragged out.
Billy McFarland who was the mastermind behind it all hired a gang of models to hype up the event. Bella Hadid,Hailey Bieber were among the other models hired.
Billy was sentenced to six years in prison, while many famous faces who promoted the event were supposedly paid to perform were sued. Big names include the Migos,Pusha T and others.
The court documents obtained by the publication says, in a since deleted Instagram post, Kendall wrote “So hyped to announce G.O.O.D music family as the first headliners for @fyrefestival. Use promo code KJONFYRE”
The lawsuit claimed that the model intentionally lead certain members of the public and ticket purchasers to believe that Kanye West would be performing at the festival.
