Models, Musicians Face Lawsuits Over Fyre Festival Payments

Bankruptcy trustee Gregory Messer is suing Models Kendall Jenner and Emily Ratajkowski and performers Migos, Pusha T, and Lil Yachty in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for New York. Messer has been investigating who was paid in the lead-up to the 2017 event, Fyre Festival, that was supposed to take place over two weekends in the Bahamas. The lawsuits seek to recover money paid to talent agencies, performers they represent, and some vendors that were paid to charter musicians to the festival on private jets and yachts. William “Billy” McFarland and his company, Fyre Media Inc., were also sued for over $14 million allegedly transferred to him or to Fyre Media from its bankrupt subsidiary formed to promote the festival. McFarland is currently serving a six-year prison sentence after pleading guilty to fraud charges.
