Kendall Jenner to Be Subpoenaed Over Fyre Festival Payments

Kendall Jenner & More Models Facing Subpoenas Over Millions In Fyre Festival Payments! Kendall Jenner, Soulja Boy & more may soon face subpoenas over Fyre Festival payments

The ruling came as part of a bankruptcy case involving the ill-fated music festival that took place in the Bahamas in April 2017. As one of several professional event planners involved in the disastrous Fyre Festival, King says he was at one point asked to go perform oral sex on the Bahamian head of customs so that trucks of Evian water bottles would be granted passage into the site.

Fyre Festival's bankruptcy trustee, Gregory Messer, filed an ex-parte order in bankruptcy court in order to examine McFarland's dealings with the agencies and it was approved on Monday.

According to U.S. media, IMG Models, which represents models Hadid and Hailey Bieber, and DNA Model Management, which represents Emily Ratajkowski, could be forced to reveal details about the payments they received from the festival's founder and promoter Billy McFarland after a judge issued subpoenas as part of Fyre's bankruptcy filing.

If you, like Chrissy Teigen, can't get enough of the Fyre Festival drama, it looks like the recent Hulu and Netflix documentaries have led to another chapter in this sorry saga - the models who participated in the very first Fyre Festival promotional video are being asked to participate in the ongoing investigation.

Kendall Jenner Inc., which reps Jenner, obviously, was also subpoenaed thanks to a quarter-of-a-million-dollar payment.

It sounds like the fallout from the Fyre Festival is just getting started. A separate subpoena was requested for DNA Model Management, the agency that represents Emily Ratajkowski and was paid $299,000 by McFarland in March 2017.

Not only did the models partake in the commercial, but many of them also received a lump sum of money for sharing a Fyre Festival-sponsored Instagram post. Prosecutors said McFarland defrauded investors and ticket vendors of $26 million.

In October 2018, a federal judge gave the creator of the highly publicized Fyre Festival in the Bahamas a six-year prison term. "As a result of this advertising and promotional blitz, thousands of people purchased tickets to the Festival".

Ja Rule and Billy McFarland created the "music festival".

While we wouldn't exactly call him a breakout star, the internet has become weirdly obsessed with Andy King, the Fyre Festival event manager who features prominently in Fyre, Netflix's revealing documentary on the failed festival.

Messer is looking to subpoena IMG Models, who represent Bella Hadid, Hailey Bieber and Elsa Hosk, over payments the agency received totalling US$1.2 million from McFarland between November 2016 and February 2017.
