Kendall Jenner to Pay $90,000 in Fyre Festival Lawsuit Settlement”

Kendall Jenner has agreed to pay $90,000 to settle a lawsuit due to her involvement in the doomed Fyre Festival.

The super model was sued past year for her involvement in the disastrous music festival.

Back in 2017, along with a number of celebrities including Emily Ratajkowski and Bella Hadid, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star agreed to promote the infamous Fyre Festival in an Instagram post.

According to E! News, the deleted caption on the post read: So hyped to announce my G.O.O.D Music Family as the first headliners for @fyrefestival.

Billy McFarland, the festival's founder, is now serving jail time for multiple accounts of fraud and the festival organizers are facing multiple lawsuits, while lawyers representing the investors claim Jenner "intentionally led certain members of the public and ticket purchasers to believe" that her brother-in-law Kanye West would be performing.

Hundreds of thousands of dollars were paid to music acts and models to appear at the Bahamas-based festival, which was slated to launch in April 2017.

According to a 2019 lawsuit filed by Gregory Messer, a trustee of the Estate of Fyre Festival LLC, Jenner was paid $275,000 to post about the event on social media, making her millions of followers believe it "would be filled with famous models on an exotic private island with 'first-class culinary experiences and a luxury atmosphere'".

It was further revealed in the documents that Jenner had claimed that Kanye West was also scheduled to perform at the event.

A representative for Jenner had no comment. As part of his plea, he agreed to a forfeiture order of $26 million. McFarland pleaded guilty to wire fraud charges in March 2018 and was sentenced to six years in prison. News a year ago states documents from New York's Bankruptcy Court show the event's trustee also sued model Emily Ratajkowski, rappers Migos, Lil Yachty, Pusha T and band Blink 182.

"You never really know what's going to happen", she added.
