Kendall Jenner agrees to pay a portion of her paid posting fee.
The suit also alleged that Jenner, who has 129 million Instagram followers, attempted to dupe potential ticket buyers by insinuating that her brother-in-law, Kanye West, would perform at the event.
After the revelation of Kendall Jenner‘s $275,000 posting fee, Jenner agreed to pay $90,000 towards the settlement of the Fyre Festival disaster. The suit brought by attorney Gregory Messer in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in New York claimed that in the social media post (since deleted) Jenner failed to disclose to her followers that she was being paid to promote the Fyre Festival, leading them to believe it would be “filled with famous models on an ‘exotic private island with first-class culinary experiences and a luxury atmosphere.'”
Trustee Messer is attempting to claw back $14.4 million paid out by Fyre Media and founder Billy McFarland, who is currently serving a six-year federal prison sentence for bilking investors out of $26 million to stage the over-the-top festival with rapper Ja Rule with the help of models and influencers who promised lavish accommodations a private island.
