Kendall Jenner, Emily Ratajkowski sued over Fyre Festival disaster

Kendall Jenner is among a raft of celebrities being sued for their involvement in the infamous Fyre Festival debacle of 2017. 

The supermodel was one of several famous faces paid to promote the disastrous event, that saw revellers trapped on an island with limited access to food, shelter and water. 

According to E! News, Jenner, along with fellow model Emily Ratajkowski and musical acts like Blink-182 and Migos were hit with subpoenas. 

The complaints were filed this week in a US Bankruptcy Court by Gregory Messer, the event's trustee. 

Messer is seeking to recover funds paid to modelling agencies, performers and vendors that played a part in marketing the failed event. 

According to the lawsuit, Jenner was allegedly paid US $275,000 for a single social media post about Fyre Festival. The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star did not indicate to followers she had been compensated for promoting the gig. 

Ratajkowski was reportedly paid US$299,00 through her agents, DNA Model Management, for making at least one social media post. 

Billed as a luxury event in the Bahamas, Fyre Festival quickly devolved into chaos. Organiser Billy McFarland is serving 6 years jail-time for wire fraud, while rapper Ja Rule has yet to be charged for his involvement.
