Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, Chanel Iman and more may be subpoenaed for an investigation soon. The famous models were all part of a plot to influence followers to go to the ill-fated Fyre Festival.
Now that Netflix and Hulu have both dropped their respective documentaries, the social media-breaking, failed Coachella wannabe, is under a microscope yet again. Although prime manipulator Billy McFarland is currently serving his 6-year jail sentence, the courts want to know exactly where the $26 million that was raised for the fraud event went.
Influencers like Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, Chanel Iman, Elsa Hosk, Hailey Bieber and more were all (hopefully) unknowingly involved in selling the dream of a music festival held on Pablo Escobar’s old island.
Some of the models traveled to the Bahamas to shoot promotional video while others participated in posted an orange block on their Instagram page to direct followers to the Fyre Festival account where hopefuls snagged a ticket package to an event that went terribly wrong.
Apparently, a Fyre Media bankruptcy trustee is attempting to launch their own investigation as to how the funds were spent since Billy allegedly didn’t do a good job of keep track of everything.
This also comes after Ja Rule took to social media to defend himself after people who watched the programs felt that he should also be in jail.
The musician tweeted: “NOT MY FAULT….but I’m taking responsibility”
“I too was hustled, scammed, bamboozled, hood winked, lead astray!!!”
50 Cents rival also slammed people for taking sides and placing blame after seeing a few hours of footage where it made viewers believe that Ja Rule and Billy McFarland were working together to lead the music fans astray.
Billy wrote an apology letter to the victims from jail.
Other than Billy McFarland, who do you think should have received part of the blame for the madness?
