Kendall Jenner Settles $90,000 Lawsuit For Promoting Fyre Festival

Model and influencer Kendall Jenner agrees to pay $90,000 for the settlement in promoting the scandalous Fyre Festival. Reportedly, Kendall along with other various influencers was paid a large amount of money to endorse the humongous festival, however, the festival never happened. Kendall was sued by U.S. Bankruptcy Court back in 2019 by Gregory Messer, who argued that Jenner did not only fail to disclose that she would be paid for endorse Fyre Festival, but that she led them to believe the festival will be filled with top models on an 'exotic private island with first-class culinary experiences and a luxury atmosphere. While promoting the festival on her social media, Kendall even promised her followers that her brother-in-law, Kanye West, would be headlining the event. Along with prominent influencers and models, Messer’s lawsuit also includes major talent agencies too. Fyre Festival promised their attendees a two weekends-long party full of great music and models like Kendall Jenner, Hailey Baldwin, Bella Hadid, turns out the festival was a biggest disaster. A Netflix documentary shows the ground reality of the biggest festival that never happened and how the organisers ripped off all the attendees, as none of the promised entertainers showed. Its founder, Billy McFarland, is currently serving a six-year prison sentence for multiple fraudulent schemes.
