It has been reported that Kendall Jenner and other celebs are allegedly being investigated over their involvement in the Fyre Festival.

Fyre Festival was supposed to be a luxury music festival, but ended up being a huge disaster which left thousands of people being scammed out of their money.

Netflix and Hulu have both recently released documentaries showing some shocking revelations.

According to Billboard, trustee Gregory Messer, is looking into Kendall Jenner’s involvement in the scam, as she was paid $250,000 to promote the festival.

In January 2017, the supermodel shared discount codes for tickets on her social media and shared a post on Instagram that claimed that Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music family would be performing at the festival.

The Instagram post has now been deleted, but has also come under speculation from the Federal Trade Commission, as she reportedly did not mention that she was being paid for the post.

Other celebs that may be brought on front of a judge over their involvement in the festival’s promotion are Emily Ratajkowski, Hailey Baldwin, Soulja Boy, and Waka Flocka Flame.

It has been reported that the festival organiser, Billy McFarland, spent over $10 million in the weeks and months leading up to the festival – with a bankruptcy agency now investigating where these payments went.
