Kendall Jenner has been ordered to pay $90,000 to settle a lawsuit over her involvement in the Fyre Festival scandal.
According to documents obtained by E! News, the KUWTK star has agreed to pay back just a fraction of the $275,000 she was allegedly paid to to promote the festival back in 2017.
In August 2019, the event’s trustee Gregory Messer filed a complaint in New York’s U.S. Bankruptcy Court to seek the recovery of money paid to talent agencies, performers, vendors and other entities involved in the failed festival.
Kendall was among a group of celebrities that were paid to promote the event on social media, alongside Emily Ratajkowski and other top models.
A since-deleted post shared on Kendall’s Instagram feed was captioned: “So hyped to announce my G.O.O.D Music Family as the first headliners for @fyrefestival. Use my promo code KJONFYRE for the next 24 hours to get on the list for the artists and talents afterparty on Fyre Cay.”
The lawsuit accused Kendall of “intentionally [leading] certain members of the public and ticket purchasers to believe” Kanye West, who founded the G.O.O.D. music label, was set perform at the festival.
The lawsuit stated: “This conduct demonstrates a clear lack of good faith on Jenner’s part.”
Kendall also received a slap on the wrist from the Federal Trade Commission for not clearly stating she was paid for the post.
