Kendall Jenner has reached a settlement in a lawsuit that pertained to her involvement with the legendarily disastrous Fyre Festival. Specifically, she has settled over the charge that she promoted the festival on her Instagram page in a photo that has since been deleted. It’s also worth noting is that her IG post contained no disclosure that she was being paid to put it up.
The case was being weighed by a bankruptcy court in New York. As a condition of this settlement, Jenner has agreed to pay $90,000, according to court documents reviewed by the website Women’s Wear Daily. Considering she was paid a reported $275,000 for the post (as per court documents), it could’ve been a lot worse.
Jenner was not the only famous person being sued, as Emily Ratajkowski, Migos, Pusha-T, and Lil Yachty have also found themselves being named in similar suits over their promotion of the fest on social media.
Last year, Jenner talked about her involvement, and also claimed that she was unaware of what a trainwreck scam it would turn out to be. “You get reached out to by people to, whether it be to promote or help or whatever, and you never know how these things are going to turn out, sometimes it’s a risk,” she said to The New York Times. “I definitely do as much research as I can, but sometimes there isn’t much research you can do because it’s a starting brand and you kind of have to have faith in it and hope it will work out the way people say it will. You never really know what’s going to happen.”
