Kendall Jenner has agreed to pay back $90,000 she was paid to promote the infamous Fyre Festival.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the reality star hashed out a deal with the trustee presiding over Fyre Festival’s bankruptcy.

The documents note, “The Defendants shall pay the total sum of $90,000.00 (the “Settlement Payment”), as full and final settlement and complete satisfaction of any claims the Trustee has against the Defendants.”

Back in August, the trustee sued Kendall, along with other celebrities, for the return of money they were paid to promote or perform at the event. The lawsuits were brought in an effort to repay the many creditors screwed out of money.

The original lawsuit against Kendall demanded she cough up the entire $275,000 she was paid to endorse the festival on Instagram. The settlement means she gets to keep $185,000 paid to her for social media promotion. The settlement reads, “The Defendants shall pay the total sum of $90,000.00 (the “Settlement Payment”), as full and final settlement and complete satisfaction of any claims the Trustee has against the Defendants.”

A judge has yet to rule on the motion to approve the settlement.

As The Blast first reported, earlier this month, Rae Sremmurd’s Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi settled a similar lawsuit. They agreed to pay back $18,000 to the bankruptcy trustee. The hip-hop group was paid $100,000 to perform at Fyre.

Earlier this year, Migos settled a separate case agreeing to pay back $30,000. They were also paid $100,000 to perform.

Blink 182, who was paid $500,000 to headline Fyre, are still facing a legal case over the money they were paid.

Fyre Festival head, Billy McFarland, is behind bars after being sentenced to six years in prison on fraud charges. He was ordered to pay $26 million in restitution once he checks out of prison.
