Kendall Jenner and Other Top Models to Be Subpoenaed Over the Fyre Festival

By TheBlast Staff

Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, Hailey Bieber and other models who promoted the Fyre Festival will be served subpoenas to testify about their role in the infamous disaster.

The trustee overseeing the bankruptcy of the Fyre Festival was granted an order on Monday to serve subpoenas to Kendall Jenner's company, IMG Models, DNA Model Management, and other companies that were paid by Billy McFarland.

In the request for the subpoenas, the trustee described the proposed "examinees" by saying they are "either a company or individual who provided promotional services, advertisements, social media posts, musical performances, logistical support, vendor services, or guidance to the Debtor in connection with the preparation for the Festival."

The documents state that Kendall Jenner was paid $275,000 in her role as "Model/Actress; Social Media Celebrity Influencer." IMG Models, which represents Hadid and Bieber, was paid $1,214,976.46.

In total, the trustee is looking to account for $5,289,810.14.

McFarland was sentenced to six years in prison for his role in the failed festival after McFarland pleaded guilty to two counts of wire fraud back in March 2018.

Prosecutors were seeking an eight-year prison sentence but the judge could have hit him with a 20-year sentence.

McFarland was previously ordered to pay $26 million in restitution for his role in the Fyre Festival that took place in the spring of 2017.
