Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner & More Face Subpoenas For Fyre Festival Involvement

The aim is to find out exactly where the $26 million McFarland raised from investors went, subpoenas have reportedly been signed off for talent agencies who represent some of the artists booked for the festival. The paper reports Messner is attempting to account for $5.2 million of the estimated $26 million in investor funds McFarland is believed to have spent ahead of the doomed festival.

A NY judge granted an ex-parte order on Monday morning that was seeking subpoenas for Kendall and other who helped build hype around the ill-fated festival in the Bahamas. The other models may be involved through a subpoena sent to DNA Model Management and IMG Models, agencies which respectively received USA $299,000 and $1.2 million from MacFarland.

They claim the event bore no resemblance to the event conjured up by Fyre's "glossy" marketing and was instead an "unplanned, unorganized, disaster-stricken area" that organizers continued promoting until the day some of the 7,000 expected attendees began to arrive on the island.

CNN has reached out to IMG, DNA Models, and a spokeswoman for Jenner for comment and has not heard back.

Kendall was one of a number of high-profile beauties who promoted the ill-fated Fyre, receiving what is thought to have been a $250,000-payment in January 2017.

Not only did the models partake in the commercial, but many of them also received a lump sum of money for sharing a Fyre Festival-sponsored Instagram post.

The goal of the subpoenas is to determine what happened to the millions of dollars McFarland raised from investors, a collective $26 million, to finance the festival.

The Fyre Festival is pretty much all anyone's been talking about this month after the release of Netflix and Hulu's documentaries on the failed 2017 festival. "I initially trusted this would be an unbelievable & memorable experience for all of us, which is why I agreed to do one promotion...not knowing about the disaster that was to come..."

In the fallout, festival organiser Billy McFarland pleaded guilty to wire fraud charges relating to the festival and in July pleaded guilty to various fraud charges stemming from a separate ticket selling operation, and sentenced to six years in federal prison.

"I am incredibly sorry for my collective actions and will right the wrongs I have delivered to my family, friends, partners, associates and, you, the general public", he said.
