Fyre Festival gained a lot of buzz in 2017 for its heavy advertising and bold promises of a luxury getaway with A-list entertainment.

The highly-anticipated spectacle, put on by hip-hop artist Ja Rule, garnered global media attention after it never actually came to life.

In August 2019, Kendall was sued by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in New York – who has been recovering money for investors that lost money due to the festival.

In court documents obtained by TMZ, the lawsuit claimed that money constituted a fraudulent transfer as she was paid to promote something the organizers never pulled off.

The judge in the Keeping Up with the Kardashian star’s case has not yet signed off on the terms of the settlement, the outlet said.

Other stars involved in the court drama include model Emily Ratajkowski and rappers Migos, Pusha T and Lil Yachty.

Fyre Fest was co-founded by Billy McFarland, who was convicted in March 2018 of defrauding more than $27 million from investors through marketing and fake tickets.

He is currently serving a six year sentence in federal prison after pleading guilty to two counts of wire fraud.

The outlet also alleges that the lawsuit states DNA Model Management – which represents Emily – was paid $299,000 by Fyre Media.

Hip-hop stars Migos, Lil Yachty, and Rae Sremmurd’s representatives, International Creative Management, was allegedly paid $350,000 for their promise performance.

Rappers Pusha T, Desiigner and Tyga were also reportedly named in the document, which claimed their management Nue Agency was given $730,000 for their appearance.
