As if things couldn’t get worse for Ja… A new lawsuit has been filed targeting the chaos that was “Fyre Fest.”
John Girardi, a Los Angeles attorney, has filed a lawsuit representing three of the concert-goers who were misled by the festival’s promotional tactics. Specifically, the lawsuit claims the planners of the concert; Ja Rule, co-founder Billy McFarland, and their company have committed “breach of contract, negligent misrepresentation, and fraud.”
The lawsuit also targets the promoters, including Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid, because of their lack of disclosure to their massive amounts of followers who they advertised the concert too. According to the Federal Trade Commission rules, the promoters should have informed their social media audience that they were being paid to sponsor “Fyre Festival”.
The aims of the lawsuit, according to Girardi, are to prevent this company from putting on any further events, and for “restitution, punitive damages and disgorgement of any profits.” They also aim to make this suit a class action that can be joined by anyone who purchased tickets to the event.
