Ja Rule probably regrets aligning himself with the Fyre Festival right about now.


The disastrous festival has resulted in social media humiliation, lawsuits, and now … being harassed by debt collectors.


The festival, created by Ja Rule and Billy McFarland, was apparently funded by $3 million in loans by a company who says they have not heard from either one about them about when they will be repaid.

Documents reveal the two were supposed to be paying back the loan weekly, but the lender claims they haven’t received a dime since April 21.


The lender says now the loan has gone into default, so not only will Ja and Billy owe the $3 million, but also interest.
