Jenner, 24, has denied any liability related to the lawsuit but a settlement was reached after mediation with trustee Gregory Messer late past year.
Billy McFarland, the festival's founder, is now serving jail time for multiple accounts of fraud and the festival organizers are facing multiple lawsuits, while lawyers representing the investors claim Jenner "intentionally led certain members of the public and ticket purchasers to believe" that her brother-in-law Kanye West would be performing.
The 24-year-old model was sued in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in NY in August 2019 by Gregory Messer, who is seeking the recovery of money paid to celebrities, vendors, talent agencies and others involved in the marketing and the ultimate failure of Fyre Festival.
According to Messer, who is still recuperating lost funds from investing in the festival, Jenner had been given $275,000 to promote the event on her widely-followed Instagram to give out the perception that the event "would be filled with famous models on an exotic private island with 'first-class culinary experiences and a luxury atmosphere'". Given that the Fyre Festival founder, Billy McFarland, is now serving a six-year prison sentence for multiple fraudulent schemes, Jenner's choice to distance herself from all things Fyre is likely a smart one. He must also pay restitution of the more than $26 million he raised for the event.
The Fyre Festival was heavily staged by McFarland and rapper Ja Rule but went disastrously wrong.
"You get reached out to by people to, whether it be to promote or help or whatever, and you never know how these things are going to turn out, sometimes it's a risk", Jenner told The New York Times a year ago. In reality, West had never been booked to perform at all.
