Yesterday, a Fyre Festival trustee filed lawsuits against Blink-182, Kendall Jenner, Emily Ratajkowski and other modeling agencies demanding that they return the money that they were paid for promoting or playing the failed festival.
As Variety reported, the trustee wants Blink-182 to return the $500,000 headline fee. The band, featuring Mark Hoppus, Travis Barker, and Matt Skiba, pulled out of the festival shortly before the scandal. Hoppus said that the group “had indications kind of early on that there were problems.”

The trustee is also seeking $275,308 from Jenner and $300,000 from Ratajkowski. The lawsuit is seeking a collective $935,000 from Creative Artists Agency and ICM Partners.
Currently, Fyre Festival co-founder Billy McFarland is serving a six-year sentence for multiple fraud charges. Two hit documentaries were released about the failed festival and Seth Rogen and The Lonely Island are also reportedly working on a movie about the festival.
