And if you're in the mood to sift through the goings-on like we are, give our Insider Roundup a read for the scoop on why Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner got subpoenaed and more.
Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner and more facing subpoenas
Models and personalities Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Hailey Baldwin and more who were involved in the Fyre Festival promotional video are now facing subpoenas to explain the payment scheme the talents received from Fyre Media CEO Billy McFarland. In case you haven't heard of the disastrous event or have seen the Hulu and Netflix documentaries, Fyre Festival was supposed to be a high-profile luxury event to be held in an island in the Bahamas, complete with gourmet food and many VIP attendees. However, due to issues in security, accommodations and overall operations, the event did not happen. It resulted in a myriad of lawsuits on the account of defrauding ticket buyers and an estimated total of USD100 million damages caused. Yikes!
