The trustee in charge of handling the Fyre Festival bankruptcy case has now filed 14 new lawsuits in an effort to recoup $14.4 million from talent agencies, transport companies, and celebrities, Billboard reports. Celebs involved include Kendall Jenner, Pusha T, Lil Yachty, Migos, Tyga, Rae Sremmurd, and Emily Ratajkowski.

The trustee of the bankruptcy case, Gregory Messer, and New York attorney, Fred Stevens, are working to trace money paid out to artists (via their respective talent agencies) who failed to turn up to the festival. They are also looking at the influencers and models who shared misleading promotion material. They hope to recover money owed to creditors and investors of the failed event.

Kendall Jenner, for example, was allegedly paid $275,000 for a single promo post. According to attorneys, Jenner intentionally misled her followers by implying that Kanye West would headline the event by making reference to her “G.O.O.D. Music Family.”

According to Rolling Stone, the suit against talent agency ICM centers around $350,000 for a headlining set from an artist with Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music, which could have been “Lil Yachty, and/or Migos, and/or (Rae) Sremmurd.” The suit against NUE seeks to recover $245,000 paid to Pusha T, $142,500 to Desiigner, and $112,500 to Tyga. And the suit against CAA alleges that Blink-182 was paid $500,000 and canceled at the last minute.

Matte Productions, which helped produce a Netflix documentary about Fyre Festival is also being sued. Matte teamed up with Jerry Media to produce Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened. The suit alleges that the company “used that footage to produce a profitable and popular documentary panning the Festival (without sharing any of the proceeds of that documentary with those victimized by McFarland).”

Billy McFarland is currently serving a six-year federal prison sentence for cheating investors out of $26 million for the disastrous festival. Meanwhile, his co-founder Ja Rule has been cleared of any wrongdoings.
