The aftermath of Fyre Festival is getting even messier. Variety reports that Gregory Messer, Fyre Media's bankruptcy trustee, is suing a slew of celebrities and talent agencies in an attempt to claw back millions in cash paid out by the failed music festival.

The lawsuit mentions models Kendall Jenner and Emily Ratajkowski and performers Migos, Pusha-T, Lil Yachty and Blink-182, amongst others. The suit claims the payments made to these celebrities and their respective agencies were part of McFarland's elaborate "scheme to defraud investors, and therefore should be voided."

Jenner and Ratajkowski are being sued for $275,000 and $300,000, respectively, over paid Instagram posts promoting the festival and are accused of displaying “clear lack of good faith,” because they did not disclose that they were paid for their posts. Messer is also seeking the return of over $2 million from talent agencies, representing the likes of Lil Yachty, Migos, Rae Sremmurd, Pusha-T, Skepta, Desiigner and Tyga.

Earlier this year Kendall Jenner spoke out about her involvement in the festival. The other defendants have yet to comment.
