Ja Rule Fyre Festival Facing $100M Lawsuit
And a famous lawyer who is behind the box.
Platinum-selling recording artist Ja Rule has had his share of adverse shocks to their industry than the strength from his very public back and forth with a (then) less popular Queens behemoth, 50 Cent. The dispute, which took place in the wax and on the street, it was the beginning of a downward slope. However, this past weekend's disastrous Fyre Festival could be the biggest obstacle to the rapper career. And I don't think 50 has ceased this opportunity to jab his rival to pass.
What was announced as cash, high-level festival that boasted a line-up that includes G. O. O. D Music, Migos, Lil Yachty, and more, ended up as nothing more than a sea of tents, comically terrible food, and a lot of chain millennials who had dropped anywhere from $1,000 to $12,000 for tickets. Those who arrived on Friday for two days of luxury in the Bahamas getaway discovered that the site was far from ready and that the festival had been postponed indefinitely. Trapped without money — as it was all a useless bracelet — that would be the concert attendees to the lack of water, meager rations, and no power, tried to get out of the country leading to bottlenecks and grounded flights.
Apart from a warranty for the life of the meme in Fyre of the Festival costs, possibly becoming the punchline or an example for every bad gig for the next century, and the current idea that someone is interested in the next edition of the festival, although it's not going to be dramatic financial consequences. Attorney Mark Geragos, whose notable clients include Chris Brown and Michael Jackson, has presented a proposal for a $100 million class-action lawsuit against the organizers of the festival. Ben Meiselas, who works for Geragos firm, shared the details of the case on Twitter. The demand, in fact, the lists of Jeffrey Atkins and his business partner, Billy McFarland, as defendants against the allegations of fraud and breach of contract.
