Ja Rule Better Start Rapping Again, He’s Getting Sued for $100M Over That Fyre Festival Fiasco

I bet this bankrupts Ja Rule. The rapper recently decided to put on the shitshow that was the Fyre Festival. Rich festival goers paid $12,000 a ticket for luxury living in the Bahamas and a whole bunch of bands. Instead, they got locked inside auditoriums and ate cheese sandwiches. Womp womp.

Now, Mark Geragos, fancy pants lawyer who’s represented Michael Jackson and Winona Ryder, filed a $100 million lawsuit on behalf of Daniel Jung. In it, he names co-founders Ja Rule, Billy McFarland and their company, Fyre Media, as defendants. Ja Rule’s about to take it up the butt big time.

Jung’s suit comes down to three points. First, Ja Rule and McFarland knew about the risks before the event. As proof, VIPs were warned not to go to the event because it was becoming evident that everything would go to hell. Blink 182 cancelled because Fyre Festival couldn’t provide a quality setup. One behind the scenes source said about the A-listers’ warning:

“They called all the A-list names and the modeling agencies and told them not to come,” says the source. “They were just like, ‘Oh, come next weekend when all the kinks have been worked out.’ This was before the chaos even started.”

The suit also alleges that the accommodations put festival goers at risk.

Jung alleges luggage was dumped into the sand from a shipping container. So do the suit’s complaints about the “FEMA tents” for accommodation, wild animals roaming the grounds, heinous food and lack of security and medical staff.

Hello, you got FEMA tents right? When you think about it, Fyre Festival was a disaster and FEMA tents are made for disasters. So, it kinda all worked out. Plus, wild animals roaming around means food for everyone! Just whittle down the nearest palm tree and start shanking that boar.

Finally, the suit claims the organizers didn’t provide an escape plan. Haha. Even if they did have one, it would’ve been hard to escape with security locking people in auditoriums.

And when they did try to get everyone to escape, they still couldn’t get it right.

Ja Rule is fucked.
