The “high-end” Fyre Festival has officially been postponed. The luxury gala, organized by Ja Rule, was supposed to begin today. Top models like Bella Hadid, Emily Ratajkowski, and Alessandra Ambrosio promoted the event late last year.
Kendall Jenner even posted on Instagram about the event, but as of today she had deleted it.
Fyre Festival called itself a “cultural moment created from [a] … blend of music, art and food.” The event was to be located on a private island in the Bahamas that was once owned by drug czar Pablo Escobar. Exclusive ticket packages were selling as high as $250,000.
