The Fyre Festival Dubbed A Ponzi Scheme In New Legal Docs! Ruh Roh!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal Matters

The Fyre Festival was supposedly a Ponzi scheme.

The Fyre Festival has been called a lot of things, and we can officially add Ponzi scheme to the list!

A class action lawsuit filed against the festival organizers has reached 300 people, according to attorney Mark Geragos, and new legal documents claim that concertgoers suffered from bacterial infections and heat exhaustion, among other things.

According to TMZ, the lawsuit also claims the entire thing was a Ponzi scheme targeting "seemingly successful millennials," and that organizers knew it would be a disaster but wanted to screw people out of as much money as possible.

The lawsuit demands $100 million in damages.

Eek! This just keeps getting worse, doesn't it?

Here's hoping Ja Rule and fellow organizer Billy McFarland have a lot of spare dough lying around. And they might, considering how much people paid to go to this charade.

More awful conditions are coming to light about the dumpster fire that was Ja Rule's Fyre Festival.

A class action lawsuit was filed against the rapper and co-organizer Billy McFarland after hundreds of rich millennials and influencers flocked to the island getaway to find a FEMA disaster site and no music awaiting them.

Now, we're finding out all those affluent concertgoers had to deal with some Guantanamo Bay-level treatment while trying to get back home.

In the $100 million lawsuit filed by lawyer Mark Geragos, festival goers were locked in the airport terminal for hours as passengers waited for a plane to take them back to the states.

Pictures obtained by TMZ show the exhausted travelers were trapped in the terminal like grass-fed cattle as security put a chain-link fence around the building to make sure they didn't escape.

Geragos claims that some of the weary passengers even passed out from lack of water and the heat. And we thought no luxury cabanas were hard living conditions!

Feral dogs roamed a landscape dotted with FEMA tents, and not the luxurious accommodations promised for the very expensive ticket price.

Well, before the smoke has even cleared (literally!), Ja Rule and partner Billy McFarland are getting sued for lying and fraud.

One unlucky attendee is attempting to put together a class-action lawsuit, and calling the festival a "get rich quick scam," alleging that Ja and Billy knew it was a disaster months beforehand.

The suit, filed by celeb lawyer Mark Geragos and obtained by TMZ, claims that

Chris Brown's lawyer is not backing down!

On Friday, the Loyal singer's attorney Mark Geragos addressed a packed media room about the A-lister's recent arrest. As you surely know, the controversial celeb was booked on Tuesday for an assault with a deadly weapon charge after he allegedly threatened a woman, named Baylee Curran, with a firearm. Eek!

Still, it seems Mr. Brown's legal expert believes the accusations are false as he noted that this isn't the first time Rihanna's ex has had false allegations made against him. Huh.

Chris Brown's Attorney Claims The LAPD Found No Firearms In The Singer's Home Following Alleged Gun Incident

Filed under: Legal MattersChris BrownJewelryViolence

Chris Brown

Everyone is still trying to figure out exactly what went down at Chris Brown's LA home on Tuesday morning.

As you know, the controversial singer was arrested after a nine-hour standoff with police sparked by Baylee Curran's accusations that Chris threatened her with a gun after she admired some jewelry.

The 27-year-old has since vehemently denied the claims while possible cracks in Curran's story come to light.

As authorities continue to investigate the situation, the Loyal artist's attorney Mark Geragos told the LA Times that C.B. "cooperated fully" with police while slamming the former pageant queen's narrative about what went down:

"It has become apparent that the allegations are not just false but fabricated."

Kesha Is Appealing Her Injunction Ruling Against Dr. Luke

Filed under: Music MinuteLegal MattersKeshaControversy

See the argument HERE!

Kesha isn't done fighting.

On Monday, the pop powerhouse filed legal papers to take her battle with Dr. Luke — AKA Lukasz Gottwald — to an appeals court.

Last month, the blonde was denied her injunction bid to get out of her recording contract with the Sony producer, who she claims sexually assaulted and abused her.

The 29-year-old's lawyer, Mark Geragos, wrote in the docs that keeping his client in her contract is similar to slavery:

"First, the Court erred in basing its decision on its finding that Kesha could record without interference from Gottwald. Although it recognized that 'slavery was done away with a long time ago' and that '[y]ou can't force someone to work . . . in a situation in which they don't want to work,' the Court's ruling requiring Kesha to work for Gottwald's companies, purportedly without his involvement, does just that."

The attorney also explained that, if let out of her contract with her alleged abuser, Kesha could compensate Sony Music Entertainment for breaking her deal.

He argued that the judge didn't consider that alternative option would allow the singer to be free while also giving the music giant the ability to still get their money back, saying:

She couldn't do it without her fans!

Kesha has received a TON of support from fans and fellow artists after being denied her injunction bid last week to get out of her contract with Dr. Luke.

In support of the #FreeKesha movement, the Blow singer's fans protested outside Sony's New York City headquarters on Friday to boycott Dr. Luke's recording label Kemosabe Records.

And to thank her animals for their support during the ongoing legal battle, the pop star recorded a short clip of herself singing a new song (sort of)!
