Ultimately, Fyre Festival founder Billy McFarland was found guilty of defrauding investors out of a total of $26 million, and subsequently issued a public apology from prison.
The Fyre Festival caterer who wasn't paid has raised more than $70,000 by donations.
Ja Rule wants everyone to know that he's only human, and if given the option the do right by the World, he'd never say never.
According to a report from Mashable.com, Ja Rule has claimed he was one of the victims of the Fyre Festival, rather than the perpetrator which led to hundreds of people landing in the Bahamas with expectations of a concert festival, but instead, getting hardly anything at all. Along with that, Ja said "I had an unbelievable vision to create a festival like NO OTHER!"
The documentary, Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened, carried interviews with a number of Fyre festival insiders who said they had warned McFarland multiple times that customers were being misled and they would not be able to stage the event.

It was a gutsy win for the young Wildcats, who led by as many as 17 in the second half before Brown spearheaded a Tigers rally. In order for Auburn to come away with a home victory, here are three aspects of the game that are key to a Tigers' victory.
Ja Rule - who was never charged in relation to the scam, but found himself named in a Dollars $100 million class action lawsuit filed against Fyre Media - turned his attention to more specific allegations laid out in the Netflix documentary FYRE: The Greatest Party That Never Happened. Yet, the makers of Hulu's Fyre Fraud paid McFarland an undisclosed amount of money to give them an interview.
Both the documentary and Hulu's Fyre Fraud mention that Billy McFarland's careless actions and dealings surrounding the festival had tremendous impact on the people on the island and their economy. "I heard they paid him somewhere btw 100 to 250... that money was supposed to go to the locals by LAW..."
It's a big claim for someone who used a Fyre Media conference call to argue the organisation was potentially liable for "false advertising" over fraud, but hey: if the documentaries have taught us anything, it's to inherently trust anyone with an outsized sense of self-assurance.
Anyways, Ja Rule still stands by his idea for a visionary music event. "Netflix PAID fuck Jerry who also did the promo for the festival. the docs clearly have Billy at fault but let's blame the rapper lmao ok".
At least, that's what Ja Rule thinks. For his part, Ja Rule hinted that he'd be providing his version of events too, writing, "You ain't getting the goods over Twitter. but I will tell my truth real soon".
