The agencies that represent these models and many others are set to be subpoenaed in the Fyre Festival’s bankruptcy documents according to E!. While investigations into the festival continue, the bankruptcy trustee Gregory Messer filed an order in the bankruptcy court to examine a group of agencies. On Monday, the order was approved.

There is still widespread confusion about what happened to the $26 million that Billy McFarland, Fyre Festival’s founder, raised through investments. The total number of payments being investigated so far equals $11.3 million, which is according to the number of orders.
