Bella Hadid has released a statement following the drama of the Fyre Festival last week. The model headed to Twitter to address the music festival controversy, noting that while she didn't have a direct part in planning the festival, she did have a message for ticket buyers in regards to her role in promoting it.
"Hey guys, I just wanted to address Fyre Festival… Even though this was not my project what so ever, nor was I informed about the production or process of the festival in any shape or form, I do know that is has always been out of great intent and they truly wanted all of us to have the time of our lives," she wrote. "I initially trusted this would be an amazing & memorable experience for all of us, which is why I agree to do one promotion not knowing about the disaster that was to come. I feel so sorry and badly because this is something I couldn't stand by, although of course if I would have known about the outcome, you would have all known too. I hope everyone is safe and back with their families and loved ones…xo."
Bella was among a group of models including Kendall Jenner, Alessandra Ambrosio, Hailey Baldwin, and Emily Ratajkowski all chosen to help promote the event, which was slated to take place April 28 through 30 and May 5 through 7 on the Bahamian private island Fyre Cay. As previously reported, the festival, co-organized by Ja Rule, had attendees shelling out up to $12,000 a ticket. Festival goers later complained that the event was a "complete disaster." The experience reportedly included no security, cancelled flights, and cancelled performances as well as "luxury experiences" that were no more than tent cities and meals that were cheese on white bread.
