Ja Rule's Failed Music Festival

It wasn't exactly what concert goers were promised when they hit the beach at the Fyre Music Festival this weekend.

Now Ja Rule and Fyre Festival co-founder Billy McFarland are having to answer some questions.  Attendees were supposed to be at a luxury two-day music festival in the Bahamas complete with luxury accommodations and catered food.   Instead concert-goers got tents and cheese sandwiches. People were stuck at the airport for hours when they tried to leave.  

A $100 million proposed class-action lawsuit was filed yesterday.  Ja Rule did release a statement on Twitter on Friday, saying he was "heartbroken" about that the event and it "was not a scam." 

What a disaster.
