Fyre Fest Restauranteur Wants 'Hood Winked' Ja Rule to Donate $100K to Her GoFundMe

Despite Ja Rule’s insistence that he would NEVER SCAM another human being, let alone thousands, one restauranteur who fell victim to Fyre Festival says he owes her at least $100,000. Now might be a good time to pull up those receipts?

According to TMZ, Maryann Rolle, the Bahamian restauranteur who recently launched a GoFundMe seeking to replenish funds lost in the Fyre Fest disaster, would like Ja Rule to donate to her cause. “I feel from the bottom of his heart he is sorry,” she said. But, she pointed out, sorry isn’t going to put the $50,000 she lost on Ja Rule & Friends back in her bank account. “If he’s sorry, he should be donating something to me,” she said. “Sorry is more than a word, it’s an action. I hope he puts his sorry into action.”

Rolle used that $50,000—which she drained from her own savings—to feed folks who got stuck on Great Exuma during the great Fyre Fraud of 2018. She detailed that plight in Netflix’s Fyre Fest documentary, rendering her one of Fyre Fest’s few sympathetic characters and drawing some much-needed attention to her current financial struggles. Her GoFundMe, which launched about a week ago, has thus far raised $169,702.

Ja Rule, meanwhile, is very resounding in his belief that it was he who was duped.

I look forward to hearing news of his GoFundMe in the near future.


Waka Flocka and Tammy Rivera renewed their vows in Mexico this weekend. They both looked very nice.

The couple married five years ago, but never had a real ceremony. ““I told Waka that if we made it five years I wanted my dream wedding,” Rivera told People. “Today my dream has come true. I am marrying my best friend and soulmate all over again. When God made Waka, he wrote my name beside his.”

Love is lovely, with or without Marriage Boot Camp.

Do I find this timing suspect? Yes, but don’t mind me, for my brain has been broken by the Internet.
