Talk about a twist. Omar Amanat — the co-owner of the Bridgehampton house who rented it out on Airbnb only to have it allegedly trashed during a charity bash — has been charged with conspiracy to defraud investors in the now-bankrupt tech startup Kit Digital. When news of the rowdy party first broke, host and hedge funder Brett Barna was very publicly fired from Moore Capital Management. But now Amanat, who was extradited from Colombia to the U.S. last week to face charges in the Kit Digital scam, appears to be the one in far greater trouble. [Page Six] — Cathaleen Chen
