Did LeBron James Spend $171,000 at a Las Vegas Nightclub?
Hot on the hells of an alleged $189,000 receipt racked up during a Cinco de Mayo party at the Tryst nightclub in the Wynn resort in Las Vegas comes rumors that LeBron James once racked up an even bigger bill at XS, one of the Wynn's other nightclub. $171,973 to be exact, and that's before a tip, so the final bill would have been much larger. Obviously, this could be a complete fake or be a tab that belongs to someone else, but we can't help but gawk.
BroBible reports that they were sent the bill anonymously by someone claiming it belonged to LeBron. The bill includes a $50,000 six-liter bottle of Cristal as well as 33 regular bottles of Cristal at $1,800-a-piece. $192 was spent on Red Bull alone, while bottles of water totaled $272 (obviously it was Fiji water). Nine bottles of Patron, some Grey Goose, Dom, and two six packs of Bud Lights (at $108) fill out the bill.
Assuming a 20 percent tip was added, the total bill would have come out to more than $203,000.
Again, we have no idea this actually belongs to LeBron, though he has visited XS before. Just week after his "decision," he was in Las Vegas for a scrimmage featuring Team USA players and popped up on stage while rapper Wale was playing along with Dwyane Wade, Derrick Rose, Lamar Odom and other NBA superstars.
