Remember Don Johnson, the Wyoming executive who took a trio of Atlantic City casinos for $15 million earlier this year?It turns out he likes partying just as much as he likes the blackjack tables.
The businessman, who hates being called a “professional gambler,” bought the world’s biggest and most expensive bottle of champagne at a London club earlier this week while in town to see his pal Jon Bon Jovi perform, according to The Mirror.
The bottle, a 30-liter Armand De Brignac Midas, cost around $192,000.
But most of it wasn’t even consumed.
His lifestyle manager, Sophie Raibin, told The Mirror, “it went everywhere – every person in the room was sprayed. The crowd went ballistic. I’ve never seen anything like it.”
Johnson actually prefers vodka to champagne. But he’s earned a reputation as the “champagne king” for spending exorbitant amounts of money on bottles of bubbly at clubs around the world.
According to Raibin, Johnson “has spent millions on champagne in his life.”
