Bruno Mars’ Alleged Gambling Debt Debunked By MGM Resorts International

According to reports, iconic American singer, Bruno Mars, accumulated a $50 million debt from gambling during his time in Las Vegas. However, executives of the casino have clarified the situation. MGM Resorts International refuted claims made by Complex on Monday, March 18, that the megastar singer owes them anything.

According to NewsNation last week, Mars’ gambling losses started to mount, leaving a sizable gap between his winnings and his debt. Since his adolescent years, Bruno Mars has been a compulsive gambler. In a 2013 interview, he even talked to GQ about his early days of card games. Additionally, he stated that the first time he went to a casino, he was 19.

The renowned musician has been doing a residency at Park MGM since 2016. It was recently extended and renewed well into 2024 after the original plans to conclude it in August were canceled; it is unknown at this point whether this was because of his supposed debt.

Bruno Mars has so far given 100 performances as part of his current residency; in 2022, he also collaborated with Anderson .Paak, as a Silk Sonic member, for 48 gigs.  More than 120,000 people attended the residency, which brought in over $53 million, making it the highest-grossing concert residency at MGM history.
