A couple of weeks ago, reports began to surface claiming Bruno Mars, Grammy-winning singer known for hits like "Uptown Funk" and "24K Magic," had racked up a whopping $50 million gambling debt at an MGM Resorts International property.  The allegations were shocking, painting a picture of a wildly successful artist on the financial brink.

An exclusive Deuxmoi source alleged, “I heard Bruno was in debt back in 2022, which is why he’s always doing residencies with MGM. Now it makes sense since he’s always selling at his shows, so they don’t have a problem with it. Now they have his ‘club’ at Bellagio. Just a way to make more money.”

The situation even got to the point where Bruno was throwing MGM freebies just to cover owed costs. Another exclusive source shares, “Allegedly, he would have to go perform for free to pay off the debt sometimes. I guess MGM finally got tired of it.” An additional exclusive source added, “I can confirm that, as of 2019, this was very real. He would perform all his shows for free.” Bruno “adds a lot of shows spur of the moment” the source explained. In regards to his Bellagio-based club, the source added, “He just opened Pinky Ring, which is something no musical artist has done before. So make of that what you will.”

While the true nature of Mars' gambling habits remains unclear, the source did note how Bruno “LOVES to gamble and is granted huge casino lines of credits.” 

One thing is certain…Bruno's career shows no signs of slowing down as he continues to sell out arenas worldwide, remaining a popular choice for residencies.

Please note that this past week MGM Grand denied these rumors stating, “MGM and Bruno’s partnership is longstanding and rooted in mutual respect. Any speculation otherwise is completely false; he has no debt with MGM.”
