Celine Dion's Husband Slams 'Million Dollars A Week' Gambling Claims
Jan Jones, a senior official at Harrah's Entertainment Inc, which own Caesars Palace, sparked controversy by telling a British newspaper Angelil gambles as much as $1 million a week at the casino, but she has since insisted she was speaking hypothetically and apologized for referring to Angelil by name.
Angelil has been a regular visitor to the casino during his wife's five-year singing engagement at the hotel, which ends on December 15, and Caesars Palace have revealed his casino losses in 2005 and 2006 total exactly $230,000.
However, the losses are offset by tournament poker winnings of $259,709 during the same period. Caesars Palace president Gary Selesner says, "In life and in business, Rene is a winner, and one of the finest people I have ever known. Caesars Palace is very sorry for any embarrassment that may have resulted from the media speculation."
