fight in casinoWhat happens in Vegas does not always stay in Vegas is the popular slogan. And that was never more evident when two high profile celebrities got into a very public shouting match.

Perhaps the biggest casino news to come out of Las Vegas this week is the feud that erupted between famous casino mogul Steve Wynn and casino celebrity and movie star George Clooney.

The war of words between the owner of the Wynn and Encore casinos and Hollywood heartthrob Clooney, who starred in “Gravity”, started two weeks ago when Wynn bashed President Barack Obama during dinner with Clooney at a Las Vegas restaurant. Clooney stormed out of the dinner, but not before giving Wynn a tongue lashing. But according to Las Vegas sources, the two men have a totally different version of what actually occurred.

Wynn was telling jokes and trying to get under Clooney’s skin. When the casino owner started peppering Obama with criticism for the president’s controversial health care plan, Clooney became incensed and exploded.
Clooney told the Las Vegas Review-Journal newspaper his account of what happened.

“Steve likes to go on rants. … He called the president an a–hole. … that is a fact,” Clooney said. “I said the president was my longtime friend, and then he said, ‘your friend is an a–hole.’ At that point I told Steve that HE was an a–hole, and I wasn’t going to sit at his table while he was being such a jackass … and I walked out.”

Wynn said Clooney was drunk from doing shots of tequila and he even dropped an “f-bomb” before storming off into the night. Billionaire Wynn, who is 72 and does not back down from anyone, said the 52-year-old Clooney is actually a lot of fun to be with when he has not been drinking.

“If you have a chance to drink with him, you want to get there early and don’t stay late,” Wynn said.

Clooney said his tiff with Wynn included a lot of “adjectives and adverbs,” and “had nothing to do with politics and everything to do with character.”
Even though the casino feud took place two weeks ago at a restaurant in the Encore, the verbal sparring lives on and it is fans of the two men who have hit the jackpot for entertainment.
