When Billionaires attack.
Las Vegas Tycoon Steve Wynn accidentally put his elbow through a Picasso he had planned to sell to another Billioniare art collector Steve Cohen for what would have been a record $139 million. Wynn was showing off the Painting entitled “Le Reve” to some of his fancy rich friends including screenwriter Nora Ephron who wrote about it in her Blog.
He raised his hand to show us something about the painting — and at that moment, his elbow crashed backwards right through the canvas. There was a terrible noise. Wynn stepped away from the painting, and there, smack in the middle of Marie-Therese Walter’s plump and allegedly-erotic forearm, was a black hole the size of a silver dollar – or, to be more exactly, the size of the tip of Steve Wynn’s elbow
“Oh shit,” he said. “Look what I’ve done.” The rest of us were speechless. “Thank God it was me,” he said.
No Shit Stevie!! That was a $40 million elbowing you just performed……..Normally you can get one for about 100 bucks.
