NEW YORK - In what could be called as a lavish fight, a pair of rival billionaires set a new world record at a New York nightclub to see who could order the most champagne.
Zhen Low- the younger brother of big-spending Malaysian billionaire Jho Low-squared off against Winston Fisher of the prominent New York real-estate family at Les Caves du Roy nightclub in St. Tropez.
At the end of the night, Low was the “winner” by raking a bill of a staggering 2 million euros-or 2.6 million dollars- according to an announcement made at the club, reports the New York Post.
Witnessing the revelry/rivalry were Thor Equities CEO Joseph Sitt, SBE CEO Sam Nazarian and Paris Hilton, who helped Jho Low celebrate his 28th birthday last year at a four-day party in Las Vegas.
The Low brothers are third-generation members of a distinguished Penang-based family involved in industries ranging from real estate to high-tech across the world. (ANI)
