Jay Chou lost $2 mil at Marina Bay Sands Casino in 2 days

Singapore - TAIWANESE pop star Jay Chou lost nearly S$2 million at a casino in Singapore, Nanyang Siang Pau reported.

The superstar had visited the Marina Bay Sands Casino during his concert tour in the island republic last month.

He gambled off between S$100,000 and S$200,000 per bet.

In just two days, Chou was said to have lost almost $2 million playing bacarrat.

A customer of the casino said Chou was accompanied by his manager and male friends.

According to the customer, Chou had good etiquette on the gambling table and he only wanted to be served by "aunties".

He said the star had only lost S$1,000 at the casino.

"The person who lost that much money was not Jay."
