Jay-Z allegedly loses $500,000 at poker

Gotta Get that Paper, Dog

It's a hard-knock life for rap mogul Jay-Z, at least when he's playing poker.

According to Sammy Farha, Eli Elezra, Ted Forrest or Doyle Brunson might have had something to do with it.

Jay-Z is most well-known for his musical achievements but he's also the former president of Def Jam Recordings and Roc-A-Fella Records. Jay-Z also co-owns the 40/40 club and the New Jersey Nets. He has a net worth estimate of $547 million, so he's one of the few people in the world who could conceivably sit down quite comfortably at a nosebleed-stakes poker game.

This story has not been confirmed and one does have to wonder how a player could bet $500,000 at a low-stakes table.
