Wang Sicong, the only son of China’s newly-recrowned richest man Wang Jianlin, managed to drop a whopping 200,000 RMB on drinks and food this Halloween during one crazy night out in a club in Beijing’s famous Sanlitun district.
Pictures emerged online of the preposterous US$30,000 bill racked up by the 27-year-old fuerdai and his large entourage. Dressed in a black hat, Wang is seen surrounded by female friends (who are clearly having a great time) at the party where he rented a VIP area.
With a father worth US$34.4 billion, it’s probably not a surprise that Wang has already previously made a name for himself through his frivolous attitude towards money. In May of this year he outraged netizens by posting a picture to his dog’s Weibo account of the animal sporting no less than two Apple watches worth 126,000 RMB a piece.
In January, he hired out an entire resort in Sanya to celebrate his birthday, and even splurged on inviting T-ara, one of his top 5 favorite Korean girl bands, to put on a private gig for him and his guests. He’s also the proud owner of a £50 million private equity firm focusing on computer gaming and was one of the groomsmen at Angelababy and Huang Xiaoming’s fairytale wedding held in Shanghai earlier last month.
For a much more serious and in depth look into the stereotype that is Wang Sicong, check out the interview he did for a BBC documentary in August.
