A rapper lost nearly $1 million during a recent trip to Las Vegas.

According to a report from The Source, the artist known as “Young Thug” lost roughly $800,000. The story was based a post from one of his social media accounts.

“Man, Vegas just won $800,000 from me, man,” said the hip hop artist whose real name is Jeffrey Williams. “Man, I threw liquor everywhere in that motherf***er.”

Williams has a reported net worth of $8 million, so his recent misfortune cost him 10% of everything he owns. He currently has a song in the Billboard Top 10 called Go Crazy that he created with Chris Brown. Williams did not disclose at which casino he lost the money.

He’s not the first celebrity to have some bad luck in the pit. NHL forward Evander Kane was sued by the Cosmopolitan over $500,000 in unpaid gambling debts. He subsequently filed for bankruptcy.
