Steve Wynn Throws An Elbow...

right through an original Picasso painting that he had just agreed to sell for a staggering (and record-breaking) $139,000,000. Apparently, while showing off the painting to several celebrity friends who wanted to see it, Mr. Wynn backed up a little too close and accidentally put his elbow through the canvas while gesturing with his arm. Witnesses say the hole was about the size of a silver dollar with 3 inch tears radiating outwards.

Amazingly enough, the guy stayed calm and continued on with the tour. The art collector who had previously agreed to buy the painting has been let out of the deal and Mr. Wynn and his wife are repairing the painting and have decided to keep it.
