While you were sleeping, one Chinese billionaire was having the party of the year.
Saturday night (Nov 3) in a massive rented tent at the foot of the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas, a star-studded bash rivaling even the best Academy Awards parties, was secretly being held behind throngs of presidential-style security, four checkpoints deep.READ MORE: Americans Are Quitting At Record Rates.

The ultra private event was a birthday party for a Chinese billionaire simply referred to as “Jay Lo.”
A party-goer who requested anonymity told CBS Local “security was matched only by what you would imagine from the Secret Service. Guests and celebrities understood photos were totally off-limits.”
The party had a unique dress code as well. “Everyone, including celebrities and talent, were required required to wear either a tuxedos or a red dress,” said the tuxedoed reveler.
For inside the 300 person VIP-only shindig was a cavalcade of celebrities including Robert De Niro, Tobey Maguire, Jamie Foxx, Benicio Del Toro, Zack Galifianakis, Bradley Cooper, Britney Spears, Pharrell Williams, Busta Rhymes, Leonardo DiCaprio, Olympic medalist Michael Phelps, Korean pop-sensation PSY, Ludacris, Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, Chris Brown and more.
Not your normal drink service, complimentary cocktails included entire bottles of Crystal, slid across a 24-foot bar carved from solid ice. With drinks in hand, party-goers enjoyed a massive indoor Ferris wheel.
Straight out of The Wizard Of Oz, more than 20 umpa loompas frolicked throughout the party while scantily clad Circue Du Solei-style aerial acrobats performed overhead.
“At one point, DiCarprio was rapping on stage with Q-Tip and Busta Rhymes.”
When it came time to sing happy birthday, one Miss Britney Spears stepped up to the do the honors, after which, a friend reportedly presented the birthday boy with a rather unique 4-wheeled gift; a Bugatti Veyron, a 1000+ horsepower, $2.5M supercar.
