Rob Gronkowski is known as a party animal. He likes to have fun, and there’s nothing wrong with that as long as he doesn’t get himself into any trouble – which he hasn’t.
This past weekend was no different with the Patriots on break until training camp. He partied it up at Foxwoods Resort and Casino in Connecticut with Flo Rida, and according to TMZ, he and his friends ran up a $100,000 tab.
Gronk responded to the report on Twitter Monday night after it made rounds, saying he’d donate $100,000 to the Boston Children’s Hospital before he’d spend that amount of money on liquor.
Don’t always believe what you read. This is where 100k + would go to before that. pic.twitter.com/2nzSfBk8pV

His friend, Robert Goon, also responded to TMZ’s report with a hilarious tweet about Gronk’s frugality.

If you know Gronk, you probably realize that he’s not a big spender. In his book from 2015, he said he hasn’t spent a dime of his NFL contract money and has been living completely off of his endorsement deals.
Yes, he makes $9 million per year, but that doesn’t mean he’d run up a tab for $100,000. And in the end, who cares if he did? On second thought, maybe his boss Bill Belichick would mind.
