A Las Vegas casino has denied Bruno Mars racked up a $50 million (£39 million) gambling debt.

A representative for MGM Resorts International issued a formal statement on Monday to describe a supportive relationship with the Uptown Funk singer and refute reports Bruno, 38, had incurred multimillion-dollar debts at the company's casinos.

"We're proud of our relationship with Bruno Mars, one of the world's most thrilling and dynamic performers," the statement read.

"From his shows at Dolby Live at Park MGM to the new Pinky Ring lounge at Bellagio, Bruno's brand of entertainment attracts visitors from around the globe."

The statement explicitly denied Bruno had accrued debts with the business.

"MGM and Bruno's partnership is longstanding and rooted in mutual respect," the statement continued. "Any speculation otherwise is completely false; he has no debt with MGM. Together, we are excited to continue creating unforgettable experiences for our guests."

The response came after NewsNation published unsubstantiated claims from anonymous "sources" that Bruno was indebted to the casino because he had been gambling in between his performances.
