Macy Gray has lost a huge chunk of her fortune due to her love of gambling.
The 'I Try' hitmaker has revealed she likes to play card games, and although she has enjoyed winnings of more than US$28,000, she would have been able to buy a house with the thousands of dollars she has lost through bad bets.
She tells Telegraph.co.uk, "I love gambling and that's another bad financial decision I've made; to play cards for money. The most I've won in one night is US$28,000 playing blackjack and when I'm in Vegas I love playing poker and I just lose my mind but not to the point where I think I've got a problem. I don't get up in the middle of the night and go every day, nothing like that."
When asked how much she has lost, she replies, "Hundreds of thousands I guess. Not millions though but I've definitely lost a lot of money. Enough to go and buy myself another house."
Gray's accountants also give her a weekly allowance so she will not spend too much money.
