Longtime Country-western star, Kenny Rogers, was fined $50,000 today for shoving two cameramen trying to peek at his cards. Looks like the Gambler didn’t know when to hold ‘em. “Mr. Rogers’ behavior was unprofessional, unwarranted and completely unacceptable for a country music star,” commissioner of the Grand Ole Opry said in a statement.
Kenny Rogers’ Roasters restaurants will be closed to protest the fine. “Those cameramen were completely out of line. This was a high-stakes game of Texas Hold’em,” said a spokesman for the resaurateur.
