Gronkowski denies racking up giant $102,000 bar tab at casino

Rob Gronkowski has a message for everyone who thinks he dropped a small fortune on alcohol over the weekend - don't buy into the headlines.

In a tweet on Tuesday, the New England Patriots tight end disputed a TMZ report that said he spent more than $102,000 on alcohol at a Connecticut casino.

Gronkowski said he would rather donate such a massive chunk of change to a much more noble cause.

He is pictured donating $110,000 to Boston Children's Hospital.

Despite his love of alcohol and having a good time, Gronkowski has proven to be more on the frugal side.

In his 2015 book 'It's Good to be Gronk' he said he lives off his endorsement deals and not any of his NFL pay.
