Jeff Bezos, the world’s second-richest man, gave a donation at a star-studded Hollywood charity gala Saturday night—and reportedly got some ribbing for it. The Amazon billionaire, accompanied by girlfriend Lauren Sanchez, still gifted a substantial sum to the Baby 2 Baby charity—$500,000. In all, the event reportedly raised $8.5 million, honoring Kobe Bryant’s widow, Vanessa, with its “Giving Tree” award. An insider who attended the socially conscious bash told Page Six, “Everyone was waiting for him to donate something, but he didn’t. Then someone donated a million dollars. And then a little later, [Bezos] donated $500,000. There was an audible groan from the room. If someone else can donate a million, Jeff Bezos can donate more than a million.”
Update: On Wednesday, a source close to the event clarified that no one donated $1 million. The amount was input incorrectly due to a clerical error.
