Wynn Las Vegas took a savage potshot at the younger, hipper competitor focusing the world’s attention on the north side of the Strip this week. That potshot involved Justin Timberlake, headliner of the Fontainebleau’s grand opening. After the party, Timberlake shared a photo on social media taken from behind him and his wife, actress Jessica Biel, as they walked back to their hotel room.

Only casino carpetologists — and those are a thing – noticed from the carpet patterns that it was The Wynn they were traipsing through, not Fontainebleau. So The Wynn responded with its own Instagram post on Thursday.

According TMZ, rooms at the Fontainebleau were not available on Wednesday to members of the public, who also were not allowed to enter the Fontainebleau until 12:01 a.m. on Thursday — by which time all celebrities had already been ushered into a private high-limit room to watch Timberlake roll the casino’s ceremonial first craps shoot.

However, rooms were available on Wednesday to Timberlake and Biel — and any of the other invited VIP guests — presumably for free.

Wynn execs knew full well where the power couple chose to stay instead, since they’re the ones who booked them. However, the identity of guests is fiercely guarded as a paramount rule of luxury resorts, so they kept mum about it.

Until word spread about Timberlake’s gaffe.

The Wynn captioned the same photo of the power couple with: “Where everyone ends up. #OnlyatWynn.”

As Vital Vegas  noted, The Wynn has had a contentious relationship with its new neighbor, threatening to sue Fontainebleau this summer for poaching its best employees.

What Goes Around … Comes Around

To be fair, most celebrities stay in Las Vegas resorts other than the ones in which they perform. This is mostly to shake stalkers and fans searching for them there.

When Adele first came to town in November 2022 to perform at Caesars Palace, for example, the superstar was booked into the Palazzo Suites at the Rio, which is owned by Caesars Palace parent Caesars Entertainment.

But unintentional snubs can sting just as harshly as intentional ones. Often, appearance matters more than intention does.

Timberlake was paid a reported $1.61 million to sing for an hour for Cher, Kim Kardashian, and the other VIPs packing the newest Strip casino’s private grand opening Wednesday night, Dec.13. Yet all that money couldn’t buy his loyalty for a single night?

The Wynn later deleted its post, no doubt reconsidering it as a betrayal of Timberlake — which it was. However, it was up long enough to get screen captured by Vital Vegas and TMZ.

Incidentally, Adele didn’t end up liking her digs at the Rio and later upgraded to — where else? –The Wynn.
