Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich recently enjoyed a lavish dinner in New York.

TMZ reports that Abramovich spent over $52,000 entertaining nine guests at a famous Italian restaurant in New York last week.

The Blues owner also made sure the staff enjoyed the night - leaving a cool $5,000 as a tip!

However, although he admits to dining there on Friday with his pregnant girlfriend Dasha Zhukova, his son Arkady and three business associates, Abramovich denies he spent so much.

A spokesman said: "That bill does not belong to them. They spent only a fraction of that amount. Maybe it is someone else’s bill."
