Much like Halley's Comet, a playboy that spends as much money as mysterious Malaysian man Taek Jho Low only "comes around once in a lifetime," according to Manhattan nightclub owners. The city's club owners have been fighting to woo the Wharton Business School alum, who has spent tens of thousands of dollars purchasing more than 100 bottles of Cristal champagne in a single night, according to Page Six. Little is known about the 28-year-old other than his big spending habits, his address at the ritzy the Park Imperial, and his celebrity pals — and sources say he'd like to keep it that way. A friend, who described Low as a "dealmaker with interests in the Mideast and Asia in construction, oil and gas," told the paper: "He's not an arms dealer. And he doesn't want all this publicity."
