Remember when P Diddy, Puff Daddy, Sean Combs used to have his famous “White Party,” well Diddy retired and/or passed to the torch to Philadelphia billionaire and former Sixers owner Michael Rubin. Last night, Kenny Chesney partied with Joel Embiid, James Harden and more celebs at an incredible 4th of July bash. In case you need a recap on Michael, his story is amazing. He grew up in Lafayette Hill where he started a ski shop in his parents’ basement when he was 12 and two years later, using $2,500 in bar mitzvah gifts as seed capital and a lease signed by his father, he opened a formal ski shop in Conshohocken named Mike’s Ski and Sport. He attended Villanova before dropping out after a semester. Clearly, school wasn’t going to stop him.

He currently is the CEO of Fanatics and executive chairman of Rue Gilt Groupe. Yes, as in Rue La La. He was a part owner of the Philadelphia 76ers up until last season when he sold his share because he said it was going to interfere with Fanatics, which really blew up. He is very close friends with Joel Embiid and they have called each other brothers.

From what I know, Michael and his family live on the Main Line, however, he has a huge 50-million-dollar mansion in the Hamptons where he spends most of his Summer. His net worth is reportedly around 10.5 BILLION DOLLARS. Every Summer Michael throws a very famous 4th of July “White Party.” Year after year, the more famous Michael gets, the bigger the party is. This year was definitely the biggest. There were so many celebrities there from movies, music, sports, etc. Someone made a hilarious comment on Instagram and said it’s like a Marvel Movie crossover. Lol! Think about it though, when do you see that many A-list celebrities get together? Usually, it’s that music stays together, movies, sports, etc. This combo of everyone under one roof is wild. Besides Kenny Chesney at the bash, Joel Embiid, James Harden, Tobias Harris, and Tom Brady, some of the other guests included Jay-Z, Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, Ben Affleck, Tom Brady, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kim Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, DJ Khaled and Kevin Hart. Usher, Ne-Yo and Jack Harlow performed.

  • Michael Rubin

    Michael lives on the Main Line and spends majority of his time in Philly.  He has an older daughter who is still in high school, and two little girls who are under 3.  He doesn’t hid that he’s a huge Sixers fan, but he’s very close friends with Patriots owner Robert Craft and seems like he roots for the Patriots. There were no Eagles players in attendance which I thought was interesting.

  • (VIDEO) The Party Was Like a Movie

    The house is worth over 50 million and in the Hamptons.  Michael even caption the video “A Literal Movie.” I do appreciate how much he loves what he does and how he wants to bring people together.  He also is a huge voice in the social justice movement and does alot of great work.

  • James Harden Talking to Sixers Owner

    Since Michael Rubin is no longer an owner, Josh Harris is the main partner. Last week James Harden declined his option which means he will most likely be traded from the Sixers and not be on the team next season. James talking to Josh is interesting. Maybe they were trying to work something out for him to stay?

  • Tobias Harris With His Sixers Teammates

    Tobias was also at the White Party and seemed to enjoy hanging with his teammates.  Former Sixer, and my FAVORITE JJ Redick was also there and was hanging with his former Sixer teammates.  I wish JJ would come back.

  • James Joel and Tobias

    James Harden is technically still a 76er and seemed to be enjoying his time with his teammates.  He posted a few pictures from the White Party with Joel Embiid and Tobias Harris.  Hopefully this is good bonding time and that means he’s staying with the Sixers.

  • Kenny Looking Handsome

    With all these huge movie stars and athletes, was the one and only Kenny Chesney! We know he has gotten close to Robert Kraft over the years, and sure enough, they posed for a very loving picture together. It looks like we might have finally gotten to see Kenny’s girlfriend (see in next slide).

  • Is This Kenny Chesney's Girlfriend?

    Michael Rubin’s fiancé Camille posted a pic with Kenny and a beautiful woman named Mary. When you click her profile, it’s mostly pics of dogs, but it seems like the majority of the pics are in Franklin, Tennessee, where Kenny lives, and he likes all her pics!

  • Joel Embiid and Anne De Paula

    Joel and his fiance Anne are such a gorgeous couple.
