New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkoski racked up a bill north of $100,000 at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Connecticut this weekend, according to TMZ.

Gronk and his "20-man party crew" ordered 160 bottles of champagne, including $27,000 worth of Dom Perignon Rose.

Not surprisingly, Gronkowski ditched his shirt as the night unfolded.

The 28-year-old pass-catcher is due to make $4.25 million next season, though as TMZ noted, the casino might've covered the bill.

In a Twitter post Monday night, Gronkowski contested the lofty bill, writing "Don't always believe what you read." He posted a photo of him presenting a $110,000 check to Boston Children's Hospital in February, indicating he'd rather devote money to charitable causes.

Don't always believe what you read. This is where 100k + would go to before that. https://t.co/2nzSfBk8pV
