Who Is This Young Millionaire, Taek Jho Low?

Everyone’s taking notice of a rich guy who’s apparently trying to single-handedly save the nightlife industry and give leggy models everywhere something to do. His name is Taek Jho Low, a 20-something Wharton grad who loves Cristal.

Not much is known about the baby-faced Malaysian, but tales of his largess are swirling about and frequently as he has been dropping tens of thousands of dollars at hot spots around the city. Here’s what we know:

Name: Take Jho Low
Age: 28
Occupation: Officially he is an adviser to some international corporations, but no one knows what that means or seems to believe that is the truth. People say he’s involved in oil, gas, and construction. He and was appointed to the board of Malaysian bank UBG Berhad last year. It’s rumored that he’s an arms dealer.
Residence: Rents several apartments in the Park Imperial on West 57th St in midtown that house him and his staff—including several body guards. Famous neighbors include Daniel Craig and Sean Combs.
Motorcade: Travels about town with his entourage in a fleet of Escalades.
Nightclub Spending:

  • Spent $160,000 in one night at Avenue this September during Fashion Week.
  • Routinely spends between $50,000 and $60,000 at Pink Elephant.
  • Bought Lindsay Lohan 23 bottles of Cristal at 1OAK when she was celebrating her 23rd birthday.

Birthday Party:

  • Just celebrated his 28th year starting last Wednesday with a four-day bash at Ceasar’s Palace in Las Vegas.
  • Megan Fox was flown out to Vegas to hang out with the birthday boy, who routinely surrounds himself with models.
  • The hotel pool was surrounded by caged lions and tigers and filled with girls in bikinis. Later, at a nightclub, Low bought 120 bottles of Cristal for the revelers.
  • Jamie Foxx gave him a red sports car for a present.
  • Paris Hilton and Usher also attended the party.

Supposed Benefactor: Kuwaiti Hamad Alwazzan

Quote: “A Jho Low comes around once in a lifetime,” one nightlife insider told Page Six about the man’s big-spending ways.READ MORE click here


KOTA BARU: PKR Youth chief Shamsul Iskandar Mat Akin has challenged Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak to disclose details of the mystery man who has been linked to his son and wife Rosmah Mansor in the controversial Sungai Besi air base (TUDM) land deal.

Speaking to reporters after the morning session of the youth wing Angkatan Muda Keadilan (AMK) congress, he said speculations were rife that the man, Joh Low, had secured a RM500 million contract for the development of TUDM in Sungai Besi.

“We have been told that he (Low) had secured a RM500 million contract for the TUDM deal. This is a serious allegation. We want the PM to clarify this,“ he said.

Shamsul said Low’s lifestyle in the US was also a matter of concern.

He said last year the New York Post had reported that a Malaysian known as Joh Low had “spent US$50,000 in one night in New York”.

‘We are wondering how a 20-something person could come into so much wealth,” he said.

Earlier, in his speech, Shamsul urged the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) to investigate Low’s flamboyant lifestyle.

“We want the MACC to find out where he got his wealth. We also want to know how he linked up with our political bigwigs,” he said.

Last night at the official opening of the congress, Shamsul said he would be making an “explosive revelation” of the TUDM deal, which was linked to an “associate” of Rosmah.

Without disclosing the name of the associate, Shamsul said the free-spending mystery man was a wealthy 28-year-old Chinese with ties to Hollywood.

Shamsul said the young businessman had been spotted on the Hollywood social scene with Megan Fox, star of blockbuster movie, Transformers.

Promising to reveal more at today’s congress, he said: “Tomorrow (today), I will reveal things about a particular personality, a graduate of an overseas university.”

  4. That friend is international man about town Hamad Alwazzan, who also lives at the Park Imperial, according to an e-mail he sent to The Post.

    In the e-mail, Alwazzan claims it is he, not Low, who’s the big spender in town.

    “I have been on holiday in New York since August 2009 and grown quite fond of the city,” Alwazzan wrote. “I am especially fond of investment opportunities in real estate, as well as the food, quality of life, and lifestyle.”

    As for the $160,000 bar tab, he wrote: “[It] was to celebrate the engagement of a close personal friend to his longtime girlfriend, which was jointly hosted by myself and 19 other close friends. I don’t have an exact breakdown of the cost, but it was a mixture of entertainment, food and drinks — and it happened to be during Fashion Week.”
