What’s the Deal With Michael Rubin’s White Party?

July 4th has come and gone, but the Instagram photo feed from Michael Rubin’s annual White Party is—luckily for us—endless. Every year, the billionaire CEO of Fanatics and former Philadelphia 76ers co-owner throws a one-of-a-kind bash in the Hamptons with a guest list that’s enough to make Anna Wintour shiver. This year, however, the Kardashian-beloved event just got even more exclusive, according to The New York Times Times:The guest list, curated in part by Rubin’s fiancée, model Camille Fishel, was whittled down to 400 of the most paparazzi-friendly celebrities, athletes and influencers, with 300 VIPs receiving custom lithographed invitations designed by visual artist George Condo. A casual affair in a multimillion-dollar mansion, if you will. Let’s get down to business, shall we?

This year’s A-list guests included Tom Brady, Kim and Khloé Kardashian, Beyoncé and Jay-Z, Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly, Drake, Camila Cabello, Quavo, Emily Ratajkowski, Leonardo DiCaprio and more. Draped in white gowns and bodycon dresses, guests mingled in the 8,000-square-foot Water Mill mansion and were serenaded by Shaboozey, Mary J. Blige and Lil Wayne. After fireworks seemingly shot off from an ocean barge, GloRilla, Megan Thee Stallion, Machine Gun Kelly, A$AP Ferg, Alesso and Travis Scott continued the evening’s surprise musical performances from a tennis court-turned-nightclub. “Imagine walking into Liv Miami,” Fishel told the Times in an interview.

The 49-year-old man Spider Man The actor sparked dating rumors after he was photographed with his arm around 20-year-old actress and model Lily Chee. “Page Six” reports that the couple was seen leaving the party together with Maguire’s hand resting on Chee’s lower back. (Maguire was previously married to jewelry designer Jennifer Meyer for nine years before the two divorced in 2016; they share two daughters, Ruby, 17, and Otis, 15.) According to “Page Six,” Maguire’s longtime friend Leonardo DiCaprio didn’t join Maguire and Chee on their way out, but if anyone were to approve of a relationship with an age gap, I guess it would be him?

We don’t know, but both influencers attended the festivities, so it’s possible they crossed paths somewhere along the beachfront mansion. Earle and Pohl attended the University of Miami together and rose to TikTok fame in 2022, frequently appearing in each other’s photos and posts and even calling each other best friends. Despite running in the same circles, the two haven’t been photographed together since 2023, sparking rumors of a friendship breakdown. The two also didn’t appear in each other’s Instagram photos from this year’s White Party, so make of that what you will.

According to representatives for Ruben and Fishel, some of those who weren’t invited tried to pay to get into the party, with several offering $1 million for an RSVP and at least one person offering $5 million. Unfortunately for these millionaires, even a big cash bribe can’t get you in the door.

Other celebrities have been transparent about not getting a golden ticket to George Condo: “I never went, I wasn’t invited,” Bethenny Frankel said in a TikTok video about the party, which she compared to a “summer Met Gala with stars and stunts.” The TV personality also claimed Dave Portnoy wasn’t on the guest list and called Rubin a “hard worker” for Condo’s artistic invitations. “If he tries hard, it seems like he’s successful,” Frankel said. “He’s a billionaire.”

Those wealthy and charmed enough to get in enjoyed fatty tuna from Nobu, margherita pizza from Lucali and meatballs from East Harlem restaurant Rao’s, and according to the TimesEach guest took home a pair of custom Air Jordan 1 Low sneakers, an exclusive collaboration between Nike and Scott. Kudos to them, and good luck to all the dry cleaners who had to clean celebrity self-tanners off the surviving White Party clothes!
